Hello everyone !!
Twitch interview with jes is on going !
First phase is complete (starter)
Started 3 years ago on primaris
Jes was super stressed about but happy it got well received.
jes like his marines "stripped" of fioriture
MK10 armor were designed with their role in mind.
They designed the starter kit to be "plain" to make room for future characters. Jes explain that if they started with a lot of details, specials characters would be overburden.
Jes making joke about possible salamander presence.
jes may have lost(stolen?) sketchbook for the Primaris.
Intercessor : Basic trooper, helmet and shoulder are same size of the old marines. Added some details between knee and waist.
Some tech bitz ,like plug for blood transfusion, com unit on the sergeant wrist, gorget for more defense style, Ankle protection. Some of these design were already drawn for MK8.
They played alot with the waist/legs joints to give them dynamic poses (i think we can expect solid option when the multipart kit are released.)
The idea was make small difference in design on the bolt pistol, some have a shorter clip or bigger nozzle.
A bite more decoration but not overdone.
The rank is not new but come from RT era. the Painting on his helmet come from an very old painting guide.
Multiple option of face mask, respirator, face.
Gravis captain :
gravis armor is a layered armor, the armor is bigger because there are more layer and not because it just a whim.
Different mk10 by design, adapted for flying tactical assault. They are not designed to be assault marines. They are drop trooper.
It's an heavy armor, mix of grave chute and flying armor, bunch of renforced bitz. The weapons design is supposed to reflect the rules and the role they have in mind.
Plasma gun units :
Same sort of armor as tactical,
They have multipart facemask/helmet/respirator options.
Dread is a framework, Different style of armors for different roles.
there could be option for opened cockpit or sarcophagus (but maybe it was only by design)
Repulsor tank :
it's not a grav tank, it's nothing like a speeder.
It's a powerful tank not an agile one. It's a brutal brick.
There are lof of gothic details inside and on the back.
It's not a MBT but more a transporter with support pack sculted on.
