The Lord-Veritant is finally here for the Stormcast Eternals and this guy is definitely no cream puff. He is pretty much an anti wizard model.

The instructions are the typical multi-colored computer generated instructions that we have grown accustom to from Games Workshop. This kit doesn’t seem to be too customization, perhaps the head and staff can be switched out.

This is a two sprue kit that makes up both of the models and includes two 40mm bases.

Check out this video to see what we have to say about the rules.

“Witchfinder of the Stormcast Eternals, the Lord-Veritant is the eye of Sigmar, the inescapable wrath of the heavens. The blazing light of his Lantern of Abjuration is the terror of evil magic-users across the mortal realms, as he hunts out and systematically destroys them and their vile, corrupting influence. Leading the faithful to battle, the Lord-Veritant cuts a ruthless path through cultists and daemons until the land is cleansed of their presence.

This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble one Lord-Veritant of the Stormcast Eternals, with Gryph-hound. He carries the Lantern of Abjuration and a Judgement Blade, and comes supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base.”

  • Drasek

    Also of note, the sprue that has the cloak on it, is the exact same sprue that comes with the Lord-Castellant.

    • Statham

      This. They clearly worked with existing CAD stuff for this, which is slightly disappointing, but at the same time, I get the feeling you’re not meant to include all of the Lord models in one army, unless you’re going for a specific formation, so the use of the same sculpt to some extent probably doesn’t hurt.

      • rtheom

        I agree, it’s a little disappointing to see the exact same sprue used twice, but we already saw this with Skarbrand, and they’ve at least provided enough difference in the front details that he does actually look quite different, despite having the same base.

        • Statham

          Skarbrand does look totally different, to be fair. His chestplate, arms, wings, face and weaponry are all different, his legs are different, etc. The only thing about him that makes no sense is charging more than the standard Bloodthirster, given you can make three variants to his one.

          • rtheom

            Well, they’ve always charged based on how many they think you’ll buy. It’s why Terminators have always cost a lot more than regular Tacticals despite being not too different in terms of design and plastic quantity. They figure you’re only going to buy one Skarbrand while you’re likely to buy multiple Bloodthirsters.

  • Beefcake the mighty

    As far as chubby space marine drag queens with pidgeon dogs go, this one easily makes my top 5.

    • DeadlyYellow

      Ye joke, but they make for some awesome conversions. Bit closer in size to terminators though, and bloody expensive– A PPM of $10 USD for a Stormcast as opposed to $4 for a marine.

      • Beefcake the mighty

        Oh I don’t play 40k. Regular or diet ­čśů

        • DeadlyYellow

          Eh, don’t really need to play to enjoy some of the work put out there. Assuming that’s your thing, of course.

          I enjoy seeing what other, more talented individuals are capable of doing. Gives me prospects.

  • Beefcake the mighty

    Fair point. I just can’t help but rib space marines since a new one comes out every 30 seconds ­čśë
