Questions always arise from new books, and Forgeworld is always gracious enough to answer these questions when they come up. The questions center on the use of Contemptor Dreadnoughts not being mentioned for Blood Angels and Space Wolves in IA2, when they were previously.
This is an email sent in by Father Gabe to Forgeworld asking a series of questions on Contemptor Dreadnoughts. Again, thanks to Father Gabe for sharing these with us. Its greatly appreciated.

I am contacting you regarding changes within the recently released Imperial Armour 2, 2nd Edition book and the Imperial Armour: Apocalypse. Particularly, I am confused on the omission of the Contemptor Dreadnoughts no longer being allowed in Space Wolf or Blood Angel armies.
Both books were published in 2013 but dramatic differences in changes to the availability of units.
1) Concerning Contemptor Dreadnoughts: Can Blood Angels and Space Wolves still have access to this via Imperial Armour 2, 2nd Edition or do these armies utilize Imperial Armor Apocalypse (2013 edition)?
2) If Contemptor Dreadnoughts are available via Imperial Armour 2, 2nd Edition; is this minor issue that will be FAQ / Updated?
3) If neither of these options are the answer does this mean that Blood Angels and Space Wolves no longer have access to Contemptor Dreadnoughts via either book?
Hi Father Gabe,
We passed your question onto the rules team and they came back with.
Imperial Armour: Apocalypse and Imperial Armour 2, Second Edition are both current books. If you wish to field Chapter-specific Contemptor Dreadnoughts, please use the rules in Imperial Armour: Apocalypse to do so, as nothing in Imperial Armour 2, Second Edition contradicts or overides this option.
