40K Deep Thought: The Other Chapter Tactics

We’ve seen the Ultramarines rules, what does that mean for the other major chapters?

~You’re all caught up – onto the next week!

  • Hamish Beer

    “Increasingly, Guilliman looked to the Primaris Space Marines as his first solution. He made no attempt to hide the fact that the days of the older space Marines were numbered.”

    • Foxdonut

      Squat Marines Confirmed.

    • zeno666

      Its quite obvious that GW will let the old space marine miniatures die off on the shelves.
      I’ll give it a couple of years.

      • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

        I think at this stage, it’s just a matter of them clearing out old inventory.

  • Crablezworth

    The aggressors look aggressively bad

    • zeno666

      They look like christmastrees.
      But then again, this company just can’t get that Less Is More.
      Both when it comes to their prices and cluttering details on models.

      • CloakingDonkey

        It’s just because you’re in the States… I learned yesterday that you guys apparently pay 115$ for a Lord of Change, I bought one last month for 65$. On the other hand I pay 130$ for a Woldwrath 😛

        • luke-vdv

          No it’s not. I live in Australia and it costs $190.

          • CloakingDonkey

            same logic applies, does it not? I’m sure both PP and GW are pricey in Australia.

    • Tristan Smith

      The middle guy has that awkward, knees together, bashful child being scolded look doesn’t he?

  • kloosterboer

    I love those aggressors!

    • Herkamer63

      Same here. I love the primaris line in general. If this really is the way of future space marines then bring it on.There are people in our community that have some EXTREMELY unrealistic ideas on how these models should look. are all the models great? i’d argue some need improvements but NOT complete overhauls. besides the first people to usually say when a model(s) is ugly are the ones who are typically jealous because they didn’t come up with it first. so screw the haters. i love the new models coming out

      • Jack Boland

        thats odd

      • davepak

        “screw the haters” – they are not “haters”.

        they are people who don’t want to see the army the have spent thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours painting replaced by “better” marines.

        If gw would have just released the same height ‘true scale” marines, all would be fine.

  • orionburn

    In regards to the Alpha Strike article I hope to see some good statistics come out of the Nova Open. One tournaments result is hardly something to set the standard to, but if going turn one really makes that big of a difference it will be interesting to see.

    • Heinz Fiction

      Not sure if we really need statistics to prove it. A couple of changes in 8th edition increased the value of getting turn 1 significantly, which was very high already…

      • orionburn

        Most everyone I’ve talked to feels going first is huge now and agrees, but having the numbers back it up at least gives some data to prove how unbalanced it is and shut down the “well it’s only been a few weeks/montsh since 8th released” talk. If you can show it with numbers it’s helps speed up the chance of figuring out a fix to the problem.

  • Jack Boland

    Dear sweet jesus, the new marines look horrible.

  • Branahar

    They look like they have been on racks

  • Dennis J. Pechavar

    On a plus note those Xwing ships look good?
