The Chaplain Order, established towards the end of the Great Crusade, was intended to create a cadre of fearsome veteran warriors who would enforce a cohesion of doctrine and belief in the scattered and increasingly idiosyncratic Legions. These officers are a fanatical exemplar of the martial oaths of the Astartes, wielding their deadly badge of office – the Crozius Arcanum – as they inspire their allies on the battlefield.
This multipart plastic kit builds one Legion Cataphractii Praetor and one Legion Chaplain Consul. These each make ideal leaders for a Legiones Astartes force, and can lend support to larger armies where needed. Clad in formidable Cataphractii Terminator armour, the Praetor can survive a barrage of firepower to strike back with his roaring chainfist and devastating combi-melta. He can alternatively be fielded as a Legion Cataphractii Centurion. The Legion Chaplain Consul rouses his comrades into an unyielding fury, armed with a plasma pistol and an ornate Crozius Arcanium. These models have no Legion markings, allowing Warhammer hobbyists to paint them in whichever colours they choose – however, the box includes a transfer sheet with 339 optional markings and iconography for the Sons of Horus and Imperial Fists Legions.
This set comprises 12 plastic components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round Base, a Citadel 40mm Round Base, and a Legiones Astartes Infantry Transfer Sheet. These miniatures are supplied unpainted and requires assembly – we recommend using Citadel Plastic Glue and Citadel paints.
You will need a copy of the Warhammer: The Horus Heresy – Age of Darkness Rulebook and either the Liber Astartes: Loyalist Legiones Astartes Army Book or Liber Hereticus: Traitor Legiones Astartes Army Book to make full use of these models.
