Forge World has added a new Primarch to their Horus Heresy Character line. This time it’s Konrad Curze, Primarch of the Night Lords. He’s sort of part-Wolverine, part-Dracula. I’ve yet to figure out how someone in power armor can be a “master of stealth” but hey, it’s a universe with interstellar elves and space-magic, so anything’s possible, I guess.
The model comes on a large scenic base, so it’s not so easily used on the tabletop, I wouldn’t think. But hey, it’d be great for a painting contest entry.
From the release:
Attacking from darkness with inhuman ferocity, Konrad Curze, the Night Haunter, inspires terror in the hearts of his prey and subjects alike. A vicious combatant, Konrad wrested control of his world, Nostramo, from criminals and corrupt overlords, and began a reign of terror that ensured order through fear. After taking command as their Primarch, his Legion, the Night Lords, gained a reputation for brutality and looked to bring judgment rather than deliverance to worlds reclaimed for the Emperor during the Great Crusade.
Armed with murderous, artificer-lightning claws and micro-serrated throwing blades, Konrad Curze tears through his enemies, making short work of whole units. Despite his great size he is a master of stealth and concealment, moving in darkness and stalking his target. Few men can stand to face him, and none can look on the Night Haunter and not feel the ice of fear in their hearts.
This imposing, highly detailed model depicts Konrad Curze mid-battle. His armour is decorated with trophies of an impressive number of kills, including skulls and flayed skin. His scenic display base includes the corpses of Konrad’s latest victims, a pair of Solar Auxilia warriors, one of them literally torn limb from limb.
Konrad Curze, Primarch of the Night Lords can be fielded in Night Lords Legion armies in Horus Heresy games. His rules can be found in The Horus Heresy Book Two – Massacre and The Horus Heresy – Isstvan Campaign Legions.
This is a complete resin kit with a removable display base. It is available to order now for immediate despatch.
