I think Primaris concept is that they are the new reinforcements in armour X, no fancy chapter weapons and just stock troops. With that said Space marines are GW bread and butter so any new commemorative mini that they release has a high chance of being a space marine.

I'm a hobbyist above all, I love conversions, sculpting and all that, so this may sound odd but I actually like that Primaris are simple. I like that so much that in more than 2 decades of this I actually assembled a loyalist space marine and painted it for the first time, before that space marines always have been a quite amateurish miniature concept, basically walking christmas trees. So yes I do like Primaris simplicity and better proportions, few weapons, no decorations and slight differences. Pretty much like Starwars clones thing.

Sold on the commemorative miniature but not going to a GW just for that, the commuting price alone would buy me another miniature and I rather do just that.

I think they're limited pose, limited option Marines in a different scale to all other Marines to fight off the wealth of 3rd party options that exist out there.

Now yes, you're probably right about the fluff reasons behind their lack of equipment options, but I just cannot see any other explanation for the sudden lack of posability and the complete lack of options that Marines have enjoyed for decades than this being the post-Chapterhouse world we inhabit.

I see what you say about the characters, easy build kits and the first starters but Im quite happy with options on the later more expensive individual boxes, for example intercessors box is quite a good sprue kit with good options.

I trhink when he says options, he doesn't mean 3 types of bolt rifle but rather the plethora of non-bolt weapons that regular marines have access too.

Humm thats not really fair as far as poses go. Since its individual separate arms (some quite specific) and heads you can assemble them in much more poses than just 5 mate and you know it.
Weapons just the standard 3 bolters, pistol and knife option, cheeky bit is if you want CC weapons you need to buy a couple chapter conversion sprues.
If the main concern is weapons options not much is going to change soon is it? I mean they will slowly replace the legacy models and thats why you don't see these primaris with all the options now… that would probably upset many legacy collectors.
As for poses Intercessor set lets you build plenty of them even if the main leg set is only 5.

I bet we'll see a new primaris intercessor box / tactical squad box in a few years, with a weapon option or two thrown in and updated rules. You know, so people get to buy it again or be running sub-optimal units.

Yay, something to be used as a slightly more interesting primaris sergeant. Given we all already have a monopose lieutenant with a bolt rifle.
Still gonna buy it becasue I lack self control to vote with my wallet.

Then comes along the frakking Spinosaurus who kills the T-rex, and the movie says "LOVE THIS NOW! HE IS BETTER" But...in your heart, you love the T-rex, who shouldn't have lost to no stupid Spinosaurus. So you hate the movie. And refuse to love the Spinosaurus because it is a hamfisted attempt at taking what you loved, making it TREX +++ and trying to sell you it.

I like the nighthaunt model, and will probably get it. I think the space marine looks pretty boring, but then I think that of space marines in general so this is not surprising for me.

At least with two very generic models coming out we are guaranteed it has nothing to do with any impending Ork release. Maybe the next generic milestone min could be a stormcast figure. There is more than marines and undead in GW inventory. They should celebrate the other factions as well.

Definitely would have preferred a Squat Arbites. Maybe for the 1000th store.

To be honest although I like the Primaris (and the birthday one), it’s just too expensive for me to bother with really for one model

Yep. It looks like they'll be available by buying a certain amount?

That’s how my store did it in July. When you spent however much you got freebies. I didn’t have the option to buy the birthday captain.

The more you spend, the more freebies you receive.

€60,- you get four art prints (two 40k, two Age of Sigmar)
€120,- you get to choose either a 40k bag with deckbox and sleeves or an Age of Sigmar bag with warscroll binder
€180,- you can get one of the two minis, though you can also buy them at €25,- a piece.

Prices may vary depending on local currencies obviously. The art books, painting mat and brush holder are sold separately, no price mentioned yet.

Also, for every €25,- you spend you get one auction credit. Dunno how this works, but three auctions will be held throughout the day.
