Default A BaC contemptor's fall to chaos

I picked up a Betrayal at Calth box not too long ago, and decided that many of the figures have a very Tzeentch feel to them. I quickly decided that I had a massive conversion project coming up, which fits just oh-so-conveniently into my backlog of in-process and upcoming projects. Step one: hereticalize the included Contemptor model!

Here are the first few steps:

Step 1: Replace filthy loyalist helmet head with a spare Helbrute face.


Step 2-4: More modification.

Replaced melta-nonsense with trusty Heavy bolters, DCCW fingers with claws, carved some Tzeentchy stripes into some armor plating, test-fit some horns, and slightly embiggened him with some plasticard boot extenders.

Step five: Boot soles. Because Why live, if you can't get waaay too into a model?


Here's a direct link to the Imgur album; it has a few more pictures than are presented here. Feedback is always welcomed and appreciated.

Stoked to see this model finished. Great work so far!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

the model is indeed interesting, but we are losing track of the important thing here.

What is that brown liquid you are Drinking?

Thanks for the compliments, all!

To get the pressing business taken care of, that magical brown liquid is a Hop Abomination IPA, from Dry Dock Brewing CO. It's one of my current favorite grown-up beverages.

I think that I might have maybe possibly utterly failed to actually post the link to the ever-expanding WIP album, what with more pictures than are here and whatnot. Thus, http://imgur.com/a/uXbeg

Less importantly, I have a bit of progress to report.

As always, C&C is welcome and appreciated.

Excellent work on this guy! Is he going to be a Thousand Sons Tzeench dread, or another warband's? Also, pre-heresy or 40k?
