As some of you may now, after the advancing of the setting, Guilliman the Primarch launched a new crusade, Indomitus Crusade, to fight the advance of Chaos, which after the fall of Cadia has deviated from its direct path to Terra and instead has created a lot of damage in the galaxy.

 

The galaxy has been effectively separated in two halves by a warp rift that crosses it by the middle. One half -North and part of East- is isolated from the light of the Astronomicon and it's called Dark Imperium (Imperium Nihilus). There are some notorius planets like Baal, Mordia, Valhala and some other space marine worlds.

 

The purpose of the crusade is also to save these worlds from whatever is happening there (say Chaos, Tyranids, Orks and Necrons).

 

With this briefing in mind, Guilliman ordered the Archmagos Cawl to restart the Primaris Marines project. Something which has developed 10k years ago but after the coma state of Guilliman it wasn't never launched. Now it's time to distribute them

 

The Primaris Marines are a new breed of marines. Some summary from the Q&A of GW here

 

 

>What is a primaris space marine?
new generation of space marines. Blended primarch, custodes, and space marine geneseed. Bigger, more powerful, but more specialized when compared to tactical squads. The entire primaris squad is all trained in the same weapon.

 

- so yes, the squads are more expensive and more specialized, like aspect warriors maybe. The only known squad is the intercessor squad and has a bolt rifle as a new weapon

>Ultimate Founding…
New Primaris Marine Chapters! + they will be in other existing Space Marine Chapters. Even existing Space Marines can be adapted and made into Primaris Space Marines.

 

- the idea is that you either can use the new primaris to reinforce your old space marines or to make a whole army made of these. To flesh the idea, the lore admits either new founding chapters (to be seen), or that every chapter can be reinforced with these new ones.

Eventually the idea is that people shift from the old, short minis to these new, taller ones.

>What is Mark X Armor and what happened to Mark IX?
Mark X of Armor is new but didn't give a lot of information about it.
Mark IX is a mystery on what happened to it.

- Mark armor X is the new one, as you can see in the pics. Mark IX is like the Windows 9

More FAQs here

So, what’s a Primaris Space Marine?

These are a brand-new breed of warrior, commissioned by the Primarch Guilliman and developed in secret on Mars for the past 10,000 years by Archmagos Belisarius Cawl. Find out all about them and check out an awesome video here.

Are all my current Space Marine miniatures redundant now?

No way! Primaris Space Marines do not replace regular (if a superhuman killing machine can be described as ‘regular’) Space Marines. These guys have a few extra genetic enhancements, thanks to Belisarius Cawl, and serve as additional reinforcements in the Adeptus Astartes arsenal, not replacements.

Will there be multiple types of Primaris Space Marines?

You bet. So far you’ve seen the Intercessors, the line infantry clad in Mk X armour, but there are plenty more on the way. And likely vehicles too…

Wait, Mk X armour?

Yup, these guys have new armour: combining the best bits of classic Horus Heresy-era plate, with some fancy tech developed more recently.

Can I field a whole army of Primaris Marines?

You totally can. From a background point of view, some Chapters, especially those decimated in the events of the Gathering Storm, now have entire companies of these new warriors. Others have incorporated squads of Primaris Space Marines into existing Battle Companies. And perhaps most excitingly, Guilliman has founded some entirely new Chapters out of these new Space Marines.

I have an <insert favourite Chapter> army. Can I field Primaris Space Marines?

Any of the galaxy’s many hundreds of Codex Chapters can use Primaris Space Marines, along with many of the less Codex-compliant ones like Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Space Wolves.

So, Primaris are just better in the game, right? What’s the point of using older Space Marines?

Marine to Marine, they certainly have some advantages over a Tactical Squad, but it comes at a cost. These guys will cost more points than standard Space Marines, so you’ll have fewer of them, and their weapon options will be different. For maximum tactical punch, you’ll want to bring all your Space Marines to the tabletop.

What if I don’t want to use them?

Well, aside from missing out on some cool new models and tactical options for your army, then that’s totally cool. You certainly don’t have to include Primaris Space Marines in your Space Marines army. Though when you see the Primaris Redemptor Dreadnought, you’ll want to. Primaris Dreadnought? Did I write that…? Nah. Moving on.

Are the kits compatible with existing Space Marine kits?

Good Question. There are certainly elements of the existing Space Marines kits that will be cross-compatible, while the new armour mark means that some parts won’t mix as easily. Shoulder pads and helmets are the same scale, and will still work, whereas the legs, torso and arms are different, and not quite as interchangeable. In terms of the Primaris sets themselves, you’ll have loads of fun kit-bashing them.

Can I use these guys alongside my Astra Militarum army?

Yeah you can. These new Space Marines will be available to use alongside all Imperial armies to fill some battlefield roles your army might normally struggle with.

More disclosures about the whole new line of Primaris Marines:

 

http://www.belloflos...-new-units.html

 

We have:

 

Intercessor squads: 5 men carrying a Cawl pattern bolt rifle and grenades

 

Hellblaster squads: 5 men with a hellblaster (some new word easy to copyright than plasma gun); maybe they will have some upgrades with heavy weapons

 

Interceptor squad: jump assault marines with a odd shaped jet pack, reminiscent of the old rogue trader designs

 

Primaris lieutenants: some bosses with cc weapon and bolt pistols

 

Primaris ancient: how is it possible if they are brand new? Seems that they're an excuse for a banner bearer using some old marine upgraded into primaris 

 

Captain in gravis armour: The Gravis armour seems to be like the new Terminator armour

Lexicanum found out from somewhere that they will be using Contemptor Pattern Dreadnoughts.

More news from today:

 

 

"In the wake of the Gathering Storm, the scattered Space Marine Chapters of the galaxy have been bled dry. Facing gigantic Warp storms that swallow whole systems, constant attack by the forces of Chaos, rampaging xenos and more, the Adeptus Astartes are stretched thinner than ever. Many Chapter Planets are now actively under siege, some Chapters are confirmed as destroyed or lost, and even those faring relatively well have suffered high casualties and are in desperate need of reinforcement.

 

Enter Roboute Guilliman and his Primaris Space Marines. The newly reinstated Lord Commander of the Imperium has decreed that those Chapters most devastated by the ongoing wars should be amongst the first to be reinforced with this new breed of warrior. Starting with the Ultramarines, but also deploying these new Space Marines to every other Chapter in need, Guilliman aims to reinforce the Imperium’s scattered defenders across the galaxy.

 

It is not just as reinforcements to existing Chapters though. Guilliman has also ordered the creation of a host of new Chapters, the Ultima Founding, composed entirely of Primaris Space Marines. The warriors of these new Chapters were created entirely using the new processes discovered by Belisarius Cawl and established with all the necessary weapons, armour and equipment that they’ll need to conduct their defence of the Imperium.

 

These Chapter’s still trace their genetic lineage back to the gene-seed of the First Founding, and scions of all nine loyalists Legions emerged from the vaults beneath the red planet. They benefit from three additional organs and larger size, but it still remains to be seen if Cawl was able to successfully stabilise any of the known genetic deviations or impart any additional resistance to the effects of Chaos.

 

Many of these new Chapters have been assigned home worlds on the edge of the Great Rift, the Imperium’s new frontline in the war against Chaos, though some have inherited the empty Fortress Monasteries of Chapters that had been lost to the attrition of constant war. Many of these worlds face a continuous battle against the Daemons of the Warp, as well as an unpredictable mix of xenos raiders, pirates and invaders.

 

If you are looking for an excuse to embark on a Space Marine army come the new edition, this is it.

Here’s a page from the upcoming Warhammer 40,000 book, showing off not only how those new Primaris Space Marines look in the colours of some familiar Chapters, but also showing off few whole new ones:"

 

New40kUltimaFoundingSpreadPage-358x500.j

 

 

Cannot be seen quite well in this image but besides some first founding chapters, the Black Templar and the Crimson Fists, there are new successor chapters: The Knights of the Chalice (Blood angels), the Blades of Vengeance (Dark Angels) the Fulminators (Ultramarines) and the Rift Stalkers (Raven guard).

I have found the first 3d models for Primaris!!!

 

They are two versions of a sergeant of intercessor squads (or a lieutenant and a sergeant by the looks of it). The sergeant has the new bolter Cawl pattern II.

 

Although they're not in the most favourable way (they are scans of the real miniature in a single obj file), I think some modeller can use parts of it to improve/upgrade current models.

Love to see those in a 3rd branch in the forthcoming super-massive Ultramarines branch! Those models look wayy too good for this game engine so unsure the art style would work but, damn, imagine we could xref those models with existing marines/commanders.

These ones are too difficult to port but I found the right ones. I only need to master some formatting techniques to be able to port into max. I'll keep you informed when there is some advance.

Ideally, the Primaris going into DoW1 should look somewhat similar to the latest Astartes BUT taller and maybe a little.. thinner/more streamlined.

 

Well, at least we'll have the voice scripts mostly ready before the first one is finally complete in 1. <^_^

Roderick, hi

Did you have any luck in this regard. If you ported Primaris into max I would appreciate it if you could send me the files, if you can of course.

Think we need to discuss this on Discord.

Long before anybody says anything,I am the one who managed to port them. So far,I have finished work on the Inceptors. Not too mention that I have gotten actual confirmation from the original modeler,Joazz,that i can use them,as long as I edit them to be in line with the DOW artistic direction(which means optimizing and editing the textures).

 

Again,we could further discuss this in Discord.
