Are those multipart or snapfit/monopose? Either way, lovely models.

Fun to see special weapon squads come back, making it easier to run my HH era marines in 40K. Especially since I have a lot of plasma for them.

Lieutenants are nice to see. 2 wound versions of captains? Probably the best looking models though. Love the helmets mounted on the belts of the bare headed ones. Great touch.

Gravis armor looks to be the Terminator plate matched to Mk X, like how Mk IV has Tartaros, Mk III has Cataphractii, and Indomitus is Mk V on.

Not sure on the assault marines yet. The combined hood and landing struts look cool, but in my mind would work better for a devastator-type unit rather than jump troops. Iffy about the little shields on the bolt pistols either. And they seem to use the Indomitus TDA shoulder pads, not power armor pads like the other squads.

Chaos models look good, but I will be trading those off to a friend who plays chaos. Blight Drone thing looks ace especially.

That is the weak point of the model. Makes him look chubby, like the ancient metal Cadian Lieutenant.

Rumor was that they were snapfit and monopose. There were more Death Guard than this spoiled at Adepticon - so expect more multipart Death Guard kits on their way, including that smiling terminator with the assault canon. My god they look beautiful.

So with unit points on the new Codices will we have to buy the BRB to get the missions? O_o I don't remember seeing any reference to this.

Is it just me or is the GW standard of painting to make faces look as flat and ugly as possible? Seriously someone tell 'eavy metal how to paint faces. Primaris marine paint job just does not look on the same level as those beautiful death guard.

I love the old school plasma guns, I love the blight drone, and I love the incorporation of nurglings into the models. Papa Nurgy would be pleased. Now to get someone to take the primaris marines off my hands....

I'm in love with the design of those new Jump Marines.

The only slight disappointment is the new Terminator armour. I was hoping the new mark would somehow call back to the classic helmet design.

That is indeed the weakest point but I am also not really a fan of the hood - it looks like a cheap knock off psychic hood.

The standard Marines are gorgeous. I love the Lieutenant and Ancient especially. It's nice to see Marines in proper proportions at last, even if we have to swallow some terrible fluff and terrible models (Inceptors) that come alongside them. I hope the Gravis is just a sort of artificer armour type suit for leaders, though, and not a replacement for Terminators.

Sooooo many questions but so awesome. We get a banner bearer!!!

Urgh what chapter to do these guys as. Imperial Fists, Howling Griffons or get some BA heads and pads.

Ill agree I'm not a fan of the Captains belly armour, so is that Terminator armour? Think a new head would make him look so much better.

Not too much a fan of those Assault Marines, I was hoping they were classic choppy choppy version, think its the design of the backpack I am not too fond of.

That Nurgle Lord, my lord.......

Well I know what I am asking for for my birthday.

Edit: Oh snap the captain with his helmet on his belt!! Plasma Squad!!!!!!!!!!

Also wanna try chopping the arms of some of em and giving them Wulfen arms and heads. Try and make em look like the classic Wulfen. Reckon they would look sweet in truescale and guessing the arms will be the right size?

It does look a lot like a psychic hood. The jump restartes have it too. But I think the reason it looks off, and the same reason it gets a pass from me, is that unlike all other terminator marks, the head is clearly both lined up with and above the shoulders, as opposed to far forwards and at the same level like an Ork.

I agree.

As I said the other Primaris are really good - I won't buy them for... reasons... but they are good. It's actually curious that the Gravis and the Inceptor armour (the two new variations) are falling short imo.

Here's hoping the Dreadnought looks awesome so I can actually get a new mini to use!

I don't think the gravis armor is terminator armor. It has a backpack. It has regular marine arms (minus the power fist). The legs just have 2 more armor plates on them. It just looks like fancy artificer armor. Maybe a 2+ save but no deepstrike capabilities.

Holy hell all those miniatures are stunning. I was already splitting a box set, but I need those primaris minis as well so much!

That's it, I'm back as a strictly GW player. The WM/H stuff goes on ebay, I'll box away the Antares stuff.

Artificer is generally considered to be either old relics, for personalized masterworks. Neither of which would work for brand new, mass produced troops. I can Gravis being a mass production "heavy" armor for commanders and specialists.

Are the SM officers on 40mm bases and the lord of contagion on a 50mm?
