A five man squad, and not in the same kit as Eradicators, apparently.

Heavy bolter mixed in as a weapon option among the heavy bolt rifles, just as the Eradicators can have a multimelta!

Yeah, if the eradicators are 3 man, then this would have to be separate I think.

While we’re on Gravis-armoured Space Marines, check out the multipart kit for the melta-toting Eradicators that made their debut in Indomitus.

 

Aye, pretty certain this makes it clear the two are distinct - especially as an Eradicator squad is x3 men.

 

I'm not a huge fan of Primaris usually, but I've fallen in love with Heavy Intercessors.

I might have to lie down for a bit. The heavy intersecors might be my favorite GW models of all time.

Rules Typo!
There is no heavy auto bolt rifle or heavy stalker rifle in the unit to be replaced by the hellstorm/executor heavy bolter.

That said I need at least one unit of these for my Deathwatch.

I really like the ability to give one a Heavy Bolter. Speaking of which, I like its design. It's not too much of a departure from old H Bolters visually. It's also the perfect size; I think that bolt rifles are a tad too large for the "standard" marine (i.e. Intercessors and such), so i'm pleased that this HB isn't absurdly large.

Hellstorm Bolt rifles all the way! 
Does seem like gibberish at first glance, not really a fan of the data sheet it self. I found it weirdly difficult to read. Probably just my brain damage acting up.

There's an error on that data sheet. The second wargear option mentions a Heavy Stalker Bolt Rifle, which isn't an option.

Yeah, if that actually made it into the book it's a facepalm. At some point, the Heavy Auto Bolt rifle was clearly renamed the Hellstorm Bolt Rifle and the Heavy Stalker Bolt Rifle was renamed the Executor Bolt Rifle. Someone needs a remedial class in "find and replace."

Very curious about cost. These will have to be priced perfectly to not break everything given they are troops.

At least now we know why Wolves and BAs end with wolfy wolfiness and blodied bloodness in their names if those are the kind of work in progress name they use interally...  

  

 

Anyway,i'm kinda hardwired by rules to like anything carrying bolter as an IF but i'll have to think for a bit about them (points will weight heavily obviously).I like the models,that much i can say

7 Power Level for 5, 14 for 6+

 

So they'll be more expensive than the Outriders or Eradicators at base

these look great, I LOVE the walking pose too. Really cool. And look, Gravis armour that looks *good* they seem to have tuned and tweaked it quite nicely with these.

Given that the books where printed some time ago I would suspect that the error is in there.

 

I personally would have been fine with Heavy bolt rile, heavy auto bolt rifle and heavy stalker bolt rifle as it would mirror the normal intercessors in name and make it easier to remember, compared to yet more new names for bolt weapon variants.

That executor heavy bolter is absolutely nuts.  I'd play Imperial Fists just to use these as my troops choice.  Ultras with the ability to go back to Devastator doctrine and also move/fire without penalty will love them too.  Great with Iron Hands too.  T5, 3W and stack with a 5++ from Ferrios and 5+++ from the Chief Apothecary?  Man.

Well no sergeant options will prevent people from adopting them wholesale. Now that Assault Intercessors are getting Hammers and all the options especially.

These look fantastic but along with the news that they're not sharing a kit with the Eradicators, feels like the SM range is bloating out of control.
