    forgeworld venerable dreads?

    Hey all, not sure if this is in the right place so if not i apologise. Im looking to pick up a venerable dreadnought for my Black Templar army. Im considering picking up the forgeworld model because well its gorgeous. What im curious about is do the arms from the GW dreads fit on the models, or do only the forgeworld sold arms fit? And whats your overall opinion of the models? are they your the cost in your opinion?

    I'm pretty sure they do fit. I've seen Forge World Dreads with Plasti carms so they they must fit. If they're to big it wouldn't take an epic amount of effort to file them down so they do fit.

    The problem I'd have with using plastic arms on the Forge world dread, especially the Templars one, is that the Dreads are festooned with bits and bobs, heraldry, shields, skulls where as the arms have got nothing on them. As long as you sorted that out they'd be alright, otherwise they'll be out of place.

    I just tested it on my Ultramarines one and the plastic arms fit just fine, but I recommend getting the Forge World arms anyway. They look so much better than the plain old plastic bits and compared to the cost of the body they're quite cheap. They just don't look right with the plastic arms.

    I have the Chaplain Dread and I magnetized his sides, so I can switch weapons, It works fine size wise with the regular dread weapons for me, only thing is, as mentioned, that you might wanna add some little extras to them for the looks.
