Relic Contemptor Dreadnought

It's been a while since I posted what with one thing and another.
So I've got a big game of Apoc next month and early next year 2 tournaments hopefully wher I'll be fielding marine dreadnought forces.
Towards this goal I bought a Relic Contemptor Dreadnought at Games Day this year!
What a deeply cool model! Really well designed, the arms and legs are all widely pose-able and the mould quality is excellent meaning that I only needed minimal pinning to get a good strong model. I pinned at the pelvis for both legs, both shoulders and the fist to wrist joint.
The pose came about from reading the contemptor entry in Imp Arm Apoc 2nd Edition..... the word which sprang out at me was FLEET!! So I went with a pose which simulated a full on lunging charge. (A pose nigh on impossible with the standard GW Marine Dreadnought models)
Over the next week or so I'll be painting this bad boy so stay tuned for the finished model!!
