Hmmmm, his pose makes him look as though hes trying to explain something to a particularly stubborn Karen. The previous Termi Chaplain was far better.

Looks more like he’s just backhanded some heretic with his Crozius to me.

If there are, they wouldn't have announced them yet. We might get an announce on the 17th preview show.

I don't understand the shoulder pad situation... he's got two Crux Terminatus and no spot for chapter matkings.

Honestly prefer the store exclusive version, although this one has a nicer body, since it's not smothered in skull scrolls.

The teeth on this guy seem a bit goofy. Sometimes it looks good, other times its a bit too derp

They've been doing a great job on their terminator sculpts recently with the exception of that hideous librarian mini.

The two crux terminatuses (i?) does bother me though.

x2 crux terminatus?

That is to say, an extra terminatus?

One might just abbreviate that to Exterminatus...

I mean, we haven't seen a first-born marine release that wasn't a special release so calm down. It's a terminator and it's not a tactical marine that are the ones folks are complaining about getting squatted.

I’ll be replacing one with a Deathwatch pad anyway, but it is mildly annoying.

Its a very strange terminator. I think they've forgotten how to sculpt them.

It isn't just the double crux. The double light fixtures are strange as well (usually just one, or none), and the shoulders are set a fair bit higher (not just the pauldrons, but the left shoulder seem to be set at eye-level). No idea what the 'bridge' is above the cowl either, nor why the helmet is set so much further back than is typical.

Paint job is odd as well. Despite the blue shoulder splash, he looks like he belongs in the Black Legion. Though if you flattened the armor out, all the 'edge highlighting' would make you think he's made out of blackboard, already chalked up with drawings.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Spoiler:


Eh. The double light fixtures have been used for a few years now. A similar chaplain had it, the Deathwing Knight leader has it, etc.

YAY Warhammer DAY!

Hoping for big reveals and events and info and stuff - esp since this should be revealing what we will start to see in 2021!


NOTE - Nottingham -home of GW - is on Tier 2 lockdown as of today with rising cases. This MIGHT WELL affect GW in the coming weeks. Right now its mostly increasing social lockdowns and even at tier 3 industry, schools and such remain functional; however if cases rise the city could be locked down in full.

Maybe it has 2 different crozaeus pads and a normal one, and they just used both the decorated ones?

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

This. I noticed it with the Terminator Librarian too - it's like they're trying to hide that Terminators are being scaled up so they don't look weedy next to Primaris. Trouble is, the proportions are thrown out of whack as a result, and to my eyes at least, it just doesn't look right.

That, and the double crux, means this is a hard pass for me.

...lastly, come on GW. By all means have a Warhammer Day - but do you not think Halloween has enough of its thunder stolen by Christmas and Thanksgiving already?!

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...

Doesn't this company know how to make ANYTHING else?

What exactly was the point of Primaris, Truescale if you will, if they're also going to continue to mix the scales?

What exactly is the plan here, are they just throwing stuff at the wall with no consideration?

I'm getting strong ETB vibes emanating from this guy, the pose is so awkward. The skull helmet screams derp too.

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:

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

He's nice looking. It's unfortunate though that he's so very similar to the store only chaplain. He's essentially just the same model in a different pose.

Still get him, given a the chance. Can never have too many chaplains.

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

I like the previous plastic Termy Chaplain, but this one isn't nearly as busy as that one, and I think that's a good thing.

And still not a regular Marine.
