What's a vanguard? Is that different from a vanguard veteran? Is that from a book or something?

Eliminator? Sniper riever? Like with a legit sniper or at least the option for a sniper and maybe higher output if on the move?

The obliterator looks like a helbrute legs and arms with a split and extended terminator torso and a bunch of guns glued to it.

I hope it is a new box set; I guessed it might be a few days ago in the rumour engine thread. I love the new snipers. More primaris reveals, please!

The sisters stuff as ever is great. Need to start saving a mountain of cash for them!

Where is Sete? so we can complain that there isn't any melee Primaris still. I love all the new models but please GW give us some melee Primaris with proper power/frost weapon and shields....

I can't seem to find that Abaddon teaser people are talking about? Would a kind soul be able to help out? - Thanks.

"Shadowspear is a new battlebox. Like Forgebane, Tooth and Claw and Wake the Dead, you’ll find two armies, ready to fight. But there’s a twist – every single model in the box is a brand-new sculpt. Inside, you’ll find the Chaos miniatures you’ve always wanted, updated and adorned with dark and gothic detail, and pitted against them are the first of the Primaris Vanguard Space Marines."

Yes. It's a new box set, says right there in the article :lol:

So in those other mentioned boxes are they multipart kits or monopose? (I'm aware the modern multipart kits are pretty monopose)

i really like the new librarian! i think he looks awesome! much more than the og primaris libby. i think he could easily be ran as a standard libby too. his armor doesnt seem to be too deviant. Primaris Ezekiel anyone?

Even though I'm not 100% sold on the art, I'm really glad to see the Sarum pattern grille come back to Space Marines. Mark IV/Mark X style helmets are great, but it's not the iconic Space Marine look.

If they end up being multipart kits I'll get one of those shadowspear things since I have a loyalist force and a chaos force. Maybe if I got enough I'll make chosen or something.

It looks like the primaris are going to come out like the stormcast have, in chambers. Recon this time, maybe heavy and assault to come? Could be spread out over years though!

The return of the iconic space marine helm is welcome and gives me more hope for an eventual revamped terminator.


Most awesome would be if terminators are in this box after the scouts set up a teleport beacon...

Worth setting the alarm early for!

Man the ultimate combi weapon type unit would be sniper rifles with Bolters (...or shotguns) underneath.

So do we think this is just a new Oblit model, or a whole new unit?

Ah, then we can have 2 useless weapons at the same time! :D

The New Primaris units strike me as similar to the Recon and Seeker Specialist of the old space marine legions.... Maybe will get more analogous units in the future...

Scouts are dead... Long live the scouts.

Glad I got 3 of the Christmas boxes. Looks like I'll be grabbing some vanguard primaris.

Amusingly the box looks very in favour of chaos for once. Can't see a bunch of scouts taking on oblis, crawly weird thing, possessed and standard marines. They don't seem to have the power. Unless they play "that" dirty.

Regardless I think they all look awesome. Look forward to seeing full contents confirmed

They dodged that question at the seminar. My expectation is that they are going to be the same multipart kits that will be sold on their own later - since it’s a battlebox and not a new starter set it’s not going to be an evergreen item so won’t have sprues dedicated to it.

Just for the record, it looks like French Wargame Studio (french rumor) was right.

I am disappointed for my Black Templars. I expected close combat primaris, and we get sneaky primaris instead. I’ll just have to wait for the next wave of primaris I guess.

On the other hand, I’ll buy the box anyway for these great CSM, and just convert the primaris.

I like the vanguard models quite a bit from an out of BT-mindset point of view. 

 

The Chaos is spot on in every regard. Maybe i'll get the box and paint the vanguard in CF colours

What a fantastic set of reveals... Love the new Primaris and the new Black Legion stuff is seriously tempting and I don't even play Black Legion.

Will be interesting to see what else they include on the Primaris side in Shadowspear as I seriously doubt it will just be the Libby and Eliminators.

Well, new Primaris. I'm shocked. They look good but I hold judgement until we know what they can do. I seriously hope they do not replace sniper scouts.

The Chaos stuff looks really great. Happy for you heretics!
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.

Excellent models all around, though I am not sold on the Obliterators; the fact that all their weapons are part of their armor is in my opinion an improvement (I always found the idea of warping someone's hand into a complicated plasma cannon silly), I do not like the amount of skin showing in between the armor plates: It reminds me of a WWF wrestler. But perhaps they would look better if the skin is painted as warped armor instead.
 
But I assume that this also means the old-style marines will fade away due to lack of support. Ever new Space Marine release is about Primaris these days.


Uhm yeah, since they are building an entire new range...

The New Primaris units strike me as similar to the Recon and Seeker Specialist of the old space marine legions.... Maybe will get more analogous units in the future...


I am 99% sure the Primaris are organized and equipped by Guilliman based on the old Legions.

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?

Winners for me are the Librarian and the Oblits.

Not sure about anything else, I think there is so much detail on the chaos marines it almost just blurs them into a mess. Probably just need to see them in person though.

The Primaris snipers look awful imo but could just be the blue ;)

Obvs excited for the Primaris Lt. Too

If the Primaris releases are following the pattern set by the Stormcast, I wonder if the Extremis wave will be heavy armour? E.g. more Primaris vehicles?

“Sacrosanct” Primaris Grey Knights would seem logical.

But the really pressing question is...

...will Vanguard Primaris get the cute pets?

(Surely at some point in 10,000 years of tinkering with the Primaris process, Cawl would have tried it out on a canid?)
