Those two if true will make me have a ad mech ally.

I have some infos for you about the recent Stormtrooper sighting:

A lot of the bits described (respirators, plants, NVGs, some of the heads, some of the CC weapons, etc) were actually looted from other plastic kits (Command Squad and the like) and won't be on the sprue for the new box. They were used to create some kit-bash conversions to show what can be done with the new set and a bit box.

The described "Inquisitor" with a greatcoat over carapace armor is an option for the Sergeant for people who want to build their miniatures "Arbites-Style". Arbites won't be an option in codex, but you'll still be able to get Veterans in carapace with combat shotguns yelling "I AM THE LAW!".

All in all the new set is supposed to be more like modern "Hollywood"-SpecOps (think The Expendables).

With Nids closing in fast we can still expect IG in Q1 2014

I'm hoping they just mean the bits allow you to have a very characterful force, with each miniature having his own personality, and less that you'll have Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham in miniature form.

I would like to get some Valhallan's in plastic, so I can work on fixing up some weapons teams and kits.

Guess it was to much to hope for head spruces.
As pointed out in the female discussion the cadian uniform/armour is generic enough to cover pretty much any type of regiment (not counting the more barbaric/esoteric). Switch the cadian heads to peaked caps or pit helmets and you get great looking Mordians and Pretorians.
To bad GW doesn't realize that and put out some alternate heads.

These sound so cool but they are humans and I'm trying to avoid starting an army that is human, so bored of playing humans.
