    Well beauty is not Nurgle's strong suit, though it may be salvagable with a dirtier paintjob. Add all the pus, rust and corrosion to it!

  4. Pre-orders for the new Codex: SM start next week so GW are doing some First Looks over the coming week.

    Apparently the Codex is nearly as big as the 8th Ed. Rulebook at 104 pages, 85 Datasheets, and it has the depth of background on SM GW love doing.


    There are new units, but you will still have the old units and characters of the standard SM forces of the past.
    Chapter-specific special characters will unlock yet more avenues for army building and themed forces.
    Some are even designed to maximise the mix of Primaris and non-Primaris SM units, like combining High Marshal Helbrecht, Chaplain Grimaldus, and Primaris Reivers to create a formidable assault force.


    Chapter Tactics are still in with ones for Ultramarines, White Scars, Imperial Fists (and Crimson Fists), Black Templars, Raven Guard, Salamanders, and Iron Hands. But they work a little bit differently now.
    You need a Battle-forged force to use Chapter Tactics, and they will effect the entire force not just specific units or weapons.


    On top of that is a range of Relics, Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers, and Stratagems.
    There are 26 new Stratagems alone, and will allow you to customise your forces even further. These include general Stratagems and Chapter-specific ones.

    There are 14 Warlord Traits, 6 general ones and 8 Chapter-specific. That includes a Crimson Fist specific Trait, even though they use the Imperial Fists Chapter Tactics.

    There'll be more of these First Looks over the coming days.

    Fucking hell those Aggressors are some ugly ass models, why make those when they are already got the horrid Centurions???

    They and those new jump assault dudes looks kinda cartoony in my opinion, why does GW has to constantly release bigger and uglier Space Marines units??

    SM faction is such a clusterfuck, lorewise and miniature wise. I'm done collecting them.

    Hey man you don't want a squad of Primaris Calgar marines armed with missile pods? that will probably function like Terminators with worse saves/better dakka?

  9. They're in that Gravis armour the Primaris Captain wears, but with heavier weaponry. But not really Heavy weaponry.
