Default Deff dread, how to arm them....

Like the topic says. I can't make up my mind - 2 additional close combat arms or a close combat arm and a scorcha. Or are there some other combo I'm overlooking - keeping in mind there less then great BS ( OK, i know there orks : )

I would say 3 and a skorcha.

This is due to the fact that the skorcha can soften up the squad you are about to assault and with some luck will kill more than 1 more attack in CC. Against IG and Tau the skorcha really comes into to its own when it allows no saves to their troops >.

Generally people will go for 4 DCCWs, 3 and a skorcha or 2 and 2 skorchas.

It really depends on what you plan to be doing with your dread, will he just rush into the nearest combat or will he focus on tanks, infantry ect.
I'd tend to either give him a ranged weapon or two or something else to fix him if he gets immobilised which would be a problem for a 4 DCCW dread with nothing else. Grot riggers could help for example.

One idea I've had is to give a dread two KMBs, for the lols obviously but it could be quite effective given OK dice rolls.

I was planning to stick the KMB on my cans > .

As for the dread, looks like it will be 3 CC arms, a skorcha and some riggers... GW should make some models for those, similar to the ones that come with the stompa. 8)

I think Skorchas are the best due to the fact you're not gonna rely on Orky BS. If you already got enough flame weapons, go ahead, arm it with DCCW.
