I had the same reaction to the Repulsor vehicle too. Both have grown on me though and I’m starting to like them a lot. The dread looks a lot different with the front armour left off too. I definitely prefer it that way. Painting wise, it’s top notch. It totally compliments the style of your sicaran. Lovely work! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The first time I saw the new dreadnought on the GW website, I didn’t realize its size. By the Emperor, this big daddy is huge! Now, I have an another reason to restart my Astartes army. I agree with MonkeyBallistic, this model seems so different without the front armour. It is far better without it. And as always, your paint work is phenomenal. Your army have definitively a strong visual identity and coherence. Bravo! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I love the new DN and you’ve done it justice man. Nice work LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Brilliant work. A very impressive army, and you’re certainly getting through them at a cracking pace! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hail Hydra! Great conversion work and a stellar paintjob. This army is without doubt amongst your best work Migs. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply You made a lot out of this. The ghost-like look you give these is simply delightful! Still (just my opinion of course) it’s not a well designed model. It does only look cool when viewed from front. But I must admit I’ve not seen it in real life yet. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Superb mate, what a beast!! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Nice one! Still not a fan of the Redemptor model at all but your paintjob is outstanding.

The Anax Dreadnought is a brilliant enhancement of the new Redemptor…keeping both height of the new and subtle shape of the old. Stunning!

And I’m super happy with the new kit with the considerable but subtle adjustments I made to armor and posing. It’s such a beast and finally fits the Dainton artwork where the Ultramarine Chaplain is administering the ranks and the dreads are just hulking behemoths! “Reivers” are next. The most ambitious plan yet. To be able to build a squad of 5 strong heroic individuals, bare of all insignia and markings, each a distinct individual seemingly capable of leading the unit. Hydra theme. LikeLike Reply I had been idly thinking of running my Alpha Legion as a Raven Guard counts-as, and I think this might have just sealed the deal. The Redemptor looks just fantastic in their scheme. Great work, dude! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That is my gaming intention too – first few games I ran them just as normal marines, but the raven guard theme and rule fits these so well..
