I’m surprised they are releasing a terminator - I had kind of assumed they would be quietly dropped along with the firstborn.

<edit: sorry, unintentional delay in posting and now I see plenty of people making the same point in a more interesting fashion above>

We'd already had leaks about the Battleforces by this time last year and the year before that, but I've not heard/seen anything at all this time round? I think each year GW had released photos/WC articles by early November too. WIth all the production issues this year due to corona and the fact they're struggling to keep stuff in stock I guess we might not get them this year? Be a pity if that's the case, as I've got used to delaying buying marine stuff until the Battleforces come out. But then again, I'm not sure I can store anything else in my loft teehee.gif

I’d wait until the end of the month to be sure, but it’s totally possible that the production issues they’ve faced this year could have led them to skip the battleforces.
It would be a bummer of course, they are a brilliant way to get an even bigger grey pile of shame :)

Leaks last year were coming out around the 15th/16th. So I wouldn't be surprised to not see them yet.

Also not guaranteed they will do them, but if they do, we should see an official announcement around the end of the month.

Who wants to bet that any Astartes Battleforces will have Repulsors? msn-wink.gif

On a more practical note, my recollection is that GW have done Battleforces for some years now. Can anyone confirm for sure? I remember last year but not the year before.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

Chaplain: Check.

Terminator Armour: Check

Hitty stick and burny gun: Check.

 

Looks like that's a buy from me!

 

I have the Juan Sculpt already - if you have neither, get that one first, and also the store opening model - I was wondering about converting that one anyway, this will make a nice addition to the TDA chappy collection.

I still have my Primaris, Eldar, Admech, and Death Guard Battleforces from 2018. The Chaos and Dark Eldar from 2019.

With this in mind... I'm really excited to see what new Battleforces they announce this year!!!

Yes, since 2017. In 2016 they did something similar just after Christmas when they released the “armoured patrol” boxes (kinda, don’t remember the exact name) with a single troop+transport at a discount.
There were incredibly good deals at £40 RRP, like the Necrons one (12 Warriors + Ghost Ark).

hadn't even noticed they did that. So weird to have the crux on both sides, excellent idea to do a switch!

Yes a good friend of mine kindly donated one of those Chaplains to my Genesis Chapter project, love it.

The new miniature doesn't exude enough raw menace or zeal that comes to mind when thinking of Chaplains. You're talking about individuals that are chosen for their fire & passion from within a hypnoindoctrinated warrior monk society of killing machines. This guy....falls very short of that especially when compared to even some of the classic Chaplain miniatures.

.....It'll sell like freshly iced Squigs at an Ork buffet though.

What do you think is the reason for that in the sculpt? I get the same feeling but im struggling to put my finger on it. Side by side for comparison

I think the old model looks more focused. Something about the way he is glaring down the barrel of his gun as he prepares to dispatch some heretic.

The new one looks a bit less fussy but the pose looks odd. With his arms out evenly like that, it is almost like he wants to give someone a hug. teehee.gif

That's exactly what it looks like. The only thing this one has over the harder to obtain version is the chest design and les obtrusive dangly paraphenalia.
