Very cool! Loving how these turned out. Keep up the great work!
Showing off the bling, looking good,just like the rest of the army!!
Very nice! Did you make the arms removable? I think we spoke about it when I saw you at the bunker, but the Mortis Contemptors are the best AA for Space Marines as their qweapons count as AA mounts if the Mortis stands still. http://apocalypse40k.blogspot.com/2012/03/contemptor-mortis-dreadnought-games.html
Yes the arms are 100% magnetized so that I can mix and match with the 2 assault cannon arms and the 2 close combat arms that I have for them.
I got a couple games in with them over the weekend. In a 3-way game against Eldar and Necrons they work wonders to get rid of those pesky Scarab swarms as they are strong enough to double them out. I did have the misfortune of getting one of them stuck in combat with an Eldar Autarch, Eldrad and some Dire Avengers, but with some luck rolls I managed to kill the Autarch with a single hit and sent the squad running of the table.
This looks great! I bet it pops off the table in play. And yeah... scarab storms don't like assault cannons so much. Like so many little cherry tomatoes poppin'...
