Default Yo! Check it out! I'm making progress!

So as some of you know i have a crackpot idea for making a dreadnaught/alien hybrid. Well it's almost done. I need to paint it and wait a base and the close combat arm (the new DP right arm) and convert that out. I digress, here are some pictures of how far it is. Right now i have the TL heavy bolter/ TL lascannon arm on. I can pop that off and put on the plasma cannon, and i'm going to make the DCCW removable. I am aware that the scale is off but it's a monstrosity. I hand made the tale with 2 part epoxy. I was going to paint the head either in classic xeno colors or i was going to make it look like an alien skeleton, any comments or suggestions would be awesome!

Looks pretty cool. I'm not too about the tail like thing out the back. If it is a tail it way too bulky and thick and kinda makes the model look seriously unbalanced. However the head and overall look of the dread is pretty class :D

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

it must have just grown on me but looking back at it in real life vs. in photos. It looks better IRL but it's still a bit big. It actually makes the model more stable and less likely to topple over till i get a base for it.

That's an awe-inspiring conversion Woog, credit to you for the idea and execution.

I'm sorry, but this is just too awsome. Have some rep!


If someone lacks intelligence, than he is not stupid, because one cannot be stupid without intelligence.

thank you both! I was beginning to get the impression that no one really liked due to the lack of reaction do it on the thread. I'll post some new ones once i either start painting or finish converting the Daemon arm to look like it's busting through metal like the head. Whenever it finally gets here from Bits and Kits (not his fault. International shipping sucks)

I like it. While the tail is a little big I do think it is necessary to balance (quite literally I hear) out the head. If there was just this massive head it would look weird. Looks like you were inspired by the deamon/dreadnought from the 4th ed CSM codex. I'd like to see this baby painted up and finished. What are its plans? Are you going for the alien colours from the film (ie oil slick black)? +rep

Also, where is the head from?

I like the Dreadnought but I'm not sure the tail adds anything (other than ballast) to the mini.

Great concept though!
