Hi :thumbs I decided to make a Deff Dread out of the beakie dreadnaught from AoBR I had lying around. I started by cutting the front plate off. I then tried to get a boyz head to stick in, but it's just too small. :scowl Should I use a bigger head (I will have to buy another as I only have 1) and if so what one? :? Thanks :cheers

Have you tried putting the head in some sort of frame to make it seem bigger? Otherwise go for a Nobz head - one with a cybork eye if possible

Hi :thumbs Thanks for the suggestion, but I managed to get the boy head to fit. I have edited the dreadnaught by adding on spikes, glyphs and engine parts. I am going to order some weapons (probably a shoota, burna,buzzsaw and something else) but they might be a while. Pics may be coming soon. ;)

I was thinking of doing something like this with my own AOBR Dreadnought. We originally built and painted the Beakies for practice, but now they just gather dust in the corner, since everyone else plays a different army.

Good start. Here are a few suggestions. 1) I don't see where you added any engine gubbins-just stick bombs. Find yourself some exhausts from the bikes/truck or whatever kit, or use some tube to fancy up the exhausts. 2) Get rid of the beakie symbols. 3) Add some spiky bits around the feet. If your up for a bigger challenge, try to incorporate some of the hoses/wires on the torso into the head of the ork.

4) resize your pictures! them things are huge! generally i go for making the largest edge 900 pixels long - makes them big enough to see details but small enough to not eat into the bandwidth.

"try to incorporate some of the hoses/wires on the torso into the head of the ork. " and you might also have a few tubes/hoses dangling between the legs... More 'looks like its falling apart but hanging together' effect - I like the way you've done the head for this reason.

I opened your pictures in MS-Paint. Shrunk them to 25% of their original size, cropped out the surrounding background, and pasted the two together. All of which took me less than two minuets. Please delete those huge band-hungry pictures and replace them with this one. Your two pictures are munching up almost six and a half MEG of bandwidth the Waaagh kindly allows us to use free of charge. But as you can see with a little editing they use up less than 100K and are far easier to view. There are very few forums out there that allow it's members to upload files directly because bandwidth isn't free. So the least we can do is acknowledge this generosity by using it sparingly ;) The dred itself looks rather promising.

Hi :thumbs Sorry about the massive pics :blush I will make sure the ones in the futre aren't so huge. I've edited the dreadnaught a bit. I took off the iron gob (accidently ruining the head, so I had to replace it) and streched it with pliers and put on the bottom of the cockpit. I will continue to work on it, escecially the legs, and will put up more pics when it's done. I might be a while though, as I'm currently saving up for the codex, and will get the arms after. Thanks for the comments. :biggrin

Good start.


Yes I agree, looking good so far!

My suggestions is for the head, the banner top of the Black Orc kit might work well for a face instead? One of the tops is an Iron Orc face (this one, not the Beastmen head).

I think he wanted to do this without buying anything new, popisdead. I think it looks good, and has some serious potential. ANd don't worry about Krooza and tank kusha choppin' ya for big pics, they did the same to me first time I posted pics. Intresting to see it was them who did it then, and it's them who do it now.

Actually I am going to get new engine gubbinz and guns from Bits and Kits

If there is any bits sites that are better, they would be much appreciated :thumbs
