The Headnought

I think this is perhaps the stupidest miniature I own. He came with a bunch of second hand Ultramarines I bought a long time ago. One thing I do know is that it has endured a lot of mocking. A dreadnought with a head seems to me a daft concept and whomever made him was either a genius, or had taken some substance and gone mad.

I have however, become quite fond of the damned thing and so have decided to make it some sort of mascot. I touched up the paint on him, picking out some details and giving him some highlights. I’ve also added some more texture paint to his base and painted the rim. He will remind me that not everything isn’t he Grimdark universe has to be serious, and there are no limits. If you want a dreadnought with a head, why not?

All he needs now is a name…

  1. Where most dreadnaughts are parts of people intered in a sarcophagous (sorry for my bad spelling), maybe this was the only part of the sorry space marine they could inter but did not think of building a lead coffin just for a head… I say Icabot as a throwback to the headless horseman?
