Galatus – Dreadtober 2020 #1

By | 10/16/2020

For this years Dreadtober event I am adding a Galatus to my Custodes of the Dammed. For those that don’t know the event is themed about about more Dreadnoughts to the battlefields. This is the fourth year of the event and I didn’t want to miss out. While these models can be used in Horus Heresy, I am planning to exclusively use them in Warhammer 40k. My Custodes are building to a 2,000 point list and it includes a Galatus. So I best get working on it.

So far not a lot done, feels like a more more since the cleaning of FW resin takes a while. The traditional sword this model comes with had an accident, the whole model flipped off a shelf and it snapped. The original sword is quite thin, so I decided to replace it with something more substantial. Enter an old Demon Prince sword I had laying around.

Time for all that metal to get it’s rust effects now, can’t have it looking all clean now can we? The shield will be getting the sample purple I have used as a spot colour throughout.
