I greatly dislike the plot of the primaris marines. It takes just too much away from regular space marines IMHO. I'd much rather have had GW bite the bullet and just release these new miniatures as a new scale for them, replacing kits over time. I'm okay with having mismatched scale across an army as I see the miniatures as tokens. The explanation for the new marines feels cheap and is a detriment to the grim dark of the rich background.

In the end, nothing changes most and it just makes the point clear that GW will sacrifice anything for increased sales. Can't blame them for that really.

These seem like a bad idea.
IF you really can make a whole army from these guys, it pretty much eliminates the normal SMs.
See house rules coming to limit or ban these guys.

That is a bit chicken little I would say. It's a five man specialist unit with no upgrades.

Did you notice this bit?

And remember, the Intercessor is just one type of Primaris Space Marine that Guilliman ordered up from Mars to defend the galaxy. We’ll have news on a few others very soon…

That could mean anything. I wouldn't make any judgment based on that. It could mean they make a multi-part kit, it could mean you can field one or the other, but not both. Could mean anything.

Same article also stays they will cost more than standard marines. The edition is pushing away from small elite deathstar armies. If you go with only these you most likely will be in a bind in terms of the game as a whole.

Well since these dudes are the tactical squad equivalent, it stands to reason to read it as assault and devastator versions comming. Especially since Terminators and dreads already are confirmed. Especially when viewed in light of wholly Primaris chapters comming. So they will need to cover all the bases for astartes troop types.

' Some, Guilliman has forged into new Space Marine Chapters, whole brotherhoods comprised only of these new warriors.'

Tac squad they are not, tac squad is much more versitle far far as I'm concerned.

Well the onus is certainly on Guiliman now to update the Codex Astartes for the inclusion and use of these new warriors. As well adding a proper preface and introduction for the correct use of the codex, which clearly went way over the heads of his sons as the millenia passed.
