Primaris Marines of Many Colours

White Dwarf editor Matt Keefe returns to give us another exclusive sneak peek at what you can expect to find in this month’s White Dwarf, available from Friday the 16th of June.

Matt: A Thousand Chapters, Quite a Few Colours…

Just a few more days to wait for the brand-new Warhammer 40,000 and, of course, the brand-new Primaris Space Marines. One of the most asked questions of late is “Can these Space Marines join any Chapter?” to which the answer (as you’ve hopefully heard by now) is “Of course!”.

Still, nothing demonstrates that quite like a load of brilliantly painted models in different colours, so for this month’s issue the White Dwarf team rounded up a few of the finest examples of the new Primaris Space Marines painted by the likes of ’Eavy Metal, the Army Painting Team, Warhammer TV’s Duncan Rhodes, and more.

Paul Norton (who also painted a Blood Ravens Space Marine which you can see in June’s White Dwarf) painted this Blood Angels Intercessor. Paul used his favoured techniques of some very fine edge highlights to show off the hardness of the power armour. The cold black and silver on the bolt rifle add some contrast to the bright, vibrant red.

Steve Bowerman, from the Design Studio’s Army Painting Team, painted a squad of Imperial Fists as part of his growing force. The Veteran Sergeant wears a red helmet bearing a white stripe – insignia long familiar from the Codex Astartes.

Warhammer TV’s own Duncan Rhodes painted a squad of Intercessors to add to his Salamanders army. As some Primaris Space Marines form new units added to existing companies, they can sometimes occupy squad numbers above 10. Duncan chose to make his squad the 13th squad, and came up with markings for their kneepads by cutting the numbers from a transfer sheet separately and putting them on the models side by side!

So, that’s red, green and yellow covered. Check out the new issue of White Dwarf, to see even more – Dark Angels, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Ultramarines, Imperial Fists, Black Templars, Raven Guard and more – and to read more about how they were painted. Then it’s time to decide how you’re going to paint your own Primaris Space Marines!
