"…Two new kits were revealed, and a whole new branch of Primaris marines are set loose on the galaxy. Now, like the Primaris fluff or not, they're here to stay, and I personally am more than willing to embrace fluff changes and not worry too much about the odd minor plot hole, particularly when it results in awesome new miniatures to paint and play with. Now, to me, I have to say that this new bunch of marines feels a little like Age of Sigmar as Sigmar opens up new chambers of stormcast, but like I said, plot holes<awesome new miniatures…."

No they just continue on GW's course for over-the-top model designs and that are expensive … evil grin

For a company as large as GW to thrive, it must continue to find ways to make $. USD

And remember what P.T. Barnum said … evil grin

The plot bothers me very little. A couple of the Primaris models are awkward or just plain goofy, and one of the options for the Rievers is overly fragile. Aside from that, I'll make it work.

31 year player. No interest in the Primaris line. I dont think change is ever bad for the game though.

If I play marines in the future it will be good old MkVI through MKVIII marines, MK6 being my favorites.

@Legion4: A fool and his money are soon parted?
Or the other one?

There's one born every minute … which admittedly works better with the "churn and burn" marketing philosophy GW uses.

I still build my Marines with "Beakie" heads. Nothing else will do.
