I painted this Blood Ravens Contemptor a while back, and it’s another model I love from Forgeworld! The model itself is magnetised with two weapon options, an Assault Cannon and an Auto Cannon.
The model was painted in seperate sub assemblies – the torso, arms, legs, base and weapons. The red was painted using Gory Red (VGC) over a grey primer (Vallejo polyurethane). I then highlighted it with some Bloody Red (VGC) but not overly so, as I was going for a dark red look.
All of the metal on the chassis was done with Gun Metal (Army Painter), and then washed with Nuln Oil (GW). I don’t spend too much time on the metal other than getting a nice even coat – you can hardly see it on the contemptor.
The bone armour was painted using a base of Zandri Dust (GW) followed by Ushabti Bone (GW) and a line highlight of white.
I used Forgeworld Decals to get the Blood Ravens logo, and built some individual markings using some of the options on the sheet. I really like how they turned out!
The weathering was done using a sponge, and Charadon Granite (GW) on the bone. I wanted to weather the red but didn’t want to over power the model, so just used a tiny bit of Fire Orange (VGC) and Gun Metal on the red to pick up some areas.
I hope you like this Blood Ravens Contemptor – please let me know if you have any comments or questions by commenting below!
