At the end of Episode Seven I was steaming along. Dreadtober has been a huge abount of fun and has really reinvigorated me hobby mojo.
Finished the detailing on the front.
Painted all the bone area across the back as well. I am really happy with the end product. Through #DREADTOBER I’ve seen some really cool painting and conversions as detailed at Feed Your Nerd.
Regrettably, I fell short of the goal. My Helbrute is incomplete. At about midnight on November 1st, I declared my public shame.

It’s so close but even a Herculaneum three hour painting session on Saturday night couldn’t get me across the line. At the end of Dreadtober, the close combat arms are about half finished. However, I have completed the body and also the base. I have done more painting in the last thirty one days than I have in six months and seen some pretty cool miniatures along the way. I even experimented with a technique I have never used.
My favourite part of Dreadtober was being able to see the progress of my fellow Dreadtober-ians. Everyone knows that painting to a deadline is a great way to get stuff done and we should all know that it’s that much more enjoyable to be sharing the deadline with a heap of like-minded individuals. So thanks to Greg and Todd for setting the challenge. It has been a blast, even if I didn’t quite get there!
For those keeping score, I will get the Helbrute finished and photographed in the next couple of days.
