I'm just plain huge..

 DreadTober is coming to an end and I really wanted to have this guy complete but sadly it's been a super busy month. He's pretty close to being complete but I didn't want to rush him to get him completely done.
 The arms aren't weathered at all and the metals aren't complete.. I haven't done any oils or powders either.. and they take some time to apply properly..
 The claw is mostly done but I need to do highlights on the arm and then bring it down a little bit..
 The cabling will have a little more highlighting and a lot of grease and what not added.
 Sadly nothing was done to the driller arm. I'll be adding rust and grim to the drill as well as some bright edge highlights to show where it just ripped through some stuffs..
 I think he came out looking pretty cool so far..
He is a massive model .. I mean crazy big! .. As I was putting him together I was realizing how massive the model is.. He should be a good add to the RG and I'm looking forward to using him. Sadly I don't getting to use him soon.. I'll be playing a tourny in Philly but it's only 1K points and I can't squeeze in to much.

DreadTober : Getting something done

 It's been a busy October ..  kicked DreadTober off and then headed off to Disney for the family Vacay..  it was a good time but it tired me out..  I haven't had much time to put in at the table but I did get a little work done. I was trying to figure out how I wanted to mark the Dread... I finally went with one chest guard bone and the other black .. going with a Raven symbol and then the XIX.
 The main sections are black blended as well as the bone coloring.. I started to hit all of the steel bits but I haven't finished them yet. But once that's done I can start the main weathering process.
The knee guards got a little work as well. I kept the theme going from the Knight and went with the same style.

I'm hoping to get some solid work done on them this week to hopefully have them wrapped up maybe by the weekend.

Also .. Greg and I will be participating in Killa Kanz (Greg is probably down with the name).. it's a team event in Philly ..  The guys that run the Narrative Event at Nova. The event also raises food for a homeless shelter! If you are close sign up and have fun while helping some people out!

DreadTober - All your base..

 Yesterday I finally got around to working on my DreadTober entry but it wasn't the Dread yet 8) .. I picked up a box of the Sector Mech bases that I wanted to try out and mix up the industrial bases for the RG.
 I took some pictures as the base started to come together. First is just the base steel and brass colors.
 Next I started to add the wire and pipe colors and started on the deep rust.
I added and chipped a red block on the base to give it a little more color and start to grime up the base pretty heavy. The final layer added is the oil grease which has some gloss to keep the wet look. Sadly that makes it a but shiny in the pic..

I clean the dread and start to put some of the sections together .. hopefully I'll have some more work done on it this week but I'm getting ready to take the kids to Disney next week so we are pretty busy.. not to mention trying to keep track of all of the DreadTober stuff!
