space marine rumors

Post  dusktiger on Tue May 05, 2015 11:05 am

this is probably the SM release wave we've heard hints about:
The latest round of Space Marine rumors are doing the rounds.  Come see what new kits the Astartes are bringing!

via Steve the Warboss 5-4-2015
Chapter-specific Boxed Sets coming alongside new Space Marine Codex:
-Ultramarines Sternguard Squad
-Raven Guard Assault Squad
-White Scars Bike Squad
-Salamanders Devastator Squad
via RR on 5-2-2015
“June 13th sees new Adeptus Astartes Codex release with two vehicle boxes. New land raider command variant included and new rhino command variant. Ornate design on additional armour plates etc. More marine kits to follow.

The codex sees predators/whirlwinds/vindicators as 1-3 options. No surprise.
The codex sees land raider squadrons and huge bonus to ignoring damage when part of them.”
 
After codex Craftworld, seeing the older Marine vehicle vehicles move to squadrons is not surprise.  Forgeworld has been making command variants of the Land Raider and the Rhino for years now (see below)
With a rumored release date of June 13, this would appear to fit right in front of the rumored WFB 9th Edition reboot.
GW sure seems intend on jam-packing as much high interest 40K items as they humanly can in their end of year Q4 right before the WFB re-launch.

I'm really torn. I don't see a real benefit to squadrons, and the codex seems fine as is. I'm hoping by and large it's the same as 6th , with a decision style FOC.
I see core being 2 tacts, a capt, 1 scouts , 1 dev or assault squad

Command I can see a librarius or a Libby/chap/techmarine combo

As Black Templar get folded into the previous book, they get pushed back out in this one. Fun times.
