I can't tell if the guy with the smoke bomb solves the rumor engine pic, but I'll be surprised if none of them have it.

Sadly, the other Greater Possessed does solve the foot and claw DREs, which isn't surprising. I'm surprised the oblits don't come in units of three, a la Centurions.

Are the two fliers on the right the same sculpt as well? A la the Dark Imperium Inceptors?

Dem Chaos models tho. Blurry but can make out some cool looking poses and details. The obliterators are a good scale, I expected them to be huge but I'm liking that they're not too much bigger than a marine. Not sure I'm a huge fan of the second Greater Possessed but I'll have to see better Rez images. Great to see 10 infiltrators too.

Hmm... I'll think I'll model my Suppressors standing on ground. Inceptors looked fine in the air, these, not so much.

Also, why isn't the Helix Adept in white? Aren't they basically junior Apothecaries?

Yeah. Airborne Supressors look a bit daft.

From the name of the weapon, the Autocannon may be recoilless, as ‘Accelerator’ suggest to me some kind of rail tech? Gravitic stuffs.

It's another heresy throwback. The Sicaran tank uses accelerator autocannons.

Every post you make starts with you "Nuur! You are wrong!". It's tiresome.
I mean, you *were* wrong. Would you prefer a little preamble before it gets pointed out?

 Irbis wrote:
What are Intercessors for 200? Or vehicles and captains/lieutenants for that matter?
Oh yes, you are correct. They have a third bolter. Hard to tell between three things that are all just slightly different.
No different than the Hellblasters then. At least the Intercessors all get weapon changes, unlike Tacticals. Sure, the Tacticals can have a single different weapon per 5 of them, but that's still at least 3 guys with no choice.

Except this is not a starter set so it makes no sense for GW to make new ETB kits to sell for a month or so. These will be full kits if Infiltrators are any indication.
Based on what? They put out ETB Bigger Dread and Not-Terminators, what's to stop them from doing so here? And everything we've seen indicates that these are starterset minis and not full kits.
I'd be inclined to agree these will be just like the DI ones. Not *quite* ETB (still need glue, no slotted bases), but monopose, most likely - that's not to say they probably can't be converted somewhere, but just that they'll be more like the DI Marines than the ones you might get in the Forgebane, Kill Team, or Tooth and Claw.

I think it's completely likely they might make ETB kits of some of these in the future (most likely Infiltrators and Eliminators), but will probably be multipart sculpts in the future - perhaps alongside a Primaris Marines Codex?

As far as this goes, I think Eliminators might be one of the first actual mono-loadout units, or they might later get some kind of other snipers. Suppressors I can see getting something like onslaught gatlings, or maybe even las-talons. Eliminators might get some options for things a la stalker bolt rifles and auto bolt rifles.

Indeed.

Unless they don’t in fact have Jump Packs, and the Autocannon have serious recoil?

True that. Or the other stompy leg.

Guess the rumour we only get Abaddon and Termies after isn’t looking particularly well informed (not knocking the sharing poster. They only provided word of a rumour, not the rumour itself)

There are some nice looking minis in here but there is not enough in the box to float my boat thankfully so I can give this a miss, hopefully there will be more down the line.

Middle left chaos marine has chain axe.
And the auto cannon on the other side.
Interesting that they're mostly set up as pistol/ccw.
Also interesting that they're collectively tagged daemonkin...
Not sure why that would be true for generic CSM


Really don't like several of the primaris poses- some are just goofy (flyers and the guy contorting next to the commander) but many of the rest are just generic downward slanted gun pose.

They're bad enough to change mild interest in the box to not interested.

Well there definitely is.
As Abaddon is coming.
As to anything with him though..

But yeah some unsolved bits that are likely terminators.

I said all along there wouldn’t be Possessed itself (as I feel the kit fits the current theme fine anyway), and looks like that will indeed be the case.

So yeah I could see just Abaddon and Termies

Oh my GOODNESS those suppressors are hilarious. At this point I have to believe that there is someone within the design team of primaris marines trying to sabotage them by making purposefully comical specialist units.

Like there's one insufferably douchey hyper-realist die hard Call of Duty fan deisgning the intercessors and reivers and eliminators, and the other guy they've assigned to the project just keeps coming up with the silliest looking designs possible so he can shove them side by side together in the same box.

"BRO! Bro, I came up with the most KILLER design for this bad-ass sniper unit they are going to have sights and goggles and camo cloaks and they are going to look so fething AWESOME, I just need you to make them a commander dude, someone awesome and subtle and sneaky looking."

"Oh yeah, Chad, don't worry, I've got the design all figured out...."

They’ve already been quite blatant in suggesting there’s more than this one box being teased...

God those flying firemen are awful. No way I'm mounting mine that way.

Now I have to figure out my path forward. I don't know if Deathwatch will have access to these guys, but I could add them to my Dark Angels or finally start a pure Primaris force with my other extras that I have lying around.
