Horus Heresy - Second Contemptor assembled


I've finally had a chance to assemble the second Contemptor Dread for my Death Guard. This one is carrying a multi-melta and dreadnought close combat weapon (with heavy flamer). I wanted to give this  guy a proper hunched feel, as though he's being very precise with his shot placement.

Hope you like him : )

Cheers
Dave

  1. I hate being negative about people's hard work, but the squat looks a bit too extreme like he's about to sit.

    1. Thanks Ambit for your comment. I've taken a closer look at the model, and I feel the "center of gravity" of the model is still over the feet, but I can certainly see how one or two of the camera angles might give the impression otherwise.

      Cheers

    2. I love you man, but that pose looks like he is constipated. Someone had to speak up. ;)

    3. Multi-melta to the face John, that's what you'll get! ; )

    4. He's even got a pile of rubble right behind him!

      Good thing I am putting dozers on my rhinos.

  2. I love the pose and think its perfect - it's dynamic in a defensive manner... Perfect for an ancient and wise Contemptor.

  3. He looks like he has to poop. For Nurgle!

    1. Perhaps he'll be my Traitor Dread?

    2. Does that mean you'll model a symbolic lodge coin on him?

    1. Alberto, I'm also looking forward to getting them finished. I do have a few other Mechanicum projects I'd like to tackle : )

  5. I like it! I find there's always a couple angles that end up looking goofy on the Contemptors, I think it has a great solid heavy look very suitable for the Death Guard. Can't wait to see it painted up!

  6. I like the pose. To me, it has a "duck, fire, dodge" feel. Seems like his next action after firing will be to pivot in the opposite direction to take on the enemy coming from that angle.

    Of course, I've never been a fan of the "standing tall" pose a lot of folks use for their Contemptors, so my opinion is probably biased.
