Rogue Trader Friday (Modeling): Imperial Dreadnoughts

Along with my post this week at From the Warp, I thought I'd take a look at some Imperial Dreadnoughts from a bygone era. Im not sure they hold a candle to the "walking washing machines" the Space Marines currently deploy, but they certainly were unique.

The diagram below shows some interesting color schemes for the dreads including a Mentor Legion Dread apparently attached to the Inquisition.


  1. The Inquisition sign is a coincidence I think, as the logo wasn't actually developed until the late 90's, the inquisitor terminators of around that time don't have the crossed I symbol, but a crossed O instead :)
    Lovely images! :)

  2. Interesting... I think they look more like Tau Battlesuits. Think that is where the inspiration is from?

  3. They might not be as cool looking as the Dreads today, but these have way more character than today's models.

  4. Alos, they look like they could maybe just walk but our dreads dont, even on video games they waddle and look like stupid comical killing machines that cant walk so the designers just mades them waddle, come on at leaast make them the marching killing machines.
