Repulsor Floaty Tank Post

If your Primaris are getting tired of walking to the fight, then have them show up in the new Primaris Repulsor Grav-Tank!

Get ready to flex your hobby muscles with this new kit for the Primaris Marines. This 168 component kit clocks in at $80 retail but does not have as many moving parts as the Land Raider. That being said, it is very forward thinking in terms of design and is bristling with weaponry. Now, there were a few things we liked and disliked when we looked at the instructions. We’ll let you know what those were so you can be prepared for them. Here is a quick and dirty review to give you the lowdown on what you can expect to get from this kit.

For our complete review, be sure to scroll down and press play on the full video below.

Repulsor Sprues

As you can see, the kit contains three large sprues and comes with a 100mm base and round two-part flight stand. There will be a lot of sub-assemblies with this kit and, while you may luck out with a non-mold line sprue, you will definitely be spending a good portion of your time removing mold lines. As we stated before, there are very few moving parts in this kit, which may be a good thing since there are multiple sub-assemblies to go through before you start adding on weapons, turrets, and details. This kit will take an afternoon to build so make sure you have set some time aside before you being.

Repulsor base and detail

The clear plastic flight stand is circular and its two pieces lock together. Now, it can be either glued or magnetized to the tank’s base.We won’t go over the datasheet as that has been discussed ad nauseam this past week. Suffice to say it has W16, S8, T8, and Sv+3. It is, currently, the only vehicle that is capable of transporting Primaris units.

Primaris Repulsor: $80

Primaris Repulsor

The Repulsor armoured transport is a deadly combination of manoeuvrability and raw brute force. Due to the turbine array at its rear, it has tremendous motive power, held aloft by powerful anti-gravitic generators. The Repulsor is so heavily armed and armoured that is doesn’t skim over the landscape but instead crushes the ground below it. The tank grinds forward with a deep bass thrum, reducing rock to gravel and fallen bodies to smears of gore and powdered bone.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a Space Marines Primaris Repulsor, an armoured transport not only capable of ferrying 10 Primaris Space Marines into battle, but also defending itself with the vast array of weaponry at its disposal. The Repulsor has a choice of:

– a turret-mounted heavy onslaught gatling cannon, which can be replaced with a las-talon;
– a front-mounted twin heavy bolter, which can be replaced with a twin lascannon;
– a pintle-mounted Icarus irontail heavy stubber, which can be replaced with an onslaught gatling cannon;
– a rear-mounted Icarus rocket pod, which can be replaced with an irontail heavy stubber;
– 2 krakstorm grenade launchers, which can be replaced with 2 storm bolters or 2 auto launchers.

The body of the Repulsor itself features numerous modelling options – there are 6 stowage assemblies, which are entirely modular, configurable in countless different ways with cases of grenades and rocket pods modelled open or closed. The top hatch can be modelled closed or open; should you choose the open option, you can place a Tech-marine in the hatch either pointing toward the foe or operating the pintle-mounted weapon. There are also the usual details you would expect from an Imperial craft – lights, radar arrays, huge exhaust vents and an aquila displayed proudly at the fore.

The Primaris Repulsor comes as 168 components, and includes a transfer sheet and a Citadel 100mm Round base – this features a clear hover stand, which can be set at an angle, adding a certain degree of camber to your model.

The Primaris Repulsor Grav-Tank is available now online and in local Games Workshop stores. Be sure to press play on our quick and dirty unboxing video below for the full review.
