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…

New Death Guard Models!

Just a quick one on these guys, and a little pat on the back for Games Workshop.

Gooey.
These are easy build Death Guard Plague Marines, as revealed on Warhammer Community. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the models, and they even match well with the Dark Imperium numbers.


Right now, the Dark Imperium box comes with 7 Plague Marines (Nurgle's number). These easy build plague Marines not only bump that up to a full squad of 10, but bring a special weapon with them. What this means is that you can now field one big Plague Marine unit, or two 5-man units each with a special weapon.


Good.

Really gooey.
Not so great with these guys, but easy to build horde models are alwas welcome. Unfortunately these look like they come in packs of six, and thus don't really gel well with the models you get from Dark Imperium.




That said, they do have a rule where models they kill have a chance of adding to their unit, so maybe having some spare will be a good thing.




Next up we look at the new starter kits that are available.


Until next time!
