Painting the inside of Dreadnoughts is a new low for me. There's definitely not enough gas sacs and far too many straight lines (I'll be edge-highlighting sooooo many straight lines next week. Sweet Mother of Terra!!)
I was a bit stupid with the claw marks on the carapace. I should have deftly cut minimal grooves to subtly hint at the initial, bone crunching engagement of these two monsters rather than mincing around, stabbing at it with a scalpel. Oh well, as the blessed Bob Ross once told us, "We don't make mistakes, we just have happy accidents."
The inside is still not finished. The severed pipes are magnetised because.. magnets but I've only base coated them and fiddled around with it until the patriarch looks like he's playing with hair or something. I'm also thinking of putting a huge stab wound in the sarcophagus, spurting a hot mess of Nurgle's Rot down the faceplate and pooling in the bottom armour carapace.
I'm getting the jitters sitting here for hours on end, painting what looks like the inside of an electric plug. What the hell am I doing? I might have to have some serious private time with my Xbox when this is done.
Well anyway, the Redemptor needs a lot more work but I actually based it before painting the model. How bizarre. I've been flicking through the photos in quick succession to try and make a sort of 'flip-book' movie.
It didn't work very well and I probably needed to take several thousand more pictures. Its quite fun to play with the 'Glacis' though. God, this is going to take an age to finish.
