The warriors of the Adeptus Custodes disregard the idea of blind obedience, and look with disdain upon those who follow the orders of their superiors without question. Every Custodian has a voice, and is expected to use it; as such, the Ten Thousand respect only those who have proved themselves worthy, whose judgment, strategic skill and strength of mind have been shown again and again. Such Custodians are called Shield-Captains, and their fellows follow them with loyalty and dedication.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Shield-Captain. He is clad in spectacular, expertly-crafted auramite power armour – this is covered in finely sculpted sigils of the Emperor, with Imperial eagles, lightning bolts, gemstones and filigree covering every surface. The Shield-Captain is armed as standard with with castellan axe and misericordia – he can replace the axe with a guardian spear. Specific helmet plumes, shoulder pads and thigh plates included in the kit make the Shield-Captain distinct from the other Custodian Wardens.
As well as the Shield-Captain, the kit also makes 4 Custodian Wardens, or 3 Custodian Wardens and a Vexilus Praetor. The Custodian Wardens can also be armed with a choice of guardian spear or castellan axe, along with balistus grenade launcher and misericordia. The Vexilus Praetor carries a splendid ornate vexilla.
This kit comes as 78 components, and is supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
