Finally found time to finish the second Dread....























As you can see, I opted for a double plasma cannon option for the right arm.
Not 'legal'??
Dunno, really, but who cares if you don't ever intend to use it for gaming?

It's done!  :D

Awesome work! The sculpting and painting really ties it in with the rest of the force.  8)

And even though many of my own projects will probably also never be used in a game, I do try to keep them 'legal'. You know; just in case...  ::)

Excellent stuff

Just rember, that one versions legal can (and often does) becomes illegal in the latest uber-new version, so who cares says I  lol

Lovely, lovely Space Sharks 🦈

Very true ::) So a little caveat is in order here then; I tend to make my armies 'legal' under the rules from when the army was current, and also which rules from the period I liked best ;)

Thanks, chaps.
Much appreciated.
 :)

As for 'legal' thing: I gave up having any interest in actually playing 40K a long time ago (I think I played one game of 4th edition...) and one of the reasons was the rule changing/power creep/need to buy so many books etc.
I have still kept the army fairly close fluff-wise and have used the background in the Robbie MacNiven novels as the basis.
Their rather unusual supply methods allow me to add weird and unusual stuff when it suits me.

Just the standard bearer to finish off and then there are just the Techmarines and that is the infantry done.
Of course, there is the small matter of the Captain himself but I still have not decided fully on where to go with him....

Cheers, mate.

Having finally finished the Company Standard Bearer the Ninth Company now numbers a hundred infantry and two Dreads.
This picture also illustrates well just how big these Dreadnoughts really are!
