"Even when mortally wounded and incarcerated in the adamantium sarcophagus of a Dreadnought, a Blood Angel still lusts for battle and the chance to prove his honor." -Codex Blood Angels
The Furioso Dreadnought is my favorite of all the Dreadnought configurations available to any Space Marine chapter. This particular Furioso is a conversion from the Assault on Black Reach Dreadnought (a Multi-Melta Variant).
Two Dreadnought Close Combat Weapons is excellent. The Death Company upgrade is a must. The extra attacks makes the Dreadnought a real home-wrecker.
I have read some people on the forum Dakkadakka.com agreeing that the Furioso Dreadnought is useless without a Drop Pod. However, I could not disagree more. I have had no difficulty using my Dreadnought without a Drop Pod. He always finds something get his DCCW's into.
Since he is Death Company, he requires a chaplain or Corbulo. I, of course, use Corbulo. If Corbulo and Dante are within twelve inches of the Furioso, then he is benefiting from both Preferred Enemy and Furious Charge. Try seven CC attacks at Strength ten, initiative five, rerolling missed hits. A lethal combination.
