In this episode we talk about some newly revealed Warhammer 40k models that will be included in a few new starter sets. First we discuss the new character models for the Primaris Space Marines, a Captain and Librarian. We then talk at length about a new Primaris unit, the Reivers, and how they fit within the Space Marine range as a whole. Finally, we end the episode talking about some new Nurgle models.

Good podcast guys :) While I love the two new characters, the Reivers are a visual travesty to me, much like the weird, tau-esque jump Primaris. I just can't wrap my head around the bad poses, the Immortan Joe masks and the radical shattering of the classical marine aesthetic and silhouette. I'll certainly be converting mine out of regular primaris.ReplyDelete
Yeah, they certainly have some major issues. I hope they release a multipart kit that give more options and the poses are not so odd.Delete
Somehow this one slipped by me! Great as always, good assessment of the new models. The main issue I have with the Reivers is the legs and the mediocre helmets. I am very much on the fence as to try and convert them into scouts but still dont know if it would prove more work than using other components.ReplyDelete
Yeah the legs and helmets are not great... I feel I would just wait a little and see if they release a true multipart kit. If they do, it will be easier to assess whether it is worth using them for converting scouts.Delete
