Primaris Captain $35
Space Marine Captains are both superlative warriors and strategically gifted commanders who lead Space Marine companies into battle. Those Primaris Captains who favour Mk X Tacticus armour are amongst the most determined and unstoppable of their ilk, and they let nothing keep them from their duty.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Primaris Captain. His Mk X Tacticus power armour is larger and more powerful than the armour of his predecessors, and he carries in his right hand a choice of master-crafted bolt rifle or master-crafted stalker pattern bolt rifle, with a box magazine and overcharger. His left hand can be modelled wielding a power sword, or pointing out the enemy for his Space Marines to obliterate. His billowing cloak sits under his backpack, above which is an impressive iron halo – adding to this detail is a sculpted Imperial eagle on the right shoulder pad, and sculpted laurels on the leg plates. There is a choice of two different heads – one bare, and the other is helmeted with a targeter over one eye – and his left shoulder pad has been left blank and smooth, meaning your preferred Chapter iconography can be easily added.
The Primaris Captain comes as 21 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base. The kit also includes an Ultramarines-Character Transfer Sheet, which features Captain, Chaplain, Librarian and Lieutenant iconography.
Eyes blazing and fists crackling with roiling energies, Space Marine Librarians stride into battle to destroy their foes. Some hurl blasts of warp-force that crush their victims to paste, while others twist the flow of time itself or revitalise their brothers with incredible dynamism. However they choose to fight, all Librarians are potent psykers, harnessing their potent mutation and a force to defend Humanity.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Primaris Librarian. Clad in Mk X power armour, his accoutrements are many and elaborate, from his ornate multi-layered cloak to the detailed wiring going into his psychic hood. He comes armed with a force sword in his right hand, and features a holstered bolt pistol along with a whole host of interesting trinkets – a padlocked book on his belt (potentially holding some galaxy-shaking secrets…), several large keys, purity seals on his cloak and backpack and a clasp featuring an Imperial Eagle.
The Librarian comes with a choice of two heads – one helmeted with a psychic hood and one bare-headed, with the terminals of the psychic hood clearly visible. The right shoulder pad and belt buckle feature ram’s heads – the insignia of the Librarius – and the left shoulder pad is blank and smooth, meaning the markings of your preferred Chapter can be easily applied.
The Primaris Librarian comes as 20 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base. The kit also includes an Ultramarines-Character Transfer Sheet, which features Captain, Chaplain, Librarian and Lieutenant iconography.
A Tau Empire novel
Fresh from his victory on Arkunasha, the young Commander Farsight leads a crusade to reclaim colonies lost to mankind’s Imperium. But stiff resistance will test him to his limits, and beyond.
READ IT BECAUSE
Phil Kelly continues his look at the life of Commander Farsight with his first campaign against the full might of the Imperium, and shows how the Tau Empire’s technological superiority fares against Imperial grit.
The tau are a mysterious alien race, diametrically opposed to the Imperium of Man in every possible way – in their mastery of technology, methods of warfare and social structure. Yet in galactic terms they are a young race, and naive when it comes to the manipulations of Chaos. When promising young Commander Farsight is promoted to lead a crusade across the Damocles Gulf to reclaim the tau’s lost colonies from mankind, the mood is one of optimism. With their mighty fleet, and superior weapons and machines, how can their endeavour possibly fail? However, despite a parade of early successes, Commander Farsight soon faces enemies he wasn’t anticipating, and finds not only his courage but also his soul tested to the very limit.
Written by Phil Kelly.
