Venerable Dread Ranulf is getting closer to completion

 I made some changes to the colour scheme of the armored chest piece to bring it more in line with the rest of the paint. I wanted to put less yellow than the previous Contemptor just to give the model a different feel.

I am still debating about what to do with the currently black surface of the Blizzard Shield. Right now the idea that is winning is to put a large red arrow pointing up with the wolf icon at its apex. Admittedly this idea may be inspired by the incessant re-watching of the movie "300: Rise of an Empire" that I have done while painting the dreads. And I could watch it again. It's not really a great movie, I just find it entertaining for some reason.I think a bright band of red across the shield would make it look a lot more interesting. And if not then black easily covers up red.

Anyway as you can see I have made some progress on the axe blade and the runes on the weapon and shield. Once the main colours are down I will attempt an OSL effect around the runes.

I did one coat of spray fix and managed to over spray some parts of the head of the model but repaired that so the frosted parts are no longer apparent.


  1. Hi, I love this dread. Do you sell it or do you make another for commission? (I need 2 models)

  2. I do not really do commissions. I would not even know what to charge for it. The conversion is a bit pricey just for the parts as it uses a Venerable Contemptor and the axe and shield form the Space Wolves Dreadnought kit. The rest are icons (and the head) that I cast in resin
