The day has finally come for us to look back on all that we have achieved during DreadTober 2020! For some people it has been a very productive month of building, and painting, stompy robots. Others have only just completed their projects in the nick of time. Some are still working on their pledges in extra time, chasing that satisfaction of finishing what they started. Champions all.
Project: Tyranid Tyrannofex (plus weapon options)
Dave came oh-so-close to finishing his Tyrannofex, but decided it was better not to rush the finish. keep an eye out for his work when I do the fare-well post for the year and complete the 2020 participants gallery; I think it will be finished. In the mean time, check out his blog for eye-popping fex goodness.
Project: Death Guard Leviathan (Redemptor conversion)

Dave has finished some Blight-Haulers as a bonus project, and his Death Guard Leviathan is deliciously gribbly. I love this little yellow guy:
I cannot tell you how much I love this Dreadnought! I think I may have to get one for DreadTober next year... Amazing work DaveM, you have brought glory to the 1st Legion. Check out DaveM's blog to get a closer look at all the detail.
Project: Contemptor-Galatus (Custodes of the Damned)

Speak of the devil! Rory's Contemptor-Galatus "Lost Hope" is spooky as heck; I love it. A fitting project to finish on Halloween.
Project: Legio Fureans Warbringer Nemesis Titan
Last week Ed came screaming in low over the horizon with his afterburners glowing and sent this glorious Titan sailing in through the window. Terrific freehand work really sets this project apart and brings back happy memories of Epic 40K in the 90's!
Project: Space Marine

Here is another look at Siph's chonky Leviathan, alongside his other 4 years of DreadTober triumph. an incredible effort from a talented member of our 40K community.

Clyde has finished two spectacular Eldar Wraithlords with cosmic-themed paint schemes. I can see by the addition of the frogs on the bases that he is a man after my own heart!
I subscribe to Azazel's blog and saw this beauty pop up on my feed during the week. It is such a clean paint job, with clever discolouration on assault cannon barrel and neat free-hand motifs to pay homage to the African inspiration. What a beautiful contribution!
Floyd has worked hard to beat the deadline and produced this brutal looking Hellbrute. Great effort Floyd, it was well worth it!
TheFallen Star is also a mate from the MeWe 40K group. He completed this Ultramarines Redemptor using Citadel Contrast paints. I think it is a really neat finish and the base suits t perfectly. Bravo!
I finished the last touches on my Imperial Knight just after the deadline, having spent the weekend at the beach with my family. I am pretty happy with how it turned out; the snake warming itself under the fusion reactor sparks so much joy in me 😂.
Congratulations to all of the participants of DreadTober 2020! What you have been able to produce in one short month is incredible, highlighting the breadth of talent we have in this community. It has been wonderful to see so much diversity in the projects as well.
To celebrate completing the challenge, I have made a little gift for you. It isn't... great... but it comes from the heart 😉 If you would like to display this badge on your blog to identify as a participant this year, it is all yours. The ork dreadnought head is from the Deffdread I painted with my son early in the challenge; I figured it was a suitable trophy.
On the weekend I will be writing the final farewell post for 2020. If I have missed you completely, or you managed to finish that elusive final detail after the deadline, just let me know in the comments and I will make sure your project makes it into the 2020 participants gallery. It would be great to share with us which project was your favourite as well!
