Mariners Blight Deep Diver Dreadnought

Here is one of the centerpieces for my Mariners Blight Army, a Contemptor Dreadnought modified to look like an oversized deep diver. I drew inspiration not only from actual 1800's diver outfits, but also from Big Daddy.

I took the Forge World Dread and added some subtle Chaos trim with Greenstuff and Styrene rivets. I used a Chaos vehicle spotlight (Which fit perfectly) as the diver helmet. And then I sculpted the tentacles from greenstuff as seen in this post.

The base is from Secret Weapon Miniatures and the boat I bought from Billing Boats USA.


  1. I think I'm suffering from the bends from staring at your model for so long. My head is going to explode from the comic horror you have put before our eyes.

  2. Been looking forward to seeing him show up on here. Love the head and the lifting hooks, nice touch. I can't remember but have you decided on a scheme yet for the force?

  3. Look Mr. Bubbles, it's an angel!

    ...sorry, couldn't help myself there. Anyway, fantastic start on the new project. Looking forward to further developments!

  4. Thanks for the support guys!

    I do have a scheme in mind.
    It's pretty much this:

  5. Dear lord.....
    A bigger version of a Big Daddy....
    Can't wait to see it painted.

  6. That searchlight is so simple & yet awesome!
