Yeah. GW resin models aren't a good comparison agaisn't plastic. Even FW ones. But compare the best plastic models out there (GW, Malifaux) agaisn't Infinity metal models or resin models like the Mierce ones.

I prefer plastic, all the day of the week. But plastic isn't as good as Metal and Resin as capturing fine and 3D detail. I don't know why, for some people, to acknowledge that is so difficult. Like they are in some kind of ProPlastic-Crusade where they need to deny any kind of advantage, however minimal, of metal and resin


Seems to me like GW's solution to that problem is the sweeping embiggening they embarked on. Bigger models means detail looks quite fine relative to the size of the model, while not having to actually be as fine as a resin model would allow.

Me, I'd prefer if Marbo was in plastic, but recent resin models by GW don't have the problems as early Finecast models. And with the possible exception of the pistol, nothing on the model looks so delicate that it should be prone to bending. He'll probably come out fine in resin.

Picked one up today; it’s finecast but his rules are neat, though lacking a point cost for matched play.

Can you link us the rules I would really like to see them.

No linky but I can give a general gist:
• Hits on twos
• Wounds Infantry on twos
• Has four attacks and the pistol shoots thrice
• Special Ambush deployment is standard deep strike outside of 9" as is typical but can then also choose one from these three options:
– Move an extra D6" and get +2 A
– Make an extra shoot action and gain the ability to target characters
– Deal D3/D6 mortal wounds to a unit
• Once per game can disappear and redeploy using the above rule again
• Can’t take orders or have a Warlord trait
• Power 4

Does his weapon have any AP attached to it? An ambushing Marbo could be a lot of fun to throw in if he is able to do some major damage to characters.

I dont believe he does

though its still a lot of attacks and probably works better against soft targets or lock him into a artillery or non flying tank to avoid a whole turn of shooting.

No, no AP on either the pistol or knife sadly.

This will all depend on his cost. At 4 CP, it won't be much. If he can dump a couple wounds on something annoying it won't matter if he dies.

At 65 points and being catachan he's awesome.
Deploy turn 1 on an objective with no enemy around or in ruins alone and nuke an enemy unit from anywhere on the board for d3/d6 mortal wounds since it has no range limitation.
Disappear turn 2.
Turn 3 reappear on another objective use another d3/d6 mortal wounds or choose the dual shooting target character ability to nuke a support character with a weak save for 6x 2+ hit, 2+ wound shots and then charge them with another 4x melee atks for good measure. This ability is really only good for targets like astropaths, priests, commissars, primaris or company commander types.

He's good for more mortal wounds without needing range and grabbing objectives. Not an auto take like harker but darn close when they eventually nerf smite.

This was exactly my thoughts as well. Everyone was focusing on his AP and punch when he basically auto smites whatever you want. I know I would love d3 mortal wounds to finish off a pesky flier or baneblade etc etc...

Except he doesn't deal d3 wounds automatically. He has a 50/50 chance of dealing d3 wounds and less if it is a character.

I agree his only drawback is the booby trap ability is -1 roll on characters. Which takes away from his character asasination utility, but since its +1 roll for units of 10 or more (with d6 mortal wounds on a 7+) it's a good ability to take down unit of 10+ terminators/marine/biker equivalents or units with -1 to hit abilities (like flyers) since it's NOT a to hit roll.

Well smite is also not a guaranteed shot ether. and command rerolls can help as much as it does in the psychic phase.

Its also against any target rather than the closest so having the option to throw it against characters directly is nice

and best part is its in the movement phase where rerolls are less used.



edit: wait am i reading it right in that it has no range? it can be any targeted unit? so its less like smite more like a 3 CP orbital bombardment?

This is why in the first turn of the game you target a unit of 10 or more terminator/marine/biker equivilants so that's it's a 3+ roll for d3 mortal wounds (or d6 on 6) or target one of those annoying to shoot units with -1/-2 to hit where the 4+ roll is still better then shooting them. (Reroll stratagem helps).

Then turn 3 if there is another 10+ model count unit either mortal wound them to death or just assinate a support character.

Marbo is actually decent for target annoying units. He is not meant to kill major characters like primarchs. He's 65 points for skillful utility and his ability is only going to get better when smite is permanently nerfed.

If mortal wound spam is your thing then You can still reliably do that well as guard with the experimental smite nerf.
Astropath- smite
Primarus- smite #2
Primarus- mortal wound psychic power

Yes any unit on the board (no range so use marbo to grab objectives and nuke anyone anywhere) even flyers or -1/-2 to hit units and since the roll is NOT a to hit roll it doesn't matter vs marbo ability.
