Chaos Dreadnought and Changer of Ways WIP

 Continuing the speed-painting-a-thon, I decided to paint up a Chaos dreadnought that I nicked off ebay for a steal. If the price had not been so good I might not have bothered, given how much I dislike metal models. In another transaction I managed to pick up some dreadnought weapons as well. One of the things I like about new models is that edges are crisp, and there is little difficulty in figuring out where to paint. The older models require a measure of looseness in painting style that works great for speed painting, but makes it difficult of me to paint clean models. Despite this, I really enjoyed dousing this old guy in paint. I think he looks great with the army.

Given my inability to actually finish a model, while painting the dread, I decided to paint up a changer of ways greater daemon as well. The palette is completely different, and will fit with the all daemon army that I've decided to build to complement the Chaos Marines. I suppose I could magnetize the daemons to their bases, and have square or round bases depending on game system, however I am not sure I want to slow down my painting with all that drilling. My wife loves the Daemon, so I must have done something right!


  1. These look great. Keep up the good work. What is your petina mix? Its really blue, not that that's a bad thing.

  2. I am using hawk turquoise. What would you recommend I try? I am open to any and all suggestions! :)

  3. Love the lord of change - great color choices! For the verdigris perhaps a mix of hawk turquoise and jade green? Generally copper/bronze oxidizes into more of a green hue than blue. Of course, on some alien world whose atmosphere is comprised of different elements, who's to say? Keep up the great work!
