As you can see I chose to purchase the multi-melta. I thought it looked so much different from the normal one that it warranted a purchase. I also picked up a regular fist with a plasma blaster inset. This is another 'variant' weapon that I think looks pretty sweet.
The main weapon that this thing will be using I think is the Heavy Conversion Beamer. The possibility of having a strength 10 AP 1 shot with a 5" blast is too cool to pass up. Plus the weapon looks awesome and so much different from anything else we're used to using.
Combined with the cyclone missile launchers this dude will be able to put out a TON of AT fire. I didn't pick up the Kheres assault cannons this time but at some point soon I will. They look so cool.
I love the relic contemptor body. The original one I bought was regular contemptor. This one has all the flair of the revered brother's dreadnought. The one thing that really set it apart is the eagle portion underneath his helmet.
I liked how the cyclone missile launcher piece came with the extra helmet. I will be sure to paint the rangefinder with a different color so it stands out. I love how the contemptor models have actual helmets - it makes it look like there is really a space marine in there.
The last thing I did was choose a scenic base for this model. At the price and the points you have to make this dude stand out (more than his different look will provide). Scenic bases are always a great way to showcase a centerpiece.
Stay tuned this week for paint hitting the models!
