With the main Thousand Sons force complete itís time to expand and begin work on their allies first up is the Legio Cybernetica robots employed by the Legionís 6th Fellowship and Pyrae temple. When the robots were described in the book strangely the way I pictured them was the old space crusade dreads so what better model to convert my basic dreadnoughts than a pair I got for cheap of eBay.
I decided to give up on trying to find 8 sentinel Autocannons and used the ones from the heavy weapon team instead, only this time I didnít shorten the barrels as I wanted to make the robot look designed for long range support. I then used Ravenwing assault cannon parts to attach them to the main body.
Other details include the armoured plates from the Furioso dread to cover the blank parts on the legs and grey knight apothecary bits for the scanner and searchlight.
Iíve played a lot of RTS games and the concept was based off the usual cumbersome heavy walkers so Iím pleased in how itís come out.
Now Iím just worried about painting it, the problem being that some of the old dreadís details are very faint so IĎll only really have one shot. I wish I had one crusade dread torso to practice on first!
