Always a fun range of minis to paint!

I know the new Primaris marines have split opinion, but I find them very nice sculpts. Crisp mouldings and better proportions than the original Astartes.

 

One thing which does baffle me is the proportions between shoulder height and head/neck on the older models, especially with Terminators. They look as if their neck must be roughly where a real human's lungs are. Art showing them with their armour off shows roughly normal human proportions (just bigger). All GW needed to to was either lower the shoulders or raise the head slightly.

Well, my minis are all Rogue Trader era.  Lovely plastic beaky Space Marines that would probably pass for Ratling Power Armour these days; plastic Terminators from Space Hulk that might be down to Marine height or less now, treasured Squats on bikes, and a scratch-built Grav Attack the most common AFV in the Imperium!
