Does a Black Reach Dreadnought fit standing inside a Drop Pod?

Only the FW resin one!

Are you sure? The Black Reach Dreadnought is smaller..

Only the FW Resin DROPPOD.

Sorry that wasn't clear to you.

It doesnt matter...It can still go into it as a transport, just it doesn't fit in real life...

Ive found you can even fit 10 space marines in a rhino, provided you cut them into little pieces first, but then glueing them back together upon deployment takes forever...

It's not hard at all to fit ten marines in a rhino, so long as they're not all splayed out on a one-inch base.

Dont trust GW scale....it really does suck lol. No the dreadnought model does not fit sitting in a drop pod, only the FW resin one.

In game terms...yes it does.

To fit them in there maybe...but can they affectively use it as a transport and coming out guns blazing?:D

Yes. The Imperial Armour book for marines even has a diagram showing where all 10 guys would be sitting ad standing/crouching.

And just so this stays on topic.

@ Incoming: If you're thinking about the plastic drop-pods, then no. You'll be hard pressed to fit a dreadnought inside that. The AoBR dreads are the same size, or dang close, to the normal dreadnoughts now. FW's flashier ones just seem larger due to all the extra accessories on them. The weapon arms are interchangeable for all of them. But, the FW dreadnought sized drop-pod, will accomodate pretty much all of them (without giant standards) easily.

Guys I actually think having a Battle of Skull Dreadnought standing inside a plastic Drop Pod will work, it's not much height that would limit it anyways so I think it's possible to model.

I'll see when I get both models at the same place..

I've noticed nobody has actually mentioned you have to remove the harnesses and central bit from the DP to make a Dread fit in it. Because if you do that you can easily fit one in.

Or is this just going without saying? ;)

Just checked my BR dread and my drop pod without the harnes...no, it will not fit.

25-04-2009, 20:17
Really? I checked that the only thing that stops the dread from fitting is the base.

25-04-2009, 20:54
Yes, the Dread does fit in, I have done it.

You need to leave some of the central engine out, and so the dread could step out, I left two of the supports off, to make a thre door version, then added plasticard to th edges of the doors to make up for the missing supports.

I would post a photo, but my camera is not working.
