Default 4th Addition Dreadnought?

Sorry its night and the photo is dark.
He goes with my Terminator update I did and this was something I wanted to make when I make him but just got started finally on him.

But anyways I wanted to make an updated dread for 4th addition.
Could be a nice Venerable Dread.
Or atleast he goes well with the new vets.
Still working on him just tired and done for tonight.

What do you think of the idea and of what you can see?
Weapons not glued and head can be traded out and the emblem behind the head is very nice.

Here you go?


Another look at him

As you can see I was thinking of the Forge World Dreads and how to make them without spending all that cash so one dread and one marine chest plate later and you have a similiar dread to forge worlds.

I just went to far with an open faced helmet I will be putting my goggles on him like from my terminator post everyone just trips out when I show them those on marine stuff.

Thanks.

The head should have more bionics (probably as the person in the dread was so horribly damaged so it seems hard to belive that he will have so undamaged head.

If you plan to paint the head as if it's part of the metal exoskeletan, that's a d*mn good conversion. If you plan to paint the head fleshy ... chances are he's in too bad a state to manage that, so I wouldn't advise it ...

THanks guys good stuff I was going with the ability to remove the head and swap it in and out for others.

I like the idea of a Zombie head to show how half dead he is?

I also like the Iron Hands mechanical head.

And a normal head you saw and the Desert eagles helmet is on know.

And i was thinking of the Door gunner head for the Valkyrie he has a air breather and the goggles so he goes with my desert eagles but also has the air mask for a half dead person he needs it.

Good stuff thanks guys for the input.

I would probably use Iron hands head or meybe on of the special character chaplains have head that look like head with part of the flesh.

Or meybe necron head?

+++Zombie head might end up looking too Nurglesque for one of the Emperor's finest, I'd go with the Iron Hands one. The conversion is very nice, I can't actually see what the head on there is atm though!+++

+++4[sup]th[/sup] Addition? Sounds like maths to me :P+++

I used a zombie head for my dread conversion - I don't think he turned out too nurglish looking:

Painted in Sacophagus:

Unpainted and blurry :P

Painted full front shot:

I'm not sure I like the idea of using the marine chest piece for the front of the sarcophagus - other then that I really like it a LOT!!!

Wow that turned out simpley amazing great job

The chest plate was to tie him into my Desert Eagles army.
But ya it is kinda weird?

But thanks for the input and thanks for showing your work very nice.
