Squads of Vertus Praetors swoop into battle astride powerful Dawneagle jetbikes. Veteran warriors who have seen conflict on a hundred worlds, these Custodians know the true value of speed: not simply to bring the enemy to bear, but to direct their might precisely where and when it is needed most. Wherever they see their comrades hardest pressed, there the Vertus Praetors strike like golden lightning to bolster them. They scream across the battlefield, rapidly outflanking and encircling the heaviest enemy vehicles – even enemy aircraft are not safe, for by combining their fire Vertus Praetors are able to weave airborne webs of flakk into which hurtling enemy craft slam with terminal results.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a squad of 3 Vertus Praetors. Astride their Dawneagle jetbikes, they wear somewhat less bulky armour than the other Adeptus Custodes warriors, in order to maintain lightness – while they are still protected by auramite chest plates, shoulder pads and helmets, they wear woven trousers, boots and robes. The armour that they do wear is covered in finely sculpted sigils of the Emperor, with Imperial eagles, lightning bolts, gemstones and filigree adorning every surface, with the jetbikes they pilot featuring similar details on the aggressively-shaped cowling. The Praetors carry interceptor lances and misericordia, while the Dawneagle jetbikes are armed with a choice of hurricane bolters or salvo launcher – whichever you choose, they’re visible at the front of the vehicle, with the engine and weapon feeds visible in gaps in the cowling. The controls feature a large screen, with plenty of dials and buttons. The kit can also make a Shield-Captain, who is distinguished by his bare head.
This kit comes as 111 components, and is supplied with 3 Citadel 75mm Oval stands, with flying stems.
Sisters of Battle make up the vast majority of the Orders Militant of the Adepta Sororitas. Each Battle Sister is an orphan raised from birth by the Schola Progenium to believe in the righteousness of their cause and is trained from an early age in the use of a variety of weaponry. Battle Sister squads are each led by a Sister Superior, such as Amalia Novena, who is a member of the Order of the Martyred Lady.
The ground shudders beneath the tread of a towering Dominus-class Knight. The enemies of the Imperium scatter before the mighty war engine, its immense guns blasting ragged holes in their ranks even as their own return fire bounces from the Knight Castellan's ion shield or clangs and whines from its inches-thick armour. Then the enfilading fire hits home, and panic turns to terror as the enemy realise they have been outflanked by a pair of loping Armiger Helverins. Trapped and hammered mercilessly by the Imperial Knights, the foe is soon reduced to ruin.
Bright and resplendent in gleaming gold, the Adeptus Custodes stride into war with the confidence their imposing stature gives them. Bullets and shrapnel ricochet from gilded breastplates – these warriors are armoured with the finest wargear, carrying the blessing of the Emperor himself. With their guardian spears they spin, parry and thrust, their immense strength cutting down the enemy as the built-in bolters deal death from afar. The Adeptus Custodes’ minds carry judgment – and their fists carry death.
