Hey all, I am new to chaos and am currently building my army. I am not interested in using Dreadnoughts as gun mounts but I am intrigued by one with 2 Dreadnought Close Combat weapons. I was wonder A) are they effective (I would be deep striking them with teleport homers) and How do you convert them? That's all, thanks.
They won't be very effective as you can't deep strike Chaos dreads.
not quite true onodera.
admittedly two ccw dread would be of limited use due to the problem of getting to the ccw phase and enemy unit without being destroyed. but imagine if it rolled a blood frenzy roll near an enemy unit. could be nasty then with the bonus it gets it could shred a unit easily.
now just getting it intact to an enemy unit..........
how about hiding behind a statured lord
The only way to properly use a 2x DCCW Dread is by having it Dedicated to Khorne and with either Extra Armour or Daemonic Possession. Extra Armour gets you to combat a bit quicker and is cheaper than DP, but Daemonic Possession makes sure you always have your full amount of attacks once there. But you must take one or the other.
Other good upgrades include Smoke Launchers and Mutated Hull. MH makes it quite expensive, however.
As mentioned, you can't Deep Strike Chaos Dreads. We don't make use of Drop Pods, unless you're talking about Forge World Dreadclaws.
As for converting, most people go to Forge World and buy the arms.
Dread, 2 ccw's, Extra Armour, Destroyer, Smoke Launchers.123
This can move bu not shoot if stunned or shaken adn with bolters you dont need to shoot. Destroyer allows you to frenzy on one or two and smoke Launchers gives it one turn of living and this thing is cheap.
I always use this in my Khorne lsits and they are very effective.
This is just an idea but if you can get the living weapons from the chaos defiler and use the autocannon arm just cut down the barrels and slap on the living weapon parts where you cut down the barrels alittle green stuff and voila! it will look like your dread is reaching out with a larger scourage whip and if you use the chaos model you get the mini scourage whip or the claw... but just a baisic idea.
Thats a brilliant idea. Ive always had problems on thinking of how to do this and hopefully when they bring out the new CSM dread it will have 2 arms.
Its just brilliant.
