Did I Mention I Like Dreadnoughts?

I am totally going to use my love of Dreads as an excuse for being a cheesy bastard. I am planning to run three Grey Knights Dreadnoughts. 

So I bought one of the Forge World Grey Knights dread, and then bought the body for a second dread. Then I bought a Venerable Dreadnought because I thought I could make him look like a Grey Knight dread without too much trouble.

Now on to the bad part. I am going to make these all twin-linked autocannon dreads. So I bought three sets of Forge World autocannon arms, and as you may be able to see, they are pretty badly bent. I have seen a lot of posts on the web of how to deal with this. I am going to get some tongs and dip the barrels into some boiling water for about 7 seconds then then try to bend them.

I am a little bit worried about getting them straight so wish me luck.

Just to end, here is a picture of the twin-linked autocannon arms I bought from Forge World the same time I bought my Space Wolf dread, and they don't seem bent badly at all. Weird.


  1. Good luck!

    Now mortally wound some marines and stick them in!

  2. Heh, I wish my Landraider doors were only that bad. Not entirely sure you need actually boiling water, but it will likely get the job done.
