So, let's start out with the Leviathan Dreadnought this time. I acquired some vehicle heraldry bits via eBay. They're technically Dark Angel bits but without all the skulls and death angels icons so they work for other chapters. There is a great large bit that went on the right shoulder piece and then some scrolls and purity seals that were placed in various places on the Dreadnought. I'm still waiting on the base that I ordered which should be here somewhere around the middle of next week.
The Leviathan Dreadnought is Gweirwys, who was originally an Imperial Fists veteran sergeant. During the campaigns to re-establish control of the Empire after the Heresy, Vet Sgt Gweirwys was laid low by a Night Lord assault termninator and was then encased in a Leviathan Dreadnought. When the Lions of Harlech were founded, he left the Imperial Fists to join the Chapter as a guide and advisor. Gweirwys is one of the Chapter's most sacred relics due to his ties to their proginator chapter. He seldom is awakened now and is roused only in the direst of situations, passing the decades and centuries being tended by chapter techmarines and serfs.
Next, while digging for some bits, I found an unopened Battletech Bearcub that somehow got misplaced and lost. It's been assembled and primed and now needs painted to join the Charlie Star of my Ghost Bears. That will finish off my Scout/Reconnaissance Star.
I also got the next four omnimechs painted. They'll get me to most of the way to completion for my clan force.
Unfortunately, after I had finished, I realized that I had done the blue layers backwards with the darker on top. Not sure how I made that mistake or didn't notice it before I moved on to later steps. Quite irritating as the Trinary had been going so smoothly in the paint department so far.
can definitely see the difference
Not wanting to completely strip all four of them down and start over, all I can do now is paint one more mech in the darker scheme and put them all together in one star. Then they'll fit into the scheme as a whole but don't look odd paired with other mechs.
Still making good progress and even doing well with keeping the blog active, so whoot go me. That's all for now and I'll see you all next time.
