CONTEMPTOR-GALATUS DREADNOUGHT

Part of the custodian force i painted up was the Legio Custodes Contemptor-Galatus Dreadnought. This model was a lot of fun and I got to use the candy apple red colour again with black accents.

If you get the chance to build a Custodes force it is worth it, As you would expect from most of Forgeworld’s gear they are great models to work with. Very rewarding.

 

Painting

I followed the same paint scheme as the rest of the Custodes force for this dreadnought however i did change up the scheme with the addition of the black shoulder.
