Salamander Dreadnoughts

I finished up my 6th and 7th dreadnoughts tonight- one Ironclad and one 'jack of all trades' that is swappable (along with 3 other dreadnoughts of mine) between various permutations of lascannon, missile launcher, assault cannon, multimelta, and CCW.

First up is the ironclad, done in the same sponged-and-stippled weathering style as my first ironclad and many of my Cygnar jacks. The base is from Dragonforge, a seller that I can't recommend enough. The icicles are from there as well, though I don't know how I feel about them on the base.

And here's Mr. Jack of All Trades. I know the 'pro' choice is to take the rifleman dreadnoughts, but I personally don't care for the look of the conversion using aegis defense line guns, and can't quite stomach the FW arm prices.

Dreadnoughts are probably my favorite thing about 40k, so these were a great way to transition back to 40k painting after a long hiatus. They were also excellent practice for my FW Salamander Dread, hopefully showing up in an article just like this in the next month or so!

What can I say? I love me some dreadnoughts!


  1. They look amazing. Great snow BTW, I am starting to really love snow basing and this is one reason why!

  2. Thanks guys!

    OST- I like it because if I make mistakes with basing, I can use snow to cover it up.
