New models hinted at in the bottom right of the Video. Sort of. New Tank, Dreadnought and Snipers

They are deliberately blurred out.

Also..

Did you know there could be as many as 10,000 Primaris Lieutenants in the galaxy?

A looooong way to go before all those models are out - Jes Goodwin better get cracking!

I think these might be new First Company Primaris - perhaps it's just me, but that looks like a white company roundel on the tank to me, and white shoulder pads on the lieutenant.

This looks 100% like Reiver Lt, has the mask, single pad, and knife.

I bet on him having zero access to any actual melee weapons and some random, garbage, uninspired special rule with so little impact no one will remember it

Haha they’re not even actually there, they’re a photo of the models blurred and overlaid the video.

The scout dreadnought variant looks like it might be cool, if only because it seems closer to a normal dreadnought in design and proportion.

I think it looks like a smaller vehicle overall, probably the primaris equivalent of a rhino to the Repulsor's Land Raider.

Scouty dreadnought seems...I dunno, like the design space for dreadnoughts has been cartoonishly oversaturated for multiple editions now. We've literally got dozens of different dreadnought models. Boy oh boy I wonder what variation on standard marine-class weaponry and draednought statlines this one could have!?!?!?!

Then it looks like full kit boxes for Bolter Wielding Power Armor Squad #128283821812y9694619827361089261 and Primaris Scout Sniper Replacement Guys.

Dunno if it has bigger capacity, but it certainly looks like Razorback-like turret, so maybe.

I like addition to Redemptor arsenal, is that a multimelta?

The three guys on the right are probably lascannon snipers, high time they finally arrived in regular box...

They're chunky sponsons, I'd going out on a limb and saying something akin to hurricane bolters.

GW is really messing with us.

I also think that it is not dreadnought but rather a battlesuit. Kinda sure that it has open cockpit atleast.

Not gonna lie, a cheap(ish) transport that can fit a full Hellblaster squad & lieutenant would get me to buy more Primaris.

This looks to me to be the complete Vanguard line. So new infils on left, a new character, new las snipers, a lighter transport and a lighter dread/suit (who hopefully can deepstrike).

Doesn't look like a rhino, at all.
The same cutting edges and flanks and nose as a Land Raider or repulsor.

Not really?

The Lieutenant from Shadowspear had the "knife fighter" rule and it raised a lot of eyebrows at the time as the Lt had more pointing towards him being a "sniper" styled infiltrator with the Occulus Bolt-Carbine granting him the ability to ignore Cover Saves.

Was going to say this. Thing looks like a Repulsor with a new front plate in place of the hull mounted weapon. Furthermore, I'm not convinced that's actually a turret. Looks more like a communication dish to me.

"Slightly" different in that he had a different knife, different rifle (and can't take pistols unlike Reivers), no access to their grenades, hooks, or skull mask.

So, had literally nothing in common with Reivers save for similar ability to deep strike. How is that "Reiver" lieutenant, again?

He has phobos armour, grav-chutes and sucks in close combat. Just like the Reivers.

So it looks like a Primaris Rhino/Razerback equivalent and a Primaris Dread Knight to my eye. Looking forward to better pictures of the cool new toys to paint up, but not to a SM codex that's nearly as big as the main 40k rule book

If they could just get around to releasing the Imperial/Crimson Fists upgrade sprue* that was including in the xmas Imperial Fists Battleforce box that would be great.

*ideally with the fist logo the right way around this time

The dread is interesting in that it kind of looks to me like there's a whole space marine sat in it, rather than just a bit of one in a sarcophagos.

The other stuff I really don't know. That appears to be another repulsor variant but maybe it's something else entirely. Maybe it's a transport for infiltrators, since the rest of this release looks like it's vanguard-type people. It's definitely a skimmer-type thing with a lot in common with the repulsor, but it seems slightly smaller. Not sure if it's a new sprue like the executioner or a whole new tank.

This does mean I'm probably not going out to buy three Repulsor Executioners this weekend. Probably for the best all round.

What bothered me about the advert for these ridic new primaris weenies, is the text presuming these to be everyone's favs. Who is this "everyone"?

it seems to me that the intention is to either turn everyone into a home printing rules writer, or to turn everyone who ever did favour space marines to turn to chaos as the new cawliferous mechification of glory turns everyone's favorite, space marines, into drooling man children named Bifficus Rey (after the much beloved SW character).

Thoughts?

They're aimed at people who like Space Marines but want their models to actually look good.

And in fairness, the whining about Lieutenants was ridiculous to begin with.

There were two in Dark Imperium(the core starter set). Each one was set up differently.
Fast forward to the Dark Angels and Blood Angels releases, where each one got a single Lieutenant model as part of their releases--which otherwise was fairly unimpressive, just an upgrade frame for Primaris reboxed with vanilla stuff.
Then came Tooth and Claw with the Battle Leader, releasing as part of the whole thing for the Space Wolves.
And then Wake the Dead, which brought out the first 'vanilla' Marine Lieutenant that was available outside of Dark Imperium--and was clearly intended to be an Ultramarine.
Lastly we've had Shadowspear's Phobos Lieutenant, which was a fairly radical divergence as was(IMO) the Space Wolf variant.

We've had two promo ones, I think, but one isn't available outside of UK/Europe and the other is an event exclusive so don't really count.

Blood Angels, Dark Angels, and Space Wolves are considered different armies to Vanilla Space Marines.
Ultramarines aren't Raven Guard, Iron Hands, White Scars, or Imperial Fists either.

So there are 3 different models(the two Dark Imperium and the Phobos LT from Shadowspear), shared across 4 armies(Dark Angels, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, and Vanilla Marines).
And then there's 4 different models across 4 armies that share the same title but are made up specifically in that faction's aesthetics.
And then there's a few promo models that:
A) Not everyone has access to
B) No interest in because, spoiler, they're done up in the Ultramarines style again.

Maybe you should look in the mirror then look at say Death Guard (more character models than Space Marines got in five armies in three years, in a single release, and it's about to be doubled with japanese boxes), Cults (ditto, including doubles of characters they already had), Chaos (including some random mooks no one uses, not vital HQs SM really need), Nurgle (as big offender as DG), or recent pile of other Chaos Daemons, or even more recent Gobbos, then you will realize how ridiculous SM whine sounds when literally every single army released in last 3 years got more, and often quite extraneous models. All while SM still have massive gaps in their line (no ancients or gravis HQs outside of old starter box for one), and that's just models that already have rules. The problem goes much deeper than that (still no melee HQs for primaris of any sort, or deep strikers, or access to any guns besides basic bolters, etc etc), frankly, if anyone got dumb, superfluous models that wasted release time recently it was not SM, sorry

Ultimately this is a good-natured mini-preview of some upcoming Primaris releases framed with some self-deprecating humour about the amount of Primaris Lt's they've put out and how that became a meme.

This video barely helped me at all. I have been working on a Primaris only army for a while now, and I only have one Primaris Lieutenant (the Shadowspear one). I need to up my PrimeLT game as the kids are callin' it. I count on the Primaris Lieutenant Daily (been watching since episode 314) so someday I wouldn't be a 1 PrimeLT scrub.

Finally, Wade Pryce gets a guy on that says he makes Primaris Lieutenants, and all that guy wants to do is talk about dreadnoughts and snipers like not fielding an entire army of PrimeLTs isn't the way to win all of 40k and life. It gets worse as the guy barely talks any PrimeLT before storming out of there.

You know what? I bet that guy doesn't even make Primaris Lieutenants. Probably said he does so he could talk about his dumb tanks, dreadnoughts and snipers on the Daily. Whatever. I know I am eagerly awaiting episode #724!

I am thinking Eliminators(with the added option if Las Fusils) and Infiltrators(probably with alternate versions of the Bolt Carbine) will be regular parts-built kits. The Transport looks like it just has the weapon on the top like a Razorback. Those side projections are likely the booster engines like what are in the back with the Repulsor. I don't really see this as being a gunboat. It offers something the Repulsor does not. If it was a straight up weapon system, it would be somewhat invalidating the Repulsor. I bet it will only be able to carry Phobos and no Gravis or Fly units.

I REALLY hope that Dreadnought can infiltrate and has the No Deep Strike rule like the Phobos Captain and the Infiltrators do. It would even cooler if those huge antennas made it an even bigger radius.

Depending on what the Las Fusils can do, I will probably be getting two 3-man squads of the Eliminators. They will likely replace my Lascannon Devastators (sad day, they have been in my army since the very beginning). I am probably going to get two or three Hover Rhinos. If that Dread prevents deep strike, he will probably have a place in my army.

There is one other model in the one image that looks like it could be a character. He has a cloak or coat and maybe a tabard. Though it might just be a regular release of the Phobos Captain. The shape lines up.

even if the dread doesn't deep strike if it has a large radius of deep strike prevention it'll be handy as heck. put it in your back gunline and just be immune to deep strike!

Yeah, that is true. Even then, it might be quicker than the standard Dread (like Contemptor speed at 9"), you could still rush it up the board turn 1 and block deep strikers from getting into the middle of the board. Regardless, if it has that deep strike blocking ability, with the base size of a Dreadnought, there isn't a dang thing getting in my backfield.

I wonder how much they will cost, as it is along with what role the units will be.

Will they have mortars? Will they be more useless HQ choices? Any Close combat squads or are we getting more shooty units that don't fit the aesthetic of 40k?

Will we finally see how a primaris chapter organizes itself?

What will the new transport have that distinguishes itself from the repulsor?

Will the new primaris come in and finally help with the close combat problem that primaris have desperately needed?

Or will we get a new heavy support choice with a minigun?

I hope that vehicle is a new, cheaper transport. Looks like a stripped back Repulsor which I'd be down with as long as it costs less points. And the dread looks like it could be cool.

Keen to see the proper reveal which I hope is soon.

The chunks sticking out from the sides are definitely NOT sponsons. The view from the picture with the hands definitely shows they are not weapons. They have flat fronts, no weapon barrels or missiles. My guess is they are the boosters like what the Repulsor has in the back. So the idea that this is a stripped down transport is pretty well on the money.

Another idea it might be, and I'm not saying I LIKE this idea, is some sort of scout vehicle. if those things are the side are jet boosters, it's a bit odd given it presuambly blocks the side doors. and it does apper to have something on top, maybe a sensor dish. so we're looking at a lighter faster version, whose parts suggest it's not optimzied for infantry carry. (although I bet it'll be capable of carrying an infantry squad) given it's release along side the vanguard, I could definatly see this being a light scout tank, sort of a space marine Salamander.

Yeah, they did a good job obscuring anything that can tell us what this thing actually can do. There are some round sections on the sides toward the front that might be some sort of door, but that would be really bizarre and out of place for a Space Marine vehicle. I see the thing you are thinking might be a radar dish on the top toward the front. I almost think that might be a pintle Gunner though. There is some sort of turret toward the back though, so this thing probably won't be lugging around ten Marines. Probably more of a Razorback type capacity.

It doesn't make speculating and seeing other people's theories any less fun though.

The Dreadnought and the Tank are what I am most interested in. The Las Fusils are probably Str 8, AP-3, d3 or d6 damage based on their Apocalypse stats. So Eliminators don't really intrigue me.

I’ve been contemplating a Primaris army of late, but the current offerings don’t strike me as presenting a well rounded enough force.

In the non blurry pic with the hands it looks like the "dread" might have a cockpit/canopy. I think it might actually be a scout Walker rather than a dread.

I agree that’s what it looks like. There seems to be a whole marine sat in there, not just a bit of one.

It looks like this is the full release for the shadowspear stuff, minus the suppressors. That kind of makes sense as they aren’t in Phobos armour, I guess.

Maybe primaris will be released in themed groups a bit like the stormcast were. I think Vanguard is even the name given to the sneaky versions of both forces. So first we got the basic intercessors, who are a lot like liberators. Now we get the sneaky guys. In future we might get a bunch of heavy shooty ones, or some choppy melee types - or whatever. Maybe they’ll stick rigidly to the formula and we’ll get a bunch of holy female marines next... wait!

Given the no primaris Grey Knights comments from GW I believe there will be a chamber of specialist psyker/anti-psyker primaris marines either before or after the chamber of heavy armoured/weaponry primaris and whatever the next chamber of stormcast are.

Primaris do seem to be designed around the same layout of sigmarines which Is a little ironic given they were created to be fantasy marines but now the marines are being copied from the sigmarines.

Eh, I guess if you want to see it, you'll see it. What modern Marines and Sigmarines have in common is that they are the designated hero faction that carries the setting and as such need to fill every conceivable battlefield role so as to allow every last potential customer to tailor their (Sig)Marine army to their exact preferences. There's no way to have meaningful distinction of two miniature lines if both build on the exact same design principle.

Almost certainly not. It's just a joke. GW isn't going to start releasing stuff on Tuesdays.

This could well be one of the occasional far ahead forecasts that GW does. We're seeing models previewed weeks or months before they land nowadays - e.g. with the Repulsor Executioner. I'd love for these models to be out in two weeks but there's no proof that's the case, sadly.

Ah, the archetypal Marine release day.

It'll be interesting to see. AoS open day is on the 20th and the first opportunity to play Warcry. If that's the preorder date for it, too, we'll have one week between Chaos Knights and that. Else Marines will be after, and we don't know if Warcry will occupy just one week or more.

It could be 723 days after July 17, 2017 (8th Edition release date). Or maybe 723 days after the current Codex: Space Marines codex was released (which was like two weeks after that, if I remember right). Or literally just a random number they tossed out.

That was stated basically by Jervis in his interview. The next wave will be heavier support based on Gravis armour.

As an additional thought, I don't believe the dudes on the left are infiltrators, they don't have any projections from the top of their backacks. So maybe a new unit entirely or reivers/infils with different weapons/options?

What's likely happening is that it's an announcement for a revamped Marines book that won't be up for preorder for a bit. We know there's an Iron Hands character coming, we know there's stuff coming for Vanguard, and I wouldn't be shocked to see another Gravis kit.

What's the 23rd month?

The premise behind the speculation, currently, is simply that they wanted to make a joke work alongside of a little "easter egg" for something to come. Since July 20th is the Age of Sigmar Open Day, them starting a teaser campaign for a new 'phase' of the whole Primaris thing wouldn't be out of the question on the 23rd.

Yeah yeah yeah, Brits write things D/M/Y...but that's what makes the easter egg work. If they'd written it as episode 237, we'd likely be having the same discussion with people talking about how "we Brits write our dates like that"

Warcry
AoS Sylvaneth battletome
Elf Blood Bowl team
New Titanicus knights & cards
Necromunda Enforcers (confirmed as August)
Another Blackstone expansion

Many of the specialist games items could may even be covered in a single week. I'd expect to see the new marines by late August / early Sept barring any surprises.

Weird, when I had joint training with the Canadian Army, the Lieutenants were referred to Lieutenants not Leftenants. Though by that time I was already a Captain, so maybe I just wasn't listening to it when it was said.

You left out the Quebecois which I think is a violation of some code or something in your country; they want to be neither but instead choose to want to be French! Even if the actual French will have nothing to do with them while taking humorous delight in their provincial "French" accents... or at least the two I've known in real life did!

French person here, I can confirm that Quebecois accent are absolutely, irremediably hilarious.
It's extremely disturbing when hearing actually dark things said with a Quebecois accent because you still can't shake the feeling that the person is talking in a voluntarily silly voice.

Switzerland is not laicistic and will never be, which insofar is good since the swiss state can intervene directly into religious ideology if unhappy (generally though the Federal level doesn't because Kantons solve their own issues.) . (regarding the last ruling of the federal jurisdiction you have no influence as a newcomer torwards local tradition i.e.cowbells, churchbells and or Fastnacht especially if you are not of the area.)

Also switzerland does not seperate Church from the state. (Teilung not Trennung) split of competences not Separation.

Adapt or don't bother is my recomendation.

Also rather the churchbells then general malaise.

Btw swiss german is not a dialect, it's literally german v 0,5 an older Version that also not had to suffer through lingua terci imperi.

The unit was from Quebec, so that might have made a difference too. Trying to give/receive report on a "patient" with a fairly heavy accent (and I am from Minnesota, we practically sound Canadian anyway) was quite interesting. Definitely one of the more fun exercises I have been a part of.

The deviation primarily occurs today because of Brits feeling like they were being accosted by using the French pronounciation. Only the Commonwealth countries use Leftenant. The rest of the known universe uses Lieutenant.

Whoah.. my throwaway joke about the Quebecois...



I suppose it is thematic to have former colonial overlords making fun of the provincial American accents though given that tomorrow is the 4th of July. It makes me glad to live in America where we only need to look from sea to shining sea for a wealth of silly accents! From my personal New England favs like NY/NJ extra on a gangster movie to the Da Bears superfan to the unintelligible at times Southern drawl to the nails on a chalkboard that is Boston's take on English, we need to look no further! Happy 4th of July tomorrow!

Quebec is to a person from France a bit silly sounding. you gotta put it into context here. the British conquered New France (aka Quebec) in 1760. After that Quebec was an island of French surrounded by Anglophones with Anglophone rulers. They fought hard to preserve their language (it's honestly impressive French is still spoken today when you think about it) thing is, the language thus hasn't changed much since the conquest. Well French in France has, understandably evolved. So a frenchman hearing a Quebecquis speaking French it'd be like an English speaking having someone walk up and start speaking Shakespearian English at them. Understandably it might be hard to take them too seriously. This is pretty common knowledge among Canadians.

whatever way the then dominate english speaking power speaks it, a century ago I bet they pronounced it Leftenant

on a slightly differant note, I'll give Battletech props, one of their factions uses the English prounciation and they just spell it Leftenant to remove any and all doubt. GW should consider the same TBH

I don't know. But I know that in most countries where English is taught as a second language, the British English is the regional variant predominately being taught. Of course how people actually speak is influenced greatly by other factors, such as popular culture, and that may favour American spellings/pronunciation.

At any rate, however they spell or pronounce the word(for the record, the painting guide videos pronounce it lieu not left), it looks like we might finally be getting a general release of a Lieutenant model with this upcoming release. The image with the commentator pointing at the model seems to show a model Phobos Armor with a Combat Knife and a standard Bolt Pistol. His helmet on his hip has the red and white stripes if a Lieutenant helmet. He might have a Bolt Carbine slung on his back (I think I can kinda see a grip sticking out to his right), but I am not remotely sure. I don't really see the grab chute the LT from Shadowspear was equipped with, so who knows if that is going to be standard equipment or an option.

What I would really like, despite it not looking to be the case, is for that model with the cape/cloak to be a Techmarine, but he is wearing blue with no visible red, so that is probably a no.

Speaking of Techmarines, there is that Iron Hands character that will probably drop with the rest of these marines.

Back on the differences between the writings of dates, I think the most important part is the month, as it gives you the best general idea of what to expect for weather in a region. So, since I read from left to right, seeing the month first is best in my opinion.

perhaps you should actually read the news, this isn't some primaris leuitenant... this is a SPECIAL primaris leuitenant. ohh and a multipart Infiltrator kit, and a new transport, ohh and a multipart eliminator kit, and a new dreadnought.. but the thing to take away from this is there's also a primaris Lt!

Again, if this guy is in his own clam pack, it is the first Primaris Lieutenant that will have a standard, individual release. Ever. That is actually important news. I get that Primaris Lieutenants are basically a meme character now, but this is actually news.

But that is a footnote to the new Primaris Tank. And Dreadnought. And multi-part Eliminators (that are likely to have the Las Fusils, which is an Anti-Tank weapon, closing one of the holes Primaris armies have). And multi-part Infiltrators.

This release actually seems like it is filling a lot of gaps that people have for Primaris. It is going to be interesting. And that doesn't include the fact that we are likely to be getting a new Codex Space Marines with this release too.

You have something against dakka? Because this really isn't the place...

I'm one of those very rare people who actually likes the repulsor. I think it’s the right kind of thing for space marines to go around in – tough, incredibly well-armed and mobile. It never made sense to me to have marines going around in rhinos, which were fragile, virtually unarmed and not particularly quick.

For the same reason, I’ve always quite liked the stormraven. I look forward to getting some kind of Primaris flyer.

I think for me it's the aesthetic of the Primaris tanks.

I've absolutely no problem with the main hull weapons, including the Heavy Stubbers. But the little rocket pods and that look literally tacked on. Like a younger, more enthusiastic Grotsnik went a bit bonkers in the ol' Bitz Box, and decided to up-gun it.

By all means, there's no reason the model shouldn't have that many weapons. But man, the execution.

it's the natural evolution for marine tanks, old marines went for the WWI aesthetic for their inspiration,

the primeris is looking to the 30s pre WWII when lots of tanks with multiple turrets were designed by pretty much everybody (many of which looked like the designer had been scrabbling in the bits box)a

Edit: and quite a few of them had a pretty mixed loadout too, infanty suppression with MG turrets, antitank with 37/45mm high velocity guns, and anti fortification/infanty support with a larger lower velocity howitzer

If they retained that retro charm with excessively riveted hulls and non-streamlined hulls that would be one thing, but GW is going for a sleek sci-fi look instead. Honestly Primaris look much more sci-fi anime than real world inspired to me in that regard.

I dread to see the Dread. It's a sad, skinny looking thing from what I can discerned from the blurred video. I really hope good pictures will change that impression. I love Dreadnoughts. Except Contemptors. They're contemptible.

Can't disagree disliking the icarus rocket pod. It's a funny looking thing and weird in the game. I find that it's irritating to have to fire the thing, usually with no effect.

It might make sense for a tank like a repulsor to have some kind of AA gun attached. What makes no sense is to have a tiny one that does nothing.

I'm not much of a fan of the grenade launchers either. They'd be cooler if they were belt fed grenade launchers that could pivot to aim at things, rather than these weird boxes containing a few grenades to be fired in random directions.

I do like the coaxial guns and pintle mounts, which are pretty like real tanks. The little storm bolter turrets are a bit silly but I quite like them.

I see the grenade launchers as more being intended to be fired off just before you let your troops off in a circle around the vehicle. the idea not being to kill anyone but to supress enemy fire as your troops disembark. and frankly would have liked to see rules to reflectthat use rathert then just 'moar gunz!"

I do not believe that is correct. The Tau are anime inspired.

The first Space Marines were distinctly Medieval in design, featuring highly segmented foot armour and a Bascinet style helm. I believe, though I forget where I heard it, that the more detailed armour styling on the feet was changed because the Plastic moulding technology of the time was not up to the task. The decision to change the legs to the RTB01 style (first plastic Space Marines) of flared leg armour has informed the design of Space Marines ever since.

Re: Inflation - a 10 man squad is £20-30 today. 75p (1987 price) x 10 figures x (inflation rate 2.76) = £20.70 Remembering that VAT (unavoidable tax) is actually higher now @20% than the 15% rate it was in 1987, so just under £22 in current money.

Anyway, looking forward to finding out whatever it is hidden behind the blurry pics in Primaris Lt. News. My guess is a GW/Sanrio tie-in.

Maybe the first few Rogue Trader ones. But Jes Goodwin in particular has been very explicit that anime has been/is the main inspiration for Marines since the late 90s.

Here's what he said about the first plastic Terminators released over 20 years ago.

This recent overhaul of the Terminator design brings it into line with progress made in appearance of the Space Marines in general. The suit is now bigger and takes on the “Anime” proportions bestowed on the rest of the range – longer legs, wider shoulders and a bigger chest. The larger bases and plastic component nature of the hard copies allows for more versatile poses especially in the legs giving the suits more dynamism. The hip shields are inherited from the new Grey Knight designs. Characters in Mark 3c suits are available but no traitor versions have yet appeared.


Tau have big Robots, true (especially since about 2014 with the release of the Riptide. But the visuals aren't nearly as "anime" as those of Space Marines (or Eldar, for that matter) with their wasp waist and literal oversized-anime-eyes-eye-lenses, etc..

Yeah but that is not exactly the correct comparison is it given that they were hand cast metal models being compared to mass produced plastics, the odd remains current metal marine is what about £15 I think so a 500% increase . As such the reality’s a little less rosy than just saying but there in line with inflation, if you wanted to be kinder to GW you can compare the original plastic marine box set to the modern marines adjusting for inflation roughly speaking the original box would be £26.54 compared to either £25 for mini marines or £35 for Primaris so that’s not too bad.
Oh hang on I nearly forgot the original box had 30 Marines so that’s £75.00 for mini’s or £105 for Primaris so 300% & 400% increases which yeah is better than the metal marines but still not great.

Those original marines were great. The first time I saw Primaris Phobos armour, the legs looked to me like a callback to those original marines. I reckon you could get a pretty good approximation by using Phobos armour with Mark VI helmets and standard shoulder armour.

Google anime mecha from the 60s to the 80s and try not to see a bunch of multi color space marines. Most have large shoulders and flared legs.

Giant robots from Mazinger, Gundam (especially the Zaku) and even Macross. You can see where the space marine has its roots.

We'll have to agree to disagree.

There's only so many ways to articulate an armoured suit, some similarities are inevitable but coincidental. To say Space Marines are rooted in anime is to ignore what Citadel Miniatures were producing in the mid 80's and what their influences were. 40k is literally the original Warhammer in space with medieval fantasy sensibilities e.g. melee combat. The only futuristic designs Citadel were producing prior to that were based on 2000ad licenses. That's why the Space Marine bikes look like Judge Dredd's Lawmaster motorcycle.

For what it's worth, Crimson fists as Crimson fists are reasonably good since the white dwarf rules came out.

I've thought about using reiver bodies with spare intercessor arms myself, to create a different-looking marine. This has mainly been prompted by the fact that I've got some reiver bodies, which would be useless as actual reivers but potentially useful as something else.

I reckon I might be able to use spare bits from the infiltrator kit when it comes out and make them into more infiltrators. I already used one body to create a standing eliminator, so I didn't have identical crouching ones in my shadowspear set.

The very first were just space knights, I agree. But the design that made GW millions and is the one everybody in the hobby is aware of is inspired by Japanese giant robot cartoons. And it is fine that they are. Those kinds of shows were pretty popular at the time (80s-90s) in the West and have very cool and noticable designs that would look great on the table (and did look great).

Jes acknowledges this so I think SM players who have been making fun of Tau need to come to terms with the fact that they have been playing the "anime" army all along (other than the Eldar who are so anime their guns shoot ninja stars).

I don't know, I'm kind of expecting to see something revising some things from the old Marines into single units rather than multi-units like they are now(Land Raiders, Terminators, Captains, Librarians, Chaplains, and Veterans notably) to kind of pare things down.

Looking at it:
3x Land Raider profiles that could be reworked into at least two.
Terminators are in 4 different profiles(Tartaros, Cataphractii, Assault, Terminator) that could be condensed into two(Assault and Terminator) that just have bespoke rules for Tartaros, Cataphractii, or 'vanilla'.
Captains have 4 profiles(Terminator/Cataphractii, Vanilla, Bike) that can be condensed into just a Captain profile with bespoke rules for the wargear they might buy.
Librarians and Chaplains have 3 profiles(Terminator, Jump Pack and Vanilla) which can do the same.
Veterans have 3 entries(Company, Sternguard, Vanguard) which could be rolled into one and given bespoke rules for wargear.

That's a whopping 20 profiles that could be rolled down into 8.
Hell, and I forgot Bikes and Attack Bikes! Could put them as a single squad option and bump 22 into 10. That's...yeah. That opens up some room for the Vanguard stuff.

Not really. GW never releases two big releases at once, those cannibalize sales (someone like me who plays both armies would have proably spent half of what they will with this release schedule)

let's consider some facts here. The last boxed set similer to Shadowspear we got, introduceing two armies worth of new units, was Dark Imperium. Which gave us wave 1 of Primaris marines, and Deathguard.

Dark Imperium was released in June 2017, followed by Space Marines in July 2017 as the first major codex release of 8th edition. Deathguard waited until september 2017 a good 3-4 months later.

now then Shadowspear and Codex Chaos Space Marines came out in March. it is now July. about 4 months later. so assuming a late July to early/mid august releaste date.. it's a good 4 or so months late.

Meanwhile Deathwatch Overkill came out for 7th edition in Febuary 2016, and it took until the SUMMER for GW to finally put out codex death watch and GSC. a 6 and 7th month wait respectivly.

So despite your claiming it's a "very long time" when one steps back and looks at GW's past release schedules. if the new Marines Vanguard stuff comes out in Late July or sometime in August...

It's actually about right on schedule.

I'm not getting into this in-depth, but suffice to say:

If they were concerned about "cannibalizing sales"? They wouldn't have released the CSM full kit within 2 weeks of the box.
Death Guard was a full range release, not simply resculpts or a few characters. Anyone expecting them immediately after the drops we saw in the start of 8th(Primaris was effectively a whole range drop and we saw a huge chunk of books released between DI and DG, including GK and CSM) was deluding themselves.
Deathwatch: Overkill was a board game, previewing a new range...and it was while they were working on 40k 8th edition.

Last but not least, we literally have had things implied that after Sororitas are released? They've got plans to revise the early released books.

Oh, and if I want to add another footnote:
Look at the way Stormcast were done.

irrelevant both death weatch and GSC came out for 7th edition.

my point is simply that the wait has, when one looks at the facts not been super long.


If they were concerned about "cannibalizing sales"? They wouldn't have released the CSM full kit within 2 weeks of the box.

Irrelevant, I bought a buncha CSMs and shadowspear.

if they had had the vanguard come out alongside CSMs I would have had to make a chocie as to what to buy. I am one of the people who plays both Space Marines and Chaos Space Marines.

Ancient- one per can upgrade to chapter ancient. (2 entries into 1)
Company veterans- may upgrade into either sternguard, vanguard, or honor guard. Vanguard get extra ccw and options for jump packs, Honour guard get artificer armor, sternguard get special issue ammo (4 entries into 1)
Champion- one per army can upgrade into chapter champion (2 entries into 1)
Terminators- allow mixed assault and melee squads. May upgrade to tartaros or cataphractii armor. (4 entries into 1)

sadly well this wpould save space it seems GW is avoiding this from a design philophsy POV, but the question is, will Marines force GW to change this design philophesy for a future edition? I think so. the Marine codex is getting to a size where GW's going to have to make a hard choice. and it'll come down to the following.

1: Trim out old or "unnesscary" units. (GW could for example expand the options terminators can take and just treat cataphracti and taratos as purely a cosmetic choice. They could also drop vanguard and sternguard veterns and simply make them "veterns") this would limit choices and see some grumbling.

2: Divide the space marine codices into codex Space Marines and Codex Primaris Marines. this runs the risk of embedding the old vs new community divide and IMHO is proably the worst choice here.

3: change their "data sheet for every variation of a unit" philoiphesy and go back to the old "one data sheet that is modded by wargear that you know the rules for. such as a single captain entry that simply says "may upgrade to terminator armor fo X points. may take a jump [ack for Y points")

IMHO 3 would be the most popular choice for the player base, and I suspect 1 might be where GW might consider going. I mean right now company veterns is something I could very easily see being cut.

My guess is from the (admittedly blurry) bits shown that it'll be a Primaris command squad with lots of bits and options so that they can open up some choices for the models.

Ooo, I could maybe see that. Maybe a dual kit of Infiltrators (there are definitely Infiltrators based on the image with the hands point at the Lieutenant) and a Command Squad?

could be, or it could be they where previewing a 5 man command squad and a 5 man infiltrator squad to throw us off scent. remember back when Primaris first came out, you could buy 5 man combat squad boxes?

Would be a really easy way to release an Ancient and some Lieutenants outside of Dark Imperium...but I'm not expecting Command Squads for Primaris personally.

I would expect stuff to end up more akin to the Heresy/Crusade organization thanks to Guilliman's influence. It's why I'm wondering if what appears to be a model wearing a camo-cloak in that group shot might be our first look at a Moritat-inspired Lieutenant.

So I'm going to make a prediction. Pre-orders of Augest tenth. my reasons? we have Volume 2 of the Uriel Ventris Chronicals AND Knights of Macragge both up for pre-order that day. GW doesn't really tie novel releases into mini releases too much anymore and the more obvious releases when they do, tend not to be advertised, but given we have two ultramarine books both valaibler at the same time makes we suspect.

All the models have sculpted pads from the SW upgrade sprue. Those are not compatible with the ETB kits.

I wonder if the other codex variant chapters will get a box as well? Instead of Agressors BA could have Inceptors and the DA could have a 5 man Helblaster squad. While a vanilla box without any upgrade sprues could have two 10 man squads.

Got to agree, I aren't sure why they used the wolves for this, does feel like if it ditched the wolves sprue and the battle leader, pop in a librarian/chaplain/captain, bang a £50 sticker on and enjoy the sales.

They should if they're built with boltstorm gauntlets if you look closely you'll be able to see the ones in the preview pic are built with flamers. The agressors in T&C where built the same way. This really IS T&C without the dread

Instead of the Redemptor, the kit has 5 additional Intercessors (so a full 10-man kit instead of T&C's 5-man). I'll be passing on this since I already have the SW half of T&C. The Tsons one is interesting, although putting Ahriman in it means nobody is going to want more than one unless the price point is really good. Speaking of which, do we know what the price point of these will be (SC boxes vary a little these days).

It they instead had a hellblaster sprue instead of a second Intercessor one, I'd buy it right away. I'm admittedly not looking to build an optimized army for this edition but rather just to mix and match a few figs for fun.

Post by: BrianDavion


hellblasters would make it swerve too far into the ehavy support grouping for a SC box. more useful maybe but.. I think it'd be a solid thing to buy WITH KNF actually. combine this with KNF and you have 3 sqauds of intercessors. 1 squad of hellblasters, a wolf lord, a battle leader and 3 agressors. not the best army but a very solid foundation to build from.

At first I thought you were talking about the Leman Russ executioner and for a moment was confused. It just now occurred to me that there are two Imperial battle tanks now with this designation.

I would really like if it GW would stop doing this. It's one thing to have the same unit name used in completely disparate armies (i.e. Drukhari Reavers vs. Space Marine Reavers), but having stuff like multiple battle tanks called executioners and primaris rhinos (which can't transport primaris marines), Vanguard Space Marines and "vanguard" Space Marines, etc. is starting to get really irritating.

Sorry for the confusion. I thought it would be pretty clear since this is a Primaris thread.

Your wider point is very true. The Primaris rhino that can't transport Primaris marines is my favourite one of these. I hadn't thought of the vanguard vets thing.

Primaris Reivers are spelled differently to the many other kinds of reavers kicking around the 40k universe. And they are awful, so they don't actually exist in any meaningful way. I hate the concept of them though, and the hilarious suggestion that a marine should be scary just because he has a silly hat on.

Post by: Kawauso


Oh the confusion wasn't on you, no worries. I should have figured it out.

But when I saw "executioner" the first thing that came to my mind was the model/unit that has been in the game for years already (and also is a tank with sponsons that are kind of odd in terms of how they fit on the hull) - it's totally on GW that it made me do a double-take. I just took the opportunity to use your post to highlight why I think this is an issue (however minor) and vent a bit about it. I wouldn't mind so much if they wouldn't keep on doing this.

There are so many words in the English language that they really don't need to be rehashing stuff like this.


primaris leftenant news (and some other stuff...) @ 2019/07/08 13:22:00


Post by: Mandragola


“Executioner” seems to be the name that GW (or the Imperium) gives to its tanks that have a really big plasma gun on them. So you also have the predator executioner https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-GB/Deimos-Pattern-Predator-Executioner, for example.

So in this case it’s arguably a consistent description or classification, rather than just a duplication. This doesn’t quite work if you stick a really big laser on your repulsor instead, of course, but it means they don’t have to create a new datasheet.

Fair enough - but they really seem to be selling the executioner on that big laser canon it has; I forgot it had the plasma option.

It should have a different appellation for the laser canon config, IMHO.

There was an article somewhere (a GW article, though - that or an interview with Bryan Ansell) where it was discussed that they wanted a visual profile that was distinct, and that going with that, they based the Space Marine design off the Chaos Warrior from WHFB.

Well, according to Wikipedia:

Etymology
The word lieutenant derives from French; the lieu meaning "place" as in a position (cf. in lieu of); and tenant meaning "holding" as in "holding a position"; thus a "lieutenant" is a placeholder for a superior, during their absence (compare the Latin locum tenens).

In the 19th century, British writers who considered this word either an imposition on the English language, or difficult for common soldiers and sailors, argued for it to be replaced by the calque "steadholder". However, their efforts failed, and the French word is still used, along with its many variations (e.g. lieutenant colonel, lieutenant general, lieutenant commander, flight lieutenant, second lieutenant and many non-English language examples), in both the Old and the New World.[citation needed]

Pronunciation
Pronunciation of lieutenant is generally split between the forms /lɛfˈtɛnənt/ (About this soundlisten) lef-TEN-ənt and /luːˈtɛnənt/ (About this soundlisten) loo-TEN-ənt, with the former generally associated with the armies of British Commonwealth countries and the Republic of Ireland; and the latter generally associated with anyone from the United States or other Western Hemisphere countries.[2] The early history of the pronunciation is unclear; Middle English spellings suggest that the /luː-/ and /lɛf-/ pronunciations may have existed even then.[3] The rare Old French variant spelling luef for Modern French lieu ('place') supports the suggestion that a final [u] of the Old French word was in certain environments perceived as an [f].[3] Furthermore, in Latin, the lingua franca of the era, the letter v is used for both you and v.

In Royal Naval tradition—and other English-speaking navies outside the United States—a reduced pronunciation /ləˈtɛnənt/ (About this soundlisten) is used. This is not recognised as current by recent editions of the OED (although the RN pronunciation was included in editions of OED up until the 1970s).

It is a bit more complicated than that (the Latin V was pronounced like the letter U or W anyway). And the Lieu usage predates America as a country. The Brits likely used the Left usage to spite the French.

At any rate, this was discussed at length a few pages back.

Is Luft an abbreviation of lef-tenant? It would mean Luft Huron then a replacement Huron? Which could be another joke name for 40K like:

No, because it’s Lugft, not Luft, and the abbreviation of Lieutenant (we don’t spell it leftenant) is Lt.

At any rate, I wonder when we are going to get any more information on this new release. When is the two-year anniversary of the SM codex?

Pretty sure Dark Imperium came out in June 2 years ago. We should either be upon the 2 year anniversary of the SM Codex or past it already as it was the first to be released.

Thing is, this week is a bunch of random (though awaited) preorders, and then they promised Warcry this month, and you know that they're going to hype that quite a bit more before it comes out. There's two more warbands that they haven't revealed yet, after all.

If Space Marines are going to get something new, it'll likely be at the end of June or into August.

Ok, I get the whole lots of Primaris Lieutenants gag, but what’s with the “Left”tenents thing?

Brits pronounce "Lieutenant" as Leftenant.
See the teaser video and their vice-versa corrections.


This is why we left. They couldn't even pronounce their own language!

Guys, let's stick to the topic please.

As for the pronunciation, it was polled and the Primaris Lieutenant has decreed that..

Thanks for voting in this Pronunciation Poll, everyone - with your input, I can now confirm it's pronounced "Primaris Lieutenant".
All other pronunciations are heresy.

So this isn't nesscarrily related to the upcoming release and we may not see any of these models in production, but there's an image from a GW recruitement trainee thingy that shows some models we've not seeing before, including

Could be a genuine slip up(remember how the GSC Kelermorph accidently got put in the display cabinets?) or they could be scrapped/unused test or concept sculpts.

So the plastic Commissar was a trainee sculpt?

Makes sense...

If the pic is from a recruitment promotion, they'll be test sculpts done by trainee sculptors or applicants. One of the things they get prospective sculptors to do is to reproduce an existing model, to show how well they can match the style.

The thing that jumps out at me from that pic is that the Commissar appears to be better proportioned than the 'real' model...

Plasma pistol isn't oversized? The head looks like it belongs to the same scale miniature as the body?

Which are the new ones? The dude in the middle with all the skulls looks very dark apostle to me, but he also has a marine backpack so I can't tell? If loyalist I can't remember seeing a marine with those sorts of markings.

Likewise the guy on the far left, he's flying, has a power maul with something trailing off it, an iron halo as well so some kind of captain?

yeah those are the two new ones, the one that looks dark apostate is actually a space Marine, look closely and you'll see he's definatly wearing MK X armor.

There is also an Ork Nob / Warboss floating in the back that doesn’t seem to match current sculpts (behind the Deathwatch Commander).

The ork looks like an old, metal Nob with a weapon swap I think?

Yeah it's the old metal Ork Warboss with other weapons. i wonder what that orange thing behind it is though.
