>> No.27475286

for general conversions or just dreads? cause a deff dread/kanz box has a good bit of extras that can be used for makin' dreads deff. Besides that, if you got friends who play IG/SMs ask if you can get some of their bits. Remember orks loot a lot of stuff from humans, and they almost always fit something from them onto a vehicle, heck even some of the actual models (see lootas) use pre-converted guns. Besides that, plasticard and a knife plus a little skill will always help.

And to keep with the theme of the thread, here be one of my dreads.

>> No.27475440

Well, the main stuff I can tell you is make a junk drawer. If you are like me, you'll be rummaging through it all the time for conversions. Besides that, keep EVERYTHING from your kits, sprues and all. I've used the sprues at least 3 times now as framework for a bigger project. After that, if you got buddies who have bit-boxes, see if you can get stuff from them, I'd suggest mostly just getting guns, ammo-packs and stuff like that.

Thanks, that's the black reach dread, with extra bits from my deff-dread box, plus a gun from a heavy-arms model, and some wires.

He's made out of 3 extra killa kan arms, each foot is 2 ork boyz shoulderpads, and 2 ork boyz choppas. The body is actually the shoulder mounted big shoota from a stompa, I accidentally cut off it's support stand when I was clipping it, and I was all "this thing's about a kan's body, lets see what i can do with it."

That's a Forge world grot tank. I haven't got to use them in a game yet. Seem like fun though.

That's a freaking cool looking conversion! That's going in my image collection.

In return - magnetic dread conversion with rare-earth magnet pics! Thanks /tg/ for yet another fun thread. Start with your standard parts inventory...

>> No.27481097

Use a small hack-saw or jewelers saw and remove the shoulder tabs to create a flat surface. The flat surfaces are where you'll mount the larger shoulder magnets.

>> No.27481114

Start by drilling a very small pilot hole in the center of the shoulder area. (I tend to draw an X on it to help find the exact center - that way I keep the hole in the center of the bit.) The enlarge the hole with successively larger drill bits or with a Dremel tool router bit if you have one. The opening should be just large enough that you can squeeze the magnet into it. If you do get the opening too large, then you can use epoxy putty to fix it, but it's easier if you don't screw up.

>> No.27481132

The magnets should fit in the opening. In my case I wanted the should surface magnets to stick out a millimeter or two from the plane of the shoulder itself so that the weapon arms would have the ability to make surface to surface contact with the shoulder magnets and not sit at an odd angle due to the upper body of the Dread.

>> No.27481150

I also decided to magnetize the Torso and hip joint so that the Dread could have some dynamic range of motion for those 'Heroic Action poses'. (This is also the reason I use some of the larger rare-earth magnets - that way I don't end up with derpy looking drooping arms, etc.) One can certainly skip this if you're not wanting to do that much work.

>> No.27481160

Just finished my Contemptor last night actually. Sorry for the cellphone photo. You guys have some awesome kitbashing skills.

>> No.27481164

I used a larger magnet in the plate that forms the bottom of the Dread's torso, and now a smaller but firmly anchored magnet in the hip unit. Making sure that the magnets sit at the correct depth inside their respective parts so that they make good contact allows the Dread's torso to remain level.

So, can anybody tell me if the FW arms for SM dreads (contemptor and otherwise) are good for both arms? As in, if they make a weapon just for say the right arm, am I able to take the actually arm bits, not the shoulders obviously, and slap them onto the left arm if I feel so inclined?

>> No.27481645


Yeah, pretty much, for contemptors at least. Which arm it is depends entirely about how you construct the elbow joint.

>> No.27481651

If you look at Forge World you'll find they make left arm versions of most of the weapons. About the only one's you don't routinely see are right armed versions of the missile launchers, and left armed versions of the assault cannons. That said, you could remove the end of a right arm ass-cannon and place it on a plastic left arm missile launcher if you wanted to field a dual ass-cannon wielding Dread.
