" Fear God and Dread Nought"

As I already admitted, I have a dark secret. In years gone-by, I  played Warhammer 40K, and I still possess a Space Wolves Army. My addiction didn't stop there. Over the years I supported Games Workshop by discretely purchasing their miniatures for non-GW sanctioned games.  If that makes me a heretic, then heretic I am.

An early purchase was the Contemptor Class Dreadnought. It is difficult to find images of their early dreadnought models but I found two photos online. One reports to be a GW figure from 1987, and the other is an image from their 1991 catalogue. In my opinion both images clearly identify the figure I have. IMO it wasn't one of the workshops' more successful designs.

Below is an example of a really bad paint job, and I am the person responsible.


But the Contemptor does not stand alone. What Space Wolf army would be complete without Bjorn the Fell-Handed and a trusted Iron Priest to keep him running.

Space Pirates

I've had these figures for somewhere close to 20 or 25 years. I painted them up for a Traveller Campaign I was running at the time. I liked the look of the figures, and always thought of Flash Fearless vs the Zorg Women Parts 5 & 6 -Space Pirates when they were on the table.
