Evil Eye Posted March 15 Share Posted March 15 I recently bought the 4E Marine Codex with the intent of making a little 1000 point army for that edition ('cause I don't have many modelling projects...) and intend to build it using old-scale Marines. Mainly because I want to use some older character models, which are too gorgeous to pass up in spite of their slightly smaller stature, and also I find the older Marines quite charming- plus I want them to be clearly Firstborn, and truescaling the entire army (either via hacking up Firstborn minis or de-Primarising Primaris models) would be a pain. I will say I like some of the Primaris models; the fluff is a bit ehhhhhhhhhh for me, but I can't bring myself to hate the Intercessors, Bladeguard or a lot of the characters for instance. And for Kill Team/INQ28/other "skirmish level" games where you can sink far more time into each model I'd definitely use them as the basis for Astartes models, even if they were reworked to be truescaled Firstborn, which is what I'm doing with a spare Firestrike Techmarine. If I were told to make a Space Marine army for 10th of any great size (presumably at gunpoint) I'd almost certainly go predominantly Firstborn, as the introduction of Primaris has actually made me care about Space Marines...just not the ones GW wanted me to! I'd be willing to mix in some Primaris units here and there, but only ones I either sufficiently like or feel I could convert/proxy to be bearable.
