>> No.39426200

When you look at it from a certain angle it looks like a Reasonable Dreadnought. I like how it underlines how far tech has fallen. These patterns are down right ergonomic while the vanilla dreadnought looks like a walking cube. Mechanicus nsure have made some adjustments.

that reminds me. What was the original purpose of the dreadnought patterns? I mean like dark age of technology, why did thy come up with this design? They could field entire battalions of baneblades and worse, what purpose would these serve?

Probably the same things that they are "ideal" for in the 40k fluff. They're not really the best battlefield spearheads but they're pretty great for fights in built-up areas, boarding actions and other close quarters. They can navigate more obstacles than a tank, fit in narrower spaces but still bring some big guns and smash stuff. It's not gonna out-shoot a predator tank, but a predator tank can't chase you down an alley and pull your legs off. Or punch holes in walls or roofs and stuff.

I actually imagine the originals as utility units, like powerloaders and construction equipment. Instead of a coffin, it has a cage over the front where the operator "stands," and the shoulder joints could be made to accept a wide variety of different equipment. Stuff for mining, logging, demolition, materials handling, and the like. They wind up being repurposed because A, there's a lot of them, and B, they have a very flexible design. It would account for the way ergonomics give way to such a utilitarian shape. There's no need for fine motor control or human shape in those kind of applications.

Basically, it's like a bipedal Bobcat, done up killdozer style.

Deredeo is amazing and I love the boat-torso.

Helbrutes aren't chaos dreadnoughts, they're chaos dreadnought equivalents made by the dark mechanicum guys and infused with grim dark.

Honestly out of all the armies that had dreadnought equivalents that then got their own fluff (orks&eldar), chaos really shouldn't have been one of them, or at least, shouldn't have had dreadnoughts completely replaced. At least there's still forgeworld to fix that.

Sorta. They have their own models, their own rules (which are clearly based off the old chaos dread rules), their own formations, etc (some of which are good, by chaos standard anyway).

FW has separate chaos dreadnought rules. Its not 100% clear whether a chaos dreadnought is completely separate; a helbrute seems to be the mutated, insane result of CSM who are sad and upset about becoming giant killer robots, whereas chaos dreads are happy and there's various specialties, including one that can ascend to become a daemon prince if it blows up. None are too points efficient.

>> No.39438664

They're unlucky CSM that are drugged up and stuck inside this fleshmetal, parasitic and life supporting body. They go insane as they are kept awake (often with other screaming brutes) instead of shut down in stasis like loyalist dreads. Their arms are torn off after the battle is won to stop them shooting at their captors as well. They're pretty much the opposite of dreadnoughts fluff wise.

Other than that they're basically dreadnoughts with some fluffy rules, they have the crazed table if they get shot at (which fucks them over most of the time) and can take a few unique weaponry and upgrades.

They're often viewed as a punishment.

They're made in large quantities by the Dark Admech as horde units.

The crafting of a single Dreadnought is a major undertaking, an effort of artifice that is as much spiritual as
physical. By comparison, Helbrutes are spat from the daemonforges in great numbers, their industrial
production overseen by conclaves of Warpsmiths. Malformed and twitching, these foul engines of war possess a

This is bullshit man, swastikas exist through just about every culture and are still very much in use in the western world (Finland and the Isle of Man being prominent examples). It was chosen as the symbol of the nazi party for the same reason as most of their symbology, a resurgence of celtic/pagan culture.

They probably didn't even know they ended up with a swastika similar to the hindu one, especially considering pic related...

Yeah I get that, my point was that there was no hijack of another cultures symbol (it is the pure aryan nadzis remember) but a return of a dead symbol that was dug up alongside runes and other stuff. There's no loss of a symbol as it was already gone way before hitler took a fancy to it.

If you're putting it on a model there's only one reason for it that's not edgy and that would be some hindu themed space marine chapter, as they're really the only culture that has retained the symbol in any real way.
