BREAKING NEWS: New Space Marine Reivers Revealed!

Image
I was on the fence about Primaris Space Marines. I felt the Intercessors looked good, but somewhat dull. I thought the Inceptors looked like flying nuns with wimples flying out the back.

Reivers... I think I could happily build an army around these guys. Or maybe even an entire army out of them

I'm actually going to hold fire on a full rules analysis. Judging from the new equipment reveals, I think these are going to be one of the best units in the Space Marine arsenal. I want to give them a proper going over... with maths!

What we have revealed today:

Grav Chutes
Having pinched an idea from the Grey Knights, the above Reiver has added some bits to his power pack which allow him to fly... ish. We don't know what these do beyond giving new deployment options, but it's hardly a stretch to assume this is some kind of deep strike wargear.

Grappling Hooks Hard to say what these will do, but they'll either allow the Reivers to ignore terrain, or they'll do the cool Khar…

Dreadnought Naming Competition!

This is my latest dreadnought to add to my Space Marine Field Police:

The nameless Space Marine Field Police Dreadnought

Blue top lights flashing!

Only the judged and sentenced see his back...

Unlike Judge Dreadnought, he doesn't have a name yet. I'd like it to be somewhat Robocop themed, but have to admit, I've drained my creative genius in coming up with Judge Dreadnought.


This is why I'm a teacher and not an artist...


In the true spirit of the internet, I'm opening this up to the public to help name this law-bot. Something suitably law enforcement themed, and preferably similar to Robocop, but that fits in the 40K universe.


He's a more venerable looking dreadnought, so this may be someone older than Judge Dreadnought. He has the hand shaped power fist, rather than the claw, so perhaps a little more human than the Judge, who is Law incarnate.

The best name will be chosen, and this dreadnought shall forever be known by it, and the winners name held in a place of honour alongside The First Patron.


(Dready McDreadface was taken... I checked.)
