In the bunny camp we have a few group projects for some of the forces involved in the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. You may have seen some of them before in the form of the Mechanicum and Solar Auxilia. Since the Custodes and Sisters came out we have slowly been collecting a sizeable force to create a Talons of the Emperor army and we are making some really good progress. We will be sharing what we have been working on in the coming weeks.
Contemptors have always been one of my favourite models. I really enjoy building them and ever since the Custodes version were previewed I was keen to get my hands on them! We had the Galatus and I got to set about building it.
We wanted an aggressive look, making use of the shield to hold off and knocking his foes out of the way and providing quick short jabs with the sword. This is what I ended up with:
I am really pleased with how it has come out and I can't wait to have a go at the spear wielding version when we get our hands on one!
We have a lot of other Custodes to show off in soon and we are very excited about them! Once we have a good size force painted up we will do a review of how they perform on the table top.
