40K Chaos Dreadnought
« on: September 15, 2009, 07:53:22 AM »

My girlfriend decided to jump into 40K with a Chaos Space Marine army, she spent the whole weekend assembling a Chaos Defiler and looking greedily to my Space Marine Dreadnoughts... so I've built for her a Chaos Dreadnought from a Sentinel I had assembled and lying forgotten, bits (mainly a twin-linked Land raider lascannon), plasticard and left overs from her Chaos sprues... it was that or my SM army will slowly convert into Chaos XD

Here are the pictures:



Too bad she does not like Nurgle...

Great work Andres :)  What is the white that you have mounted the plastic bits on? plasticard?

Nice work Andres. :occasion14: Any pics of the defiler?

I've been reading some of the novels and it's too bad they don't make more of the characters from their own stories.

So this is the Defiler:



She's very new at the hobby, only some Warmachine models under her belt... I tried to warn her about the perils of 40K... now she has 2500 pts of CSM to assemble :P

It does become an addiction. Has she joined the forum? If not, see if she wants to come and share in our collective madness. Looks like she did a good job on the model. Does she paint also?

Looks like she's already gone some painting skills to build from, Andres! :)

Well she is very enthusiastic and really like the things related to painting... she got a wet palette from P3 and things like that just to try them...

In the meantime more pictures of the Chaos Dread:

Assembled!

Needs detailing and talons... sadly I got some backlog of miniatures I need to paint as a commission so I will froze this for a couple of weeks to start getting money...

The thing is I get easily distracted... and since the model was out of my sight, out of my mind I stopped working on it... but this sunday I was planning to teach my GF how to play (and probably losing, for my sanity's sake :P ) but ended up giving the finishing touches to the dread (including a tail).

So it's finally done and probably has more possibilities to see paint since I'm not the one that will be applying colours to it XD











I really liked this project... I'm interested in building another just to fix some issues I had when started, but there is no way can justify a second dreadnought...
