Forge World has put together two new Contemptor Dreadnoughts for you to use with the Legions of the Space Wolves and the Thousand Sons. It’s almost like they’re following our little project to bring to life some Horus Heresy-era armies!
The first of the Dreadnoughts we’re going to look at is for the Space Wolves and it comes armed with a Power Claw and Heavy Bolter for those up-close and personal engagements with the enemy. I always liked the idea of Dreadnoughts but the waddling ones from Warhammer 40,000 were a tad comical.
The Contemptor Dreadnought, however, is all kinds of awesome and you could imagine it getting stuck in when the battle is joined.
The Thousand Sons, on the other hand, continue with a different thread as their Dreadnought is armed with an Autocannon.
Allowing it to sit in tune with the style of the Thousand Sons it comes armed with a Force Blade for sticking into your enemies and the Autocannon which provides you with the range to deal with oncoming threats.
I don’t really like the stance here however and I’d like to see it rocking back almost, taking the full weight of the gun as it blasts at its foes.
Which of these will you be picking up?
