Took a while and I got distracted by my Deathwatch marine but I have finally completed my Contemptor Dreadnought. Great kit and a pleasure to work with, I hope the paint job does it justice.

I think the dread looks great. Since you don't use any red on him except around the base, he will stand out from the rest of the guys.

You might have an issue running that terminator sergeant in games. DW terminator sergeants are standard equipped with a power sword and stormbolter, which can be swapped for LC or TH/SS, or upgraded for 5 pts to a chainfist.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
BTW, where did you get that axe from? I really like the look of it, and was wondering if it is something you made, or something that you picked up from a different kit/bits site?

I was under the impression that power swords were now replaced with the option for power weapons (axe included) and modelled as such? (I am however inexperienced with the new powerr weapon rules) The axe is from the terminator upgrade pack from forgeworld. £14 for the kit but I needed the hammer/shield for my bellial and the combi weapons will be surfacing on other models.

You are correct. The new rule allows you to model a "Power Weapon" option in the codex as either

Power Sword
Power Axe
Power Maul
Power Lance

In this case, your terminator captain will have a Power Axe (Str +1, AP2).

The problem is the Dark Angel codex is so old, the Army List entry actually tells you that the Sergent has a "Power Sword". I wouldn't sweat it though. Dark Angel should come out by next April. Until then, you just tell you opponent that it is a Sword.

Yes, normally you can use any form of power weapon, but only if it states "power weapon" in the entry. For DW terminator sergeants, it states power sword specifically.

Cheers, I'd read the breakdown in the rulebook and hadnt looked at my old DA codex to see it specified as sword and not weapon, annoyingly it didnt get errata'd to weapon.

I'll just be hoping that the next codex changes it to the more adaptive power weapon instead of sword.

I love all your conversions, and your paint scheme has excellent contrast. When you're ready for freehanding lettering, you might want to try using a black micron pen. More control than a brush, and as long as you go lightly the lines are very thin.

Currently I have completed a set of 5 crested helmets for use on my tactical marines. When the models are done they'll be up but sadly due to delays it could take a couple of weeks.

Got a chance to head to London today and picked up another couple of squads for my growing army. Anticipating the rumoured contents of the 40K starter set rounding out my Dark Angels esque homebrew chapter I have looked to fielding a plasma centred imperial guard attached force targetted at eliminating highly armoured opponents in precise strikes across the battlefield. Whilst the tank is still in progress I have completed my Company Commander:



The paint scheme is still in its infancy but I feel it meshes quite well with the marines.

Obviously someone has been spending their hard earned money at the forge-world online store . Everything looks great. I love the different model variation in your army....the IG, the forgeworld stuff, the conversions on your SM.....its all looking awesome. I really like your contemptor though, an excellent paint job!

Cheers, the name of the thread shifts a little bit every time the project evolves, forgeworld did indeed eat a significant chunk of my paypacket for a couple of months just to get the models I wanted. Usually I opt for the cheapest option for running an army but with my marines I felt the need to spend a little extra where neccesary to make it a truly unique army.
