I don't believe it has rules in any books yet, just the PDF (which from my perspective is ideal---no book to buy):

The rules for this amazing creation are available in the most recent 30k space marine army list book, which I own and can share.

Does the book have 40k approved rules, as opposed to 30k?

No, the only rules for inclusion in 40K Space Marine armies is the free PDF. Nothing in the 30K books are directly transferable to 40K except the Titans.

And I run my 28mm leviathan as a knight castigator.
I do not remember killing this model (Thanatar)?!? Was it with my Necrons and how could I have accomplished that in one turn?

I really like my 28mm as a knight!

I think Warren took some wounds off of it and then you whacked it with either destroyers or the necron sniper dudes. It has only survived one game that I've put it in.

And yes, that was the game in which I vortexed my own aquila strongpoint.
