The Chaplains act as spiritual advisors and guides for each Space Marine chapter, carefully watching for spiritual weakness and doubt in the ranks of the Adeptus Astartes. In times of peace they act as the priesthood of their Chapter, initiating recruits into the beliefs held by their chapter, performing rituals and ceremonies, and acting as advisors to the Chapter Master. In times of War they stride the battlefield clad in blackened armour and skull helms, for the truest facet of the Adeptus Astartes beliefs is that they are the Angels of Death, and the Chaplians lead their brethren by this example.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the parts necessary to assemble a Primaris Chaplain. Wearing iconic jet-black Mk X power armour featuring unique greaves, he fights fiercely using his absolver bolt pistol and crozius arcanum. His hooded cassock lends him an air of sinister intensity, with plenty of spikes, chains, skulls and purity seals dotted all about. His helmet features a skull design and the chestplate of his armour is modified to portray an exposed ribcage – a reminder of the mortality that his enemies face. His backpack has an attached iron halo, whose 12 points aptly represent the High Lords of Terra.
The Primaris Chaplain comes as 12 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base. The kit also includes a Space Marines Character Transfer Sheet, which features Captain, Chaplain, Librarian and Lieutenant iconography.
