Dreadtober 2019 - Siph's Project - Space Marine Original Metal Dreadnoughts

Hello Dreadtober-teers! My favourite hobby event of the calendar year is back again for another installment, feel free to click on the sidebar picture for a link to the main Dreadtober site, this year being run by Joel (Mordian7th) so a massive thanks to him for keeping the hobby event alive for another year! And thanks to the founder Greggles, and Joe B and Todd (Sincain40Kfor their contributions too.

Dreadtober is an annual event held over the month of October where hobbyists pledge to do a dreadnought-sized model from the to-do pile and get it finished, starting 1st Oct (tomorrow) and hopefully completing 31st Oct (Halloween/All Hallows Eve/Brexit?) with lots of progress shots and encouragement along the way :)

So, this year I am doubling up my efforts and producing two Dreadtober Dreadnoughts, well I thought they are quite small so two should be good - I have two metal Dreadnoughts from back-in-the-day I have been lucky enough to be able to find and purchase with Dreadtober in mind, stripped and deconstructed (oh enamel paints...) and ready for the starting Bolt Pistol tomorrow.
Cleaned up and smelling of Dettol
Okay, not quite an "Eddy" Deredeo Class as he has a Lascannon Arm and DCCW but that's his name now.
Furibundus "Fury" Class with Missile Launcher and Las Cannon

Meet Eddy and Fury (Deredeo and Furibundus) twins who will be joining the Relictor ranks this Halloween all being well. Good luck fellow Dreadtober-teers and wish me luck, Cheers, Siph.


  1. Great to see some classics like this making a comeback. Good luck.

  2. Can't wait to see the results. Best wishes for the project!

  3. Awesome! Ain't no school like the old school!


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
