So, for my second major attempt at converting models, I converted a normal Dreadnought that had been equipped with a dreadnought CC wep, stormbolter, and a multimelta, into an Ironclad Dreadnought! This time it's equipped with a chainfist, heavy flamer, and a hurricane bolter!
I love greenstuff. (By the way, that's a searchlight on the top.)
Looks good...I have one question and a suggestion for you...
Is that the flamer on top of it?
If it is, I found that placing a flamer "under" the torso where the left sensors are (DCCW side), looks a lot better, and gives a much smoother silhouette. It can be a little bit of a nuisance to place, but looks like it's meant to be there once you're done.

Very nice! I love it when people dive head first into conversion work. It can be scary at times, but it's well worth it in the end. I'm still hesitant to really get into it myself, but I'm inspired by works such as this! Good job!
I was under the impression that Ironclad Dreadnoughts also had more armor plating.
Or is this a WIP?
I like your conversion though. This reminds me of when I converted 1 Dreadnought with an Assault Cannon and Fist into 3 Dreads, each with dual: Assault Cannons, Missile Launchers, and Combat Fists way before Forgeworld released their sets.
Have you thought of using Plasticard as sheets of armor plating? 2 sheets on the front two panels with little rivets will go a long way, and maybe even reinforced armor on the legs.
