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.

I question why you care about Mephiston, since you're a Smurf player, but I'm happy you're excited. ^^

That Mephiston looks amazing! Gonna convert one up into a Chaos Lord like the one John Blanche did in the 2nd ed Chaos dex.

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)

 
One thing I wonder, did he lost his plasma pistol? It's nowhere to be seen on art or the model teaser...

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


I really hope your wrong.

He's obviously and quite clearly been primarized. You all saw his foot. They wouldn't keep him old marine and give him primaris boots.

 

Look, if I'm wrong I'll eat that proverbial hat of mine, but i'd be willing to bet money over this at this point.

 

EDIT: A tactical foot, An Intercessors foot, and a Lord of Death foot walk into a bar....

 

gallery_65134_15414_13878.jpg

 

Honestly, not sure what the point was in even making this image. Guess I'm mostly flabbergasted that some people still hold out hope, or think he might have not been primarized, even when the answer is staring everyone in the face? Heck, even before we knew what his foot was like, there were other clues, like his leaked price point etc. And even before that, I don't see GW having given anyone any indication to expect any new loyalist old marine characters outside of HH...

He has a primaris boot and by the look of it, primaris knee.

Its doubtful.

Mephiston is a rare character that it doesnt matter as much with though

Mephiston looks so close to that artwork and to his features from the old model that, even if he has a primaris style foot stuck on under his skirt, his look is going to be very unlike the typical primaris look.  I think model wise he will effectively be Primaris in name only.

Knee and foot, presumably backpack too.

The key difference is his torso follows his classic look, but tbf primaris all have sculpted pectoral-esque muscles anyway.

You're right that he will look at home beside both classic and primaris though.

A proper blending or the styles which I think we have been expecting for a while now.

Good point. Which right now sucks, but is necessary in the long run. If/when we get a Primaris flyer, you bet only tall bois will be allowed in there.

Mephiston will very likely be a Primaris, but I would really like some new lore to go with that.

He's not a normal Marine, he is something more. The Primaris upgrade will likely still work and he is probably more likely to survive it than most, but I wonder if it's as straightforward as that.

Yes, it will be that straight forward.

"Mephiston decided to become a Primaris because they're so much better than normal marines. The procedure was a success and now literally no Blood Angel has any concerns about it. Also the chance of success is still a gamble, but like literally every other named character he came through it fine."

Probably:

Mephiston drank a primaris Marines blood.

And instantly became primaris

Joking. Aside he was probably for it

Well that or he nearly dies again and this how they keep him from dying. I mean the Dark Angels are using the Rubricon as a means of keeping critically injured Astartes alive after all.

 My company inform me that their new primaris brother just don't fit in the safety harnesses. And the Chaplain won't let us ride unless we buckle up.

Probably more likely to be a case of he chooses to cross the rubicon because he has been seeking a way to stabilise his own body. A major plot point for the lord of death is that his power is essentially destroying him because his body cannot contain it.

Perhaps the half godmaker organ that primaris have will be the thing to resolve that thread.

I should have been clearer, I don't mind him being primaris'd, it was the posing I was worried about. In the end i'll probably just use him for a base for kitbashing my own counts-as mephiston or blood angel flavored psyker.

He's not in the original model's pose, he's in the original artwork's pose which is very different.

Considering that Mephiston was one of the first proper character models I bought (Since Tycho mk1 was just a Blood Angel captain technically), I am taking notice. That model looks incredible to me so It's on my to-buy list now. I have neglected the Blood Angel since I stopped collecting them at the end of 2nd edition, this guy will be a tribute to my first 40k army.

I... don't get it. He will look like a jacked up Mephiston that has proper scale for his model and proper presence for what he is supposed to represent. Sounds like a Win-Win to me!
