simply pin the weapons but DONT glue them, that should be fine if the weapons arnt very sturdy get the trusty BLUETAC out and use a bit of that.

I'd be the first to say I'm not a fan of the metal venerable dreadnought. It's mostly the exposed pilot's head and the five fingered claw-- the rest of it is fine. If you could put a proper helmet over the Mk IV power armour helmet that's showing on it like the Forge World ones, and replace the five fingered claw bit with a different claw or a blade, then it'd be a cool model.

But, that really wasn't the point of the question, I guess. As stated, the venerable dreadnought comes with an assault cannon and power fist that have been sculpted particularly for that metal chassis, and even the standard dreadnought arms don't really look right on it, in my opinion.

In response to the most recent question, though-- GW's pin vice should drill through the pewter just fine, as long as you're careful. The drill bits are very...breaky, in my experience. I've started buying drill bits at the hardware store in bulk because I break the stupid things so much.

If it's a friendly game, just buy a normal dreadnought; give it some fancy wargear/purity seals/paint job, and call it a venerable dread.

If you give it enough of the above things it will probably also work in a competitive game.

I have only played friendly games so far so I just use my normal dread as a venerable dread.

It works in competitive circles as well-- Venerable dreadnoughts have been around long before they ever made a model for them. As long as it looks suitably decked out in the Chapter's heraldry, purity seals, and whatnot, tournament judges would be sorely out of line to call it not modelled correctly/appropriately.
