And from what I understand the NFW aren't going to be S6 anymore, but have the ability to be Power weapons, somehow.

Sure they would. How do you thin them out with T-Fexes, Harpies and Hive Guard if they are immune to being shot from far away, have a 2+ save, and probably have 2W?!?

Bah! Perhaps I've been tainted.

You swarm them with Hormagaunts, obviously

While I do hope they have a more limited role in the new codex, I dont think they would completely remove the Inquisition preseance. For starters, that would irk alot of people that so much of their stuff becomes completely useless. But I also think that if they removed everything non Space Marine, then the new codex would become a little too much the next flavour of Space Marine 'dex, and even GW has to know that they cant release too much SM or they risk alienating their fanbase a little too much.

I'm surprised they're being released in April and yet I haven't seen one picture of any of the new releases except that ugly Stormraven.

Yeah... what a desperate gamer you are... not like me, searching with google to see if there were pictures or news outside the main forums like I did yesterday... and the day before yesterday... and so on...

If you would get heresy reputation based on the times you see the same page, IŽd be web owner by now

I remember some posters being worried about iconography on the Storm Raven. Apparently we're covered:

The Mechanicus pilot might be a bit weird if like the rumors say the SR can use psychic powers.

Haha, so, in an ironic twist of fate, GK will be the last updated Space Marines. Just when GW finally decides to update point costs and rules in a FAQ, we don't get it because we're 3 months out.

In the same vein, no update for SoB rhinos or similar stuff in a FAQ. Ahhh, GW, I did promise myself I wouldn't nerdrage in 2011...
