Really like that Captain with the cloak thrown over his shoulder. Very unique Banner guy needs a gun transplant... don't like the Tirgis pattern compared to the other FW bolt pistol design on the character upgrade pack.
As for the Mino brass sheet, I really like how they did the swirly pattern in the "sprue" edge! I hope they do more of that in the future, it's a great use of the material.
The command set is okay, but there is many other infantry kits that I would prefer to buy over this one. A whole command squad would have kicked ass, especially since they already have an apothecary.
EDIT: Dat swirly pattern indeed. Well done FW.
FW is doing great with character models. First the Apothecaries, now these guys.

I seriously loving the Mk. IV set. I can see so many pre-Heresy/Heresy Emperor's Children players using these, especially the Captain. Loving the little details, including the left gauntlet of the Captain (digital weapons?) and the revamp of the old 2nd edition-style backpacks (which mostly just seems to be scaling them up a smidge and sharpening the details so that they fit with the current styles). Nice work, FW!
I had a feeling it wouldn't be a full squad once they released the Apothecaries separately... it would have been neat to do the full squad with Champion etc. in one place but this'll do.
Just noticed the Captain doesn't have any iron halo markings on him. That's kind of a let-down, good thing I have a billion halos left over from all those Termi kits I bought back in the day
I don't like the Ultramarine bling but those mk. IV command models are nifty!
Not wanting to be the debbie downer (well...kinda), but I just can't get into these releases. For a while now almost all of them have just been reiterations of minor SM armor/weapon variants for everything, a retro resculpt for the predator, and transfers/brass etch for forgettable sideshow chapters. We're getting a lot of stuff to play Space Marine Dress-up with, and they're all well done models, but in the end it's all still rather similar Space Marine power armor for the most part (at least with most guard regiments they look radically different, i.e. Krieg vs Catachan as opposed to MkIV vs MkVII armor).
TL; DR: FW makes great sculpts, but I just can't bring myself to care about Space Marine fashion accessory set #4172 "Summer Centurions".

This isn't a dig at 3 star project logs, I just expect forgeworld to be star standard.

I'm not sure if FW has advance info on GW's products or not, but even if they can *absolutely, positively* make sure their new vehicles/units/characters are worth it, they're not about to release them now. It's bad marketing to promote something now, if people are going to save their money until 6th anyway..
Will decide once I see the parts. The holding helmet hand is cool but since I have no similar armour in my army then it's a bit of a waste. If that could be replaced easily enough with another helm then I am game.
Love the captain.
The past few marine releases have been really popular. I was at Warhammer World last week collecting my apothecaries and when I asked about the possibility of an extra set they said there was currently a 3-4 week waiting on them. If they're selling that well they'll keep doing them.

I love these command models. £25 is a bit expensive but you get what you pay for in quality and design I think. FW really are making me want to start a PH army but my wallet refuses to let me.
Great sculpts and those brass-etch pieces are nudging me closer and closer to a Minotaurs army. The small shields on their arms would be just the thing for Raptors or Mentors though.
LOVE the command models, a bit disappointed by the price but i will still be picking them up.
