The warriors of the Adeptus Custodes do not believe in blind obedience and look down on those who obey their superiors' orders without question. Each custodian has one vote and is expected to raise it; therefore the ten thousand respect only one who has proven himself worthy, whose judgment, strategic skill, and fortitude of spirit have been proven time and time again. Such Custodians are called Shield Captains, and their comrades follow them with loyalty and devotion.
This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble one Shield Captain. He wears spectacular, masterfully forged Auramite power armor - covered all over with intricately sculpted sigils of the Emperor, with Imperial eagles, lightning bolts, jewels and carvings on every surface. The Shield Captain is armed with a Castle Ax and Misericordia by default - he can replace the ax with a Guardian Spear. Special helmet ornaments, shoulder pads and hip armor included in the kit make the Shield-Captain stand out from other Custodian Wardens.
In addition to the Shield-Captain, the kit can also be used to build 4 Custodian Wardens or 3 Custodian Wardens and a Vexilus Praetor. The Custodian Wardens can be armed with a Guardian Spear or Castle Axe, and also carry Balistus Grenade Launchers and Misericordia. The Vexilus Praetor wears a richly decorated vexillum.
This kit contains 78 components and is supplied with 5 Citadel 40mm Round bases.
