Like so many others in the Warhammer 40K community this week, I grabbed a couple of copies of Issue 1 of Warhammer 40,000: Conquest. With three ‘Easy to Build’ Primaris Marines, three pots of paint and a paint brush all for the price of less than a single pot of paint, it was too good a bargain to miss!
The magazine looks like a great introduction for newcomers – which is obviously who it is intended for – but there’s nothing in there for veterans that we haven’t seen before. This is totally to be expected as we’re not the target market. But for those already in the hobby, the real prizes are the paints and the Intercessors. This sprue normally retails for £10 alone!
With their hollow bodies and nicely posed legs, the Primaris Marines are ideal for my LED eye lens treatment. Even the slotted 32mm bases will be easier to cut-up for battery insertion. When I look at all the Primaris releases, I sometimes think there’s someone in the GW design studio looking out for me and trying to make my life easier!
These guys they will be joining the rest of my Primaris force as Crimson Fists. I’ll be carrying out head-swaps as part of the LED process anyway, but I’m hoping some arm swaps might also add some variety to the duplicated poses. Watch this space!
