Spoiler:

The Emperor’s Champion is a paragon of faith and fury whose appearance on the battlefield strikes fear into the hearts of those who oppose him. And, rest assured, he won’t be standing alone.

Stay tuned to Warhammer Community, where the faithful are sure to receive further blessings very shortly.

* Portable spotlight for tabletop encounters available separately.


Figured since it's not Kill Team related it could get its own thread. Looks like "Miniature Monday" is back on the menu!
Warhammer Community's Kill Team: Octarius Article wrote: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.



Spoiler:

Spoiler:

You may have seen during our codex road map last week that the Black Templars are on the way soon, with a brand new Emperor’s Champion leading the charge and some whispers on the wind of a launch box in the works.

So to whet your appetite, here’s the spectacular cover art for the upcoming Codex Supplement: Black Templars. Chain your bolter to your wrist and put your crusading pants on, we’re going smiting.*
True heirs of Sigismund may notice that the gentleman in the middle has distinctly black-and-red shoulder pads, which mark him out as one of the elite Sword Brethren. But doesn’t he also appear to be wearing the armour of a Primaris Space Marine? How curious.

Spoiler:


The rumours have been circulating for a while now. But with the codex supplement announced on our road map and new cover art revealed, the fervent prayers of the faithful have been heard – the Black Templars are on their way.

What’s more, they’re bringing some shiny heretic-purging wargear with which to immolate anyone foolish enough to besmirch the glorious name of the God-Emperor. Behold the Primaris Initiate with pyreblaster!
Flamers are cool and all – if it’s possible for a weapon that sprays liquid fire to be ‘cool’ – but when it comes to delivering fiery death to the masses, the Black Templars prefer to dial it up to 11.
Spoiler:

It’s got a sturdier design and longer barrel than a traditional flamer, so the pyreblaster can hurl promethium-based annihilation with devastating force. Those wielding these weapons can make their blazing presence known from further away while searing through an enemy’s armour with even greater vim. If you like your heretic steak ‘well done’, look no further than this formidable weapon.
You might have noticed that the pyreblaster comes complete with a chain attaching it to the warrior’s wrist in the traditional manner of the Black Templars – perhaps that’s a hint at what else is on the way. Or maybe this particular chap is just prone to misplacing his belongings.

We’ll have more intel on what awaits you in the new Black Templars codex supplement – and anything else that may be accompanying it – as we near its release date.

It’s beautiful! It captures the feel and pose of the original and doesn’t overload it with too much bling. This is a perfect example of how to update a classic mini.

I think it should have either been closer to the pose of the original, or completely different. They’ve changed things slightly with the pose, and I think they all make it overall worse than the original, personally. It’s alright, but it was always gonna be hard to top the last one.

I knew it was only a matter of time before BT got their EC's revamped into plastic. I'm glad they kept the same style of helm as the original, though is it just me or do the lens seem more round? I would have preferred it if it was more sleek/slit like. Overall, not bad, but I feel I still like the OG sculpt more. Plastic is definitely a plus over finecast though.

I need another angle, the wrist in back looks too thin and the twist to the hand I odd. Plus is he leaning forward? the greaves look strange. I'm sure it's just because of the angle, but who know.

Wonder if this one will have a bum? The original didn’t.

Not entirely sold on the chest plate being so plain. Think it could’ve done with some interesting detail.

I concur with the consensus, I think the previous iterations were better. The chestplate, for example, is too unadorned ; its missing something.

IF they did anything on the chest plate then it would stop so many conversions or uses in armies besides the Black Templars. Here we will see some lovely freehand work from real artists....not me though.

All changes with the original have been for the worse, TBH. But is not a bad miniature, difficult to be better than the old one, it was perfect.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

The current Emperor's Champion has nothing on his chestplate as well, just a gold chain around his neck

The armour is interesting, it blends primaris style with some callbacks to the old design. The pose seems a tad awkward, though I need to see 360.

I really wish they would bring back the original idea that other chapters had Emperor's Champions too.

The most internet thing ever: Claim a non-existent consensus to legitimize a purely subjective opinion.

There is no consensus. There is groupthink between you and the guy who actually had the original thought that you're parroting. Maybe that's what you meant?

By the way, based on the backpack, this is a Primaris Marine.

I would find it odd if THE iconic Black Templar model would not be able to ride in a Land Raider Crusader.

Do you think the backpack is just aesthetics? Or will we see Firstborn transports being able to carry Primaris? Or he is Primaris and has to take Primaris rides?

Top half of the sculpt is ace, let down by the lower half. The legs lack that slightly pointed style that the original has that made it seem more knightly, which is very strange because the detail shots show that they put that detail into the elbows. Tactical rock makes the whole thing seem a bit too "By the power of Greyskull".

Still a brilliant model, just fails to surpass the original

The leg armour too is indicative of being Primaris.

I dig it. It's a beautiful model. My only critique is... I wish they would have left the rosary around his neck to add a little detail to the open, flat chest plate.

I really wish they would get rid of primaris/non-primaris distinction in the rules. It can be fluff justification for some units having slightly better stats and different gear, but that's it.

One thing I'd change is the robe. The chest piece seems blocky and I don't like how it wraps around his legs. The poor dude is gonna trip.

Also, the legs seem weird. Very thick and blocky armor, and the knee pad doesn't seem to be a separate piece from the leg armor?

Otherwise, love it.



I hope we get some backpack options, if they release an upgrade sprue. I want some braziers

He's definitely Primaris. I do not think we'll see a change in rules, so no Land Raider for him. The Black Templars book will be a supplement to the Space Marines Codex.

I immediately had the thought that the Armour of Faith is no longer the Armour of Faith. How could it be if the Emperor's Champion is now a Primaris Marine?

Times are changing for Space Marines... even though no one asked for it.

I thought there was more than one armor of faith? I know there's a story about an ork who captures the champion and then makes a suit of armor from the armor of faith.

So it's not as bad as the BT losing a single suit of armor passed down from generation to generation.

I'm getting confused with some of the conversations in this thread.

When you are talking about the 'original' model, are you talking about this one (the on on the article):



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

I assume most people are talking about the one on the article or the one that is basically on the GW store right now.

Every Black Templar Crusade got their own set of Champion relics. Even if it is not stated somewhere, that is how it must be, as BT are constantly crusading in smaller fleets.

And how else would you be able to fit out 10.000 marines?
