|It looks like the Space Marines are getting a host of single-pose plastic characters. The Librarian looks particularly impressive with a face that looks quite unique compared to the standard yelling ones. And is that a reasonably sized combibolter?
While I admit I was not particularly hopeful for the new models, due to the slow depreciation in quality of newly released Space Marine models over the years, I was at least cautiously optimistic about them, because, at the end of the day, I love Space Marines. But I was not prepared for the abysmal lack of quality on display with virtually all of the newly revealed models. Interestingly, not all of the models are necessarily bad sculpts (although some certainly are), but rather they suffer primarily from awful designs. And nowhere is GW’s complete loss for new ideas and effective designs more evident than with the Centurions.
|Inspiration doesn't come too easy.
|The lineage is clear.
|It seems that more thought went into these models then it would initially appear.
|The internet can be a harsh place; the instant I saw images of the Centurions, I saw that many others were also not thrilled with them.
|We can count our blessings, at least they are not finecast.
|Although the kit appears to come with a large assortment of close combat weapons, none really look to add anything new to the Space Marine line, more stubby thunder hammers the size of orks and powerfist-lightning claws.
|Although it appears to be largely the same, there do seem to be some interesting new additions to the tactical kit, including a Travis Bickle mohawk, grav weaponry, and a set of arms that is attempting to aim along their bolter’s sights.
