Last year Greg over at Feed your Nerd hosted a great community event – DreadTober. In a very fun and encouraging manner we built and painted a Dreadnought type model. I managed to paint two Helbrutes last DreadTober – I was aiming to finish one but got swept away by the surge of shared enthusiasm. First I finished my Khorgorath Helbrute conversion (Mordici the Damned) and then Rizgar the Tainted.
Greg did a tremendous job in constantly updating the DreadTober page on his site, leaving words of encouragement all over the internet and basically holding the event together at the expense of his own entry. Hats off for Greg!
This year, DreadTober is back. The torch has been passed to Joe B over at Broken Paintbrush and he is currently setting up the community event. I strongly suggest that you head on over to the new DreadTober page and check it out. Sign up while you’re at it. Last year we had about 50 participants which led to insane amounts of awesomeness and inspiration.
I’m in. I probably won’t have time to finish my far from complete Forgefiend conversion (but I’ve stocked up on Green Stuff so you’ll never know). Instead I’ll be tackling the Betrayal at Calth Contemptor. Awkward pose, pristine condition and general neatness all got to go. Corrupted and tainted Khornate Contemptor Helbrute here we come!
Kill! Maim! Burn!
