I have been crazy busy with work this week, so only managed to post a couple of finished projects in Part 1. It is time to take a look at the remaining Dreadnoughts and celebrate the wonderful efforts everyone has made.
Name: Rory (Stepping Between Games)
Project: 2nd edition metal chaos dread
This classic Iron Warriors dreadnought brings back lots memories from playing 40K back in the 90's. Rory has done a great job painting this one, particularly the energy effect on the power scourge. I love the base too, it looks like the Iron Warriors have totally wrecked that city!
Project: Ultramarines Rogue Trader era Dreadnought restoration.
Facebook: Neverness Hobbies.
Neverness has done a great job showing this vintage Furibundus Dreadnought the love it deserves. A dead chaos marine on the base is nice finishing touch (the more the merrier). I lode the old conversion beamer as well. It wasn't long ago that I used one of those on a Techmarine dread for DreadTober!
Project: Deathguard Contemptor Dreadnought
Project: Pre-Heresy Dark Angels Contemptor Dreadnought
The idea of collecting some 30K 1st Legion units has been growing on me and this project has probably tipped me over the edge. I may very well do a Contemptor like this next DreadTober; it looks glorious! Bonus points for all the free-hand checkered patterns ;-)
Name: Joe M.
Project: 3 Paragon Warsuits
Project: whatever things with legs I have sitting around unfinished....
Project: Contemptor Dreadnaught
Project: Tau Commander
Project: Foetid Bloat Drone [and more]
Project: Iron Warriors Contemptor
Project: Redemptor dreadnoughts
Project: Kitbashed Killa Kan
Project: Varied. I've got a number of things going that could qualify, including a kitbash inspired by Mission: Dreadnought from Space Crusade, a couple of converted True Mechanicum Robots, and a take on a White Scars Venerable Dread that I'm pretty sure is unique!
WestRider has amazed us with DreadTober creations this year. To cap things off, we have an updated version of the classic Chaos Dreadnought from Space Crusade. If those eyes aren't a gateway to hell, I don't know what is.
Project: Imperial Knight Preceptor I think, that or Rotigus!
Project: Old school Blood Angels Dreadnought
Project: Lions of Harlech Dreadnoughts
Project: Deathwing Redemptor Dreadnought

Just like that, the DreadTober deadline has arrived. Once again, it has been amazing to watch these projects come to life. The creativity and hobby expertise that has been lavished upon them is inspiring. I will be posting pictures of all of the projects over the next couple of days. This will be split across a couple of posts, so that I can spend a little extra time reading what each challenger has to say and selecting multiple photographs. Once I have competed this series of posts, I will upload everything to a new DreadTober 2022 Participants gallery.
Let's take a look at the final progress shots from our first five DreadToberteers!
Project: Blood Angels Contemptor Dreadnought
XarfaiEngel has been working hard to finish this Blood Angels Contemptor, weathering the heck out of it with oils. With only minor final touches to add before the deadline, I'll be checking for a final photo before assembling the 2022 Participants Gallery. As it stands, this model is already a real beauty! I particularly love how the scroll pays homage to the challenge, featuring the date X-MMXXII.
Project: Ork Dreadmob
Sachiel has made a tremendous effort to complete this epic Ork Dreadmob. It was an ambitious project, attempting to complete such a large collection of models, but I think we can all agree that the execution has been excellent. Bravo!
Project: contemptor-esque chassis roll-a-lump-of-glue-in-the-bitz-box
D decided to build his DreadTober project out of nought but bits and nightmares. Combined with his characteristic painting style, this project takes the award for being the grim/darkest this year. A brilliant finish to a highly technical build.
