A Pox on Your House! And a Dread...

"My Lascannons! They do nassthing!"
Things are still in the 41st millennium on my painting desk lately. Seems I just can't quit the Dark Imperium box set or the Horus Heresy. First up was another Dreadnought for my Heresy Era Imperial Fists army. For a guy who only wanted to dip his toes in the Heresy pool, I feel like I'm suddenly up to my armpits in it.
This Contemptor is made from the plastic kit from Betrayal at Calth.
I added the twin lascannon arm from Forge World with just a little
conversion work.
The plan is do one more armed the same way - because you can do silly things like take a Talon of Dreadnoughts
as a single choice in the Horus Heresy.
I've also set about knocking out the Death Guard side of my Dark Imperium starter kit. I figure I'll just do that and a tank. I know, I know, I'm kidding myself… Ugh! Anyway, I decided to tackle the Poxwalkers first, as there are so many of them. I figured that I would enjoy them the least because of the shear numbers, but I was super wrong. These models are damn-near perfect - lots of character and individuality, simple construction, and the right amount of details to really make them easy to paint with washes. I'm actually looking forward to doing the next 10.

Sing along now - "I'm a Pox Walker, I'm a Pox Walker!"

I'm trying to participate in a hashtag on Twitter called #Hobbystreak. The basic premise is to get at least 30 minutes of hobby a day and to see how many days you can continuously go for. I'm on day 4 so far. Let's see how long I can keep it going.

I like the idea of this unit having been an Imperial Hazmat team that got infected during a routine clean-up job.
What's important is they all seem to be having a good time.

Before I jump into the next batch of 10 guys, I'm going to treat myself with one of the Death Guard characters - the guy with the big bell.

  1. Mine are still languishing in the box so seeing your superbly painted collection is acting as inspiration. Loving the 'dread.
