as you can see, i've added a lot of extra bitz and gubbins to the new venerable dreadnought chassis. i've always felt that a marine's armor should be a shrine to himself and his chapter. i can see a dreadnought being a shrine to the chapter and the imperium.
the piece i like best is the set of blood talons that i picked up from paulson games. well cast, easy to clean, and nicely detailed, they are a breeze to fit onto the model.
i'll add more content as i continue to progress on this dreadnought and the other.
