Back to News Listing Legacy of the Weirdboy - Introducing... the Venerable Dreadnought

Posted: Friday, May 12, 2017 by Marcello Mariani

Type: News

Veterans of countless crusades, with hundreds if not thousands of years of experience, the most hardened warriors of the chapter are a living inspiration for any of their brothers.

Losing such invaluable combatants in battle is unacceptable and, when mortally wounded, they are instead entombed into ceramite reinforced sarcophages.

Through this enforced coma, they keep on serving with their combat skills and wisdom in the name of their chapter.

 

 

 

 

 

Usually housed in an artificial slumber on the Fang, the largest fortress on Fenris, the Space Wolves’ home planet, these heroes are awoken only in the direst moments of the chapter.

 

Thanks to their unquestionable prowess in combat, such champions will carve with their Fenrisian Great Axe and Blizzard Shield a path of bodies through any enemy foolish enough to stand in their way.

 

In game terms the Venerable Dreadnought is a very powerful melee unit. His Blizzard Shield gives him even more protection than a normal dreadnought and his Fenrisian Great Axe can hit a whole squad of men at once as well as being very effective against armour. His axe also inflicts heavy morale damage so he can easily break units with a few hits.

 

As a veteran unit he has 3 attacks so even with his Storm Bolter he is effective against squads of men at mid range.

 

He also has a grenade launcher so can get grenade ability upgrades. He is an unstoppable force, so be careful if you’ll ever meet a Venerable Dreadnought on the battlefield!
