Hey everyone, Silvernome here back with more Chaos Legion goodness!
I’ve always been a fan of the Chaos Legions, but since I mostly play Death Guard and Thousand Sons I never really have had the chance to paint the other Legions without building out a force. I’ve always had a soft spot for dreadnoughts, they are just so iconic to Warhammer, so I decided to start collecting Contemptor Dreadnoughts from each legion to give me that chance to paint them all. When I’ve eventually collected and painted them, the grand plan is to make a small diorama to show them off.
My seventh dread in the series is the Emperor’s Children! As I shared in my previous Contemptor posts, I fully magnetized the dread (you can find my quick tutorial my Youtube channel) so I could hot-swap weapons on them all. I also magnetized the feet of the dread so when I eventually do a diorama, it can look at home on that display as well as a base themed for my army.
I’ve always wanted to give the favored of Slaanesh a try. I’ve really loved painting pinks/purples with my Thousand Sons & Tzeentch models. I was torn on going more 30k (purple/gold trim) or 40k (pink/black trim) so I tried to do a mixture of the two, showing them progress in their devotions. I decided against too much weathering on this kit as I just think that they are very vain and how dare their armor get scuffed.
This was definitely a lot of fun but would really love to see how this scheme would translate to some Chaos marines. Maybe in the future if GW would release the Daemon primarch version of Fulgrim…
I’ve also started to create video showcases, taking a closer look at my finished models. You can take a 4K look at this Emperor’s Children dread on Youtube – https://youtu.be/8pDJIfLAR6g
To finish off this share, I thought I’d throw a look at all the current finished dreads in a Traitor Family Photo. Only two more left to go and then to start thinking about a display for the lot of them…
