Warhammer 40K - Dreadnought by RobertFriis Warhammer 40K - Dreadnought by RobertFriis
An image of a cool moment in a Warhammer 40000 roleplaying game I participated in some time ago: "Look guys! It's the cavalry coming to save us!"

How the HECK did the GM work all that out? Seriously. I'm running an RPG myself ATM. I have improvised all of the sessions on the day I do it.

Heh, well, that's pretty much the key right there. My GM's tend to prepare pretty elaborate stuff in advance of the scenarios. It's improvisation as well of course, but they never start up empty-handed. Characters, plotlines, backstory, all that takes off-game preperation...that, or some pretty spectacular improv skills at least. ^^

great! of all the ranks in 40K i think the dreadnought is the most fascinating... encased in living armor to fight on after death (imagine a Roman centurion or Napoleonic general...)

i like it =D lot's of detail and stuff good work

just some things that caught my eye, it's looks kinda like the marine is in front of the dreads left leg :p and there is no weapon on the dreads Close Combat arm :D

good job anyway ;-)

I took me some creative liberties on this one...dreadnoughts always looked too small to me, so I made it huge on purpose. :) As for the close combat arm...well...who needs guns when you can CRUSH YOUR ENEMIES TO GOO? :D

swartsengagger Featured By Owner May 18, 2008
hehe =D

and yeah, the dreadnoughts made by GW are to small :( but then again, so are the marines xD

i think they are suposed to be around 3m tall and the dread is 3.7m according to the Imperial Armour book :)

But I really like the drawing a lot =D

That's Fantastic! I love the caption as well. Lately, as a DoW player, I've been using dreadnoughts as a main attacking force, and It's always good to see Orks get their backs broken! I like the fact that the Dreadnought takes up our main perspective, but you still notice the rest of the cavalry behind it.

"Liberate tu temet ex inferis"

- "Save yourselves from HELL!" You took that line from that scary space movie where they made a black hole and unleashed hell and gouged their eyes out and played with blood and fire and explosives and which name I forgot. :D

I used to play Wh40k. Don't have the time or the money for it anymore.

incredibly realistic looking. Looks like a picture from the codex imperialis, or the 2nd addition rule book i forget which, but shows a near chapter sized, if not that, deathwing force in front of a bastion entrance.

very nice picture, really does honour to the space marines.

3500 point Eldar army
2500 point Tyranid army

10 years of playing, still not enough killing.
