…and I never bought another “old” marine again.
It took a lot of thought, but I eventually settled on Blood Angels for this new chapter in my Adeptus Astartes hobby history. I found it fitting that I start with the same Chapter that first brought me into the hobby so many years ago…

The worrying thing I’ve found, is that the more time I’ve spent painting Primaris marines, the more I’ve gotten used to their size and regular sized Astartes seem smaller and smaller.
Agreed – I’ve put these Primaris marines next to standard Blood Angels marines and the older marines look almost cartoonish by comparison, with their odd proportions and more squat poses. I highly doubt I’ll be purchasing any more standard marines from here on out (not that I don’t already have a ton of unpainted boxes of standard marines just sitting around).
All according to GW’s plan, I guess…. 🙂
Thanks again for reading!
I know what you mean. At first I didn’t think too much of it, but now I’m starting to feel like regular marines are a lot smaller and look quite a bit older. I’ve still got plenty to get painted and I still have some purchases in mind, so I’m not too bothered at the moment, but yeah, I can see how GW could easily switch things over to the newer marines and fade out the rest.
