ASTRA MILITARUM: MINKA LESK

Key Features Minka Lesk leaps from Black Library's pages into your Astra Militarum collection – star of tales such as Cadian Honour and Traitor Rock, by Justin D Hill Loads of options – build Minka as a young Whiteshield or storied Captain Minka Lesk. The Last Whiteshield of Kasr Myrak, forged in the fires of the Fall of Cadia, now a Captain in the Cadian 101st Regiment. Lesk owes her meteoric rise through the ranks of the Astra Militarum to her repeated victories in the face of impossible odds, leading her fellow Cadians from the front lines in Humanity's war for survival. This multipart plastic kit builds Minka Lesk, a legendary Cadian officer and star of Black Library fiction. The kit offers an impressive assortment of heads, arms, and accessories, allowing you to represent Minka at different points in her rise through the ranks – from a battle-worn young soldier for your Cadian Shock Troops, to a respected Captain suited for use as a Cadian Castellan on the battlefield. You can choose between a head wearing bandages or a comm-set, a pointing hand or power sword for her right arm, a lasgun or bolt pistol for her left arm, and a combat knife or empty scabbard for her belt. Stood atop a scenic base littered with the rubble, remains, and blasphemous sigils of Cadia's fall, Minka is a fantastic addition to any Astra Militarum army or collection, and a great painting project for fans of her books. This kit comprises 13 plastic components and comes with a Citadel 28.5mm Round Base.
