It's occured to me that I can run a pure Dreadnought Army now, and I can probably get my hands on enough Dreads (especially if I finally finish my FW GK Dread...) to do so.
Some mechanical Questions.
Which type of Dreads to run, Grey Knights, or vanilla Space Maine Dreads.
Both have the same entry in the Index, but GK Dreads cost more.
Basic configuration, SM Dread are 133 points. Venerable versions are 153.
The Grey Knights version cost 17 points for for a Standard Dread (150) and 20 point more for Venerable (173).
For this increase In points they gain the Psyker keyword, and both the Rites of Banishment and Demon Hunter abilities.
Is this worth it?
Especially when there's no Character buff bubbles going on in the Army at all.
In order to run a pure Dreadnought list, I need a Dreadnought HQ. There's two options I've come across (I could have missed some!)
1: Blood Angel Librarian Dreadnought (192). This is nice if running GK Dreads as it keeps the Psyker theme.
2: Bjorn the Fell Handed (248). Quite expensive, as his Wargear is not included...
I'd be quite Tempted to run a Blood Angel Librarian Dreadnought as my HQ, with GK Dreads to keep the all Psyker feel.
The end times are here, and Titan has awoken all the valiant few Brothers encased in Dreadnoughts...
