Speedpainting Space Marines #12 - Dreadnought, Dreadnoughter, Dreadnoughtest

Hey guys,

A friend of mine recently drew my attention to an ebay auction for 2 "Assault on Black Reach"-Dreads, which were going for an extremely good price and so I couldn't resist.

I also recently bought the Blood Angels Codex, because I did not own any up to date Codex for my Space Marine army and decided that playing my custom Chapter "The Caliphate" as Blood Angels may be a little more interesting that going with the "vanilla" marines.

Plus, I have always wanted a dead cool Furioso Dreadnought stomping around at my command :)

Here I saw a chance to convert at least one of these machines from a standard issue "Assault on Black Reach"-Dread, by ordering a separate RIGHT powerfist arm from Bitzbox and replacing the "hand" with the one from the second dreadnought.

Without further ado, my PLASTIC Furioso Dreadnought (converted) and my "Tank Hunter" Dread with lascannon and missile launcher.


The banner poles were made from toothpicks. The banners can be printed out here.

All three dreads!
