Thanks. The B@C contemptor isnt too hard to carve up, if you repose the legs, I suggest you have some 3-4mm tubing to go across where a knee joint should be. Mine was a bit of a hack job, but I took pics if you want to see how I went about doing it. You are magnetising exactly where I did. A word of caution, where you cut leaves almost perfect holes for 3x1mm magnets with no drilling, but I found I needed 5mm magnets for the claw/fist due to centre of gravity, so I widened the holes out a touch with a knife and if needed a bit of greenstuff att the back. My magnets are slightly exposed, but I do not mind that
Back to the dreadnaught. Contemptors are viewed with suspicion and sometimes fear.
Your contemptor could be Aethelstan. A spiritual beacon of hope and trusted advisor to Ragnar, shuinned by many of the packs, he stands alone as sentinel against the storm. Ambassador, councillor and warrior. Terran born he stands apart from his brothers. Not just in name, but in belief, howeveer the same warrior heart beats in his chest as does theirs and so he stands alongside, but apart from Ragnars company. Sometimes in the dead of night, Ragnar is seen leaving the compound and spends time with Aethelstan, learning from the old warrior.
Something which rankles with Wolf Priest Floki, who sometimes feels his position is being usurped.
The reason I suggest Tactical veterans, is that they can swap straight into 40K as grey hunters, a 10 man pack with 2 special weapons and a leader with wargear. You could the run pride of the legion.
Another fun idea would be to have Rollo lead the wulfen if you get any. O sometimes imagine him as a berserker, especially when you see him leap the shieldwall, and he carries no shield or armour, just a massive axe. Rollo, Ragnars brother left the company and went into the eye with another company, the 13th. A betrayal in Raganars eyes. Desertion by his brother to the side of another (Bulveye of the 13th). Now Rollo returns from the eye at the head of his pack, a band of men more animal than human. Can he regain Ragnars trust and become a member of the great company again?
Rollo as wolf priest or wulfen Alpha leading the shock elements of the army. Will need to see the FOC and rules when released. And also the FW ruiles when book 6 drops.
As for scenery, How about destroyed or disrepaired longhalls, inthe style of rohan from Lord of the Rings or a whaling settlement as seen in that dire movie Aliens vs predator? The occasional Imperial bastion or fortification, used to protect the inhabitants are the only signs left behind of who originally tried to settle the hostile land.
Lastly. for weathering, I suggest you check Spex out, oh and totem pole,
