Abaddon & Loken

 
"Ezekyle Abaddon, First Captain of the Sons of Horus and Master of the Justaerin, was one of the most renowned and fanatically loyal commanders of the XVIth Legion. A hulking brute of a Space Marine, whispered rumour had long speculated that he was the clone-progeny of the Warmaster himself. Regardless, Abaddon walked willingly into treachery alongside his master, slaughtering many of his former comrades on the blasted fields of Isstvan III, and soon his name was amongst the most feared and despised of the traitor Horus’ followers.


Garviel Loken once commanded the 10th Company of the Luna Wolves Legion; later the Sons of Horus. He was a well-respected and senior commander, and one of the Mournival, the unofficial cadre of Horus’ closest advisors. His idealism and staunch loyalty to the Emperor and Humanity saw him selected to command the Sons of Horus contingent in the assault against the recidivists of Isstvan III. When the true scope of betrayal was revealed, Loken and his comrades cast aside their Legion name and proclaimed themselves Luna Wolves once more.


Set of two multi-part resin models packed with Legion-specific iconography and supplied in a black presentation box. The figures slot into a large scenic base to allow the fateful duel between the two to be represented. Also supplied with one 40mm and one 20mm base for gaming purposes. Models designed by Simon Egan. You can watch an interview with Simon about his approach to sculpting these fantastic figures here. Available to pre-order now for despatch from Friday the 1st of March."
 All this can be your for £55. Most of which is probably for the base. The only thing I dislike (other than the price) is Loken's cloak. It's too long since I've read the first three Heresy books, to remember if everything is accurate to the confrontation as presented there. The only other thing to wonder is if we'll see individual models for the two characters, and who's coming next.

  1. These are great models. Some of the nicest I have seen since Simon Egan's last release with Angron. Egan is in a league of his own in Forge World. Like Brian Nelson at GW, Egan always brings something new to the table with each of his models. This is even more noticeable with his Horus Hersey releases because they are focused on Space Marines. Too many sculptors simply rehash the same old concepts with Space Marines and reuse the same components. With Egan's marines he always strives to add new personal touches that make them distinct from the current line of Space Marines. He does a great job of modeling unique and interesting faces on many of his Space Marines (Angron,Korvydae, Lugft Huron, etc). He also does a good job or proportioning the marines he does. This is not always the case with many of the marines released by both GW and Forge World. Some of the worst offenders are some of the new Forge World armor variants. If you look athe legs of some of the Mark II armor from Forge World for example, you will see their legs are almost comically thin.
