By the way, in the Octarius preview GW teases a Black Templar army box.


Going forwards, we’re looking at ways we can make sure you don’t miss out on other awesome box sets too. So if, for instance, there was a sweet new Black Templars launch box on the horizon (just imagine that!) then that also sounds like the sort of box we’d want to make sure you could all get your hands on.

As someone who typically shakes my head at GW's often unnecessarily extravagant designs, blinged up equipment and daft poses, I'm somehow looking at the new model and thinking it's actually rather... boring.

Would have preferred the laurels to be part of the helm as per the older models. The last version (shown in the article) has a certain elegance to it with that pose. This one seems to have gone for the same effect but it's been marred by the obligatory tactical rock and general bulkiness.

It's not exactly bad, just looks like a fairly run of the mill kitbash.

Not a fan of this re-design, really. The post of the original version had a sense of nobility and chivalry to it, holding his sword aloft in a sort of casual yet proud way without showing off. The pose of the new one really has the usual problems of current designs, with it being obnoxiously emotive - the way he's holding the sword in combination with his stance gives it much more of an unreserved brash, boasting sort of feel, while the position of his legs and other arm at the same time make it feel quite busy and unsophisticated. Things can't just be a simple yet evocative pose anymore, everything has to have sort of forced feel' to it.

It's like it's gone from a believable in-universe pose showing a sense of honour for the Emperor's Chamption, to the sort of thing you'd get as a generic tone-deaf PVP video game's wacky obnoxious victory pose where everything needs to dramatically show off.

Old one is perfection, so this had quite the standard to try and uphold. I’ll stick with my current one thanks tho

Mm yeah, if I was at all likely to collect Templars I'd be minded to rescue a finecast one and rescue the head, torso and sword blade then rebuild him using... Probably deathwatch arms and legs.

Well, it isn't any better than the already available current iteration bar being plastic and a bit bigger, if that sort of thing floats your boat.
I like the left hand with the beads as well... Erm, otherwise the older one is just a bit nicer overall I find.

The floaty papery bits and hover wreath do nothing for me tbh.

New model is... fine. The current one is exquisite though, so it's hard to top.

Or are you talking about the actual original model, which is this:

Whenever I see this model the first thing I hear in my head is "I see you Schwartz is as big as mine!".

Much prefer the latter version that came out, and wasn't Limited. I have two: One as normal, and the other with a Jump Pack.

The parchment flapping about looks fake, and the folds of the cloth too sharp. GW's new sculpting/casting techniques don't do cloth very well.

The floaty bits are terrible -- purity seals, laurels, etc. They ruin the weight of the model's pose and obfuscate its profile.

The pose isn't great either, as the left arm is at an odd, half-cocked angle. The relative position of the legs and arms places all of the weight on the model's right side.

The tabard going under the chest armour and poking out of the stomach is a bad look and no one can change my mind. Please stop.

Looks okay.

The pose is a bit awkward.

That's not how you hold a sword if you plan to actually hit someone with its edge. He's basically just holding it as "hey, look at my neat sword!"

Not a fan. Why not just rescale the current one into plastic? That Juan Diaz one is a masterpiece. The sword is at the wrong angle (complete with confusing Latin. "Light Emperor" makes no sense. At least "Emperor King" on the current one hits the ear right), the He-Man pose is not a scratch on the current one, where he looks like he's relentlessly coming for you and about to feth you up. Unnecessary ribbons all over him. The list goes on...

Something about primaris looks off to me; the fat ankles and awkward leg poses don't make for a good silhouette. I will always take little marines over these.

I think the flapping streamers mess with the silhouette too much for my liking, though that's in all likelihood less distracting when seeing the model as a 3D object and not a still image.

It's a nice model, but the pose is not as good as the old one. The old emperors champion is perfection apart from its scale.

Also the new one is holding his sword wrong, what's up with that? No skilled swordsman would ever hold his weapon that way, ever. It's an easy fix, but still....

Why does he have straps on his greaves/chestplate? Are they the grimdark equivalent of extraneous non-functional zips?

Why doesn't he have the gorget which all other Mk10 plate features? (the artwork has it)

Is the belt supposed to be a replacement for the belt/waist section built into the armour why would you want that?

Why is his holster in such an inaccessible place?

I saw this as well. Hype indeed.

Glad to see they Bumped my boy EC into Primaris. I was considering making my own conversion but now I don't have to. Would love to see some more new stuff for my BT boys, but if this is all the new we get in a new BT box, as long as it comes with Assault Intercessors, I'm in!

He's not holding his sword as if he's fighting, he's raising it in acknowledgement.

The best description I can give is that he's doing a Lion-o
