There have been some pics floating on the forums of the new librarians GW are releasing, only 3 so far, but my question is whether there will be a terminator armoured 1. There was a Terminator version of the new Chaplins so...
I am currently planning a grey knight conversion for a relictors librarian, but want to see what else i could do.
Thanks

P.S. sorry if this is the wrong place, don't know where to put questions.

Could just use the old Terminator Librarian. I always loved that one, and you don't see it anywhere these days:

Any pictures anybody? Thanks in advance.
Don't like the static pose of the current termie libby, could be worked with though.

I made my own librarian in termie armor. I took the terminator captain out of the box set, and put him together in a dynamic pose. I Give him a sword and a storm bolter, as well as the banner and a regular terminator head. I used some green stuff to make a psychic hood.

When I painted it, I painted the hood red with white "runic" looking swirls. Then, I painted the sword so that it appeared to have glowing, runic looking, yellow bolts shooting across the surface. Other than that, it is a normal librarian.

On another blister for one I bought, I simply put a jump pack on it.

Hope this helps!

scroll down a bit and see the new librarians and plastic devastators.
Does anyone have any pics of the terminator lib? Even info on the pose would be great.

Meh, not hugely impressed by the new Librarians. :( The one with the staff and book looks OK but the other two are a bit static. I think the new Chaplains they did to go with the BTs were better overall.

And I disliked the Chaplains, this is just... too blue for my taste.
Not to mention a severe lack of interresting poses with the librarians.

There will be a Termie Librarian.

I can't give away anything more.

Being a player who uses librarians a lot, I really like those new ones. I especially like the one with the sword, and also the one with the book. Though the one with the sword looks a lot like one that is already out.

Personally T would put a jump pack on the axe weilding one the one with the book is perfect for my latest conversion plan YAY

A new terminator Librarian would be good as the current one is too small and no comparison when you look at the new Terminator Chaplin

Thanks, that sounds just like what a want for my Terminator Librarian, who will be CC oriented, "Might of Heroes" psyker power and the "Shard of Monolith" special Relictors item. No ranged weaponry.

Any idea id there will be a jump pack one, just like they did the chappy? Because with the new PAs are ither ugly or might have difficulty accomodating one...

yup those placcy ones are from "Genestealer" they were also re-released in a box set called "terminators & tyranids" I think I still have a couple.

i use the old classic metal one shown earlier in the thread.

I think one of the resons why there is not librarian w/a jump pack is because GW just wants people to have to spend money on the jump pack bits to convert their own. That's all I did, but I had one leftover, and it looks really nice. I think that it really isnt necessary, but it would be nice.

I know this might sound a little obvious...but has anyone thought of using the Grey Knight Terminators as Libbys?
I use the Brother Captain from teh Boxed set as my Chief Librarian and it looks dead cool...

It can be done but GKs have quite a bit of distinctive ][ iconography on them. I feel it would take a lot of work to get them looking like codex Marines rather than just GKs in another colour.

Having said that I would like to see your one before I discard the idea.

For those wondering, yes, those are librarians from the Space Hulk expansion, Genestealer. Which included some cool GS hybrid modles packing chaos heavy weps, like the missile launcher, auto cannon, bolters and plasma guns if I wished, and a Conversion Beamer, which would translate to an umlimited range Multi-melta.

Now, wouldn't that be something? A MM with decent range....
:evilgrin:

I'll post a pic of one...gotta dig it out.

I said in my opening post that I was planning to use a GK if I do not like this new Terminator model. Cut off his head and mould a hood arond a bare SM one. Also to take the GK iconography off of the shoulder pads.
