Sounds like they infiltrate, use shortened bolt rifle pistols and play screams through the speakers in the armour as they charge...
Plus, they'll make great Nightlords models.

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

Who says Primaris Marines can't fall to chaos?

I'm sure they can, but it's only been a bit over a century as of Dark Imperium and the Imperium's rather more watchful for Chaos influence now than back in Horus' days.

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

Supposedly they're more resistant to Chaos. However, in the Dark Imperium novel the Primaris Captain starts feeling drawn into the influence of Chaos while slaying Death Guard. Only to be knocked back to his senses by the Librarian knocking on his chest with his Force Staff. And telling him to knock it off.
Also, Cawl has been totally using gene-seed from the renegade Primarchs, even though Guilliman has directly told him not to. It's implied Cawl is doing that not expressly stated. But come on, this is not a guy who doesn't do his own thing when he wants to.

The librarian and captain are up for preorder. Looks like the captain has a couple of options for his bolt rifle. Very pricey at €30 for a single mini though.

EDIT: Just saw my LGS's fb page, they're saying they'll be selling them for €15.50 each on release day. Cheeky, considering they're only 50 yards down the road from the local GW.

Stay calm, Guardsman!
Reinforcements from the Adeptus Astartes have been deployed to your war zone – and you may have been lucky enough to meet them already! Whether you’ve stormed a hostile bastion – only to have found it strangely empty but for a pile of gory remains, or seen an entrenched enemy turn and flee seemingly out of nowhere, you’ve probably met the Reivers.

While the Adeptus Astartes know no fear, their enemies certainly do! The purpose of the Reivers is to exploit the cowardice of our enemies through the use of shock tactics and advanced training. You are unlikely to encounter any of these warriors directly, but should you find yourself face to face with a skull-faced giant in power armour in the middle of the night, welcome him with open arms – he is most likely a Reiver.*




While they may be grim in appearance, you have nothing to fear from these exemplary warriors of the Emperor – provided you follow the below advice at all times.**

Use Ear Protection!
Reivers disrupt the hearing of the enemy with vox-amplified war cries and audio-sonic weaponry. Unfortunately, the heresy corrupted eardrum of a traitor is not too dissimilar from the blessed but regrettably fragile eardrum of a loyal member of the Astra Militarum, such as yourself. Make sure to insert ear protection to guard yourself against aural damage – if none is provided, a pair of spare socks should suffice.***

Clear a Drop Zone!

If you are expecting Reiver support, make sure to establish a clear drop zone. If a drop zone cannot be cleared in time, attempt to drop to the floor to make a soft and level surface for the Reivers to land on.

Keep a Strong Mind and a Strong Stomach

Should you happen upon a squad of hostile infantry strung from the local foliage by their viscera, there is no need to be alarmed – this display is meant to intimidate the enemy, not you, and thus you have nothing to worry about. If any new recruits are disquieted by this, a warm cup of Tanna Tea followed by a reminder of the penalties for cowardice should be enough to steel even the most delicate of bowels.****

There you have it, Guardsman! The Reiver is your friend and your ally – just stay well out of his way.

Thought For the Day: There is nothing to fear but failure.

* If any of the following details are also present – red wings on the helmet, flayed hides, or a corona of daemonic lightning – immediately consult Volume 2 of the Infantryman’s Threat Identification Field Guide, 49th edition, section ref. 17.a66.4111 – Hereticus Majoris (revised)
** Where possible, a minimum safe distance of 13 feet is also recommended.
*** If you end up with permanent irreparable loss of hearing, worry not! There are exciting roles in the Astra Militarum just for you. For more information, please consult uplifting pamphlet 114//c: “You What? – The Artillery Crewman’s Guide to Sign Language”.
**** Please note that vomiting on the battlefield is punishable by flogging on grounds of wasting valuable rations.




-------------------------------------------------------
The Reivers are increasingly sounding like Loyalist Night Lords with a dose of screaming Banshee mixed in. o_O
Makes one wonder why geneline-blending resistant Guiliman are tolerating them alongside the Primaris forces, as he himself would've known of the pre-heresy Night Lords and their excesses. Which these guys are an all too overt reminder of.

One can wonder what the Night Lords thinks of the Reivers and Guiliman's role in commissioning them. Would be highly ironic if G-man came to see the terror tactics of the Night Lords as useful if properly harnessed and controlled. He after all had been on the recieving end of such things from Curze himself during the Imperium Secundus and the whole Pharos debacle.

Saw on Bols that a rulesbits for the Primaris Captain and Libby have been posted, with the datasheet to be found in the model boxes. However..



I find it noteworthy that Dark Angels Primaris Librarians gains both the Deathwing and Unforgiven keywords. Meaning that they mustve been appraised about the Fallen Angels. One can now wonder how much of it G-man himself knows now.

Perhaps the Dark Angels secret is not as devastating as its been made out to be. Or perhaps Big Blue simply can't afford to create a problem where there doesn't need to be one.
