View Full Version : Chaplain Cassius???

Did anyone else get a Chaplain Cassius model that does NOT come with the combiflamer component?

Mine comes with a bolt pistol, but seems to be missing "Infernus."

There have been several threads on this recently.

The bolt pistol cassius is the older model from the time when he didnt have a combi flamer. Rules changed and so did the model. I understand its quite a rare thing to have these days as they are not making anymore.

I believe the exact reverse happened when the model was first released with the 4th ed rules, and everyone was confused when the model came with a Combi Flamer instead of a Bolt Pistol :evilgrin:

So strange, I'll have to call my local GW and see if they have the combi-flamer variant...

Some pictures of the old model come with the combi flamer, but i think most of the models had the bolt pistol. Or at least mine did.

As someone above said, when the model was first released he came with a combi-flamer, but his rules only equipped him with a bolt pistol and no options to upgrade. They later changed his model to equip him with a bolt pistol to bring him inline with his rules.

But in a flurry of brilliance, they decided with these latest rules to give him the combiflamer back, thus making the retconned boltpistol model obsolete.

I hope I've used 'retconned' in the right context....

Retroactive Continuity?
Don't think it works here.

Though does he also have a bolt pistol as well as combi-flamer, or just the combi-flamer now?
Because if it's just the one, then someone didn't get the memo about the model change.

Potato's pretty much got it... You can actually find some of these rarities on ebay from time to time... They are pricey though- a real collectors item. I doubt you'd wanna open the blister if you got your hands on it.

Incorrect, in his entry he still has a bolt pistol with his infernus
