Today I'm going to jump on the un-boxing band wagon and show you the parts for the new Custodes Aquilon Terminators with Infernus Firepikes
As with many Forge World products, these beauties come in a free box! Huzzah!
This is the first Forge World kit I've bought with instructions and a leaflet explaining the models.
There is a brief guide to working with resin and a label for the parts and how they go together!
Lets look at the parts eh!
My first thought was "wow, these guys are big!" Brother Handro and I regularly complain that the models look so small at Warhammer World, but these actually feel bulky. The pads are several leagues larger than Terminator pads!
This picture, odd as it is, shows the hoods. I've included it for a) completeness b) a demonstration of the quality of the kit and the reliability of casting. The eagle claws! Look at how perfect they are!
The pikes themselves are beautiful!
It wouldn't be a Forge World kit if the claws/blades weren't bent! This has already been fixed under a hot tap - if this is all I can complain about then....we'll, then I guess it's quite good....(Der H: "I've never been one for words...")
Torso parts, leg guards and daggers - the story behind the dagger means every Custodes must have one!
Three helmets and one bare head - descisions desicisons....probably all helmets! These chaps will be Ixion Hale's bodyguard and so they need to be faceless!
Look! They can be painted! The proof is here!
So in summary I am very pleased with this kit! It is crisp, well checked and well boxed. I suppose my only criticism will be revealed in the summary of my discussion with Will Hayes - stay tuned for that later this week!
