So what exactly is a primaris space marine

Post  Twinlinked on Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:32 am

I was looking at the picks and I can't tell, are they just space Marines that are bigger ten regular Marines?

Soooo... I am doing up a Primaris Space Marine army at this point and have vaguely looked into it (eg. put on a few youtube videos in the background). 

Apparently, before Guilliman was wounded and tossed into stasis, he commissioned some tech priest to make a new and improved space marine. So ten thousand years later, Guilliman is revived and the tech priest finally gets in right and shows off the legions he has created. They're essentially slightly bigger Space Marine with a couple new organs.

There's probably more to it, and I'll probably read the wiki page at some point, but meh. They're just "true-scale" space marines to me.

Are there Primaris Terminators and dreadnoughts and bikes?

Are they the ones on larger basses, or are all space Marines on larger bases now?

There is a Primaris Dreadnought, which is kinda a dreadnought in another dreadnought... But no terminators or bikes.

Here is their range as it stands now:

All marines are now on 32mm bases (including both regular space marines and primaris marines)

The aggressors kinda look like Terminators.  The hover Land Raider is neat looking, and I nearly sharted at the price.

I don't see myself buying any new 40k models, price is too steep, I can make my Marines, grey knights and Necrons work with the models I have, the only thing I may buy is the starter box

It's actually cheaper than the Land Raiders, for a huge model. I'd pick it up but can't seem to sell my Cygnar stuff to save my life.

I wonder how important it is to have your Marines rebased, I will stop by CCBB to check out the tournament to see if people are using both base sizes

It's not super important, both are allowed.

But, the 32mm bases look amazing with marines, I have rebased at least 200 by now and I'm very happy with it. 25mm bases look very out of place now.

If you don't want to pull models off of bases, you can try these conversion kits:
