The Contemptor Dreadnoughts of the Custodian Guard are revered relics of the Imperium’s golden age. Each houses a fallen hero of the Adeptus Custodes, a warrior broken in body but not in mind who has opted to fight to his last breath. Articulated in the manner of a human warrior, the Contemptor fights with a deceptive dexterity for its size – onward it pushes, its heavy weapon system laying down a swathe of deadly fire. At close quarters, sweeps of its power fist crush infantry to paste and tear their war engines apart to leave naught but wreckage behind.
A huge walker, towering over its Space Marine brethren, the Contemptor Dreadnought is a true engine of destruction. Sadly, the secrets of creating new Contemptors are thought lost forever – the ancient machineries of the Adeptus Mechanicus that lurk beneath their heavily-armoured hulls are little understood, but highly respected. Unbelievably strong, incredibly well protected and wielding weaponry of impressive power, the Contemptor Dreadnought is somehow an even more frightening proposition to face in combat than its more modern brethren.
This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble a Contemptor Dreadnought, armed with a choice of multi-melta or assault cannon. Includes a transfer sheet and Citadel 60mm Round base.
