I have started this thread to share the progress of my Emperor's Children army. Seeing this thread grow will hopefully motivate me to assemble, paint and finish a complete EC force and should provide my brothers with some entertainment.
I'll start off with a Contemptor dreadnought that I have magnetized. Magnetization is a bit of a hassle, but once done, there is a special joy and endless fun at swapping out the arms. Anyone who has magnetized some minis will agree on this point I think
For now, I only have this one Contemptor and four weapon options: a fist with in-built stormbolter, a melta, a Kheres assault-canon and a claw with in-built plasma blaster. I intend to buy many more weapon options and Dreadnoughts.
Be sure to be very slow and careful when chopping off the original arms. The Betrayal at Calth Contemptor is perfect because of the soft plastic used, which makes it very easy to cut up.
Here, the three weapons magnetized. Still need to do the melta.
Fist and claw. Looks a bit odd, because I positioned the claws for the left arm. It works on the right arm but the pose is a bit unnatural.
A very vanilla Contemptor. Just a test to see if everything fitted properly.
I'm waiting on a FW order of EC brass etchings in order to bling up this Contemptor. The original design is, -although plain-, very flexible. Normally, I would just slap on a few decals and free-hand some heraldry, but seeing as the EC love their bling and art, I think I should definitely go the extra mile and add on some beautiful FW laurels, IIIrd legion icons, winged claws, etc.
More coming soon!
