Chaos Dread' Boneyard:

Well the last two of the Dreadnought squad has been cleaned, quite exhausting as the painting was thickly brush applied oil based gloss enamel that completely obscured the detail. I soaked everything in 'Simple Green for two weeks and wire brushed off as most I could then I boiled the remainder until softened and scrapped off the residue. The result came out pretty clean.

We see the result here with the four previously primed and base-coated flat black cadre looking on.

Once all are is a similar state I can commence the painting proper.

This was an arduous task for a bunch of worthless metal..........

That's a lot of old fricken chaos dreads!

My offer still stands, let me know if you need extra arms.

Thanks, I may take you up on it because there are a lot of SM arms mixed with the Chaos and I was thinking of scratch build modifying them to look more Chaos'y. I'll PM you later and we'll work out the details......

The Joy of Sex:

Sexy airbrushing that is; in the few short months that I've been building I'd forgotten how much fun it is to spray paint (with an airbrush of course) primer and basic black aerosol spray doesn't count.

Well I fired up the old airbrush; it was completely clogged (someone forgot to clean it last Summer) so a quick cleaning and back in business.

All I know about painting I learned from watch 'Buypainted's videos on youtube If there is a better painter I haven't found him.

Anyway first a highlighting coat on the flat surfaces leaving a rim of black next to the raised metal areas...........

I'm using 'Vallejo ModelAir German Grey 71.052' for the highlighting, it's almost black so it's hard to see in the images but the flash picks it out better than natural light. You don't want it perfect because each Dread will be subtly unique but they all will have the same basic colouring so they look like a squad.

Parsimony Thy Name Is Blackadder

Or vise-versa; frugality is my motto and considering how much these thimbles full of paint cost this information should be worth it's weight in gold.

I've heard many extollations of the virtues of airbrushing but this hasn't been mentioned; to my knowledge anyway.

I just painted all the grey highlights including a full tank worth of Baneblade bogies with 4 drops of paint

and the all the green parts of the entire Chaos Dread squad with 7 drops of 'Vallejo Model Air Lt Grey Green 71.044' paint.

You can't get more economical than that.

Of course I did thin the paint 50/50 with rubbing alcohol (Isopropyl) but that stuff is cheap.

So who can afford not to airbrush?

Thanks,

A Case of Identity:

I have quite a few Chaos metal figures in sorry state of repair and I was wondering if anyone can I identify them for me so I can put the proper weapons to the figures?

This is just a starter line up.

I know the second figure from the left is a Chaos Lord Abaddon The Despoiler
and I have the right arm claw for him and I'll have to scrounge the sword.

I'm not concerned about the two plastic figures I don't even think they are Chaos but the two metal figures at both ends seem worthwhile repairing and painting.

If you can identify any of them call them left to right 1,2,3,4 or 5

Thx,

Whoa that was fast, thank you very much; I'm amazed at your perspicacity, the image wasn't that good; I hope to have better pictures later on.

This has already paid off handsomely I believe I have a right arm for 'The betrayer.
