Today you can buy the limited edition Ultramarines Legion Herald at your local store - while stocks last. I know that the initial pictures didn't looked that great, but I went ahead and bought one, and need to admit, I quite like him. Not a great fan of his barehead, but you can give him another one or a helmet if you prefer.
The Marine itself is a hommage to Neil Robert's Mark of Calth artwork, and should look great alongside some Suzerains. If you want to use him as Ventanus 'till FW releases a propper one - go for it! He has the right wargear, and both his banner and wrist have the number IV.
Sadly my banner is slightly miscast, but that's nothing unfixable :)
I quite like the spiked bonding studs - Forgeworld, give me more!
The model comes with a datasheet, but I think this one is not different to the stock herald rules (besides the LA: Ultramarines). Still, be careful when you open the blister.
What do you think about the Ultramarines Herald? Will you get one? What would you like to see as "limited edition" model next time?
