Because I need to get my Deathwatch Dread up and running, I've decided to keep motivated by participating in the Dreadtober event over at Broken Paintbrush. In case you don't know (and I didn't, so I missed last year) it's a non-competition event whereby you set goals and work on a Dreadnought-sized (all the way up to Knight!) model, with weekly goals and an exhibition at the end.
Brother Nameless will be a pseudo-Leviathan type Dread, owing to some Votoms parts (well, mainly legs) in my bits box and a desire to not just have a black stompy box. The theme of the Deathwatch seems to be "Every one a character", so I'm determined to make no exception for their biggest member. The end result will probably still be smaller than a Contemptor, but taller and hopefully brawnier than the standard stompy box. While I'd like magnetized arms, Contemptor-sized ones with elbows might visibly sag.
I'm a week behind (and all the arm bits with elbows are in other countries, according to eBay) but let's get cracking anyway.
