This boxed set contains enough plastic components to assemble five (5) Space Marine Scouts with either Bolters, Shotguns, or Bolt Pistols and Close Combat Weapons. All models are supplied unpainted and require assembly.
In most Chapters, as a Space Marine initiate completes his training, he prepares for battle alongside his brother Space Marines. His first combat experience will be in the Space Marine Scouts, a corps of lightly armed troops whose role is to fight ahead of the main battle lines and clear the way for the Chapter's advance.
However, in the Black Templars Chapter, there are no units of just Scouts. Instead, recruits go through grueling trials onboard the ships of the Crusade fleets. If they survive these tests of strength, endurance, martial skill, and faith, they fight as Neophytes (what other Chapters would call Scouts). As Neophytes, they will fight alongside their Black Templars mentors as a part of their Crusader Squads until they die or prove themselves worthy in battle.
Space Marine Scouts may be added to your Space Marine army as a Troops choice. In a Black Templars army, Space Marine Scout models represent Neophytes and can be included as a part of a Crusader Squad, which is a Troops choice.
