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…

Quick and Dirty (Ha!) Plague Marine

Sometimes I feel as though I do things for the awful puns I can title the projects with.

I do not apologise for this behaviour.

This is a Plague Marine from the Dark Imperium box set. My students aren't ever so fussed about the paint job of Chaos Marines, and they tend to say that the spiky bits and tentacles carry the model no matter what the colour.

Basically they were just excited to play with the damn thing, and as a teacher I was happy to oblige. Getting students engaged in anything is the first step to outstanding teaching.

This took about one hour to paint, and that included letting the paint dry.

  • Undercoat White
  • Wash the white with thinned Ushabti Bone.
  • Base coat the restof the armour (WAAAGH Flesh, Hashut Copper, Khorne Red)
  • Heavy wash of Agrax Earthshade


There's certainly more detail I can do later, but in terms of getting this model to tabletop and looking the part, it's done the trick.

Until next time!
