The new Primaris Reivers datasheet was spotted over on Miniwars, but the one downside is it’s in Spanish.
That’s alright though, we’re going to translate as much as we can.
This unit contains 1 Reiver Sergeant and 2 Reivers. (so it’s not a minimum squad of 5 in a 3 box form, sorry internet haters)
Each miniature is equipped with a heavy bolter gun, a shock grenade, fragmentation grenades, and krak grenades.
With the shock grenades, overwatch units are going to have a tough time getting Reivers down before they reach them. The shock grenades are going to subtract 1 from their hit rolls on top of preventing them from firing overwatch. This is going to be very useful when dealing with an army that has a lot of shooting units. They have 2 Wounds, 3+ WS/BS, Strength 4, Toughness 4, Leadership 7, and 2 attacks.
The Sergeant is exactly the same, except he get 3 Attacks and has a Leadership of 8. They have the And They Will Know No Fear and Terror Troops abilities. The Terror Troops ability, subtracting 1 from their Leadership. This is going to come in clutch when they are taking their moral tests, that could be the difference between the unit making it to the next round, and being taken out right then and there.
One thing to note is the Keywords. The Reivers do not have the <Chapter> Keyword, instead it has been replaced with Ultramarines.
Games Workshop already teased the points for the Reivers, as well as their weapons below.
You’ll be able to find rules and points for the Poxwalkers, Plague Marines and Intercessors in their respective indexes, while Reivers will have their rules in their box. You’ll also be able to add these guys to your matched play games and your Space Wolves, Dark Angels, Blood Angels and Deathwatch armies with our rules PDF.
The Reiver Squad is coming in at 18 points per model, so a squad of five will end up costing you 90 points, with the heavy bolt pistol and shock grenades being free to take. Once again the Primaris Captain is going to cost you 87 points and the Librarian is coming in at 93 points.
All in all these models aren’t too expensive to add to your army, and the Reivers are definitely seeming like they’re going to be worth the points you pay per model. We’ll find out for sure though when they reveal the rules.
There’s a couple special rules to note if you want to take these models in your other factions. Dark Angels Primaris Librarians gain the Deathwing keyword and the Unforgiven Ability. Space Wolves Primaris Librarians generate their powers from the Tempestas discipline instead on the Librarius discipline.
How are you going to use these new models in your army? Let us know in the comments below.
