Games Workshop produces a tabletop science fiction wargame called Warhammer 40,000. It’s set in the distant, grimy future. Players build models used to represent space marines, vehicles, aliens, and supernatural monsters on the miniature battlefield.
By far the most time-consuming aspect of getting a Warhammer 40,000 miniature ready for the tabletop battlefield is painting it. For the most part, players spend more time painting their armies then they do playing the game.
This Pop! version is the same Primaris Intercessor figure Funko released prior, only primed and ready for you to paint. Normally a Funko Pop! figure is painted by workers in Vietnam and China who I am sure are paid a fair and living wage for their labor. Right?
This special unpainted figure will be available on Warhammer Day, June 29 at Warhammer and Games Workshop stores. It will also be available from the official Games Workshop website.
I want one. Not to paint, but to leave it as-is. I think it looks good just the way it is.
As a Funko Pop! collector, I wish Funko would release more figures like this. They could make it an alternate chase figure.
So what is a chase figure?
A chase figure is an alternate version of a regular figure made in fewer quantities. Collectors “chase” after them as they are harder to find. When Funko makes one, it identifies it with a special sticker on the box window indicating its chase status.
