"We have awoken!"

A little over a month ago, I traded an old WHFB Dwarf army for a Blood Angels army and over the past month, I have slowly been working on getting this army ready for playing. In this time, I acquire three of the new Furioso Dreadnought kits that were released in February and although I got them assembled a couple of weeks ago, I am just now getting around to posting them. So, here are my four BA Dreads. The fourth one is an AoBR Dread that I had and never did anything with until now.

We have awoken!

I built one of each Dreadnought type: Furioso, Librarian Furioso, and Death Company. These kits are really nice. I built all three of the Magna Grapples, but I did not glue them on. They fit quite snug and stay in place on their own without needing magnets, which is nice.

As for my other BA stuff, I have been working on the Stormraven my family got me for my Birthday last month. It is about 50% built, I am trying to decide on the best way to magnetize the weapons before I finish building it. I have not assembled my Saguinary Guard yet, I am trying to decide the best way to equip them before I do.

I am in no rush to paint my BA army right now given all the other stuff I have to paint. I would rather keep the army unprimed and unpainted until then.

In such company, that AoBR dread will be feeling a bit cheap I'm sure. You should use my method to fix that by adding a pair of FW twin-autocannon arms. That way it can be as expensive as the others.

lol. The AoBR Dread my be the cheapest, but he's got the biggest Melta on the block. :)

Your making a BA kan list! Be good to see them painted but your plate is as full as mine! I also rather build the stuff even if I'm not going to paint it for ages - at least you can get some friendly games in with them.

As for the AoBr dred... Im sure he has small "man" disorder melta or not! lol

I am not sure if I am building a Kan list at this time. I wanted to try out all three dreads to see which one I like the most. So far I have only used the Furioso. However, it would be very easy to fit all three dreads in a 2000 pt army.
