Default A model for the Emperor

Hello my heretics.

So I just won a free display board for my Sisters from a tournament. This will be made by http://thecindersofwar.blogspot.com/

And since it is Sisters based I figured it has to be a shrine world. Lots of pristine white marble, fluted columns, and many thin levels as stairs. And at the top center of the board is a golden statue of the Emperor himself. Now I'm just having trouble picking out what I want to use as the statue. So I come to my friends here hoping for suggestions for the man himself.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Well, Scibor has an "Emperor of Rome" model which is pretty close...
Emperor of Rome

My vote is for this. Pretty damn close I would say.

"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has though and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey."

My mind's eye has Him seated in a throne. But a very nice model you found there...

OHHHH!! That's great. Exactly what I was looking for. Now I'm deciding if I want him don't in marble paint, or all golden. I think considering the subject the gold would be the way to go.

Hell... it's the EMPEROR. Gold and marble, FTW.

With one of the Blood Angel/Celestine Halos put on, in addition. His mind must shine like the beacon of hope he is!

The emp is going to be a statue, so theres not going to be a stat line really.

If someone were to make a stat line for emperor models, it would probably have to be somone over at GW, so that way he wont be overpowered to the point of making everyone rage quit when he's used. As long as its not Matt Ward. He'd probably make all the stats 10 or something.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.
