Badab War - Mantis Warriors Contemptor Dreadnought finished!

Hey guys,

I finally managed to finish the Contemptor Dreadnought for my Mantis Warriors, just in time for The Fang Painting Competition 2013 – I placed second in the Warhammer 40,000 Vehicle category! The reason the model turned out semi-glossy is because I didn’t shake my Lahmian Medium before usage.. I’m scared to use matt varnish as I’ve heard it usually ruins the metallics – any suggestions for a matt varnish that is safe to use?


  1. Really liking it. Scheme works really well and the weathering is spot on.

    Congrats on the 2nd place.

  2. Can't think of any matte varnishes that stick to your specs.

    However, I'm overjoyed to see you back at your Mantis Warriors and I hope that you'll keep on working on them! Also, are you still working on some INQ28 characters or have you dumped that?

  3. Awesome work on all your mantis warriors so far! Will definitely be following this blog.
