Default New apocalypse - wishlists

So with rumours of a new apocalypse book this year - what is on the wishlist?

Any units you want to see the back of forever? any old epic units you want to see included?

How should it work with flyers? more superheavy flyers? more options to kill them?

a decent ork formation would be nice, aswell as a baneblade sized super heavie, similar to a battlefortress with more options to make looted varients of all the baneblade vareints.

or a formation of tanks piloted by grots for the extra bs.....

I'm really hopping for some interesting rules concerning flyers, they need to be squadrons which run aerial strafes across the battlefield, would make leaving stuff out in the open far more hazardous and lead to an additional tactical consideration.

now that would be wicked.

could almost do a focus fire thing for the dakkajet, something similar to the supa gatler, keeps shooting and going on to the next lot of troops untill ya roll a double 6 or something for how many hits are scored.

Shit yeah! Love this idea, the idea of a flight of 3 Marauder Destroyers, in formation, carpet bombing everything in sight and then coming back to strafe the board would be a sight to see.

I'd like to see Termites and more sub terrian units appear/reappear. Rules focussing on titan "only" battles would be great. Also: Knights, bring back the Knights!

Not that bothered about new super heavies - FW already have plenty of those. Would be nice to see some concept of height in the flyer rules though.

I want to see the back of Titan Holo-Fields, and see them changed into something else. As it stands, the whole 'fragility' argument doesn't hold water as the Eldar Titans are pretty ridiculously tough for their offensive output - 4 Str D Large Blasts and 36" movement over other units makes them the Heldrakes of Apocalypse.

I'd like to see something new and innovative for Space Marines, rather than a bunch of assets that are cool but fail in practice - Last Stand is a great idea, but it's hardly viable when someone drops a Belly Gun and your heroes are all killed in the first shot of the game. Legion Relic is quite but not big enough to make a difference (6 Str 10 AP2 attacks on one dude with T4 and no Eternal Warrior or Hammer Blow/Flank March, your choice)

More Chapter-specific formations for Marines - not necessarily new units, just ways to make unique army lists. Obviously this would have to be limited to the First Founding Chapters, plus maybe some additional famous ones like the Black Templars or Crimson Fists.
