I like the drills, if they were bigger they might be better weapons but it would ruin the balance of the dead.
Though, I think it looks a bit to clean for me. Them hard edge are a bit to hard. I have this thing for "dirty and torned" apperance of my models though and I know this is not how everybody like it.
I would have gone over the whole Dread with a thinned down mix of black , brown and darkred. Let it go to the recesses and whipe the other areas half-clean with your thumb, it's done in no time. Then have a (really dry) drybrush on them edges with some kind of silver-paint, a dark one like boltgun would do the trick.
I would also add some battledamage like bulletholes and chipped of pieces of metal, keep them bright metal like mithril.
And I must say I love those dreads.
I think the red is to bright. I shod have liked some more dark shades and darker red. Also the blue/green looks out of place, that color donâ€™t fit with the rest of the model.
When you are using gold combined with red it is important that you have a lots of shades close to the gold or the two colors blend together.
My main issue is that I think the red is to bright, but that is a personal thing.
Thats the photograph. It was taken with a flash, so it appears a lot lighter than it actually is.
thanks for the comments, and Andusciassus, I'll try that out.
Doesn't matter that the drills couldn't get a singles Guardsman, the Dread can swing them side-to-side and do hella damage to anything infront of it.

I Like the drills... How did you do it?
The only problem I have with the modeling, is that you could have put it in a more dynamic pose.
I would also darken the red, much like everyone else suggested. What red did you use? Because you said that it got lightened up... I think it should be Scab Red with possibly a brown undercoat to get it a little darker...
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
I'm a fan of the double power plant - nice!
A drill going sideways whilst rotating at high speed can do a LOT of damage, because on the spiral, all the edges are sharpened. So it would work.
Regarding the blue/green, it does look out of place. But its the correct insignia colours, so I don't know what you can do about that.
Since its a khorne dread, I would add a bit of blood to the drill bits. Just a bit on the cutting edges, not over the top, will make it a lot nastier looking.
what colours inks did you use because i have a red army made the cheme myself and i am going to make a dreadnaught soon what tips you got for the painting
just what tips to help with the extra detail thx because yours look cool and the drills very smart
I think you just got owned by the death Raven Company
