Finally for this fun little group of nutters, 2 contemptor class dreadnoughts:
This allowed me to convert the weapons on one to give him double assault cannons and have him pointing them off centre. The conversion opportunities are much reduced compared to the resin ones I did for the salamanders, but the reduced cost more than makes up for it!
More 30k goodness! With "beakie" Marines to boot! Fantastic stuff. As a fan of the "Horus for Hope" movement, I am of course very pleased to see these enlightened soldiers of faith, who had the courage to embrace change and reject the dictatorship of the so-called "Emperor". The story of the models themselves - rejected and found - matches the story of the Legion nicely. Those "hey, are you into this junk" (which turns out to be treasure) moments are rare, but they are fun.
Solid brush work again Jamie, and the religious touches are quite nice, fitting the back story of Word Bearers very well. And once again your dreadnoughts have a menacing look to them that is quite appealing. I also love the conversions of the autocannons...I was not able to get my own autocannon guys assembled properly, and seeing what you did here will definitely have me copying that...
Great work Jamie - another 180 points for you!
