At last, the finally member of the Dreaded-Chessmen is finished, the King himself.
Geezus, I was beginning to think I wasn't going to be able to finish the Dreaded-Chessmen set before Summer ended, but luckily I was able to.
Now I know that the Dread-King looks somewhat "less impressive" considering he is the King, but sometimes you don't have to make things overly complicated to have it work.
His design was slightly based off of Nightmare from the Soulcalibur series more specifically Nightmare's 2nd Player alternate outfit from Soulcalibur 3.
The King's armor is mostly skeletal in design and shape, as most of the other Dreaded-Chessmen pieces have skull like faces or sometimes boney looking armor.
But anyway, I do like his design, he looks rather creepy to me.

Enemy file audio log #306:
The leader of the Dreaded-Chessmen and the one piece that could be even stronger then the Dread-Queen.
Funny enough, we know quite alot about the Dread-King despite only running into it a total of 3 times during raids of Digital Dreadnought strongholds.
For one like we've noticed with the Dread-Rooks, the Dread-King normally doesn't actively attack his opponent, his job is to guard whatever the D.D. are protecting; mostly stolen objects and technologies.
The Dread-King rarely speaks, but when he does the King speaks in "Ye Olde English" using words like "Thou, Thee, Ye, and Thy."
His Rooks mainly do all of the work of him as he has at least three Rooks around him at all times; two attack and one defends him.
However, when the Dread-King decides to fight in a battle, he will mainly say "I shall show, the errors of thy way."
On active combat the King as all control over the Dreaded-Chessmen in a very "Hive-Mind" mentality.
Even rogues like the cocky Knights and the savage Queen obey what ever command he utters.
He too, much like the Bishops and the Queen has Technomancy abilities as he'll often revive fallen Dread-Rooks.
The King's weapon is called "Dreadcalibur" a massively heavy Zweihander that the King swings with only his left arm.
In the King's right hand, he holds a ribbed shield, nothing special just a rather strong shield that he likes to bash and ram into his foes stomachs.
Now, the one surprising fact about the Dread-King is his sword, Dreadcalibur is the actual "Real" Dread-King, the body is simply a decoy.
Yes, this is quite shocking to us too.
As the first "death" of a Dread-King was dealt by Unit# 1336 Maridia Fairbottom, she melted the King down to molten melt in an all out blast of heat.
However a few months later, a "new" Dread-King appeared with the same sword in hand.
While in a that same second battle Jia Jing-Fei and Veronica Vespa were able to kill the first Dread-Queen.
...This was a mistake...
After seeing the fall of his beloved Queen, the Dread-King went into a blood-drunken rage, screaming like a crazed animal, slashing and maiming whatever stood in his way.
With his carelessness as a massive weakness Unit# 1288 Esther Ursa took matters into her own hands and smashed through the blocking Dreadcalibur with her immense strength.
Dreadcalibur shattered into pieces and the Dread-King's face light went dark.
He muttered "Thou didst quite well..." and died, every other Dreaded-Chessmen in a 200 yard area also went dead as well.
This surprise outcome gave us most of the data we know now on the Dread-King.
It is still unknown just what "Rank" Rezzver the Ravager has amongst the D.D., he has been reported to have used Dreadcalibur in a few battles, and he seems to be the only outside force that the other Dreaded-Chessmen listen to.
We speculate Rezzver is another "King" or just a decoy for Dreadcaibur to use, be he seems to have far too much free will and cares nothing for seeing a Dread-Queen fall in battle.
But if there is one thing we now know, is that the Dread-King is very powerful, even more powerful than the Dread-Queen frighteningly.
To all Peacekeeper personnel, stay away from the Dread-King, contact HQ for immediate backup is incounters.
Only Heavy-Troopers and Unit are capable for taking out an Dread-King.
Destroy Dreadcalibur, the body is only a fake.End of audio log...
