Note the crotch plate has been bent straight. The curve was all wrong if I mounted it there unbent. :HQ:

Also I'm going to try making the lightning slashes tonight out of putty but it that fails I'll just paint them on. My GS-fu is not exactly world reknowned but I'll give it a go. :)

Loving the multiple chapter crusade thing going on with also picking out certain squads for certain chapter trates, very appealing, i love the pose of your C.dread.....has that real feel of, "I'm taller, bigger and better than you.........and i kick you a longer distance than my miget dread cousins"
"My brothers we have been sorely wounded and brought to our knees, but i ask you to rise from the ashes of despair, by flamer we'll burn, by bolter we'll purge and by blade we'll cut out the heart of the greenskin body, Brothers rise, for you are sons of Dorn, for we the Crimson fists and we shall never fail" - Pedro Kantor

The more I see the contemptor dread, the more I want one ^^ especially when I see the pose of this one. Great job so far !

Thankyou brothers. :)

I know it's been a little longer than necessary but here's a small update - I've been putting together some of my crusade army (slowly - I'm working through multiple projects right now) and I used my unpainted Contemptor in an inaugural campaign game yesterday. He not only survived but he spent the game locked in combat (okay, he was tarpitted by Grots, so sue me*). :P

Anyhoo, I've had some P3 Armour Wash turn up today ready for the paintjob (I'll be using the metal recipe from nurgling6688's Astral Claws blog) and now all I have to do is finish off my Chuck construction-wise (basically just the icons).



* Reduced to one attack by grabba-sticks, Stompy (provisional name) squished one Grot per assault phase, but never really forced them to run. B)

Oh dear, this blog has languished for five months - I apologise for my tardiness, brothers. ;)

Okay then, to kick this thread in the posterier I've taken the 2012 LPC vow: I, Olisredan of the Index Astartes, vow on the honour of my Chapter to paint and present at least one entire Imperial Fist Captain and one entire Storm Wardens Contemptor Dreadnought on or before the 31st of March, 2012. I promise to provide at least two WIP updates, preferably with pictures, in that time. I vow that if I should fail, I will provide the Librarium with an article and wear the Signature of Shame until my penitence period is done.

Pictures coming soon. :lol:

You and me both, brother. :(

I know, I know. It kinda got away from me. First one thing, then another took my attention away - hence the LPC vow. :)

Okay... turns out I'm still a procrastinator. Who knew. The Contemptor is part the way done but I'm posting up pictures of 'Brother Olis' for now, created for this challenge.

He was made in about an hour, had quite a rummage in my bitz box for his component parts and magnetized his head so that I can give him a bare modified SW head later. I'm quite pleased with him (although I think I may have overmodified his bolter). :)

I'm done! Thank Christ, I'm done. ;)

So, here we go - Brother Olis with and without a helmet (and me). Sorry about the dodgy lighting.

My ugly mug. That reminds me... need a shave...
Posted Image

Brother Olis in his full battle plate. I thought the MkV helm suited him very well.

Good lord, I'm crap at painting faces. It's been a while since I really tried and... no difference. Still rubbish. :P Anyhoo this is a space wolf head sans the ponytail, fangs and the old hairline. The new hairline (flattering as it is) is painted on with Calthan Brown.
Posted Image

You can just about see a little bit of a head wound there - representative of a fight I got into with a drip tray (and lost).
Posted Image

Ah, yes. Skull and crossbones. I was really into pirates about seventeen years ago - just before I got into 40k. I thought it was kinda appropriate that the first self-insert representation of myself had something to do with pirates. :lol:
Posted Image

So, there we have it. One challenge down, one to go. :angry:

Try mixing Tallarn Flesh with a little codex grey for stubble, works a treat.

With any luck this will be the first proper update of two (and also quite possibly the cheekiest vow completion this year if I pull it off), here is a literal rush job of my Contemptor dreadnought:

It's my own fault really - I waited and waited and now I've got to get this done, go to an Inquisitor tournament at Warhammer World (whilst scribbling a scenario and my characters down) and wish a mate a happy birthday. Feel free to point and laugh, gents. :rolleyes:

Looking great fella. That yellow looks solid but the pictures are blurry, any chance of some clear ones?

Thankyou brother. Glad you like him. I have a couple of other arms for him that are awaiting attention, so I might try to get them done in the not too distant future. :)

I'll get some up by the end of the week (doing painting of a different kind this week). Yeah, the yellow took about five layers to get smooth but I must say that the Captain is rushed. I won't lie about it, he's been done to the bare minimum so that I could complete the LPC. :unsure: That said, I'm going to keep touching him up (especially the purity seal and the white on the shoulder pad).

Suffice to say I finished on time (just) but I don't feel that the Vow Complete! banner has a rightful place in my sig due to my shoddy work and procrastination. :sweat:
