I'd kind of like to see new sculpts of the Khorne Berserkers...ones that are the same proportions as the rest of the current range. Doubt they'll do that though. *sigh*

Everything I've heard about Chaos terminators has been that it's going to be a plastic upgrade sprue for 15 bucks for the regular Space Marine Terminator box. It'd kind of be preferable to see that, really.

Brimstone of Warseer had this to say about upcoming codices. He is usually fairly accurate so it bear repeating:

Quote:
2007
March - Dark Angels
Late Summer/UKGD - Codex Apocalypse
Q4/Christmas - Codex Chaos Vol. 1 - Undivided

2008
- Codex Orks
- Codex Dark Eldar
- Codex Space Marines Redux

TBC - Necrons
TBC - Blood Angels
TBC - Space Wolves
TBC - Ordo Xenos
TBC - Codex Chaos Vol. 2 - Khorne
TBC - Codex Chaos Vol. 3, 4 & 5 Nurgle / Tzeentch / Slaanesh

Again these are estimates only and should be taken with a healthy degree of scepticism

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I really, really doubt that they're going to make five Chaos codexes. Everything I've heard has been that they're going to do two seperate volumes, the first for Chaos Space Marines, and the second for Lost and the Damned type units.

Here's a good post I found over at 40K Online:

yeah i've seen that aswell though i'm doublting it massivly the reason is that about a year ago the powers of the studio (i was inside the studio asking btw) stated they are doing one SM codex a year - or near enough. Its an almost golden, cast in stone thing as marines = SHED LOADS OF CASH!
Now re-releasing an already exsiting dex only makes money by introducing new units to the game. Ok a new SM dex could introduce some new models and maybe unit. BUT thats what the other dex's are doing anyway. Plus they acutually generate more £ as the conversion kits are big sellers (the upgrade kits sold like hot cakes for the BT's). Also re doing a codex that is pretty new means that ppl are only going to add in a few new things, an older dex gets more ppl buying more models.
The studio is driven by the business (not ppl wanting changes as some wold love to believe), ok marines are the big seller so you would think a new dex would make more money. Actually thats wrong, the marines will sell regardless of how new or old the dex is. It could be 15 years old and they would still out sell all the other 40k races.
This is why it really feels like mistaken identity and this "SM redux" should read Blood Angles or Space Wolves.
