I like how it allows you to build a version of the classic Marshall with axe, combi flamer and the bottom half of the helmet as well as the more usual power sword and plasma pistol.

It doesn't seem to be on the sprue, so... no.

Do you see it on the sprue?

Looks like choice of axe/sword and combi-flamer/plasma pistol.

Lack of helmeted option is sad, but at least there are 2 bare options, and head swaps is the easiest conversion you can do.

Skeleton backpack guy looks easy to omit if people don’t like him.

Independent of anything else I do like seeing Combi weapons finding their way into the Primaris range.

Can't wait for Primaris Combinators, a 10-man unit armed exclusively with Combi-Melta/Plasma/Flamerifles.

I sure hope people omit him. I'd love to pick some up for future conversions. :thumbs-up:

I much prefer this style of combi-weapon where the combi-part is under the bolter.

Always with the negativity.

GW has us talking about Templars again, at the cost of under a dollar worth of plastic and no additional packaging or shipping costs.

Not in the kit, but a Marshall is just a BT Captain, right? So the loadout might be just an addition to the already existing Primaris Captain.

Or it's a mispack and the point was that it's silly to pretend that it's "incompetence".

That kinda stuff happens no matter what company you are. I lost count of how many times I had to deal with Corvus Belli's dumpsterfire of a customer service system for mispacked items. Big ticket items like TAGs even. My Szalamandra didn't include the "tail" of the TAG--a massive piece.

I didn't come on here or their forums and scream about "incompetence".

That model had a combi melta. Unless you mean the Blanche artwork, which did have a combi flamer and axe, but otherwise any resemblance to this model is a stretch at best.

I wonder if Black Templars are gonna remain the only Chapter with Primaris Combi-weapons for the forseeable future.

I suspect so.

If you look at the main SM codex, there are plenty of weapon options faction locked behind certain chapters. Unless there is a new universal kit I would not expect other chapters to be able to field them.

Sucks, but is what it is these days.

I mean Primaris already have an all-Plasma and an all-Melta unit. So i expect an all-Flamer and an all-Combi unit to come either during 9th or 10th.

Love the options, although it's a pity there is no helmet. Would love an updated Chaos Lord in PA kit with a few options like this.

CB ain't exactly a several-hundred-million-Euro-profit-per-year type of company though. You'd think GW would have better quality control.

Funny thing about quality control. Even if you are 99.999% accurate, that means you make a mistake 1 in 100,000 times. I think GW produces enough kits to make the occasional error.

But don't you agree GW should be the only company in the world with 100% quality control. Just think of all the life or death situations where it's critically important to get the correct plastic model kits!

I mean the guy got a free BT marshal and will receive a replacement for his missing miniature.

I would be very happy to be on the receiving end of something like this, even if it is cheap fodder to bash onto GW for some posters.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

It also ignores that one of those companies purposely keeps their employee counts low to avoid being taxed at a higher bracket, per their own public admissions over the years.

There have been a rash of slip-ups in recent years. Off the top of my head:

*The exclusive Ork and Gretchin model got sent to someone by mistake
*The FW Sons of Horus praetor somehow ended up being boxed as "Maloghust the twisted"
*The Marshal showing up in a Grey Knight vs 1k sons set.
*Spare parts from the new slaanesh seekers being sold on ebay
*And then all the leaks that keep happening.

Someone in GW is going to be in trouble. I don't think a lot of this is just free publicity. Sure, you can argue that some of the leaked pics could be from GW, for some reason. But unless GW has someone pretending to get the wrong model, it's pretty crappy move to buy a model and not get the one you wanted.

As a counterpoint, I've been into 40K since 1994 and can remember having a miscast Mordian model in one of the 2nd Ed squad boxes. That model was replaced by the store manager when I returned to the shop.

Even the limited number of Finecast models I bought ( a couple of Creeds for kitbashing and some others) had no problems.

Apart from that, I've had no issues with GW quality control or indeed any other miniature company I'be bought from.

Customer service always seemed very accommodating and cooperative, whenever I had an issue with my order.

So even if there is a problem with your model, a short call will solve the issue. Normally you get to keep your "wrong item" and get a replacement on top.

Apart from the rare sprue miscasts I once got a really weird sprue with all the heads all clipped off the sprue in a zip bag.

It's definitely a weird mispack, but hardly the end of the world.

I'd be curious as to how a new BT Marshall made it anywhere near the packing process for the Hexfire sets, especially as the BT box is coming out, what, 3-4 months after Hexfire? You wouldn't think there'd be production samples near a packing area for a new boxed set, and the time gap between releases means that they probably didn't have the BT stuff in production while Hexfire was getting packed.

Getting a SM or Primaris Librarian in there instead of Crowe would make a bit more sense to me, but then it isn't like I'm saying this having seen the inside of the GW factory and knowing how it is organised. It just seems weird as mispacks go, given when things are due to be released.

Well for one things are done long time ahead time. Like year before release.

We also don't know how much covid(and maybe brexit) delays have strung. We know hexfire was supposed to be out in spring. How much gap between it and BT box was supposed to be originally?
