PH Thousand Sons Conqueror Robot UP by Proiteus PH Thousand Sons Conqueror Robot UP by Proiteus
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!

I looked at that and the first thing that came to my mind was shades of the ED-209.

Where did the conversion/robot come from? I keep links to lots of conversion sites so :)

the conversion is mine, the robot itself is the old rogue trader dread.

Imperial Robots and Dreadnoughts did have a lot of standardized and interchangeable parts, and during the Great Crusade it wasn't unheard of for Space Marines to salvage damaged or even fully operational Imperial Robots to repair their Brother Dreadnoughts. While in return the Adeptus Mechanicus Legio Cybernetica Adepts were just as willing to tear apart a Dread for spare parts, regardless of the state of the occupant, though obviously not in front of other Space Marines.

ah the classic ed209 walking security system, looks surprisingly good with the updated weapon systems...
