With the ETC moving to 1850 points, those of us with long standing 1750 points lists have to scratch our heads and think about how to make the move up. Just add a 100 point unit? add 100 points of extras to what you have? or completely rethink the list for the new limit?
I’ve pondered a few possibilities, and with Warpcon coming up next week it’s time to see how they fare in practice. So for Warpcon I’ll be adding a Chaos Dreadnought with Multimelta to my usual list. Not a bad unit for 100 points, particularly since the latest FAQ made the ‘friendly fire’ issue more controllable.
The only drawback is that I didn’t own a Chaos Dreadnought. Time to go shopping.
First choice is the ForgeWorld dreadnoughts – really amazing models and can be purchased with the exact loadout I need.
Problem: wouldn’t arrive in time… so no go.
What about the normal chaos dreadnought?
Ugliest model in the world.

I raided my pile of chaos vehicle bitz, a defiler head, and even a space crusade chaos dreadnought multimelta (blast from the past!). Here’s how it panned out:
