As a quick little detour from Tzeentch daemons I started working on some commisisoned World Eaters. Maybe you remember the other parts of this army painted earlier. With the addition of a ton of Heresy-era stuff by Forgeworld of course this army needed some new additions. First, a third Contemptor!
Unfortunately I can’t take credit for the base design. Always great when all that space on a Dreadnought base is used for a little mini diorama that tells a story.
In case you wonder about the background – I had a bit of a hard time making the model work with a white background. I’ll see that I can get that done with a white background as well in the future but I think it just looks so much nicer with a slightly darker, textured background. What do you think?
The whole thing is fantastic. The backdrop works really well for the pic too — straight white isn't always what's best, as your case prooves here. You can even imagine the smoky grey as the grit-filled skies of a battle field.
Wow. I love it!
Wow that's truely inspirational. Are any of you guys going to paint up the Eldar Wraithknight on the blog? 🙂 would love to see that.
Pretty darn awesome… with sauce on. Love it, love the diorama on the base, tells a great story. And love Contemptors, especially Mortis Contemptors with twin Kheres Assault Cannons! Dakka Dakka Dakka…. nice nod to World Eater's primarch's favourite weapons with the close combat attachments. Just great! A+

I love this so much. I like the grittier, grey armour. I like the blood and gore. Love the chain blades on the assault cannons and the marine reaching for the melta bomb is just plain awesome.
