Completely agree, and yeah the helmet is awesome. I'm really happy with how they've done his glaive as well, very cool looking.

As always the FW team really have made a gorgeous model. I may get a collection of the 'special' characters one day, although I am waiting for the Thousand sons to be created before I start collecting any 30k.

I have no interest in starting a Night Lords army, my boys in purple suit me just fine.

Having said that, when I'm looking for a cool model to paint to break the monotony of a consistent colour scheme, Sevetar and Curze will be priorities for me to acquire. They just look so damn cool!

The pose and scenery are good. The armour is well done, as is the bare head.

Weapon 'end' and helmeted head look stupid and underwhelming. Give the Night Lords snarling Bat helmets already. Enough with the over-used, corrupted skull design.

Final gripe - I wish FW would STOP putting dead bodies all over these miniatures. Yes, I know they are optional and you don't have to add them yourself, but honestly... dead space marines everywhere devalues and reduces the maturity of the model. In my eyes anyway.

Ye Olde armour? Check. Chapter iconography? Check. Bad head design? Check. Elevating scenary/staircase? Check. Dead Loyalist? Check.

I am happy with Debris, bullet casings, smashed equipment, etc. But please. Enough with the dead bodies.

Looks absolutely brutal. Wow.


I will say that the "pointing commander" pose is a little boring, though. They don't pose every sculpt that way, but it seems like plenty of them just have to be pointing with a finger or their sword. Their troops just won't know which way the enemy is without them pointing. "GET 'EM! NO, YOU FOOLS. THAT'A WAY!"

Looking at the glaive from this angle, I think I might change it out for a blade that's more chain than spear. The blade on top and spike on the side look like they make the chainblade redundant. It's also missing anything that looks like a teleport homer on the haft, as described in Prince of Crows.

I thought he was pointing at first too, but he's actually holding a knife in a reverse grip at a slightly awkward angle, not pointing.

Goddamn, just had my 2 Terror squads arrive yesterday in the mail. Wish I had held off briefly to include him. Not 100% sold on the helmet, but it's better than the raptors helms - more backswept and defined. Might add it to the base at his feet and get someone else to paint that infinitely hard, but very on point, head. The base is kinda basic as well but overall I dig.

That spike does seem silly. Adding anything on is going to be annoying
