Plugging Away

 Reminded once again what it is I don't like about this Dreadnought, it miles of trim...

So, curse someone's sudden, but inevitable, betrayal, I'm now not getting my weekend off, but I did ask for Christmas off in return which thanks to the incoming crisis in social care when the unvaccinated are let go in November I still might not get anyway.

Put the time in on the trim on this guy, the embossed areas all started with a base coat of Iron Warriors metallic, I gave some of the stars, the lozenge around the lupus rampant on the hull and the jem on the axe a retributor gold base, then did some shopping while that dried. I then gave the wolf head and Lupus rampant a highlight of leadbleacher and the gold bits a reikland flesh wash, I then washed up, and asked my youngest if she wanted to cook tea.

As you can see I gave the wolf head, lupus rampant and gold bits an edge highlight with stormhost silver
The Worm was given a wash of seriphim sepia and a screaming skull highlight. The image of Björn got the same treatment as the Wolves, the hair and claw got the gold treatment. The cybernetic eye hot a coat of iron warrior. The last thing I did before bed was give the eye on the chest a base of screaming skull as well as big the fur out to add to this, will try the big shield on the other shoulder as well as seeing if the other Björn kit has those fur parts and seeing how they look on the other shoulder. I also need to see if I can fit those 3 parts together in a way that means I can fit them on the axe arm and missile arm as well.
The only thing I'm doing before I go to work on what should have been my first weekend off in 12 weeks is to give the eye in the chest a Sepia wash.

So I Bought Another Dreadnought For This


When I got home from work today the latest Björn the Fell Handed kit was waiting for me, I snipped out the claws I needed and mocked it up to see how this looks with the correct claws.

I was planning to use the axe and fist as it's main weapons, seeing how this looks now I think I'll keep it with both hands and claws.

Monthly Vow 12th Of September To The 12th Of October

 Hectic month at work, new season on Destiny 2, I've not even had the chance to watch Shan Chi and The Ten Rings yet, but that's the plan for tonight.

Plan for this month, finish the latest Björn dread, potentially buy the Argal Tal and have a crack at the photoshopped conversion I've seen of a Wolfen. 

I really want/need to get the heavy Intercessors done now I have 10 of them. 

Possibly start one of the other Björn dreads as well. 

Review Time.


Packing these up I noticed something I hadn't realised I had done. 

I'd dropped this and broke the sword, cross and head, so while fixing the head and cross back on I took the opportunity to sort the sword out as well. 

Spent a few hours working on this alternative assault cannon. 

The Helbrute and the Hounds were primed, as well as the heavy Intercessors, the Intercessors also got a spray of black.

I then started on the Björn box Helbrute, was looking at the heads. My original plan was the wolf skull, but after trying the Wolfen head at a mates suggestion, decided to go with that. I then went forward with the chaos chest plate.

Again fluid plans on the weapons mean I started by working on turning the hammer into an axe, and have pulled it off okay I think, before I had a look at using twin claws. I have ended up buying a second Björn for the claws so it can have a pair of claws on a pair of hands. 

There is also a plan to paint all the weapons, I'm not sure if I want to try and add a frost cannon to it yet.

I do like how this looks. 

Painting this following the Primaris Intercessors guide on the citadel app. 

The plan is to use the Iron Warriors metallic on all that trim... 

This morning I added some blood to the blood god onto the veins and tubes on this. Still bits to do.

The Last Of Us Show From HBO

 I found these on twitter from a fan run account that is following the production, judging by the onset photo, very closely.

Looking at the above images that's around the food line and security check point that gets bombed by the Fireflies when you get the sprinting primer in the introduction.

I am following the account and if there is any more pics like this I will be sharing them here.

Started Painting

 Base coat done on this.

Started with an ushabati bone base coat on a lot of the dread.

Then gave the fleshy parts with the contrast paint.

Before giving the metal plates a coat of The Fang blue grey, then gave it an agrax earthshade wash, once dry I gave it a highlight of The Fang before I went to bed.

This morning I gave the the legs and a couple of the arms a coat of Russ Grey but was planning tea for tomorrow and getting one of my kids to make some pastry for a pie and didn't get a photo.

Overloading Myself

 Last night I was looking at this guy and ebay, looking for another set of Björn claws to use on this. I ended up raiding the coin jar to cover the cost of buying another Björn The Fell Handed kit to get the claws...

But the Freddy version will walk.

Really Rough

 Got pretty much everything built today weapon wise on the sprues for this one.

Yeah I'm leaving it alone till morning. I did add another couple of cocktail sticks to make sure the head stays how I want it.

Rather looking forward to painting this one now.
