I'm not entirely against Primaris, and think that GW was basically screwed one way or the other. They either just made Marines true scale, and got waves of complaints about trying to gouge players by making them replace all their armies... or they introduced a new 'type' of Astartes and slowly phased out the old ones... and got waves of complaints about trying to gouge players by making them replace all their armies. Oh or they ignored the Truessxale problem and, you guessed it... got waves of complaints.
For what it's worth, I think the approach was the best option, though I'm not fond of some of the stylistic decisions made.
The two things I would change are...
Newcrons (seems to be a popular one). I don't MIND Newcrons, but I lament the loss of the C'tan as any sort of threatening enemy. Using the C'tan and the old cults to them as a way to break up the homogeneity of the Necrons dynasties, creating internal factions that want to restore the C'tan as their gods, would help diversify the whole faction IMO.
And Chaos. They actually seem to be moving away from this in the narrative, but I've always hated the whole Chaos = The Warp approach. Chaos as simply the most powerful faction WITHIN the Warp is fine, but making it the expression of the Warp it's self is heavily limiting and boring.
