Last post on the blog showed off my reimagining of an old Contemptor conversion. I took it from Khorne to the Thousand Sons. I had a few things left undone (an arm for example) and some stuff that didn’t sit right, like the sword. I’ve got some more work done on it.
As you can tell, I changed the horns next to the head. I found this piece in the bits box and it just feels more Thousand Sons than the old pieces. It boxes in the head better giving the Contemptor a better look.
Next big change is the chainfist. The old one felt off or tacked on as Alex put it. I completely agree. So I decided to try and replicate the actual Contemptor chainfist that Forge World produces.
Close enough for me so I’ll run with this one. Sure it is a lot less Thousand Sons but I feel that the model have more than enough bits to convey that anyway.
The second chainfist is from the Ironclad Dreadnought kit. I love this one. It is so brutal and no nonsense. I tagged on two bolters and did some sculpting on the joint. I might revisit that part with some cloth or scrolls to cover it up a bit and draw attention from the less than stellar work.
Time to get some paint on it.
