He's about halfway done at this point, as are most of my Word Bearers HQs. I'll go back to them eventually, I just needed to get back to my roots... I missed my XIVth sad.png

Hey, Death Guard update time!

 

Well, here it is... the Breacher / Siege Contemptor Dreadnought of the XIVth. Pretty much just kitbashing a bit with the Iron Circle Domitar and the Death Guard Contemptor... it needs a little cleaning up in places, but otherwise it's good. I'll be using the Iron Circle model to make a Cortus Contemptor utilizing Decimator Siege Claws... if it turns out good, I'll probably pick up two Domitar and make a full Talon. So here you go!

Absolutely fantastic!!! Love the simple conversion that is super effective at conveying the siege breaker dread.
Look forward to seeing your Cortus

Very dynamic pose, great use of the parts to create a sense of action

Thanks everyone! I've been wanting to build this guy for a looking time.

So, a little update here on the Contemptor... I was pretty disappointed in the Shield placement, as I wanted it closer to the body, as if being used to... well, shield the Dreadnought. I did some repositioning, and here's the result. I'm much happier with it now, as it seems he's using the Shield to block while just following through with a swing of the Hammer. I also had to ensure that the Shield, while positioned to protect the Dreadnought, would not hinder his line of sight. Maybe I'll prime him tomorrow if the weather is nice.

That is a great dreadnought! A talon of them would look amazing 😉. What are your plans for the remaining Domitar parts?

I'm actually using the Domitar body to make a Cortus Contemptor. The way I envision the Cortus is this stripped down mechanical monstrosity that's unstable and built for CC. The Domitar chassis is perfect for that!

It's pretty simple really. I cut out (rather poorly, derp) the ball used for the head socket and added the Death Guard Contemptor head. I was going to use Decimator arms, but after seeing how large they are on the frame I ditched that idea. So now I'm waiting on Contemptor claws... I've set up a little rig that should allow the claws to mate up to the body.

I don't know if I'll do anything else, we'll see.

Sounds good, I'd be tempted to build an arlatax Battle automata, but your idea sounds much more imaginative!

Nah, I don't play Mechanicum... they've got great bits for conversion, though.

Wow great work throughout this thread.  The termi praetorians face is awesome, and the anakatis blades look great.  Great conversions too, can't wait to see more.

Update time...

Finally got the DCCW arms to slap on the Cortus Contemptor prototype. I purposefully left the arms devoid of any weapon system, as I intend to pick up the pintle mounted kit and add the Heavy Flamer weapon to the back of the model since there's now an empty space where the Mauler Bolter would have been placed. Let me know what you think!

Both those contemptors are freaking epic brother I'm so buying a couple domitars so I can steal that idea. Your conversions as always are fantastic I can't wait to see paint on these.

Thanks man! Yeah, if I do any more I'm using regular Domitar and not Iron Circle. I felt obligated to do something with the model and not just use it for the Hammer & Shield. I had placed a Contemptor head in the chassis at first, but it didn't look right, so I picked up a couple third party heads meant for the Castellon or whatever the hell that derpy 40K Ad Mech. robot is called. I kinda wish I could have incorporated more Contemptor parts to make sure it's understood it's a Cortus, but what can you do? Maybe a Leviathan head would work.

ya know I'm not a huge fan of the head that comes with the Leviathan but that might actually be a good use for it also have you considered exhaust pipes? Or perhaps a single pipe? that might help give it more of a contemptor feel
