This model is as close to a true Daemon Primarch Mortarian as I have seen at an appropriate scale (the model stands 45mm tall) that is available to the masses. The model has a great "Angel of Death" theme with its skull shoulder pads to its robes, gasmask skull kneecap, scythe and plumes. Speaking of plumes, the model is advertised as having "3D Wings." This comes from the fact that the 11 peice model includes a set of wings that is made of 16 individually sculpted feathers. This is a step beyond the usual 3rd party press mold sculpting some company's are known for.
Given the quality of the four other models I own from Hi-Tech Miniatures and the others I have seen in armies across the country, I am certain this model will be a good buy for anybody looking for a Mortarian, Typhus or just a sick Chaos Lord stand in. In fact, I will put my money where my mouth is and order on today. Expect a full review when the kit arrives.
Until then, check out the model and the rest of its photos here. You can see great views of the side and back of the model.
As always, I would love to hear what you think about this model, Hi-Tech's work in general or about any other great Mortarian alternatives you have seen out there.
