My previous thoughts where that Ferrus Manus was the best so far in the character series. Well not anymore. Behold the Warmaster, Horus Lupercal
Horus was the Primarch of the Luna Wolves Legion, later re-named the Sons of Horus in his honour, and greatest of his superhuman kind. A tactical genius and charismatic battle leader, Horus proved himself over the course of the Great Crusade as a warlord second only to the Emperor whom he served and called father.So it was that when the Emperor stood apart from the burden of command of the Great Crusade, it was Horus that he named Warmaster in his stead. But ambition and pride festered within the Warnaster's heart and at Davin he fell, and the lies and corruption of the Warp infected his soul. From then on he plotted with dark forces to usurp the Emperor's throne and become the master of Mankind, throwing the galaxy into bloody civil war.Horus the Warmaster, designed by Simon Egan, is an amazingly detailed multi-part resin model armed with The Warmaster's Talon and the great power maul Worldbreaker and is equipped with the Serpent's Scales. This latest addition to our Horus Heresy Character Series stands atop a scenic base depicting a ruined Imperial balustrade and stone staircase and is also supplied with a smaller removable base for gaming use. As with all of our Character series models, Horus is supplied in a handsome presentation box.This model is available to pre-order now and will despatched from Monday 14th April. You can find out more about how Simon Egan approached this most iconic of Horus Heresy modelling projects here.And Book 3 has been announced for the Northern Hemisphere spring. Shutup and take my money!
