Minotaurs - Dreadnought - Badab War
Next unit to be inducted into my Minotaurs army is the mighty Dreadnought. I cleaned this guy up with Dettol as he was painted up in my Aurelius Legion brass and black colour scheme. After cleaning I primed him with black primer and gave him a thinned down coat of black paint. Next was a coat of Tin Bitz followed by Brazen Brass and a Thraka Green wash, next up a dry brush of Brazen Brass again followed by a wash of my own mix of Verdigris wash. Another drybrush of Brazen Brass to finish off the armour. I then painted the red parts of the armour with a base of Scab Red followed by a layer of Red Gore. The details like scroll work etc was given a Scorched Brown base coat. ( picture above )
Here I have base coated the mechanical parts with Boltgun Metal as well as some details that are metal but not armour.
The one thing I did decide to do was paint the feet and Claw / Fist Red, I think it gives the Dread a bit more of a nasty look. What do you guys think yes / no?
More to follow.
