Grey Knights Dreadknight Conversion WIP

by Spack on Fri Apr 15, 2011 7:43 pm

While I like the concept of the Dreadknight, and at first I didn't mind the terminator harnessed on the front, I've slowly realised that I don't like the terminator or the exposed exo-skeleton pistons on the arms. I also wanted to adjust the position of the legs so that it doesn't look quite so static. Today I found myself with a bit of spare time and decided to have a crack at it.

The legs were built pretty much as stock, although the front armour above the toe was left off (this will be used on the thighs to help fill in the gaps left by the missing terminator legs). The back hoses at the top which connect to the hip piece were clipped off as they would need adjusting when the legs were posed, and the rear toe was trimmed down a little to allow the front ankle to rotate far enough to move the front leg forward. Next the blocks at the top of the legs were snipped off and glued into the hip piece, and then the tops of the legs glued to them, and glue added to the ankles. The legs were...

Grey Knights Dreadknight Conversion WIP Part 2

One day on and I decided I didn't like my first attempt at the Dreadnought style torso. After grabbing my FW MKIV GK Dreadnought and putting it side-by-side with the Dreadknight I realised that the "sarcophogus" was too small. So with my trusty Oyumaru thermosetting plastic I set out to replicate the FW Dreadnought torso onto the Dreadknight. After 3 failed attempts (not enough GS the first time, too much the second, knocked it while setting for the third and distorted it badly, grr!) I now have a torso I'm happy with.

The armour panels were pressed separately to make it easier to mount to the body.

Grey Knights Dreadknight Conversion WIP Part 3

I just couldn't leave it alone again. This time I decided that the shoulders needed a little something, and I ended up adding some pauldrons.

Other than magnetising the weapons the Dreadknight is (at least for the moment!) complete.
