Centurion Proportions Addressed, New Sternguard, & Black Templars


Theoretical scale from a post on 4Chan

Well the Internet has been buzzing with information about the new Space Marine Centurions. Everyone is weighing in with their opinions of the new model and even the folks who like it are scratching their heads a bit at its design. The proportions of it are a tad odd to say the least, and one has to wonder how big a marine's shoulders must be to reach into the arms. However, we now have a more official answer, and from the designer himself!
Courtesy of a source who has laid eyes on the White Dwarf:

"Andrew: One last question: where are the pilot's arms?
Dave: I knew someone would ask me that, but I have actually thought it all through! They're crossed over his chest in the front, behind that big torso-plate and the secondary weapons. And the pilot actually steps into the suit from behind. The top section hinges up - you can see the harness that straps him in - and the back of the suit opens up to allow access. At least, that's how it works in my head."


What's more, we also have a shot of the armor from the back, courtesy of Bell of Lost Souls.




As we can see from this angle, the occupant's foot ends quite a was up from the actual foot. Combine this with our new knowledge above about the hands and the scale of this model is pretty accurate. Though it would seem that if they wanted us to look into it and see, they'd have to make it quite close. I've been one of the odd ball fans of this model from the start, but this new information has sealed the deal for certain. I've gotta have some of these in my army.

But that's only the half of what we've got to show you! Bell of Lost Souls also had some fantastic new photos of the new Sternguard models as well. I have to say, I'm really quite fond of the targeters on the helmets, and fans of MKIV armor will rejoice again at the opportunity to get more in plastic, yet again, with this kit.










Wow! Some more fantastic, plastic Sternguard. I can't wait to get my hands on several of these. I'd while I'm not a huge fan of the Roman regalia that GW loves to throw all over marines, I have to admit the Sgt. head crests are growing on me.

And last, but certainly not least, a Black Templars reveal of sorts. We've had all kinds of posts saying they'd be in the new codex, but now visual evidence. This one comes to us, again, from Bell of Lost Souls. Black Templars Centurions. Also note the armored rhino front in the background. Could be a Razorback, but could also be one of the new AA tanks. Seems like BT will have access to some of the new rides as well.




Well, that's all the fresh content we have right now. Keep checking back for more as we get it and be sure to visit Bell of Lost Souls for news of these new models as well.

The tank in the background is the new hunter. You are able to see the piston just to the right of the track.

These Centurions look absolutely horrible. Utterly revolting.

I like the centurions, that picture is pretty explanatory the proportions the centurions got.

I think they are awesome. Now my Astral Claws have oblits that don't look way off from the rest of my theme.

I could deal with them better if the legs were not such a terrible design. 4 huge toes? Really. These things would never be able to walk. Maybe if you cut the toes on the sides off. Maybe.

Also the seemingly arbitrary nature of naming units after Roman Army positions. They at least could have named them appropriately. These should have been called Onegars ( A Roman Heavy Weapon) not Centurions which is the ROman equivalent of a sergeant. It would be great if GW could hire someone with an actual history degree or some level of education. Onegar would have been such a great and appropriate name.

Give it some time, Forge World will have a go at the model and turn it into a masterpiece, same as they do with most of the GW stuff ups.
