I really wouldn't mind picking up a set or two for my dear Dark Angels, i don't have enough any bits to make them more heraldic/ knightly and my sculpting skills have a lot of space for improvement.

Depending on the quality, I'd probably be happier buying than creating parts myself, given the time it would save.
Same reason they haven't put out Legion or Army Specific Codex's. They can't be bothered. Making individual sprues like this is a lot of work. They used to do it with metal/fine cast for certain chapters but they cost a bomb.

I wonder if this is just an assumption due to the legion box rumor. But with that rumor, all the legion/god stuff is in one box. These are boxes for each chapter? That would be huge!

It might happen, it wouldn't be the first time they've relaesd chapter specific kits, Iron Hands, Crimson/Imperial Fists and White Scars all have chapter upgrade kits alreday available aleit in metal/finecast. If it does happen I'd imagine them being very small frames similar in size to the vehicle command frame that came with the Apoc formations when they were released back in 2007 and will contain some chapter specific partsd maybe some bionics for IH, a flmer with dragon head, an ornate thunder hammer and dragon scale loin cloth for sallie and maybe five chapter specific shoulder pads, and will likely bedirect only. I can't see, BA or SW getting any love here, because they've already got the Death Company and GreyHunter/Blood Claw kits already availkable, and it's also unlikely that the DA or Templars will get anything either as they already have upgrade sprues themselves, although the later two arer more likely than SW and BA as they are considerably older sprues, so may get a re-cut version with more coponents on the frame.

Edit: It wouls alos be a good way of making chapter specific relics available from supplements like SoT and Raukan.

I could see this happening after phasing out metal and finecast bitz they already have.

It sounds too good to be true,
if it were to happen I would say it would be more likely to be forgeworld

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?

Ahh... But isn't there the other rumour about a Forgeworld/GW product line merger?

Don't leave us engineers with too much free time on our hands...
we WILL tinker around and build something!!!
