It is more so with the Primaris because the squads are all equipped the same. At least with a squad of old tac marines you could mix in a heavy and special weapon, and tool up the Sgt. But it's so much more pronounced with the Primaris. There isn't even any variety within the squads.

You know, this is the biggest issue with SM. They're so uniform! With Chaos you have characters with horns sticking out their nipples and heads coming out of their eyes. Each unit is pretty varied. Tau have a zoological encyclopedia of units to chose from. Eldar aspect warriors all look quite different.
But SM...well, they all kind of look the same.

I wasn't impressed with the helmet until I read your comment. Now, although I remain unimpressed, I see a good reason for it. Although personally, I'd rather stick some Calgar Honor Guard helms on the jump pack guys.

Khorne's Fist Inceptors are up for preorder.

The swiftest of the Primaris battle-brothers, Inceptors fill the role of spearhead troops. They hit the enemy in one sudden and overwhelming blow, leaving them reeling as follow-up waves of Space Marines drive home the attack. Equipped with jump packs and reinforced armour, Inceptors can be dropped from the very edge of a planet’s atmospheric envelope, weaving and twisting through the skies before slamming down into the enemy’s midst.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 3 Primaris Inceptors. Clad in Mk X power armour featuring a bulky jump pack – thrust-vectoring rocket engines mounted on the Space Marine’s back, enabling fast, bounding leaps to close on the foe at dizzying speed – they present a unique, easily recognisable silhouette. The jump pack itself and the blast shield cowl that protects the Inceptors’ heads from the immense heat of the pack’s rockets dominate the miniature, with posable fins, shock-absorbing devices attached to the boots and extra cabling and vents unique to this kit. The Inceptors can be armed with either 2 plasma exterminators each or 2 assault bolters each – the plasma exterminators are heavily shielded to provide protection against heat discharge and the assault bolters feature distinctive box magazines.

5 helmets are included, designed to be used with the blast shield cowl – no bare heads here, obviously! 3 blast shield helms are included and 4 purity seals – this includes 1 double seal used to distinguish the Sergeant.

The Primaris Inceptors come as 117 components, and are supplied with 3 Citadel 40mm Round bases, 3 45mm flying stems and a Primaris Space Marines Infantry transfer sheet.

Entarion I really like those last two kits. Looking at the sprues Intercessors are a bit better because they have separate leg and shin armour so it will be easier to convert it. Also legs as separate bit are great.

I like how cleverly is done weapon option (stalker/rifle, heavy/assault plasma). If you could find such little magnets and magnetize it you could change it easily.

But no Primaris for Black Lions this year. My money already went to new gaming rig.

As I understand it from description in WD they all will have option for heavy version with cables and assault without cables. There is no other visual difference between them really. Maybe these cables will be separate bit as well?

I like the assault version more with scope and laser/flashlight.
