An Iron Priest is a unique Special Officer within the Space Wolves Chapter of Space Marines. Iron Priests serve the Space Wolves in essentially the same capacity as the Techmarines of other Codex Astartes-compliant Chapters. The Iron Priests look after the many engineering systems in the Space Wolves' monastery fortress The Fang, overseeing engineering projects and all the other complex engineering tasks performed by the Astartes of Fenris every day.
The skills of these fierce and silent craftsmen are respected and feared by their Space Wolves, most of whom regard advanced technology and the mechanical arts as a dark and frighteningly obscure science. The role of the Iron Priest evokes the bygone era of the Great Crusade in the last two centuries of the 30th millennium. They were one of several subdivisions within the Priests of Fenris, the interconnected orders responsible for the physical, spiritual, and technological needs of the VI. Legion worried.
The Iron Priests are masters of the forge, the armory, the war machines, and the machine spirits, and it is their job to maintain all of the Space Wolves' advanced weaponry and technology. Their expertise lies in technical matters and their role is similar to that of Techmarines in other chapters. Like Techmarines, they spend several Terran years with the Techpriests of the Adeptus Mechanicus of Mars, where they learn the innermost secrets of arcane mechanics. It is the Iron Priests who forge every blade and bless every boltgun, and it is they who appease the spirits of plasma and flame.
They belong to a Brotherhood older than the Chapter itself. Without Iron Priests, the Sons of Leman Russ would be reduced to wearing armored armor instead of motorized armor. Without the Iron Priests who maintained the Order's starship, they would not be able to fly to the Star Sea. Without her, The Aett would collapse and the Order itself would die.
This multi-part plastic kit contains all the components necessary to assemble one Iron Priest, the relentless armored battlesmith of the Space Wolves. He's armed with a Helfrost pistol and assault hammer—usually used for forging and smelting, but also pretty handy in combat—and includes a servo arm. This model is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round Base.
