40K: Limited Edition “Collectors” Chaplain Sighted

chappie-2016-promo

Take a look at GW’s latest limited edition miniatures out in the wild.  This guy looks PISSED!

GW’s latest limited edition miniature has been spotted out there in the world by two lucky gamers.

Yuxuan Necron Seah says:

Okay back from the grand opening of Warhammer Publika and have I gotten the exclusive terminator chaplain. I will be quite honest, I was expecting some sort of special rules for the chaplain.

There’s the clampack!

chappie-2016-2

My, what a large Crozius you have.

Apparently the collector’s model is all about the hobby – nothing to see here on the rules side of things.

 

eBay seller hqsripetaling2013 has THREE of the minis up for auction right now – but a warning, you may not like the price…

He’s got almost no selling history and the minis are in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia… seems legit… 🙂

~Have at it folks.

    The separate shoulder pads is a nice touch…. might deathwatchify mine…. or indeed sorcify with chaos shoulder pads…

    • Silas7

      Deathwatch chaplains can’t take terminator armor…

  • Old zogwort

    This is so going to be my new inquisitor lord. The only thing that needs to be done is a daemonsword, and shoulderpad weapon swap.

    • Dan Wilson

      I think I’d go for a Bloodletter sword perhaps… although I might try and undivide the hilt a little more from khorne.

  • Guido Hockmann

    Hmmm. Not enough skulls.

    • euansmith

      Skulls are like Dakka; there can never be enough.

  • Ira Clements

    What is the minimum number of pieces of bling Chaplains are required to wear now days?

  • Douglas Lang

    $500? Hahhahahahahahahahaha.

  • SilentPony

    He looks a little busy tbh.
    Wish Deathwatch Chaplains could take Terminator armor, ’cause that’s be my go-to model.

  • CF

    So how is this figure acquired? Only at a GW store or only at specific GW stores?

    • SilentPony

      If its anything like the other limited figures, you get it for free after buying $100 worth of stuff.

      • Carey_Mahoney

        If I understood it right, you do not get it for free then, you only acquire the right to purchase one of them.
        Though I didn’t read the whole text TBH…

        • euansmith

          I’m getting a Mortal Kombat vibe from this, sort of, “You have slain all of you opponents, and now you have earned the right to fight in the army of the Outworld!”

    • ootman

      From what i heard, it is only sold to GW branch shop opening. you need to acquire 10 stamps on the card to purchase the chaplin.

    • taithays

      Everything is said on the first picture. You get the opportunity to buy this model only if you have a complete collector card which you complete by buying stuffs.

      • Carey_Mahoney

        … which is somehow not cool. They should just sell that miniature on a special opportunity in their stores only – like limited edition and stuff, without the obligation to buy even more products in order to be able to BUY (!) that mini at all. This sounds just wrong…

  • mrrshann618

    Sadly it reminds me of a snap-fit model. For a Limited Edition, collectors model they could have done so much better when you compare it to their other kits.

  • frankelee

    That’s at least a 100% markup from GW’s regular prices, what an outrage!!!

  • Alpharius

    I really like this guy. Chaplains have always been some of the nicest models GW makes. Along with that limited edition captain with all the skulls, this would be a good start for a skull-crazy unit.

    Those skulls are Space Marine-sized for the most part, which is interesting.

  • euansmith

    That guy is totally skully-mental; but in a good way. With the added bonus that the skulls hide whatever weird thing is going on with his legs.

  • rtheom

    Ooooof, why did they put peg holes on the legs to hold the tabard on? It would be decently easy to convert his body if it wasn’t for that. Granted, a tiny bit of green stuff will fix that up, but I see zero reason for those pegs at all…

  • Parthis

    Damn eBay Scaplers and their +25% markup… wink wink.

  • Carey_Mahoney

    Nice one!

  • Chet Atkinson

    thank god its plastic

    • Iconoc1ast

      The Gods have received your thanks. More skulls are thus demanded

  • orionburn

    They should have put him in the new Ultima Strike Force box. That really would have been an incentive to buy that set.

  • The way it works is at a store opening you can buy the limited edition terminator captain with grenade launcher glove on the first opening weekend and get a collector card for the chaplain. Every purchase earns you a tick on the skulls (each skull is worth a certain amount, so a big purchase can tick off a lot of them) toward being able to buy the chaplain at the official grand opening generally a month later.

    The detail on the terminator captain is pretty nice, hopefully this will be just as nice.

    I am happy to wait another week to be able to purchase my one in store. Certainly not for that price though!

    If you don’t have a card from the first few weeks the store is open, then you miss out, as the store gets a limited amount of chaplain cards, and only get sent that amount of miniatures, of which any that are left unsold, get sent back to head office after the grand opening.

  • David Leimbach

    We heard you like skulls…so we put skulls on your skull while you skull.

  • Phile Brosso

    I made a 20$ offer (hey you never know), but he came back with a 470$ counter-offer. Which I politely declined..

  • Will

    If anyone is looking for one (the ones listed above have already sold), I’ve got one selling at a lower price right now on ebay:
