The Furioso Dreadnought is a variant used exclusively by the Blood Angels and their Successor chapters. Designed for close assaults, these heavily armoured suits are no mere weapon of war, but an honour reserved for heroes of the chapter. Interred within an armoured sarcophagus, a mortally wounded warrior is connected to the life support devices of the Dreadnought, his senses meshed with the sensors and cameras of the machine, his brain wired to control systems that aim its weapons. The Furioso variant wields deadly close combat weapons, either massive talons or crushing fists.
Rarely, an interred warrior will fall to the Black Rage and the colours of his chapter that adorn the armour of his dreadnought will be painted over with the black paint and red saltires that mark him as a cursed member of the Death Company. Such Death Company Dreadnoughts are terrifying to behold, almost impossible to restrain once the blood of enemies is in the air.
Even more uncommonly, a Librarian of the Chapter will be mortally wounded and interred into a Dreadnoughts sarcophagus. Their powers undimmed by their confinement, Librarian Dreadnoughts act as leaders on the battlefield. Equally capable of dispatching foes with their massive force weapons as with their terrifyingly potent psychic powers, a Librarian dreadnought can stride unhindered through firepower that would have laid his once comparatively frail body low.
The Furioso Dreadnought is an impressively detailed miniature, carefully designed to represent such a formidable warrior. Different armour plates and Sarcophagi allow you to build any of the three variants with a choice of weaponry. Whether tank crushing power fists, blood talons to tear a swathe through ranks of the enemy, or magna-grapples to drag your enemies vehicles around like so much scrap metal, the Furioso Dreadnought will be an outstanding addition to your force.
This multi-part plastic kit contains 68 components, including three sarcophagi, which can be used to make a Furioso Dreadnought, a Librarian Dreadnought or a Death Company Dreadnought. It also includes all of the weapon options available to these mighty war machines: power fists, blood talons, a frag cannon, magna-grapples and a force weapon for the Librarian Dreadnought. Includes a Citadel 60mm Round Textured base.
