Dreadnought autocannons arms

I always loved the dreadnought, both the stories and the models. Spirits of ancient marines keep fighting in mecanical behemoths. In the game dreadnoughts can play many roles both as fire support and close combat monsters. They come in a variety of versions and armament even if the specific bitz always is hard to get.

I designed these twin linked autocannon arms to build a couple of riflemen dreadnoughts. Especially the right side autocannon was hard to get hold of so I ended up designing my own in 3D and sent them to Shapeways for printing. Many players commented on them and made requests for their own. The easiest way to help them was to make them available to order directly from Shapewys.

Alternative right and left autocannons bitz

The arms fit the standard dreadnought model. You can easily magnetize them if you want to be able to swap armamanent for your needs. The package includes both the right and left arm. Both arms have an extra armor plate which is easy to remove if you prefer that look.

When you recieve the arms they are connected with small sprues. Cut or clip off these with a model knife or a pair of pliers.

The model will be delivered unpainted and you can choose between several different materials.
