From the website:

Acastus Knights were already rare in the age of the Horus Heresy, and Asterius patterns were even more scarce than Porphyrions. Like its counterpart, they were amongst the most massive and formidable engines of destruction available to Knight Houses. These mighty behemoths were armed to raze the mightiest edifices with conversion beam cannons – even the secondary weapons were deadly in their own right. The carapace hid a massive Karacnos mortar battery, capable of saturating the ramparts with high-impact explosives, as well as two volkite culverins to demolish targets of priority.

This multipart resin kit contains everything you need to build one Acastus Knight Asterius. This model is a Lord of War for Mechanicum Taghmata or Knights Questoris Crusade armies. The kit features a hinged carapace door, allowing the Karacnos mortar battery to be displayed or hidden safely away. The arms include articulation at the shoulder and elbow, and the waist allows rotation for dynamic posing.

This kit contains 154 finely detailed resin components, alongside a comprehensive construction guide.

Rules for using your Acastus Knight Asterius in games of the Horus Heresy can be downloaded from the Downloads tab.
