Default New Achillus Dreadnought

Hey everyone just got the new custodes dreadnought after preordering it and got to work. I will say this kit is beautiful and great fun to work with. I magnetized one arm to show a closed fist like he's firing in the air and another hand holding a poor legionary in the air. Which legion the poor guy will be a part of is still in the air. Let me know what you all think.

Personally I'd leave out the legionary, as I think it takes away from such a beautiful miniature, as part of a diorama it would be grand, but for a playable piece I'd leave him by himself or have the legionary lying on the base

Thanks for the comment! And yeah I'd agree for sure. I don't actually play thit game I just read the books and build/paint the models so this will more than likely go into a diorama with the custodes squad. I just have to figure out next what I want the diorama to look like.

I agree with the Old Man, the legionary takes away some of the attention from the model itself. The Achillus Dreadnought is such a beautiful model that I personally wouldn't want to take any steps to diminish the attention. Putting the legionary on the base is another matter
