Those Flying Primaris seem really odd both in how they've been modeled and the specific idea. The concept of dropping in a heavy-weapon Marine from high altitude is something that isn't bad in itself, if they had been some sort of massive railgun or similar powerful single-shot weapon then having to use the thrusters to counter the recoil (kinda like the Tau Broadside anchoring themselves in place) then that could have been interesting, but why an autocannon of all things?

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.


Completely agree on the looks of the Suppressors. I don't think they have the Fly keyword, do they? They just drop down and then are stabilised. They're missing the T5 of actual Gravis armour, too.

They should of used the inceptor armor. The bulk would have helped them look less goofy.

Plus they would of looked like primaris Tallgeese.

They will be monopose. That's how releases are these days--torso A fits with leg A and maybe has a specific set of arms that matches.

People need to stop conflating monopose with easy to build or snapfits. This is supposed to be full kits and they made that clear from the outset.

I kind of like the suppressors actually. I mean they are mad, but fun. They’d be spectacularly inaccurate of course. The lieutenant looks decent too.

The infiltrators have some good poses too, but it does look like there are duplicates. This could be because GW were lazy and only built 4 guys, or because they are monopose. Honestly I think it’s the latter. We’ll see at 6.

Go look at the sprues for the Reivers, Hellblasters, or Intercessors.

There are not 10 unique bodies. There's 5. They're doubled sprues. It's the whole reason why we've seen 5 mans for them in Wake the Dead and Tooth+Claw.

But they have the exact same arms and arm poses. That's not something they would show in an instruction unless you only have these models. Intercessors and reivers have a variety of arm and head options when they are multi part.

Did we see the inside of the instruction booklet? Because the Reivers have no Bolt Carbines otherwise, if we go off your logic.
