MIX strikes me as odd since MVIII is the current top of the line model and hasn't even gotten out to every chapter yet, and those who have it have less sets of it than they do Terminator armor.

I'm not doubting we could see a new variant, I just doubt that it's actually MIX.

"GW is making a new pattern of armour to protect it's IP"
"Looks like Iron Man"

Most distinctive 40k thing, that has stayed basically the same since Rogue Trader? Space Marines.

Not gonna change em. I don't think GW can afford another giant bronze statue to stand outside Warhammer World.

Yeah Space Marine's and their design are pretty distinctive. Saying they're doing a new design to protect their IP that looks like another massive IP is ridiculous. I'm not saying we won't see a new Mark. Especially if these vague rumours of a major 40k event this year are accurate. But I doubt it'd be that far different from the current and that extensive in it's use.

According to the timeline mkVIII armour is only now working it's way into most chapters, being issued to veterans or squad sgts. Can't see another one coming out any time soon. Calling this one BS.

Get comfy kids and use your imagination for this advert;

A huge banner announces:

Warhammer 40,000

A low pitched guitar whines in the background,
some lightning flickers across the screen
A deep booming west country accent speaks
"This year, we take back the galaxy"
in the background a silhouette forms,
what appears to be a huge man with, er, possibly a squirrel on his head, stands there
several guitars begin playing 80's sleaze rock
there seem to be more forms in the darkness
*rubs eyes*
It looks like Motley Crue, in power armour,?.
*rubs eyes again*
*checks medication*
It now looks like Bon Jovi in power armour


"In the galaxies darkest hour, thunder armour will return and save us all"

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?

That would be hilarious. Though of note, we already have "Space Marines" with that sort of armor. Behold.

Then again, they already did change after Rogue Trader didn't they? I seem to recall the MK VI armor being the armor type Rogue Trader used, with the "Derpy Stormtrooper" MK VII being introduced afterwards.

Apart from Mk1, all the patterns of Power Armour share basically the same distinctive silhouette and features.

In personal opinion, I don't think we'll be seeing a drastic reduction in the size of pauldrons if anyone's thinking that. There's protecting your IP and then theres going rather bonkers

From BoLS Lounge, originally from Warseer I guess: BOLD added for emphasis.

Welp, I feel bad for starting this whole brouhaha, since it's looking increasingly likely to have just been panic-driven speculation on my part. Uh, apologies?

Anyway, in case you've missed it, looks like the Big May Release is looking like it'll be...*drumroll*...plastic Horus Heresy releases from GW proper. Crazy stuff. First, you have the ever-reliable Hastings tossing out hints, then Tzen over at B&C (who I can vouch for personally) giving a peek at some tips he received recently. Tzen's post is a bit more comprehensive:

I was sent this information over several e-mails and this is the best I can do to put the releases into some chronological order. It could be very wrong.

Here's some bits of info:

- There's mark 9 power armored marines on the way.

- Sister of battle are shortly after summer, just after WFB 9th ed.

- Horus Heresy is about to become very big, with Games Workshop building on the success of Forge Worlds game. This includes new plastic kits for Warhammer 30,000.

Current release schedule to my knowledge looks some thing like this:

Harlequins.
Archaon End times - Bloodthirster and Khorne Chaos Warrior kits.

Khorne Chaos space marine supplement.

Adeptus Mechanicus.

30K box set during the "red week" in May - This is a period of time staff members cannot take time off from the shops.

Some follow up releases to support the new rules set for 30k.

Then WFB 9th rules.

Horus Heresy releases

Mark 9 Power armoured marines.

WFB Releases for the Empire and Chaos - This includes the starter kit for WFB 9th ed.

Sister of Battle (Actually a codex: Ecclesiarchy, but not called that).

This is by my own admission just guess work based on what I have been e-mailed. I don't know if the order is correct or not. Or even if it is complete crap. I just thought it would be nice to share. This is an experiment, I don't normally post anything without visible proof.
Have fun speculating, kids
