Miniature Monday: Deredeo Dreadnought

If you're a space marine with a taste for artillery and are severely wounded, look no further than getting yourself interred in a Deredeo Dreadnought.

I mean look at this bad boy, heavy support never had it so good.

Dual Lascannons and a Missile Pod, plus some Storm Bolters for good measure. Mm Hmmmm, tasty.

After the Leviathan, this pattern of dreadnought is my favorite model.

For this guy I decided not to magnetize the weapons. He will forever be a lascannon dread.

The reasoning behind this is because I feel like the other weapon options don't have a place. I need this guy to be my heavy hitter at deep range, especially in the dreadnoughts list.

In the all dreadnought list, all of my weapons are generally 24" range, with some 36" and 48" sprinkled in too. The problem I was having with the 24" guns were that I would get a few rounds of shots off and then would be in melee.

So if I can distract people from the Deredeo, he can usually get shots off most of the game, until he dies.

Add in the 60" range of the missile pod and this guy can usually blast anything he can see. Which is a huge amount of firepower, considering that the dreadlist is only 9 models.

The paint job on the Deredeo was a fun challenge too. He's a completely different shape than any of the other dreads and trying to figure out the highlights was interesting.

I feel like I did a fairly good job on the main body, but still feel a little off about the highlighting on the upper section of the "boat body".

Overall, he's a great piece though and I'd say he's usually the 2nd main target of folks, after the Leviathan. The Leviathan just scares the pants off of everyone, and for good reason.

That's it for now though.

Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the Let's Paint series and other videos.
