Pre-Heresy Death Guard Contemptor Dreadnaught HOBBY

By Mihalis Skalkos | December 30th, 2016 | Categories: Army of One, Death Guard, Home of Cadaver, Warhammer 40k
Hello everyone! Cadaver here from Home Of Cadaver. I am really happy to announce that I have just finished this years Dreadtober Challenge from The Broken Paintbrush.

After a month of (not so) hard work, I managed to finish a model that I had sitting in my closet for the past 4 years (at least). The motivation and inspiration that everyone gave me with their wonderful participation was really outstanding and I can’t wait to see everyone’s finished models.

Without further ado then, here is my finished addition to my ever-growing Death Guard army.

The model has been made using a similar palette with the rest of my army, trying to keep a uniform theme. I am glad I achieved that, bearing in mind that the previous model I tried painting for this army was aeons ago, I am glad I can still remember the colors I used.

That said, I tried using some new techniques, mainly with the airbrush. The model was sprayed various bone and white tones to create the main shadows and highlights.It was then heavily weathered using a variety of brown and black inks and glazes to match the rugged and venerable look that I love creating on my Death Guard models, some WIPs of that stage you can see on my previous posts.

The model was finished painting the wonderful resin base from Models and Minis in metallic tones.
I could have added more details on colors and techniques used but I am short on time right now, if there are any questions I would be really happy to answer them in the comments and of course I would be more than happy to hear what you think!

Finally, don’t forget to leave me a vote on CoolMiniOrNot if you have the time! 🙂

Till next time and project, take care!
