|Hello - my name is...Alpharius...?|
|Chain fist for...solving problems...yes, that's it..|
The figure is sporting Cataphractii terminator armour, carrying a fancy "combi-weapon" that is both bolt gun and melta gun, as well as a nutty chain fist for that more up close and personal work 30k Legion commanders are expected to handle.
|The decals from Forge World really came in handy on this figure|
As I said I was not crazy about this figure. For starters, Space Marines should wear their helmets - it's dangerous out there! And there is something about the sideways angle of the pose that is at odds with the ominous armour and big guns. Seriously, when you are that big and well-protected, just turn around and face whatever it is, and shoot it!
|Whacky cloak? Of course! It's 30k, after all...|
On the plus side, the ornate details on the armour are nicely done, implying a higher rank without anything too over-the-top, and providing a lot of spots for decals and Legion icons, allowing you to customize the figure to the Legion of your choice (assuming you don't wish to be painting the lame dopes of the XIII Legion).
