They cost £30 or £35 at the store birthday, I had a look but passed on it. There was also some metallic dice I didn't fancy paying a bunch of money for.

probably these

There are also two art books available that will provide a feast for the eyes (and the soul – useful with the Soul Wars raging). Like the models, there is one packed with Warhammer 40,000 imagery, focusing on the twisted servants of the Dark Gods, and one for Warhammer Age of Sigmar which gathers lots of images on the theme of Death. Each of them is a hardback tome brimming with gorgeous (if somewhat grisly) art and is a perfect addition to any coffee table.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
Don’t allow the cynical commercialisation of Christmas to obscure its authentic spiritual message about how weird your family is.

Aye, mine opened at 9am (Coventry). A fair few people, maybe 20 odd, there for opening. A brisk trade on the Primaris, less so on the Nighthaunt mini. Managed to get my Lieutenant but you can order one for next week if they run out of the 32 physical copies they had of each miniature.

Yes. Kind of. It is just a Bladegheist Revenant, so it is just a stand in for a model in a unit rather than a character. Maybe a response to the Guardian of Souls with Eternity Glass being a store exclusive too?

Got a nice 500th store pin badge and "last stand" battle plan with my purchase. Just the other things offered as BrookM showed in his post, postcard set free with £50+ purchase etc.

on the forum. Obviously

So came across this FAQ

and the sacred number of Nuffle – terrifying deity of the world of Blood Bowl, is 11.


11 is also the Sacred number of Malal. Nuffle is Malal confirmed

While most of the C’tan are mere shadows of their former selves, it is rumoured that some are waiting in exile for their moment to strike…


Oooh Foreshadowing. I like it.

Well, it was kinda disappointing on my end.

Something they didn't mention on Facebook was that if you spent €120,- you'd only get the backpack, not the art prints. If you spend €180,- you only get a mini and not the prints or backpack. If you want it all you'd have to cough up €240,- which was not mentioned anywhere in the Facebook post.

Not cool, as I grabbed €120,- worth in books and paints, expecting both the prints and the backpack + deckbox, but then was told that the prints were not included. If I'd known that I would've dropped half and just settled for the prints.

The backpack is also amazingly SMALL. More like a fanny pack than an actual backpack.

Didn't get any extra swag either. No pins, no sweatbands or the like. Or maybe next week, that's when they'll be getting the prints, backpacks and event minis.

Be ash and cinder forevermore!

I didn’t get any freebies but the pin badge. To be fair it didn’t look like there was anything in the shop to give away. Perhaps they were all gone.

This is something I don't understand from GW. I mean I love their products I buy a crap tonne every year.

They release some special miniature every once in awhile to try get people in to stores to get products/promote sales etc (granted marketing). Last while it has been primarius (albeit almost same guy every time, omg he has a helmet in a hand, omg he has a plasma pistol, omg he has a powerfist, omg is almost exactly the same as every primarius ever...). Granted I don't like Primarius, but kinda disappointed.

If they actually came out with a good looking model I would buy it no matter what (or go into the store to get it). However, tbh I haven't seen it, primarius are just big marines with less options (especially when have DW nowdays and have all the options, modeling wise).

The nighthaunt mini looks good but if had other products there that are awesome . However, anyone else sick of primarius? I didn't go cause I new would be hectic and tbh, I would only not get some crappy primarius, BFD.

I went to the store but ended up not buying anything,
If im gonna spend that much money on a single plastic mini it have to be something special. Like Lord-Celestant or Lord -Exorcist. And even then I would prefer to buy it in a bundle to get some discount.

Both looks too damn plain for that price imo.

Maybe if nighthaunt was my main army I could do it, just maybe.

In my store the primaris were sold out and the nighthaunt had like at least 50 boxes left.

Generally curious, how many bought the primaris to sell? And how many actually want to keep the plainness? I don't really care (I keep my armies primaris free is good to be, is my rhyming motto), just curious who really likes the plain Jane primaris? If you do that's good. Just curious.

I do mate. Don’t get me wrong I like old marines too and I have two full battle companies of them, and I do like their ostentation.

That being said there’s something about the clean aesthetic of the Primaris that I really enjoy painting; they are almost like a modern reimagining of the original 1987 Space Marines who didn’t have any ornamentation. Back when marines were just psychos and gangers given power armour and some genetic enhancements.

So really they all scratch slightly different itches but I like them all!

Has it got actual rules? Answer is yes. Has it got individual character rules? No. Don't shoot the messenger Sir, your issue is with GW and not me.

All good mate. Stokes for fokes. I did bite the bullet and bought 2x tooth and claw (because when play power with mates the power of intercepters (whatever are the normal marines, was to low for DW to ignore) But I feel dirty. Still have not seen one primaris SE character I have ever liked.

EDIT:
I havent painted them yet so I am still primaris free is place to be for about 4 more days

My issue at this stage is simply your bizarre insistence on speaking in absurd technicalities. The internet has almost infinitely too much of that nowadays.

I see they had 500 facts for 500's days number 1 and 2 should have been the link for rules for the special characters you could buy tbh rest should be the crap they spewed like Nagash is god of death... Who does there marketing should be like Gork and Mork: Green and Yellow (is a link to a painting tutorial that gives a good perspective on to lay down yellow), or like Nagash has risen (is a link that gives 5% off GW products for one day only etc)...

Not sure why there is surprise at the 40k model being Primaris.. I can’t see what else it would ever be.
The real surprise for this and the birthday models were for AoS. It being Not A Stormcast. And then a few people complaining ‘oh more Nighthaunt, why couldn’t it be SCE’
I think we should welcome any time Marines and SCE aren’t the special model or the starter box models etc, as it’s a rare thing to happen really

Still, not a fan of the Primaris. Really dislike the helmet hand, only beaten by the ETB helmet attached to body sculpt.
Ruins conversions that one, this is slightly better, but I need a whole arm, and then a helmet etc

Has anyone gone to their store and had to order a model? Can the model be shipped to home or does it need to be picked up in store? It isn't a huge deal for me, but my GW store is four hours from me and I won't be out this way for two weeks.

I am actually really liking that LT, but I might be giving him a different hand and head. But I like the Stalker Bolt Rifle. It pairs well with a lot of weapons.

As far as I know it's got to be picked up in store, and I've seen people on facebook saying it will be 3-4 weeks before ordered ones arrive

(not sure if that's universal or just in specific countries but if they actually have to make more its not too surprising considering how overstretched their production is at the moment)
