I like him, but I do find the pose a bit weird. Even if its your typical chillaxed, almost posing for a photo look

I love him in concept and the model is much better than the other Gravis captain.

He seems he is just a straight upgrade to the Primaris Captain. Makes me feel like there's not much of a purpose to the Primaris Captain anymore. This guy will likely be just a handful of points more for an extra toughness and wound, and arguably an equal or better gun.

Isn't Gravis supposed to be a 2+ Armor save though?

 

As well as the +1 T, +1 W?

Nope, Gravis was 3+.

Unfortunately this captain looks like he's been caught doing something he shouldn't and his pose is very weird. Pass from me.

Very cool model, but he'll need some unique rules to convince me to invest. I have 5 Primaris Captains already lol.

I kind of like collecting all of the different Captains and Lieutenants. Will definitely add him to the collection.

I really like his design though. Very smug looking. I'd rank him up there with the Primaris Captain with Power Fist and Plasma Pistol.

I thought that was just required by the Codex.

I do like that model Kinda wish it was another LT.

Yeah that's my favourite one of the existing bunch.

will probably get him as like others, i kinda like having the different models for fun, however I've got to admit the pose feels a little.. off? like he's tipping backward

If he has the option to take the long range heavy Bolt rifle I could see him being an option for a backline captain in a castle type list, though he’ll compete with the Phobos captain for that role as well.

I think his main challenge is that in gravis armour he doesn’t have a lot of options for improving his mobility. Something like the RG master of ambush warlord trait is his only method of getting close up that doesn’t involve walking, or I suppose riding in a Repulsor or but people tend to deploy those in the back line and just shoot with them.

I'm assuming that unlike the Captain from Dark Imperium, he's just equipped with a regular, non-MasterCrafted, power sword. The article doesn't say either way, but did anyone hear differently on the preview stream?

That scabbard is in the wrong place for me, does he walk with his legs wide apart so he's not constantly bumping into his scabbard as he walks?

It looks like it's on a leather thong that he could reposition easily to sit behind his hip.

He probably costs more than the regular Primaris Captain. If you are using him to buff your shooting, will you see the benefit of the +1W and T5? Room for both IMO..


Edited by Karhedron, 12 September 2020 - 09:53 PM.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

The pose is a little odd, but it's still solid. It seems like they've taken the "beer belly" criticism of the original gravis models to heart, both in this model and the various others shown.

I didn't hear anything, but when I compare the blade on his picture

 

FiNz3ObvS7qfKEKk.jpg

 

to this Relic Blade from the Vanguard Veteran Squad (at least it's labeled this way in bits stores)

 

Warhammer-40k-Bitz-Space-Marines-Expugna

 

I see similiarities. If I'm not mistaken we haven't seen a Primaris sword with an aquila yet. I guess it's a relic blade, which would be dope. The hilt has a lot more bling than other characters' plain power sword hilts.

It seems to me that if you can rotate his head towards the rifle, it will be a much better pose, like someone who's looking into the battlefield.

 

Other than that he is really cool. I will make him a BT, he has potentials.
