Looking good! Maybe you can add some bling to it? Surely a Contemptor deserves some along with a Venerable?

He's got a bit already with the gold and carapace decoration, but I've not given it any thought yet. I'm sure the bits box can provide but for now he's ready for the table top :)

Time for another shoddy batrep! The Contemptor gets his first outing, where I realise I forgot to paint the shin trim...

 

Legio Venator vs Sisters of Battle

The Mission with increasing TOs @ 1750pts

 

Legio Taskforce Dreadageddon

Hidden Content

 

Sisters

Hidden Content

 

The Legio wins the roll and deploys first, Stormtalon and Scouts in reserve:

gallery_30308_10077_18436.jpg

 

gallery_30308_10077_51718.jpg

 

gallery_30308_10077_20727.jpg

 

The Sisters deploy opposite - nobody is under any illusions where all the action is going to happen!

gallery_30308_10077_3629.jpg

 

Turn 1

The Sisters fail to seize, and I move up. Weapons fire is ineffective, stripping an Exo HP and stunning a Rhino. All five HKs do nothing, I wonder why I bother tongue.png

 

gallery_30308_10077_68599.jpg

 

The Sisters gribble up, but careful not to get too close. Weapons fire is largely ineffective, the Leviathan losing a HP and the right Combat squad loses a couple of Marines to the Retributors.

 

Turn 2

The Scouts Outflank, I pick the right side to cause some mischief and hopefully go after the Exo. I move my forces up, running the combat Dreads who aren't in range. Combined Dread fire takes out the damaged Rhino and I manage to plink off a fair few Seraphim. The Techmarine patches up the Leviathan, naturally!

 

gallery_30308_10077_42592.jpg

 

gallery_30308_10077_102051.jpg

 

There isn't a great deal the Sisters can do, I get lucky with saves so it's mostly manoeuvring. The Canoness is heading back to deal with my Scouts which isn't great. The Vindicare rolls yet another 1 for damage.

 

Turn 3

This is where things will get interesting. Combined fire takes down some more Sisters but both combat Dreads fail their charges. Bad times. Fortunately the Stormtalon swoops in to blow the Exo up which is a load off my mind as it managed to roll high for the number of missiles.

 

gallery_30308_10077_80063.jpg

 

As expected the Sisters now pounce, the Leviathan is stunned and the Repentia destroy the Ironclad (the Mistress dying in the explosion). The Seraphim are moving up on their right flank but there isn't much for them to do. The Retributors put a HP on the Stormtalon, otherwise it's all about moving to the central scrap.

 

gallery_30308_10077_111025.jpg

 

Turn 4

Change of plan for the Scouts - they go after the Vindicare. Not that he's done anything, but better odds than the chasing Canoness. That aside it's all but preparing for charges. The Stormtalon drops into hover to get patched up and three Dreads charge - netting me a lot of VPs in a game mostly devoid of them until now. The combats go very well for me as you'd expect, Celestine (who bizarrely lacks Eternal Warrior) falls as does the closest Sister squad.

 

gallery_30308_10077_10045.jpg

 

gallery_30308_10077_47972.jpg

 

At this point I'm not 100% sure on turn events - was a busy weekend! The Repentia charged the Leviathan (not sure when) and fell to wall of death. Celestine got up again and went after the Techmarine but not before he challenged a surviving Seraphim squad and his servitors helped out (even surviving). His 2+ save and AP2 attacks are earning him an enviable reputation in combat.

 

The Stormtalon takes out most of the Retributors but they return fire but Jink saves the day - just. The Techmarine repaired it, naturally. The Scouts failed to reach the Vindicare, getting caught by the Canoness over two combat phases. Not that it was needed, as the Stormtalon took him out with a snap fire krak. The Retributors were finished off by the Leviathan and the Contemptor lost to a melta (I think I forgot the 5++ too) - nothing the box Dreads couldn't avenge though.

 

After my turn 5 my opponent concedes with no hope of matching my 9 VPs.

 

gallery_30308_10077_28842.jpg

 

gallery_30308_10077_28504.jpg

 

The Sisters were literally dusted off for this battle, so they make my Marine collection look cutting edge! There were certainly many optimisations that could have improved the list. It was fun to field so many Dreads but I'm hoping to get a new unit or two done over the upcoming holidays for next year smile.png

We made the mistake to game after a party again, I was a bit tired so failed to take and decent shots of the models. Or rather better ones? It was good to spice games up with a different army (certainly not new),

 

I have plans to field a 7 Dread army as the next upgrade :D First I need to do some other bits, I'm thinking of using some of the BoP MkIIIs for some Tacs but we'll see what takes my fancy.

Time for a new project!

 

gallery_30308_10604_13017.jpg

 

I have been mulling over what to do next for the Legio and I've finally settled on it smile.png I plan to fully magnetise them so I can swap their load outs thumbsup.gif I'll also add the Captain in Cataphractii armour, though sadly he's not alterable. A shame as I'd like to give him a helmet at the least :(

Base coats are almost done on the Cataphracti Captain:

 

gallery_30308_10604_21871.jpg

 

Only a few more strap bits needing attention but it's too late to risk messing them up. Once that's done I'll be ready to do the gold which will be most of the work I reckon. Attacking with some washes and the highlights won't take long afterwards smile.png

He looks good in green! ;) Rules-wise what's the chainsword on his left arm? A CCW or a Chainfist?

He'll get some the the lacquer style black to match with the Contemptor on the shins and top shoulder pads, to help denote the armour's status as a relic from a bygone era smile.png Cataphracti armour has the same options as normal Termies (or rather, less!) so it can only be a chainfist. A limitation of the model unfortunately but I figured with his 4++ and a re-roll on 1s he should have fair enough chance to swing!

 

He's a good way to sort the Cataphractii scheme, plus I'm drawing blanks on magnetising the others so I'm considering my options there.

Sounds like it's going to be a good scheme for the Cataphractii! Should make them stand out from the standard Terminator armour thumbsup.gif

Just need to decide on what to do with the shields (e.g. on shoulder pad). Perhaps white?

I'd say see how the rest of the model goes then decide on what colour to do the heraldry shields (as I assume that's what they're for) at this stage. Paint them last!
