A bit more progress on my Contemptor, and I've now done the first coat of white. There's a lot of it on this model. With my Thunderbolts I use white to represent rank and veteran status; the higher a models rank within the chapter the more prevalent white plating will be in his armour and accoutrements. You don't get much more veteran or respected than a pre-heresy Contemptor dreadnought. The pilot may be only a few hundred to a thousand years old but the suit itself is 10,000 years old! That means lots of white!
