The Dreadnought it's self is repaired from some silly things I have done to it over the years. The multimelta was a twin linked lascannon at one point because the original was hacked up to make a right hand close combat weapon for a custom ironclad dreadnought that I have still not completed but will be working on again soon. It's storm bolter was drilled at one point but the holes were horribly out of alignment so I filled them back in with green stuff and painted on black spots for barrels. The shield was not to cover over a blemish but to make it stand out from the other dread from the assault on black reach box I have painted up totally stock. I don't know who first did this little conversion but I saw it first on one of the pictures of the days on Bell of lost souls.
There are still allot of things that could be improved with this guy but I think I got want I wanted as far as a second multimelta dreadnought with a bit of a different look to him.
