Default Truescale Marines On The Way?

Has the reveal of 8th Ed dropped a hint at truescale SMs? These guys certainly look much bigger and beefier. Just take a close look at the bolters. Personally I thought they were on the way as soon as I put my first DW mini together. They are a good bit bigger than older versions.

Christ, I wonder how much they will cost!? Of course would make up for the marines I butchered trying to true scale some of my own!

Could you put up a comparison pic of your death watch marine beside one your wolves? Are the death watch still proportionally the same but bigger or are they bigger but also longer legged

Definitely height wise. Overall bulk is hard to say because mk viii armour is bulkier than the others anyway.

I recall rumours of a new power armour variant. and two of those are in the same pose.
I'm thinking maybe not bigger. but maybe new starter set models?


but at least they aren't standing on heads ;)

These pictures of new marines are making me nervous. I don't have many models painted but I have several kits of marines and I like to have sort of consistency in my army.

These "true scale" kits can make older kits incompatible. Look at those bigger bolters!

I know that DW models are already taller which is mainly because of leg positioning ( but models legs are bit oversized as well) and tactical marines have always had that awkward middle-crouch pose which made them smaller.

I am certainly worried. I hope that reveal of new starter set and models will happen very soon. Hopefully, next week.

I'm in agreement with this; I just don't have the funds to rehash my entire army.

EDIT: That being said, I'm not THAT worried about it. And you could always just tell them to fudge off.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

I don't know if that's truescale. I've got the painting box the models are up against and looking at that for scale makes them the same size as they've been. It looks more like these ones have better poses and better bolters. If the DW models are a touch bigger than that probably what these guys are.
Personally, when I'm playing around building Space Marines, I love the fact I can mix and match bitz. Using those bitz to make characters. So, I hope they keep the marines at a close scale to what has come before.

Quick comparison image.
An older SM model with that goofy half squatting position vs new picture of new (?) marines
Not taken at a matching angle but then I don't have a very good camera for that.

They still seem quite taller to me but that might be an angle view. Anyway, I have read in many places that these are completely new models representing new unit (MK9 armour, advanced weaponry,..). So it shouldn't be replacement for old marines.

Just wondering what will be the new taller tactical marines representing. Maybe because SM are the most iconic they want them to look even more badass when new rules come.
