    Well I'll leave a teaser here and come back and edit it to fill it in when I get time later. Sorry blokes, I just dont have time to redo it all now...

    These are all wip and no release timing is available. Codex SM is not underway, so these may be a splash release or could be a long way off.


    New tactical squad. Hvy flamer. Mk 8 style
    Edit: there are more mk 8 bits here than before, but there are still "beakies" too. Includes many options not released before in plastic, including a Hvy flamer, a backpack style (read devastator) missile launcher w flakk missile, slings on bolters, power weapon options. Basically think of all the blinged out options you get w a BA, SW, GK box and now apply it to tactical marines. Poses are all standing, but they aren't as static.

    New assault squad. New jump packs. New weapon options
    Edit: retooling similar to tac squad. The jump packs are all new, but don't get knickers in a twist cause they are the same style as current ones. They just look better cause the seam is not there. New cc options in the sprue include thss and lc. There is a few new options in here I can't reveal.

    New librarian mini sprue. Codex options included
    Edit: this is where the librarian/chaplain kit I saw a long time ago went. Has a force sword or staff, has combi weapons, has pistols. Two heads. All in mini sprue. It's 2 mini sprues. Only options from current codex not present are jump pack, bike, or TA. No info on where chaplain went.

    New Techmarine mini sprue. Conversion Beamer.
    Edit: very similar to current tech ax Techmarine. Layered body. Has tech ax, tech sword, plasma pistol, combi weapons, couple variants on servo arms, and conversion Beamer. 2 mini sprues.

    Edit: on both these mini sprue characters the heads and weapons are compatible with existing line. But the arms/bodies are unique.

    New scout box. New sculpts. Combined boxes. New options.
    Edit: includes some new scout only weapons. Heads are less bulky. All codex options present in one box.

    New flyer. Interceptor/bomber. Flat but boxy. Storm raven sized. No transport. No hover. Heavy assault cannon and ff missiles. Or bombs and servo drones in gun pods.
    Edit: shares wing/engine aesthetics of storm raven, but fuselage is flatter. Wings not as bent. No thrusters in wingtips. Two tail options, one for each build.

    New scout transport. Like Tauros (FW ig) but open wagon style. Halo warthog mashed w rhino. Pintle TL HB.
    Edit: rumored rule only will allow pintle weapon when unit is embarked. Fast vehicle. 4 buggy style wheels. Rider models/bits compatible with new scout box. Roughly rhino sized. For Baja race fans think armored sandrail.

    Cheers. Like I mentioned, these are likely a long way off, and I will fill in more later.

    Cheers

    Some of these i can see.....Since let's be honest the FW heresy book opened up a bunch of new idea's for gw to throw in a white dwarf for armies or the new Marine Codex's...... But for some reason i can't see them getting the all flamer or special weapon units for codex chapters at least =/ maybe Salamanders, Blood Angels & space puppys though.

    Although its nice to hear all the lovely things my PA friends will be getting, i do think as the poster stated this wont be here for quite some time.

    I already own thirty tactical marines and ten assault marines, so this isn't as big a "yay!" as it could have been - that said, if these new boxes have lots of bits, then I'd certainly be tempted to pick one up in order to make some new Sergeants and special/heavy weapon options (baby needs more plasma guns). A new librarian sounds decent too. So yay!

    If I can put a flamer + heavy flamer in a tactical squad then my Knights of the Ardent Flame would be a happy chapter indeed...

    Also more MK8 would be pretty cool.

    What I still want to know about most is how the chapters will be represented, and which chapters will get rules in the new codex...

    Other than that, this is all cool. I like the idea of heavy flamer tacs. Plasma tacs for heavy infantry/light vehicles, flame tacs to take the lead and burn light infantry. I see many tactical options.

    Also, that is not a squad you want to charge. 2d3 auto-hits in Overwatch? On top of the rest of the squad double-firing their boltguns? Ouch.

    Yes, but when you own 300 Tac/Assault marines, this is huge... Adding to the army will actually give you different options/look/poses to work with :-)

    I am happy to hear about this kind of stuff for my chapter.
