A couple of months ago Games Workshop announced an exciting new partnership. It was teaming up with the legendary statue maker Weta to create a series of Warhammer models. The first efforts of this collaboration have now been revealed. Warhammer 40K’s Lieutenant Titus will be the first in the collection, and he’s available to pre-order now.
Unlike Games Workshop miniatures, Weta works on a much bigger scale, 1:6, in fact. That means Lieutenant Titus – who is the lead character in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 – stands at an impressive 610mm tall on a 400mm base. Intricately detailed, the statue comes armed with a Space Marine bolt pistol and chainsword. It even features interchangeable bareheaded or helmeted options – with backlit lenses in his helmet.
Weta’s Warhammer Statues
What’s more, Warhammer 40K’s Lieutenant Titus comes in a regular Battleline edition and a limited edition version (only 1,300). The latter features an additional interchangeable thunder hammer and gore-covered teeth for the chainsword. Plus display stands for the options you don’t include on your statue.
How much does all of this cost? You can pre-order from the Weta store for the measly sum of $1,199.00 USD for the regular model. Whilst the Limited Edition statue is $1,399.00! Shipping isn’t included in those prices and with the statue weighing in at 26kg (57lbs), transporting it won’t be cheap. You’ll need to stump up a 25% non-refundable deposit to secure your pre-order with deliveries expected to begin in Q2 2024.
Not that keen on Lieutenant Titus? The next two statues in the collection have also been unveiled. First up is Chaos’ Abaddon the Despoiler who looks awesome. And then there’s the angelic Celestine, the Living Saint. A fourth is also in the works, no details on them just yet.
Whilst you’re awaiting these statues here’s how to play Warhammer: Realms of Ruin ahead of launch.
