Interesting take on dreadnoughts, beautifully excecuted :D
Rust and bleach effects really show that this monster have some history and adds a great chronologic aspect to the model!

takk for the well considered critique. All my marine models are weathered, I like the effect.

Where did the Jet pack come from, I am thinking of doing a similar but using a Whirl wind launcher on the back as a cyclone. Love the style tho :D

Thanks, I do wish dreads could Deepstrike without a drop pod, I like to keep my army to one army box and drop pods are huge! :(

Thanks, the arms are Dreadnought legs, the legs are from IG Sentinels, the armour is mostly scratch built from plasticard, but the the leg plates are from an old Warlord titan.

it was built quite a long time ago (the dreadnought parts are metal, makes it VERY top heavy!) so I couldn't tell you exactly, but probably not longer than 5-6 hours work on the whole thing.

sorry to bust your bubble pal. seems a new model by forgeworld ripped your name. the idea's stil la cool original though

I know, shame they didn't take the idea too! Both are actually named after a dreadnought pattern from 1st edition 40K, an assault variant with built in jump-jets, so mine's more faithful to the original ;-)

a most aesthetic model. congrats!

i stumbled upon this pic of yours while searching for references for my 3d model and i decided to make mine kinda like this, if you don't mind... :D

well, i'm working on a Noise Marine Dreadnought, post-heresy-ish, not the infested kind or something, i'll just keep it simple

i love the thing with the legs in the back, but i'm wondering about the ballance...is that counter-weight on his back?
Reply
:icondukeleto:
dukeleto Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
they're jump-jets, but yeah, in model-making terms, they serve as a counterbalance. This one was actually made with a lot of metal dreadnought parts, with newer plastic ones, it'd be much easier to balance.

Sweet! i'm really interested i'm making models as close as possible to what would be needed for them to function in the real world :P

Oh god is that a jump pack? Don't let the Blood Angels see this thing. They'll want to loot it for themselves! D:

yeah jump jets :-D
Funnily enough I conceived the idea as a Blood Angels variant. [link]
In first edition there WAS a dreadnought with jump pack, that's where the name comes from.
