"Adeptus Mechanicus" (Blood Angels)
 
Let me start with, I am a huge fan of Dreadnoughts. They are fantastic units in my opinion, and are great benefits to the armies they have been joined with.

And then, the dream came true and the Blood Angels had allowed Dreads as a TROOP CHOICE!

So, I immediately set forth the pen and paper, to build myself a list. My friends and I all play 2500 point games, so came up w/ a 11 Dread, 2500 point list.

It was a challenge, but dang it was fun. So now, I have a list.

Then I got a bit of help - and started with this!

First things first: Had to make some Servitor heads (I feel an apt replacement for Death Company. Mindlessly walking towards the nearest target and gun it down.) List calls for them to trade in their pistol for proper Bolters. (why will be explained later)

interesting concept, a 11 dreadnought list is cool. Some forseeable problems is HQ, and im fairly sure Blood angels can't take techmarines as HQ so im interested in what you will make.

Well, despite the lack of Techmarines- I did what I could.

I went with Tycho - cause he too can 'go' DC, but also cause he has Specialty Ammo. Has a greater AdMech feel to him, cause of that. Plus, he extends that to the servitors - letting the whole 25 man blob get variable weapons.

This sounds really awesome. What's the entire army list going to be?

Sure!

HQ: Captain Tycho (probably Death Company version)
* He is here for his Special Issue Ammo choices.

Troops:
Death Company:
x24 Death Company w/ Bolter & Chainsword
x1 Death Company w/ Bolter & Power Weapon

x5 Death Company Dreadnought
w/ Blood Talons (Melta Gun / Heavy Flamer) & Magna Grapples
+ Drop Pod

Heavy:
x3 Dreadnought w/ x2 Twin Autocannons

Elite
x3 Furioso Librarians
(All w/ Wings of Sang -
1 w/ Sanguine Sword, Unleash Rage, Might of Heroes)

2500 on the nose =D

And now, MORE WORK!

Here is the Scupt WIP pics for the "Tech Magos" - which is also the HQ.

I decided to do the "Dead Mans Hand" powerfist a little differently - so here I have the power arcing from thumb and fingers.

Because I care.

Instead of doing a Combi-Melta, I decided to do a Servo-Harness kind of thing w/ a Bolter and Melta.

Your GS skillz make me want to sob and never mix blue and yellow putty again...

A cool idea and some incredible GS work to start it out.

Your a Green Stuff Master! Also commenting on the list, never take blood talons AND magna grapples, you don't have the strength to kill tanks with talons, so if you want magna grapples take DCCW's (Fists)

Still gotta get the servo-rig painted up, but that should be done soon.

More to come.

Also: I cannot claim all the credit for this project. While I did build the list, and came up w/ the conversion idea, and am funding this whole thing - i have been getting a lot of help from my friend Alex. Just giving credit where it is due.
