I find myself staring at my old Emperor's Champion and wondering what was i thinking, don't get me wrong its not bad i just feel like a re-do is in order. So im 90% decided on what the new Champion will look like but im trying to decide between a Storm shield or a Bolt Pistol along with the the original Champions sword.
So what would be better in the long run for an Emperor's Champion?.
Thanks for the help guys.
well considering that the Emperors champion is not allowed any additional wargear I would say the storm shield couldn't be legally used as it would be portrayed..
Definately a no-no in tourney play, but if your opponent in a fun game allows it, then go for it..
Otherwise, go with the bolt pistol, and change the pose.
I am painting my GW BT Emperors Champ, and then I will customize my own..
I was thinking of using a charging pose with the bolt pistol blasting forward, and the black sword trailing behind ready for a cleaving strike.
God, the more I think about it, the more I wish I had the money right now to order the bits.
Seriously, the Storm Shield would look awesome, the rules just don't allow for it... Of course if you are playing a different chapter, nothing says they can't have an Emperors champ?
Yeah i was thinking about Magnetized as well so i could switch if my opponent wanted to have a fun game.
Ive Decided to use the bolt pistol.
He has assault marine legs as to give the impression of him running forward, he also will have the bolt pistol raised up pointed at the sky and his sword pointed forward. looks really good. will upload a few pics in the next few days.
If you are using a plastic model for the Champ, definitely magnetize.
yeah i got most of the plastic parts off eBay yesterday so think i will.
