Default New Space marines codex (update for 7th ed)

via Birds in the Trees posted by Larry Vela on Bols

Space Marines are one of the two “standard old school” codices that will be a full update this year.

The codex update itself is more of a minor refresh to bring it into alignment with the current edition design trends.

Minis coming are:
– Assault Marines box refresh/update
– New Chaplain (probably plastic)

That would make sense. Not much salt for me to have here.

My personal thought (and this is ONLY my opinion) is that we will No Longer Have Chapter Traits. I feel that instead, we'll end up with special Detachments specific for each chapter. For instance, an Ultramarine Detachment will probably look VERY similar to standard Force Org/CAD, but offer the tactical options that is currently a trait, as a new Command Benefit. Imperial Fists might offer more Elites, and require a set of Sternguard. Command Benefit would be Bolter Drill. White Scars may not require troops, but instead demand some Fast Attacks, and give Improved Jinks, or some such.

I'm sort of expecting a very similar thing for Craftworlds, also.

There is a lot of potential for some very cool concepts there. For example, Codex Astartes complaint chapters might have more traditional chapter set ups, while non-complaint chapters will be a bit more stylized.

Long rumoured kits possibly waiting for release:

Newly cut Predator kit (seen by a few people)
New basic Dreadnought kit (with all weapon options)
New cut Space Marine bikes
New Terminator veterans/command squad
and
New Space Marine Armour: MK LVII (Heinz armour)
New Multi part Chaplain (possibly including jet-pogo)
New Land Raider (add random name here, like Julie) featuring (add random weapon here, like double D cannon)

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?

Biker Honour Guard, because the game still doesn't have any 2+ save bike units. Or fucking blinged-out pimpmobile bikes with giant eagle heads on the front with the wings stretching backwards as leg-guards.
