Roboute Guilliman and his Primaris Space Marines are here to reinforce their Brother Space Marine Chapters with the Ultima Founding!
Games Workshop is back with more background and lore for the upcoming 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000. This are looking pretty rough for a lot of the Galaxy. A Giant Warp-scar has split the Galaxy in half. Many of the chapters have been devastated but are still fighting tooth and bolter-shell to hang on.
Enter the returned Primarch Roboute Guilliman and with him, a glimmer of hope in the form of the new Primaris Space Marines. That is the current state of things in a nutshell for the Imperium. But where did these new Super Super-Humans come from and what are Guilliman’s plan for them? That’s what we’re here to find out:
“It is not just as reinforcements to existing Chapters though. Guilliman has also ordered the creation of a host of new Chapters, the Ultima Founding, composed entirely of Primaris Space Marines. The warriors of these new Chapters were created entirely using the new processes discovered by Belisarius Cawl and established with all the necessary weapons, armour and equipment that they’ll need to conduct their defence of the Imperium.
These Chapter’s still trace their genetic lineage back to the gene-seed of the First Founding, and scions of all nine loyalists Legions emerged from the vaults beneath the red planet. They benefit from three additional organs and larger size, but it still remains to be seen if Cawl was able to successfully stabilise any of the known genetic deviations or impart any additional resistance to the effects of Chaos.”
That’s right folks – it’s a brand new founding which means NEW chapters of Space Marine. These new chapters are entirely composed of Primaris Space Marines as well. Given new home worlds to defend the Imperium from the threats in the Great Rift now is your chance to create your OWN Ultima Founding Chapter:
It doesn’t stop there either – you can even create your personal chapter if you are feeling so inclined. And Games Workshop has a new way for you to do just that:
I like some of the new color schemes and while I’ve never felt the urge to create my own chapter I know some folks get really into that – so have fun with the new possibilities!
Are you going to go with an “OG” Chapter or are you going to create your own?
