Today I want to show you my Artellus Numeon - i liked this character since his first appearance in Promethean Sun - and he has a volkite-spear - who couldn't love him for that!
I won't spoiler too much of his story - if you are interested, he is featured in Promethean Sun, Vulkan Lives and Deathfire.
Lord-Protector of Hesiod, Vulkan's Equerry, Commander of the Pyre Guard
"We have all burned. Down in the fire pits, or from the brander’s iron in the solitorium, we have all touched the fire. It leaves scars, even for us. We carry them proudly, with honour.

They are a memorial in flesh, a physical reminder of everything we have lost, a burn even we fire-born cannot endure without pain."
- First Captain Artellus Numeon
Born on Terra as opposed to Nocturne, Numeon was a veteran member of the Legion and served as Lord Protector of Hesiod, Captain of the 1st Company Firedrakes, Equerry to the Primarch Vulkan, and commander of the elite Pyre Guard. Following the Drop Site Massacre, Numeon and a sparse number of Salamanders survived, fearing Vulkan dead (or captured) and vowing to exact vengeance on the traitor forces. Numeon organized the retreat of the remaining Salamanders (as well as surviving Raven Guard and Iron Hands) off Isstvan V and onto the warship Fire Ark. His ultimate fate following the events of the Horus Heresy is recorded elsewhere, ...
It was pretty cool to convert Vulkan He'stan - a great model, he makes an awesome base for any power armoured Salamanders Praetor in my opinion. The helmet is from the Mark II command set, the shield from the Firedrake Terminators.
Hope you enjoyed him!
