I was thinking about getting another Indomitus set after the first for more of the specialist models but now I think I'll wait purely to get some variety in the poses. At the very least I want another to make a different Lieutenant.

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?

The vambrace goes over the standard MK X armor arm. Maybe it is a separate piece and you can just glue it onto a normal intercessor or something?

If you put the holstered pistol on the back of the shield, it improves the model greatly

The vambrace Crusade icon is on the right with the Idomitus set guys so it could be out of shot here on these guys, I also can just make out what could be the icon on the belt of the bolt pistol and sword guy. Having looked at the others they would be pretty easy to remove by the looks of it from the Indomitus guys if it was a problem.

 

I think given that there are honour markings on the decals for the likes of the original Intercessors it wouldn't look out of place. It's a bit like comparing a squad of factory fresh MK 7 to a longer serving unit that has acquired armour parts from other Marks.

 

I think what they are going for is to advance the idea visually that these guys have been around a couple of centuries now and older longer serving Primaris would be more inclined to embelish their armour with honours within the boundaries of their Chapter traditions. They seem to be keen to establish that these guys are more experienced now and are adopting the old ways and bad habits of their Chapters and are no longer the new guys.

That's not a realistic scenario. In a modeling sense you'd have to cut off and swap the arm if you wanted to add the vambrace to a model without one

In a lore sense probably only assault intercessors have the vambrace. I suspect a multipart assault intercessor multipart kit might lack the icon badge.

To be fair, if the loadout is fixed (pistol, sword & board), the only reason for why someone would want more of them consists in the slightly different poses. 

And conversion bits of course, but quite pricey I think.

I hope they'll get some other options like hammers, but they'd be more likely to be shown with them if that was the case.

Honestly, them having no other option that the plasma pistol is kinda better for conversions - means that no matter what other weapon you give them, they can count as MC Power Swords very easily.

I might have to get these even though I've got the Indominus ones coming - I can always find a use for any extra of those helmets they might have included - I guess it's too much to hope for a full set of spares so plain and iconed (skulls/wings)

I dont have it, but it removes a large % of the visual clutter on the model.

I wonder how much of a multipart kit it will be. It honestly looks like the gun holsters are still modeled on; I just can’t zoom in enough on my phone.
The one pose is kinda odd too.
Excited nonetheless. Curious to see how GW does the damage control. I am sure they were waiting to reveal on Saturday since most had already committed to the kit and I for one would have waited for this kit and not got Indomitus, however I’m getting the box at a great deal.

The DA one was posted over a month ago on their facebook page, so I don't think they are too concerned about people seeing much of the multipart kit.

All I want is a power axe option.  I need a primaris model that can properly use the Axe of Medusa (I'm guessing the incoming techmarine will be WS3 like the mini version).

Did we really need an identical version of the set with the same options and roughly the same look?

Fingers crossed that weapon options exist. So far there’s a couple of pistols, so let’s hope for more.

Do you really need to ask?

 

Yes. Yes. A million times yes. 

 

Because a limited edition made to order boxed set that won't be around forever should not be the only place to acquire these new units.

 

Furthermore, locking away a unit into an expensive boxed set is also not something we want to become common.

They're Primaris and at no risk of vanishing into the ether. If any kit needed a more or less identical duplicate, it was the assault intercessors- or at the least, they could have slapped on a few options to justify the kit's existence while they were at it.

 

I mean, let's be honest, the sprues from the boxed set probably aren't going anywhere- they'll be drifting around the hobby for years to come in some form.

Do we need a kit that has the option to pose the models as we want, to have weapon options like plasma pistols, to put on helmetless heads and with separate shoulder pads to put on the pads with sculpted chapter iconografy?

I guess you already know that the reply is YES

A hobby saw and a file would have solved all of your issues without this Primaris wave eating up even more of the release schedule on a kit that doesn't actually add much. Maybe they can bundle it in with the landspeeder and latest Primaris tank so we can get to proper faction updates that much sooner...

Looks like a normal Repulsor to me, with an extra Dark Angels decoration.
