Yeah... the new Marines aren't really working for me... I'm a retro kind of guy, and the Primaris, even if standardized, needs appropriate vehicles to scale to work into my army...

 

I mean, the Land Raider looks like a darned Rhino when placed right next to these guys, I'll need to buy a FW Spartan just to give them Land Raiders... and what about other vehicles like Land Speeders and Space Marine Bikes? If I use Primaris Space Marines as the staple scale model for my army, then each and every one of those need to be up-scaled too...

 

I don't know about you guys, but that's waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much money and way too much work...

 

So, in looking ahead, I will stay back and hold the Space Marine fort... TO HELL WITH THE PRIMARIS :D

 

As for 8th edition, I'm still going to play, and I do agree with majority here in regards to certain armies being unplayable unless you take the best thing in the book...

For example Tyranids... if you just play standard Tyranids and bypass access to Monstrous Creatures and the Fly-Rants, because you want to play Tyranid Gribbly Hordes... and you play against a Tau army, or even a Space Marine Battle co., chances are you'd be dead on Turn 2... I don't play very often but for me nothing sucks more, than getting your nicely painted army out on the table, ready to play a game, then put them back in the box 15 minutes later after the first shot has been fired... that sucks the life out of enjoying your miniatures... even if you don't go out there to win all your games, you want your models to tell a story at least, some epic struggle or a major event or some stupendous thing or running away in terror... you went to play, not just to win, but to enjoy and maybe have something to talk about afterwards while having some beer and pretzels...

 

What you don't want to have is: Turn 1... I moved my units and shot a few things.... then half my army disappeared due to enemy fire... Turn 2: I managed to get to get to Assault range, but Overwatch annihilated my army... the end...

 

Nobody likes making Battle Reports like that... and nobody would want to read about those too... so the verdict and answer? Kill diversity in your army and use the best thing as well... but then again... are you playing the army that you want, or the army that you need?

Coz I'm pretty sure a hobby is a 'want' thing...

 

unless you have plastic addiction, then it's a need :P

Doesn't scuttlebutt say primaris will get their own oversized vehicles?


I'm not your friend.

Mortarion!


Yeah, I'm looking forward to him. I'd imagine July or August, if June is the new starter set/launch of the new Primaris Marines range.

Also looking forward to seeing if that leak from ages ago was legit.

The Mortarion leak? It was. The scythe's position, shape and details like the ball and the "hook" opposite of the blade gave it away. You can see it easily looking at "Mortarion_8".
