Asked my FLGS to reserve one for me. Meph is looking like a fun painting project.

The yellow tubing is exactly the kind of thing that takes me out of it and reminds me that GW pushes paint as well. You just know some soulless suit at the top was like “we need to sell more Flash Gitz Yellow. The new hit model has something noticeable in that color or you’re fired.”

Are you serious? Because if you are, I think you should rethink this.
Even if you accept the idea that GW is an evil corporation who does everything to be evil, companies simply don't work that way.

It's a throwback to the old BA mode of painting (and I certainly wouldn't recommend yellow to go with red, personally, but that's another story).

They also used the yellow on the Primaris Librarian model and Tigirius so it seems to be their way of marking out Primaris psykers.

The plasma pistol hand saved the mini for me, but i'm glad that both sides got what they wanted. If I ever pick up the model I still think i'll end up doing some chopping but my focus is in other places right now so that's a ways off.

I do find it hilarious that some people were saying the size of newer marine stuff looks great next to regular humans like Cadians, and then GW upsized the humans so they are the same height as marines again :lol: :lol: :lol:

That is a big plasma pistol. It looks like it has a some revolver-chamber. 

 

And I assume that Mephison has the power of situational awareness, because looking over his shoulder seems harder than for the average marine (and that is saying something).

I feel the same, but replace the Fist with the Sally. Mind you I love the BA, DA and SW primaris lieutenants also.

I see. I am not a fan; they look big enough to be a submachine gun instead of a pistol, with the center-of-mass much too far in front of the hand instead of above it.

Those are the only substantial changes, yes.

He also got the Angels of Death rule (Lemartes and Astorath got it too) instead of just having Shock Assault errata'd in, and he got the proper Chief Librarian keyword

His 5+++ would help with the pistol. I feel like it should have been made a 4+++ but If he doesnt change point cost, he is still decent

Blood Angels 3rd Company Wins 25 Draws 5 Losses 13

Doesn't his 5+++ give him a chance to save himself if his PP overheats. Could be wrong, still wouldn't risk it though regardless.

All primaris plasma weapons, auto bolt rifles and assault bolters, anyway. 

 

aswell as eliminators rifles, redemptor dreadnought weapons and adrax agatones hand flamer. Maybe it´s certain type of weapon or tech that gets this "revolver" part of sorts?

 

Considering Mephs plasma though, it seems to have rail over that part and doesn´t contain that flamer pilot light styled front like we seen on primaris now.
