The Ballistus Dreadnought, featured in the Warhammer 40,000: Leviathan boxed set, draws inspiration from the classic Furioso Dreadnought while incorporating the loadout of the original metal Dark Angels Dreadnought. When the transition was made from metal to plastic kits, the twin lascannons and missile launcher options were included in the box. Unlike the Castra Ferrum, the Ballistus Dreadnought possesses longer legs, resembling those of a long-distance runner and creating a striking presence when it emerges under the noon sun.
In addition to its formidable armament, which includes twin storm bolters, the Ballistus Dreadnought boasts enough firepower to make an Ork envious and can also employ stomping attacks to ward off nearby threats. While it may face challenges against dedicated melee adversaries like the Trygon, it possesses enough capability to prevent a random Termagant from engaging it in close combat.
