The Eldar Falcon. It's been around awhile now, but the sleek shape and great details still haven't been topped.

The humble Space Marine. For without Mk. VII power armour, we are nothing.

But seriously, I think some of the newer metal Space Marine sculpts are downright amazing... the Chapter Masters, the new Veterans (and admittedly, the "old" veterans as well), the librarians, and chaplains. They're all pretty impressive. I'm a big fan of the new harlequins as well. Blah. I don't really have a favorite, I suppose.

For fantasy... the high elves in general are probably the sharpest looking, although I like the Warriors of Chaos sprues quite a bit too.

Tough call indeed. Vehicle - Baneblade hands down. Model - Be'lakor or perhaps Shadowsun. Or maybe the new Term lord.....

Like I said, tough call.

I'm a big fan of the Powerfist Chaplain.

Not only does the model just look badass, with its sculpted ribcage armor and fearsome pose, but he's living, 3d proof against anyone who tries to argue that the 'two weapons' rule applies to anything beyond the amount of selections you're allowed to make from the armoury (arguing that you have to give up your crozius if you pick two weapons, or that your crozius counts against your limit) since he's armed with his crozius, a powerfist and a pistol ;-)

In the case of the Angel codecies, that'd be true. However, the two weapons rule does stand in the codecies with armouries-- a model can have two weapons, which can be either two one-hand weapons, or a two-hand weapon and a one-hand weapon. Just because it's modelled on the model doesn't mean it has to actually have it-- it just means that you can use it and have it be WYSIWYG if you choose to take something shown on the model.

If you need further proof on that front, check out GW's army builder. You can't give a Chaplain a bolt pistol, power fist, and retain the crozius. They haven't released a patch with the Dark Angels or anything more recent, so like I said, it only is applicable to stuff that draws from an armoury, not the Angel codecies.

The SM Codex only says you may only choose two weapons *from the armoury* Nowhere does it ever, at any time, in any rules book, ever say that a model cannot *have* more than two weapons. Even codex marines.

You may only buy two weapons for your chaplain, but he keeps the one he came with in addition.

Likewise, you could buy a storm bolter and powerfist for your veteran sarge and still keep his pistol and chainsword, allowing him to fire the stormbolter, assault and revieve an extra attack from the chainsword (or even switch to his poston and chainsword for the assault, allowing him to strike at I4 if he decides not to use the powerfist)

This has been discussed before in the rules forum. The rules as written do not limit characters to having only two weapons. The only limitation is that they may only *buy* two weapons *from the armoury*
