Hmm. Captain is solid and Librarian mini has a lot of character in it.

Reivers fit to new Primaris style but helmets evoke chaplains too much. Legs look really weird like they have some girly boots with high heels pose.

I have passed on Dark Imperium box because of snap fit and here we have another set like this. I wonder when we'll see regular multi-part boxes.

I suspect he has, in the Dark Imperium novel the subject is shortly brought up in a conversation between Guilliman and Cawl.

Dark Imperium models are not snap fit. They are somewhat mono pose with possible head swaps, but still require glue.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

Nice write up.

The 30k Nurgle terminators are actually the Grave Wardens.

I'm also not a fan of the Reivers. They look dopey but not centurion level dopey. The armor looks wrong. And they're wearing high-top sneakers/ trainers.

I did the heroes though and three Nurgle marines are slick. (Pun intended)

Aside from the weird look... What the hell is the Reivers' role supposed to be? I can guess there's some infiltration/stealth aspect to them, but bringing a bolt pistol (12") and a combat knife seems a poor choice of weapons on a unit without jump packs. On a wild guess, they'll get an inch or two of extra movement from the stripped down armour but that's still not that mobile.

Given the general lack of weapon upgrades on Primaris marines, they're probably stuck with those, so... an Assault Squad with no mobility and little punch. But infiltrate and 2 Primaris wounds with a 3+ armour save... Dedicated tarpit unit? I wonder if the stripped armour makes it a 4+ save instead or still a Power Armour 3+

EDIT: Likely related to the Poxwalkers, Plaguebearers appear to be on the way out.

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

The Reivers appear to be Primaris Scouts. Though more likely Space Wolf Scouts which were veterans, not recruits. But yeah, the silenced bolt pistol, what the hell, and combat knife seem a little under equipped. I like all of what I see here aesthetically since I really like the Mark X armors.

The three new Death Guard and the poxwalkers look delightfully disgusting. Though @Shandathe I think GW is going to be putting out a new set of Plaguebearers when they, eventually, put out the full Death Guard line and we finally see Mortarion.

Just seen the fluff for the reivers. They Night Lord better than my Night Lords... :/
Sounds like they infiltrate, use shortened bolt rifle pistols and play screams through the speakers in the armour as they charge...

Seems Cawl has been busy with the gene-blender. Perhaps a holdover from the Cursed Founding. One can wonder if it wasnt Fabius whom interupted it, but Cawl.

And the boots are pure Sororitas. I wouldn't even be surprised if they have a heel like Canoness Veridyan's

The rule references are interesting though. Some sort of infiltration (as expected) and what looks like a debuff on charged (and/or grenaded?) units. Definitely think their intended role is 'Designated Tarpit' now.
