Ok my planning for this behemoth was that when he was a Marine he was a big Devastator Guy, and after being intered into a Dradnought he wanted a bit more....... fire power. So they gave it to him.
Hope you enjoy.

Looking good, however I don't like the way he is slanted on his base. He's just looking in the air at something.. :wink:

The Concept for my guys is the more gold you have on you the Older and wiser you are, and if you have Silver and gold armour then your are really Special :p

But no I don't have any rules in mind as of yet but I might make some up. Did you have anything in mind?

Interesting concept. Is it just for the look or do you have rules in mind?

I am not sure about the lots of gold look; it is well applied but appears a little garish to me.
I agree. He looks a bit like the 'pimp my dread' team got hold of him :grin:

Some freehand script and purity seals would probably help break it up a bit.

Cool idea though!

Hahahahahaha I really want to suggest a "Pimp my dread" competition now with Fluorescent paintwork and blue underlighting. Finished with the finest chavvy decals from the Imperial sports-forges...

nice idea, will you be making your own rules for him?

it may just be the pictures but the paint already on the model look a bit thick, you could maybe try thinning your paints with water

+rep for the idea

cheers

Thanks for the rep Edd, it probably seems thick because I needed like four layers of GOld just to get a good coat.

I can see how that would work.

I had the same problem with gold.

Have you tried using a brown base coat lightly over-brushed with Tin Bitz? I find it needs fewer layers than straight black.

Hmmm.. not sure.

Fluff-wise, given the other variants, a Heavy Support Dreadnought seems like a reasonable thing for SM to have.

Rules-wise it is most similar to a Defiler: you could say that instead of Daemonic possession it has enhanced recoil suppression around the casket for the same effect.

Alternatively, you could use it as a counts-as predator.

My third thought is to borrow from Obliterators and say it has many weapons but only has the power to fire some of them each turn; maybe represent this by adding some points to the base value and buying more than one weapon per arm.

Are you talking about the base he was on in the first Pics? Thats just a floor pannel from the Imperial Sector Kit.

If he's a devistator kinda dred, why would he waist his time with a CC weapon?

Why would a devastator Sergeant have a Chainsword? He would have it so that if he got attacked by something like orks or Tyranids he could fend them off.

He's gotta have something to do, no one will give him a HW to shoot so he's got time to kill. Besides if someone assaults a Devistator Dred, the dred cuold just kick them, you'r still talking about a S6 kick or head butt. Devistators are not ment to get into CC, I would imagine the Chainsword is really just standard Equipment for all Sergents.

I don't have a left arm weapon, I might get one from forge world and use that though. Maybe an assault Cannon.
