Wolves as wargear would make us all giddy.

Plus at €25, up from 20 a year ago, for 5, who come in only 2 or 3 parts, the margin on Fenrisian Wolves must be pretty good

Maybe he doesn't have his wolves cause they die saving him from Ghaz giving time for his brothers to pull him to safety.

I feel like that's actually the plot. Rags shows up, fights Ghaz, gets his backside stomped on. Near death, he crosses the Rubicon, then goes back as Super Ragnar and fights to a standstill while something happens off stage that makes Ghaz leave. Wolves win by default.
Hmmm why do I feel like I already read this one before?

Well I have to see these primaris infiltrators with the shoulder mounted weapons. Might have to get this box to convert into my personal wulfen wolflord and his wulfen bloodclaw pack.

Ragnar and new Infiltrators?

giphy.gif
Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

Arguably we already have assault focused Primaris with Incursors and Reivers. It's just no one really likes them as assault choices.

So 6 months until the next Primaris wave which also means the bikes and Land Speeder, I wonder what else this new unit is armed with.

Kinda weird for Meganobz to be there, with the other stuff being new. Even Blood of the Phoenix had two new kits for each side along with the old stuff. It'd be strange, even by GW standards, to not give the Orks another kit in the box if Marines are also getting one. And no, as much as I love him, Makari doesn't really cut it.

 

But I guess there's the possibility that this person, even if correct, didn't get the whole info and what they describe is just part of the box. again, even Blood of the Phoenix had more stuff in it, there could be surprises.

Maybe/hopefully he left out the "new" when describing the meganobz

I would think more is left out if accurate.

10 marines and an HQ would also be too light on the SW side.

Of all the things in the Orks range that need an update, Meganobz are not even close to being one of them.

 

The only thing I can imagine if they're the only unit in the Ork side of the box for whatever reason is them being fancy unique sculpts, or Mega-meganobz, but I doubt that.

Maybe they just cut the bloat and only have the new stuff to keep the box price down. Blood of the Phoenix is still sitting around or parted out for individual sale on the net. Would be a smart move to keep old kits out to move stock.

The only thing I'd want on the meganob front is a way for newer players to get a mega armoured big mek without also buying 2 meganobs that are literally unusable unless you buy another (quite expensive) box of them

Surely that would warrant a separate character box at the higher price characters are these days if there was a new mek sculpt.

Two boxes would be worth it for 5 meganobz and a kff mek.

That said, I don't believe we'll see ghaz in a battle box. He's huuuuuuge.

That said, regardless of what's he in, he's coming. Just need to decide what'll be in his supreme command detachment. (Refuse a full Goff detachment)

Tooth and Claw had a Redemptor in it, and I'd wager Ghaz is about the same size.

 

Yeah Ghaz is a lot more important than a nameless Dread, and it'd be like putting Abaddon or Guilliman in a boxset, but I don't think size is the main factor that'll determine if he's in a boxset or not.

 

Like you said, I guess we'll see.

You make a very fair point :)
