You'd think a jetbike squad would benefit from a Techmarine more than an Apothecary.

In fact, modelling a double seat bike for both could be a cool project.

My guess is what technically happens is the ones he "saves" are ones that get temporarily knocked off their bikes with minor wounds. Or his bike can gravlock onto another persons to keep bikes close and at same speed while he works.

Would be cool to see some jetbike style apoth backpack in style of fabius's chirugeon that can reach over to next bike though.


Nah, the apoth is there to harvest gene-seed only.
The FNP comes from there being someone around who'll harvest your gene-seed if he thinks you're hurt enough...

Command heads are good. The others…meh. I get what they’re going for, but it’s just too subtle a difference to be worth the price for me.

I'm all about that RT era flair, the Megaman one is my favourie tbh. If they had remade the knightly ones with horizontal slits, I'd be even happier, but I still got those from the old RG kit so they'll have to do

The more I look at these, the more I like them. The subtle tweaks to the design really do it for me.

3 boxes of these gets me two squads worth of RT heads, and the remaining 9 with raven symbols can be filed to look like the other 9 with some effort, those can be like spares or whatever.

I hope tomorrow's LVO reveals include some more plastic infantry to go with these headz

Kind of wish they carried over the flatter chin from the Imperial Space Marine.
I wonder if the reference to something nasty next week is to a Gal Vorbak like upgrade.

Also, I think that’s all 18 Legion’s upgrades shown off.

Hopefully this means more substantial Thursday previews going forward. Well. Character models ideally.

The “something nasty” is probably that chaos assassin they teased in that video from a few weeks back

It may not be a chaos assassin but I’m guessing it will reveal that model

I play Raven Guard and I'm a bit crushed.

I get the lore they're going for, the 'prototype' or whatever, and also knocking on some nostalgia from Rogue Trader days...

But this isn't what I was hoping for, to be honest. I wanted something that evokes the feeling of the Raven Guard Contemptor Dread with the swirling patterns, or something that looks like it actually has some more stealth tech in it, other than being 'very smooth'. Or heck, raven-skulls would have been better.

Nope.

Oh well, that'll save me a lot of time and money at least.

Well, I'm sure it's been long suspected by many of us, but here it is, conclusive proof Kan doesn't understand what jokes are.

Sure, or it's just a cheeky way of saying that for some Raven Guard players it's nice to have a slightly more affordable option to customize Phobos geared Raven Guard models or Primaris in general.

Because the current $27 a pop for 2 beakie helmets from the Raven Guard upgrade set isn't reasonable.
$80 for 20 models you're only taking the heads from is a bit much.

Assuming they stay at $23 like the other Mk VI helmet sets?
You're getting an additional helmet per set, compared to the current RG Mk VI set(which is 9 helmet heads and 1 bare head), and given the repeating nature of the heads it actually can be a feasible way to outfit whole squads in specific, distinguishable patterns.

Means my Phobos Company ends up being quite a bit cheaper in the long run for the beakies. So laugh all you want, but Mark X Beakies are happening curse you!

There's been a lot of chatter these past few weeks about a Horus Heresy Warhammer Quest, so maybe they'll go that route?

Warhammer Quest: Vengeful Spirit? Would be one way of getting an Emperor model out there...

I quite like the RG heads. They’re simple and basic but that fits the legion. I mean I’m not sure they’re worth the £15 more than the plastics or whatever really but I don’t dislike the end result and that holds true for all of them really. The feather crest is cool, and the bare head is good too. They’re much better than I feared after some of the others and them saving them for last.

Just incase you missed them, the old raven guard mk6 head pack is still available incase that's more what you're looking for

The head crest looks like it would cause quite a lot of wind resistance. Would not recommend putting it on one of the new jetbikes...
