BREAKING NEWS: New Primaris Blood Angels kits

Just like some of the previous kits, Blood Angels are coming in with their own upgrade sprue bundled with Primaris Intercessors, Hellblasters and Aggressors.


Here's the upgrade sprue. It's great, but just like the Deathwatch one you're going to have a lot of left-over shoulder pads. Hopefully the larger gravis armour pads are the same size as Termy pads.

They also have a new character coming in (because Blood Angles only had ten, and need to catch up to Space Wolves...), the Primaris Lieutenant Tolmeron. The model is very austere as a character, but that's been the theme for Primaris HQ and characters since they arrived:


New models, even if they are just upgrade kits, are always welcome, but the most interesting part of the Warhammer Community drop is this:

As for new rules, there’s all the awesome stuff you know and love from the rest of this edition’s codexes – Stratagems, Warlord Traits, Psychic Powers and more – as well as some special extras. You’ll now be able to clad the Archangels – the legendary, Terminator-armoured first company of the Blood Angels – in Cataphractii and Tartaros armour, diversifying the range of tactical options available to you. If you prefer aerial warfare, this codex sees the Blood Angels gain access to the popular Stormhawk Interceptorand well as the Stormtalon Gunship.
It looks like the Blood Angels will be getting the same toys as their vanilla brethren, something which has been an active deterrent to players picking up the Sons of Sanguinius for a while. Yes, you got the Death Company and Furioso Dreadnoughts, but you passed up on the wider variety of vehicles, and the arguably better Venerable and Ironclad Dreadnoughts.

We'll have to wait and see if the entire Space Marine arsenal opens up to the Blood Angels, but that makes them a very enticing option for players who want even-more-special-than-usual Space Marines.

And if you are interested, have a look at my Blood Angels Painting Guide. Your noble angels deserve to look their best!

Until next time!
