Horus Heresy Contemptor Dreadnought WIP

I found a little time this week to make progress on this guy.  I’ve airbrushed with Vallejo black primer and layered over Mephiston red and Evil Sunz Scarlet from the citadel air range.  I’ve tried to achieve some subtle blending on parts which isn’t as consistent as I’d like but I do like how subtle it is.  When layering the two reds it’s hard to notice a difference between them.

That’s as much airbrush paint I intend to get on the model.  Next I will apply Vallejo gloss varnish to protect the model and assist in the panel line wash and black lining.

After struggling with panel line washing when doing test models I have had some success with the mig panel line wash for aircraft.  Since this is an enamel based product designed for the job it works beautifully.  Very satisfying to do, I’m looking forward to the effect on this model.  I’ll be using the Black Night colour.
