I think the top ones are chopped off Shokk Attack guns (brilliant!), but the bottom one I can't place.

The grey plastic pieces on the back, where did they come from?


The upper is cut from plastic shokk attack guns. The lower is cut from a stormboy jump pack.

Here is a progress pic. These will be little bigger than the previous dreads but not as big as a mega dread.

Love the face. Isn't the Testors liquid plasic glue a godsend compared to gels?

It is much better. The bottle knocks over too easy though.

I had a friend who glued a cap from a quart of Dean's milk ( the milk chug style) to the bottom to stabilize it.

Edit - some testing shows that glue may not be neccessary; the threading holds the bottle pretty firmly.

Who is Dean, and how can he manage to give so much milk?

This pic is a little blurry but good enough for now.

That holds more detail than most 40K scale scratchbuilds!

The builds are done. Now I have to decide on paint.
Should I paint both as Bad Moons?
...or, paint one as a Goff and one as Bad Moon and make them Boss Dreads? (repainting a Goff Dread to Bad Moon to complete the Mobs)

These are awesome, I'd certainly go mad trying to recreate them though.

Sucky metal dreads & kans for me I guess. Unless some nice talented animal has plans to do them in the future sometime...

I have scratched this itch.
No more Ork Dreads for me.
I will probably buy the metal minis and if any animals do decide to make Kans then I will want those as well but for now, I am done.
