I play a drop pod space marine assualt force and was thinking about getting a dreadnaught, and BOOM! I saw the Penitent Engine model and i was hooked. Now I know technically I can't put him in a pod but I play my family memebers mostly and I know they would let me.
So could you guys give me just a basic overview of a Engine, and would it be worth getting I plan on getting the codex this week so thats not a problem, or a should i just stick with the dreadnaught.
Thanks For All Your Replies
um, well this is kinda wierd... and we cant say much due to copyright, but its a dreadnought with slightly weaker armour, has the same rule as khorne and blood angel black rage, they can be fielded in squadrons like sentinels, have the same thing as daemonic possession, get d6 attacks, um, and i think thats about it. oh, and your army must include a priest to field them in the first place.

With a "little" converting you can make a dread out of a penitent engine, it would probably be a lot of fun to do and make an interesting modell (though take a LOT of work).
Or you can make a witch hunter list with allied marines, and take the drop poded dreads alongside penitent engines. This would be the most proper way of fielding the modell, if you don't enjoy converting as much as i do =)

well if ya just playin friendly games then i would suggest using the pentient as a standin for a dread as personnally i think a dread is alot better
but gen is right the pentient is acurately described as a cross between a sentinel and a chaos cc dread

I guess it could work, except for the condemned heretic who's like strapped to the Engines
