Being as there are tons and tons of people putting out models of primarchs, I have decieded to try my hand at "overkill." Ihave decided to do Sigismund, the first emperors champion and first high marshal/chapter master of the BT. Anybody have any pictures? I could also use any fluff u guys have.

Thanx

Well, first off, he was easily one of the best warriors of the original legions, to the point that he was almost Primarch-like. Secondly, he was specifically geared out to fight the most powerful chosen warriors of Chaos, and as such was loaded out with the best anti-Chaos gear the Imperium could find at that stage. He wore artificer armour, not terminator armour, and used the original Black Sword, a massive two-handed blade which he was strong enough to use one-handed. He was the embodiment of the horouable warrior ethos and the knightly codes, but raged against the fallen Marines with incredible fury.

Basically, you're looking for something halfway between a High Marshal and Rogal Dorn.

Yes. Sigsimund was something else. I would start with a standard EC model and then holy it up.

Like this.

Holy noises!!!!! LOL.


That actually works very well, yet I think that a bit more would be needed for what GSC is talking about.

Hey! i remember seeing almost the exact same EC but in white dwarf and part of a Red templar army! Weird...

anyway, on that EC, it looked really awesome and so would probably be good for your sigismund conversion- it's the same as the pic that dirge did but with EC head on Helbrechts body- looks freaking sweet and so should serve well enough for the first emperors champion. I'm afraid i dont have pics so you'll have to use your imaginations.

Also, on fluff side, remember that since he is the first EC, he would probably still have very close ties to Imperial Fists, and so it'd make sense to put a little Imperial fist badge somwhere on him or even just paint one of his arms/hands yellow. Anyway, just my 2 cents.

PS. that EC in the pic is a normal Champ with Saint celestine's cloak and iron Halo... not sure how they did the pointing finger though- probably a devastator sergeant i think...

EDIT: This page ight help as well...

Fluff wise he also commanded the entire defense of the Imperial Palance during the Siege of Terra once Dorn boarded Horus' ship.

So not only was he an incredible warrior, he was also a master tactician to
have been trusted by the loyal primarchs to lead the defense in their stead.

Pretty sure on that. I can't remember exactly where I read it though to be honest.

Edit: Oh, on top of that, I believe he also killed Kharn during the battle, before he became Kharn the Betrayer.
