@tekton What writer?
Cause it seemed pretty clear to me that the GK Techmarine had a servo harness built in, and then even following Index - GK Techmarines can't replace servo arms.
So they show BA, DA and SW infiltrators

So open to all chapters it seems
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 05 15:08
So I’d say it’s safe to assume they’ll be available to all chapters
Hopefully I don’t have to run just a Phobos detachment though
I still am not really keen on the infiltrators

and i'm guessing there's still a question mark over DW?
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 05 16:24
Probably :/
Until there's a shot of the army comp page

Yeah, doesn't feel good though, shoulder pads are not interchangeable from the limited sprue shots seen so far...
There are transfers for every chapter apart from Deathwatch

Also, now I want to know what is in the new campaign book

I'd be very sad if DW doesn't get the phobos boys
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 05 21:14
yay! I fixed my bug
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 05 21:14
not because they're the new hotness
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 05 21:15
and yes, me too
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 05 21:15
but simply because having the operator chapter not having the operator marines is pants on head level derp
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD

Sprue shots should be taken with salt.
Remember it's a box game.
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 05 21:17
yeah
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 05 21:17
So there are little to no options or poses
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 05 21:18
well, they were saying it would be more wake the dead, which was full multipart
but this seems more DI/Soul Wars than wake the dead

I'm getting it anyway
:smile:
I decided I like the models enough, so... I'm going to pre-order with my FLGS at £80
and split with a buddy, so for £40 I'll get 19 nu marines
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 05 21:41
I’m actually going to hold off I think
Wait for the individual kits to come out
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 05 21:42
but, but, but...!! the SAVINGS, think of the SAVINGS!!!!!!!!

Because I’m thinking for the jump duders I’m just gunna graft their weapon arms onto inceptors
And I’m still not sold on the infiltrate-y reivers
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 05 21:45
the jump dudes are my least favourite, but I do like the rest
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR
Mar 05 21:46
I think the best shop job I've seen for the jump guys was the 3D printed jump packs combined with standard riever legs
so they're in a braced firing stance flat on a base, but obviously flight capable to reposition
and is what I'll probably do with them if DW get them
Simon Porter
@FarseerVeraenthis
Mar 05 21:48
if they are not DW'able, I'll use them in my Dark Angels
WindstormSCR
@WindstormSCR

tbh the ones DW need the most are the supressors/eliminators
since currently we don't have a good way to handle characters besides removing the wrap, and the supressors look to be excellent for dealing with transports and light vehicles
