Here is my other Ultramarines Dreadnought. It’s a plastic Venerable Dreadnought, originally painted in 2010. Once again I refined the highlights, added sponge weathering and built a new base. I also changed the front armour and a couple of other details – check it out after the jump.
Here is the original model before I reworked it. You can see that I added a smoke launcher and changed the front armour. In hindsight I felt that the gothic arches would be better suited for chapters like Dark Angels and Black Templars, so I changed them for plainer armour pieces.
Maybe at some time, I’ll add a “mother” Redemptor Dreadnought to complement my two “baby” Dreadnoughts. Let’s see. Only a few more models left to rework. I haven’t made up my mind yet what I’m going to paint after that, but I’m sure there won’t be anymore blue for a while 😉

I just used a hobby knife and carefully removed the feet from the base. Actually superglue is easier to remove than plastic glue, as plastic glue wields both pieces together, while superglue doesn't. Supeglue breaks easily under a bit of stress.

How did you manage to remove the old base? I have some plastic models I want to rebase, but since I used superglue I fear I'll damage them…
