It's here after a few weeks speculation. To celebrate 25 years of Warhammer 40,000 Gamesworkshop are releasing a fine cast model of the Crimson Fist character from the first edition Rogue Trader cover. It comes with a 25mm and 60mm display base and features the iconic severed Ork head. My only issue is that he seems to be holding a modern plasma pistol as opposed to the plasma gauntlet depicted in the artwork, despite that, the figure will look very nice as a display piece or as a conversion for any Space Marine army (especially the power fist and severed head).
This figure comes in a very nice box with wrap around art, which opens up to reveal more pictures of the figure in all it's glory, being a Finecast figure, it is limited to 5 per customer and is listed as 'While stocks last', I don't know if other retailers will be able to order this one in though. According to the shipping estimates, these figures go out around the 24th of February.
Thanks for reading,
The 14th Legion
