The 1st Legion Update. Dark Angels Contemptor Dreadnought
here is the second completed unit for my Dark Angels a Contemptor Dreadnought. The models is from the Betrayal at Calth boxset giving me few options weapons wise but as I intend to use him for Great Crusade campaigns I went with the assault cannon for xeno killing potential. The model was part of the legion in a day project so went together quickly as it is very easy to assemble.
Following the attempt at a legion in a day all that was left to do was painting the weapons and weathering in preparation for the bunnies Christmas get together, but with so many things to get ready it was still a close run thing to have him ready. As with all the dark Angels I took on the day all that was unfinished was the bases.
In the bunnies Christmas get together battle this guy proved his worth by keeping Mortarion in combat until the primarchs pleas for help were answered by Angron. Against 2 Primarchs the contemptor stood no chance finally succumbing to Mortarion but leaving the Primarch with only 1 wound. He accomplished all that was asked of him keeping Angron and Mortarion from Inflicting any further damage to the loyalist forces.
The Contemptor has been great fun to paint and battle with and I will most certainly be adding more in the future when a legion specific one arrives although a leviathan or deredeo may be necessary to keep me going until then.
