    Hi all, hope thats my latest build is a Dread,
    want to upgrade it to venerable.

    I scratch some sections, the leg pipes are pins from cotton swabs,
    on the back i added some details and other small modifications with

    Here some impressions of construction progress,
    some weapon options to build quite complex and delicate.
    (for man with big fingers) :twisted:
    you can see, for example image 1 the bood claw parts

    The last two images shows the Dread red pre paintet

    thank you a lot,

    i use the colors of GW or water based acrylic paint.
    and i paint directly on the model !
    but I use 1mm or thickness cardboard, not paper

    I already used clear lacquer,
    only to protect it from dust

    Seeing pictures of completed dreads does tempt me somewhat :mrgreen:

    You say you used 1mm thick card, did this cause any additional problems such as folds and shaping ?

    Wondering if 0.5mm may work easier (for me at least).

    Hi, thanks for your note and request,

    I had no problems during assembly,
    everything could be shaped and fold well.

    It may be that it works equally well with 0.5 mm.
    I'm going to try it on occasion
