Supposedly a new rule supplement that will allow you to bring a limited number of "super heavies" and "apocalypse only" units into a "standard" 40k game and a new rule supplement for large fortification assaults... or maybe one ruleset that covers both. Think they are trying to move some more of the Baneblade, Lord of Skulls, and Fortress of Redemption models :D

Servants of the Laughing God (Harlequin Themed Eldar Army)
First Eastern Mirage Corps (C:SM)
I am the Evil Project Log (All my work since restarting the hobby)
The Crusade of Morr (WFB Empire Battle Reports)
Dem Bones (Dice Rolling Program)

Not that I've heard. The ones in the video are the ones we got when Apoc dropped and home made stuff. Maybe some new fortification rules though.

It looks like we're getting an attacker/defender ruleset (like Planetstrike) and something that lets you take a superheavy in games outside of Apoc (rumored to be called the Lords of War slot, and if it works like the Heresy one then you would need to play above 2k AND it'd have to be 25% or LESS of your total army's points value).

why? can't we have nids AND new fortifications to fight them in

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Quite possibly one of the most generic videos GW has ever produced... If GW's rumor embargo worked as they wanted it to this could mean:

Fortifications
Chaos Marines
Imperial Guard
Lord of Skulls
There is a game call Warhammer 40k. It's about war and we should prepare for it.

*Yawn*

It kind of makes sense that they r trying to get some of the super heavies into regular 40k cause the renegades in Imperial Armour volumes 5 through 7 have the option to use super heavies as a heavy support choice.

well, it should be remembered the principle super heavy used by the heretics was the Malcador, which is just a Leman Russ that's eaten one too many sweeties.

Lol! I really like your interpretation of a Malcador.
