Jeez, they are already releasing cut up boxes of the double Sprue Primaris kits. That is just shameful. Move on, GW! I doubt they will be any bit of a deal compared to the regular double Sprue boxes.


This is... the... fifth time they've tried to sell the primaris squads? Or is it sixth?
Main box, two other cut-down-main boxes, snap fit, actual squad, now half squad. Six.

The sheer quantity of product codes generated by primaris marines has to be irking retailers.

If there is a functional or sane marketing strategy here, I can't see it. Hey, GW, try to sell something to people who don't care about numarines!

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

What an utterly pathetic let down, they could very easily have shoved both that effortless anniversary model and those combat squads into last week's release


But what better way to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of your premiere game with the release of a super-bland bolter Marine and combat-squad boxes of a unit type that's been in the game for 2 months?

So glad they turned Death Guard into a crazy 6-month release window (and made all their releases come out after the global campaign starring Death Guard) just so they could spam endless weeks of trying desperately to get people to care about 8th edition Mary Sue plot armor "We are huge space marines even huger than space marines" Primaris dudes.

Ugh. So annoyed with whoever at GW made these decisions.

there's a bloody point...didn't they already do the 30th anniversary thing with the "imperial space marine"?...why are they now trying to pull out the same occasion again for this shiny new primaris stooge? o_O

He was for the 30th anniversary of the original Imperial Space Marine model, not for 40k as a whole.

ahh yes, that's right...

...that still doesn't mean that a primaris marine veteran sergeant is in any way a fitting tribute to 30 years of 40k...(unless you want to make the cynical obvious joke about 40k being a constant chain of space marine releases )...you'd think they would've come up with something a bit more...meaningful? nostalgic? I dunno...something more than "bolter-dude #1329856"...

When was the Death Guard release first announced?
Feels like its been years.

well, the official death guard trailer video was released on the 23rd of March, so, just over 5 months ago...but there were plenty of rumours prior to that, and I'm sure I first saw the tiny leaked pics of mortarion around this time last year...

(edit) - well, I say that, but the earliest I can find of that leaked mortarion pic is from the 27th of January, so...7 months...hmm...their pics of mortarion get leaked, and then they make us wait a full *7* months before releasing it...is this actually a deliberate ironic trolling punishment for us, 7 being the number of nurgle an all? /dons tinfoil hat

Blame whoever leaked the pictures of the Mortarion render/test model(as that's what was shown)...GW's been in the habit of releasing teasers as a response to leaks.

You really think this is all because of a tiny picture of Mortarion that half the people looking at it didn't think it was real?

They first showed DG at Adepticon as a preview that we now know was for the second half of the year, alongside a similarly timed AoS product. This has all been planned well in advance, and it's what makes the lack of information unpalatable.

At this point I'm almost waiting for GW to come out and be like, "Surprise! Turns out there are no more DG being released! Haha Mortarion is just a greenstuff sculpt that one of our 'Eavy Metal team made. Anyhow, here's a new 7 man box of Primaris marines! You guys love em, right?"

Or they'll announce 6 months of "Secundus Marines" and push DG back to next year.

Maybe that Sept 23rd date wasn't off after all. Assuming they will preview for a week, then pre-orders, then release, minimum we're looking at would be the 16th. Assuming, of course, that they don't buck the trend and reveal everything some time this week.

Dose anyone suppose they will release the codex and new units on the same day? Or will it be the codex first then the units the week after?

It has been pretty obvious for a while that the launch strategy would be the following.
New game July
First faction August
Second faction September.
This has been the launch strategy for every edition of 40k since at least 4th edition.
This time we have got a couple of extra codexes and some AOS stuff in the middle.
When the rather underwhelming special edition mini was announced several weeks ago, they said it would be available for preorder on September 2nd.
A couple of weeks ago GW announced the season of war stuff for AOS. I am expecting that to be the next weeks preorder. At this point I am expecting Death guard to get their first preorders on the 16th.
This is just my guess though.
We will get leaked white dwarf pics in the next couple of days (which I am starting to think will not contain much death guard stuff) and probably some info out of Nova at the weekend. I think we will get a proper preview article sometime this week.

Yeah I'm getting the same. It's just annoying now. I mean, I'm going to buy the crap out of them when they come out but jeez, the wait is kinda grinding pretty hard. Even my brother who collects Primaris is sick of all the Primaris. Currently we are sitting around waiting for the DG to be fully released so we can play again haha, and I'm pretty sure that's how it is for others too.

It feels strange how little attention GW is giving DG, considering that they're the main villains in the current campaign that they aren't even being released for. I totally understood the Primaris release being first and the push for the good guys. But is it really still going a month later?

GW: "Here's a starter set with two new armies who'll kick start this new edition of 40k!"
Us: "Hey they're pretty cool"
GW: "Check out the Primaris though! Look at how cool they are!"
Us: "Yeah they're sweet. Any news on the baddies though?"
GW: "New boxes of Primaris coming! Look!"
Us: "Yeah, they're cool, but what about the people who want the villains in the box you said you'd be supporting as much as the good guys?"
GW: "...yeah they're coming... check out the Primaris though!"
Us: "Its been a month. I... I don't want any more Primaris... Anything on the DG? Like... anything? The campaign that stars them as the villains is over in a week"
GW: *sigh* "Here's a pic look, happy? Anyway, do we have a treat for you... you know those boxes of 10 Primaris marines? WE NOW DO THEM IN BOXES OF 5!!!"
Us: "I can hardly even see half the..."
GW: "And possibly our GRESTEST Primaris sergeant model ever! He has a sword and stuff!"

Why Aye Ya Canny Dakkanaughts!

I'm not even bothered by the release tease, just means I can persuade someone to buy me Morty for Christmas when he finally comes out and hope that we get another Primarch before my birthday as well. I'm determined to not spend my own money on these releases I don't need.

Yeh i would be super excited about primaris if primaris where actually good for my marine army. But sadly space wolves are kinda freaky deaky and primaris are just to bland to offer anything that the wolves dont already have.

I am collecting DG and i will regail you with my sad 40k story now as to why. Sept last year when 40k was doing badly all over my country i decided to swap a whole lot of my mint unused still packaged chaos stuff for xwing models etc. so out went 600+$ worth of chaos stuff 5 rhinos and about 200 figures a massive army for about 200$ worth of xwing. Coudnt bloody give away 40k stuff then..................................................................................................................................Then my donkey-cave mate says 2 months ago hey 40k i hear is awesome lets play again bro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i wanted to cry like a damn sissy girlly girll!!!

However the game is indeed fun again and ive spent over a 1000$ in 2 months god i hate his ass!!!!
