“Befitting their status as morbid cybernetic chariots for fallen Space Marine heroes, Contemptor Dreadnoughts are often adorned in the iconography of their Legion as a sign of respect to fallen pilots. These walking monuments of destruction dominate the battlefields of the Age of Darkness – and now the remaining 12 Legions can upgrade their plastic Contemptors.”

With this last set of 12 that completes all the available legion upgrade packs for the Contemptor Dreadnoughts. While these are designed for the Horus Heresy Era if you’re a fan of the Contemptor Dreadnoughts in 40k, there really no reason you can’t add one of these upgrades to your existing army. It would make an awesome “Relic” for your specific chapter and they just look cool!
