Default Dread Auto cannon and Assault cannon?

I was reading my codex last nite and it looked like from what I was reading you can put a assault cannon and a twin linked autocannon on a dreadnought. How would you go about representing this on your model?

...by putting an assault cannon and twin-linked autocannon on it...

Make a twin-linked autocannon.

I should say has anyone fielded this and how did they represent it.

Either
A: Buy autocannon from forgeworld (at bottom of page) for Your dread, or
B: Buy spare arm for dread, and 2 autocannons and convert them onto the arm.

Very cool, and they make them for both arms! Thanks didn't know these were out there!

It comes from the old Dark Angels Mortis pattern Dreadnoughts, which had matching arms.

Yep, the double auto-cannon dread (aka flak turret) was great for bringing down skimmers because it had 4 twin linked shots.

Forgeworld is the only place I know of that you can get a replacement autocannon for your CCW/Rocket Launcher arm.

Personally i would go with a Plasma Cannon TL Auto cannon dread... Maximum anti heavy infantry/ light vehicle... Very tasty.

Aegis defense line.

I've heard of people using the tl-autocannons from that on their dreads. They certainly look like they'd fit without too much work.

In game terms, 2x tl-autocannon (aka "Rifleman") dreads are fairly popular. 4 twin-linked S7 shots are nothing to scoff at versus light transports and things like guard heavy weapon teams.

Yeah, looking at what I can equip them with that is what I am going to do, I usually bring a Dread with a Las + Missile. The Plasma + Autocannon seems it would be the best option for nids. I am still going to get Autocannons for both sides as well for all my Dreads, it will be cool to do because its different and I will be able to test out all the various weapon loadouts to see wich I like best.
