It is time to get started on those Dreadnought projects! I wish you all the best this week as you start constructing and priming your machines.
The deadline for progress photos, posted on your nominated social media account/blog, is Friday at 11.59 pm (wherever you are in the world). That will give me time to put a progress post out next weekend. If you haven't joined the challenge yet, it is not too late. Please let me know your name*, and Instagram/Twitter/MeWe account or blog address in the comments below.
This year I am working on an Armiger Warglaive, using some custom parts from Taro Modelmaker. This little fella is going to be the final** model in my Imperial Knights army: The Walls of Ithaka. Loyal allies of my Iron Snakes, the concept for this army came from an old Spartan quote. When asked why his city lacked walls, a Spartan king once pointed to his soldiers and said "Here are Sparta's walls". The Walls of Ithaka are a small Imperial Knight House, that works closely with the Iron Snakes to defend the Reef Stars. This Armiger will be named "Patroclus" Audax, to compliment the Knight Preceptor I painted for DreadTober last year: "Achilles" Aeternum.
Does your project have a background story? Feel free to share!
