I would let you use it as a power fist only if the model wielding it was not holding the sword but had it mounted straight on its form arm like a power fist is, or maybe if the rest of the power fists in your army are just guys holding a space marine gauntlet and they go around slapping enemies with energized gloves.

The model I have is the original Emperor's Champion model, the one where he holds it in two hands out in front of him. Like this one:

Model is meant to be Sigismund though and I thought it would be the perfect model.

So?, its worthless, I had 4 myself, one I kept, one i converted to a dark angel (and lost long ago) and two I gave away after trying to sell them.

Don't matter if its rare, your stuck with it as it has no value, so I would A: convert it to wysiwyg, B: use it for something more appropriate or C: use it as an emperors champion.

If there is a special rule for the Black Sword that lets you do this then that is fine. There is no need for WYSIWYG on the mini nor do the Unusual Power Weapons rules counteract that special ability.

Firstly, Don't be such a Dick, MBT. Secondly, a quick Ebay scan says you're wrong.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

I don't have my Black Templars book handy at the moment (I often post from work when things are slow or I'm at lunch), but I don't think the Black Sword can do that anymore currently.

Honestly, if the OP is doing Counts-As and clears it with his opponent, then there isn't an issue, otherwise he'll want to look at converting a model to be WYSIWYG that has the right wargear to make sure there aren't any problems.
