Dreadtober progress

 Progress on the Dreadtober Project!



The Throne of Judgement is being worked up from a black base... big surprise yo!

I got to thinking about being representative of my style of painting... and realized I hadn't really thought of that in a while.  I think, in the main, I'm a texture and process painter with a lot of layers of build up.. sometimes pretty heavy... and thence the texture... 
Typically starting with black and brushing everything with a dark grey so I could make out the details.








 After the grey the areas that would end up weathered or red got a brush up of scrofulous brown... love that color!






The model got a weathering pass of Rustungs Farbe... a bright white metal color.. and then all the scrofulous and metal brushed areas got a Secret Weapon Flesh Wash.






Bases got the pale brown over black, brushed over with tan earth and washed with Army Painter Strong Tone ink then re-brushed with Tan Earth... wood got the standard wood treatment. 






 Then on to scrolls bones and robes... for some reason these guys persist in viewing themselves as "The Good Guys" in spite of all evidence to the contrary.... so I thought yar!  white rube for the judgy Priest!... I'll trim it in red... vanity is a thing even for judgy priest types!

Anyway Jack Bone, Menoth White, Menoth White Highlight.



 Going forward... will be reds and then gold trim and actual black areas.

I've done this a bit inside out... where some of the raised detail was done before the recessed detail... almost always a recipe for failure but in this case a lot of sub color texture was done so Ithink it'll work out.... well see soon enough!

  1. I had no idea there were so many components for this kit. I don't think I've ever seen one in person! Loving your choice of color so far!

    Doing outside in isn't wrong. If it works for you, it works!

    1. Yar! It's a great old kit with ye olde ton of parts! Come to think of it... I'm not sure I've ever seen one in person either! It'll make a great interest point in the Heresy Suppression Unit!
