Showcase: World Eaters Contemptor Dreadnought

Jason’s been working on a small project: wanting to paint all the Chaos Legion contemptor dreadnoughts! Next up: World Eaters. Read to find out more …

For my fourth Chaos legion contemptor dreadnought, I picked the World Eaters. Another icon legion and another of the Chaos Gods devotees. I was torn on what I wanted to do for the color scheme for them. I didn’t want to do the tradition 30K version (white/blue) cause I thought it would maybe be too close to my Death Guard and I already have done blue for my Thousand Sons but I didn’t want to go full 40K (all red) either.

After doing some research, I found myself reading more about the Red Butchers and checking out their artwork. This is what inspired me to do a mix of both 30K/40K: White legs and arms but full red on the shoulders/body, as if he was transitioning from the traditional to the current scheme.

The scroll on his chest is still blank while I figure out what I want to have written there. It was also really fun to test out with blood and gore on a model. Normally I wouldn’t add it, but for the World Eaters it felt very fitting. I’ll have a tutorial on the site soon on how I achieved the gory details in the claw.

I’ve also uploaded a 4K video showcase to Youtube…

With the World Eaters dread complete, that brings me up to 4 traitor dreads! I just placed my order for the 5th model to join the group, wonder what it’ll be, have any guesses?

Here’s a look at all four together while they wait for their 5th member…
