Adeptus Custodes Contemptor Dreadnought Idea

I just put in an order for this sweet model and some arms for him.  From what I understand the Mortis Pattern can take two TL autocannon arms and a cyclone missile launcher.  I plan to make the launcher out of typhoon bits I have lying around; I'm sure it will fit and will also save me $15 on an already $80 project.  I haven't bought a 'new' kit from GW in a very very long time and my first order from Forgeworld ever is this one.  I can't wait for it to come in and get to work. . .

I am a bit scared of painting that large of an object gold but I think if I break it up with some red panels it will look good.  I'm excided to work with a forgeworld kit for the first time; I've used resin but usually just 1-3 piece kits so it will be a learning experience.

I think this project will segway into a custodes mini project involving a land raider, a strike squad of grey knights and maybe a terminator squad with thunderhammers/stormshield since I don't have any of those yet.  Time will tell since I have many items in the mail, many projects half done on my desk and many other ideas.  So lazy...


  1. Are you using the Puppet War arms? I hope they are not too small!

  2. Yeah I plan to! I hope they fit. To be honest though I can find a home for them on a regular dread I have lying around but I'd really like them for this guy. From the pictures I've seen on the internet, they're oversized on a regular dread so they should fit *fingers crossed*
