Because...well, I guess it would be fun! The perfect cross over; Warhammer and Digimon.

Apparently no one here reads classics, because to me it looks like 1:1 copy of this design and no one suggested it yet:

My hunch says the model has too many injection molding witness marks to be a resin model. Seems kinda low detailed too. Plastic model most probably.

I have no idea why people keep repeating this (subconscious price tag remorse?) because in last 10-15 years, 95% of low detail, horrible inflow ports, foot thick capes, ugly paintjobs on GW products were all resin. Plastic doesn't have these problems, yes, even painters are far superior than FW ones for some reason

Really? If we had common sense we'd not be buying over expensive models for a poor rules system when we had a pile of shame already.
I thought the GW view was that we had the opposite of common sense.

Observation from the Deimos Rhino Kit, which I apologise if it has already been observed.

But…the sprue with the sides and exhausts is labelled Deimos. Not Rhino. Deimos.

And looking at the rest of the kit? I’m now wondering if this is, in time, going to replace the existing Rhino?

Oooh. Don’t suppose anyone has a Deimos and a SoB Rhino kit knocking about, and might be able to say if they’re compatible?

During the Crusade, yes. At least as A Legion.

As an honorific for individuals? I’m genuinely not sure, but perhaps it’s not explicitly ruled out.

Many individual marines were granted the honour of bearing the Aquila, yes. For a Praetor or other ranking officer in a Legion it seems appropriate that they might have stood out enough to get one.

I could be misremembering something, but I thought it was specifically the double headed eagle that was unique to the Emperor’s Children. Single headed eagles, such as Garro’s chest piece, were used by others.

Upswept wings is the Palantine Aquila, straight wings is the Imperial Aquila.
The former was used more commonly as the Heresy went on as a sign of loyalty to the Emperor whereas the latter was stamped everywhere anyway so it didn't really mean that much.

The one thing the Emperor's Children were also explicitly allowed to do was wear Aquilas on their chest plates. Other Legions could wear Aquilas as honour badges or as production stamps on equipment but only the IIIrd were allowed to wear it on their armour.
So for reference the Palantine Aquila looks like this:
Spoiler:

And the Imperial Aquila has straight wings like these:
Spoiler:


The third example still has raised wings but they aren't curved like the first. In fairness it does get very confusing, especially when using the 40k Wiki which is trash and even Lex is a bit outdated on the Aquila page.

Looking at the new weapons sprue for the Contemptor (Kheres etc etc) are there no shoulder mounts? Thus making it useless if buying one of those and pairing it with a FW chapter specific Contemptor?

I wonder if they're selling the 2 sprues together as a set?

Good call, I had not considered that. I wonder what the price point will be to make it a worthwhile purchase over the £36 whole plastic Contemptor.

The plastic Contemptor weapons are exactly the same as the resin ones.

Yes, but it looks like only the autocannon / lascannon sprue has the bits that go into the shoulder pads.

Nvm.
Some of the FW product images have the shoulder hinge and some don't.

Yeah, it is a bit hit on miss on which appear to have the shoulder hinge and then actually either do or dont. I have a SoH FW dread due for delivery so will find out about that one in a few days.
