From time to time I’ll reach into the hobby vault to feature models painted before I started this blog.
This Dreadnought is from the Assault on Black Reach set, the fifth edition starter box for Warhammer 40,000. It was among the first 40k models bought after my return to the hobby, though it one of the first to be painted.
It did represent one of my earlier forays into magnetizing, with both arms magnetized so I could put on Forgeworld autocannon arms or the multimelta/heavy flamer that came in the kit. The starter box had simpler models, so didn’t feature the fuller weapons set of the standalone dreadnought.
The basing is super simple, just a single green flock. I suspect I was in a rush for an event, or maybe just a game day, and never got back to it.
