That's Prime.

Had a busy night at work so all I really got done was some priming.

Both of these guys and all the guns got a coat of Halfords Primer.
I also won another Mk 1 chaos chuck

With some modifications, I'm planning on using this as a Terminator / Gravis captain in the Hounds, I'm sure I have a Terminator sword arm some where.

And waiting to hear if this guy has shipped from the States yet.
All 4 of these Dreads are planned to be painted next month, along with a second RedemptorDreadnought.
I can also run a second Dreadnought Family Tree thread and another Dread Filled Month.
5 Dreads in one month? Going to need paint, white paint.

When greenskins gather for war, their Shamans build mighty idols of Gorkamorka. Some are formed from the rubble of the Orruks’ recent conquests, mortared with noxious Squiggoth dung. Others are built using strange stone quarried in the deep places of the realms, or even incorporate volatile shards of realmstone or shadeglass within their lumpen forms. Daubed with crude sigils, lit by roaring bonfires, the idols sit silent and menacing as the Shamans dance around them and the tribes bellow their war chants. The idols soak up ever more Waaagh! energy until at last the innate magicks of the greenskins react spontaneously with those of the realms themselves.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Rogue Idol. An enormous amalgamation of chunks of rock and densely packed soil, it’s covered in details – from the immense bunched fists to the eerily lifelike, hollow eyes (which can be covered with the optional mask), it’ll prove your devotion to the Waaagh! in fine style. The various surface of the model are covered in glyphs and carven symbols declaring praise to Gorkamorka, and the Idol provides some fantastic opportunity for the advanced modeller to go wild – add your own moss and extra rocks!

The Rogue Idol comes as 8 components, and is supplied with a 170x105mm oval base.

The Big Guy

I got some paint on the big guy tonight as well as chopping up another plastic Contemptor arm and giving him lots of options, Vulkite, Kheres assault cannon and multi melta.

I was painting the big guy in 2 main parts and the shoulders

I got the nuln oil wash it and got one lot of dry brushing done on the shoulders, will get a second coat on tonight.
Before I do the white on the main body.

Amendments To The Monthly Vow

The plan is now changed.

So I slept more than I had intended to yesterday, so was awake all night, I magnets the shoulders of the Contemptor and the guns, using the Storm Lord Kheres assault cannon arm as a base, so all future Contemptor weapons can be interchangeable

And I've also gone and bought a metal Caseterferrum Venerable Dreadnought and the Deathwatch dread ( bad Proxy), the metal Venerable is coming from America so that, and the other dread & the plastic Contemptor are now bumped to next month, the Redemptor Dreadnought will be done this month and I'm still buying the Chaplian this month, the Hellblaster box is now bumped to September - October.

Big Fella

Finally got the assembly finished of the Redemptor Dreadnought, sized next to a plastic Contemptor that also has the onslaught heavy gatling mounted, that was just to see how it looked but I'm now thinking about it for the Storm Lord.

From Facebook During The Open Day

From adaptus astartes page, via Lords Of War

- Talked to the fw designers about titanicus. Its been pushed back for necromunda
- Paladin knights are the smallest models for it at the size of a catti terminator
- Reavers are contemptor size ish
- The warlords is between the redemptor and knight size
- And the warlord is going to be just shy of the knight
- The emp will ether be in scale with the rest at the size of a lancer or be a more manageable size tbd
- But all will now be in plastic because its been delayed
- And all of them are fully pose able but with tabs like the redemptor has
- Also the necromunda bases are Designed to fit with the mortis boards and will be their own pack at some point
- And the FW design studio is re working all aircraft atm bar the transporter
- Was talking to the tau designer about thw orca and hes started to design it and is going for a thunderbird 2 stlye. With different pods for troops tanks and suits

Coming Soon

I know nothing about this, I'm guessing it's a promotional poster from the Open Day at Warhammer World.

Redemptor Dreadnought

First dread post in a while, and a vow broken.

This Dread is a pleasure to build, I was worried it would be a confusing bugger to build but I'm glad to report that it's a great kit. The guns on the hands are a good fit, I chose not to fit the pipe adapter into the fist so I can swop between the heavy flamer and onslaught gatling cannon.

The body is nice and those flat plates offer the potential for some nice conversion work, or free hand if you feel your painting is up to that.

The legs offer lots of posing potential.

And both BFG 's are fully interchangeable, but not sure if magnets will be needed.
I ran out of glue on the assembly last night, so had to leave Fat Albert unfinished, I'm also planning a second one for the Lion's Blades, and someone was asking if it could be made into a Furioso Dreadnought, which is could be, but you'd need to kits, and a I'm sure a Mortis pattern of thus would be a brown pants moment.

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

With the plan being somewhat vague this month I can't actually decide if I've done it or failed.

I started off the month with the brothers Squishy and the Interceptors of Squad 2.

I then polished off the second set from the Dark Imperium box set

At which point the Codex and other stuff came out, and I had to wait for a week for stuff to arrive.

I used the 2 of the 3 Intercessors as alternative Sgts for the Hounds and the 3rd as a paint test for any future Lion's Blades Primaris Astartes I do.
And lastly there's the . . . gorram Primaris Librarian

Those pipes around the arms will break off at some point, and the legs are a fun fit but it does look good.

So on to next month, what's the plan? Well I need the fat Albert dreadnought done for the end of September and I'm thinking of buying the Chaplian and a box of Hellblasters , half for The Lion's Blades and the others for the Hounds, could do with some more paint, which is a trip to either Preston or Manchester and hopefully with my 2 days off next week I can pick up a plastic Contemptor off a mate, watch Atomic Blonde and anything else I need to get done.

That Required A Bit More Effort Than I Expected To Put In

I started to assemble the Primaris Librarian last night, I'm not to sure if I got a leg wrong or not but the leg/groin/robe piece was leaving massive gaps in the robe seams to the rest of the body. It took a large amount of filing on the legs and inside of the robes to get it to fit together, and it doesn't look great now it's glued in place.

I'm painting this for the Hounds but he was a former Mentors Chapter Librarian.

Not a big fan of the easy build Reavors, there's a few body gaps on them.

Though they do look good when built.

I've built these 2 as alternative Sgts for a Reavor squad and an Intercessor Squad, these 2 are former Nemesis Chapter Sgts.

This one is a former Mentors Chapter Sgt.
It turned out I've left my cutters at home so can't cut the lugs off the shoulders to glue the arms in place, so will do that tonight , I'm also starting the Librarian tonight as well.
