Hey guys wasup I'm new to deamonhunters and this forum, though i've posted once or twice. After gazing at the ridiculous forgeworld grey knights dreadnaught close combat arm, i have some questions for you guys. Does everyone think the incinerator is worth it on the dread? also what does everyone like for the right arm? i was looking for a weapon that could work for both anti tank and infantry, and thought plasma cannon?

Hey man, nice to meet ya. From what I have heard and seen the twin-linked lascannon seems to be the best bet for good anti-vehicle support on the dread. I noticed that they also have a psycannon right arm for the dread as well at Forgeworld. That might be kind of interesting to use...but don't think it's up to par with the twin-linked las cannon.
I like the incinerator for an all-around dread. Take the t/l lascannon for the big stuff (tanks, hivetyrants, etc.) and then keep the close combat arm and incin. You can torch "hordes" like orcs with the incin, and ap 4 (with no invulnerable saves) really does kick ass (lets rember that not EVERY army is in power armor). If youre not going agaist a horde the incin can still do some damage, but just attack with the cc arm. The cc arm can also wipe out vehicles quite handily (if you can get to them...). If I were going into a tourney I'd take those options. Also, why is the forgeworld incinerator arm so ridiculous?
I always take a TL Lascannon on my Dread's as Gk's need as many anti-tank weapons as they can get. The other arm is up to personal opinion i like the CC arm with an incinerator as this can deal with whorde armies as well as givng the Dread a wepaon to take down big things, like carnifexes and armoured vehicles etc,etc.
GREY KNIGHTS RULE!
You know, I LUV that CC arm for the GK dread...SOO much cooler than the Ven Dread wannabe arm for the rest of the MK IV dreads...I think that GW should start making the MKIV in plastic, don't you?
Hells yea. The only thing keeping me from buying the forgeworld GK dreadie and arms is the extra cost and shipping. I think the Dread and 2 arms is only like $55 or so (might be off), but there's like $5 or more shipping, and gah. I can run down to the store and buy a Ven Dreadie for like $45... That's at least one extra GK Termie's worth of $!!
Mega, if I'm allowed to call you that, when you think about it, you're not paying a whole lot more for the MKIV GK Dread from FW if you want to buy the GK Dread conversion kit, and you're paying for something at least 10x more badass. I'm saving up for it. It's beautiful.
you know, I thought about that after I posted... and since I haven't bought one yet, I'll probably just save up a little bit longer... You're definitely right tho, badassness is worth its weight in resin, if you will, cause it scares the **** outta the other guy.
Heheh...worth its weight in resin...I'mna hafta remember that one...I would probably rather have resin model than gold...oh *****...can you imagine having to move a solid gold Land Raider? Even worse, a solid gold Thunderhawk!? YEESH!
