Primaris Marines are getting some awesome new stuff! Thanks GW!


This is an extremely exciting time in Warhammer 40,000! Not only have we seen a complete overhaul of the rules, but we are also getting a new faction, which is expanding quickly. Additionally, they have been pushing the storyline of 40k forward, which is a much needed breath of fresh air after seeing almost 30 years of static fluff.

So enough about how excited we at Encounter Wargaming are about all this. Let’s take a look at all the awesome new stuff that GW is putting out in the next few weeks!

First on the list is the new Primaris Captain. This is a spectacular model and in our opinion looks light years better than the one that comes in the Dark Imperium set. This excites us because it means that we will have access to different weapon options than what is provided in the initial launch of the Primaris Rules. Every Space Marine player will be happy to include this beautiful sculpt in their collection.

The next model in the new releases is this badass Librarian. It boggles our minds how amazing these new Primaris models are turning out! This model absolutely blows all the existing Librarian models out of the water. Even though the current models are awesome, this is definitely a step up. So Cool!

The next new addition to the Primaris Line is the Reavers. We are assuming that these will effectively fill the roll of Space Marine Scouts. The modification to the MKX armour is so badass looking it made our jaws drop. Not only are these pieces clearly kitted out for infiltration but they are sporting the coolest combat blades we have seen yet. Also skull masks…so awesome!

Also the fact that you can see the black carapace through their armour is a sweet aesthetic. These are probably the coolest Space Marine models to date. But they won’t buy you dinner…haha

So that’s the latest on Primaris Marines. Check out the blog again tomorrow where we take a look at the new Death Guard goodies. What a great time to be a 40k gamer.

Today is our first episode that doesn’t have 8th edition as our main topic. We do talk about all of our 8th edition games we have played and tease out a few interesting new things that we have learned with our armies BUT the main focus is STARTING A GAMING CLUB!

Over the past 2 years we have started a gaming club that has turned into something really special and there might be something that we have to offer anyone who is considering taking their gaming experience with their friends to the next level.
