Dreadtober Project Finished! - Plastic BatC Contemptor Dreadnought

Hello, Happy Dreadtober/Halloween if you are that way inclined. Thanks for dropping in. Here is my latest addition to the Relictors Battle Company, this time the 4th Company. This is my completed Dreadtober Challenge plastic Betrayal at Calth Contemptor Dreadnought.
I cut the leg and re-positioned to give more movement to the rather static plastic pose, and twisted the model at the waist to give a more dynamic sense of movement, perhaps in the middle of a turn to confront a new emergent threat?
I used a few SM transfers and subtly weathered them. The lower leg one denotes veteran status and 4th Company.
 I chose to have the Assault Cannon in the downward position merely to reflect he is changing stance to confront the next enemy. The remains of a dead Necron lies on the base, blasted apart moments ago...
All my Dreadnoughts have a black right shoulder, this time I chose to do a facing of green, the 4th Company colour as well as the large '4's'!
I would just like to say a thanks to the other Dreadtober participants for the constant source of motivation and some inspiration and to Joe B at Broken Paintbrush for organising this years event. And to Greggles for the original idea.
Lastly, a close up of the simple heat stain effect for barrels and exhausts, just application of 4 washes over a bright metal barrel. Tutorial from Ron at From the Warp here Heat Staining, we miss you Ron!


  1. That is so sweet; good work!

  2. Nicely done! The reposing is subtle, but adds a lot more sense of movement to the Model.

  3. Very nice. and heat effects in the right order is always a bonus !

  4. Well done, that looks really well. Fresh from a clean and ready to wreak havoc.


For the Emperor! (and other Xenos welcome...)
