Hi Guys and Gals. It appears that earlier rumors of 6th edition being that terrain edition may very well come to fruition. From what I can gather from having a quick glance over the relevant thread at one of the other forums (I won't name which one as I'm not in the business of promoting the competition, having said that however I do believe in credit where credits due when it comes to proper news and rumors, but in this case these tidbits are people making guesses with someone who's "in the know" commenting on on their validity as opposed to proper rumors).
Basically the consensus is that the dead Imperial Guardsmen at the base of the trenchwall are indeed part of one solid piece and a molded in place, the pieces of the terrain kit will be made of plastic as opposed to resin (no real surprise there), and finally the rules for the trench system will be available in White Dwarf, but will not be part of a full expansion to the game. Also it is rumored that some xenos style terrain will be made available down the track, but take this with the usual dose of salt.
And last but not least here's a picture from the 6th ed CSM codex of some Cadians manning the trenches and about to be assaulted from behind buy some Night LOrds Warp Talons, courtesy of Dakka.
We don't need to use any military force to defeat the imperium, we'll just send GW legal at them. As soon as they see the first sign of a thunderhawk gunship, their IP infringement addled brains will go into meltdown - they'll smash everything out of the sky with cease and desist letters.
