Are you sure? It doesn’t particularly look that way looking at the old model, and the article says this:
He also lost a hand fighting Imotekh the Stormlord since he last got a model – a nugget of lore that’s been faithfully represented on his new miniature.

Yeah, you can see it clearly on the 360 pic on the GW store. The old art has the robot arm too.

To me all these marines look the same, the more busy and bespoke the model design gets, the more it all starts to blur together. The difference between Black Templars, Dark Angels, and Blood Angels is sort of negligible at this point.

While the new Helbrecht model is fantastic, I'm not a fan of these dioramas as game pieces.

This model will look better in a display cabinet rather than on the tabletop. Fight a faction other than Orks and this model looks out of place.

So far though, GW is is batting 1000 with the Black Templars.

Helbrecht looks fantastic, possibly the best primaris named character model so far IMO (when he has his hat on). I like how his combi looks like a melta rifle/auto bolt rifle - would be cool if Primaris finally get access to combi's in the format of their own special weapons.

If the pintle multi melta is a real thing and not just a kitbash, it's going to be interesting if it is available for all Primaris vehicles or just Repulsors as it would presumably fit on any of the Gladiator/Impulsor/Repulsor variant hatches in place of the generic stubber option.

I imagine GW is somehow gonna make it proprietary to the Repulsor.

Easily the best marine character I've seen in a long time. The bare face admittedly looks like poo but that helmet? Eyyyyy that's a spicy meatball!

I want that mini for my indomitus marines, don't even plan to use it but it's lush.

He even had bionics as wargear in the 4th ed. Codex: Black Templars.

With Mephiston also being based off of classic art, and also being one of the best primaris SC sculpts, they could do some other amazing characters.

Calgar looks plain and dull in comparison in regards to his sculpt.

Azrael based off either of these two pieces of art?!?!? OOOOOF. I approve of this direction and sculpting prowess.

Seems easy to do if the Ork is designed to overlay the rock base. Swap in a different bit of rock for the foot and sword point to rest on, and good to go.

It's not like there is an 'alternate corpse' on the Primaris Captain with the Bladeguard gear.

He just finished killing all the Orks and now he's getting his blade wiped down before coming for you!

Could even go for this, which would make for a more interesting model than either of those imo

There's loads of amazing art for Azrael to be fair. I quite like the more statesmen like models for him as he is more of a tactician than necessarily mixing it up on the front lines himself, or a mix in general of his art. Either ways, a model based on classic art of him would be outstanding. Trying to think of even more classic marine SC artwork that would be an amazing model.

There's a mini based on the art I linked (or the art is based on the mini, I think that's more likely actually as with most of the named marine characters from the MG era), I was just having a joke : )

I haven't looked at the azrael mini for so long it went straight over my head

He's basically holding the cloth there for when he slides it out ( from my perspective anyway ).

My god that helbrecht model is amazing. I freaking love everything about it. He looks exactly like in the old artwork. And the helmet is truly amazing.

Honestly congrats to the designers of that mini, they really did an outstanding job.

I know, people don't like to see yet again another release for marines, but the black templars are the best marine releases in the primaris era by far in my opinion.
