The kit itself is incredibly detailed with tassels, scroll work, aquilas, and other imperial iconography. The arms have several options with both open fist and closed fists, plus a ton of detail to work with. The shoulder pads have similar styling to other dreadnought pads we’ve seen before, but the detail in the aquilas and rivets are exquisite.

There are head options, different plumes, and your choice of ranged weapons to build from.  The detail shows the heresy lightning bolts, perfect for defending Terra and the Emperor.

The terminators are 225 points, have 3 attacks each, and have pretty good stats for hitting most things within the Horus Heresy.
