Dude, I'm a marine player and I can say, that dread looks too overpowered...

It's not overpowered. It looks beyond badass, but it has a rough time with heavily armored targets until it gets within stabbing range.

Looks nice.
In the new codex the IronClad dread can be given 2 hunter killer missles and I guess that arm in the first photo is the Ironclad assault launchers

I'm not all that impressed, though I don't hate it. It doesn't really seem like it has more armour than a normal dread, only more weapons.

I don't like the CCWs. Imperial dreads somehow seem to always have pretty harmless looking weapon arms. Bjorn had a reasonably good claw and the FW rock drill is cool, but otherwise it looks like the thing wouldn't be able to grip anything much at all.

What's with the arm with 4 dildos and a flame thrower on it? I can think of no practical use for this weapon combo. I guess I'd start running if I saw a guy with one of these coming towards me.

yea the Ironclad assault launcher (dildo thing) is pretty pointless all it does is give you offence and defensive nades.

Honestly I think it looks like crap. I think GW is trying to hard to come up with interesting units for there bread and butter (space marines) and this one just fell kinda flat. Interesting in theory but then again everything looks good on paper. I would rather build my own out of a normal dread.

Wow, that photo looks like an ad from the mining equipment mags i was reading when i was working this summer. Gw should take some more inspiration from that kind of stuff, because a lot of it looks terrifying.

I think it looks good, but it doesn't keep in GW's normal style.

The OTT look reminds me more of Privateer Press's mini's.

I like the Frag launchers on front but that's about it. If I were to build an Ironclad, I'd probably just covert the existing Dread model and add parts from this new kit. It just looks too toyish in my opinion.
