    The good news is the GW seems willing to give any developer with an idea a chance to make a 40k game.

    The bad news is that I'm not a developer. :sad:

    Iron Hands Primarch being named Ferrus Manus is very "my first D&D character" but i can't hate it because it is very earnest

    Primaris scouts in lightweight power armour and bolt sniper weapons?


    Yes, this pleases me

    It also has me questioning the role of the generic marines of old

    Dante will attempt Primaris conversion hoping it kills him.

    It doesn't, and Dante wakes up the saddest Primaris

    Ragnar is probably going to get pickled as his model is old as the hills

    Soooo how will the Sanguinor undergo this operation too?

    He won't. The Sanguinor is a warp entity.

    I know. I was hoping someone more clever than me would have a great joke answer. I own his current model.

    Man, they kind of shot themselves in the foot with this Primaris stuff.

    They could have just put out newer, better looking/taller Astartes like people have been wanting since forever, told people that new Space Marine models are here and fluffed away the new look by saying Guilliman demanded new gear/organization stuff.

    I want a space marine game where you play as a Wolf Lord cruising around the empire hopping from planet to planet, asking if anyones seen Russ and trying to not run out of beer.
    While fighting every damn thing in existence.

    Hmm, not quite. I like the ideas of blanche's art, but i think that it doesn't really convey the tangibility of those ideas. They always seem like broad impressions to me, more often than not.

    Like, with video games, i'd really wanna see some of the more out there designs made tangible.

    As rad as all this is it's too bad different locales and widely different vistas would be fucking expensive on the art end. Which means we'll keep getting games set in one area to make that more reasonable.

    oh yeah, that's fair

    i was more hoping that wherever they set it would look a lot better than their pretty standard industrial/cathedral aesthetic that all their games share

    like, show some of the weirder, wackier parts of the imperium

    Hot take: non-rts 40k games kinda suck because all the characters are very one note.

    Playing as a space marine for a whole game gets boring because piety and xenophobia is boring

    Playing as an ork for a whole game gets boring because ork comedy gets boring (but less quickly than the space marine stuff gets boring)

    Playing as chaos marines, mechanicus or inquisitors gets boring because extreme genocide and grimdarkitude gets boring

    Basically 40k works way better at the macro level than the character level. Which is why dawn of war is probably the best 40k game were ever going to get, until Creative Assembly comes along

    Make a management sim where I’m the governor of Necromunda and I have to build the spire bigger and manage growth while dealing with genestealer and chaos uprisings is what I’m trying to say

    The population could have a happiness meter that ranged from ‘extremely miserable’ to ‘incandescent with rage’ it would be hilarious

    Just checked and boy is she ever. Currently she's heavily specialized into making sure sorcerers and daemons are gonna have a bad time, but prior to 8th she had stronger casting stats overall, and a special power called "aura of oppression" that had two different-strength versions; a single non-vehicle unit one, and an area attack version, both of which force pinning tests and even if they pass the aura still prevented the affected unit(s) from being able to use a variety of movement abilities or firing overwatch.

    The webstore has her on the Inquisition model list. I looked her up on the wh40k fandom wiki (formerly known as wikia) and on 1d4chan. Edit: also she's under Inquisition in battlescribe.

    8th ed Greyfax has a master-crafted condemnor bolter (combi-bolter with crossbow alt-mode that fires silver stakes which do d3 to psykers), psyocculum (can snipe any unit with psyker or daemon keywords even if they are not the closest enemy), and psyk-out grenades (mortal wounds on daemons and psykers), plus she can attempt to deny two psychic powers per turn (with a +1 to her rolls to do so).

    Hah, her description on the webstore is great:
    The model is topped off by a wide-brimmed hat which on some models might seem ostentatious, but is entirely appropriate framing the face of Greyfax, which features the Psyocculum – the Eye of the Emperor.
