No longer able to fight unaided, the still-living mortal remains of a Legions greatest warriors may be interred within a Contemptor Dreadnought to continue their service. A large number of these advanced Dreadnoughts were destroyed during the dark days of The Horus Heresy, but some survived and are still in service in the Space Marine Chapters and Chaos Space Marine warbands of the 41st Millennium.

This Contemptor Dreadnought has been marked with the icons and insignia of the Thousand Sons Legion. It may be taken in Legiones Astartes armies in Horus Heresy games using the rules presented in The Horus Heresy Legiones Astartes: Crusade Army List.

Contemptor Dreadnoughts can also be taken as part of a Space Marines army in standard games of Warhammer 40,000, for which the rules can be found in Imperial Armour Volume Two – War Machines of the Adeptus Astartes, Second Edition or in a Chaos Space Marines army, for which rules can be found in Imperial Armour Volume Thirteen – War Machines of the Lost and the Damned.

The Thousand Sons Legion Contemptor Dreadnought is a complete multi-part resin kit – weapon arms shown are not included and are available to purchase separately.

THOUSAND SONS ACHEAN PATTERN HEADS £11.50

99550102242_ThousandSonsAcheanHead01

Whilst standard patterns of armour were shared across the Legiones Astartes, variations on these templates surfaced in most Legions. Achean pattern armour arose as a local variation of Mk IV ‘Maximus’ battle plate, produced for the Thousand Sons Legion by the forges local to Prospero.

More stylised than their standard armour, Achean pattern battle plate was most often worn by Legion veterans.

This upgrade set comprises ten ornate resin Achean pattern armour heads.

This is a multi-part resin upgrade kit.

THOUSAND SONS ACHEAN PATTERN SHOULDER PADS £10

99550102243_ThousandSonsAcheanPads01

More stylised than their standard armour, Achean pattern battle plate was most often worn by Legion veterans.

This upgrade set comprises ten ornate resin Achean pattern shoulder pads, five featuring a Thousand Sons Legion symbol, and five featuring a scarab.

This is a multi-part resin upgrade kit.

  • Andrew Thomas

    spiffy. Now what do they do?

    • Local Ork

      I assume they move extra inch per turn.

  • Theik

    I can’t get over the fact that I find these things to be horrible looking. Like… thousand sons are by far my favorite original legion, but they just look… ugh.

    • LordRao

      Never been a fan of the humpty dumpty dred, and now he has… quasi Egyptian, erm, stuff??? I’ll take the post-Heresy 1K Sons any day.

      • Local Ork

        I think FW put them on clearance some time ago. Such sad moment…

    • TDog

      I wasn’t the biggest fan of them at first, but the look grew on me. I think they look better en masse than individually.

  • ZeeLobby

    Er… Dunno how i feel about that dreadnaught. I mean i know this is supposed to be all pre-tzeentch, but i expected a little more scrollwork and runes. Nothing chaosy, but mystical would have been nice. The model looks like something that could have been converted from the basic contemptor.

  • Keith Wilson

    cmon book 7

  • Thomas Gardiner

    Kind of… Love it tbh. I’m really digging this.

  • Firemind

    Didn’t these come out like…2 months ago? they’ve been for sale on fw site for a while.

    • BT

      Dred is new I believe.

      • mike

        The shoulders and heads are new as well. The other ones that have already been out are different.

  • usGrant7977

    I think the new helms look better than the older ones fo BaC. The contemptor is a little plain looking, but still nice. I would like some other culture aside from Egyptian to guide their look. Sometimes they use Aztec. That could be a alternative. Or perhaps something Chinese or Indian.

  • TDog

    Yes!!! Now all they need are Custodes and Sisters of Silence and everything will be truly awesome!

  • Emprah

    I wonder what that metallic red paint is!

    • Chris. K Cook

      Glazes and stuff

  • GiftoftheMagi

    I don’t like the color…and that dread looks….basic? Not bad but just basic. A bit underwhelming compared to the other Chapter versions. The Helmets and Chestpieces are decent.
