Continuing the guides for producing pre-Heresy armour, next in line we have Mark IV:Maximus.
The Maximus suit saw heavy production towards the end of the Great Crusade, so was very common amongst legions involved in the Horus Heresy.
Thanks to the Red Scorpion upgrade kit produced by Forgeworld, this set of armour is very easy to create, although there’s always room for improvement and variation. You can literally equip your entire army by purchasing the Red Scorpion kit, which gives you Mark IV chests and heads. There’s also a alternative head in the Black Templar upgrade sprue with the more ‘snouty’ beak plate on the helmet.
