I really was hoping that they will be called Thundercast Marines... Their statistics are not really impressive if someone asks me but they look great, especially those MK II Cawl-pattern Bolt Rifles.

WTF!

Inceptor Squad is odd. And whole Nurge stuff are... How to say it... Under a heavy influence of Age of Sigmar.

they look cartoony
its like they tried to make DoW3 in model form
worst plague marines i have ever seen
what is with the weird plates welded to the front of the assault marine boltpistols?
and where did they get the plasma weapons, those things that are archeotech and cant be made anymore
where did they get enough to equip entire squads with unreliable weapons and who thought it would be a good idea?
did gilly stockpile them in secret stealing from the mechanicus during the crusade, is he part squirrel?

also what are the stats of that shark?

I don't know, but after some less bright, more dark painting they can come out pretty good.

Imperium can make plasma weapons, forge world of Ryza is known of making vast numbers of such weapons so I'm assuming that such a feat is not beyond capabilities of Holy Mars.

Yeah the new jetpack marines look dumb. The new mark 10 is okey, a bit cheap with half mark 4 half mark 8 but at least convertible.

keep in mind the legs torso and arms are a differant scale, only shoulder peices and heads are gonna be swappable between primaris and regular marines

You can make a mark 8 Marine close enough by just swapping out the Mark IV helmet for a Mark VII.
