This scan comes from the French WD and no, I don't have pictures from the ervitor who stands left of him.

I wonder if this a regular Chaplain or Grimaldus the new BT special Character.

Avian
25-06-2005, 18:10
I wonder what that thing beside him is.

I like this one, it has none of the faults of the other model, apart from still not having a skull helmet. Don't chaplains have any standards these days?

"Grimaldus" sounds like a hunchbacked circus performer. :p

dienekes96
25-06-2005, 18:22
I'd assume it's Grimaldus, based on the copious BT sigils all over him. I wonder if some of his servitors are next to him, out of frame :( I'd like to see them, as well.

I like it... but I don't love it.

Thanks for sharing,
Chuck

Its better then the other one but doesent make me go wow.

I like the bottom of his Cronies Arceriam (I have no idea of the spelling. Will edit if correct name is provided)

plasmadaemon
25-06-2005, 18:26
much better than the 'old' new one, but i still think it lacks a punch.

it's like he's saying: "wow! look at me! i'm a big sm and i'm posing angrily at you!"

That is a huge improvement! I love the way the scriptures cascade down the armour, it's a lot like the one in the SM codex ( the illustration )

Bought!

Funny that, despite being the most faithfull chapter, the black templars look damn chaotic.

25-06-2005, 19:06
Hmm.. crozius pose is very like the Space Wolf Sternhammer's crozius/hammer. I don't like the trailing tabard with his litanies/seals down in the dust. Better than the sneak peek statue but still doesn't fill me with huge enthusiasm.

And the question really needs to be asked: why does this man apparently have a toilet roll hung around his neck?

What does the French text half visible on the right say? And what's on his left? Inquiring minds need to know.

Brimstone
25-06-2005, 19:28

Probably one of his servitors carrying a relic. ;)

nice looking model. Just wondering how this guy will walk without tripping on all that stuff hanging off of him.. then again the other chappy had the same problem.

They are going the wrong direction with the chappies imho. Need to make them cleaner, at least as clean as the new Cassius fig. How are chappies suppossed to run around and whack stuff if they have to deal with all that bling? :P I'll still buy the other chappy and convert him though, just cut out everything except the legs and body and redo the mini with plastics and gs for the tabard for a nice champ or something.

Why the heck do you need a chain for the plasma pistol? It's not like he's going to use it as some sort of sling.. or is he ;0

25-06-2005, 21:16
Not a bad model by anymeans, and compared to the other new chaplain this is a masterpiece. :rolleyes:

Probably manage to rework it to fit my Pre-Heresy stuff. :evilgrin:

Lord Setra
25-06-2005, 21:20
Wow that is really nice, much better than the other chaplain who is floating about just now.

Maybe it's like a bike chain. You know, so he can lock it up when he goes out.

A vast improvement on Reverend Static (http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4868&page=1) but still not got that magic something. Might just be the quality of the pic or the paint scheme but something dates this figure back to the 2nd Ed era.

I think robe lacks a bit of detail. It could be due to the paintjob though. I can't really judge him before I see him "in person", but for now I'm not that impressed.

Nid
26-06-2005, 00:13
Robe is too long or the legs are GRIEVOUSLY too short.

Nazerth
26-06-2005, 00:22
I've gotta agree with Nid here. Unless he's doing some sort of squatting exercise that we can't see due to the angle, those legs are way out of proportion compared to the body... well, more out of proportion than the average marine's.

That aside, it's a pretty good sculpt. Better than the other chaplain we've seen thus far...

26-06-2005, 00:31
I think our standards have gotten high indeed if people don't look at this model and say...wow. I love the old MK6 breast plate armour. Also this seems to be the first visual confirmation of the BT all having their weapons chained to their arms.

Damn the Templars..where's my beloved Dark Angels? :cries:

Black DH templ.
26-06-2005, 00:33
I think all the details are too big, and makes him look cluttered. Had the chain and all the templar symbols been less prominent he would have looked natural and cool. Now he just looks ok.

philbrad2
26-06-2005, 00:46
Can I ask where this came from? Looks like a WD photo to me.


I wonder what that thing beside him is.

I'm with BRIM looks like the stump of a icon/banner pole, could well be this is Grumbleduke of whatever his name is that BRIM mentions in his BT rumour thread (http://www.portent.net/forums/showthread.php?t=4888&page=1&pp=10)

No he's not, not this Chaplain.

This one is definitely from a magazine scan. French WD or a French GW publication judging text to his right.

What is with this disturbing new "thick haft" trend?

I mean, I understand that some of it is probably due to wanting increased strength/model durability, but, couldn't they at least try to not sculpt it as appearing that thick?

If nothing else, give everyone freakishly long fingers! Close that fist! Hold that weapon securely!

And at least this one's got a somewhat skull-like/fear inducing helmet...

Sorry...

New Cult King
26-06-2005, 01:50
What is up with the legs on this new breed of power armoured marines?

Apart from his little stumpy trashcan legs, I like him. I also agree he needs a skull helmet.

grizzly ruin
26-06-2005, 02:00
This one is much better than the other one.

However I do agree with the following summarized comments.

1) Needs a skull helmet, or no helmet at all.

2) Robe too LOOOONG. :eyebrows:

3) I like the chain on the plasma pistol, I don't like that it's 2 meters long apparently.

4) Weapon shaft way too thick.

I was wondering the same thing, there is chunky but this is getting obese. It doesn't look right. It disrupts the scaling.

self biased
26-06-2005, 06:49
not shabby. at least he's wearing black like a proper chaplain. all too many times i've seen so many chaplains painted by overzealous fellows in "non-standard" colors. usually they look like ass.

Insane Psychopath
26-06-2005, 08:06
Right I thing I'll start my 4th Templar army now & not bother with Legion of the Damned.

Is that not for a White Dwarf???? just I see a topic about it on Bolter & Chiansowerds

People are saying about Skull Helment... could easly paint the face plate (sp) with bone colour, well that what I'll be doing for him as well as give him a Bolt Pistol.

Yes, the picture is from the french WD.

26-06-2005, 08:51
So is there a shot of the servitor to the left of him?

Lord Setra
26-06-2005, 09:45
I think so, and it looks like it is carrying some large piece of masonary:wtf:

plasmadaemon
26-06-2005, 09:57
burnt masonary :p

i really like bling-bling chaplains, i even convereted my chaplain on bike to have chaos legs with all the arows shaven off.

btw are there any french people here with the french WD? can you tell us what new stuff is there?

Brimstone
26-06-2005, 10:28
Guy's I am led to believe that this is not just a common Chaplain but he is one of the special characters for the new range.

As I said on the first page it's most probably Chaplain Grimaldus a SC.


If my assumptions are correct then that could be a bodyguard of some kind. Arbites or Sword Bretherin?

It's most probably one of his three Cenobyte Servitors that carry the last surviving relics of Hive Helsreach’s Temple of the Emperor Ascendant into battle.

Brizzle
26-06-2005, 10:29
He looks too Black Templary to be anything but a BT special character.

Sadly, I find that this guy looks uglier by the minute, versus the other new one which is actually growing on me (it just needs a slight pose alteration, too bad it looks to be all metal).

26-06-2005, 15:34
well, i dunno what you would need a zealotous servitor for, i mean you got a whole chapter of over exited monks to take care of the chapels, why bother using servitors,

Brizzle
26-06-2005, 16:09
Those over excited monks are too busy fighting or preparing to fight. After all, the BTs don't do anything else. Anyway, I think the chappy having servitors is cool and original. It just sets the Templars even more apart.

American football, a contradiction terms if ever there was one. Entertaining fact of the day, the england rugby team went over in the 80's I believe it was and played the best of the best american football players in a game of each type. The rugby players walked over them in both games. Nuff Said.

O/T I'm gonna wait till we see a better pic/the mini before I judge this one. Bit like Cassius etc. it could well be a crap paint job/photo. If not then I've got plenty soaking in simple green...

That looks utterly stupid, his arms look way to big and his weapon way too short.

I actually much prefer the new Chaplain (in sneak peeks) to this one.

DigitsDavid
27-06-2005, 17:10
Judging by the angle his lower left leg looks, I'd say he had his knees bent which would explain why his robe is on the ground. I'm not bothered about the size of his crozius (sp) as it's all the bigger for braining his opponents!

A nice figure. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on it.

Brimstone
27-06-2005, 17:30

Well there are three servitors in his mandatory retinue they carry three relics, a piece of the column from the major altar, a banner of the Emperor Victorious and blessed water from the Stoup of Elucidation. Together they act as one object and have no individual effect.

Aenarion
27-06-2005, 17:44
His knees do look a bit bent, but they still look out of proportion with the rest of the figure (The calf’s at least). Not keen on the plasma pistol, but the chain effect is good, is that a skull on his backpack?

I've seen a sketch of one carrying a cross. I remember it because there was some discussion wether it would be seen as blasphemous or not.... :rolleyes:

I'd previously heard that as well, it's probably the column from the Altar.

As for if it could be blasphemous or not meh you're pretty sad if you do find it that but some people will get their knickers in a twist about anything just to make a name for themselves.

That seems most likely. It looks to be a fantastic mini, which I feel, will be used in alot of Golden Demon entries.

Yes. However, GW did have to get the figure approved before they could actually cast it up apparently :rolleyes:

27-06-2005, 20:04
This miniature says something to me:

It says, "I'm into B&D - chain me up, big boy!"

Or (written on his Crozious), "Will inspire for food!"

Or, "Damn kids! It's bad enough that you toilet-papered my house!!"

oatish
27-06-2005, 20:22
I really like that miniature. It has a less static pose than its new counterpart and looks tough enough to be a Chaplain in one of the toughest chapters around. Then again, I've always had a secret desire to play Black Templars so this codex may be all that I need.

Just to confirm they are Cenobyte servitors - failed Neophytes that assist the Chaplains in maintaining the sanctity of the chapels aboard the Crusade fleet.

Chaplains can take up to three and each has an effect on Righteous Zeal although Grimaldus's ones are different as they carry relics.

hivefleetcarrion
28-06-2005, 07:28
how will taking 3 servitors have different effect on Righteous Zeal? something like deamon-hunters/witch-hunters retinues that 1 model does this, if you take 2 then this happens ect?
