Grey Knight Dreadnought

The last model I planned to work on for the foreseeable future for my Grey Knights was a venerable dreadnought. I used the furioso dreadnought kit as a base for the model, with the librarian dread sarcophagus, but I replaced the death mask with a Grey Knight helmet. I then added some purity seals and the reliquary piece, a book and sword bit and the heraldry shield bit from the dread knight kit.

I kept to the same painting schemes for the dreadnought as I did for the other Grey Knights. Using a black primer base, I then gave it a base coat of Boltgun, a wash of Asurmen Blue and a final coat of Chainmail. I then did base coats of P3 Kommando Khaki and Brazen Brass, with a wash of Devlan Mud, and then a top coat of P3 Menoth Base Coat and the gold was finished with a coat of Shining Gold and an extreme highlight of Burnished Gold. The red was done with layers of P3 Sanguine Base, Sanguine Highlight, Khador Base and Khador Highlight.

To continue the Arthurian theme, the dreadnought is named Uther. I kept the heraldry simple, with just a white field and a diagonal red bar across it. I then added faux writing with a micron pen to finish the model.
