Showcase Genestealer Cult Mining Colony

 Hi All,

So what did Doc do after completing his Dreadtober so quick? 

Answer decided to tackle an insane amount of terrain.  

So why didn't Doc share WIP as he went?

Answer he was enjoying himself too much!


 Joking aside the video above showcases a new terrain set I have worked on for the last couple of months.  It is from a variety of manufacturers as explained in the video.  There is a mass of conversion work and new techniques in here I am very happy with the result and could write a really long post on the build and paint of this project.  I wont I will let the video and stills below do the talking.  If you want to know anything specific or feel a tutorial would be good please comment below.  Anyway pic fest time (also to note these are the same stills as at the end of the video).

Hope you like this set as much as I do thanks for looking.

Dreadtober Leviathan Dreadnought is Finished Hoorah!

 Hi All,

Well i've cracked on for sure as my Dreadtober pledges are finished.   Although I had a hiccup with the chipping effect.....

All was going well at this stage and I had even had a go at my first free hand!  Then I needed to do the chipping stage.

As you can see it pulled the paint off all the way back to the resin and destroyed my free hand at the same time.  However in most areas it worked really well...

I manged to get the airbrush back out and fix the damaged area quite successfully and then I got motoring and all WIP pictures went out the window as I was in the happy hobby zone loving how it was progressing and then suddenly ta da.......

I think the oil wash really helps give this grimdark look I am going for with this army. I genuinely love this with the exception of the wonky cod piece!!

Anyway that's all folks hope you like it!

Dreadtober week 1 progress

 Hi All,

I've had a good first week at Dreadtober and have finished the Reaver Titan:

Many pictures are on my instagram here:

I am really pleased how its turned out with the pre shade working very well on the armour and managing to pull off the stripes with a chipping effect as well.  The base suits and I must admit I like the versatile terrain names it really suits AT models.

I have also progressed my second project the Leviathan Dreadnought its current status is:

You might wander why a space wolf dreadnought is rusty brown well this is the base coat which has been varnish sealed as this will be what you see when the top coats are chipped back to reveal damage and rusting.  Again solid start and looking forward to getting more done.

Keep going folks we need something positive to focus on in these crazy times.

Doc's Dreadtober Entries, Attempts

 Hey all,

Doc is back and I have decided to take part in this years DREADTOBER, que Dave's wonderful banner:

Well like everyone I have had a shit year in 2020 with being diagnosed with a pituitary brain tumour and recently finding out I have a underactive thyroid to boot alongside the covid shit show it aint great.  Much of the time I don't feel that great but despite this I have two targets for this Dreadtober.  

Firstly finish this Reaver Titan which I started literally ages ago.  Current Progress is:

Secondly a Space Wolf Leviathan Dreadnought which has just been built:

Time to get cracking in the meantime if you wanna get involved head on over to and remember to use the #dreadtober when posting on instagram and social media.

Cheers and BOOOO its nearly halloween.
