Getting Started

 




October is upon us and it is time to get working on your DreadTober project! If you are anything like me, you probably started constructing your project months ago (...or years). The truth is, it doesn't really matter; DreadTober is all about enjoying our hobby and being part of a community. If you have a finished Dreadnought at the end of it all, that is a fantastic bonus. 

It has been fun watching all of the pledges roll in; there is still time to join the challenge if you haven't committed to a project yet. Towards the end of the week we will visit the various blogs and social media accounts to document our progress.

So far, I have managed to put all of my sub-assemblies together and I'm ready to start priming and undercoating. If you are about to construct your project, you may want to think about building it in sub-assemblies as well, to make painting a little bit easier. If you have a preference for how you start a project, let is know in the comments below. Good luck everyone!!

  3. Oh snap! Where do we sign on? I’ve saved a few Dreadnoughts for Dreadtober to make sure I’d have one for whatever strikes my fancy during the roughest teaching month of the year­čść

    2. Ha ha ha! You and me both brother; only, my dreadnought happens to be an Imperial Knight. Thankfully my hardest teaching month has already passed by. DreadTober for me counts as rehabilitation :-) FW Siege Dreadnought's rock, btw.

  4. I've seen a lot of people say they've lost their motivation for the hobby with no games on the horizon. Hopefully #DreadTober is a good enough reason to get back on the hobby horse. Shared experience, community motivation seems like a plan!
