Default WIP Dreadnought....

Well... after I read an article on the net, I wanted to do an own dread to my chaos chapter I'm building on. I wanted it to look kinda undivided. But it looks more and more like something from "nurgle"
Well its not quite done yet. Still got allot more to do, and I'm running out of green stuff=/ C&C are welcome. even some tips:

Well... its a converted Plasma cannon and the original Dread fist. And now its done..
Enjoy the pics.. C&C are most welcome... maybe some name suggestion?!

I'm thinking of painting the tentacles white, whit some dark purple in the deep areas and doing some gloss so that its looks a bit wet or something.... An other idee is to paint it so it looks like green glow from the ground:P

That is one awesome conversion! And a plus side to that model (game wise) is that you will almost always have line of sight . Just kidding :P.

Anyways... Great GS work, can't wait to see it painted, I would go with the green, white reminds me of Tyranids :-\.

Impressive work. I see all the nurgle bits, but the long tail it's mounted on and the claws make me think of nids, particularly the ravener. So you could call it the ravenought.

Actually, yeah, it does look a bit like a ravener. Good eye.

The conversion is looking very nice. I have my doubt about how it will move around the battlefield 'in real life', but that shouldn't stop anyone from making a nice conversion.

Well done. I am curious for the next set of pictures.

well done man, nice GS work. The idea behind it is cool, and the way you made it is even better.

Kudos

Very impressive conversion you have there.

Do you mind if I steal the idea? I could do with a slaaneshi dreadnaught: just take this add a few more tentecles and the female repentia engine pilot instead of the skulls.

Again - very impressive.

May I ask what did you do to support it?
