The leaks are out, and are now very much posted everywhere. Several models are shown, The Master of Marches, Master of Rites, Lord Executioner, and Master of Relics. These pages all come from the latest White Dwarf leaks.


I believe these pics come from Tastytaste first, over on Blood of Kittens, so here is a link to them there.

they can also be found on Dakka
http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/990/530894.page

My suggestion is to check them out before they are gone.

These models are finecast resin and are new to be released alongside the Apocalypse release coming out in July.
The Master of Relics
Is the commander of the Devastator Company and an expert at long range engagements

Master of Marches
Is in charge of the Deployment of the chapters marines as well as leading the company into battle

Lord Executioner
Commander of the Assault Companies

Master of Rites
Records and Keeps charge of the traditions of the Chapter

    2. thanks EpicWarGamer, I am going to get to this, but my line up today is hard core. I have info on Codex supplements, the who and when, as well as space marine codex rumors coming today.

    3. That video has to be the best one yet, no?

  2. They look great. Hoping Chaos gets something smaller as well rather than just the Lord of Battles.

  3. Hmm, despite these being more unique I think I prefer the original chapter masters. These guys look like they're performing their non-combat duties and thus would be great for diorammas, they just don't seem suited to a battlefield role like the original set were. And some of the added parts are a bit much - they crowd the model. (too many vox casters) Still, nice to see some other releases alongside the bigger ones. Any more?

  4. I'm curious how these are organized, I guess the Lord Executioner is a Captain but isn't in charge of a single company, but instead is in charge of the Captains of the assault companies, which I don't think was explicitly in the chapter organization. I'd really like to have all of the masters of the chapter, I guess there are more than just Captains 1-10, the Chapter Master, Master of the Forge, Chief Apothecary, and Chief Librarian.

    3. There's just one Assault (Reserve) Company, the 8th, whose Captain is the Lord Executioner.
      It's the same for the others, the Masteries are in addition to their duties as Company Captains.

  5. For the most part I like them. I can see conversion opportunities for the Master of Marches and the Master of Rites (as Chaplains). The Executioner would look great leading my Flesh Tearers, and the Master of Relics would fit right at home as my Iron Fists captain.

    If they were plastic kits I'd get them without pause, but by-and-large I hate working with Finecast - so I'm having an internal debate about getting them.

    1. The newer Finecast figures have been far better than the ones we saw even 12 months ago, so you should be fine. At least the clampack lets you look at them first.

  6. With the exception of their accessories they look like 2nd/3rd edition 2-dimensional static poses. I know we've been spoilt recently with some stunning models but these are disappointingly average. The vox casters seem pointless when marines are meant to have helmet comms (as someone on Dakka pointed out) and the master of rites would be a CSM if he was painted black.

    Mind you I'm never fussed about SM models unless they have wolf pelts...

  7. Lord Executioner would be great as a captain for my Blood Angels..

  8. why the master of rites do the same work as librarians?

  9. So uninspired... It still amazes me that FW is able to one up GW on every release. Just look at the new Legion Praetors. They better sculpts. Heck, even the old company masters are much better than these bland and overdone pieces. If this is the best GW can do for their huge annual release...

    1. Or they are entirely inspired by exactly what the models are supposed to represent. You do realize important officers rarely jump into the thick of things, right? These are stoic, leading from a command position. Plus, we only have grainy pictures of them.

      Forgeworld makes some beautiful stuff, but they are an arm of GW also so...

      I love how dynamic combat poses "bore" people because they want something more dramatic or moody. Now they get that, and they wish the models were chopping off heads and spitting on the corpse. Can't have both in the same model, kids.

  10. I can only prey that they would be "Troop unlock" (or almost, they could put a specialist squad as "Troops").

    1. It doesn't really matter if they unlock certain units as troop choices. They're meant for apocalypse, apocalypse doesn't care for your puny FOC.

    2. Master + 3 matching selections = bonus rules

  11. Great, more marines before the marine codex.

  12. They are just ok, nothing special. The last set was much nicer.

  13. The master of relics has the space marine tank receiver dish on his back. How lazy was that sculpt...

    ReplyDelete
  14. So with the originals we now have these:

    1 - missing
    2 - Master of the watch (original set)
    3 - Master of the Arsenal (original set)
    4 - Master of the Fleet (original set)
    5 - Master of the marches (new set)
    6 - Master of rites (new set)
    7 - missing
    8 - Lord executioner (new set)
    9 - Master of relics (new set)
    10 - Master of recruits (original set)

    Pretty cool in a way to have most of these chaps physically represented, and you could always use the terminator captain for Agemmon, swap Sicarius to 2nd and the MotW to 6th and have the full set. What would be really cool is if in the new apoc book each captain has a special rule affecting company disposition and if this could be ported into regular games of 40k.

  15. Also, I wonder what the price will be? The original set is £20.50 for 4, so these guys will probably be about £15 each!

  16. Captain chaplain looks ok and its nice to c the old L.E. sicarius get a new use with the executioner

    1. That is also able to become a shadowsword...

  19. Besides the Master of Relics I can't say I'm super excited by these guys, I think they are fine looking sculpts but I'll probably only pick up the one and stick a helmet on him.
    Perhaps the Lord Executioner if I get some Blood Angels, I think he'd fit in well there.

    1. Going to convert the Lord Executioner to Darius, from League. Gah, he looks wicked cool.

  20. The new teaser video is out now as well at GW website and it shows how big the new scenery is going to be... A warhound titan can hide behind it. Just Mega man.

  21. Unfortunately, thats not new terrain. Thats clearly the old cities of death buildings, built into a large cathedral sort of thing. Its probably one of the pieces from the actual cathedral display they did years ago.
