Machinations of an Unfettered Mind - Ironclad Dreadnought Conversion

So yeah, I was bored of Slaanesh for the evening and decided to take an Assault on Black Reach Dreadnought I'd saved from the bargain-bin and try to salvage it into something cooler. So with several bits bins, some plasticard and some Green Stuff, I've come up with this little guy. I recently finished up James Swallow's Nemesis book, and throughout it the author gives the characters gizmos and doodads that are compact and rather clever, much unlike the ornately baroque and unsubtle grim-dark devices we're used to. I used that take on 40k technology when I was building my new mechanical buddy. He's not festooned with purity seals, he has no filigree that would take artificers years to repair if a child's errant rubber ball ricocheted into him, his Hunter-Killer missiles aren't launching from the butts of golden cherubs.
