Dreadtober is Coming

Can you believe August is already over? That brings a few things: the end of summer for us in the north, Nova Open, and anticipation for Dreadtober!ย Due to exciting things in Greg’s life, I’ll be hosting the month-long painting event this year, and it’s going to be awesome! And Lo! Dreadtober is coming!

For those who missed it last year, Dreadtober is a community challenge to build, paint, and show off a dreadnought sized model during the month of October. There isn’t any competition or reward other than getting one of your models finished. But the participants had a blast last year and some amazing models got painted.

I’m still working on the details for the challenge, but if you are interested, sign up below and I’ll keep you up to date. I’ll be using email to keep in contact with all the participants, but don’t worry, I don’t spam and I won’t automatically add you to the newsletter (though I hope you check that out too!).

Stay Tuned for More to Come!

A more formal announcement will be coming out in a few weeks, but tell your friends, tweet it out (#dreadtober), and share your ideas at Nova Open.ย I know I’ve got some KillaKans and a Mentors Dread in my bits box that need some paint.

Until then!

  • I gave a friend the only dreadnought I have… can I really manage to convert another dark vengeance hellbrute…

    • Your Iron Warriors need a big brother ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I don’t know, I made a mess of them first time and all.

        • and by that you mean “I stepped out and tried something new and learned some new things” ๐Ÿ™‚
          That and I may be a bit biased towards the Iron Warriors.

          • Are you secretly building an Iron Warriors force that I missed?

          • Sadly my Iron Warriors have been neglected for many years, but they were my first army and I have a substantial force (https://brokenpaintbrush.com/tag/iron-warriors/). I still have a bunch that need finishing.

          • Quite an impressive collection there, much envy. Love the Warpsmith.

  • Awesome, I’m in!

    • Fantastic! I saw you were picking your space puppies back up, are you going to give Bjorn a brother or paint another crazy clown machine? Either way it’s going to be epic ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Well I have a Betrayal at Calth contemptor to convert, which I think I will do, but I also have my talos as well, so depends what I feel like on the day really ๐Ÿ™‚

  • AJ Taflan

    Awesome!! I have a Blood Angels DC/Furioso to paint….Now to decide which variant…..

    • Awesome! Looking forward to it
