BREAKING NEWS: New Space Marine Reivers Revealed!

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…

New Dawn Flotilla: Outcast Shining Spear Prototype

Laptop still dead, but nothing stops the Tabletop Teacher Train*!

Here's a picture of the prototype for my Outcat Shining Spears.

Shining Spear Outcast Warrior

Rather than have traditional Aspect Warriors, I'm making all my specialist troops different factions from the Eldar race. The New Dawn Flotilla is a motely collection of ships that have broken away from the Lugganath Craftworld, in search of a new path for the Eldar to reclaim their future.

These Shining Spears, along with some Warp Spiders, are part of a trophy hunting corsair group, out to hunt the biggest and strongest creatures out there. Why? Because after a few hundred years of floating through space, you'd be bored too.

I particularly like his flaming spear, but absolutely hate the paint on the skin. It's a little too pale. Does anyone have any suggestions on making a more tanned tone?

Until next time!

* Reports, Broken Laptops, Anniversaries, Birthdays and Mother's Day are things that have been known to stop the Tabletop Teacher Train.
