WIP: Iron Warriors Contemptor Dreadnought.

Hi guys just a little update on the Contemptor, Really liking this miniature so much so that I'm craving a few more.

Still got a bit to do as you can see but I'm liking it so far guys, The Assault Cannons are up next after I've sorted some barbed wire for the base.

I used two transfers from the new Forge World Iron Warriors sheet and one from an old Imp Guard sheet.

Really happy with how the Iron colour worked out on this lager model, I was a little bit nervous as I've only painted Tactical Marines thus far using this technique and wondered if it would work so well up scaling to the larger miniatures.

I used an idea that I found in one of the Forge World Masterclass books for the exhaust pipes, It's really easy to follow and I think it looks so effective, For this project I will be doing all the pipes this way whether they are on Tanks or Dreads.


  1. Awesome paintjob so far. The metal looks really worn, subtle wear on the chevrons as well. Never liked those being too bright.Very nice. I'll be sure to take some inspiration from your take on the IW Contemptor.

    1. Cheers Revan88,

      I'm really happy with it so far, I have been adding some barbed wire and spent shells to the base this afternoon....only the arms to go.
