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…

The Long Plot of the Duardin Reveal Part 2

So let's jump into matching up rumour engine pictures with reveals, and see where this whole story begins. First the obvious one:


This was revealed to be a part of a larger piece of work showing a greater demon in mid-sky battle with a Kharadron air-ship. Not a mecha suit like I hoped, but of equal steampunk silly-awesomeness.


This piece was one of the first rumour engine picture to released:

 We can now identify this as anything from the Skyriggers to any of the ships. What bugs me about it is tat I can't find any exact matches in the pictures below. Either the bits are just on the other side of the models, or there are more minis waiting to be revealed. See for yourself if there's anything I've missed.






Here's an easy one!


 What I thought may have been an exodite spear turns out to be a Duardin boat hook.



The next ones are all frustratingly close to being part of the reveal, but not identified in the models seen:


There are certainly glowy bits, and the metallics match the colour scheme of the Kharadrons... but there's nothing on the new models that matches it!



Mechanical enough to be part of an air-ship, yet not readily identifiable in the pictures. A further mystery.

That's all for now. Until next time!
