Default Constantin Valdor



Spotted a pic of him over on B&C. Definitely the 'primarch' of the Custodes for sure. I wonder what he'd look like in 40k, given the hints in their codex that he is still alive.

But damn, he sure loves his bling, almost outshining the Emperor himself.

I know its a picture of a picture, but the face looks kinda funky and Eldaresque. The halberd blade is a bit too ornate for my liking as well. All in all, far too busy compared to how he's been portrayed in Vusions of Heresy.

This chap hasn't also been spotted. Once again, the halberd is too like a wraithguard weapon.

Agreed, an extremely busy and overdesigned model compared to the artwork.
I now shudder at the thought of what a bling-king the master of mankind might become, should he ever get a model!

Might just be the picture and angle, but Constantin looks way too busy in that picture. Not too fond of what I am seeing there, especially when compared to the Visions artwork. Might still get him for my Custodes at some point regardless of what the final model turns out to be, but that Shield Captain on the other hand is definitely getting purchased to lead my forces in the meantime!

The page have a 360 degrees view example which cant be linked to here.

Better images of Valdor. I think the bottom one is the better paintjob.

Nope, another huge miss from FW for me. More like an eldar Autarch than one of humanity's greatest heros.

Yeah, no. Unless he can be assembled without all those pelts and trophies there is barely anything to salvage from here. Even the head looks like it will need to be ripped off and replaced with the mohawk one from the Custodes plastic kit.

Will be getting two of these instead. Hell, give one of them a regular spear and the afore mentioned mohawk head and its an almost spot on artwork Valdor.
