Looks good...any chance of a comparison shot with a standard dread?

Nice, looks good. How have you done it? From the looks I would guess you used a standard dread body and stuck some elongated legs on. Either way I like how it looks more like a mechanised marine then a block of metal that the original is.
And of course the skull is awesome.

The top of the legs were made from sentinel multilasers and a chaos panel from the Chaos vehicle sprue. but the whole hip joints were widened and reinforced while the torso was bulked out with greenstuff fur and the dragon head with slave giant collar was added the double gun was also made from multilasers and i covered over bits that didn't look as good as i wanted with cloaks, skuls and other gubbins. Loyalist I dont have a standard dread at the moment would a rhino help for comparison?

That is cool. I have always disliked the shortness of Dreads.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

That is very very good. Pity the last pic is a bit fuzzy. That skull sets the whole mini off.

I'll get some more done soon the skull is from the giant kit its 2 ends of the dragon club stuck together with the bottom having the eye and horns cut away. I'll try and find an unpainted piece.
