Legio Custodes Dreadnoughts (Contemptor-Galatus)
Similar to the Contemptor Dreadnoughts of the Legiones Astartes, the Contemptor-Galatus Dreadnought is a markedly superior war machine. The unrivalled skills of the warrior entombed within its sarcophagus notwithstanding, the Contemptor-Galatus is stronger, faster and better armoured than the more common Contemptors used by the Space Marines. Designed to provide an anchor for a Legio Custodes battleline, the Contemptor-Galatus was armed in similar fashion to the Custodes Sentinel Guard wielding a huge Galatus Warblade with its inbuilt twin-linked Infernus Incinerator, and equipped with a vastly enlarged version of the Custodes Praesidium Shield. Already able to withstand heavy assaults with its thick armour and refractor field, the Praesidium Shield allows the Contemptor-Galatus to stand nigh impregnable, enduring the enemy onslaught and reaping a murderous toll with its massive Power Sword.

Legio Custodes Dreadnoughts (Contemptor-Achillus)
At the time of the outbreak of the Horus Heresy, the most widely employed Dreadnought by the Legio Custodes was the Contemptor-Achillus Dreadnought, a general battle unit which combined phenomenal strength and speed with the echoes of the interned Custodes' own unmatched martial skill. A fearsome example of Dreadnought technology, this Achillus is armed with the massive Dreadspear, an enlarged Dreadnought-sized version of the Custodes' Guardian Spear. The Dreadnought is also armed with two wrist-mounted Storm BoltersInfernus Incinerators or Adrathic Destructors

Ancients of the Legions (Leviathan Dreadnought)

Created in limited numbers in the latter days of the Great Crusade of the late 30th Millennium, the Leviathan Pattern Siege Dreadnought or more simply, the Leviathan Dreadnought, was developed in secret on Terra, away from the pervasive oculars of the Mechanicum. Its massive frame incorporates hybridised technologies, some dating back into the dim past of humanity. Towering over later Imperial combat walker patterns, this heavily armoured Dreadnought is savagely powerful. It was designed for siege warfare and primarily armed with close combat and support weaponry that can rend buildings, vehicles and flesh alike; though it is no less effective when armed with the powerful and esoteric short-ranged weaponry uniquely developed for it. The Leviathan's oversized Atomantic Reactor allows it to bear weapons more powerful than other classes of Dreadnought, and also powers reinforced energy fields that surpass those developed for the Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought. Power has its cost though, and the systems of the Leviathan place a lethal level of strain on the minds of its occupants. Space Marines who find themselves interred within a Leviathan will pay a heavy toll; either with their life, or their reason.

Those few examples of Relic Leviathan Dreadnoughts which survive into the late 41st Millennium are ancient and terrible relics, rarely spoken of and rarely deployed, dreaded as much as they are revered by those Chapters in whose armoury vaults they reside and stand empty until direst need. The tormented and ravaged minds of those Astartes interred within are driven to the edge of madness by the little-understood mechanisms unique to the Leviathan, trapped in gore-soaked dreams of the lost Age of Darkness during the Horus Heresy which haunt the machines themselves, and soon suffer a final dissolution owing to the terrible strain the Leviathan inflicts on those who would dare to master it. Only the full authority of a Master of the Chapter is sufficient to unleash these terrifying machines in war, as where they strike and what they kill is as often determined by their dark dreaming as it is the will of their commanders.

Developed in the highest secrecy not on 
Mars, but on Terra, the Leviathan was an alternative development of the highly successful Contemptor Dreadnought. It represents hybrid technologies, some of which it is believed date back to the Age of Strife, which rumours had it were created by the hand of the Emperor directly. The resources required to produce one were immense, equal perhaps even to an Imperial Knight. Made available to the Legiones Astartes only in limited quantities before the outbreak of the Horus Heresy, they were highly valued and recognised as savagely powerful siege and hunter-killer units. They placed an onerous and ultimately lethal strain upon their occupants, the Leviathan's incumbent burning brightly but briefly in their second life. Many in the Mechanicum were deeply uneasy over the design, seeing it as purpose-designed to match and indeed destroy the Mechanicum's own Battle-Automata in some future, unforeseen crisis or dispute between them and the wider Imperium.

During the Horus Heresy, Loyalists with access to Terra were able to obtain new Leviathan Dreadnoughts, although never many, while Traitors and isolated forces were reduced to marshalling their few Leviathans carefully or hunting down the relics of the dead from the battlefields to be re-commissioned.

Armaments 

  • Two Leviathan Siege Claws, each with a built-in Meltagun - The close-combat weapons of the Leviathan Pattern Siege Dreadnought were developed to be even more destructive than those of other Dreadnoughts. The Leviathan Siege Claw was designed to sever flesh and bone, slicing the Leviathan's foe apart in a single cut. It also incorporates a Meltagun and, as with all of the Leviathan's close combat weapons, excels at tearing through the walls of enemy fortifications.
  • Two torso-mounted Heavy Flamers
  • Twin-Linked Volkite Caliver  - A Volkite Caliver is one of an ancient class of weapons whose arcane name is used by the Adeptus Mechanicus to refer to an entire class of powerful thermal ray weapons whose technology is pre-Imperial in origin and dates back to the Age of Strife. These weapons possessed considerable killing power, surpassing most other armaments of their size. Blasts from Volkite Weapons were even known to be able to penetrate the thick ceramite plates of Space Marine Power Armour with one concentrated shot. Volkite Weapons produced a deflagrating attack, in which subsonic combustion caused by a beam of thermal energy propagated through a material by thermodynamic heat transfer so that hot burning material heated the next layer of cold material and ignited it. A Volkite Weapon's heat ray had a devastating effect on organic matter, explosively burning flesh into ash and jetting fire.
  • Leviathan Siege Drill with built-in Meltaguns - The close-combat weapons of the Leviathan Pattern Siege Dreadnought were developed to be even more destructive than those of other Dreadnoughts. The Leviathan Siege Drill was designed to bore straight through the heavy armour of armoured vehicles. It also incorporates a Meltagun and, as with all of the Leviathan’s close-combat weapons, excels at tearing through the walls of enemy fortifications.
  • Three Hunter-Killer Missiles The missile itself is technically a large Krak Missile with added range but the main difference is the that a Hunter-Killer Missile has an onboard Cogitator known as a Logis-Engine.
  • Phosphex Bomb Discharger - This dispenser unleashes Phosphex Bombs upon the target. A Phosphex Bomb and its artillery counterpart, the Medusa Shell, are arcane incendiary weapons utilised by the military forces of the burgeoning Imperium of Man during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy eras. Phosphex was a rare corrosive toxic and incendiary compound utterly inimical to life, deployed both in the form of large canister bombs (called Phosphex Bombs) and heavy artillery shells (the horrific Medusa Shell). It expands on contact with air into a seething, liquid mist which burns with an eerie white-green flame which is attracted to movement. This gelid flame ignites metal and eats relentlessly into living tissue, and cannot be extinguished short of exposure to vacuum. Though highly effective, this horrific weapon was only primarily used as a weapon of last resort.
  • Leviathan Storm Cannon - The ranged weapons of the Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought were designed to be used at closer range than those carried by most classes of dreadnought. The Leviathan Storm Cannon is a rapid firing multi-barrelled weapon, purpose built to scythe down infantry and clear out the defenders of tactical objectives.
  • Cyclonic Melta Lance - This rapid cycling melta beam weapon is utilised for fortress breaching, enabling a Leviathan Siege Pattern Dreadnought to cut through the thickest plated armour with ease.
  • Grav Flux Bombard - The ranged weapons of the Leviathan pattern Siege Dreadnought were designed to be used at closer range than those carried by most classes of dreadnought. The Leviathan Grav-flux Bombard creates a spiralling vortex of gravitation-torsion force. It is a fortress-breaching weapon which can reduce the toughest armour to twisted scrap and crush anything living beyond recognition.

Ancients of the Legions (Deredeo Dreadnought)
The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought is an Imperial cybernetic combat walker used by the Space Marine Legions during the days of the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy in the late 30th and early 31st Millennia. The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought served as a cybernetic sarcophagus for an Astartes Warrior who had been so badly wounded in battle that his only chance for continued service to the Emperor lay in being interred within the cybernetic sarcophagus of a Dreadnought. The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought, like much of the technology developed at the dawn of the Imperium of Man, is larger and more powerful than the more common Castraferrum Pattern Dreadnoughts used in the present day.

The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought was developed during the Great Crusade for use by the Space Marine Legions. This pattern was developed as an outgrowth of the same project to improve upon the fusion of Terran and Mechanicum technology which gave birth to the first Legiones Astartes Dreadnoughts, such as the Castraferrum and Lucifer Patterns. It shares many core components and systems with the hugely successful Contemptor class, but rather than a general assault unit, the Deredeo is an expressly designed heavy weapons platform, intended to combine superior firepower with the flexibility and durability of a Dreadnought chassis. Deployed in limited numbers for each of the Legions, the Deredeo was treated as a specialist unit as it proved highly resource intensive to produce and maintain, but its undoubted survivability and killing power saw a resurgence in its use after the initial wave of internecine conflict during the outbreak of the Horus Heresy, and was in high demand by Traitor and Loyalist alike from the few Forge Worlds that produced this rare pattern.

The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought is a dedicated heavy support walker, and though it shares many core components and systems with the more general assault-based Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought, the Deredeo was designed purely for ranged support. The Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought, with its formidable carrying capacity and battlefield stability, was used as a test-bed platform for a number of advanced Legiones Astartes weapons systems, created from the wisdom won during the two centuries of the Great Crusade. The standard loadout for the Deredeo consisted of a set of twin-linked Anvilus Pattern Autocannons, known as an Anvilus Autocannon Battery, and a set of carapace-mounted twin-linked Heavy Bolters. The Heavy Bolters could be replaced with a set of twin-linked Heavy Flamers and an Aiolos Missile Launcher could be mounted atop its carapace. With its formidable carrying capacity and battlefield stability, the Deredeo was used as a test-bed for a number of advanced weapon systems. Chief amongst its anti-vehicle armaments was the Arachnus Heavy Lascannon Battery. The Deredeo could also be outfitted with smoke launchers, a searchlight, and extra armour plating or armoured ceramite plating.

The Deredeo Pattern shares the Contemptor Pattern's system of defensive energy field generators inside its armour plating and is powered by the enhanced Atomantic Power Core within. The Helical Targetting Array's advanced Augury and sophisticated banks of Combat-cogitators allow the Deredeo to track and destroy even the swiftest of targets with ease. However, due to the Helical Array's delicacy and ravenous consumption of power, the Deredeo must be immobile while the system is in operation. The Deredeo also sports the Atomantic Pavaise, a highly experimental system developed by the Clave Nuathac sub-cult Magi of the Forge World of Anvilus. The Atomantic Pavaise was created with Zone Mortalis operations in mind, and the idea of turning the Deredeo Pattern Dreadnought into a mobile bulwark against the heaviest enemy weapons fire.

If i'm forced to use none GamesWorkshop or Black Library artwork, I will ask for promission and then put a Link in the description to the Original set.

If I can't Find the Original artist i'll put in the description that I didn't Draw this.


I would also like to state that I have never claimed to be and artist and I have never claimed any link to these artworks.

Also to all these Key-Board Warriors and Social Justice Crusaders that keep on complaining about how "I'm Re-posting others work", BACK OFF!!! if the Original owners wish me to remove their images then I will do just that and I'll apologies on their channels, But until then Please keep your VENOM!!! to yourselves.

Just wondering. With your Legion info pieces, where are you getting the character info from? I have 5 of the Forge World books, and they're not linning up with the one's here.

The general Legion history, up to the finding of their Primarch I know is taken from the books. So I'm just kinda wondering. Not complaining either.

To be honest I been try to find out the full details of most of these Characters.

I don't own any of the Forge World books so most of the character info is coming from people messaging me.

I'm a Fan of Warhammer 40k but I don't claim to know every detail.

I have notice you Information and "Featured" the on the page.

Thank for you Help Mate!

Knowing every detail should be left to the people who own the game itself, so... And it is hard, and expensive, to get Forge World anything. Bu they are top notch if you ever do.

And I did notice that. Thanks. Though, I won't have one for every one. Some don't have much to go on (Dark Angels and Blood Angels will be getting the full treatment in the next book. No idea when it comes to the White Scars Legion.) Others, I just ddn't have the relevent book yet.
