Ola! I've had this Dread for over a year and I thought it was high time he was painted. I love Deff Dreads. I think they're funny models and really exemplify the Orks in design and mentality. He's mainly metal and I added some pieces here and there. The upper arms and bosspole are all kitbashed pieces.
Fred's name came from me emailing myself in-progress photos. Every time I'd put in "Dread", the phone would auto-correct to "Fred". I eventually just got fed up and just let it go. So, his name became "Fred", which is a perfectly fine name for an Ork Dreadnought.
The painting method here was just Red and Black thick blending for the red. Red is particularly good for this for some reason. The metal-colored portions were painted black and drybrushed with GW Leadbelcher metallic paint. It'd been a long time since I'd used that method and I really like how it turned out for this model as I was going for a "just built" look for Fred rather than the worn and used look I have for many of my other vehicles. I considered hanging a "Wet Paint" sign on him somewhere, but decided against it.
I can't wait to get a new camera. I am tired of taking crappy photos, but these aren't too terrible. Enjoy.
