It's definitely a weird mispack, but hardly the end of the world.

I'd be curious as to how a new BT Marshall made it anywhere near the packing process for the Hexfire sets, especially as the BT box is coming out, what, 3-4 months after Hexfire? You wouldn't think there'd be production samples near a packing area for a new boxed set, and the time gap between releases means that they probably didn't have the BT stuff in production while Hexfire was getting packed.

Getting a SM or Primaris Librarian in there instead of Crowe would make a bit more sense to me, but then it isn't like I'm saying this having seen the inside of the GW factory and knowing how it is organised. It just seems weird as mispacks go, given when things are due to be released.


This is pretty likely to happen for a few reasons:

Nearly all GW products are packed & distributed from Nottingham via shipping containers with lead times measured in weeks. This means in order to get a set like Hexfire or the BT army box set over to Australia or the US in time for a launch, it has to be ready and shipped out a few months earlier. These items would very likely have been packaged well before summer, possibly as early as the start of the year.

To mitigate against risks of a single container being lost or damaged, when possible a company also often won't put all of the same product into the same shipment. For example; rather than sending 1 container full of Ork models and 1 container full of BT Army sets, you instead send out two containers split 50/50 with each. That means there's less risk of a release being totally lost / delayed, but it does mean that a product released later on will need to be packed & shipped out earlier. That way you can easily have July & October releases being packaged at the same time.

It's also more likely that new releases will see more items being packaged at a time than existing ones. GW sales of many older products like Primaris Librarians will be pretty low these days, so when they do run out of stock they don't need as many units made as the new releases do.

Finally, the release schedule may well have changed between the product being manufactured and actually arriving at the regional warehouse.

Grimaldus looks really nice; the minions are IMHO terribly posed (no not because they're stiff like robots, but because they look like someone didn't know how bodies or physics worked when working out the angles and movements)

Not sure what you mean with the physics but the minions are brilliant. I like Grimaldus, but think he could be better, still looks a little generic compared to the regular Chaplain.

He has almost the exact same pose as the Emperor's Champion.

Agreed. If not for his servitors he could easily pass for a regular chaplain.

I like this one quite a lot - the pose works for me as its a religious symbol he is holding up in defiance/denial/blessing.

Servitors are ok too.

Of course the helmet sadly hides his "kind eyes" - would be awesome to get some of the characters from the novel....

Yeah, and still he looks somehow bland. Maybe it is the pose or something but now he is just a Primaris Chaplain nr 2034.

So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

If they had kept to a similar pose I'd agree, but they have made it just too generic in my eyes.

Surely you mean the Juan Diaz one released some time after the first Termie chaplain. Regardless, I think we can (mostly) all agree that Seraphicus ain't the goat (had to look up the Seraphicus model is, D tier imo).

Looks like the weird boot (servitor foot) and W skull (servitor banner) are both crossed off the Rumor Engine list then.

After a revision of classic chaplains models, I have to say, the Power fist classic one is probably my second favourite after the Primaris one (But as a DA player if you put hoods and robes in anything I'm gonna like it)

Well feth me that's gorgeous.

This one I was sure would end up as a diorama mini, but it seems only Helbrecht gets to suffer that fate. Grimaldus on the other hand gets a wonderfully faithful Primaris reinterpretation and a fantastic set of Servitor attendants to boot. The banner is fantastic.

I've not been wowed by the BT stuff so far, but this guy? This guy I'm getting.

Also the trailer used music from Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, which has an absolutely incredible soundtrack. Look it up if you haven't already.

Definitely a nice model, and not everyone needs a tactical rock to leap away from but I have to agree with some of the voices of him being a bit bland or generic. I think it is the pose mirroring basically the indomitus chaplain.

It IS a nice sculpt, tho

I didn't think of that, dang, he really does have the same pose as the Indomitus chaplain... except the Indomitus chap pulls it off better.

I'm gonna paint up this guy, the EC, my Indom Chaplain, and my Captain converted from an Indom Chaplain up into a synchronised command staff. Could chuck in the Primaris Lieutenant too.
