Looking closely at Mephiston trailer, it appear that, as it can be expected, he is in Primaris form. The detail that betray this, more than the torso size, are the boots, whose design match those of Tigurius.

 

As for the Chaos Sorcerer and the Sisters of Battle tanks, they are all great models. (The same statement apply for the AOS miniatures.)

Mephiston may well be primaris but it appears he is getting VERY faithful reproduction. Which is nice

Mephiston is Primarisized. His boots have the angled armor all Primaris have and old marines don’t.

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.

Deimos Rhino frame, Mephiston as a Primaris, and an ace new Chaos sorcerer? I'm satisfied!

How is Mephiston deemed to be a new character? Aren't they meaning new model.

Also does it mean book 3 comes out on Nov 30?

I think it means the 30th will be the preview of the model and psychic awakening p3.

Or is he wearing a kilt oO

 

EDIT: Oh thats the front ohmy.png Why does Mephiston wear his cloak on his front? Is that a thing?

A more powerful, "Abaddon-level" Mephiston? Can't wait.

The Sorc is a great model.

The Sisters tanks are... Fantastic! This overly gothic, ostentatious, religious look is so well suited to Sisters. They are going to be so distinct from the Astartes.

Don't think there's any indication he'll get that much of a boost.

6 wounds and 5 attacks base seems a given though.

 

Maybe a new special rule if they're feeling generous, otherwise probably just the same as he is now.

It's gonna be interesting to see how they do the stat line.  But if they do the typical +1t, +1w, +1a thing for Primaris?  Mephiston just became a Mini-Primarch.  Especially combined with already being an amazing Psyker and however they model that being changed!  But even if that stays the same him going t6 is gonna be terrifying.

only +1 W and A, the +1 T comes from Gravis, which he doesn't have.

so M7" WS2+ BS2+ S5 T5 W6 A5 Ld10 Sv2+ is my guess.

Other primaris characters haven't changed too much beyond the basic stat boosts, I don't imagine Mephiston will either. Although perhaps, if they're looking back at how he was in 2e (based on the art its based on) maybe he'll get an invulnerable save back. Or perhaps he'll get some kind of blood drinking rule back like he had (because the pose has him wiping his face, same as the art)

He had an iconic rule Transfixing gaze - btb models take test if fail - become WS1 model (so in 8th edition it could look like "on roll 4+ (5+ if character)  btb model (other than vehicle) that targets Mephiston hits only on unmodified 6 to hit roll" 

It would make him more resilient in CC without invuln save
