The Dreadtober challenge this week is to create a base for our Dread. Not only am I goint to try to meet this challenge I also have added an extra "Dread" to the fun. To run the basic detachment in my Genestealer Cult I needed to add a sentinel. I got lucky and found a Forgeworld sentinel for half price. Lets take a look...
Before getting to the new model, I needed to work on my Ironstrider. Last time, I left off working on blocking out the basic colors. I still had some of that to do but I wanted to get started on the basing.
First up I made some terrain out of pink foam as I have done on the rest of my Skitarii. These are shaped as rocks and placed randomly on the base. I then base coated them grey.
I then covered the rest of the base with Agrellen Earth technical paint. Once this dried all nice and cracklely(not a word), I added a protective coat of modge podge. Lastly I added a couple of shrubs.
|the shrubs are hiding behind the rocks and leg.|
To finish off I will need to add some highlights to the rocks and the base is done. I also added in the rest of the basic colors. This just leaves the highlights left on the walker part. I should have the drivers done next week and be finished before the end of the month.
Next up the new Sentinel. It was a bit damaged in the transport. It also didn't have a driver or a weapon.
I added in a driver with a genestealer cult head. I also added om a roll cage with the aid of some greenstuff.
I took an extra autocannon from my dragoon kit and magnetized it so I can swap out other weapons later if I get them. I would like to get a lascannon or a missile pod.
I will need to base coat him before I can start painting it. I still haven't decided on how I want to paint it. I am thinking I will try to match my IG army and use a green scheme. This way I could always use him in either IG or Cult army.
So with a little over a week left I have one almost done and the new guy started. I should be able to finish them. *Crosses Fingers*
Until next time...
