There's a new Space Marines codex making its rounds for you 40k players. And, as usual, when there's a new Codex release, the next couple waves are also for that faction. As such, there's new Marines that you can get, including some leaders and a new Tactical Warsuit.
The Invictor Tactical Warsuit is a stripped-back variant on the Redemptor Dreadnought frame. Instead of a revenant hero in a sarcophagus, this combat walker is piloted by a live Primaris Space Marine. They are deployed in every capacity, from armoured escort duties to close-range siege breaking and urban monster-hunts. Still the most iconic role for these walkers is as the armoured support for Vanguard Space Marines. Their combination of mid- to close-range firepower, armoured resilience and the selfless mindset of the pilot combine to provide exceptional support.
Like many of the Primaris Vanguard units, an Invictor Tactical Warsuit has the ability to deploy in a concealed position outside of your own deployment zone, giving it a unique advantage over any Dreadnought-class vehicle in the Space Marines armoury. It has a potent choice of weaponry – if it’s ranged fire support you're after, its twin ironhail autocannon has you covered; if you're looking to engage the enemy up close and personal, it can instead be armed with an incendium cannon. It also carries a heavy bolter that it can wield as a pistol to fire at point-blank range in melee, even as it crushes enemies with its formidable Invictor fist.
This multipart plastic model comes in 116 components and is supplied with a Citadel 90mm Round Base and an Ultramarines Vehicle Transfer Sheet. You'll find the full rules for the Invictor Tactical Warsuit in Codex: Space Marines. The Invictor Tactical Warsuit can also be used in Dark Angels, Space Wolves and Blood Angels armies via a free PDF rules download, available from Warhammer-Community.com.
Each company in a Chapter of the Adeptus Astartes falls under the command of a Captain. It is often said that a Space Marine is worth at least ten other soldiers; under the leadership of a Captain, this swells even further, for they coordinate their warriors with deadly precision and inspire their followers to fight with a dedication and spirit that cannot be instilled by training or discipline alone.
A Primaris Captain in Phobos Armour is an HQ choice for any Adeptus Astartes Faction – including Blood Angels, Dark Angels and even the Space Wolves (for whom he fulfils the role of Wolf Lord). He is a highly skilled warrior in every aspect of battle and wields a deadly master-crafted instigator bolt carbine – a marksman’s weapon designed to snipe enemy commanders. In addition to wearing a camo cloak to enhance the effects of cover, the Primaris Captain in Phobos Armour can use an advanced omni-scrambler to thwart enemy reinforcements as they move onto the battlefield.
This multipart plastic model comes in 9 components and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round Base and an Ultramarines Character Transfer Sheet. You’ll find the full rules for the Primaris Captain in Phobos Armour in Codex: Space Marines.
Eyes blazing and fists crackling with roiling energies, Space Marine Librarians stride into battle to destroy their foes. Some hurl blasts of warp-force that crush their victims to paste, while others twist with the flow of time itself or revitalise their brothers with incredible surges of dynamism. However they choose to fight, all Librarians are powerful psykers, harnessing the potent mutation they bear as a force to defend Humanity.
A Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armour is an HQ choice for any Adeptus Astartes Faction – including Blood Angels, Dark Angels and even the Space Wolves (for whom he fulfils the role of Rune Priest). He is a capable warrior and a powerful psyker who is able to manifest powers from the debilitating Obscuration discipline. He wears a psychic hood, granting him a better chance of thwarting the powers of enemy psykers. Like many other Vanguard units, the Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armour also wears a camo cloak to enhance the effects of cover.
This multipart plastic model comes in 10 components and is supplied with a Citadel 40mm Round Base. You’ll find the full rules for the Primaris Librarian in Phobos Armour in Codex: Space Marines.
Lieutenants act as the right hands of their Captains by providing tactical flexibility and helping to direct their battle-brothers in war. They are often entrusted with direct battlefield command of a demi-company or strike force; by handling the squad-level combat logistics of force coordination and acting as exemplary leaders, they free up their Captains to focus on the wider strategic picture of the entire war zone.
A Primaris Lieutenant is an HQ choice for any Adeptus Astartes Faction – including Blood Angels, Dark Angels and even the Space Wolves (for whom he fulfils the role of Primaris Battle Leader). He wields a melee-focussed combination of power sword and bolt pistol, and his Mark X power armour is adorned with a reliquary and laurel wreaths.
