Bray’arth Ashmantle – Salamanders Venerable Dreadnought
The armouriums of the Salamanders Chapter contain many ancient relics; some bearing proud histories of glory and honour while others are burdened with darker legends. Sokhar Bray’arth, once a Captain of the Salamanders 4th Company, is the current occupant of the ancient relic-Dreadnought known as the Iron Dragon, fashioned it is said by the hands of the revered Salamanders Primarch, Vulkan, himself.
Bray’arth was interred within this revered artefact after succumbing to the grievous wounds he suffered during the now infamous purging of the moons of Ymgarl of its Genestealer taint. His strength of will combined with the dark machine-spirit of the Dreadnought in which he is entombed make for a potent warrior on the battlefield.

Salamanders Venerable Dreadnought Bray’arth Ashmantle is a unique MkIV Ironclad Dreadnought, designed by Simon Egan and Will Hayes. The model is packed with intricate detail including ornately carved and segmented armour plates, symbols of the Promethean Cult, and even a jaw-droppingly detailed bas-relief on the Dreadnought’s shoulder armour of Bray’arth’s death duel with a horde of Ymgarl-strain Genestealers.

Simon and Will have also designed two unique arm weapons for this new Dreadnought - which are sold separately. The Left Dreadfire Close Combat Arm and Right Dreadfire Close Combat Arm represent the Iron Dragon’s potent and unique armament. These arms can also be used with the full range of Forge World Dreadnoughts.
Full rules for Bray’arth Ashmantle can be found in Imperial Armour Volume 10: The Badab War - Part Two, and all three releases are available to pre-order now for despatch in the week commencing 25th July.
