Amongst the most honoured Space Marines of a Chapter are its Apothecaries. It is their role to to mind the physical well-being of their battle-brothers – this is seen most obviously on the battlefield, where an Apothecary serves as an emergency medic. Their most important duty, though, concerns the dead; an Apothecary can harvest the progenoid organs from a fallen Space Marine, ensuring the creation of further warriors and the continuation of the Chapter.
This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Primaris Apothecary. Strikingly detailed, clad as he is in Mk X power armour, this miniature features far more accoutrements and gadgets than the standard Primaris Space Marine – as befits his battlefield role. Strung around the chest plate are several canopic jars, bearing purity seals: these are filled with progenoid organs that have passed his scrutiny, and will be used in the creation of further Primaris Space Marines. In his right hand he clutches a freshly-hewn organ upon which his gaze is fixed; another canopic jar hangs from his arm, ready. His left arm holds a narthecium, the grisly instrument of his craft, though this can be replaced with an optional absolver pistol (often the last thing a fallen brother will see…)
Adding to the detail and options of this kit are a selection of lamps and surgical inspection lenses, with a chainsaw, injector servo arm, drill and stapler amongst the possible modelling options. As a macabre narrative extra, a slain Space Marine is included with a huge incision made by the Apothecary’s narthecium, to be added to the base.
What's in the box? The Primaris Apothecary comes as 28 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round base. The kit also includes a Ultramarines-Character Transfer Sheet, which features Captain, Chaplain, Librarian and Lieutenant iconography.
