The scout Primaris are a little weird so far, along side Reivers. There seems to be no negative to taking them over Intercessors, unlike scouts which have a lesser save but cost less and have a role. Reivers are still 3+ so they seem to overlap a little too much.
With these new snipers I am trying to figure out why they overlap with Stalker Intercessors especially with the new formation rule that gives them the sniper rule.
I love the models but Primaris overlaps too much and the models need to be separated more. If they aren't going to separate them with armour save I wonder what else they will do.
Interesting thought, Intercessors and Reivers do overlap when you give the the Assault Bolt Rifle/Carbine. However I doubt the Sniper Rifle will require 3CPs, to operate. I am wondering if the sniper rifle and ammo will be useful though. Thinking about I think that only 3 ammo types would be useful.
*warning*Thoery crafting only*
Sniper bolt rifle - heavy 1, Str -, AP -2, Damage 2 - wounds Titanic models on 6+, vehicle or monstrous on 4+, all other models 2+. Can target characters even if not tge closest target.
-Mortal Coil - causes 1 mortal wound instead of normal damage
-Gyro-tracking - ignores penalties to shooting
-Explosive - d3 shots, Str 4, AP -, ignores cover
I think that would round out the usefulness of a Sniper Rifle without overshadowing any other weapon or into DW
territory to much.
