Default FW Horus Heresy - Perturabo

Not seen any official announcements or even pics of him, unless I missed a thread. But in the latest FW email it has this banner for FW open day, with one awesome looking Perturabo!

So Perturabo is (from the picture so far) rocking the same pose as Typhon. One could make a mexican stand-off with those two in front of each other.

Still looking forward to seeing the rules for the standing Lord of Skulls!

He looks pretty badass. Could potentially be my favourite traitor Primarch model (aside from Horus obviously).

A recycled pose but a billion times better looking than Robert already.

Yessss that Lord of Legs is what's up! Please be a single kit, please don't have shitty rules...

Perturabo looks awesome, too. I usually don't like the Primarchs, but I like him.

Is this definitely Perturabo? I didn't know he had wrist mounted bolters. Looking pretty awesome!

Need to see the whole model because as it is, I'll not impressed, like the individual stuff but when together it looks like a mess with the too much going on.

Curious as to the Walking Lord of Skulls.

Initial impressions of Perturabo is meh, but I'll reserve a final judgement until the whole mini can be seen. It really disappoints me that the wonderful sculpts are being let down by rubbish posing in the HH characters series as a whole.

I really wanted to see what they did with Russ, but now I'm just afraid they'll make a shit of the pose. Hopefully they'll do something like the Ferrus/Fulgrim diorama with Russ and Magnus, making the two more dynamic than we've seen lately. I am doubtful though.

Definitely a good tie in. However I can't help but feel that the wires around his face takes away from it. Not a fan of how many wires there are running from his skull. They could've done well with less wires, or they could have improved the placement of them. Just my personal preference though.

He still looks great from the picture.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.
