Forge World Newsletter #333 - Emperor’s Children Contemptor and Forge World Black Library Preview

As always all the important bits below:


Hi there, In this week’s newsletter, the proud Emperor’s Children Legion have a new Contemptor Dreadnought available to pre-order, and we’ve also got a tantalising hint about something very exciting on the ‘event’ horizon...
Emperor’s Children Legion Contemptor Dreadnought Regarded as the most advanced and powerful pattern of Dreadnought fielded by the Legiones Astartes during the Great Crusade, the Contemptor draws not only upon technologies found in the more common MkIV and MkV designs, but also arcane systems taken from the ancient and shrouded lore of the Legio Cybernetica.

The significant advantages in speed and durability granted to the Contemptor over older Dreadnought patterns are not without cost, however, as it requires higher levels of maintenance than other designs. This has not prevented it from finding a place amongst all the Space Marine Legions though and demand for the new chassis is incredibly high.

Designed by Simon Egan and Will Hayes, the Emperor’s Children Legion Contemptor Dreadnought is packed with details themed specifically to this honoured Legion, such as the Palatine Aquila proudly borne upon the sarcophagus of the Dreadnought, and the unique ‘Phoenician’ pattern helm granted as a mark of valour among the Emperor’s Children.

A fantastic centrepiece for both Heresy-era Legion forces and 41st Millennium Chaos Space Marine armies, the Emperor’s Children Legion Contemptor Dreadnought is available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday 1st March.

Like the contemptor but it does look very similar to some of the stuff from scibor minis, mind you it is based on the HH card game pics so i guess it makes sense.

Im looking forward to the BL/FW tie-in, i can only think its some kind of graphic novel with a few models being made but not sure yet :)
