Well while I'm here I thought I'd stick up some shots for my Dread that I'm working on, It's by no means anywhere near finished seeing as it's not actually glued together yet. But I'll post what I've done so far, any ideas what I can do next will be listened to and possibly implemented. What I'm really looking to do is make a Venerable style sarcophagus so If anyone could help me out with idea's I'd be more than grateful.
Looking really good. Especially like the dragon heads on the weapon. Is it ment to be Twin-linked Lascannons or Twin-linked Heavy Flamers? I think flamers would work really well with the dragon theme.
You wanted a bit of advice of making you Dreads into Ven looking ones, I've got a few ideas. Heres a link to an old thread of mine that have a bunch of dread conversions in is: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ad-thread.html
This has examples of 4 or 5 differnt ways I've converted the normal plastic dread to be a Ven. The best way I've found is to use the heads from the Chaos Defilier and some platicard tubing. If you cut down the heads enough they fit on the dread really well without looking too big. You can use plasticard tubing for the barrel chest by getting a large tube and cutting it in half, this can then fit over the existing chest plate. I sujest putting the head in first and making the chest fit over it. You can then add detailing with plasticard stripps for trimming, bitz from sprues, compute and guitar wire and Green Stuff.
On the Black Templars Chaplian Dread I've used the chest from the actual Ven Dread kit and the head is from a Tomb Kings Tomb Scorpion tail. If you want a more indepth explanation of how to make the Ven then let me know, Cheers
Ive got another possibility, which also seems to work quite well:
Cut/file the detail of the front of the sarcophagus (might result in holes, cut plasticard to fit, but dont glue, Im not sure if the head would fit)
Take a terminator chest piece, a head of your choice (chaos or loyal marine, skull... up to you) and a piece to put underneath the chest piece (from your bitz box).
File until everything fits, then glue. Add details.
^^hope this helps you some...
Oh, and Id try straightening the legs, though the weapon looks geat so far!

Looks great so far. I really like the height and the custom gun. I'd like to see it painted.

Great tutorial for making a Venerable-looking sarcophagus:

The Emperor set a fire in their hearts that they might burn the iniquitous and the impure from his sight. And the light of that flame shall be as a beacon to the faithful, a light that shines in the darkest places.
Love the leg extension - but even more, love that fantastic marine helmet! Is it easy just to file through?
