I was also there yesterday and read through the proof print. All in all i was very impressed, a lot more charecters and fluff than IA9 as a lot of the story of the actual campaign has already been dealt with.
The guy from FW also said to me that as well as the Carchadons chapter master they may be releasing a model for the Novamarines special charecter in IA9.
The Salamanders charecter dreads statline was awesome, the forgeworld guy said that the chassis was built by Vulkan almost as a prototype Ironclad.
