Hi guys, I just wanted to showcase my Grey Knight Dreadnought and see what everyone thought, get some feedback and advice. I just popped it up on our blog if anyone is interested in knowing a bit more about the build. www.Krakendoomcool.wordpress.com

Working in the same model right now. How did you do the washes underneath the torso? The panels have some great detail.
How will your army stand up to the 1750 Spawn Rush?

I wrote a lot about the build on the blog if your interested really interested in it.  The psychic hood was two panels of plasticard for the outer bit and the inside was greenstuff with a spherical dent in it where I then sculpted green stuff wires into.  The Body is one of the two Grey Knight bodies you can get from Forgeworld, so that's easy enough for you to get hold of.  I cant remember what I did when I painted it, I don't think I'm that great a painter!  I made greenstuff panels for the shoulders but didn't like how bare one of his legs was and as an experiment I just tried to freehand a panel onto the shin and make it look like a panel.  The only washes have... or would have had would have been nuln oil and gryphone sepia... so what ever those are now... Black McDark wash and Agrax Earthshade.  I think what I would have done is just paint it gold, then painted the letters on with black, highlighted the edges of the letters with a lighter gold or maybe even silver... I didn't have a wide range of either.  then tried the washes on.  if you do the paint work then once its dry you can try the washes and if you make a mistake just wipe them off because the surface is flat rather than textured.

 

Sorry my descriptions of the paints are so vague, like I said i'm not a great painter.  I've actually been picking the brains of actually good painters on Twitter to help me get some decent paints and brushes that are other brands too.  Practice may be the most important part but I don't want to hamstring myself by the limitations of my gear.  Like I said, if you want to know more about the build and see some other pics, check out the blog.  www.Krakendoomcool.wordpress.com

 

I am also on Twitter if any of you guys are, now sharing some of my other works in progress and finding inspiration to spur myself on! @Pandorasbitzbox

 

Thanks for you kind words guys

Just checked their website, but only the other type of MKIV GK dreanoughts still appears to be available. So it seems you got a pretty rare Dreadnought chassis there.

Oh crap, really? thats a shame.  check ebay I guess.  even if you cant get a new one, maybe someone would sell and old one and you could strip it.

 

Edit:

 

Ok yeah, I just had a look too.  Nowhere on the website, then I looked for it elsewhere online and one other shop that appeared to be selling them at one point (I guess they bought forgeworld stuff in?) said they discontinued them April 2016, so I don't know if that's when forgeworld stopped producing it. Crazy, I guess I picked the right one.  After a swing around ebay I spotted this...

https://www.ebay.com...MMAAOSwaVRaz6M8

 

so they are around, theres like 5 days left on that if you see this message in time, then I guess its just playing the game there and trying to get one for a decent price.  Hopefully the people selling them don't realise they are out of production or they could just slap "RARE" on it and then do them as Buy Now for twice the price.

 

Good luck anyway, send me a message if you manage to get one!
