New CSM Squad Kit

So I finally finished building these guys and I got to say I have mixed feelings. The models look amazing, but they are a nightmare to build. What you see is what you get with these guys. The only customizable parts are the heads and arms(most arms). The poses are pretty limited when paring them with the arms because many arms wont fit well on certain bodies. And on that note, let’s talk about things fitting together…

If you aren’t planning on equipping these guys with with chainswords and volt pistols then get ready for a tough time. Almost none of the bolter arms fit well, and some of them (2 pairs) are so bad that I had to use some greenstuff to make them attach to the torso.

As far as building them goes, I would reccomend only building one at a time taking pieces from the sprue as you build each one rather than get all the pieces off first. The reason for this is because these guys only fit together one way and if you dont know which parts to use it’s like putting together a jigsaw puzzle (I sadly had to do the puzzle approach).

So now to the instersesting things. If this is anything to go off of it seems like this kit reinforces the rumors about the World Eaters and Emporer’s Children getting their own armies and kits soon. If you notice the transfer sheet on this kit as well as the pictures on the back only contain Chaos Undivided Legions. Here is to hoping right?

I'm a law student that absolutely loves WH40K, and all things related. As far as the hobby goes, I love to do kitbashes, paint and sculpt miniatures. I also love making scratch built tabletop terrain. I honestly almost consider the terrain aspect a hobby all unto itself as creativity is really your only limitation with scratch building terrain.

One thought on “New CSM Squad Kit”

  1. Funnily enough, I’ve been building primaris marines and have been doing the same thing as you said, building one at a time with caution. They are very limited in their poses and you can’t really mix and match too many parts. The new kits do look the part though, glad both sides of the battle are getting updated models 👍
