  • ectoplasmic gyrator

    Pricing and links… just where would those be lol

    • Rahl

      They never give those on the ”First Look” articles.

      • ectoplasmic gyrator

        Yeah, and this is the “third or fourth look” article we’ve seen about these squads. And there’s a funny expectation for the content to match the title, no?

        Anywho, going off the 140 price tag for the bundle of all three combat squads plus veteran, we can surmise each goes for 35…as does the most underwhelming anniversary model I’ve ever seen.

  • Fergie0044

    Wow, has it really been 30 years of Primaris Intercessors already? How time flies….

    • piglette

      Just pretend they moved to a new scale it’s what I do.

      • ZeeLobby

        If only we could convince everyone, including GW writers, that this was always the case.

  • Commissar Molotov

    Well, that’s eminently skippable. I’ll be eating my veggies and taking good care of myself in the hopes the 50th anniversary miniature won’t suck.

    • Pcm979

      You’ve already given up on the 40th Anniversary? Eh, probably the right call. ­čśë

      • Commissar Molotov

        Ha – you’re right! Forget the veggies, then!

  • Merca84

    No Nurgle for september. My bowels are not pleased.

    • Grenville_Stickwood

      Tune in next week.

    • I_am_Alpharius

      Saturday 9th see the: Codex, Mortarion, Datacard set and a mail order only set of mini called ‘The Plague Brethren’ all going on pre-order for release on the 16th.

      Nothing else of the kits we’ve seen pictures of has a release date in the WD. However, the WD new release pages don’t strictly follow the releases for a month. So one would imagine the remainder of the Nurgle kits will follow on the latter weekends of September.

  • DoctorBored

    Would have been nice to get an alternate Primaris HQ or Elite instead of just an Intercessor Sarge. A different pose for the Captain in Gravis armor would have been great. But no…

    • Spacefrisian

      Or an upgrade sprue with options for Primaris characters .

  • ColonelFazackerley

    So many ancient models need updating. (eg phoenix lords). They make a one-off … space marine … yawn.

    • I_am_Alpharius

      99.99999% of the time it will always be a Space Marine themed model for a anniversary milestone. Should it have been the model they’ve chosen to release for it? Perhaps not. Its nice and all, but not that really that “special”. I would of prefered a special Lieutenant or Ancient model.

    • Valeli

      Agree 100% those other models need updates, and agree 100% that marines get updates beyond far too often, and agree 100% that this particular model is a bit yawn.

      But marines are easily the “franchise” army, and it makes sense that they get the commemorative yearly mini’s as such.

      Might be neat if GW threw together some limited edition phoenix lords for other occasions though… like release Jain Tzaar to coincide with the dates of the actual Biel Tane festival or something…. New shining spear model for Samm Hain.

  • Graham Roden

    Nothing to see here guys! I repeat Nothing to see here guys!

  • SWISSchris

    More 3D-printing lines on the intercessors.

    Also, that is the lowest effort limited edition model I’ve seen GW put out ever.

  • phobosftw

    Holy smokes – look at that anniversity model, Ive been waiting 30 years for a purity seal that long ( no one said this, ever).

    • Spacefrisian

      And a knife, thats rare…On Primaris models.

  • kerouac50

    Note to GW: If you’re going to charge ┬ú20 for a ‘special edition’ mini, don’t release a 5-man squad of the exact same mini, also costing ┬ú20, in the same week.

  • Spacefrisian

    Best model evar…

  • Kiskatona

    That is a nice model. It’s just not special though. I would of expected something a little more…dynamic.

  • Josh Felstead

    Okayyy BolS very funny, come on now, good joke, stop pulling my leg…who at GW paid you to pretend to be excited about that pathetic excuse for a 30th anniversary model?
