Up coming Space Marine wish list

Post  Commander James of the Ul on Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:09 am

So I'm kinda interested to get back into my Blood Ravens in the fall.  And since Space Marines are next up I was wondering what the wish lists are.

Here is mine
1 Phil Kelly can't write the codex.  He's just not a SM codex kinda guy...
2 Plastic sternguard kit.  With the descent options.  combi meltas, flamers, plasma
3 Base cost predators and land Raiders, and with all the otions.  ( all assault cannon landraider or predator )
4 A Flyer that doesn't suck...  Rewrite the stormtalon or create a new one.
5 Big ass walker,  MC or armor, I don't care,  but give me lots of options

Well there it is.  Thoughts

It's a Matt Ward book again. || Edit: Kelly did a great job on Eldar, it's just the Chaos Space Marine book that's terrible.

YES plastic sternguard with options please! Same for vanguard vets. And even though he might have goofed on the chaos book, Phil Kelly is still by far my favorite book writer, and im going off his older stuff too (orks, dark eldar, space wolves) though dont get me wrong the new Eldar book was almost perfect.

re sm wish list

Phill did okay with the eldar.  But there are clear losers.  Swooping hawks, banshees, and a armor 10 flyer for a 160pt base. 

Beau.  lol  I just think it would be awesome to get a armor 14 box and put the options on it as I see fit.  Like a sky fire auto cannon land raider.  Great for anti flyer and anti personal.  Or a center assault cannon and twin linked plasma cannon side sponsors.  

I'm glad Matt Ward is writing the SM codex.  Just hope they leave the fine casts in the art studio and put plastic models with options on the store shelves.

I would like to see a Land Raider that is customizable for XX points per gun, but I cant see GW putting out a model like that.  I have always wanted to swap out the Hvy Bolter on the "basic" land raider for the Assault Cannon option.

I doubt that GW will abandon the Storm Talon.  It is an "estabilished" product, with a plastic kit.  New Rules???  Maybe.  Is it really that much worse then the Dark Angels Flyer??

The plastic Sternguard would be cool.  I think it would fit into their line rather well....Really just an 5 man squad sprue and the a commander weapons upgrade sprue, plus maybe a hvy weapons sprue.  It would be a hugely popular kit just for the bits. 

As for the "Monsterous Creature" type guy....I have heard rumours of a large Contemptor Dreadnought-like walker.  I would really like this.  But they may also fill that slot with the Terminus Land Raider...again...an exisitng kit (might be in hybernation, but it is around).  I do expect they will do something " big and flashy" to get everyone attention on the new model, but I am not sure what it will be.  A mini-titan would be really cool.  Maybe a Knight Titan or Imperial Titan??  Poking around on google, there are already a few kits and rules floating around....not sure if they were "official Forgeworld" stuff or just someone's moke up.
