Bigger, Stompier, Drillier. Now With More Grav Flux!

Like the namesake alludes to, the Leviathan Dreadnought is a monster within the Dreadnought family. Both in terms of stature and stats. As soon as I saw it on the Forgeworld website I saw a fresh canvas for painting with it’s large surface area. Admittedly, I’ve only used this model once or twice on a table. I don’t play the game much. But I think I may have built it more as a centerpiece for my infantry than a usable table piece. Because it really does look great behind a squad of troops.

In it’s simplicity, the Leviathan was fun to paint. and modeling it was pretty cut and dry. Though you can pose it’s legs, I don’t think the legs are as posable as the Deredeo’s. But I may be wrong. I modeled mine walking. The more and more I look back on this though, I feel like I mailed-it-in for the base. So I think I will be revisiting that in the future. Maybe add some rocks and tufts to build it up a little.

I followed my usual pattern for Iron Warriors while painting this Leviathan. And utilized my airbrush and masking tape for the hazard lines. On my favorite part, the siege drill, I used the tested and true Typhus Corrosion and Ryza Rust formula, before adding some Army Painter shade to it. And for the Grav Flux Bombard I used a couple layers of Druchii Violet shade over Leadbelcher. Then Necron Compound dry brush to bring the highlights out a little.
