Telemon Heavy Dreadnought
The Telemon Heavy Dreadnought is a type of massive Dreadnought used by the Custodian Guard during the Great Crusade and Horus Heresy. It is unknown if this type is still in use in the 41st Millennium.
During the Heresy, fewer than a handful of Telemon Dreadnoughts were found within the Custodes, each intended to stand sentinel over its charges no matter the forces brought against it. The honor of interment in one of the few existing Telemon sarcophagi is awarded to only the most celebrated warriors. Rare is the foe who can stand against the array of esoteric, hand-crafted weapons that grace its chassis or the ferocious will and warrior skill of the master Custodian interred within. The Telemon Heavy Dreadnought was equipped with a mix of arm-mounted Arachnus Storm Cannons, Iliastus Accelerator Culverins, or Telemon Caesti Power Fists with built-in Plasma Projectors; in addition, it sported a back-mounted Spiculus Bolt Launcher. For protection, it is equipped with a Refractor Field.
