To celebrate the 25th Birthday of Warhammer 40,000, Games Workshop are releasing the special edition miniature based on the Space Marine Captain from the front cover of the Rogue Trader rulebook.
Many wargamers (like me) will remember the iconic picture of the Crimson Fist Space Marines last stand fighting desperately against the oncoming horde of Orks.
Games Workshop say,
The anniversary miniature represents the Captain from that piece of artwork, clad in Mark VI armour and armed with a plasma pistol and power fist (complete with severed Ork head). Remember though, this piece is only available while stocks last (and they will almost certainly not last long), so make sure you order yours now! This pack contains one Warhammer 25 Year Anniversary Model. This model is a finely detailed resin cast miniature supplied as seven components (including a fully detailed base piece), and comes with one 25mm round base and one 60mm round base.I am seriously considering getting myself one of these. At £20 that's not too bad for GW.
