Wonder if they will have the ability to take TH, removing the shield for a bolt pistol seems like a downgrade

I think one of the painted Dark Angels bladeguard shown earlier was also from this kit, as it had the scabbard which I haven't seen on any of the indomitus ones.

He's still got the shield. Look at his backpack

Pretty sure that is the multipart kit.

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.

Nice find. I agree it's the multipart kit.
I'm curious about the assault intercessors.

Intercessors have 3 types of bolsters, should assault have 3 types of assault weapons?

Chainswords, eviscerators and power weapons?

I’m most hoping for the ability to leave the holster off the models easily. It’s the only bit of the models I’m not keen on. Anything else would just be a cherry on top :)

Notice the left vambrace does not have the symbol on it, like the boxed set has. I hope that is the crusade symbol, I've been asking for the campaign badge since day 1.

I hope i can build them whit the shield raised in front of the body, like the easy to build ones, dont like so much the "counter balanced technique" in this.

So excited! Bladeguard are my favorite of the new Marines and I can't wait to get more outside of Indomitus.

Also I think this cements us that the squad is indeed locked at 3 veterans per.

Those like nice, and great the sergeant has the plasma pistol option.

 

I wouldn't want to be the teenage mutant ninja turtle cosplayer though if he needed his shield in a hurry. :D

 

This is making it difficult not to make Black Templars.

With any luck it's 6 models to a unit.

One thing I just thought of, if this kit comes with spare sheathed power swords it'll be great source of Sergeant bits and custom Captains.

Awesome. Really hope there’s some 2hand weapon option. Their blades are awesome weapons, but more for the rule of cool and variety.

Why? The Inceptor and Aggressor MPK squads come in threes as well, but they can have up to six in the squad.

Same alternate kit also showed in an earlier photo posted on their facebook. It has at least a different shoulderpad style as well to the indomitus ones. I think the legs here are the same as the UM sergeant.

Interesting. I mean a multipartkit was obviously coming, but its nice to see it nonetheless.

 

 

What do we have here then? Headswaps are an obvious addition, alternate poses, different weapons (well, plasma pistol for sergeant anyway), shield on backpack is pretty neat.

 

as has been noticed, the vambrace icon isn't there (which I still think is Indomitus crusade badge), but the shields still have that overall design... and I think i spy it still hanging from a chain from one of them, so I guess they'll blend together fine with the Indomnitus ones. 

 

Does raise a bit of a concern that while these new units all seem to have the badge, none of the older Primaris ones do, so will they look out of place together?
