problem with rumours like this is they have become harder and harder to dismiss when you consider GWs almost erratic releases in the last 2 years, people (including me) said GW would never release a starter set with chapter specific marine in it, well we know how that turned out, given that they did, it wouldn't be totally out of the question to do it again as the sales for DA and chaos marines will be starting to drop off as they are far from the most current armies, if Orks are coming this year and Blood angels, it would make perfect business sense to move to a new starter set and as sales potential goes Blood angels are far better sellers than DA and Orks will always sell well if they have an upto date codex as they are a very popular army that suffers from getting left at the bottom of the pile to update too often.
That said this would be a totally new direction for GW, but then again they have been doing a lot of new direction stuff lately so you cant rule it out, its just crazy enough to happen, timing makes sense too, september is GWs regular slot for drumming up sales for 40k and the march into autumn/winter period.
the more i contemplate it, the more it makes sense,it costs feck all to produce,it refreshes a core product that introduces people to the game while also being attractive to players who already are playing, gives a massive shot in the arm to two popular armies. Just not sure of the composition of the units, seems unlikely they would put 2 jump pack units in the box and the fortification seems a bit vague and unlikely, scenery takes up some serious sprue space and adds alot of weight (seriously weigh a cities of death box and then weight another 3 sprue kit its three times the weight or more).
