Ok so tldr of that part of the story was I bought 2 dreadpods and 3 dreadclaws, and the dreadpods needed dremeling just to get the part of the bottom with the hinge points to sit flush with the part of the bottom that has the gravplates and retro-thrusters
I just finished my fellblade
So now I need to do the service I offered as payment; building 2 dreadpods, knowing they’re from coolcast so logic states they should be better then the 2 I built, right?
@FarseerVeraenthis That doesnt happen in the heresy yet, since it's even after the battle of Terra. BUT in the Dark Angels books by Gav Thorpe shit goes to town in current 40k. Not want to spoil anything, but in the last book, The Unforgiven, a major mindfuck happens at the and which reveals what may or may not happened on Caliban :P
as I recall ... for the doors to actually go flush on the floor after opening ... a 9mm shim would be needed Add into that the actual base wasn't uniform in sizes, ... it was all over the shop with one side much shorter than the others
