Thousand Sons Dreadnought by ElCasiegno Thousand Sons Dreadnought by ElCasiegno
"Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods." - excerpt from various Warhammer 40k books

Finished painting it. Took some photos from different angles and photochop'd them together. I'm not great at painting (but not bad either), my main skill is conversions. The left arm was made from a regular arm with a daemon head stuck on for a claw (though this is a poor example, it's only 2 bits glued together). I had to paint up that arm so it looked like it had the gold trim thats on the right arm (should of modelled on a trim before starting painting).

Some fluff (background info):

The Thousands Sons are one of the elite Space Marine chapters from Warhammer 40,000 but they have fallen to temptations of the Chaos gods. They now fight against the imperium they once defended. The god they follow is Tzeentch the god of Sorcery and Deception.

Dreadnoughts are mechanical robots that are piloted by mortally wounded Marine, kept alive by internment in live preseving sarcophagi. They are only brought out of stasis for combat (some Marines kept alive in this manner are as old a 10,000 years).

Here's some pictures of the same model (though with different armaments) painted professionally. [link]

I really like the use of the daemon head for the power fist. Nice piece here.

You should see the greater daemon I'm working on. I've put 2 heads on it. I was going for an aquilla theme.
