Carab Culln, Chapter Master of the Red Scorpions is getting new life (sort of) in 8th Edition–we hope he enjoys his new home.

Now we know who the new Red Scorpion that we saw teased earlier is–it’s none other than Carab Culln, former Chapter Master of the Red Scorpion. It’s been a storied career for this hero–he’s gone from Captain to Chapter Master, and now he has a lovely forever home as he’s been interred in a Leviathan Dreadnought. He’s the very latest release for the Warhammer 40K Character Series, and you’ll be able to pre-order him soon from Forge World.

Carab Culln, Chapter Master of the Red Scorpions is back as you’ve never seen him before. One of the most exciting things about being a Red Scorpions fan is following the progression of the Chapter as the 41st Millennium grinds on. We’ve seen Carab Culln as Captain of the Red Scorpions First Company, as Chapter Master, and now, we’re getting him interred in a Leviathan Dreadnought.

Carab Culln the Risen combines the might of a Leviathan chassis with some custom weapons utilising 41st Millennium tech, like a twin assault cannon. He’s a fantastic leader for a Red Scorpions army and a great way to continue the ongoing story of this hero of the Imperium.

Looks like former Chapter Master Culln is getting settled in to his new digs–his be-laureled helmet gazes out on the enemies of the Imperium as he brings heavy weaponry to bear against his foes–we know he’s going to be based off of a Leviathan Chassis, which probably means 14 wounds, 2+ WS/BS, and it looks like our friend there is armed with a Siege Claw and a twin assault cannon. Here’s the statline for just the regular assault cannon:

I imagine a twin assault cannon is probably Heavy 12 with the same stats as before. And strength 6 shots will make anyone feel a little nervous–that coupled with the Siege Claw make me think that Culln here is particularly suited to dealing with heavy infantry. Or mowing down mobs like nobody’s business. At any rate–we’re looking forward to seeing what Culln gets up to, and following the unfolding saga of the Red Scorpions.

Also wouldn’t be surprised if that’s a Havoc launcher or the like up there above his head.

    I just want to see the Chapter Rules.

      Agreed, I converted a small force of true scale Red Scorpions using primaris. They look awesome but the nature of their chapter tactic in 7th has made me leery of building too many as tac sgts had narcesiums. Not sure how to build them until I hear what it will be. It’d be cool if all sgts (or just troop sgts) function as apothecaries. But maybe not as they couldn’t shoot or fight. We’ll see, soon I guess. ::Knock on wood::

    when did Cullin die?

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Between Badab and the new present. 😉

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Wow, I want to play Red Scorpions now

    He started out as Veteran Sergeant Culln, model-wise, if you remember.

      So really 7th and 8th are really the story of Culln. We see everything through his eyes

      • D. B.

        It’s a bit like Damnation Crusade, if you have read it.

  • Jeremy Larson

    Hope that gun arm has something special, because I’ve found assault cannons to be fairly lack-luster.

    • Philip Estabrook

      Yeah, it very much depends. I have always run very heavily on the assault cannon front. My normal 2000 point main army featured 6-10. I too found them quite mediocre but I think I was trying to use them in their anti-vehicle role rather than the anti infantry one. The last three games I have swapped to using them as anti-infantry and they have shined. You can annihilate the better part of a unit with 2-4 then allow morale to finish the remainder off. They aren’t the catch all they were in my opinion. I had to adjust my own thinking!

    Hssss! The traitor from Badab! Ptfu!

    Looking sweet though…

    • wibbling

      Aren’t you thinking of Lugft Huron? The Bloke who became Huron Blackheart?

      • Rafał Pytlak

        You mean the man who was right the whole time and was out back by the corrupt imperium of man and was attacked (unprovoked) by them? Now who is the traitor here?

  • Diagoras

    Take notes, GW. THIS is how you Dreadnought.

  • Brother Eldrian

    Twin Assault cannon is what Sammael rides on his Landspeeder.

    • Marcus Clark

      + Twin Heavy Bolt Guns and he can charge into combat wielding his sword.
      Though I really wish they would change out either the Heavy Bolt Guns or Assault cannons for Twin Plasma Cannons, Plasma is Dark Angels thing

  • Mike Holmberg

    the twin heavy flamers is pretty standard in 40k leviathans dreads so its not really a surprise

  • Damien 1.0

    Hssss! The traitor from Badab! Ptfu!Looking sweet though…
