Away from his Retinue boxed set this time, the Primarch of the First Legion, Lion El'Jonson, is here. Possibly one of the most dynamic and exciting models for some time, his dynamic pose and presence is a challenge to hobbyists and a delight to see on the battlefield. An absolute favourite model, he is absolutely awesome - especially with his Tywin Lannister head. Meanwhile, that rebel Tau ideologue, Commander Farsight, is here with his updated model, and it's a huge improvement. Adding beauty and style to the Tau forces with sleek lines, and an unmistakable aesthetic, whether you paint it up as Farsight or someone else, this is an awesome mini. It's a real shame Games Workshop have really only shown him in this limited pose, because some of the hobbyists in the Tau Community have produced some amazing pieces with him. The third of the triumvirate this weekend is Boss Snikrot, an excellent addition to the Ork ranks, he comes off the back of his original model being excellent (and some say even better). Take that grenade off the base and he'll look much better, and less about-to-explode.
In books this week we have two powerful heroines - Commissar Severina Raine in Honourbound, which comes in a stellar Special Edition and the not-so-dead Inquisitor Astor Sabbathiel in Awakenings in paperback. Also this week is the return of Cypher in Cypher: Lord of the Fallen hardback. What does happen to the leader of The Fallen when The Fallen have all been forgiven by their returned Primarch Lion El'Jonson? Find out from the 40 universe's most unreliable witness in what will surely be an interesting insight into the secretive Dark Angels Chapter. We'll be adding this to our Audible listening list for sure!
