Papercraft Contemptor Dreadnought
I built the Contemptor Dreadnought from plans made by Eli patoroch. I had to modify the arms a bit since it seems the weapon arms did not include a part for the joint between the guns and the shoulder. The foot part was also colored incorrectly on his template. Some of the parts were inverted, which I corrected in the recolor I did. A few of the parts required tabs which were not present. Still, mad props to the guy for making such an awesome kit into paper. I plan on giving this to another player who’s been wanting one, but is having difficulty paying rent, much less ordering stuff from Forgeworld.
If anyone wants a copy of my modified plans with the corrections I mentioned (including dual autocannon arms and silhouette automated cutting paths) just email me and i’ll send it to you.
More painted miniatures
Here’s two figures I painted up for a friend at the local gaming shop. Dude painted his Black Reach dread up so bad I told him I’d re-paint it free of charge just to help him out. My thought was that if he had a nicely painted centerpiece to the army, he might try and take a bit more time painting the rest of it to match instead of just splotching white and red paint on his figures in a few areas. He mentioned wanting to try out a chaplain, so the figure here was built from random leftover parts in my bits box. Plague marine head modified to be a skull helm, Fantasy staff and backpack decorative bit made into a crozius. I like to modify the backpacks on chaplains to have skulls for the exhaust vents. You can see the freehand on his chapter symbol shoulder, but there’s also a neat looking painted skull that takes up his entire right shoulder as well. All in all I’m pleased with how they came out.
I still have to go back and make the jewels inserted into the left skyboard orange, but other than that, these two hellions are now done. THe one on the right is riding the decorative skyboard from an earlier post.
