Add some extended Armour with Aicd-Battledamage. Then put death Nidīs under his feed (Stomping = fine). Maybe you can put some hid on the back of the Dread. Like they jumped on him ;)

Add some battle damage to it like acid burns and claw marks. And how about puting some severed nid limbs to it using chain. Or for a pose Idea it could be stamping on a nid mmmmm squashy


Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

Have a Gaunt or Warrior cringing, and have the Dreadnought in a 'Dirty Harry' pose. Deus Fielus Luckus, Punkus?

My friend made a Black Templar Dreadnought having a Genestealer being crushed in its CCW, he sucks at modelling but still a cool idea.

Tyranid bits sticking out a broken claw wedge into a crevice.
worms trying to burrow into the metal?
Ichor.

One tyrandis in the claw, maybe one 1" away getting chewed to bits by rending...but thats more of a dyarama.

Yeah, well the Space Marines never dropped forty thousand feet in a drop pod WITHOUT power armor.

hehe i would like to be able play with it too

i think i will go for the acid attack (melting marks or whatever).
i will have a couple of rippers on the ground (one of them will be squashed).
but when it comes to the attacking nid, i dont know how to pose it right, the nid in the claw is a cruel idea, but that will have to wait for another dread.


right knnow im reading, exams (SUCKS) so in a week when those are done with, ill begin my quest.
