Well first off i dont have my codex at the moment, but of course first off your emperor's champion (EC) has the iron halo and gives it a invunerable save rite? i dunno can't remember, had it once, dont use it anymore.. anyway yea so that takes away the combat shield and storm shield.. though with the plastic terminator storm shield on the EC would look so cool. Depends on what you want the EC to be? Decorative? get a Thunder Hammer and try to make it like its kinda slung or held in his arm like a soldier , Used on The Table? Use the Lightning Claws or Power Fist, I've seen a EC with both of them, looked sweet, the guy told me it was good on the table as well. Personally for me, i'm a complete idiot and like the standard idea of like a normal say knight and would use the Combat Shield bolt pistol. A Mace wouldn't be so bad, would look cool, but the whole idea of two weapons to me is kinda strange... i made a space marine with 2 bolt pistols, i dunno why but it looked cool anyway.. yea off topic anyway go with what i suggest, if not thats cool Happy New Years to people anyway (please don't paraphrase me)
I say the master craft bolt pistol since in fluff the Emperor Champion had that and the Black Sword.

Personally I would choose an additional sword...
No particular reason, just that it fits better with martial superiority that I would expect an Emperors Champion to have.
He is THE chamion of the Emperor so I would expect him to carry the purest weapon avaliable, the sword...
The reason I say it is the purest weapon is from anchient history and from most fantasy stories...
What weapon did the crusaders primarily use? The sword
What weapon did Aragorn in LOTR use? The sword
What weapon did that due in "gangs of new york" use? The sword
What weapon did Musashi Miamoto use? The (samurai)sword
That is just my view of it.
I would at least never choose an axe, even from anchient times it has been considered a barbaric weapon.......and I don't see the Emperors Champion as a barbarian...

according to the codex you can't give him anything other than:
a bolt pistol, frag grenades and term honours, crusader seals, the armour of faith and the black sword.
and for the sword these are some possibles
WARMASTER of the SCHOLA PROGENIUM Alnwick Chapter (soon to be the world)
Id deffently go with the second sword because i always pictured the emperors champion being really adgile so a thunder hammer or power fist wouldnt work for me. As for the slain model ive started work on my chapter master with a necron lord at his feet(unfortunatly i dont know anyone who plays necrons)
Then you better buy a box of warriors, and have them all piled up dead on the chapter masters base. now THAT is impressive.
I'll go out on a wild goose chase here if you don't mind.
Easiest and best one to do is probably a Chaos Marine seeing as you have should many SM models to convert to a CSM.Originally Posted by Knight721
Buy a CSM backpack for him next time you mail order something. Break the legs and greenstuff to get a suitably dramatic pose. Ask a Chaos player for some bitz to attach to him to make him suitably chaos. Then greenstuff a wound on him where he has been slain.
Then decide what CSM colours you want to paint him up in (I'd try to avoid one of the four 'cult' armies as their models have a lot of extra details), something undivided like Night Lords or Black Legion would probably be best.
For the slain model...go with a necron or a CSM marine.
The Necron would probably be easy since its a robot figurativly so you can just hack him apart.
And CSM for lore purposes.
For the sword...switch the sword with the sword from the terminator captain.
