Relictors Leviathan Dreadnought w/ Storm Cannons

Hello readers, thanks for dropping by, well I promised it would be something more shooty in my last post so here is my latest addition to the Relictors Battle Company, a mighty Leviathan Dreadnought armed with Storm Cannons.
I painted this beast the same scheme as my usual Relictors, Codex Grey, washed Nuln Oil, highlighted Administratum Grey. The base was Calthan Brown, drybrushed with both Kommando Khaki and Ushabti Bone.
I drybrushed the cannons, and to add some interest with gold recoil springs and Leadbelcher hydraulic cylinders. I wanted them to look industrial and heavily used.
The under mechanical bits were also Leadbelcher drybrushed and then I did the grey. The exhaust ports were weathered with a little Tin Bitz to look aged.
I can't wait to unleash the firepower of this Dreadnought, I opted to model the Missiles too. More dakka is always a welcome addition.
The longer term plan will be to get another Leviathan, but armed with a Siege Claw and Siege Drill for lots of close combat goodness, I might even get a Dreadnought Drop Pod so I can deliver him into the enemy lines.
And for all those who are interested in how big this beast is, a size comparison shot of the Dreadnought with its smaller gun happy brothers, a 'normal' Rifleman, and a Kheres Assault Cannon Relic Contemptor. This Leviathan is huge and bulky.
And finally, a shot with a Battle Brother, yep big...

Yesssssss! I can't wait to build mine, I bought the same configuration as well, I reckon the storm cannons are going to tear ass on the tabletop.

Pose and paint look great too man, yeww!

That looks extremely cool - whilst I may not have the funds to get one of these in the near future, he's definitely going to be on my list!

Grey as always looks really good, such a subtle colour scheme yet so striking even so.

Wow, that is huge! I don't think I have ever seen the size comparison before.

Looking great, dude! The dual Storm Cannon build is totally what I would go with there as well. Just wish it were a bit cheaper (both in terms of points and cash), but still, that should be a hail of firepower going downfield. Especially with his little brothers pitching in alongside!

Very cool! You're right, it doesn't get much more shooty than that - Good stuff, man!

Rory Priest said...

Love it, nice paint job, a pose that shows a sense of lumbering movement and two huge cannons. Rules wise what are the stats for those?

Siph_Horridus said...

Thank you very much everyone, most gracious.

@ Rory, they are both 24in, S7 AP3 Heavy 6, Sunder. Dakka Dakka Dakka!... MEQ and Transport killer with re-rolls for Armour Pen.

Nasty piece of hardware.

Quite wonderful.

Looking great. Are you still using the brown from the scenery set? Must be running low by now!

Loving this model. Might have to get one for my Wolves I think

Greg Hess said...

He looks great...that is a lot of shots if I remember the stats on those guns correctly. Going to be quite the dakka machine!

Siph_Horridus said...

Thank you all, yes quite a piece of hardware.

@ Greg, yes 12 medium strength shots with AP3 and Sunder... Ouch.

@ Alex (From the Fang), indeed, still over half the bottle left, I top up the little pot of Calthan Brown from it, it's the same Foundation paint, great coverage too. How's your snow terrain projects coming along?
