Brotherhood Update: Bjorn the Fell-Claw

As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of the old stuff - it doesn't hold a candle to the new but it has tons of character.  This is the old Chaos Dreadnought, RTB-1 era.

Naturally it was purchased and set aside for my Brotherhood project!  I'm going to use it as a Counts-As Bjorn, complete with Plasma Cannon and a bad attitude.

Now THAT is what you call a classic miniature. I was involved in the hobby when those guys were walking around.

The earliest dreads I recall are the ones from space crusade.

It's an awesome paint job too. I love the base. The trickle of blood is fab.

Truly a classic miniature, and a great paintjob!

It will never cease to amaze me how much this dread reminds me of the old Tyranids.

That is one beautiful, quirky miniature. Amazing. and did I mention quirky...

Kris said...

I have three of those guys! I use them for Obliterators in my Plague Marine Chaos army.

Big Whit said...

Red rocket, red rocket! That's awsome.
Doc what does it mean when I'm pissing blood?

Brent, this is so got to be a caption contest for BALS, or is it to rated R?

CalPerr said...

Maybe Im jaded and only like new stuff, but that looks like a silly tyranid kit-bash with a bloody penis-stump

I used to have a Dachsund that had a weiner like that. The little bastard got put on probation for getting the local bitches pregnant. He could climb hurricane fences...I shit you not. He was a regular hungdini.

It's a wonderfully painted model but please, spay or neuter your dreadnoughts. If you don't hundreds of kittenoughts and puppynoughts will be forced into terrible lives because of the lack of good homes.

Porky said...

It's at least getting on for Chaotic, which is more than can be said for the just-add-spikes of today. Great posing and painting, in colour choice and execution.

I have no idea what you people are talking about.

Could you be more clear? More descriptive maybe?

Obviously I'm missing something...

Gauthic said...

The dread's got a penis, Brent. It's practically got sirens on it.

Urban Dictionary: Red Rocket -- just in case you really don't know.

OverCaffeinated said...

This was most likely a Slaaneshi dreadnought in a previous life...I feel mildly violated just looking at it. *shudder*

Aside from the discomfort, you did a really great paint job and the blood on the base is perfect.

The_King_Elessar said...

Heh, penis. I love that model ,and have an unassembled one in one of my bitz boxes. Someday, I will find a use!

Is that a pee pee?

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
