Old Stuff Wednesday - June: Black Templar Dreadnought
Circa: May 2004. All the years that I have been doing this, I believe I have only painted three dreadnoughts. That is quite strange since I really like Dreadnoughts. Not only that this is one of the very few miniatures that I have painted on commission. I essentially never paint on commission, nowadays, I would not even consider painting on commission unless it was an amount that could not refuse. I cannot justify the time that it takes and most people are not willing to pay me the amount that I would ask for anyways.
So this is basically, I think, the third Black Templar that I have ever painted. Did I tell you that I dislike painting black and white? Oh that's right I did, but I do like the iconography.
I also did this in the so-called NMM paint style. This was the old metal model, based on a plastic dread base.
I do think the stripes held break up all of that black. The red lenses really jump out.
Below is a close-up of the front. I do love painting crusader like crosses.
