See... I like the idea of a Chaplain Dreadnought. Forge World has rules for it, because it used to have a model. Rather than eBay myself a classic one, I want to make one. I was thinking the Venerable kit with a headswap, but can anyone think of any ways to do it that could be better?

 

Note: Blood Angels methods are appreciated, because the model is to be the Head Chaplain of a BA Successor, but not necessary, and I figure methods could be pretty much anything in the end, so I'm posting here.

The BA Death Company dread has a skull head, which is pretty much perfect. Put a bunch of imperial bling all over the front plates. Wings from dark/blood angel kits, lots of purity seals, and you're all set.

This. My Dark Angels Chaplain Dreadnought used the front plate from the BA Death Company Dreadnought grafted onto the normal Venerable Dreadnought:

Aside from that, everything on it is from the normal Venerable Dreadnought kit. Well, the Inferno gun is from the Baal Predator and the melee weapon is the FW Dreadfire one :lol:

Two of my Dreads, the first is just a custodes contemptor with a skull. The other is the Redemptor Dreadnought where I used a Venerable Dreadnought sarcophagus, you could use the Blood Angels skull one, instead of what came with it.

Just some ideas.

Here is how I made mine (edit...assuming you meant a venerable chaplain dread from FW rules)

I purchased some BA Furioso's on Ebay and converted them.
The wings on the side torsos reminded me of the FW model

I use one as my WL so I blinged him up even more

I don't do skull heads but a head swap is easy and would probably meet your goal

These are in my painting queue for ETL 2019

If you're open to using a Redemptor dreadnought, you may like the chaplain dreadnought that scriv_paints put together. It'd take a lot of work but the payoff would be worth it.

Holy bolters, that looks good brothers. Keep sharing those ideas and I might have a go at making one myself.
