I'm pretty sure it's just pre-orders on the 31st, but that's the day the WD drops, the curtain falls and he can pour out his deepest, darkest feelings about everything. And talk about the new Marines.

yeah when I talked to the local GW manager last week, pre-orders is what I got told on the 31st .

So I was talking with one of my local Warhammer sellers about my order of new SM but I want also old Vanguard and MK2 veterans. Unfortunately he orders things only once in a month and I am afraid that vanguard and maybe even mk2 disappear with new models. I wanted to buy it from GW but more you order, bigger the shipping is and it was 17£ for those 2 boxes.
So how to get models which disappear from GW site ? I mean is it possible somehow to get it from GW other way ? I would rather refrain to get it from ebay or other shops though and do one order only.

Do they not usually keep old models like that on the web store. Like if you go to space marines they have loads of old models still on sale for direct order. The sternguard and vanguard might get added there.

I know. Actually MK1-2 and Tyrranic are alternatives. So I hope they keep them. Unfortunately, not sure about Vanguard/Sternguard when new kits hit the shelves though and have no one to ask expect here.

So, with the mention of no interceptor, curious to know does this mean they are purely anti-flyer with just skyfire or that they will have a skyfire mode or none of the above?

“Insane? You dare to claim that we are insane? I find this very amusing. You see, there is no such thing as sanity. Why? Because the nature of sanity depends on the context the term is used. A man living in squalor may call the rich man insane for wasting food, while the rich man in return may call the poor insane for living off his waste. You slaughter thousands and squander the resources of planets on foolish incursions to please a corpse and his corrupted followers. And you have the nerve to call me insane? Oh poor misguided individual, pray to whatever deity you serve and hope he is merciful, for those who find themselves trapped in the spiders web have little else they can do”

I don't know yet honestly. I've been waiting for 40k Radio to start answering questions again so I can ask if either has a Groundfire mode.

with a skyfire and ground fire mode i can see the hunter having a nice little place in an army. With that armourbane it should take out flyers quite effectively and engage vehicles if no flyers available... and if none of the above are avail you have a s7 ap2 gun with 60" range so a good 2+ save killer
