I am currently assembling a Space Marine dreadnought and wish to include extra armour. I know generally you have to model items such as this onto the miniature itself. Is this true for dreadnoughts?
If so, have you any idea how to model extra armour onto a dread without ruining the overall asthetics of the model. What bits to use etc.
Any help would be massively appreciated. Thanks.
spare Tank tracks are always and option
but there is the other, more complicated way to convert to model by adding plates of Platicard onto it and add quite a bit of decoration to make it look like more of a Relic of your SM Chapter.
anything goes really...
Yeah plasticard may be the best option. I thought of the tank track links but thought they would look a bit silly. What about bits of parchmant or banners and stuff.Would they count as extra armour? Thanks for your fast response.
yes, i do see that as an option. i have seen it in other peoples armies and in several past WD's. where they are modelled to look like a walking/rolling church dedicated to the Emporer, though it would take quite a bit of creativity and imagination to make it look right but, yeah you could do it that way.
see... you've just answered your own question ^_^ cool eh?
I guess I did answer my own question didnt I. Yeah that would be cool. I think its the best option so far, I wonder if anyone else has any ideas. Anyone modelled extra armour on their own dreadnoughts? and if so how did you go about it?
Any alternatives to the ideas already discussed would be awesome.
I don't know about rules, but I found fantasy shields fit quite nicely on them.
Ignore the other stuff.

Cool pic! theres a whole bunch of extra armour possibilities on that model. Thanks. The fantasy shields look good, especially with some added marine iconography.;Y
Thanks very much, just got to buy a load of shields now.Hmmm. Was that picture one of your own models by the way?
The Bretonnian men at arms box has 20 shields in it if you're not looking to just buy the bitz. That's probably more than you'll need, I would imagine.
