A lot of the newer plastic characters are lacking a certain "character", for want of a better term, that the older metal/resin models had in spades. You can tell straight away that this guy was designed on a computer rather than the traditional sculpting method.

I mean, when you compare it to the Termie Chappie below, there really is no comparison:



no, for one thing the crozus on the new one is straight

Just a Combi-Flamer - the Cataphractii / Tartaros / Chaos Terminator Combi weapons look like that (as does the Blood Angels Librarian).

it's actually proably easier to mod a combi weapon like that, I'm already thinking of modding it to a combi melta.

The new marine characters are $40 USD apiece.
Good chance this model will be at least that much.


Not the generic ones. Only the named primaris. And the most recent comparable model was also 35.

A bit too similar to the SKULLZ guy from a few years back, which is one of the few marines I still actually own (one of the few others being the gunslinger primaris chaplain as well).

I am a sucker for skull- headed marines in black armor with close combat weapons though, so there's a good chance I'll still get this guy...

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

I don't think that's fair. Most of this year's ETB kits look loads better than this new guy.
Better pose, anatomy and overall construction.

... Am I only one that wonders why that chaplain has Crux Terminatus on both of its shoulders?

He's trying to even out the fact that neither Tartatos or Cataphactii suits have one for some reason.


Because those patterns were pre-heresy. Crux Terminatus have a sliver of The Emperor’s armour in them and so only appear on Indomitus pattern armour as, well, He doesn’t need His armour anymore...

And that's why there was never a Forgeworld upgrade kit with crux shoulders. Wait, no...


The first Tartaros kit Forge World released was obviously a post-Heresy kit with the Crux Terminatus and Imperial Eagles on the chest, which was in practice replaced by the Horus Heresy kit (and later the plastic HH kit). That they are specially linked to the Indomitus pattern armour is obviously incorrect (as it was also used pre-Heresy, so the suits wouldn't have had any Cruces then), but otherwise the explanation makes sense.

You’re right, it wasn’t totally fair.

I was thinking specifically of the recent Terminator Librarian that suffered from a similar awkward pose, which turned out to be ETB.

I believe the original Warhammer Day model was going to be the Catachan Officer, which would've made me a lot happier - of course, being another Marine model just saved me £40.

My guess is since this one looks very, very, very, similar to the last Terminator Chaplain promotion model - to the point it took me reading this place to figure out they're not the same model - it was originally meant as a replacement to that.

What's interesting is the lack of an Age of Sigmar model, since they've rolled one out for the last two 'Warhammer Day(s)' if I remember right.

You just described terminators. Terminators have always looked extremely goofy and super-deformed.

Not sure who you are responding to Cronch?

Terminators will always have a place in my heart, regardless of the anatomy issues. The Rogue Trader metal Termie box set was a very proud purchase of mine back in the late 80’s. The current plastic loyalist & Chaos kits look fantastic to me, this guy is a step or two backwards, design wise.

This guy is no different to the other, horrible designs of terminators. Like, without nostalgia goggles they are just bad models, and always have been.

Right, okay.

So when I like certain Terminators, but not others, I must be wearing or removing my “nostalgia goggles”.

A marine army can never have too many Chaplains, Techmarines and Apotecharies IMO

I mean... from a technical viewpoint, you're not wrong, there's no way the proportions have ever made sense when you try and figure out how a human build would fit their arms and legs into the armour. But, like it or not, that classic bulk is part of the charm for many - myself and Undead Love-Machine included, it seems.
The changes in proportion in these newer models mean that charm is lost.

Sergeant Ripper Jackson was intended to be the store opening models while the Catachan Colonel had "Store Anniversary" on the boxes I've seen, meaning he was intended for that.

I believe the last four limited edition minis were:

1. A Catachan.
2. A Sister of Battle.
3. A Space Marine.
4. Another Catachan.

So yeah. I think they know how to do more than Space Marines.
