Ok, so we have 3 versions of a tank, a transport, melee, terminators, special weapons and stock troopers, scouts, bikes, dreads, a speeder (though one with wheels), a variety of characters, tech marine, chaplain, apothecary, librarian, standard bearer and some new characters to boot.

Some named characters have gotten the primaris treatment, others are going to be on the way (you all know it).

So besides a gunship, what else is left for primaris to have everything and old marines to get squatted?


These are my opinions. This is how I feel. Others may feel differently. This needs to be stated for some reason.

Flyers, assault with jetpacks, and maybe a new dreadnought because two is not enough.

I don't think Old Marines getting squatted will depend on Primaris Marines achieving some benchmark on units/models available.

It'll more likely be a function of store logistics, old-marine sales numbers, convenience of timing (change from 9th to 10 edition? Or 10th to 11th?), etc..

I suppose you could make a argument for a primaris champion. But really, it's just going to be another single pack character.

They are close to not needing anything more.

The real point is, if they stop releasing primaris stuff and focus on other factions more, with a less frantic release schedule, will shareholders be happy ?

This!

The problem is, it's not a question of "what's left" or "what's needed".

GW needs to continue releasing Marines to keep their numbers up. They'll always be furiously working on new ideas and concepts to release. And if they ever genuinely run out, Cawl will roll out the next generation of Pri-Primaris or whatever and the cycle starts over.

What haven't Primaris units already duplicated from old Marines?

Whirlwind, Vindicator, jump assault troops, shooty veterans, Centurians, Thunderfire...

Don't worry. Shortly after everything from the old SM roster gets primarized GW will launch the upgraded versions of primaris with 3W base, an entire new line of models.

Perhaps they'll just focus on specific chapters releasing unique primaris units like primaris wulfen, TWC, death company, death/raven wing, etc...

GW can't stop releasing new marines, especially if people keep buying them like there is no tomorrow.

multiple terminator variants, more dreadaughts - there are not enough variants yet, and flyers yes

in actuality, lots of characters are yet to be primarisified, for now. specialist units of non-ultramarines as well

We've seen the speeder coming, you then have the drop whirlwind bunker thing, gun turret.

still "need" a drop pod, flyer, terminator equivalent (so Gravis with teleport capabilities), jump pack assault, hmm that's about it.

There's an argument to be made that Aggressors are more Primaris Cents than Terminators.

That's how I always saw it, but given the OP I wasn't sure if I had missed something or there was otherwise reason to believe Aggressors = Primaris Terminators.

The real question is, what are they going to call the Primaris-compared-to-Primaris marines?

Prime is already used, so they need to go higher. I am the Alpha & the Omega is about as high as it gets.

My guess is a combination of Alpha and Primaris.

Alpharis doesn't quite roll off the tongue...

a bit more at the end would help, maybe a "yuh" sound.

Alpharius marines.

They could still do jetbikes and jump packs, and there are plenty of Chapter-specific kits they could do.

In theory every model can be made into primaris.

Prinaris landraider and heavy weapon teams. Blood claws, thunderwolves, sanguary guard, terminators. Every named and unamed character. Jump pack primaris. Whirldwind primaris. All sorts of flyes primaris.

I am a dyslectic, so bear with me.

Drop Pods and a gunship were the first things that came to my mind.

I wonder if the drop bunker thing will have an alternate troop carrier build?

Artillery hover tanks, Vindicare and Whirlwind replacements are the other biggie. Maybe an even bigger baneblade-sized Larnd Raider replacement?

If it's Baneblade-sized I don't think it'd be the Land Raider replacement. And they already have a Baneblade-sized thing in the Astraeus.

I am sure we will see all of the following sooner or later, as well as chapter specific kits.

Actual heavy weapons on infantry - think Eradicators with more options.

Proper heavy CC infantry (Assault Terminator equivalents).

CC jump infantry.

More variants for Dreadnoughts.

More variants for light vehicles - variations of the bike and quad concepts.

Proper Primaris flyers.

Drop Pods are a glaring hole I can't see them squatting without giving them to Prinaris. But it could literally just end up being the current drop pods working with Primaris. It isn't like the physical capacity being too small has ever stopped vehicle models before.

Consider; Games Workshop rules not so much games but as toolboxes for players to craft an experience from, and open/narrative/matched play just examples of how things can be put together.

We already know that the new CSM line isn't Primarisified. They released new CSM, Havocs, and Terminators recently, which fit with the design choices already established by Thousand Sons and Death Guard (and perhaps even Raptors, which could be seen as the first of the new Chaos line.) I think we can expect to see Cult Marines and Cult Terminators for World Eaters and Emperor's children, and likely more new undivided units like possessed, more daemon engines, and probably bikers, maybe even chosen.

The Chaos model line is going in a good direction, and I hope to see updates to it continue. Their problem is their rules.

Abaddon wants a counter for Primaris, at the very least, and tasked Fabius Bile with coming up with one. On the basis that they're superior in every way that matters, even to the VotLW.

Primaris whirlwind seems superceded by the missile drop bunker.

Primaris coming out of drop pods are in the Indomitus novel (including modified drop pod for the Outrider bikes)
More characters are certainly coming. Truthfully, they can run this train all the way into the ground. I figured they would call a break on it, pause for breath, but they seem to be accelerating instead.
