Dreadtober 2019 - Night Lords Leviathan Dreadnought - Week 4

So Dreadtober draws to a close and how have I done? Well, truthfully, not as well as I would have liked.

Not bad, but not finished.
Unfortunately, real life seemed determined to get in the way this month. I got sick, which put me out of action for a few days and crucially I lost a weekend of painting progress. I also had to go through the process of buying a new car which proved to be time consuming.

On a happier note, I went up to Warhammer World last week for a day of gaming with some friends. We had a lot of fun, but I could have used that time instead to get some more progress on the Dreadnought. It's all about priorities I suppose.

I'm pleased with the details so far.
Having said all of that, I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along so far. The details are looking decent and with a bit of concerted effort I could probably finish the whole thing off fairly quickly. Hopefully, given another week, I will be able to share the finished article with you all.

I feel sorry for the dead guy hanging off the front.
So, that concludes Dreadtober 2019. My thanks to Joel from Mordian 7th for organising it and for posting all the updates over at the Dreadtober blog.


  1. Going to WHW with friends and having a blast is a better priority than getting some painting done, I think your priority orders were correct :) Looks great regardless of a few finishing touches, and a lot further ahead than if Dreadtober wasn't there to focus your Hobby Butterfly Syndrome, so great job mate!

    1. Cheers Siph! I certainly thought it was more important to go to WHW. :) Dreadtober certainly gave me the inspiration to crack on with this one and it will be finished soon.

  2. I agree, I would have gone to WHW as well! And other than the base, it looks 'finished' in my book, nicely done!

    1. Thanks man! There's a few bits of detail missing and some odd highlights but other than that it's nearly there.

  3. Totally good on the priorities, no worries. The dread is coming along just fine!
