Dreadtober – Week 3 update

Written by  

My dread has now been base painted for week 3 of the Dreadtober challenge.

As week 3 of the Dreadtober challenge comes to an end, my base painted dreadnought stands before me.  I was able to get him primed, followed by a slathering of basic colors to match the iconic Trap Jaw character from Masters of the Universe.

I then opted for a thick wash consisting of a mixture of  paynes gray paint, glazing medium, and water.  The wash was applied on everything but the armor plating, and it gives the dread a nice, comic book-style feel, which I think really adheres to the original theme of Masters of the Universe.

The armor was primed in paynes gray, and then washed with black paint, followed by some edging with a mix or light gray and paynes gray.

I still have a lot of clean up to perform, as the blue shade needs to be subdued in some areas.  As such, I suspect that I will be edging a good chunk of the model.  I also want to give the green belt more of a weathered, leathery feel, and I suspect that this will take some tweaking to get it to match my mind’s eye.

Regardless, it is at least progress.

  1. Good job on moving forward with it. Really is matching colour wise so far.

    Thanks! The detail work will make or break this model, IMHO.

    Looking good! It’s a nice mashup between the two nerdoms 🙂
