Part One.......Hi Guys Its been a while since I painted or modelled anything Scythes related so I thought I'd come back with a little diorama type project that will incorporate a small squad of Assault Marines and a Dreadnought, the Dreadnought being the focal point of the project.
While modelling this Dreadnought I was thinking of making it Venerable for normal 40k play but also for fun as a Character making up my own rules for it, more on that later.
Also I carefully cut off the three raised rectangle shapes on the right panel and covered the sights at the top of that panel with green stuff ready for more squares to be added.
It was quite fiddly to model with four pinning joints and as a result a tad fragile so it wont be a permanent feature on the model itself just for display purpose, I rather like it though.
Then using green stuff I moulded it around these pieces thinking when the sand is added it will look like its blown up against them and will add more of a natural look to the base.
Before spraying it helps to put tiny pieces of blu tac in the Dreadnoughts feet, this is so when I come to glueing the model together I'll have plastic to plastic contact and as a result it will be a stronger bond.
