Let's take a look!
Relic Contemptor Dreadnought
Mortis Dreadnought Leg Mural
|Tuesday night I got the bug to update the Mortis Dreadnought with a leg mural.|
I had previously wanted to do this while I was painting him earlier, but didn't have the time. Last night I decided to knock it out and get it done.
This mural is based on a piece of art in the Deathwatch codex. It features an Ultramarine facing off against a Tyranid Warrior. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to put it on a dreadnought, I just needed the proper space.
Originally I had planned to span it across both shinguards. But then decided that it would look strange like that and opted to do only the left leg instead.
The result turned out to be really good, and I was sad to weather it up. But, it needed to be done in order to fit in with the rest of it.
Doing these shrunken versions of official art is super fun and it is a major challenge. There's a couple more pieces in the codex I'd like to copy. But we'll see what happens, and if I can pull them off.
But, that's it for now! The Dreadnoughts are fully finished and Adepticon ready. Barbossa is nearing the finish line too. Once he's done, I'll be knocking out the display board for the Dreads. Then its on to new projects!
Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the Let's Paint series and other videos.
