The Adeptus Custodes are a glorious and much celebrated force. In the earliest days of the Imperium they marched to war alongside the Emperor himself, presenting a magnificent spectacle which echoed the majesty of the master of Mankind. Just as their weapons and armour have always been fashioned to reflect his martial glory, so too are the proud standards known as vexillas, which are borne to war by some of the most veteran Custodians. Few shield companies march to war without vexillas rising above them.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Vexilus Praetor in Allarus Terminator Armour. He is clad in spectacular, expertly-crafted Allarus Terminator armour – this is covered in finely sculpted sigils of the Emperor, with Imperial eagles, lightning bolts, gemstones and filigree covering every surface. He is armed with a wrist-mounted balistus grenade launcher and a misericordia, but eschews the guardian spear and castellan axe of other Custodians in favour of an enormous ornate vexilla. This stands almost twice the height of the praetor himself (minus the helmet plume), and is an inspiring sight indeed, featuring a huge double-headed eagle with gemstones, spikes and heavy tasseled ropes. He can be modelled with or without his helmet.
As well as the Vexilus Praetor, the kit also makes 2 Allarus Custodians, or 1 Allarus Custodian and a Shield-Captain. The Allarus Custodians can also be armed with a choice of guardian spear or castellan axe, along with balistus grenade launcher and misericordia. The Shield-Captain has his own shoulder pads, thigh plates, helmet plume and misericordia variant.
This kit comes as 73 components, and is supplied with 3 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
