Imperial Fist Venerable Dreadnought

Hmmmmmmm. Not sure how I feel about how this one turned out. I cracked the shrink wrap around 2 pm today - I guess it probably took me a few hours (with long breaks for kids, dinner etc) in total.  I had high hopes for how he'd look using this yellow, but I'm not sure. Maybe I over-weathered him. Likely what looks great on my Orks won't look as good on Space Marines    What do you guys think?

Update: This guy will be on ebay tonight, along with the previous Beastmen work and a Carnifex. I decided to hold back the Imperial Guard to flesh out the stuff I'm selling for them.

I agree with the above comments. The yellow is beautifully done, just a bit too weathered and Orky looking in the obvious lack of care. If the weathering was fresh looking, with more silver metals and less rust Id think it would work better.
The only other thing that really hit me as I looked at it was the unbroken amounts of yellow on the model. I dont know a lot about this chapter, but is there any way to introduce a secondary color? Black stripes on the fist? Not sure where, but something to break up the yellow.
Another thought that just hit me was the use of a banner, that would be a great way to lend this model a sense of the unique.
Nicely done yellows as usual though.
Cheers, B

Yep, good comments: too much weathering, and need some black sections! It was a fun experiment though :)

My first impression before I even read your concerns about over weathering was that it was a bit too much. I like a bit of battle damage on marines but theres a very fine line between the perfect amount and overdone.

The amount of yellow on Imperial Fist vehicles can sometimes be a bit overwhelming too. I've suggested to one of my friends to break up the yellow with some black. I think GW uses red to break it up a bit but I'm not a big fan of that combo.

Overall I've been very impressed with your recent updates, keep em comin.

Nothing wrong with the yellow itself, it looks good. But your gut-feeling about the weathering is right! It is over the top for a dreadnaught. The imperial ones are supposed to look more shiny and all. As it looks now, it appears like it have been "un-tendered" for a long time (suiting for orcs and chaos), where as imperial ones, I reckon, would be polished after each and every campaign.

Although, I do get the effort of parts you have weathered, as they are the where it would take most damage (fist in particular).
