New from Forgeworld today is the Praetor Armoured Assault Launcher and the Kheres Assault Cannon, Plasma Cannon, and Heavy Bolter arm designed to go onto the Contemptor Pattern Dreadnought.

Any of these arms are nice pieces, and make me wonder if they would fit onto a more standard dreadnought for some conversion work. The Praetor Armoured Assault Launcher is just huge. It looks like just the launcher itself is nearly as large as a chimera.

The ancient and prized Contemptor Dreadnought, once a mainstay of the Astartes Legions during the Great Crusade, is capable of fielding many different heavy weapons. The Contemptor Pattern Plasma Cannon and Contemptor Pattern Heavy Bolter are both precursors to the weapons systems found on the MkIV and MkV Dreadnoughts, and the Kheres Pattern Assault Cannon is considered by some techno-savants to be the forerunner to the Assault Cannon carried by Space Marine Terminators.

The Praetor Armoured Assault Launcher combines the armoured might of the Crassus super-heavy hull with the long-range capabilities of an immense multiple missile launcher. The design, sanctified and approved by the Adeptus Mechanicus, was discovered deep within the cogitator stacks of the recently-reconsecrated Forge World Zhao-Arkkad.
