An Ancient Has Arrived

They say this cat Old School is a bad mother...
SHUT YOUR MOUTH!
I'm talkin' 'bout Old School Terminator.
THEN WE CAN DIG IT!


Yeah that's right, I went there. I can do that because I'm holding, in my hot little hands, one of the most beautiful models I've ever seen. This Ironclad Dreadnought was my prize for winning the Super Blog Chain Give-Away hosted by Dark Future Games. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking, and those can be checked out here:

Blog post about Dreadnought Thunder Hammer Conversion

Here's another one with my newest Dreadnought standing tall amongst two of his three Black Reach brethren. At some point I hope to add a traditional dread as well as as a new venerable dread kit, and a couple more Ironclads...yeah, about that. The wife totally won't let me buy that much but it's nice to have goals right?


On a related note, none of my Chapter's ancients have names. Any suggestions for me?

I recieved mine the other day as well but I haven't had a chance to get some photos with it's blood soaked brother...

Looks great with the others as well!

If only we'd get them to meet on a battlefield one day!

That would be fantastic...especially if I got to make the trip over to your part of the galaxy. Get those pictures up so we can see that Dread with some of the rest of your forces!

Can't go wrong with classic "smith" names:

Hephaestus
Gofannon
Wayland
Völundr
Ilmarinen
Tubal Cain
John Henry (okay, not a smith, but did carry a big ass hammer).

You gotta remember though that the Salamanders have some pretty unique names: Tu'Shan? What the heck is that from? There are some other weird ones in that Salamander novel too, but I don't have a copy anymore.

I can hook you up.

I am glad you like it brother. It was a lobor of love (after I got past the snot green stage!). I really had fun with this model and now that I see it next to your crew, I can see that it fits in and I can sleep well at night knowing that he fits in with the kids in his new neighborhood! I called him A'Tn Y'Tar, which is a bastardized version of dragon killer in african.

How about Moe, Larry and Bob (no relation to our Larry)

The Howard Crusade has dibs on stooges names, Geno.

How about A'Tn'shun S'Lut?
