Mephiston Returns To The World Of Warhammer 40,000

November 21, 2019 by brennon

The Chief Librarian of the Blood Angels, master of the Black Rage and all-powerful psyker from the world of Warhammer 40,000 is getting added back into the mix by Games Workshop with pre-orders going live 30th November. Check out the new Mephiston!

This new version of Mephiston has now crossed the Rubicon Primaris and is reborn once more, armed with not only his psychic might but also the added boons that come with being able to draw on the power of the Primaris Space Marines. Inspired by the artwork of Mark Gibbons the model comes with either the option above, plasma pistol at the ready, or whipping blood away from his mouth (like a proper vampire).

Blood Of Baal marks the next step in the Psychic Awakening campaign which is rocking the world of Warhammer 40,000 and it would be really fun to see what else comes out to support the Blood Angels at this point.

They have seriously gone with the vampire look for Mephiston here which I think is rather cool; it adds an element of the Fantastical to these heavily armoured warriors. There is clearly something of the Von Carstein about him!

I like that they've taken some neat cues from the Blood Angel's past with the model, adding in that bright yellow which used to adorn all of their models back in the day. The sword looks particularly awesome reminding me a little of Elric of Melniboné's Stormbringer.

What do you make of the new model?
