Thank God. So special characters will become "Primaris", and in 3-4 years all the Space Marines (In the fluff) will be probably Primaris, and if all the Space Marines are Primaris Marines, they are just Space Marines again, because you have not "Secondaris" old Marines to compare, so the status quo becomes again the same as before, just with Marines being more powerfull in the fluff, bigger in models, and more powerfull in rules.

(Or at least thats my theory)

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.

The rules for vehicles are so good and so bad at the same time! I love the simplification. The vehicle rules for 7th and before were so messy, but fluffy. It makes sense on a charge, but the idea of a vehicle, especially a tracked one, scooting around bumping into soldiers who are "stuck" in CC clubbing it with lasgun buts is ridiculous.

If infantry can at least move away at no penalty in the move phase I can wrap my head around it. Like a lot of the AoS rules, it's fine mechanically but just doesn't make sense narratively. What a 180 from what we have now.

I have just read again the article on the shooting phase and i think that we let a huge cannonball fly just over our heads.

"You also can’t shoot if there is an enemy with 1″ of you. "

That can refer to models, not units.

A unit engaged can still fire with all the models that are not within 1" of the enemy.

Wouldn't be that strange if we go by AoS rules.
This would make a lot of sense actually.

How is that good?

I thought people were worried about the existing space marines being phase out. Doesn't this pretty much guarantee that? Surely if a space marine can just be upgraded to a primaris marine, there would be no reason for the chapter masters and named characters to go through that procedure. I was thinking the existence of the named characters would be one of the few things preventing the elimination of "normal" marines.


EXACTLY! Space Marines will be completely phased out in 2-3 years. Called it! This is the mechanism for which they can justify not selling Space Marine kits anymore.

If it's a hundred years then that price bump is reasonable (almost). You'd get a 300-400% increase in regular prizes between now and then due to inflation.

I like it, makes sense. I never liked how vehicles weren't a threat to infantry that are swarming it. Someone could easily slip under a track, get their arm pinched in a turret run, etc.

They're not necessarily clubbing the tank (or rather stabbing it with their bayonets, this is the Guard after all), but instead sticking their guns in weak spots, stuffing grenades into gun barrels etc.

Well, to be fair, in those other articles, I don't think they mentioned those units in the preview (I didn't read the Chaos Daemons one, so maybe they did talk about them there). However, for Tau, they highlighted one of the more iconic units in their dex to showcase that rule. Possibly because Tau suits -don't like- being in CC. Whereas things like Scourges, DP's, Tzeentchian Daemon stuff, aren't nearly as fethed when that happens to them.

I can see both sides to the argument here, but I'm actually leaning a bit more to the side of the keyword "Fly" handing XV-8's this ability, which will very likely affect drones as well, since we can see they also have that keyword.

I'm not. I just don't see "Fly" allowing you to act normally after Falling Back. Falling Back has a penalty, and I can't imagine all the things that are currently Jump/Jet Pack Infantry, Jetbikes, Skimmers, or Flying Monstrous Creatures/Flyers getting a free out from Combat to keep shooting or to set up new charges that easily.


Not 'seeing it' =/= not being in the game. And for all we know, things that currently are classified as Fliers - FMC's, may have a different bespoke rule that governs that particular movement.

But, you could easily be correct, and that there's another interaction we just haven't seen yet that allows crisis suits that special ability. But based on the wording of the article, and the fact that they specifically mentioned the bespoke rule 'Fly' as what lets them do that, it's easy to make the correlation between that rule, and the ability.

Sometimes, the only truth people understand, comes from the barrel of a gun.

Lasguns may be out of luck vs a landraider, but a 30 dude platoon will sweep an annihilation barge off the field in one turn with FRFSRF even at long range. Hard to see how light vehicles prosper in this environment. Vehicles assaulting - not sure. It appears that vehicles will have NO SPECIAL RULES WHAT SO EVER. So that means they can be easily trapped by infantry, for example. Looks like Tianamon square, all day, every day.

That actually addresses my concern about Primaris marines: If it's a gene therapy booster shot then it ceases to devalue regular marines because they can just take their shots.

If you've dumped an order into a 30 man blob squad to simply remove ONE Anni-Barge, then the Necron player is probably still ahead in that exchange...

I thought people were worried about the existing space marines being phase out. Doesn't this pretty much guarantee that? Surely if a space marine can just be upgraded to a primaris marine, there would be no reason for the chapter masters and named characters to go through that procedure. I was thinking the existence of the named characters would be one of the few things preventing the elimination of "normal" marines.


At this point, I think it is better to have regular marine being phased out than to have two completely distinct kinds of marines

You missed vehicles locked in close combat can't shoot. Melee armies are faster and do more damage.
