So, how should I use this model...?

I'm sure by now most people have seen this model. It is a little newer for me, as I only recently got online access since my move. But basically, it screams at me, and I must have it. But there is no way I'm starting Ogres. Fortunately the army I am working on is Chaos themed, and everything fits in a Chaos force, most of all big, nasty beasties. But I have a problem.

My plan for the army was based off Codex: Space Wolves (no Long Fangs for my Khorne guys, I just wanted to field a dozen or so Juggernaut riders), and beyond the Thunderwolves, there just isn't a big nasty monster in the army list. So what should I do? How many Juggernauts could I fit in a normal CSM army? Then he could just be a Summoned Greater Daemon, easy. But I don't want to lose all the Juggers. Should I bite the bullet and just field a CSM army? Or is there something this model could be in a SW list that I am just missing? I should have prefaced the question by saying I have never liked the concept of fielding organics with vehicle rules, but this guy could be an exception.

What say the few readers I may actually have left?

Just run him as a count as dread?

I know he is a bit big, but themed and all that?

I think it depends on what base size he fits on. Depending in how big he actually is, he could be your generals mount in a thunderwolf list

I agree with Black Matt. If he can fit on a 60mm base, he would make a great mount for a Lord. I can imagine Saga of the bear?

I would bite the bullet and do CSM..

He's a perfect Bjorn, and Bjorn is awesome. Since he's a dread he's not quite a full vehicle.

Also, maybe Canis? Or Iron Priest on TWC; with some big mechano-Khorna sword arm coming out of his back.

It would make a cool Demon Engine of Khorne, and for that I'd probably go with Bjorn as a counts-as.

Just paint him for sure - I am in the boat with you - shoot me an email so we can get some of these minis sent off haha.

Personally i'd use it as a defiler in a CSM list or a Soul Grinder in a Deamon one. You'll get more Juggers in a Deamon list too

Add the turrets razor-style, and you have a perfect land-raider ;)
