Has anyone else done this? You legally can exchange the gun with another CCW. Four twin-linked bolters and four attacks is good in my opinion, whats your take?

Sounds good but i cant leave the plasma cannon behind, my personal marine smoosher.
They're not really lost and damned. They just can't find their way home!
Dreadnoughts are the mighty smiters of Space Marines. They need to be able to smite them from afar, and in CC. So, one CCW and one Heavy Plasgun is always good. Smite then, oh mighty Smiter!
i think deradnoughts with 2 ccw is cool. very pwerful in cc
Well you can't charge if you fire twin-linked bolters, since they're rapid-fire, so you'd probably only get one set of shots off, assuming you try to move into CC.
A dreadnaught walks 6" a turn, is a vehicle and thus can be picked out, and has only 12 for it's main armor. While it can do some damage in CC, it's just too easily destroyed with anti-tank weapons.
The only time dreadnaughts get really good in CC is in Dawn of War.

Heres what I do for 'Nought attack.
Have one as a fire magnet. Don't beard it. At all. It's meant to die.
Have another going off to kill stuff.
If the first one gets to CC, gratz. It's gunna go mental.
'And Lo! In A Cloud Of Much Prettiness And All That,
Came Karnack! And Let It Be Known That He Said;
Don't forget that you can always change a twin-linked bolter to a heavy flamer.

If i were a chaos player, i would personally be fond of two close combat weapons rather than one big gun and a close combat weapon. Going fire frenzy with a lascannon/plasma cannon and hitting your own units is not a nice thing.
I don't think that the rapidfire rules apply to a dreadnaught as the rules also state that can't assault after firing a heavy weapon and the dreadnaugth is allowed to do this as it "always counts as stationary"
Unless you've got a Dreadclaw Drop Pod for it, forget all out CC, you'll get shot down faster than you can say "Deathtothefalsemperor." Balance is good. Against horde armies I go all out shooty, though, for the sake of hurling 6 templates into that swarm of Gaunts on a fire frenzy.
