The August White Dwarf has yet another secret to be revealed. That is the upcoming Games Day exclusive model, Marco Columbo.

The image above is from the 2003 Games Day Espana exclusive release.

Apparently he is a renown explorer credited with the discovery fo Lustria (Warhammer Fantasy). Marco stands above the treasures he has plundered from Lustria, games, gold, etc. From a feather plumed hat, lizard skin cape, and blonde curls, there is a lot of detail in this model. (citadel finecast).

Marco Columbo was done back in 2003 for another games day. Its kind of odd that he would come up again for a new exclusive model. Just to be clear, the new model is a brand new scuplt, standing over his plundered treasures.

  1. really? I had three of these. If true, they really can't sculpt ONE new figure?

    1. I despise the usual tides of negativity on the web toward GW but, while this is an ace figure, the "chance" to own it in finecast is just not enough to justify this.

    2. It is a new scuplt, just the same character.

    4. Did anyone read this part: "Just to be clear, the new model is a BRAND NEW SCULPT, standing over his plundered treasures."

      The one in the photo is the old one. The figure we get will be brand new.

  4. A new sculpt of Marco Columbo? Odd, but I suppose it ties into the lizardmen release

  8. This is a figure that I would LOVE to have in my collection.

    Not being anywhere near a Gamesday event however means it will never happen.

    disappointing.
