I think people are jumping the gun with BT here. GW needed to do something about the number of codexes. There were just too many Power armour dexes out there. So a switch to include BT in the main marine codex is a good option. Remember they were only a supplement when they first arrived so switching back into the main dex makes sense.

I think you will still be able to field a characterful bunch of fanatics the same as when Codex Armageddon came out.

Looking at all the rumours so far I am far more encouraged they have given something to Marines since the 4th edition 'dex. People can now choose Ultras/vanilla marines and not just get a plain dish of power armour and bolters. Not sure about salamanders yet. I have those as a succesor chapter for my main marine army, but I am not so melta heavy I need to stick to them if I want to switch back to an IF based chapter.

Thanks for the good work coalating all the rumours Zion.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

Tbh I don't get what all the fuss is about with the BT players. Yes you may lose vows but you get updated more than ever, have access to all the newest gear and units now.

If I'm honest I have no clue which chapter I'd like to go for now. I was 99% going to be a sallie but seeing the ultramarine chapter tactics and seeing alot of info on the BT's I'm more and more torn between those 2 chapters. Decisions decisions

Yeah jury is out for me. I'm doing a new chapter for the Codex so I will wait to see what fits my playstyle/fluff.

Same here. I'm actually waiting for the book to issue so I'll know if the 18 bikes, 3 Attack Bikes, and 5 Landspeeders I have will end up black and with my Ravenwing -OR- white and as a White Scars army.

Here's hoping for a good result
I've got one speeder at the minute, but another two lined up for construction at some point

I'm curious to see if the Landspeeder Squadron grows in size the same as the Ravenwing. Plus, I'm not too keen on the thought of a Biker Captain unlocking only one bike squad for troops.

Why, how big are the RW squadrons?

Yeah, that's a bit gash to be fair.

"Take your all your bikes, Fellow-Captain."
