|Bleh, too shiny!|
|Sigh...the gold's looking a bit weak, that means painting yet more of it on.|
This dread's got enough gold paint on it to make the Emperor's Children blanch (and this is just the base coat)! As you can see, I've laid down the metallic green and ton of gold trim, as well as a bit of sotek green on some of the hoses.
|My, what a big claw you have...|
The CCW arm arrived earlier than expected and has been brought up to speed as well. My Beloved Wolfy commented that the new arm looks bigger than the rest of the dread! It does look a bit out of proportion, but such is the norm with the Imperium's need to overcompensate. The arm itself is proportionally no different than on any other Space Marine dread produced in the past few decades, just the claw itself seems to be larger.
|Silver and hazard stripes to come!|
I also painted over the Space Wolf colored bits on the base. Despite exterminating a wayward and misguided (though ultimately loyal) Legion, Russ' puppies are nonetheless considered to be loyalists themselves. Thus it makes no sense to have their discarded equipment lying at the base of a Salamander's dreadnought's feet. Instead these will be painted in Iron Warriors colors as I have done previously.
