Apologies if this is slightly off topic or in the wrong thread but I got a copy of the "Getting started with 40K" magazine (for the free Primaris on the cover) and there a quite a few pics of the new Repulsor tank in it (features in a mini battle report) and it shows it from llots of different angles (including above).

I didn't like it that much in the photos we saw previously but now it's really grown on me, the turret is much smaller than I thought and it looks pretty cool.

Yes, pictures please. :)


Damnation starts with little steps, by arrogantly thinking that you are wiser than our great forbears, by tinkering with truth, by compromising, by departing from the straight and narrow path of the Emperor’s light.

Curious to see more pics of the tank.
At last one more week before we see the intercessors box, what a shame.

Apologies for rubbish photos - never truly appreciated how hard it is to take photos of something in a magazine, feel bad for moaning about shakey camera pics from rimour mongers, lol.

Yep, still like it as much as before. Already thinking about adding it to my list of units to buy eventually. :P


Although I have to admit it isn't as brutally cool as a Landraider.

It looks bigger than a Land Raider.

May be 8 or 12 for an entire squad + character?

Doesn't look bigger than a landraider to me. It's probably just an illusion due it hovering.

AFAIK it's actually the Primaris version of the Razorback. Half of it's size is taken up by the engines at the back. I reckon it will be 5 or 6 Primaris tbh. I have a feeling the chassis will be the equivalent of the Rhino chassis and we will see more options (so Primaris Predator, Primaris Whirlwind etc) on te same chassis.

Could be totally wrong, but that's the feel i get from it

Nope I was totally wrong, lol!!

In the battle report Andy transports 2 x 5 man squads of Intercessors and his Captain so looks like might be 12 capacity.

The turret weapon is also decribed as a Heavy Onslaught Gatling Cannon.

The Repulsor goes toe to toe with the new Nurgle tank too, gonna read the battle report properly later so will let you know if there's anything new to report. smile.png

Love that tank!

The 40k fluff explained to an outsider:

Some space elves got really into drugs and sex and a big scary monster got born that ate them.
A space wizard got beaten up by a guy who said he was his friend but wasn't and now he's on a life support machine and people worship him because he was super awesome.
Now there are giant men with rocket launcher machine guns and 4 hearts and are really super awesome who beat up everything.
Also there's a bunch of aliens but they don't really do anything and aren't as cool as the rocket machine gun super men, so who cares?

Really not sure on the Repulsor yet. Need to see it on the GW site or in person methinks. I like the premise just a touch unsure as of yet...

Lol what makes me laugh is people used to call the Storm Raven a flying Land Raider, yet now we have an actual flying Land Raider!

It's like GW were on the forum and are playing a joke on us.

The repulsor is the answer to the land raider. It was in dark imperium I think that was stated.

I hope the over lord gets a plastic kit.

Bit so far that tank is the star of the show, I hope it can carry everyone

Well flying is a bit much. It's hovering and only a cheap variant of that technology as well even. :D

Apologies, got to read the battle report properly over lunch (although it's a bit thin on details).

I was going by the photos so assumed the marine player had 2 units of Intercessors, but they were actually standard tactical marines.

So in the report he had one unit of Intercessors + Primaris captain that were using the Repulsor as a transport.

So we know it can definitely transport 6 Primaris but can't confirm any more than that.

So like space marine space marines?

It would help add some diversity to the product line I suppose.

There were some rumored stats for the Repulsor from an European toy/game fair a month or two ago that said it can carry 7 Primaris - which would be a min squad, command character, and support character.
