As the final unit of Sequitors are painted and the basing done, I was finally relieved to have finished this collection after what seemed like a long journey. I’m proud to have made it to this point of the series, I feel like a duardin fulfilling one of the many oaths I’ve promised (well partly, I still have the Nighthaunt to finish off and some Stormcast Eternals that aren’t Part of the Sacrosanct Chamber faction).
Today’s post is going to be in two parts, one focusing on the second cohort of Sequitors, and the other being a full showcase of the collection. Starting off, here’s my final unit of Sequitors, led by Sequitor Prime Porthas.
I brought the Tempest of Souls set which only had five Sequitors, two being Primes. Since I wanted both Mara and Porthas, I needed a female prime model (found in the Storm strike set) so the second prime was made as a regular Sequitor. You’ll notice the model on the far right has distinct features of a prime which sadly I couldn’t get rid of easily without ruining the model. I imagined this model being bestowed honours during secret missions when the Sacrosanct was still a secretive Chamber.
The second cohort is led by Sequitor Prime Porthas, who along with Mara’s cohort fought alongside Lord Arcanum Balthas during the battle of Glymmsforge. Whilst nothing is known in detail about Porthas, we do see how well he and Mara’s cohorts fight, with great team work and devoted to fight against the undead horrors unleashed by the Great Necromancer.
If Balthas and his Chamber do have their story continued in future books, I’d like to see more about Porthas and what his strengths and weaknesses are, and what was his past life like before being reforged. AoS is getting better each year now thanks to GW and Black Library’s hard work and creativity, we’re seeing more narrative progression and stories about the mortal realms in novels and gaming supplements. Hopefully these stories will be continued for years to come.
Now it’s time to have a look at the Anvils of Heldenhammer Sacrosanct Chamber Collection!Lord Arcanum Balthas leads his Chamber to battle against the damned legions and the legions of the undead, smite by hammer and magic.
Knight-Incantor Miska channels the winds of Azyr to Perform a deadly spell against even the strongest of corrupted champions.
Lord Arcanum Balthas channels his magical talents using the alchemy winds of Chammon (lore of Metal).
Heroic in stature is Sequitor Prime Mara, but nevertheless she is determined to see the enemy of Sigmar destroyed for the preservation of order.
Evocator Prime bares the scars of war on his face that looks grim and morbid, his skills of the blade and magic is much to be feared and respected.
The wonders of warfare science has created such exquisite, master-crafted and deadly crafted weapons like the Celestar Ballista the means to being punishment from afar.
Evocator Helios along with a lone Gryphound share a common goal for loathing Chaos, the undead minions of Nagash even more.
Sequitor Prime Porthas and his cohort are warriors made for war, immortal by Sigmars creation, but not without a price……
The Castigators led by Castigator Prime Qunitus are specialists of long range weaponry, they are just as deadly as their close combat kin.
If you want to see more of these painted models on their own, check out my previous posts on Inspired Soul Wars Collection series on my blog.
That’s it for this long and well deserved finale post on my Sacrosanct Chamber side of the project. I’d recommend reading the novel Soul Wars, by Josh Reynolds, as a staring point for Warhammer: Age of Sigmar for newcomers and long time readers. It’s a fascinating story full of strange and wonderful characters and locations that make the story feel like a good read.
However this isn’t the end of Inspired Soul Wars Collection, as I’ve mentioned above I’ve got more work to do! Currently I’m getting my unit of Prosecutors painted, representing the unit led by Prosecutor-Prime Galen Sleekwing.
