Ah, fair point! I still feel the three grooves on the breastplate are similar though - again, it's not a complaint, but just highlighting a similarity!

Yeah, that i think is true, i don't think the trio of grooves was present on any Cataphractii terminators thus far - but i might be wrong, of course.

I wonder if it's a bug or feature that the UM look like gen1 gamers... you know the kind who would tell you about gaming life in the 80's and how AD&D was a downgrade or that they never understood why Battletech needed anything other than the original box release using the Droid name instead.

Not a criticism personally of the Cataphractii Ultramarine sculpt, but I do seem to notice some aspects for 40k Gravis design in there. The cog-teeth design on the boots and the three small grooves in the breastplate under the gorget eagle specifically look like elements of Gravis armour?


It's actually the opposite - the Cog-teeth design on the boots of the Gravis Armour is taken from the design of Cataphractii Terminators, they did it first.


Old metal Devastators had the cog design on the boots long before them.

Fair enough, forgot about Devastators.

So is the Ultramarine geneseed flaw male pattern baldness? Not the usual shaved bald and screaming but overweight grandpa grey hair style. Makes me wonder if Marneus had Cawl install some hair plugs while he was getting primarisized.

I was not aware of that. Where did you see/read the albino part?

Imperial Fists Praetors are up, and they're separate - £26 for the Terminator & £22 for the Power Armour. (Graviton Gun Set is £12.50)

They’re such good models. The 360s just improve what I already thought were great.

That design on the boot has shown up a lot on "slow and purposeful" units (multiple times on Devastators, Cataphractii, Gravis). I think they're meant to evoke the crenellations on castles, at least that's where my mind jumps to when I see them.

Nice to see WarCom has given up even trying to name the armours now

The FW product page still says Cataphractii, but it looks more like ornate Tartaros.

Mmm, yes. Think that's the first time that has been used on models.
Wonder if that is how they're going to brand the rumoured HH relaunch.

The Horus heresy: Siege of Terra branding isn't something that gets put up "just because it's the first thing the designer came across". You don't think that had to go through multiple levels of approval before it got put up on the website?

The "Siege of Terra" bit has now been removed from the site, so I was wrong. Sorry.

No worries. It was probably an oversight as it only really showed up on mobile devices.

FW doesn't seem to really care nowadays.

Just recently, they sent people wrong models, forgot to remove 3D-print lines from masters before making molds, resulting in models having 3D-print lines on the finished, cast models, and put up several models under wrong names or wrong lines - like this, or Horus Heresy DKoK. And they're still to fix the fact stuff they're repackaging is showing up as "No longer avalible online", instead of y'know, "temporarily unavalible" or somethinge else, which would actually be the correct label.

The Imperial Fist Preator is still labeled as "Cataphractii Terminator" on their website, while he's actually wearing Tartaros armour. They have diffrent rules, so currently it's a bit of a discrepency between WYSIWYG and what GW labelled him as.

Man, out sure would be nice if legions with literally zero characters at all could at least get praetor models.

They all have their Primarchs. Or do people not count them as characters?
