Well with 2 dreads I don't need, and with a powerful need for firepower in my BLOODzerker army I find myself thinking of making Obliterators out of them.

Any thoughts?

I'm thinking take off the dread arms, replace with spawn or greenstuff arms ending in guns. More guns on the shoulders, chaos termi head growing out of the chest.

Are you sure the size will be ok? The oblits are so big.

I think if your going to convert anything into an obliterator it should probably be terminators. The dreads are going to be way to huge as oblits. You could convert the dreads into Chaos dreads or DPs of some sort though.

Once upon a time, I told myself it's better to be smart than lucky. Every day, the world proves me wrong a little more.

Yeah, the terminators would probably be your best bet. A little bit of green stuff and a few spare guns from your bits box and you got yourself some oblits.

Aren't 'blits like twice the size of termis? What base are they on?

I'm pretty sure oblits are on 40mm bases.

Biggerised spawnified terminators are your best bet!

I have seen some good examples just not sure where, I'll have a think?????

Edit found it!

I would suggest keeping the arms off entirely and have the gun barrels bursting out from the torso.

Man, that's the joy of Anime! To revel in the complete and utter wastefullness of making an unstoppable nuclear-powered combat andriod in the shape of a cute little girl, who has the ability to fall in love and wears an enormous bow in her hair.

Well dreadnoughts are £25 each and oblits are £12, a waste of money imo, you could just trade with a friend.

oblits are on the same sized base as terminators. once you add all those extra guns they come out looking the same size if not bigger.

dreads are much bigger then both. ive seen people use dreads as oblits and it just doesnt look right. the scale is off.

terminators are your best bet.

If we were to play each other in a tournament, not only would I table you, I would murder you, your family, every woman you ever loved and burn down your house. I mean, what's the point in winning if you allow people that don't take the game seriously to live?
