New Primaris Space Marines Lead The Way In 8th Edition Warhammer 40,000

Games Workshop has now broken their silence on the new Primaris Space Marines for Warhammer 40,000. Forged in secret by Belisarius Cawl under orders from Roboute Guilliman they are here to reclaim the Galaxy from the Xenos and Chaos forces arrayed against them.

In the accompanying FAQ that came out today with the video, they talked about what this means for the existing Space Marines. They don’t replace them, in fact, they are meant to complement them on the battlefield.

Primaris #4

While there are going to be entire Chapters made out of these new Primaris Space Marines there will also be many where they have been called into service to plug the gaps in existing faction’s forces. The style of them is great, really drawing on a new dynamic look.

Primaris #1

As well as these Space Marines they also teased that you’re going to be getting a new Primaris Dreadnought too which I reckon is going to built on the idea of the Contemptor Dreadnoughts.

Primaris #2

Last but not least we have a run down of their new equipment which means they’re wearing MK X armour and carrying around a new pattern of Bolt Gun too.

Primaris #3

They look seriously dangerous and ready to stick it to the enemies of the Emperor. In terms of their use in-game, they are more expensive than their Space Marine buddies but the cost might be worth it.

Known as the Intercessors, we also got a run down on the new Bolter statistics which come in at Range 30, Strength 4, AP -1 and Rapid Fire.

So, what do you make of the new Space Marines?
