We have some summer Halo releases hitting stores now, and one of them is this Brute Chieftan Charge set. We’ve been focusing on some figures with more hierarchal roles for a while now (see: Honor Guard and Ultra Elites), so it’s nice to see the Brute Chieftan join the ranks!
Coming in at 72 pieces, this set will take most builders under fifteen minutes — even less if you’ve completed the original Brute Chopper.
So, yes, this is not the first time we’ve released a Brute Chopper, but there are some important differences aside from the obvious colour change to a beautiful metallic crimson.
For one thing, there are no stickers in this set. All of the details have been painted directly onto the blocks.
There’s a lot of subtle details that take this release to a new level.
Some more custom painting.
Of course, the Chopper is just one part of this set …
The Brute Chieftan has finally arrived! For this figure, we spent countless hours developing a highly custom mould with loads of details. Pretty much everything on here is different from the standard issue Brute. And he comes armed with the long-awaited Gravity Hammer!
Looking forward to seeing the great photos you guys do with this weapon!
For times when you don’t feel like melee combat, the Chieftan also comes armed with a black Brute Spiker.
So that’s it for this review! I hope you guys are as glad as I am to see the Jiralhanae figures getting some love — appropriate, too, being that they supplanted the Sangheili to lead the Covenant military. Let me know what you think of this set in the comments!
