A NEW dogfighter flyer arrives, that is NOT an existing known model.

New Plastic Stormtrooper/Veteran kit will build a minimum sized unit. Kit includes a TON of optional bits to individualize your squad as well as bits to dress up existing Cadian ranges.
I hope by Malcador they actually meant Macharius. Basilisk could look pretty awesome. We have so many fliers already, don't know why they need a brand new model instead of taking one from FW.

And it looks like we'll finally get that elusive plastic stormtrooper box.

Since it's a new box, would that imply that they'd be getting a nice rule and cost overhaul, to convince people to buy them?

I've been thinking of getting some of the metal Valhallans, dunno but always liked them despite how old they are, I'd prefer praetorians though, but are they getting new models or do you think it's worth getting the metal ones while I can?

I'd buy from Victoria Miniatures man, they have great sculpts. I doubt Games Workshop would release plastic or resin Praetorians.

Whether it's true or not the Malcador is the one that's been rumoured for getting on a year

I don't see how it's possible that they couldn't do them in plastic now

cor blimey, I like the look of them

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

I could see my self getting some veterans.

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
I have seen pictures of plastic 10 man squads of steel legion and imperial guard veterans. The steel legion appear to be pushfit plastic and are plastic re-sculpts. There is also a big tank seen, but no additional information right now.

All finecast has been discontinued and no models will be made in finecast. This currently only applies to 40k to test how it works with the community.

I have heard a rumour that GW are moving to a stage where they want to make more troops as pushfit models, and use multipart plastic sprues or elite/fast attack/heavy support models, to reduce consumer prices for more commonly purchased troop choices.

You can expect pushfit for named characters and multipart plastic for generic hq.

A Cipher model is done that appears to be pushfit, and I expected it to be released with the dataslate which did not happen, so perhaps something is coming.

That is pretty interesting - It would be awesome if they can get it to work!

All "push-fit" on the troops choices?

Doesn't that kind of limit your modelling options to a degree?
