Space Wolves Venerable Contemptor Dreadnought #1

I was trawling around looking for ideas for a Venerable Contemptor Dreadnought for my Heresy Space Wolves Legion, when I happened on Den of Imagination and their interpretation on Bjorn.







Inspiring, hey?

Well I thought so, and hence I started to build my own, beginning with the plastic Contemptor Dreadnought. I am looking at this project as a dry-run for the Leviathan Dreadnought, with respect to sculpting wolf fetishes and paraphernalia onto the hull of the miniature.

As often stated, the legs of the plastic Dreadnought are very static, so I thought I would alter them, starting at the hips, using the original plastic 40k Dreadnought hip joints.



I took a jeweler's saw and cut the face plate away and will replace it with a face plate from the Venerable Space Wolf Dreadnought kit.



Next, I will cut the powerplant away and use the Venerable Dreadnought's more embellished powerplant.



Hopefully I can then find some time to press mold the fetishes from the assault cannon,  and use them with Green-stuff to add as embellishments on the sarcophagus.



More to come on this one.
