Making the Old Chaos Dreadnought better.

I've converted my old metal Chaos Dread to look more like this.

Here is a WIP of the converted mini.

Making Obliterators better

I always liked the Obliterator concepts put forth by the GW design staff, but think the execution of the minis is really poor. Both stock models look like they are crouching behind a bush taking a potty break.

I rate them an A- on concept and a D- on execution. I've seen some nice Oblits made from termies but it just didn't do it for me. I really like the massive frame of them in the original concept.

After seeing The Dark Apostle's Oblits that he stood upright ages ago on the Bolter and Chainsword, I knew I wanted to do the same thing. Then I wandered away from 40K for a while and my whole Chaos army sat collecting dust. As fortune would have it when I make my return to 40K just as TDA finished a tutorial for making upright Oblits. This was exactly the fuel I needed.

So here is the first completed Obliterator!


I have just started a second Obliterator.
