Its finally done. After more than a year on and off converting it, and couple of months just looking at it unsure of what to do... it actually took me only two weeks to paint him. It was a painting marathon that left me sleep-deprived and exhausted. For someone who is notoriously slow painter I'll say that motivation does wonders
With this one I had to improvise a lot and learn new techniques along the way (bronze, osl, lenses) ...and while I'm mostly pleased with the results there is one thing that is bothering me -snow. Really, all that time spent into making an detailed base just to have it all covered
But hey, you cant have space wolves without snow on their bases -its just not right.
I'm pretty sure dreadnoughts are terrible in 6th ed. but it doesn't matter, for me they'll always be ancient heroes of the chapter entombed for eternity of service, and a warmachine designed to break the back of armies...
