    I suppose anything can represent a relic blade - even a power axe - I have personally used the power sword from the command squad sprue (the one wielded by the company champ) as it is slightly larger, and has a longer handle and a chunkier hilt. Alternatively, the Black Reach Captain has a bigger power sword than normal too....

    Yep, any power weapon-esque weapon really can represent a relic blade as long as your opponent knows it's a relic blade. I too had noticed that the Company Champion's powersword makes a good relic blade because it's fairly long and it has a long handle so you can easily imagine it being wielded two handed.

    I think ideally you want something that is bigger, fancier, or more dangerous looking than the standard power weapon. Nemesis force weapons (halberd looking thing) make great relic blades. I think you can even order a bits pack of them from GW. I ended up using one for a jump pack captain.

    Otherwise, my recommendation would be to look at the online store until you find a model with a weapon that fits what you want, buy the model or just the bit if you can, then convert it. You might have to add a small chunk of wire or something for the "I'm plugged in to the power outlet" look, but it should be a minor conversion effort. Don't forget the fantasy section either... some of those models have neat looking weapons you can convert with just a bit of effort. The empire section in particular if you like warhammers.

    I use the Emperors Champion model to represent my Relic Blade. You could also use Nemesis Force Weapons to represent it as well.

    But like everyone else said, just about any power weapon can represent one.
