After the roaring with laughter response to my Ogre class assault walker dreadnought conversion:
I have once again let myself loose on the Imperium's beloved tech to build something special for my slowing growing Space Wolf/Space Marine alliance.
This time around, I am working on a Contemptor stand in, based on the Dreadknight chassis, currently dubbed the Golem class Battle Frame.
The main design aim was for an enclosed cockpit, and a pose more akin to the Scouts I have used for my Power Armoured Space Marines. The weaponary is also more subtle than the standard Dreadknight gear.
Here are some pics to show where it is now (forgive the quality - mini photography still not my forte):
It will be armed with a Kheres Assault Cannon, Close Combat Arm with Heavy Flamer and Cyclone Missile Launcher - a good versatile load out I feel. The arms are done, I just need the Cyclone, but I have the parts for a dry fit of what I want to do.
Having made the decision to use properly produced scenic resin bases and turn these into slow but well loved modelling projects as much as new gaming armies, I am now slightly neutered as the bases have yet to arrive, so I have many boxes of models, and thats about it.
But I thought I would share my masterplan in the meantime.
