It's been a long time since I've posted any of my War Hounds Space Marines.
Having finally fixed the idea of the colour scheme it was time to move onto the Contemptor.
This is the first vehicle in my War Hounds arsenal which meant much larger areas of colour to somehow fill in and still match the troops, while keeping it's own identity.
Contemptors are all characters really - so how to reflect that...
If you've been following the ongoing saga of the War Hounds Space marines Project Blog, you'll know that I've been thinking a lot about how they look. When my friend Rob suggested the War Hounds have an element of gladiator to them; they fight in tournaments against one another, they are brutal hand-to-hand fighters and they fight to the death when in combat - it got me thinking about gladiators!.
What do you think of the War Hounds as having an element of Gladiator to them? Would love your feedback before I stuff this up completely!
~ Further Clarification from Forge World in the Update Below ~
The Forge World World Eaters Transfer sheet arrived today, so thought it would be a good opportunity to show them to you.
The sheet itself is nice and thick with the decals very clear and crisp.
The metallics aren't too shiny and would look to scale on heroic scale minis.
For the price, they are perfect especially with postage to Australia only $2...
I will be interested to see how they look on the models, as i'm very happy with the free-hand one I did last time as it is.
So today I was trawling through the Forge World website and happened across the World Eaters Legion Transfer Sheet... and surprise surprise - there's War Hounds Chapter symbols on the sheet!
It's a miracle... no more free-hand Chapter symbols!
Thank you, Forge World - lets order some and see what we get!
Time to kit out the next War Hounds Space Marine!
The story goes that the War Hounds decorated their armour with spikes and other such close combat viciousness - this of course went to ridiculous ends when they became the World Eaters!
The Astartes of this Legion often modified their armour by adding large spikes on the shoulder plates to not only evoke fear but also to turn the armour's surface into a weapon in its own right.
Today I received these great torsos from the Forge World World Eaters Rampager squad.
Now I wouldn't buy them usually, as the Heresy World Eaters don't really appeal, but the torsos will go very nicely with my War Hounds!
The Forge World Contemptor Dreadnought was was met with much hollering and excitement, so I was pretty anxious to get my hands on one.
After much pestering about it from my friend Rob, we both decided to get one and give it a go.
There's some beautifully painted ones online, which I must admit worries me a tad, especially when it got here and I saw how small it is...
So here starts the adventure!
I will be painting mine up to go with my pre-Heresy War Hound Space Marine (scroll down on this link).
Ok - so it's new project time.
Yes I know the Dreamforge Mech isn't done, but I had an inspiration - a bolt from the blue.
So a while back I was working on that Consecrator Space Marine in an attempt to find an interesting chapter. But his left me with a problem - they weren't around pre-heresy and I really want to do something pre-heresy!
So who better than a Space Marine Legion that no longer exists?
Yes, the War Hounds - precursor to the World Eaters (which every man and his dog seem to be painting at the moment). They got me curious that's for sure, so I broke out the paints, did a whole lot of reading and did this
