Holding The Line: Intercessor Box Set Review

Primaris Intercessors Box Post

The new multi-part Intercessor Box Set is here with all new poses and weapon specs. Let’s see what they will be using to hold the line!

The Intercessor Box Set comes with 10 miniatures and retails for $60. This multi-part kit comes with new poses that were not seen with the Intercessors that were included in the Dark imperium set. They have several weapon options to choose from, and also come with a host of customization options to add to the determined and daunting assignment of holding a point or anchoring an advance. Ammunition packs, bare-headed Sergeants with command gestures, and drawn combat knives are some of the optional components you will find.

Here is a sample of our quick and dirty review to give you the lowdown on what you can expect to see in this kit.

As you can see, this kit provides the Intercessors with several different weapon option loadouts and customization options for your 10-man or 2 5-man squads. They can equip the standard bolt rifle, stalker bolt rifle, auto boltgun, and auxiliary grenade launcher. Each option has it own unique bits to make it standout. The amount of detail and posing with this kit in terms of stances and arm positioning is great.

In order to achieve the varying stances, the leg options will attach to the hip joints which are port of the torso bit. The arm bits are varied and allow you to pose each weapon differently.

Moving on to stats and costs, the Intercessor clocks in at 20 points per model, which isn’t bad at all since their wargear is rather inexpensive. The stalker pattern is 2 points per, the auto bolt pattern is 1 point per, and the auxiliary grenade launcher is 11 points per.

Now, the auxiliary is limited to one model in a 5-man squad or 2 in a 10-man squad. The grenade launcher gives the model the ability to increase the range of any grenade weapons they have from 6″ to 30″.

Primaris Intercessors: $60

Primaris Intercessors01

A strong core of reliable and adaptable warriors that can lay down fire while advancing or holding down terrain is an invaluable aid to any tactician. In the case of strike forces bolstered by Primaris battle-brothers, this role is fulfilled by the Intercessor Squads. Capable of levelling overlapping salvoes of firepower, these squads often form the flexible fighting core of newly-founded Primaris Chapters – though of course many established Chapters have eagerly leveraged their abilities, fielding them alongside Tactical Squads.

This multi-part plastic kit contains the components necessary to assemble a set of 10 Primaris Intercessors. Wearing Mk X Tacticus armour in order to take advantage of its protection and mobility, they prove to be reliable and adaptable warriors, each armed with bolt rifles. Their bolt rifles can be 1 of 3 variants – the standard bolt rifle with sickle magazine, auto bolt rifle with overcharger and box magazine, or stalker bolt rifle with longer-range sight and straight magazine. There are 16 right-hand shoulder pads decorated with the iconography of the Intercessors – enough to cover each of the variant arms, including 2 with an open radio panel, 2 gesturing for their squad to halt, 2 holding combat knives and 2 firing bolt pistols. There are a total of 36 different heads available in this kit, covering helmeted and bare options.

The models can be assembled as either a 10-man squad, a squad of 9 Intercessors with a Sergeant or 2 separate 5-man squads, each with a Sergeant of their own. The Sergeants feature unique heads, with a helmet mag-locked to their belt, and unique tilting plates to help them stand out. Reflecting their battlefield versatility, the Intercessors come with lots of extra details to be added to their armour – 12 pistol holsters (2 empty, for the Intercessors actually wielding them), 10 ammunition and grenade pouches, 6 combat knife scabbards (4 empty), 4 single grenade pouches and 4 bolt pistol ammunition pouches.

The Primaris Intercessors come as 266 components, and are supplied with 10 Citadel 32mm Round bases and a transfer sheet.
