Can't say I'm really impressed by the model, but I guess it couldn't be long before the stormcast got their own greater demon/nagash/... equivalent.
Agreed, it doesn't particularly wow me.  Can see a lot of Blood Angels players buying it to use as Sanguinius for Horus Hetesy games though.
For me it`s the same as with the other Stormcasts. It has some really well designed details and I like the spiral and the wings but it is a little unpersonal to me. Maybe that is the lacking face.
Well crafted but soulless.

Tongue Wink

He just get out of a barocco catholic chapel.

Love it

Except the paintjob of the vortex, so 80's (which is not all the time a bad thing)
I love the wings, cloak, and swirly bits. The man himself I don't like.
Not a fan.  Out of curiosity, what's the fluff on the wing things?  Is that supposed to represent light beams or something more solid?

Are these all avatars of Sigmar himself?  If so, wouldn't the writing need to be in reikspiel instead of magic symbolic writing?
not feeling this. AoS isnt being well liked in my area, this sort of thing adds to that. Great for painters but a bit much for a wargame set in the warhammer universe

I'm not sure"angels" are really difficult to blend in an universe
Where daemons , Orcs, lizardmens and  other strange things
Are living for someone with a bit of imagination

But that is just my opinion absolutely not a provocation.

Angels are as realistic as demons imo. So why should they bother me? Wink

I think that the main "problem" ist hat many Warhammer gamers don't like AoS as a matter of principle!

Btw. I personally don't like the Sigmarines models (including the Celestant Prime model) but the demons as well!

As a game I will give AoS a try if I haved finished my CD warband. Tongue

I actually like this model. He's pretty cool. He looks to me like Sigmar would be pictured in the old Empire. The barbarian turned god. After the Empire got fullplate armour, that would make it's way onto pictures of Sigmar as well.

I don't like the facelessness of these sigmarines however. I know they are fluff wise put together from souls of all good races. But I would still put spacewolf, white wolf knight og marauder heads on all of them. Perhaps even regular Empire Knight helmets vould work.
That's actually an interesting way of looking at this Bloodbeard.  If he were a stand alone model without a helmet and represented Sigmar himself in 8th ed warhammer fighting alongside Empire then yes, I'd like the context and the model.

Agreed. Pretty wierd huh?

I like the model but the helmet is just a bit too standard for me. The Lord-Celestant from the starter set stands out and has unique character. This guy just looks like a Prosecutor/liberator who's been on Pimp My Ride.
