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!


  1. 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).

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

  3. 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 :)

  4. Great Job, that looks pretty sweet.

  5. @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!

  6. Looking fantastic! Great work.

    If you're interested I've just finished my post-heresy one too :D


  7. Awesome poses, awesome paint job, awesome dreads! Nice job!

  8. @Matthew Davies: Thanks man! I'll check it out!

    @John Lambshead: Thanks very much, John!

    @Greg Hess: Haha! Cheers bud!

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

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

  11. Cranking out good stuff as always, love it!
