What's New Today from the White Dwarf Team

First of the host

The Celestant-Prime is an angelic demi-god, the harbinger of Sigmar's wrath, fury and vengeance. Descending from the skies on pinions of celestial light, he brings death and destruction to those who fight against the Stormcast Eternals. In one hand he wields the cometstrike sceptre. In the other, the most powerful weapon in existence, the warhammer Ghal Maraz.

There was much rejoicing following the recovery of Ghal Maraz, yet Sigmar did not take up the weapon himself. Though desperate to join the fight in the Mortal Realms, the God-King understood that his place was in Sigmaron, overseeing the war. And so he took the God Breaker to the Chamber Extremis, where he unlocked his most powerful weapon: the first Stormcast Eternal, the Celestant-Prime.

This new plastic kit represents the Celestant-Prime following his reawakening by Sigmar. Clad in sigmarite armour, his faced hidden by a golden mask, the Celestant-Prime floats above the battlefield on a vortex of celestial energy, his radiant wings an explosion of light behind him.

From the back you can see the Celestant-Prime's billowing cape, which takes the shape of Sigmar's twin-tailed comet. You can also see the locked reliquary worn between the Celestant-Prime's wings.

The orrery of celestial fates swirls beneath the Celestant-Prime's feet, astronomical models and miniature orrerys visible in the whirling vortex of stars, comets and planets. It's the vortex's clever design that makes the Celestant-Prime appear to be descending from the sky like an avenging angel.

In his other hand the Celestant-Prime carries the cometstrike sceptre. In times of great need the Celestant-Prime can use the power bound within the sceptre to snare passing comets from the heavens and bring them crashing to the ground with devastating force.
