All I got out of the new Space Marine reveal is that CSM are getting a melee buff. I'm even more tempted to get a Bezerker party Rhino now.

Fixed that for you. :lol:

I'm really not feeling it. It's better than the Grey Knight baby-carrier, but then again nearly everything is. I guess it fits with the Primaris theme of updated tech for the Imperium, but I much prefer the more grim-dark theme of stuffing near-death marines into dreadnoughts.

See, there's something about the silhouette of that guy that recalls the RT-era dreadnought. Plus it has a pistolised heavy bolter.
Feel free to call me Dave!

Overall I’m not for this. I mean they just embiggoned the space marines and the dreadnaughts. Was it just not enough for the imperium? (Oh, wait, how silly of me to think it was all big enough.) My other question is what tactical role does this play that the dozen odd variations of the dreadnaught doesn’t already?

But, I’m a fan of the heavy bolter sidearm. :) Totally Heavy Gear- Gundam thing I suppose.

I would have to agree with you there Prim. Though, that pistolized heavy bolter is pretty darn rootin tootin cool as ToD said.

I'm with Prim. As technically slick as these Bigmarine sculpts are, they just do not push my grimdark button.

And job, who'd of ever thought we'd ever use the words "rootin' tootin'" to describe a Space Marine figure? It really ought to just have 2 and leave out the flak gun or whatever is built into it's right arm.

Meh, it’s a bleh from me. Very much a continuation of the grey knight thingy. Except the sidearm. That’s cool. Just not cool on this mini. Should be on an ork dred or something. Like, a whole row of em, all down the leg :)

WTF is this? A Mars pattern upgrade sprue?!? But they showed renders of Deimos pattern Rhino parts in the earlier previews. Darn you GW, darn you all the way to heck! #shakes fist at sky#

There's rumors that the Immolator and/or whatsit, organ rocket launcher thing, will lean in more heavily to the Deimos angle. They've definitely shown and mentioned specifically a lot more bits than you can see on this model.
