Why bring chainswords, power weapons or heretic for the Primaris.

I am sure that will come later. The Inceptors will get a box with a chainsword variant I am sure. I would bet every box is 5 man dual kits for $60ish.

What happened to our daily 40k articles? We didn't get one yesterday (just a faction focus which are usually in addition to the article) and there still isn't one up for today.

Why bring a bolter? I bet they just get a chain sabre or some such crap and it will add more attacks and have an ap -1 just like every other weapon they have.

I am guessing we are just going to get coverage of the event in place of the normal info.

Sadly, they currently don't. I hope that once we get multipart kits they'll get some. It is an iconic marine weapon.

Just use the evicerator off the current assault marine kit. I bet ebay is full of them.

I hope so as well. Despite my dislike of the hamfisted way they're cramming them into the setting, I do like the models and would like to make a small skirmish level force consisting of a combat squad with tradition weapons including a chainsword for the sergeant.

That deadnought looks like Space Marines stole a killa can from the orks and slapped some paint on it.

The "head" looks particularly orky to me.

If he got a nip-and-tuck the dreadnought would be a fine model, shame its got a beer belly and skipped leg day.

Its just theory and whining about it this early seems a bit pointless, but based on the revealed profiles I don't see how the Death Guard starter has a hope against the Primaris starter unless the characters do the heavy lifting.


Has there ever been fair starter sets? 3rd was worst with invincible unit in there but all have been unbalanced.

FB 6th ed might have been most balanced

there should be another objectives sprue with the mini-drop pod and the medical chair. you can see the drop pod window and the chair's light on the clear part of the first sprue (Those objectives are begging for LEDs!)

Yup.

Escape Pod comes with the option to have it crashed and embedded, or intact.

And apparently, the chair fits the Reaver Titan Princeps!

And here's two bonus photos of the Redemptor chassis, showing off some previously unshared (I think) weapons. Missile or a rockets in the sarcophagus, and some rotary weapon on the Power Fist

The new dread looks like a decent re-imagining of the old-school dread, I like everything about him except the overly massive codpiece armor and the weedy legs. With some modifications, I think it would look 100x better.

The clear parts are clipped onto the sprue if you look carefully enough.

New dreadnought looks to me a lot like the Dragon battlemech from the Battletech series. Mainly that potbelly part is what does it.

Yeah, likely the grey is molded around the clear in a second run.

Yeah, it looks like the sprue is designed for the clear bits to be snapped on. So not as impressive as it first looked.

I suspect grey and clear are cast in the same mould by the same machine but in a 2 step process,

cast grey, remove plugs that block off clear section, cast clear, remove whole thing

but its cool whichever way it's done

I don't suppose they'll be selling those separately?
