The Captain-General of the Legio Custodes

Few heroes of the Imperium are as revered and storied as Constantin Valdor. From the earliest days of Unity, he stood at the Emperor’s right hand, leading the Custodian Guard into battle and defending his liege with every breath. He fought at Prospero, aiding Leman Russ in his mission to bring Magnus to heel, and as Daemons invaded Terra, he fought below the Imperial Palace to defend all that the Master of Mankind had sought to build. Though his final fate remains unclear, it is certain that he fought bravely in the Siege of Terra and killed many traitor champions.

And now you can add him to your Horus Heresy armies. Constantin Valdor, Captain-General of the Legio Custodes is the latest in the Horus Heresy Character Series, and what a model it is. Like all the Character Series, Valdor comes with a scenic base, depicting shattered ruins that could be Prospero or the Imperial Palace, and he is dynamically posed, as if ready to strike down an approaching foe.

Valdor’s armour is recognisably that of the Legio Custodes, though more ornate and with unique decoration not found on any of his fellows, notably lion’s heads. He wears the pelt and skull of some great beast over one shoulder and a stylised wing on the other, marking him out as over and above even the greatest heroes of the Legio Custodes. His cloak is billowing, the movement echoed by Oaths of Moment attached to his armour, and he has a unique halo and his deadly Apollonian spear to further individualise him. Valdor is bare-headed, his mohawk matching depictions of him from classic Horus Heresy artwork.   

You can pre-order your very own Constantin Valdor from the Forge World webstore now, and you’ll find his rules in The Horus Heresy Book Seven – Inferno.
