I have almost completed the base for my dreadnought, only a few minor detailing still left.
The general idea of the base was to create a crater that had a deeper depth then the rest of the base. This was done by cutting out a circular piece of 5mm plastic card, carving out the crater. I then used green stuff to shape the edges of the crater. Normal sand was then glued to soil parts of the base to give it more texture.
Some random shapes plastic cards was glued onto the outer slopes of the crater to give a feeling of destruction.
The metal beam still needs some work to fit in with the rest of the base better. The dirt was painted with charadon granite then highlighted with graveyard earth and kommando khaki.
The dreadnought have gotten all the blue armour painted and I have start to add the details. On the parchment on the left leg I have written “ULTRA” short for ultramarines and on the centre piece I carefully wrote his name “PRIMUS” which is a dreadnought from the 2nd company.
When all the details and metal are complete I will add a layer of wear and tear similar to the techniques used on the drop pod.
I estimate that I will have this model finnished in a week or two.
