Holy shit. Guess you still can't spell Seraphim without RAPE.

Also a giant boost for whoever else still carries a Bolt Pistol by default come the new Codex (can't be sure).

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Hmm...is he implying that there will be a new type of space marine? Super space marines? This would explain any potential 'true scale' models. You can explain the size difference with old marines by stating that they are the new super space marines.

It turns out that Chaos has their own band...

Sounds very cool, though I think it might detract from the lore of previous marines. Regardless, if these are sort of super elites, I'm down for that.

spunds like Custodes in SM armour to me. Interesting to see they'll be available to all chapters from the outset, by the looks of it.

I'm just wishing they'd stop making the 40K release sound less like Age of Sigmar (now with free Stormcasts! err... supermarines!)

Love the voice actor for this though.

Will be interesting to see what happens with these guys. What source material did Cawl make them from? Are they more resistant to chaos unlike your standard marines?

Question is: Will they be available to every chapter fluff-wise or rather process creation? And why and how should I include them in my chapter and how will it change everything? I would really like to see some intriguing fluff behind them than bigger-better.

And they don't exactly look like primarch size/strength. So it is just about cloning ? To have endless amount of cloned marines instead of slow and risky recruitment process? W40k Clone Wars soon ?

But why do you assume it's cloning? We could simply be seeing the sarcophagi used to make normal marines.

Maybe but scale here is obviously more huge ? Anyway, SM were the greatest defenders of humanity for over ten thousand years and now they are not enough? Will they still have any personality or will they be only war machines immune to any corruption as they should always be ? Are RG and Cawl trying to be better than Emperor ?

GW is obviously trying to do a fresh start here but I think they might destroy SM as we know them today. But it is still to early to judge. Maybe.
