Yeah the statline is only one small part of the whole datasheet. No need to jump the gun. :D

GW just finished a Q&A about the new edition. This link has an unofficial summary:

Looks complete.
Very pleased with the things they said. Especially the fact that existing Marines can be upgraded into Primaris Marines in the fluff. Makes it actually more possible for GW to phase out old Space Marines over the course of the next years but also way more acceptable imo.

> Unqiue Strategems are based on main Keywords in your Detachments.

Possibly means Sept-specific strategems? Interesting.

Consolidation into combat is back... that's surely a problem for us

Our units just have to be big enough that they don't get wiped out in a single combat phase. Then we can fall back and shoot them to death. :P

Lmao you're right. Well I guess Devilfishes will have the additional note that it can't transport Battlesuits. :P

I might be misinterpreting how a keyword systems works, but couldn't the suits have something like a bulky keyword that reduces how many could fit in a transport? Or is that too close to how the old USR system worked?

Then you'd start again to look for the rule. Does bulky mean count as 2 or as 3? Or was it simply impossible?
Keywords is more open if GW wans to change something.

I'm still hoping shield drones will help us out there. Something that absorbs all these hits.
Well, now the defender does choose which models to take away, doesn't he?
