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.
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!

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.

Even that one isn't great. The head looks way too big for the body. Yeah, the mohawk head from the plastic kit would probably make a much better version.
It IS too big for the body. And though more subtle, I think the legs are too short as well. It's like the modeler used a toddler for a model and didn't realize proportions change when those grow up into adults.

Valdor's better proportioned, but should've left that entire wall of trophies he's carrying at home.

Ironically, custodians are crafted from a -very- early age. Perhaps he have a bit of a toddler in his shape still. >:)

He is now up for pre-order.

My opinion on his looks has not improved much over the past 2 months, though I'm now pretty sure that eagle crash-landed on his shoulder. If anyone orders one, let me know if he can be built without some of the big distractions (the eagle and horned thing on his other shoulder especially) that would probably improve him a lot.

That idea appears actually stolen straight from the Sigmarines. Though the curving is new and definitely DOES put Tzeenth in mind, I'll agree with you there...
