Welcome back friends. Another exciting week of lets watch Greg paint a single model! This week I finally get the dread yellowed up, and start the chipping process.
Starting with a semi teaser so people read further...ha you all read anyway, you love the dreads! Admit it!

My dear Lord Iapetus,
I send this urgent message to you in search of counsel. During a recent operation on the planet Persephone, an artifact of unknown origination was retrieved. We are unable to place it in a stasis
container and ship to you, due to the size of the artifact and our inability to construct a similar
container of larger size and maintain our current level of operational security.
I must also admit to be concerned as to the nature of the artifact as it is similar in shape to the unrecovered device found on Pathos IV. At this time, it appears to be inactive. A cordon has been established around the site, though somewhat surreptitiously.
That fact, in and of itself, would warrant a deep investigation by your presence, but there are additional
concerns that have elevated my level of concern.
Welcome to Weathering, with your Host Rusty Greggles! This week was a flurry of activity on tiny sections of the dreads base, and his little grot controller Francis.
First just your standard metallics. Bunch of leadbelcher everywhere, being careful to leave some areas which are still dirt. (you'll see why in a bit).
Welcome friends! I'm in full production mode! Since I got past the hobby block of how to successfully mount the Deff dread, I'm been a buzz with activity. Should hopefully have him finished in a week or so to meet my (sorry Dave) late deadline due to my ultra slow painting speeds.
First off, here is the final posing. I can still adjust the arms slightly, but pretty much everything else is knocked into place. I'm currently working on trying to figure out the cable from the grot remote to the dread (you can see the wire in the background), but other than that, the build is done!
Short off day post for you all! I forgot to mention that the Nova Open Charity Raffle is now live! Buy your tickets!
So many amazing artists have contributed! Including everyone's favorite Mordain7th!
But that's not all. Have a Dread update! I worked on finalizing his pose last night. I think i like his arms best like this.
This pose is further along, as his other leg, claws, shoulders are now in place. Put a marine in for scale. He's quite intimidating! You can barely see the little grot in front! I'm thinking arm poses from the first set of photos. Thoughts?
Welcome friends! Had a great hobby breakthrough this week. Have been tearing my hair out trying to figure out how to get the deff dread base setup and finished. Finally woke up with an idea and went straight to work!
I went to work grabbing some bitz and bubs to both support the main leg section, as well as cover up the gaps in the various sections of the base. Looking like a proper scrapyard base now. Tried to think about things like...how would someone get onto the rhino top? So made sections which they could walk up, and scratch marks from the constant climbing of the gretchin.
Welcome my friends. Been a pretty quiet week on the hobby front. Spent more time setting up things for the wedding (and working out back issues) then doing anything hobby related...this is bad because I need to get that Deff Dread finished stat! (And work on my Nova army!!!)
I did get one hobby awesomeness though! Finally got a Heresy Book!
Exciting day today everyone! Not only have I been painting like crazy lately, but I finally finished something...and it's my best paint job to date!
As I mentioned before, these models are part of a multi-artist donation for the ork army in Nova Open's Army Raffle this year. Tickets are available online (soon), as well as at the event itself. All proceeds go to Doctors without Borders. So please donate! (it's a tax deduction too!)
Welcome one and all to the great "greggles gets his groove back" post. Where I go nuts painting and update more then once a week. Who would have thought!
Quick house update! Got a ceiling fan in the hobby room now. Super score! Now just need to patch all that drywall, buy new desks and completely rework it....but that is for another post! Lets talk about bases!
It's Monday! Surprise! Honda is taking a break while he deals with real life issues, so I've got a weekend update for you on the Nova Open stuff!
Check it out! I'm on the artist page now! It's for reals! I haven't been leaving in a Mek's dream! :) Also buy tickets. I'm required to say that for the children, puppies, and kittens. But seriously, I have gotten a bit of painting and work time in.
Welcome back one and all! Short update for you all this week. My normal hobby time (Wednesday and Weekend) got a bit side tracked. We went to Pittsburgh to visit Sarah's maid of honor and attend the art festival being held there. It was a wonderful time, but completely ate into all my hobby time! Not all was lost though, got some wonderful weathering shots, and picked up a wonderful new piece of art by Brianna Layman
It's a lovely piece, made with a variety of media types. Just loved the flow of it. It's now our second purchased piece in the house!
It had to happen eventually. I'd have to sit down, pick up a brush, and go to work. Luckily most of the garage work is done for the time being, so I could finally sit down and prime/highlight a slew of models.
I did my normal multi-spray primer (grey all over, then white from above) to get the ork flesh down. Then I also started on the bases, by spraying all the sand the base color. I'm a bit behind in the Nova Open Charity timeline, so hopefully I can catch up fast.
Centipede - any of numerous predaceous, chiefly nocturnal arthropods constituting the class Chilopoda, having an elongated, flattened body composed of from 15 to 173 segments, each with a pair of legs, the first pair being modified into poison fangs.
Yes, my pretties, it is bug time again.
For this episode I would like you to consider what is very likely the most ferocious predator in the insect kingdom, the giant centipede.
Welcome welcome welcome...to the Greggles home remodeling network. Where I lure you in with talks of orks and hobby, and then quickly throw in some plumbers and dry wall!
As you can imagine, this week has been full of doing pretty much everything but hobby. Lacked quite a bit in free time, as most was spent on moving things, cleaning things, or trying to patch holes in walls! But at least the plumber is done with the house pipes now! Lets see what I was able to get to!
