It makes sense, apparently they left a back door in the fluff for a 5 year conversion period to primaris status. I wonder if this will see a full shift to primaris tac/assault marines etc, and an eventually phase out of normal marine models. At any rate I hope characters like Ragnar, Mephiston, Azaxael etc get new models. Seems they’ve done a weird Raptor lord herald dude to oppose Calgar in this new campaign, so no immediate new Abanddon model which IMO is more urgent.
Armless Abaddon forever.
I do think it's a necessary change from a fluff point as it'd be a shame to lose so many fun characters.
The new model is sweet.
Have seen plenty of rumours that Abaddon is coming with the next campagin book.
Phasing out old marines isn't a question of maybe. It'll happen. It will be a gradual shift in the model range over the next handful of years.
