It is said that none can match Sigismund in battle other than the Primarchs themselves. Remorseless and unstoppable in combat, he has swiftly risen through the ranks of the Imperial Fists Legion to serve as commander of the Templar Brethren who make up the VIIth Legion’s First Company.

Wielding the Black Sword, a paragon blade of ancient and unknown provenance, Sigismund has brought countless warriors and warlords to a bloody end. Now, as the Horus Heresy unfolds, he has turned his consummate skill with the blade against the Traitor Legions, ready to strike down all who oppose the Emperor of Mankind and endanger the Imperium he helped build.

Sigismund, First Captain of the Imperial Fists, is the latest addition to the Horus Heresy Character Series. His ornate armour and tabard include insignia and markings of both the Imperial Fists Legion and the Templar Brethren. His display base features the ruins of a Sicaran battle tank’s tracks whilst his removable gaming base includes a destroyed lascannon and sections of Legiones Astartes armour as well as other battlefield debris.

This multi-part resin kit is supplied in a presentation box and includes a 32mm gaming base and a 60mm display base.

    2. Price isn't something I usually mention but when Polux is £36, £45 does raise an eyebrow.

    9. Hey seb12, I'm sure you didn't mean anything by it, but using the word chinamen is kinda like using mick, limey, beaner, greaser, or wop. As in, you could probably use it with people you know and are cool with, but probably not in polite company.

      As a Chinese-American, I don't take offense when I hear it, but it does rub me the wrong way. It may be a common term where you're from, but this blog is read Internationally, so please be aware.

      End PSA, return to your originally scheduled programming.

      Oh, and go Soul Drinkers, who formerly thought they were Sons of Dorn!

    10. Sorry soul drinker, I just don't see how "chinamen" is offensive. It was never used in a derogatory way like wop, limey and other colorful words used to humiliate people,

      Chinamen came from the Chinese migrant workers themselves to describe themselves. China + man. Most Americans called them slopes or slant-eyes or gooks. There is nothing of offense here, unless you want to be offended, which doesn't match your comment.

      Even the Kanji used for Chinese people by the Chinese themselves translates directly to 中国 (china) 人 (man).

      If you go looking for racism, you will always find it -even where it doesn't exist. For example, why aren't we offended that everyone in 40k is white. Have we seriously gotten to the point that we are so easily offended?

    11. I'm not looking for racism, sir. I'm simply trying to inform those who might not be aware, that chinamen is not the appropriate term to use in polite company. Despite the historical origin of the term, or perhaps because of it, chinamen is an antiquated term that is no longer in common use, and promotes antiquated stereotypes.
      Likewise, negro and mulatto are purely descriptive terms that aren't used in polite address either.

      I'm not calling anyone racist here. Honestly, my first instinct, as with most Chinese -Americans I know, was to laugh it off and ignore it. But in the interest of promoting understanding and positive change, l spoke up.

      If someone felt attacked, that was not my intent. Good night, all!

  4. The model in itself is not bad, but for the price I would prefer to convert the champion of the IF command squad.

    And that head still needs replacement in my opinion, so I will definitely save my money for the coming UM Invictarii.

  5. It's ok. Not $80 ok, but regular ok. It's not as good as some of the plastic models GW is putting out now. The lower part of his tabard looks weird.
