Moar Miniature Madness! : The Venerable Mortis Dreadnought

Dreadnoughts are mysterious and venerated sarcophagi of fallen Space Marines, entombed forever within an awesome, life-supporting, steel shell, so that the said Space Marine may continue serving the Emperor and his Chapter beyond his broken physical body.

Depending on the Chapter, the respective dreadnoughts may wield a variety of armaments, and which brings us to the Mortis Pattern dreadnought. This awesome block of whoop-ass bears 2 heavy weapons, one on each arm. What makes it even more incredible than that is the fact that the Mortis Pattern dreadnought has skyfire capabilities, making it a mobile platform of awesome. Two Twin-Linked Lascannons to the sky? Flyers be shitting themselves silly.

What is even more mysterious about the Mortis is that it is only used by the Dark Angels and their respective successor chapters. Why this is so, no one know for sure.

Model-wise, the additional arm for the Mortis is not available through regular Games Workshop channels. The Left TL-Lascannon arm is made of resin and ordered through Forgeworld, as opposed to the rest of the model being the plastic Venerable Dreadnought model.

After the primary color were painted in, the entire model was washed with Agrax Earthshade and drybrush highlighted with Warpstone Glow, Ceramite White and Leadbelcher for weathering.

All pictures were shot using the in-built camera of the Samsung Note 3.
