Primaris Space Marine Paint Planner

The good chaps over at Games Workshop marketing have just released a bit of fluff on the Ultima Founding, the latest crop of Space Marine chapters.

These are all based around the Primaris Space Marines, so expect your current Marines to fade away. Again, not a bad thing, as it's just a shift to True Scale Space Marines that still lets you play with your old stuff whilst you transition.

To help you buy their new models, Games Workshop have also given you a nifty line drawing of a Primaris Space Marine, so you can plan your new Chapter.

Now I'm certain they didn't intend to add all those little gaps in the lines making it hard for you to use simple drawing editors to plan your marines on computer, nor did they realise how difficult it would be to do so on .pdf format.

So I fixed it for them. Here's the same thing with the gaps filled in, and in easy to edit .jpeg format. Don't worry Gee Dubs... Tabletop Teacher's got your back!

In all seriousness, I've done this for my student neophytes to plan their paint schemes. I sincerely don't know why Games Workshop decided to make computer editing more challenging for people, and I can only assume it was done for some kind of Copyright reasons. But it might just be some more benign reasons, such as a dodgy re-scale. Ether way, if someone from GW wants me to take it down, just let me know.

Until next time!

Thanks for reading.

  1. Anyone got a good app for this I'm on a tablet

    1. If I see any pop up I'll make a post about it. For now, all I have to offer are the old Space Marine Painters over on Bolter and Chainsword (

      A bit clunky on a tablet, but it's fairly comprehensive.

  2. any chance you know of a Stormcast painter aswell ?
    seems like a missed opportunity by GWs in my eyes...

    1. You know what? You're right. Post incoming.

  3. So what are you actually using to color in this line sketch? As when I use MS paint, so something like it, it doesn't fill in anything other than tiny dots or a random large splotch.

    1. MS Paint, but having just copied it from the web page and tried it I get the same issue. Must be the artefacts from using .jpeg. When I get a chance I'll re-upload as a .png, see if that helps.

      Thanks for letting me know! I usually send the original out as an email to students, but something must have gone wrong with the upload.

    2. Strange, but thank you so much, I really appreciate it! Been trying to find a source that works, so your work on this is greatly appreciated! If emailing works more efficiently, and you are okay with it, I'd very much be willing to give you mine. Totally understand if that is only viable for you students.
