Played 2 games with a squad of 3.

 

First game against deathguard, they held up pretty well, but nurgle buffs meant they struggled to kill anything even with the amount of attacks they hrew out.

 

Second game against Orks. Managed well against boys mowing down and even held their own against the Nobs with Klaws (Sargeant was down to 2 wounds and had to make 3 saves of 6's which I miraculously made!! The Allfather protects). He held long enough for the assault intercessors and captain plus judiciar to come in and clean up.

 

Definitely best as a fast moving chaff killing unit

Good news indeed! Love the models! When I start building my Primaris line I will be looking forward to using these for sure!

I can't tell you yet how they do on the table.

What I can tell though, is they take an eternity to de-sprue and clean. Some bits have lots of sprue connectors, others are placed on a concave surface, or between small detail.
And as usual, some of the push-to-fit studs will fight you. Took some squeezing and an extra helping of glue to get a seamless final assembly. Only the backpack stud needed to be shortened, it kept the two pieces too far apart.
Be careful when putting the side panels on, they're pretty thin.

The other ETB sickness, smudged detail, appears mercifully light this time. Shoulder guard trim is a returning offender, but can be corrected with a knife.
Boots are unaffected this time, and are quite crisp!

I've noticed outright missing detail caused by the low part count on only one spot; Whichever hull side holds the rear wheel has the area filled in between said wheel and hull. Luckily though, once glued to a base, this is not visible.

Once built, the figure has a nice heft to it, and of course, looks absolutely great!
.... rides so low it'd have trouble crossing speedbumps on a perfectly maintained road, let alone rocks and rubble, but I like to imagine they'd have the good sense to make the suspension adjustable.
