Metal Rogue Trader Warhammer 40K Brother Froth Space Marine

This guy was a 1987 GW sculpt! He was shown as Brother Froth initially, but by 1988 he had changed his name to Brother Sheer and acquired a sight on his gun and a fatter pauldron – likely to fix a casting issue with the old design. At any rate this is the earlier iteration! I can’t find him in the 1991 catalogue unlike most of his brothers.

Someone at some point seems to have filed down the studs on his left pauldron.
