    How are people making Psyrifle Dreads?

    I (like most people I think) am planning on using 2 Psyfle Dreads in my army because they are just that awesome. I cant find any way of physically making the models though without a bunch of conversion (which isn't something I'm overly interested in). The GW Dreadnought kits dont come with left arm Autocannons. You can buy right arm Autocannons from Forgeworld, but again they dont sell left arm ones. I cant find any way of getting a left arm Autocannon (apart from turning a right arm one upside down, but that looks stupid).

    What I'm doing is buying the aegis scenery set from GW. Each aegis kit has two Autocannons. One aegis kit per dread. Expensive, but SUPER easy...

    By the god-emperor, the last thread on this is still on the first page. Specifically, Here

    Here's a couple of pictures of my converted psyfleman dreads. I use magnets and the twin-autocannons of the leman russ exterminators.



    Before I painted them.



    After I repainted them.

    Cheap and simple. I still need to convert some more. My goal is 6 dreads.

    To be fair dude, the topic title of 'Tlac' doesn't exactly scream 'How are people making their TL-Autocannon Dreadnoughts'. If anyone skimmed over the topics looking for one on this subject, nobody would see 'Tlac' and think "Ah, there it is!".

    Yeah, I missed that thread initially and posted here first.

    Yeah, and that Tlac thread doesnt even show up in a search for "Twin Linked Autocannon" since even in the thread it is only referred to as Tlac.

    Sometimes Acronyms are a bad thing if the people you are trying to converse with dont know what it means. Just take the extra second to type it out.

    With regards to the topic at hand though, Jy2's riflemen dreads are easy to do and WYSIWYG. I also really like the one made with the defilers reaper autocannons referred to in the aforementioned Tlac thread.
