If you thought that the Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought was the best looking of the walkers for the Space Marines then maybe think again once you’ve seen the Leviathan Pattern Siege Dreadnought which is now available to order from Forge World…
This new pattern of Dreadnought does exactly what it says on the tin and that is to siege the enemy into oblivion with a huge frame and some very deadly weapons. You can see a few versions of the Leviathan here with different load-outs as the actual arms are sold separately from the main body.
“Towering over later Imperial walker patterns, this heavily armoured dreadnought is savagely powerful. It was designed for siege warfare and primarily armed with close combat and support weaponry that can rend buildings, vehicles and flesh alike; though it is no less effective when armed with the powerful and esoteric short ranged weaponry uniquely developed for it.
The Leviathan’s oversized reactor allows it to bear weapons more powerful than other classes of dreadnought, and also powers reinforced energy fields that surpass those developed for the Contemptor class.”
This is a huge construct and very few of them have survived into the 41st Millennium. They were developed in secret on Terra during the latter days of the Great Crusade to help turn the tide although as you can see some of them have fallen to Chaos.
You can see the various weapon choices available to you HERE with my favourites being the Grav-Flux Bombard and the Leviathan Storm Cannon. I would just make this into a wrecking machine at range. To be fair though I imagine this is quite a beast in combat too.
I think this model rather deserves the name ‘Dreadnought’.
What do you think?
