Formerly named Calistarius, the mighty figure that would be renamed as Mephiston is an object of awe and reverence among the Blood Angels. Calistarius succumbed to the Black Rage on the besieged world of Armageddon, and was inducted into the Death Company by the Chaplains of that campaign. He fell that day, not to blade or bullet, but crushed beneath tonnes of a collapsing building. Despite this, death still did not take him, and so he lay trapped in the darkness, raving and screaming at the torment in his mind. Through this ordeal however, something changed within him. On the seventh night, something more powerful than the battle brother he had been pushed himself free of the rubble. Mephiston, the Lord of Death, Conqueror of the Black Rage.
As the Chief Librarian of the Blood Angels, Mephiston is a formidable psyker, though he is equally at home cutting down the enemies of the Emperor with his force sword, Vitarus, or the searing beams of his plasma pistol. Mephiston can be assembled aiming his pistol with his right hand, or wiping his mouth on the back of his gauntlet – could he even be wiping the blood from his fangs?
This 16-piece plastic set makes one Mephiston, Lord of Death, and is supplied with one 40mm Citadel Round Base.
