SHOWCASE: Iron Warriors Contemptor Dreadnought.

Right then guys time for all out Awesomeness!, This is the first of my three Iron Warriors Contemptors that I've painted with plans to paint the other two to complete the talon, Definitely going to make and paint another Kheres Assault Cannon Dread but not so sure about the third.

It's the first time that I've used Ink's through the airbrush and think it's worked out pretty good on the Assault Cannons.

A rear view and close up on those smoke stacks...really happy how they have turned out.

I've experimented on a lot of different base types for this project and glad I did so as I finally painted something that I'm really happy with, I think the dark earth and red tones of the weathering powders  complement the Iron Warriors armour perfectly also very happy with the spent shells and barbed wire think it adds a little more interest to the base.

On with the other two.


  1. Love how the assault cannons came out Jamie. This is an awesome piece! That base is epic!

    1. Cheers Greg, I'm really happy with how it turned out, Real shame I didn't get it finished for your Dreadtober blog event....maybe next time though Greg ;)

      Going to crack on with one of the IW's Tac squads now that the Contemptor distraction is out of the way.

  2. Did you build those Assault Cannons yourself? What inks did you run through your airbrush to get that heat coloration effect? Seriously nice work by the way.

    1. Hi Neil,

      Thanks man, No mate they are Punnisher Cannons from Forge World and the ink I used was dark yellow and purple.

      Hope that helps.
