Scratch sculpted Grey Knight Dreadnought

This was the very first dreadnought I ever painted, which is a bit ironic.  I think I painted 2-3 more scratch built dreadnoughts before I ever painted a 'regular' plastic or resin dreadnought.

This was built primarily from sculpey, but there was some brass rod as well.  The subsequent scratch builds were done a bit differently, where the parts were sculpted separately, and then assembled after baking.  On the other hand, this particular dreadnought was built from the 'ground up'.

Some images:

  3. Always a pleasure! Here in the so called northern darkness when there's plenty of time to splat some paint, especially in winter time, your blog is absolutely brilliant source of inspiration.

    1. Most kind! My only wish is that there were more hours in the day so that I could get more painting done! So many projects...

  4. And to me the most important aspect of your painting style is the fact that you paint nearly all your minis traditionally with brushes and those cool OSL- effects without an airbrush. With so many minis for you to paint, that must be quite a hard labour! But it's really encouraging too to see the results. Keep on happy painting and share those pictures!

    1. Hehehe.. one of my favorite things is the matter of fact question "So what airbrush do you use?"... and I get to reply, "No airbrush, just hairy sticks!" ;-)
