Thousand Son Dread 2 by Proiteus Thousand Son Dread 2 by Proiteus
The 2nd dreadnought is completed, nothing much to say about it apart from posing was a pain due to the baseís angle.

The plan was to downgrade the dreads to basic and get a 3rd but I certainly canít afford to part with £45 for another Contemptor so Iíll be arming the first dread with a close combat weapon and multi-metla and fielding 2 Legio Cybernetica robots for the rifle dreads instead. Course this guy will still be busted out now and then for some tag teaming.

That's pretty darn fantastic. I love the details like the weathering and gold work. I would be proud to have something of this quality as a centerpiece of an army.

Did you have a picture of how you made this (i.e. before sprayed and painted). As I am sure you had one on before, and love how you have made the extended arms, and would love to try to do it myself

Aside from the basic bits such as putting a scarab over the Aquila and a nice head crest on the helmet I converted the heavy bolters to Autocannons.
I shorted down the IG Heavy weapon team Autocannons because I felt they would have looked odd if I had kept them at their original length.
Another edition was 2 strong magnets to make the arms exchangeable, now they weren’t wide enough so I brought some plastic tubing the same width as the arms to put them in and thanks to the Dread‘s size this hasn‘t effected the model too much.

This - as is everything else in your pre-heresy army - is fantastic work.
So full of character and skill.
Do you have enough for a gameable army?
