DreadTober 2023 is About to Start


By name and by deeds, they FEAR NOTHING! With October less than a week away, it is time to start planning your Dreadnought themed project for DreadTober. 

DreadTober brings people together from all around the world to share in the hobby we all love. Last year we followed the progress of 22 DreadToberteers, as they fired up the forges of their paint table. Who will answer the call in 2023? Whether you are a veteran or a neophyte, the invitation is open to all.

This year a wide range of amazing miniatures have been released that would fit the challenge brief. We also bid a fond farewell to a 40K stalwart; the castraferrum dreadnought. Which model has caught your eye? Which venerable pile of bits has been calling out to you from the depths of the grey tide, challenging you to awaken its indomitable spirit?


How to Join

Collectors of every faction are welcome to participate; the only guideline is that your model should fit on a 60 mm base (or larger!). If you would like to be involved, please post your name, project and site/blog address in the comments. If you post primarily on other social media sites, feel free to provide a link so that people can find you and follow your progress. Additionally, using the hashtag #dreadtober will help people find your work.

Progress Deadlines

I will be doing a round-up of progress at the end of each week. The progress deadline is every Friday at midnight, with the aim of posting your work here every Saturday until the end of October, with a final post or two at the start of November to celebrate our successes.

If you have questions about participating please ask. Share the invitation to join with your friends and followers; the more the merrier (Dreadier?)!

Good luck everyone; eternal glory awaits!!
