I've spent a fair bit of time on the Dread, and have been taking the usual reference pics as I go, and this is the assembled status so far. The "Dawn of War" look for dreads is redder than I'm using, with the cream colour reserved for the engine bay, but I like the idea that Dreads try to mimic the Marine scheme a bit more closely (in deference to their "walking marine corpse" driver so I've gone for a variant that lets me have a large cream shoulder. I think it counterpoints the large Black-painted faceplates reasonably well. Pictures below the cut.
|These pics have washed out the red a little here, its more vibrant|
in real life. Most the detailing is unfinished too, but this gives a good
impression of where the main colour blocks are going.
|The legs aren't as complete as the top, and the plates there need|
the black borders, which will clean them up immensely.
|THE MOULD LINE! THE HORRIBLE MOULD LINE. Bugger.|
