*40k expansion for regular games of 40k
*Rules for 17 Fortifications like the Wall of Martyrs Imperial Defense Line and the Macro-Cannon Aquila Strongpoint
*Some Contain Several Fortifications that can be Taken as a Group that take up one Fortification Slot
*Upgrades for Fortifications and New Rules for Buildings


Escalation
*40k expansion for regular games of 40k
*Full Rules for 16 Lords of War in a 96page Hardback Release
*Adds a new "Lord's of War" slot to every armies Foc
*Allows certain Super-Heavy units to be fielded in standard 40k games
*Destroyer Weapons
*Some of the New Lords of War
Tyranid Harridan
Eldar Revenant Titan for Eldar and Dark Eldar
Super Heavy Tanks for the Imperial Guard (several)

Interesting stuff. They sound like revamps of old expansions to be honest. The first sounds like Planetstrike, though with a lot more defensive weapons to use now. And the second sounds like Spearhead, which did allow you to take one Apoc unit if you picked that Formation. Both were fun to play and updating them should see them come back strong.

So... Once again we meet - rumours indicating Plastic Thunderhawks. We shall see. We shall see. I would still love to get one (or two) should they become reality.

Escalation sounds like complete bullshit frankly. No trying to start rumour finder bashing but nothing in that sounds plausible, it's basically Apoc in 40k, super heavies in normal games? Yeah that sounds like a great idea.

Reading it again I can see what you mean and I can completely agree. I think that a lot of recent rumours sounds like a load of rubbish a need to be taken with a good dose of salt.
Plus it always nice having the odd thunder hawk rumor here and there, keeps me on my toes.
