Of late I've been focussing on my Tyranids, and my second longest played army, the Thousand Sons due to the new codex, however I still have a huge backlog of Space Marines to paint, and fun to have! I've started on an ETB-Redemptor Dread that I managed to get for a good price.

This will be Flesh Eaters, however it has a press moulded half BA icon where the company insignia will go, with the Chapter Icon on the left shoulder. I nicked the waist-tabard banner from themidnightmare's incredible Redemptor conversion. I was tempted to go a bit more crazy with this model, but 1) my view of the Flesh Eaters is a bit more utilitarian/pragmatic as opposed to damned, 2) couldn't be bothered/just want it on the table 3) I like the more plain, unornamented models to I can focus more on the freehand and weathering as opposed to painting millions of gems and gewgaws. That said, I wanted to be able to field both weapons, so I traded some bits for the macro plasma incinerator, which handily came with the elbow connector/cog. I stuck magnets in it, then into the plasma cannon before assembling. Hacking up the connections to get the mags into the heavy onslaught was trickier, and needed a little GS work to keep them in place and to rebuild the elbow joint.

When Blood Angels and World Eaters meet in one mini ;)
Nice catch on the Redemptor and nice embellishments too. Looking forward to seeing it painted. Will you try your hand with contrasts on him or do you choose the traditional path?

Traditional method for this guy - the contrasts don't give me the shade I need - he'll get sprayed meph red, thenlayer of evil sunz scarlet like the rest of the FE's - I *have* been shading using the FT red contrast though, really clings to the recesses, so I'll probably continue with that.

Redemptor Rednought.

Really not sold on the banner at the moment, seeing it primed. I think I was going for a titan/knight leg banner effect, but it looks a little odd on the dread- opinions? Maybe it needs to be moved forwards in front of the groin plate, more like a loin cloth?

 

The red there is Halfords red plastic primer - it actually did a decent job, and is arounf £7 a can, so maybe half that of mephiston red. This was 2-3 thin coats. It has a rough texture when it goes on, so I'd advise a quick once over with actual mephiston red for both colour matching, but also to improve the surface texture of the model.

I'd say it probably needs to go on a banner above his head, like the dreads of yore!

He'll be so tall though 😅 I don't have a case big enough. Also, that banner is comically small when on top - I did try that first 😊

OK then, how about moving it to cover the pelvis section? Sure it might look  a bit like an apron, but then again - tradition ;)
