Contemptor Dreadnought Rebased

Todays post covers a rebasing of my Contemptor Dreadnought. I haven't been happy with the original base for a while now, and this week I wanted a quick and easy hobby project so thought I'd spend some time giving this model a more detailed base. I've included a comparison image of the old base... I hope you agree that the new one looks much better!

I chopped up an old Rhino door,  a couple of brass parts which are part of the Citadel Warhammer 40,000 Basing Kit (image below) and a chopped up bit of ForgeWorld Resin spru for the feature details on the base. I used techniques covered in the ForgeWorld Modelling Masterclass for weather the base. This basically consisted of using oil washes and diluted weathering powders to achieve a realistic look. As can be seen from the image of the old base, its so much better and more fitting of such an awesome model!
