It's official (well, leaked) - Rowboat Girlyman is back and this time, he's plastic!

Wahey! He can estrange and piss off the rest of the imperium, then sod off to make his own little empire like he did during the heresy!

TBH, the fact that he's fantastically flawed during the HH novels actually makes me like the guy a little more...

I was pretty sickened about the Ultramarines, until I twigged what the insidious little b*stards were actually doing.

They lay down this codex to limit the power of all the Space Marine Legions, split the army from the navy and the marines so no single chapter master would hold enough power to rebel (or declare independence...).

Then, they keep their little private empire, surrounded by the little private empires of their successor chapters, with their own private army that answers to the sector Lord (who just so happens to be Calgar), with its own chapter fleet and PDF naval assets. All the while disseminating propaganda that paints them as the model of codex compliancy, and penalising other chapters for breaking those selfsame rules.

People think the Dark Angels are sneakily amassing more power than any one chapter should have. The Ultramarines are doing it in plain sight!

Sneaky, hypocritical, grimdark smurfs Wink very suspicious...

Chaos book (imperial characters)
Eldar book (eldar characters)
Imperial book (imperial characters)
I'm actively pissed for all chaos players....

Also ribbit girlyman looks ridiculous with those legs that are longer than his everything else combined.

Generic grey knight is generic.

Cypher looks cool.

I absolutely shudder to think about how cringe inducingly broken these rules are going to be. I really do.

The impression I got was that he is tactically very astute, but has terrible interpersonal skills. Half the primarchs severely dislike him, most of the rest respect his council but think he's a tosser, with a few that actually like him (sort of to be expected if you label a few of them your' Dauntless Few').

He's a brilliant tactician, but compared to the other primarchs an uncharismatic leader that's lacking in the diplomacy skills necessary to unite them as Warmaster.

My thoughts exactly. Guilliman is all that's wrong about the 'MORE BLING!!!11!!1' school of model design.

Also, is it truly impossible for them to make a SM model that's actually in scale legs-to-torso? Or make one that doesn't look like it'd have to skip every single leg day during training to fit within the leg armour?

Personal feelings of model design aside, big day for Marine players...

Agree that the Roboute model doesn't look great. Cypher looks pretty cool though!

Yeah poor marines really needed some love. Glad to see they haven't forgotten them.

He's described as Julius Caesar in space. Some people aren't comfy with their politics being run as an extension of the army.

You wouldn't notice from the picture because he looks exactly the same as any other grey knight...

I don't think it's Draigo as he's supposed to have a sword isn't he? Plus, there's nothing wrong with his existing, and relatively new, model.

Well, neat i guess. Tbh just happy that they're moving along with releasing all the non-dead primarchs so we can move on and get more important things, like usable wych cults.

I havent followed all the fluff in the Cadia Incedent. But is it likely that when all the primarchs are released some sort of event will happend that'll lead to the 8th edition ?

You sir have a great sense of humour Smile

As for Draigo, not enough spangly sh*t and being inexplicably twice the size of anyone else. Probably a new character.

Also, just thinking about it, Guilliman outside of his armour must look like a skinny guy who's been stretched on a rack...

I heard from someone unfounded that he's part dreadnought.

I've heard that he's actually the C'tan Deceiver in disguise.





By 'heard' I mean that I just made that up

Roboute!!!!!!

Omg.... I love it. And him. I think the Sizing/Proportions are hard to tell, as he is standing in front and on top of terrain while his legs are differently angled.

But I really am interested in how he Joined forces with Cypher+Band and the Grey Knights. Latter makes sense but C makes things complicated. Especially G's relationship with his sibling, big L.

Okay... 2 questions...
- HOW did Calgar wear that gauntlet?
- Do UM players cut his hands off and glue normal SM gauntlets on him?

The story of what's going on, given by Warhammer. Not sure about the model, prefer the forge world Girlyman. The grey knight is Volder
