    Dreadnought Close Combat Weapon

    Well, I'm painting my SM Dread, and I was looking at the 'faceplates' to decide what one I would use and I decided to wip out all my Dread peices and I took note of the Shin plates I'm not using (don't ask) and then I looked to the DCCW, I had wanted to do SOMRTHING to it but I couldn't think of anything till that momnent.

    So heres what I came up with.

    I hack up the DCCW into 2 nparts: The 'Shoulder' and the 'Hand'

    I then Bulk up the Hand with the Shin plates and make the arm out of plastic rod with some wire, maybe throwing an an 'invisible' Wrist. (hidden by the Shin plate bulk up)

    What do you guys thing of that?

    Also anybody got a good idea on how to mount the Storm Bolter? (Not on the 'Hand')

    Mike

    That sound cool, kind of like extra armor on the Dreadnought claw. For the stormbolter mounting try checking out Forge World designed Dreadnoughts, they have their stormbolter/ heavy flamers mounted on the lower left side of the sarcophagus (main body of the Dreadnought). I think it looks pretty sweet mounted like that, and could easyly be converted by yourself.

    But back on the claw issue. Are you plaining on making the whole dreadnought arm bigger as a whole or just the fist/claw? :confused:

    WEll, the hand will get kinda a gauntlet in which the 'Wrist' will connect, to the arm will be longer but that about it.

    Also, anybody know a good way to make the 'Fingers' look cooler?

    Tau shoulder pads look a good deal like they could be used as correct "finger" plating.

    Just use Green Stuff or something to fill in the Tau symbol on them.

    Trim some tau shoulder pads and glue em to the tips of the fingers to give them little finger joints. Also you will need to do something to smooth it out.

    and what about the main idea of the thread?

    I swear people don't bother reading the thread anymore....

    And the Tau Pads are a bit too big for my liking, and as the Hand istin't any bigger, it would look slgihtly outy of place.

    And heres a recap of everything you guys missed:

    I hack up the DCCW into 2 nparts: The 'Shoulder' and the 'Hand'

    I then Bulk up the Hand with the Shin plates and make the arm out of plastic rod with some wire, maybe throwing an an 'invisible' Wrist. (hidden by the Shin plate bulk up) I also wanna place the Storm Bolter in a cool position or place and I wanna make the "Hand" look more dangerous while keeping it in theme based on the Dread?

    Questions:

    1]What do you guys thing of that?

    2]How would I make make the "Hand" look more dangerous while keeping it in theme based on the Dread?

    3]Where or How is a good place to stick the Storm Bolter? (not on the hamr or arm, if you guys have a good idea for the shoulder that could work.)

    Oh the new one, now I understand. Danke
    It would be alittle weird but maybe you could put the stormbolter barrel thingies in the middle of the claw. Dragonball comes to mind (TV show I used to watch where energy blasts shot out of the characters palms.)
