I dont know how but gw found a way to make the holy rhino and land raider chassis look terrible. I find this models quite repulsive actually, maybe its my hate for all things Grav or its the terrible painting. Or maybe its the name... Excelsior ? WTF sounds like a barbie doll convertable.
The worst thing is that they wont update the rules for LRC,LRR,LRP and they wont be a viable option compared to this exelsior.... Even typing the name brings RAGE in me out.

the land raider looks so-so (think it would look better without the commander on it)
the rhino however, looks truly, dire

"Send the Rhino Primaris to lead our forces"
"We can't Sir, if you will remember it went up a hill and fell over backwards"

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I'm not much for those two. The Rhino is rather simple and standard but this just looks horrid and excessive just for the sake of it so they can justify giving us a new model. Same to for the LR.

If all they really do for the marines is give us just them kits, and make the Predator, Whirlwind, Vindicator Squadrons they really shouldn't have bothered and moved over to Dark Angels if they wanted marines, since the two kids could just be released separately and FAQ the other tanks to be Squadroned.

I don't like them. This disappointed me at first. Then I remembered I'm Raven Guard and don't care about tanks.

good thing is if ppl dont like primaris model but if ends up with good rules they could use the democles as counts as. One is basically a blinged up versinn of the other.

Lame looking for sure, but any time you put any SM crew on a transport vehicle the scale looks fucktarded to me. I'm thinking the models I've sequestered away from my BA to become IF might just stay in the 'paint it red' cue.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Actually I love them, consistent with Space Marines and they look great in the blue smurf colour scheme.

GW have done well.

At this point in time these are Games Workshop World Exclusives.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

Hey Ultra Marines. Caesar called - He wants his honour back and wants you to stop making his nation look like a Toys'R'us parade.
