I like everything about both models, save one major detail: why is the Terminator Praetor in Cataphractii instead of Tartaros? wouldn't that make more sense for the Scars speed focus?

This is just my own far-fetched hypothesis, but it might have to do with the upcoming WS terminator special squad, which is equipped with tartaros pattern armour. While it may seem contradictory, my guess is that FW is releasing the praetor in a different pattern to the special unit so that, should you want an HQ with either pattern of terminator armour, you can get it from them through the single praetor or the terminator unit. The same has happened with the Blood Angels praetor and special terminator unit.
I'm not saying that this the real reason nor that it would actually be a good idea from FW, as having the praetor and the unit in the same pattern would probably be an easier way to sell them together, and the AL release had matching armour patterns, if I recall correctly. Maybe it was just a matter of the WS sculptor wanting to sculpt both patterns :D.

Oof. Good grief, those close-ups do not do the Praetor paint job any favors. I know white is notoriously difficult to do well, but... that is not flattering.

Phwoar, that leviathan.

He was released over a month ago.

I'm a terrible painter, so it's comforting to know that if my career doesn't work out there'll be a place for me at Forgeworld.

This dragging of Forgeworld's painters is getting a bit gratuitous.  They haven't ever had Golden Daemon quality painting, or even 'Eavy Metal level for the most part, so why all the fuss now?  The power armor praetor isn't bad by any means.  It's a perfectly fine paint job, especially when blown up to that size.  I get that people are eager to hate on FW over the price hikes, etc., and there are legit complaints about a drop in sculpt quality (e.g., heresy space wolves, Raldoran, night lord praetors), but I just don't see a world in which this is a criticism-worthy paint job.

Very fine pieces indeedyes.gif I especially like the glaive wielding Praetor. I'm having visions of "the Death that Comes with Laughter". I just may have to add a contingent of White Scars to fight along side my beloved XIII Legion...… just what I need, another armysmile.png facepalm.png

Terminators swing it for me. Pretty sure though these WS worship a secret second god called zordon

All Legion Variants of dread (Contemptor/Leviathan) are more expensive (rather minimally) than the generic legion variant.

I think there’s a sale (free arm) on all the Leviathans but this one, because it came out after the sale started.

The power armour Praetor would look ten times better with a sweet FW WS helm

All of these models are available for purchase now, so this topic is closed.

Further discussion can take place in either the White Scars or Age of Darkness forums.
