I made this Furioso Dreadnought out of two Assault on Black Reach plastic dreads and two Imperial Guard flamer arms from the Cadian sprue.
I added some skeleton parts from an old box of skeletal warriors.
I was quite pleased with how the Dreadnought turned out.
As I only used the Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon from the second AoBR Dreadnought, I have most of a plastic dread remaining. He is waiting for the time when I decide to reconstruct his arm in a suitable fashion.
I absolutely love the Furioso Dreadnought. When I decided to field one, I called GW to order one. It was out of stock. They told me it could take 4 weeks to re-stock.
Well, I simply could not wait that long. And so the motivation and inspiration to convert my two Multimelta/DCCW dreads into one Furioso was born.
Now that I have decided to re-base the entire army with the CD Plastic Urban Base, I am thinking of what to do with the dread's giant base. There is a lot of space with which to work. So, I can make this one really good, or quite detailed.
I must say that I enjoy doing a little extra bit of modeling or converting to make my models unique. It really doesn't take that much to add some character and uniqueness. A head swap here, an arm repositioned there. Throw in a kitbash and a heavy conversion, and you have a great looking army.
