Forgemas 2014 - Pre Heresy Death Guard Mortis Pattern Contemptor Dreadnought Showcase

Hi All and Happy New Year,

My forgemas entry was completed a couple of weeks ago but with family time and other commitments I have not got round to putting it up here.  I feel this model is my first model where all of the techniques for weathering I've been learning in the last few months have been put to use on one model.  I use sponge weathering first attempted on my Imperial Knight. Weathering powders both wet and dry.  I also used weathering liquids for the first time to apply a rust affect to rivets.  The idea with the weathering liquid is to show where the water would run and create a rust streak.   I'm really happy with the finish and glad the forgemas event came along to get this model finally finished!

Anyway on to the pictures:

As always comments and constructive criticism is most welcome.  This model has added a further 10pts to my painting points total (shown on the right hand side of the blog)

I have lots of projects up and running so will be looking at a high number of posts from me in the coming weeks.

Thats all Folks

Doc out


  1. Nice job dude! Good to see it finished. The weathering has worked really well.

  2. Thanks Tweedy, how goes the rebooted hornet?

  3. The disaster with the water effects really knocked my enthusiasm for a while, but I've rebuilt the base now and I'm in the process of repainting it. So shouldn't be too long now.
