Heresy Era Thousand Sons - Contemptor Dreadnoughts complete!

Got in a fair bit of hobby time this morning and managed to finish off the Contemptor dreads - huzzah!


First up is the ever-popular twin Kheres Assault Cannon toting Contemptor Mortis. Equally adept at mowing down infantry and light vehicles, it also doubles as a mobile anti-air platform.

  

The second dread packs a plasma cannon and a plasma blastgun in its powerclaw. I tried to do a coruscating power look on the plasma coils on the cannon, relatively pleased with how it turned out.

Next up are the assault squad and a couple more characters!

Both poses are really well done - for all the posability of the kit it's sometimes quite hard to get convincing poses. They look really good (and the paint is great as normal).

Great work and I love the plasma glow in the barrel too. Great poses too, look natural and fluid.

Looking fab dude. Lovely paintjobs. A mighty addition to your thousand sons force.

I have a thing about contemptors. They are just so cool I have 4, and plan to make more just cos I love em :)

@Frothing Muppet: Aye - it's surprisingly easy to go overboard with the dynamic poses with the kit, I try to take a "less is more" approach. Cheers!

@Siph_Horridus: Thanks very much, man!

@NafNaf: Haha! I'll admit the desire to do a couple more m'self - a full Talon of plasma contemptors could be fun!

@Vitor: I appreciate it!

@Peter Ball: Thanks man!

@Zab: Cheers, bud!

Thanks for all the kind words, folks!

Fantastic work on them! The white trim really sets them off and provides a great pop among all that red and gold.

Dai said...

Super cool on both mate. Your scheme really makes them look badarse.
