Shandathe If they're accepted... turning a regular Marine into a Primaris is apparently a thing, so you might as well upgrade? Not sure we've actually been told what a Primaris actually gets in extras compared to a normal.

Also note that the most willful Chapters, with the pull to resist Guilliman's desires (Space Wolves, Blood Angels) have gotten devastated to the point where rebuilding WITHOUT accepting the readily-available Primaris Marines is impossible, right before Guilliman shows up to ram the Primaris through their throats... so "Take These Or Die Out" is likely to up acceptance.

I'm guessing the regular SM kits will get phased out for Primaris-sized Tacticals/Devastators/Assault Marines over the course of this edition, and possibly the next, with GW advancing the timeline a couple hundred years, after which the Primaris will officially be the new normal.

Amusing note: Unless those are replaced as well, the SCs should still be their current size, so that's going to look funny for a while.

Old Man78 I wonder will chapters who except primaris marines stop harvesting regular marines geneseed wholesale in favour of primaris geneseed or just settle into a two tier system slowly phasing out "regular" marines

Serpion5 The fluff will probably allow for most known chapters to accept Primaris Marines, even if it's noted that they are reluctant. They'll probably invent a few new chapters that outright refuse to take them, and of course people's homebrew chapters can do as their owners please.

Haskanael there is no exact list of wich have or wich haven't yet it will probably be in one of the new books.

Brother Lucian According to the newest fluff, 94% of all chapters have accepted the Primaris. I do not know the ones whom havent.
