Building a better Spacecrusade (6)

I have some thoughts on the guns of the dreadnought and want your opionion...

I am currently modeling the upper torso but already now think about how the weapons of the dread will look. I could go the easy way and just take the spacemarine sized versions- this would also help with new players reckognizing them. On the other side it is a big beast with more room and chaotic on top. I think I would rather go the long way and give him bigger, more chaotic versions of the weapons and while doing so, change the apperance of the guns alltogether. I made some sketches to work with last night- what do you think?

Can I even go so far to replace an Assault cannon with a twinlinked autocannon?

I don't even think you should use an assault cannon - the old one looks more like an autocannon to me, and chaos generally is stuck with autocannons. They are usually bigger so that could help.

I think I would like any change from the old missile launcher style - lol.

check this out - I found it just googling for the original picture, pretty cool conversion!

Thanks for the link. The problem with the spcecrusade dread is the size. It is rather tricky to get him on a 50mm square base and therefor needs to be rather compact. As for the missile launcher- I will definitely replace it with something- not totally sure what although. For the assaultcannon I will just dig in my box and see what I come up with.
