Speaking of things going away, the old $18 emperor's champion is still on the site for those who prefer firstborn (in finecast ) to the probably overpriced new guy

Gotta say, I'm really digging the new BT stuff. If i wasn't holding out for World Eaters (Which, seem more likely than ever thanks to the rumors) I would probably be very tempted.

BT has always been one of the marine chapters I've considered starting, way back to when I got into the Hobby. Happy for all the BT that they are getting this refresh, they really deserve it.

Yeah. He posts his old stuff, talks a little about the history, as well as showing off the new stuff he's been doing.

GW's best artist IMO. Real shame they lost him.

I wonder if the possible rumoured Ancient might look like this seen as they are using a lot of old art work as inspiration at the moment?

They're all right-handed too. You know BT are the kind of chapter that makes all recruits sit on their left hand during training.

Another Black Templar rocking that "behold my stick" look? Meh. Was dumb on the Emperor's Champion, doesn't help Grimaldus either. At least the rest of Grimaldus is decent.

I can see it go away for good. The Templars upgrade sprue is old and unless they redid it without me noticing it's got fairly soft detail and is marginally incompatible with modern normal Marines due to changed peg and hole placement on the torso pieces. The other chapter upgrade sprues are a lot crisper and more modern.

That's true, but in a world in which plastic khorne berserkers, catachan infantry squads, and any number of character models that predate 3rd edition are still sold, the kit offers a lot of variety and is very far from the worst offender as far as old details go, so I hope they keep it around.

If it were only the character models, the Warp Spiders, Vyper and Falcon are all 2nd ed.

Oh, the Vyper and Falcon have aged IMHO remarkably well (except the crew), all things considered, but yeah, those warp spiders... such a shame since eldar I think benefit so much from contemporary sculpting/casting tech. And yeah I'm sure other kits, those were just the ones that came to mind.

Oh, I'm the last one to complain if it does stick around. More options is always better than fewer options. I'm still sad that the old Sisters vehicle sprue is gone. I'd still buy it for the Rhino topper.

The Marshal looks nice. I know he's not exactly like the original, but I think he's successful in looking like the hi-res version of the old one.

Round and angry looking? I mean, who doesn't expect squats to get dwarf face/ancestor face styled helmets? Maybe not for the basic troops, but anyone of rank? I'd call that a given.

I don't expect it, given how GW has been trying to get away from 40k armies having the same aesthetics as AoS armies, as seen with the new, less Marine-y Stormcasts and leaner, more Tolkien-y Orruks. And AoS has the Kharadron, round and angry, with Ancestor-styled helmets.

I don't know, Kharadron have that kind of steampunky flair to their helmets. Irondrakes use the same idea with a clear fantasy look. I don't see why Squats wouldn't have the same with a techy sci-fi look. Same idea, different execution.

I think AoS may be moving away from being Warhammer Fantasy in Space on the Ground as you say but not because they are trying to keep things separate, which they managed just fine with 40k and Fantasy for decades, but because the plan of consciously emulating the success of 40k in any way possible died with the botched launch of AoS and GW is trying to let AoS succeed on its own strengths now. Which to me means that even if they don't want to outright draw on the same sources, they won't go out of their way to avoid it if it's a good fit.

I mean, look at Helbrecht's fancy new helmet. GW hasn't been outright drawing on fantasy/historical design for Space Marines in years. If they wanted to keep everything separate, how could that helmet have happened? In my opinion it's as simple as that it fits Black Templars, so it was done. No matter how the knights from Sigmar's cities feel about unlicensed use of their designs.

...but nobody in AoS has the same Crusader aesthetic as Helbrecht/Black Templars? The humans are much more renaissance.

Oh, they've finally stopped selling the knights from the 90s? In that case forget that I said anything. We'll have to wait for The Old World to stop appearing like vaporware and Brettonians to come back instead.

If you mean the Demigryph Knights, they're still on sale, but they have a much more of a Renessaince-Era tournament Knight, than the Black Templars Crusader aesthetic. But other than that, it's all Greatswords and Pistoliers and and Handgunners and the lot.
