Hi guys,

Decided to paint a mini "just for fun" this weekend outside of HPC. "Scales" recently got back from London (did you hear he went to warhammer world??) and was nice enough to carry back a contemptor dreadnought for me.

I always liked it, but after building it I feel forgeworld just nocked it out of the park with this one and I will feel a bit sad building regular dreadnoughts in the future!

I chose to paint it up as Raptors, because I fell in love with their background and colour scheme from IA:3. I painted this guy up to represent Captain Kaedes of the raptors 6th company who was killed on Taros by the Tau and interred inside a dreadnought shortly after.

I will keep this thread going as I plan to work on bits and pieces alongside my HPC projects this summer.

I used weathering powders for the first time and really liked some of the effects that they can create, as well as using Valejo Surface Primer and Wash (Fantastic stuff!) for the airbrush to do the green. The green is done straight over the bare resin and then washed, so it would be possible to knock these guys out very quickly...

He looks really good man, makes me want one of my own. I really like the fluff tie in as well it makes it cool and characterful.

Very cool. I really like how the weathering and tank usage came out, particularly the rust on the bench and paint peeling off the inside of the door. For some reason it almost looks like the rust spot to the right of the bench looks like it's also bashed in a little bit.

Thanks mate. There are actually some dimples inside due to imperfections in the cast. The inside was fun to paint though would have been easier before I glued the sides on lol... Next time!

Thanks mate, I am addicted to painting that green lol. I am back on to the dark eldar wagon again now, once my kabalites are done I think I will pick up a tactical squad to go in the rhino!

Dark eldar will be featuring in our campaign this summer, one of the warzones in which will be poor old Folaris!
