Once again I have changed my mind regarding a Horus Heresy army. I think I am now set on the the Blood Angels and I have finally put paint to model. First off is a Contemptor Dreadnought with all the guns, a pair of Kheres Assault Cannons and a Cyclone Missile Launcher.
I preshaded the Contemptor with my airbrush and then blended this up to red. There are a few spots that I could do with going back in with the airbrush to add some more shading. Most obviously under the carapace.
To drive home the Blood Angels look I used some brass etch from Forge World. I then proceeded to magnetize the weapons and head (and torso etc etc) so that I can switch the weaponry in normal 40k games but when playing Horus Heresy he will be the Talon Veteran leading two other Kheres toting Contemptors.
I am hoping to get some time in to get this guy finished but with Throne of LOLz this weekend and club nights this week (tonight is the first night of BattleUX) I might struggle with that.
