First Bite! Space Sharks Ironclad WIP
Hope that everyone had a good Christmas. During some down time last night and today I managed to glue this fella together, a pretty straightforward Ironclad Dreadnought for my Space Sharks.
DCCW/heavy flamer, chainfist/meltagun is the configuration I plan on using, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the kit lets you also make the hurricane bolter and seismic hammer arms so that you can swap them all out with ease. I loved how easy the original plastic dread was when it first came out and liked how they did the alternate arms then, and I'm happy to see that they continued that trend with the Ironclad. A very nice and easy kit to assemble. Kudos to the designers of both dreads!
For some reason the dread base came in black plastic. No problem, just a little weird since I'm used to seeing those in grey. I guess maybe they're doing all bases in black regardless.
I fiddled around with various spikes and blades, but didn't really like the look, so kept him pretty much stock. The exceptions being the Ogre Kingdoms maw gutplate added to the front of the sarcophagus and a hook on the back for use as an engineer in case he needs to help pull a rhino out of the mud or something.
Hopefully more Sharks to come soon!
