Episode 99: Starting a Space Marine Army
In this episode, we talk about starting a Space Marine army. We cover the basic rules of marines and the format of the new codex and supplements. We then talk about picking a chapter and whether to collect “traditional” marines versus primaris marines. Finally, we discuss why we are all jumping on the Space Marine bandwagon and why right now is a good time to start a Space Marine army.
Our history with Space Marines: does everyone have a space marine army?
Why are we starting space marine armies now?
- New rules make for a much more interesting play style.
- A more fleshed out Primaris lineup of models with the newest plastics.
- Easiest models to build and paint.
A new system of codex releases for marines; single codex with all dataslates and main rules, supplements with additional rules. Allows them to keep all the unit dataslates across multiple books in one location.
Will we see this for other factions?
Angels of Death
- +1 attack on charge/were charged/heroic Intervention
- Re-roll Morale
- Combat Doctrines
- Bolter Drill
Special issue Wargear versus Relics
Warlord versus Vanguard Warlord Traits
Normal versus Vanguard Psychic powers
Picking a Chapter
Do you build a chapter, or select a generic scheme or unknown successor scheme?
Which chapter to choose?
Primaris versus Traditional marines
The line is split into two, which do you choose?
Will traditional marines be phased out?
Our plans with Space Marines.
