So this was something that was purely an afterthought on my part. But once I began to plan it out I started to get really inspired by the concept of females serving in 40k Space Marine armies.

There's no official GW 40k stat line for female space marines or Primaris space marines that I know of, although I'm sure somewhere online you'll find some fan-made stats for such soldiers.

When I was looking at my finished Primaris army, I just felt it needed a bit more personality. So why not female Primaris! With their helmets off! Awesome!

Thanks to the excellent selection of bits that Kromlech (Bits of War) sells, I was able to piece together a squad of five models that have the feel of space marines, yet also have the addition of the long battle tunics they're wearing, which sets them off nicely from the regular Primaris. Also with the bare female heads I was able to make them obviously female.

The one touch I did add to better unity them visually with the other Primaris was that I gave each one a Primaris helmet which is slung on their belts. With their helmets on of course it would pretty much hide any and all semblance of them being female! Bare-headed was the only way to go.

I also gave them backpacks but instead of going with the usual powerpacks I decided to give them more of an ordinary military feel, as if they were fighting a campaign on a planet with a stable, more earth-like atmosphere and where they could have their helmets off and breath the air. I wanted their backpacks to have more field gear, like blankets and pouches as opposed to just the generic thing that ordinary space marines usually wear on their backs.

I think Kromlech's bits are fantastic. Crisp detail, minimal mold lines and flash, and parts are very versatile and interchangeable with a bit of fiddling and adjusting.

So here's my squad of female Primaris. I can't wait to paint them!:

Cool!

I may need to 'borrow' that idea, just to get some more variety in my Primaris.

A few progress pics.

The models have their shoulder pads in place and are ready to be primed.

Looking good!

Reminds me, I need to build my Hellblaster squad and get painting.
