They're talking about the dead Primaris Lieutenant on his base, referring to the meme of there being too many Primaris Lieutenant models available.

 

Only a few more weeks until the full reveal! I'm excited :)

Compare the dude if his foot to the Lieutenant, which is closer to the camera so should appear larger. He looks like he's going to be absolutely massive!

I'd expect the new model to be on par in size with the primaris calgar.

i'd say bigger, since Calgar model is in power armor, Abby's only wear Termi armor.

So Chaos is getting a lot of stuff... Good timing too. whistlingW.gif

 

I have high expectations of Abaddon - what we've seen so far seems spot on! I believe the face will be making or breaking the mini... Probably the release I look forward to the most!

I'm not a Black Legion player, but I'm looking forward to seeing Abby's new sculpt - really hope they do him justice, as I'm not a massive fan of the recent Mortarion and Typhus.

I'm just glad anyway that Chaos are getting some love from GW again - a decent Codex would also be good, thanks..!

1. Terminator armour isn't supposed to make Marines bigger, just bulkier.

2. Calgar is wearing Gravis armour, not just regular power armour.

I dunno, I think it depends on the description. In some books they'll talk about terminators being almost a meter taller than power armored astartes. In the night lords trilogy, most recently.

That never really made sense though unless Terminators have seriously thick boots. ^^

Possibly ETL? laugh.png

 

In regards to new Abaddon: I'm excited. Hopefully he looks properly badass and intimidating. And if he does, maybe I'll use him as the basis for a Chaos Lord of mine.
