White Dwarf: More Primaris Inbound

More Primaris Units are on the way in August – The “missing” kits have been spotted!

The first weekend of August is looking to be packed full of Primaris Marines. The full Intercessor Kit and Primaris Hellblasters are going to drop in for Pre-order August 5th and the following week the Inceptors will go up for pre-order. And if the screen cap from iTunes was accurate, that means the weekend of August 5th is going to a jam-packed release date!

Save your pennies. August 5th is going to be a BIG release weekend…

    Some nice poses amongst those models. 45€ for 5 models or 40€ for 3 models, didn’t expect anything less than that considering.

    Not getting any of them of course. I am in no hurry to start a Guilmarine army and I am not adding any to my Ultramarine army as they look way out of place amongst regular marines.

    The week after 5th then seems to be focusing on something else, if they indeed intent to release 10 books before Christmas with a full Death Guard release placed somewhere in the middle.

    • Bakvrad

      The hellblasters come in a pack of ten actually. The text says so

      • Karru

        Edited, thanks for pointing it out, man!

        • Bakvrad

          Which is an awesome price. I love plasma weapons. I already see myself rollin’ one ‘1’ after the other ^^

    • Chris Emmerson

      Where are you getting 45€ for 5 models from? The Intercessors and Hellblasters both come in boxes of 10 for 45€.

  • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

    So I guess the other DG rumors are valid, not until end of year?

    • Malisteen

      Death Guard are the next big release wave after primaris stuff. Generic CSMs and Grey Knights are getting codeces before them, but that’s only because their books don’t seem to be coming with any new model releases.

      • mrt181

        Which is a shame. True scale grey knights would be awesome

        • greenskin

          Primaris marines + GK shoulderpads, weapons & other bits + silver paint=Truscale Grey Knights.

        • Ryan Miller

          All chapters are supposed to have access to primaris marines. When last I checked, GK haven’t been completely absorbed into the Inquisition.

          • el_tigre

            All the chapters that “exist” that is.

        • Malisteen

          I agree. Still, with the accelerated release rate, it’s entirely possible that some of the armies getting codeces without new releases now might be getting new books with releases within the next year or two, a much faster turn around than in the past.

  • Harpo2

    That Inceptor head looks cool. But it does make him looks like a flying wealder.

    • euansmith

      “Ay, Luigi!” or is that a Flying Plumber?

  • MightyOrang

    Pass. I’ll stick to the snap fits that are more reasonably priced.

    • BaronSnakPak

      The ones with only one weapon option? To each their own.

  • zeno666

    GI Joe Marines. So funny 🙂

  • Jack Boland

    once again, god those are awful.

    • Sharkey Tyberos

      I can see why someone could dislike Inceptors but why the other 2? Hellblasters and Intercessors don’t look that different from marines in maximus armour.

      • Jack Boland

        the intercessors are ok, bland adaptions of marines, but ok. Everything else, especially the characters, repulsor, the redemptor, and the inceptors all have this horribly construed toy feel to them. They combine blandness with a lack of creativity and a feeling that they were designed for ten year olds.

        • NNextremNN

          Yeah because the normal Dreadnought looks soooo much better and more realistic than the redemptor.

          • Jack Boland

            yeh it really does? the redemptor is by the far the worst dreadnought. Every single piece of it looks tacked on. Also, I was never a fan of anime, I prefer the grim darkness of the far future to gundam wing.

  • Maciek Kiliszek

    12 bare heads per box? Sounds awesome, hope there are no clones there

    • Karru

      There will be. If they go with the same idea they used with the Reivers, it will have two different sprues copied a few times.

  • Krizzab

    wow someone after 10.000 years noticed that equipping whole marines squads with plasma guns is a a good idead.
    Are the Untersmarine started a no war strike yet? it must be frustrating fighting for the empire during 10.000 with the old bolter while the new ubbersmarine got new shinnies.

    • Cergorach

      Plasmaguns had the nasty habit of exploding, you don’t want whole squads of SM exploding after some sustained fire… These things are saver, only when the Primaris overcharge the thing do they become explosive…

      Also, might have been limited supply, some odd preserverd corpse has been making improved plasmaguns for the last 10,000 years, so there’s now a LARGE supply…

      • Krizzab

        i bet that improvement was a switch “normal/overload” that no techpriest dared to touch cuz he didnt know the letany for his correct activation.

        • Darkcat

          Yep now they have better plasma then tau… Why do i feel they can out shoot tau

  • Shadowstrife

    Great, GW. More space smurfs. Been a slow summer already, and now you give us more marines in August?

    Where are the Death Guard and AOS releases?

    • Darkcat

      GW: why would you collect any other faction then our new space marine primaris? Specially the ULTRAMARINE chapter!

    • 301stFeinminsterArmoured

      It’s only paint.

    • NNextremNN

      OMG they actually release the new models for the new Space Marine Codex that just came out! The sky is falling! How can they? Why don’t they release new Deathguard Models without releasing their Codex first?

      This whole 8th Edition start was about the new Space Marines of course their new models are released first. I wouldn’t be surprised when they get a second codex and another batch of new models late next year before the last of the old factions has a new Codex. What did you expect? This is GW they do what they can to make money.

      But expecting them not to finish until they got all new SM models out is just super unrealistic.
