Was debating wether i wanted to grab this guy for bits for kitbashing... not so sure now, his head is indeed like SM heroes series 2, so there's no back of the head, so they work on pretty much only terminators.

I wonder how many parts he comes in... because those shoulder plates need to go and some filing on the knees

right shoulder plate is separate from the arm while left shoulder one is included with the arm

The model is clearly and EtB so the limitations of the mould are all because of this
He is meant to go together with the SM heroes series2 for this reason it has the scenic base included in the sprue


This isn't because of etb mould, but the angle he is holding the crozius. Like in a video game when there is no collision detection.

I still like him, but if I would create a model I would keep an eye of such stuff.

Might slice the hand off and repair it with some greenstuff, but I might just leave it as-is. Will need to determine whether I can just file down the crux terminatus and have enough space for decals, or whether I need to replace them. I'll do some measurements when I get it though.

Local GW posted an quila adorned case? Tin?
And some sort of bag that are limited time WH day exclusives.

Not sure if they have been revealed yet/talked about.
Anyone know anything about these?

I have the rucksack and it’s great. I bought it on eBay for £20. It comes with 2 Velcro patches to attach to the back that are a 40K insignia or an AOS insignia. Loads of room in it and it’ll take the smallest plastic game case that GW sell.

Oh, good. I might end up getting him after all, that's pretty convenient for making him into a Grey Knight since I'd want to replace the left arm anyway.

"Chaplain Tarentus will be available in stores and online from Warhammer Day itself until the 8th of November"

 

I just went to the GW store page, and I can't order him, as he's not available to order anymore. What the hell? The description on the shop page even says "Available to order until 2am (UK time) on Monday 9th November 2020."

Indeed, the chaplain was CAD designed and whoever did it likely didnt notice the collision between wrist and crozius. Likely this flaw, as well as the Librarians ankles, as to why they didnt make the Heroes set.

Is it a region thing? I just checked and he's still available to order on the UK store.

On a separate note, I was expecting this to take potentially months to deliver like Amulius, the TDA Librarian and Battle Sister, but I got confirmation today from GW that my Tarentus has been shipped already!

I can order just fine as well. GW seems to have produced enough of these, I was in a random model store in Chester at the weekend and they still had a half dozen or so on Sunday - grabbed mine there.

Glad i hadn't got around to ordering it yet, hadn't noticed the wrist and it would bother the hell out of me. Really not sure how to feel about it tough since he looks like a fairly decent model otherwise and Chaplains and Termies are to me two of the most 40k things around.

 

Also did they get rid of the Finecast terminator chaplain? can't see it in the UK anymore and any link to it just sends me to a "Error 404 - All Records Expunged from Library" page

Meh the wrist doesn't bother me--it's barely noticable.  Especially when you compare it to the "beloved" old metal models that took, ahem, liberties with where things began and ended.

 

Anyway, I don't yet have a terminator chaplain, and this one looks like its sculpt is such that I can fix the anatomy (extend the midrif) pretty easily so it doesn't have dumb/terrible terminator proportions which bother me much more than the clipping of the crozius.

Thanks. When I checked this morning, neither Germany nor UK worked for me, but now it's available again.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was a gap from when they sold out of what they have in stock to switching to MTO on the listing.
