Shock Assault combined with Khorne Bezerkers is going to be hilarious. Glad they're ensuring our Heretic counterparts get that rule too.

6 supplements, 2 known. Are DA, BA & SW some of the others? If so that leaves 1?

The lore on the warsuit makes me laugh; stealth Dreadnought!

And yeah, what’s with all the stubbers?!

Nothing has wowed me in the reveal. It’s good stuff, it’s just not blown my socks off as I was hoping.

Looks like the Scars are getting an upgrade sprue, judging by the trailer.

So much to like but the walker is silly. Stoked for Supplement White Scars and Salamanders!

Kasaro Khan looks a bit similar to the 30k Praetor though. Still badass.

I was waiting for the reveals, and they turned out to be very interesting. At first I wasn't paying to much attention to the Primaris line (I'm all Horus Heresy nowadays), but I like them more with every release.

 

Interesting but not fully unexpected move with the "one Codex to rule them all" approach. 


I used to be a regular Space Marine, just like you. - but then I took the Horus Heresy in the knee...

Love the two characters a lot, will be getting these.

The grav rhino thingy looks ok, but why all those stubbers...

The power loader mech looks... well meh. Again with the stubbers.

The new codex and sups sound interesting, will be seeing how it pans out and how much each sup costs.

Psychic Awakenings voice over talks about faith, so I’d guess the Sisters launch will be a major part of it.

I like some of the design elements but overall the models don’t do much for me, pretty much the same reaction I’ve had to all the Primaris stuff so far.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

The shock assault with Reivers could be nuts as well. With combat blades a squad of 10 gets what, 40 odd attacks?!

I'm liking it for my Ravenwing personally as well.

Probably. If psykers and witches are on the rise, the Sisters will be busy with bolt and flame.

I'm intrigued by the chosen path. I just hope these planned supplements won't be limited to just first founding... I obviously have a dog in the race that everyone with their own chapter tactics get one....

Now this feels like phobos line has gotten to their logical end point and maybe the next wave can give us a heavy lineup... Hopefully sooner than in another 2 years.

Honestly, this was a really great reveal and I enjoyed it.  

 

This for me was honestly the best part though:

 

"That’s not even all – Codex: Space Marines also has extensive rules for Successor Chapter Tactics to support the creation of your own Chapter of Space Marines. Whether you’ve always had a particular theme in mind for your Chapter that you’d like to represent on the battlefield, or simply wish to enhance your favoured play style, you can be your own Chapter Master. Simply pick two Successor Tactics from the long list of awesome choices included in the codex and you’re good to go!"

This was the fourth edition codex and even though I never got to play it (started warhammer when 5th dropped) I've always thought it was the best idea for any codex they've done.

Wait, they nerfed the +1A for WE but now they un-nerfed it for all marines?

Considering the supplements are for Codex: Space Marines, I'm going to guess that Space Wolves and Dark Angels won't be part of them. So that makes it Ultramarines, White Scars, Salamanders, Imperial Fists, Blood Angels Iron Hands*, and Raven Guard.

 

* Edited, got confused while listing the main Chapters.

Yes, I agree. This is freaking brilliant. Especially added to the fact that every first Founding gets a different supplement.

While this won't please the min/max-people, it will surely give us a new view over everything.

I hope every First Founding gets a Primaris Character.

I'd swap Iron Hands for Blood Angels in your list, but yeah.

I'd guess so too. I'm also hoping that a certain sleepy boy in a certain rocky place might be awakened.

I hold judgement until I see what is in the book. Will be interesting to see how the old marines will perform.

Not a fan of Tigurius and the dreadnought.
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.
