40K: New Red Scorpions, Space Wolves & Primaris Super-Heavy Pics

Games Workshop teases some more miniatures coming down the road!

A few weeks back the Warhammer Community team showed off the new Space Marine Primaris Super Heavy Tank: The Astraeus.

Now we’re getting a look a the model without any paint on it and we’re getting a better idea of exactly how massive this vehicle is shaping up to be! These come to the community via Tony Cottrell, head of Forge World on Twitch:

New Primaris Super-heavy Tank

On top of those sweet new pics, we’re getting a look at some up coming new models that will be joining the Red Scorpions and the Space Wolves as well.

New Red Scorpions

New Horus Heresy Space Wolf

Also Tony Cottrell described the new Horus Heresy rulebook as:

  • 200+ pages
  • Warhammer 40k Version 7.1 (intriguing…)

The book is apparently at the printers as well. It won’t be long now…

How about the SIZE of the Astraeus Super-Heavy Tank?!

  • Pointed Stick

    is that dread the new Crab Collin?

    • I_am_Alpharius

      Yep Captain Culln has been given a new pair of boots…..and legs, body, arms…

  • Kritarion

    The Dread looks like a cheap knockoff

  • David Mayfield

    REALLY hoping for an Iron Hands named character that’s not Sons of Medusa in the FW book! (for 40k that is)

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      Sons of Medusa were a big part of the Badab War, which is why they get so much love.

  • SilentPony

    Who the heck gives a chainaxe to a terminator in 30k?!

    • Red_Five_Standing_By

      It is the cheapest AP 2 melee weapon termies have access to. Also, it looks like it should be super effective, lol.

      • SilentPony

        No you’re thinking of a power axe. Chain axe is just AP4

        • Red_Five_Standing_By

          Oh crap, I am.

          WHY would you EVER pick a Chain Axe for a Terminator!?

          • ZeeLobby

            Cause it’s bada$$!

          • SilentPony

            I mean it looks badbutt, sure. But gameplay wise, terminators come stock with a power sword, and that’s simply better in every way.

          • ZeeLobby

            Yeah. Well. It wouldn’t be a GW game without pointless options.

          • LordKrungharr

            It must be a frost-chain-axe. Like putting chains on tires in the snowy mountains.

        • Rush Darling

          Rule of cool, man. And for that look on your opponents face when he realises just how absurd you are.

        • Chardun

          Frost weapons look like chain weapons, at least the old models did.

    • frank

      Space wolves frost weapons for some reason are frequently done up as chain weapons. was strange in third and not really less weird now. maybe the teeth make it more space wolves i duno..

      • SilentPony

        Yeah that could be it. I never really liked that look either. Big fan of the huge chunk of magic ice attached to a handle. A better made chainsword seems like something the Imperium should be mass producing for every single Space marine.

        • frank

          Does seem weird to have their artificers making chainsaw weapons.

  • ZeeLobby

    Tank just looks so un-40K to me. Would have to line it up next to some sneaker tanks. Reminds me of like dropzone commander.

    • WhenDidVicesBecomeVirtues

      Definitely more Star Wars especially looking at the engines from the rear. I feared it when I first saw 8th, they are going far more generic scifi than scifi medieval.

      • ZeeLobby

        Wow. Yeah. I didn’t think star wars, but that’s kinda scary. Yeah, 40K always had that awkward form over function.

    • SWISSchris

      Thing it looks most like? The original Eldar Tempest grav tank from Epic. WTF are GW doing to our Space Marines…

      • ZeeLobby

        Wow. Good catch. I had forgot all about that tank. Man I miss Epic…

        • SWISSchris

          For once I am REALLY glad there are no new Eldar models with this codex release. If primaris are how the Marines have been updated I think I can deal with our old Eldar range for quite a while longer; i need some more walkers and grav tanks so glad to see they’re not being updated just yet : )

          And yeah Epic was so cool, can still buy the models online second hand but it can be quite expensive.

    Tony Cottrell looks like he’s seen some disturbing things in that pic.
