Vlka Fenryka: Deredeo

Hello all

It has been a while coming but I have finally completed my Deredeo Dreadnought for the Rout. 

So this was my first of many Dreadnoughts for the Wolves, a tester if you will. I had an Eddy kicking around and never looking as if it would ever be painted. So I thought "why not just do it for your Wolves, let's see if I can make it fenrisian". 
He does fit in well with the gang as it stands, so I am quite pleased with my palette and weathering. 

The pattern on his torso does disappear in some lights, as does the wolf head on the red stripe. 

This is a bit of a shame, as I really can't make the Red any darker without changing the feel/look of the model. I will ask advice from FW next time I speak to them. 

I made use of Typhon corrosion for the first time on this model after hearing it recommended it thoroughly by Mark Bedford. It is really good and I think I will use it in the future on most models. 

I also used dry earth and a bone coloured set of weathering powders for the shins. This was the first time I have used them on a Dreadnought before. I used AK Interactive pigment fixer (still not 100% convinced that it will stop fingerprints moving the pigments all over the model, but we will see). 

I also used black soot over the barrels which was then fixed with pigment fixer. 

The rest of the scheme is as my Vlka Fenryka scheme which you can easily link to on the left in desktop mode. 

So now to finish Freki and Geri for the Lord of Winter and War

  1. Great looking Dread! Love the grey tones you've used for the Wolves as well.

  2. I've had the same decal problems on my thousand sons - the gold decals just don't "pop" over the red armor as much as I would like or had hoped. I'm basically stuck doing gold decals over a black or white stripe/panel, and only using the white decals over the red.

    1. I've had the same issues with the wolves decals. At the opposite end of the scale is the GW wolves sheet which has a white backing on the gold decals and they are maybe too bright! You need something in between I guess.

  3. Looking great, love your 30k Wolves scheme

  4. Looks excellent. May I ask where/how you used the Typhus Corrosion?

    1. I second that, the mini looks fantastic but i want to know where the corrosion is?
      I'm glad you've shown this off, I want to include one in a 'fury of the ancients' army but wasn't sure what it'd look like painted up for my wolves

    2. Duncan says it well here to be fair:
      But I did not use it for streaking (I prefer several thinned layers of Seraphim Sepia on the Rout, as they are not that dirty).

      I mainly used it at the bottom of the legs and in a few recessed areas.

    3. The rear at the bottom of the ammo hoppers is a good pic.
      How many times have you driven behind an old lorry and looked at that corrosion and dust effect they have going on. . . every time on the motorway for me. . .

  5. I love it! The gray lends itself well to a red highlight.

    For the hard-to-see knotting and wolf's head, maybe just brush on some fine highlights?
