Mazryonh, we actually agree on that, in my first post I mentioned that I would have liked to see him commanding the troops biggrin.png.

And queen_annes_revenge, those are fighting words! I demand a duel at dawn!

If you can show me something cool about the IF, I will concede. As a traitor legion guy, the only loyalists I can get into are the white scars and Dark and Blood angels really. You got a cool model though. I'd buy it if i could figure something to convert him to. maybe a chaos lord.


I’d love to see an alternative Alpharius/Omegon, then field both.

Someone on here did an awesome conversion a while ago. Looked bloody amazing.

When he first came out I wanted to buy 2 and do an AO diorama base, then I saw his price :o

Maybe you'd be happier with getting together for a friendly game of 30k instead?

I'm surprised that FW hasn't put out separate rules for Omegon as well, in his guise as the captain of Alpharius' bodyguard unit. There should also be an option to field both twins together with special rules for the duo too.

Felt I had to share this very nice kitbash of Guilliman. Now this is an alternate pose for Guilliman I would have liked to buy from FW.

At least with differently-posed Primarchs (like the alternate Fulgrim from FW shown earlier in this thread) you can paint them in a different way for the variety.

The Primaris Boltgun and the MKVII helmet just screams 40k to me which makes it look unfitting although of course great custom job.

I'm hoping to build a slightly less dynamic Russ but terrified to chop up an expensive kit. Excited to see how the Khan looks, might use it as a base.

Mark VII was made DURING the Heresy. The Fists were the first to use it en-mass during the Siege of Terra. Also, if you look, Dorn and Guilliman's bolters on their FW models are roughly the size of a Primaris Bolt Rifle.

But they are NOT Primaris Boltguns. And that's the whole point. And I know that MKVII was made during Heresy but it still screams 40k to me.

Don't get me wrong. It looks fantastic.
Absolutely great conversion and even better paintjob but to me it looks too modern. :)

It was never used en masse. The development project was moved to Terra just before the Martian civil war kicked off properly and it was available in very limited numbers to the Loyalist Legions at the Siege, though that may well change once FW get to that stage.

That said, while I agree with Gorgoff that the helmet does look distinctly 40k, there are variations of the MKIV helmet that share similar features. So the use of it can definitely be justified.

As for the bolters, the ones included with the FW models are nowhere near the size of the Primaris bolt rifles. They're only slightly larger than regular bolters of the era, in keeping with the trend of the Primarchs' ranged weapons being relatively small due to the archeotech/their highly artificed nature (as seen on the other models).

That is a decent conversion, but aesthetically I dont like the look of large rifles being pointed one handed. And yeah before anyone says, I'm aware a primarch would be more than capable of doing that blah blah, but it just doesnt look right, it looks too front heavy.

I would if they retain the look of the FW Primarchs. I would not if it means they move to plastic and look like plastic Guilliman.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.
