Warhammer 40,000: Introducing the Primaris Space Marines
Our brothers have arrived!
Praise be to Lord Guilliman, reinforcements are coming!
To be honest, I'm not a big fan of the new marines. The regular marines just seem mundane and kind of a bit meaningless now. What was once special about a Space Marine is no longer special, because now there are Super Special Space Marines that make the normal ones look mundane.
In game you can have Terminators and Veterans in your army and both don´t make the normal ones mundane, they are the backbone of every Space Marine army. The new Space Marines have better stats and a better Bolter but are also more expensive. Lore wise it can happen that over time the normal Space Marines get replaced by the Primaris Space Marines.
Terminators and Veterans are regular marines who earned their status and armour through great deeds.
These Primaris marines are not the same. They are "super marines" from day one. They make the genetically engineered normal marines seem less special, because these guys are genetically enhanced genetically enhanced soldiers.
Terminators and Veterans are regular marines but they still have better stats than normal Marines in game. The Primaris are somewhere between a Terminator and a normal Marine. But put a veteran Primaris in a Terminator armor. Let a Primaris get the experience of a Space Marine captain. He will overshadow the regular Veterans, Teminators and Captains.
Regular Space Marines are no longer the "Emperor's Finest". Regular Space Marines are now the "Emperor's Pretty Okay".
