Death Company Dread with Blood Talons

So my new Dreadnought claws arrived this week courtesy of rabblerouser on Warseer. I saw them in one of his WIP posts and I had to have some.

Edit: You can contact/find out more about purchasing these awesome Claws here:

So here they are. 3 'fingers' and a 'thumb'. The central piece fits perfectly on both GW and Forgeworld arms. I will be using FW arms for my first dread.

So I assembled my claws and the Forgeworld arms. I clipped off the tab on the FW arm and drilled out a hole with the dremmel in which I superglued a small magnet. I drilled out a hole in the claw central piece and affixed another magnet so that I can interchange if necessary between Blood Talon and the original Fists. As I was using a GW plastic Dread body, I also attached an underslung melta and flamer to each arm after trimming them to fit and filling the gaps with green stuff.

The arms are also magnetized so they can be removed, I magnetized the back pack for ease of travel and added a chaos smoke launcher for decoration.

  1. That looks nice mate. Painting time =D!

  2. I really can't articulate how happy I am with these talons. they are easily up to standard with Forgeworld parts and they are incredibly easy to clean, assemble and magnetize so you can swap them out for the fists that come with the FW Dread arms. I wholeheartedly recommend them!
