This site was created late in 2008, just a few years after first becoming involved in wargaming. As you can tell by the name, WAB was my introduction to this community. I appreciate the following and comments this blog receives, and give all thanks and credit to my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It may seem odd that this blog appears to focus on the folly of mankind's continuous warfare, but I believe I can still enjoy this hobby so long as I put Him first in all I do. Maranatha!

Contemptor Dreadnought WIP
This is a Forge World resin model which I think is called a "Death Guard Legion" Contemptor Dreadnought.
I was lucking enough to pick the body kit up off of ebay for a fraction of the original cost. It was a Russian seller, who listed his location as Siberia! I was taking a chance, but saw he had a high number of favorable ratings, and the bid was so low (only one other bidder!) I figured, even if I got ripped off the money was less than a lunch meal. Anyway, it showed up the other day after only three weeks after winning the bid. It was very well packed and everything was included - even the bag.
The arms are another ebay purchase as bit parts from "regular" Dreadnoughts. I used some thin credit card plastic to modify the arms to fit onto the Contemptor shoulder guards. The body, arms, shoulder guards and head are magnetized for changing poses - as well as swap outs of arms in the future.
It's a cool model and one which I wanted when I first got the Space Marines bug - but didn't want to pay the full price - luckily there is a nice Siberian on ebay with deals like this.
A few different poses - the legs are fixed as it would take the use of magnetic ball joints, and that is too much work.
