Default Rumors About Spearhead??

I just recieved the newest newsletter from GW with the new expansion called 'Spearhead' being revealed in the May's edition of White Dwarf. I'm just curious to now if anyone close to GW sources have heard any rumours to what exactly this is all about??? Huge Tank Battle Sounds Awesome!!!

Gather your tanks and ready your lascannons in June the pages of White Dwarf magazine and games-workshop.com join forces to bring you a whole new expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Spearhead.

Spearhead is a new way to play Warhammer 40,000 that enables you to unleash exciting tank battles and daring breakthrough missions on the table top, bringing the full mechanised fury of the 41st Millennium to bear in your games. June's White Dwarf will contain the main part of the supplement, including new rules, missions and plenty of inspirational hobby advice. Alongside this, games-workshop.com will feature additional material for registered members such as details for how to assemble your Spearhead formations along with even more painting, modelling and collecting tips.

As if a whole new Expansion wasn't exciting enough, it's going to be accompanied by a range of new miniatures including some stunning new plastic kits more details of these kits, and the Spearhead Expansion, will follow in May's issue of White Dwarf and on games-workshop.com in due time.
Thats the e-mail he is referring too. Seems like a game mode that allows for tank spam, either higher points cap or lower tank cost, tank spam with limited choices in other categories

I's a GW attempt to toss out some rules to get people to buy more tanks. My guess is that they spun up too many tanks for Apocalypse and now they need to clear their warehouse. Locally the Apocalypse hype is wearing down - not sure if this is happening globally or not - so Spearhead may get people buying tank kits again.

On the plus side, there are going to be new tank kits coming out. Hopefully some more of the IG tank variants. I've also heard about some new Predator variants as well, all plastic Fire Prisms, stuff like that. So it looks like all the races might get a slice of the Spearhead pie.
