What happens when the Ultramarines get their hands on the stylish chassis of a Contemptor Dreadnought? It might go a little something, like this…

The Ultramarines are next in line to get a Contemptor Dreadnought. And like everything the Ultramarines get their hands on, they are covering it in glue and rolling it, Katamari Damacy style, through a box of their best decorations, ornaments, and symbols to see what sticks. So far it seems to be working–come take a look at the upcoming Ultramarines Contemptor Dreadnought.

As you can see, it’s got the sleeker profile of most Contemptors, and it is dripping with Ultramarines heraldry. The model up here is fitted for 40K, but you can customize your Contemptor with any of the weapon arms from Forge World, whether you’re looking to field your big new friend as a Heresy or 40K unit. Codex: Space Marines gives them rules for the current era, but these dreadnoughts are a blast from the past. Check out the esquisite detail that drives home how the Ultramarines have made this their own.

The dreadnought is up for Pre-Order now, so if you’re looking to add a sleeker Contemptor to your army, now’s your chance.

What do you think of the new model? Let us know in the comments!
