Dreadtober 2017 - The dreadnoughtening!

It's that time of year again! Dreadtober 2017 is shaping up to be a big one - Hobbyist extraordinaire and all around fine fellow Todd Sherman has taken up the gauntlet to help run this years festivities, may the Emperor take mercy upon him!

Naturally I didn't think my cunning plan all the way through and just days before the event was to begin I finished up the Sons of Horus dreadnought I'd been working on. Can't claim that as a success, so I cast my eye across the shelves and it settled on one of the leftover models from the recent Thousand Sons force that had never gotten beyond the build stage.

The beautiful Osiron dread never quite fit into the force as by the time I'd settled on the Orbital Assault list, the Dreadnought Drop Pod had gone out of production on the FW site and there's been little to no word of its return. Looks like we have our dread to work on for Dreadtober!

Todd has set up a blog to help track all the awesomeness at - go check it out, and by all means if you have a dread you've been wanting to finish (or dread finishing) join in the fun!


  1. So that'll be the start of what-your third Sons army?

  2. "Dread finishing". Ha-ha, bonus points for the pun!

  3. Think it would be his fourth Sons army? But really he is secretly going to gift it to me :p

    In reality though I am looking forward to seeing you put paint on that beauty. Remember Dreadtober is meant to last a month.

  4. Can't wait to see this finished.

  5. @Da Masta Cheef: Hah, technically it'd be the fifth!

    @Neverness: Har! Glad you caught that one. :)

    @Rory Priest: Haha! So I shouldn't finish it up in the next couple days? :)

    @Riot: Cheers, man!

  6. O wow - that might have to be my fav thus far of the legion specific Contemptors. So much cool detail. Going to be a fun one to watch mate!

  7. @Dai: Aye, between this one and the Sons of Horus one, the designers really knocked it out of the park!
