Unboxing - Triumvirate of the Primarch - Part One

I've once again succumbed to that hobby dilemma of buying something i'll probably never use because it's really amazing looking and then ending up wanting to use it because it's so amazing looking...the culprit in this case was the 'Triumvirate of the Primarch' box set...

"A strange fate binds Roboute Guilliman, Grand Master Voldus and the Fallen Angel Cypher together. They walk a path of providence; though whether it ends in damnation or deliverance, none can say. On the battlefield, this triumvirate of warriors is an unstoppable, inspiring force, bolstering the morale of those they lead while shattering enemy lines with their staggering strength. Cypher’s pistols roar as Voldus’ psychic powers lash out – all the while, Guilliman strides like a reborn god, bellowing rallying cries and striking down countless foes."

I'm going to cover each of the three characters contained within in their own individual features but don't worry...I'm only going to do pictures of the box in this first one...

The box is actually nicely presented with a nicely decorated internal section, an art print and a quite elaborate set of instructions that also includes character stats for the box contents...

'Lord of the Fallen'
Cypher – Lord of the Fallen – bedecked in archaic, makeshift gear appropriate to his renegade nature, his armour is retrofitted with parts from a variety of patterns – each part telling a story. He’s armed with a modified plasma pistol, and carries a particularly interesting sword on his back… Supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base.
Cypher - Sprue
Here's pictures of both sides of the sprue for Cypher.

Cypher - Assembled
Surprisingly few parts for such a detailed model and there were no tricky aspects to the assembly at all.

Here's a few close-ups...

Instructions and Stats
As some-one who assembles models from a lot of different companies ranges I have to say that instructions with clear diagrams, numbers that match with parts on the sprue and actual views of the rear of the model were particularly enjoyable...

In part two we'll be looking at Grand Master Voldus, Warden of the Librarius...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
