Well, I havent really posted any new plog updates or pictures here in quite a long while now. I think my old crusade thread is languishing somewhere past 20 pages back? I, for the longest time, couldn't really square Primaris so I went on a Templar hiatus (though I did distract myself with something else for a while...) Even now I have my misgivings with Primaris, lore and what not, put perhaps mainly I absolutely cannot jive with the idea of mixing them with classic marines, even just a little bit.
But I do actually really like most of the new models, as I've stated elsewhere multiple times, this is what I feel marines should always have looked like. I also feel they have great potential and I'm fairly eagerly awaiting wave 2. But I am getting ahead of myself; I figured that rather than update the old thread, I would create a new one so my Primaris Templar can have their own thread and get a fresh start. I'll eventually develop them into their own crusade proper, though I'm going to keep their numbers more in check this time, which is probably for the better. The thread is a bit anachronistic in that I'll periodically update this first post with the newest additions and adjustments.
So without further ado, my Primaris Templar Plog:
Crusade Command - Marshals:
My favourite is the one on the left, the others' cloaks feels a bit tame in comparison to it. Was a bit apprenhesive about cutting away the Gravis Marshal's hood, but it worked for the best I think. Head's a bit rare so it makes him feel a little unique.
Crusade Command - Apothecary, Emperor's Champion, Chapter Ancient:
Very Fun models to paint. The Champion is a conversion I comissioned Eberious to do for me.
Crusade Command - Castellans
Castellans. Castellans everywhere. Seriously, I got too much command.
Swordbrethren (Veteran Sergeants):
30th Anniversary Veteran Sergeant, Store Birthday Veteran Sergeant Jovan and the ETB sergeant with some selected added bits. Very fun models to paint.
Intercessors with bolt rifles:
Most of these are from Dark Imperium, some good firing poses there that you can't replicate with the Intercessor kit. In total I have 3 squads of intercessors each with one type of bolt rifle.
Intercessors with auto bolt rifles:
Think the remainder of the DI intercessors are here, with new arms from the regular kit. Chainsword from the Blood Angels Primaris upgrade sprue.
Intercessors with stalker bolt rifles:
All regular Intercessor kit models.
Aggressors with flamestorm gauntlets:
Aggressors with stormbolt gauntlets:
Inceptors with Assault bolters:
Inceptors with Plasma Exterminators:
Hellblasters with Plasma Incinerators:
Like with the intercessors I have one squad with each Incinerator type, but only half squads, as I felt more was too much.
Hellblasters with Heavy Plasma Incinerators:
Hellblasters with Assault Plasma Incinerators:
Repulsor with Las-Ripper:
Repulsor with Heavy Onslaught Gatling Cannon:
Repulsor Executioner with Heavy Laser Destroyer:
And that's it for now.
Barring any new releases, this is about as large as I'm willing to let the crusade grow.
Thanks for looking and the Emperor protects!
