So here it is - the new Space Marine Tactical Squad is out - along with all the other Space Marine stuff - and we've got our hands on it to break down for you... just for you! Not because I wanted them...
Below you will find some of the new bits that stood out to me - some a surprise, some exactly what we had expected
Like the legs, lots of studs, and a newer shape of respirator on the MKVII helmets with leads me to wonder if they are meant to be MKVIII of just a different pattern...
In conclusion, if you have the older box, it's nothing super-new.
The retooling is nice and crisp though and they have squeezed a lot on the sprues (3 in total).
As far as bits goes, this has a lot to it.
Look, I don't have to sell you on this - they're Marines! If you want them, you will buy them BUT what I can say, is that Games Workshop have done a very nice job,
We don't really lose anything, and gain quite a bit in return.
In this artcile, you would have seen my reference to MKVIII Space Marines - THIS (right) is supposedly a MKVIII Space Marine by the master himself, Jes Goodwin.
For some reason they haven't been mass produced by Games Workshop, and the ones that have seem to vary - but this is the definitive picture by Jes Goodwin.
