Dreadtober - failed!

So the month is almost over and I've not managed to complete my dreadnought, and now I'm about to go mobile for work, so until I know my new schedule, no painting for me. I could give a number of reasons why I've not completed this, including helping my girlfriend move house, helping dad deal with holiday home flooding issues, visiting my mum who's unwell, getting ready for my new job, and fighting with my failed 3d printer, but none of these have stopped me having any painting time. What did really do it was the return of my carpal tunnel issues. I'd hoped after the operation, I'd get more than 18 months of so respite, but seems not. While this doesn't stop me painting, it just killed my mojo as I knew I'd be in pain and discomfort afterwards, so I've done very little all month - all of the items on the blog roll were done at the end of Sept/early Oct, and rip fed out. This is where I did get to with my IW dreadnought though.

Something I have wanted to obtain for a long time, a Soviet Tu-28P Fiddler long range fighter. I'll be taking this up to our annual Cold War Commanders game, although I doubt it will see use.

Running Warhound

Another Lucius Warhound, running this time. Still needs weapons printing.

Warlord, more parts printed

I think this is everything to date, except a locating pin, and gear end which were in another room...still loads to do.

Mini Reaver

Just to complement my 28mm Lucius Reaver, I've managed to reduce it to AT scale and reproduce it. I'm adding another set of weapons, and alternate top weapon and then planning to run it at my local club, should be good!

Radar Tower

This is a bit of 28mm scenery that came about as a result of one of my 28mm Marauders failing to print. It's actually a salvaged piece of fuselage with a door and radar found on Thingiverse, and a section of styrene sheet. Just need to cut an mdf base, paint and maybe add greebles to the roof.

Marauder bomber, Scenery

Originally I intended to use this as a token for some airstrike stuff in AT (narrative event stuff) but since GW has given us some beautiful AI models, I'll go with those instead. I expect crossover rules at some point now too. Anyway, this will now be attached to one of my landing pads as a landed bomber - cover for knights at least. As usually, it's printed from an STL found on Thinigverse.

Void Dragon Phoenix - PIP

Managed to get one of these old chestnuts, and given we have customisable craftworld rules coming, I fancied returning to doing a scheme I dropped for Alaitoc (since it's easier and the rules in 8th are good). Therefore, it's heading into my Mai-Bai scheme of white and red which seems more appropriate anyway since this version is supposed to be a corsairs vehicle, and my force uses a lot of older guardians with lasguns which are closer to the old Corsair lasblasters.If only Corsairs still had an HQ choice, I'd be running them.

Reaver Titan build - WIP

Still working on my Lucius Reaver build, legs are now silver and ready for brush painting work, armour has just been push fitted for this photo. Arms and top weapon are magnetised too. I've also decided on a name for this beast for when it gets its Tempestor paint scheme, "Clamans ad Vindictam".

For a Friend

Not my usual stuff, but printed these as a commission for a friend. Bolt action Fiat 626 trucks and AS37 scout cars. I have some more to do for him, but the Ender 5 has taken a nose dive and I've awaiting spares now - it's either the PSU or control board, so I've had to order both to find out which.

Dreadtober Entry

The good news should be that I played my first game of Titanicus today - very cool, and that I'm printing a Lucius Reaver in 8mm scale...but no, instead I'm committing to Dreadtober.

I'm planning to get the chappie done for month end.
