I wish they used other turret than the ludicrously small Repulsor one.

As an aside, im surprised they still didn't reveal the speeder.

Could it be this one?

There is still a way to go until October. We’ll have at least one if not more reveals by that time.

Hatch at the back. Does it have a modest transport capacity?

That would be... nonsensical. Even the Impulsor can only carry six, it's not like we even have many 3-man units and some of those are Gravis (taking 2x space). On the other hand if it could carry six, it would make the Impulsor largely pointless. So I reckon it's probably just a crew hatch.

I like the armamanent options and the fact its an impulsor chassis varient is cool. That twin heavy onslaught is going to be tasty, 24 odd shots!

The only thing that will put me off is going to be the price. The Impulsor is only about £5 cheaper than the Repulsor and a much smaller kit, if this is the same with the Gladiator and Executioner I'm not so sure I'd get it.

 

Nice addition otherwise.

huh, I may have been correct.  9th edition will see the replacement of the remaining squat marine units and then we can finally see the squat marines get...well.. squated.  I didn't think this would happen till 11th, but what is left?  a few additional Impulsor variants, a terminator equivalent, scout equivalent, and speeders.  Then we can truly have a full army that doesn't look like a bunch of guard in heavy armor.

That turret is still awful...but I guess it will now be easier to convert an enclosed impulsor

I really like how double Onslaught variant looks. My favourite Primaris vehicle so far (not couting the Redemptor ofc).

I have plenty of Primaris infantry, but not a single Primaris vehicle (with the exception of the Redemptor) and I can't see myself getting some any time soon either. They just look so dumb that I can't justify getting any, no matter how good they are.

*Sigh*
If only the Gladiators would've had regular tracks...

 

I second, third or whatever number is correct here. Give me tracks or give me death! It is annoying because everything goes well with their tanks imo until you hit the bottom then its "EWWW, Eldar Tech"

 

Just looks daft.

I'm particularly fond of the Valiant for its pure in your face anti-armour firepower. Wickedly aggressive.

nice model, makes sense they'd go with the idea like the rhinos did. I mean, it isn't really "special" per se, but its cool.

There’s plenty of tracked marine tanks. There’s no need to make more tracked kits. Unless they start replacing Primaris marines, we probably won’t see tracked kits.

Adjust your expectations.

Damn this is a nice tank, but come on..... what are we up to 15 new kits/units? GW your killing me here, space it out so I have a hope!

Nice addition otherwise.


I think, given that the kit will probably have all the different turret options, I think it’ll be more likely to be the same price as the Repulsor.

The £50 standard one or the £60 Executioner one? I fear I already know the answer sweat.gif

What’s IFV?


So, impulsors are rhino/Razorback all in one funvees. Repulsor is a land raider, with the executioner being a variant with less transport (we still need a crusade variant? Maybe not need but you know) these bad boys are the predators.....

Do we ever get a vindicator? Maybe.... or maybe the cannon is too much on a grav vehicle.... doubt we see the siege dozer. And I’m thinking we don’t get a whirlwind, it just gets put on the landspeeder replacement.

Next thing we need is proper dreadnaught variants (ironclad and venerable)

I have, I expect all Primaris Tanks to look great except they will ultimately look like recycle food paste put through a sewer grate because they keep using hover plates. So I know anytime we hear "primaris tank" I know to expect a Septic Tank, not a water tank!

 

My issue is purely the lack of tracks, if there was a custom kits to change them into having tracks I would likely not be so fussed because I LIKE the overall look. I HATE the hover part. It works for land speeders and fast units, but not for what I want from my tanks.

 

So again, Primaris Tanks: Until tracked will be ruined and expected to be ruins. They get things right until they go "and now we slap hover plates on this masterpiece as to ensure we ruin it as anything that can be see as weighty, meaty and packing a punch".

 

The Turrets: Amazing. The Sponsons: A little odd but I actually like them overall, certainly a much better design than the predators sponsons (those things snap to a stiff breeze). Hull: Actually like it, unlike the repulsor chassis which feels a little...wonky to me but overall good. Locomotion: ruins it.

Screw it, might even consider looking into how to maybe convert these models to have proper tracks. They still have fly because Cawl gave them rocket boosters for them sick stunts!
