Today we’re going to be taking another look at the Primaris Aggressor and Repulsor datasheets, leading up to their pre-order this weekend.
The new Aggressor and Repulsor are sure to add to any Space Marine army after their release. So, today we’re going to be taking a look at their datasheets again so you can start figuring out exactly where these will fit into your new lists.
Thanks to Winter SEO review video for the Codex: Space Marines, we now have a lot of datasheets and information to sift through. The Primaris Aggressors are costly, coming in at 6 power points for a unit of three and take an additional three for +12. They come with T5, W2, A2, Sv+3.
Their firepower is impressive with gauntlets that can equip auto bolters and flamerstorms. They have the option to replace their auto bolter and fragstorm launcher with the flamestorm gauntlets. Their special abilities allow them to fire twice if they have not moved during their turn including in Overwatch. They also do not have any penalties for Advancing and firing Assault weapons.Below is a quick summary of what little was known or teased about the Primaris Aggressors.
The new Primaris Aggressors look a lot like some drawings from the past we just saw again recently.
An Aggressor Squad is a Primaris Space Marine unit, that is equipped with shoulder mounted missile racks, that are reloaded from internal armour stores located within the Agressors’ Gravis power armour. They also wield Flame Gauntlets, that billow forth burning promethium.
That picture was originally on display back in 2004 during the Games Day event. Have we known about these for almost 13 years?
Winter SEO also gave us a look at the new Repulsor Grav-Tank with his review video for the Codex: Space Marines, and we now know what this tank is packing and can start planning our lists accordingly.
It has the following stats that we had been hearing about; W16, M10, with a 3+ save, plus it comes with assortment of weapons, and special rules.
Looks like units charging it must subtract 2 from their rolls made against a Repulsor. It’s Auto Launcher will force any enemies targeting it to subtract 1 from all their hit rolls for ranged weapons made against it.

Just in case you missed it, here is what we knew about the Repulsor Grav-Tank.
This new tank is one of the new armoured vehicles that accompanies the Primaris Space Marines to war. Like their arms and armour, it was forged on Mars, and is recognisably of the same STC origins as its predecessors.
Could this be ancient technology long lost and uncovered once more, or has Cawl been “tinkering” with Omnissiah-blessed technologies? This new war machine stands ready to crush its way to war alongside the tried and tested Predator and Land Raider tanks of the Space Marine Chapters.
