Forge World Contemptor Part 2
I really wish I could have written this post sooner, however, I had a slight snag with my Contemptor - it was missing one of the shoulders. A quick email to Forge World rectified the situation. A week later my Contemptor was finished being built.
I opted for a running pose, and positioned the Contemptor at the front of the base. I positioned the power fist extended forward, with the hands spread as if it were spraying promethium at its foes. The head is following the line of the power fist arm. The lascannon arm is aimed low and to the left, targeting another foe. Behind the Contemptor, are the mangled bitz of an Iron Warrior who the Contemptor plowed through, dismembering in a gory spray.
I kept the paint scheme in line with all of my other Ultramarines. I painted Boltgun and Dwarven Bronze on the Iron Warrior bitz. I then did a wash of Devlan Mud and final highlights of Shining Gold and Chainmail. I then splattered Baal Red on the Iron Warrior bitz to add some kind of blood effect.
