Yeah... I love most of the primaris stuff, and I like the old boxy dreads, but that new dread...I'm not a fan. The stuff on the 'chest is too much, it would be better just with a plain sarcophagus (I wonder if there is complete one underneath?) And as the upper body is so massive, the legs look scrawny, and that is not helped by how the knees are bent like they were bucking under the weight. I think it wound be greatly improved by having the legs straight in a solid pose and adding some extra armour on shins to bulk the legs up.

Call me a Loyalist, though I think I am going to leave the Nurgle mark off the top of the Lord of Contagion, and trim off the other flame ball as well.

I haven't seen a paint job yet that doesn't that fake smoke/flame justice, and I am nowhere near as good a painter as the dudes who work for GW.

I am hoping for a variation with an exposed sarcophagus like the Venerable Dreadnought. The way the front plates only cover part of the traditional sarcophagus makes that almost seem likely. And if not, it will probably be easy enough to modify it to be that way.

I think the stumpy legs are largely a result of the perspective of the camera. We don't have any real dead-on pictures of it.

I like the dreadnaught a lot more seeing it from a top down angle. Not sure if I prefer it over the classic or the leviathan yet though

I don't like the dread. Looks awkward, and not in a deliberate way . Even the assault cannon doesn't look right. The size is the only positive, older dreads are tiny. Still: Angry, stompy dishwashers 4 life.

I really like the nuMarines in other colours, though (except the bolt riflea, I love the stubby look of regular bolters).



PS: Why put tbe new starter up on the site but without a preorder option and no 360 shots?

The starter isn't on the site, there's a bit on the front page that links to the news article on warhammer Community but that's all.

Well, with the release of the Primaris Marines I guess that GW will make larger tanks and transports for them which may become standard in the Imperium.

Huh. Looks more like a LR variant to me. The position of the lights, the hull-mounted Heavy Bolters (look sorta Mk II-ish)...plus it's shown with normal SM near it.

But it's got some sort of turret on it...a demolisher?

Looks like it's supposed to be a cross between a land raider and a razorback to me. Looks to have an assault ramp at the front at least?

The Dark Eldar got a pretty HUGE release… just before being neglected again. Though not as neglected as Sisters, they still got some few new release and some printed, translated dex…


Yeah , thats what I was saying. Normally factions receive a big release like that once in a lifetime (Sometimes is just enough. Revamp the faction and add some kits every year).

Tyranids?

Their model range is among the largest ones, and it is pure plastic.

Well, almost pure plastic.

*looks at Pyrovores, Biovores and Lictors*

Red Terror, Deathleaper and Spore Mines Cluster. All resin too


Plastic Spore Mines exist.

I know, but are they not only available with models? Separate ones are resin only if I am not wrong.

For a fair comparison, have an ultramarines coloured one:



The issue is limb proportion to torso proportion, especially the legs. The legs on the Redemptor look frail, and the knee pads stick out oddly. Arms also look like they weren't really designed for the same mech as the body they've been welded to.

Due to the completely different torsos the Redemptor and the Leviathan are going for wildly different looks, which will come down to personal taste. I think the leviathan pulls off a cohesive design better through.

The Librarian pictured is just the Terminator Librarian kit from a couple years ago.

The tank looks like it has the Land Raiders body, but with all sorts of different additions to it. Probably a whole different top and front piece. A turret on the top makes it basically the fusion of a Land Raider and Razorback.

That makes me very worried that Primaris Marines will not be able to ride in a Rhino.

Yeah, I see 2 guns. A storm bolter or similar on the hull, and something on top.

Just like a razorback or predator CAN take now. Oh, they can take a one shot missile launcher, too.

Land raiders get 2 sponsons that each shoot 2 lascannon, a hull mounted, 6 shot heavy bolter, and can add a pintle-mounted Multimelta. They're not having problems sleeping from shot envy...

Edit: spell check changed pintle to pointless, which isn't inaccurate. I always roll a 1 with the damn thing

Would you prefer a tank with bolter as a turret weapon?

As someone building a MkIV space marine army, I can safely say I'll be buying more MkIV marines. Because I like MkIV space marines.


And since new ones look oversized next to them won't buy new ones ever. I would need lottery jackpot to replace old ones so it's buy old ones or none.

New ones aren't that great i feel replacing hundreds. Plus they aren't in hh marks. Hh is currently gw's best game i will concentrate at

I have been buying the old 3rd edition rhinos off eBay.

I look forward to people selling their perfectly good 4th edition rhinos (current) to upscale their armies.

More cheap rhinos for the crusade!!!
