Are these things in play now or did you use the design rules to make'em?
They're like mini-Dreads....how close are the costs?
That guy with 2 assault cannons and a cyclone launcher looks expensive. Like an Imperial version of the Obliterators.
Really cool models!
Point wise the Cyclone/Twin-Kheres Assault Cannon Contemptor is 215 points or so, the one without the Cyclone is180, the melee variant I think is like between 180-185. They are higher in point costs but slightly better in armor and so forth.
Really amazing models in my opinion.
The Cyclone/Asscans is like the opposite of the Eldar Dread with Starcannons
215 points doesn't sound bad. It's been a few years since I stopped playing.
I like big blocks of troops complimented by fast attack and artillery/heavy weapons.
I'd use Contemptors.
The models kick ass and your paint job is awesome.
I hate kids.
I also dislike the way GW handled the Sisters. They had so much potential and what we get is Repentia...
Is the firing effect modelled on or did you make it like that?
The only remark I have would be that the guns with the fire effect should not point down, would look better in my opinion and make more sense.
As for the contemptors I like their guns being down and I've caught a lot of flakk for their positioning however everyone does have their own perceptions and opinions. With that being said Ultramarines are known for having fought the Tyranids, a contemptor aiming down is not outside the realm of possibilities. I imagine him firing into an oncoming horde.
There are a few areas of improvement on these that could have been done but because I assembled them prior to painting some of the stuff (arm joints specifically) did not get silver paint.
Glad you like them though, if you get any and paint em hit me up with some links so I can check em out
