Greetings Terrans, how goes it? Well, it has been nearly a month, and I’m still plugging away at my Primaris LotD marines… I have 2 new units to share with you today.
First up is a 5 man squad of Intercessors armed with Stalker bolt rifles… That means that these guys have a longer range, an extra pip of armour penetration and an extra point of damage, (yes, I picked up the new codex a few weeks back, so I know all the right numbers and words now!!). In a world where Marines now have 2 wounds each, that extra point of damage is potentially very useful… Anyway, here they are – nothing unusual to report on the painting front:
Next up is a unit of ‘Inceptors’ (I actually only painted four guys, as I had already painted the guy in the middle as part of my POC). These guys have 3 wounds & kick out 6 shots each at Strength 5, can deep strike, and can bounce around at 10” per turn… Pretty darn good! I could do with one more to max out the squad size, but 5 is a pretty nice number to have. Again, nothing special to report on the painting front, very much business as usual:
Well, that’s it for another post – more of the same to follow I’m afraid, with more Intercessors on the paint station… feel free to unsubscribe for a few months if you’re getting bored of Primaris LotD! Assuming you don’t, I’ll try and catch up with you all before Christmas kicks in – stay safe out there & all the best.
I love it – “nothing special on the painting front”! :-) I just read “brilliant” for that – they are very nice indeed!
Aw, cheers mate 😊
Extremely nicely done. I like pretty much everything about how you painted and based them.
Thanks Ann, and well done on all your training – I’m worn out just reading about it! Keep on truckin’ 👍

Love those. They sound pretty powerful too.
Cheers mate – I’ve only managed 1 game of new 40k so far, but Marines do seem to be pretty solid, so yeah, I think these guys should do well
Well I’m a long way from being bored Alex so just keep these guys and anything else you fancy doing chugging along. Great minis mate but then I expect nothing less! 🙂
Aw, thanks mate, there is always a nagging fear that painting an army isn’t as much fun for the reader as it is for the blogger – glad I haven’t bored you to tears yet 🤣
I think you have a long way to go mate before there is any chance of that . 🙂
I’m not usually a fan of Inceptors (not to be confused with Inceptionors which are the ones GW sends to plant messages in your dreams telling you to buy more space marines…) – in fact they may be my least favourite space marines ever. These however look excellent, I was going to say the best I’ve ever seen but given my low opinion of the models to begin with that might sound as though I’m damning them with faint praise. ;-) The Intercessors on the other hand are just outstanding – and fear not, I’m a long way from getting bored of this!
Cheers dude, I’m with you – GW are just trying too hard with Inceptors, and they don’t really work for me… much like the Aggressors, I was making the best of a bad job so I’m delighted to have produced something half decent 😁
Nice job! I’m neither a fan of the Inceptors design, but I agree, you made the most of it. I like your take on these!
Cheers dude, there are a lot of dubious minis in the Primaris range, but I did my best with them 😊

Your brilliant painting never bores, and as we’re both army builders, we are kindred spirits! Very impressive lot here.
Aw, cheers mate – having said all that about being an army painter, I may be dipping into another project over Christmas ;-)
