Now this is an interesting quote from someone who is usually in the know:
Bit more:And what if the most of the Rending rules stay exactly as they are with the only change to Rending being the size of the extra AP die roll?
So with this in mind, versus non-vehicle units Rending weapons will work exactly as they currently do. Therefore said genestealers will function virtually the same as they do now when fighting troops.
However those very same genestealers will no longer even have a chance to punch through a Land Raider like they currently can (though anything with a Rear Armor Value of 10 should be very concerned, trust me)
From what I heard, it may be even better than picking.Quote:

Overheard "rumours" from those who would know.Quote:

I was thinking the same thing,Quote:
I get the feeling that Krak grenades will get useful.
though I have not heard if grenades will change much from their current incarnation (however based on the new Ork codex, it looks to me as though they should remain the same).
To repeat, that particular bit of detail was infered and did not come from me.Quote:
It also sounds like the additional die will be a D3.
Then it looks like our sources may have differing information.Quote:

It is much too early for the "leaking" of anything more specific without compromising sources. About all that I can get away with is pretty much just limited to commenting on stuff that has already been leaked/rumoured from/by others.
So Rending was brought up, with many going on about how it is "rumoured" to be changing. I merely provided some hints as to how I was told that it would be changing in the next edition. (while I heard about the AP change, others have heard about a change as to when "Rending" occurs - as of today, both now sound likely to be seen in the not too distant future)
I also vaguely hinted at some "rumoured" changes to close combat (and vehicles). This was all more or less in hopes of curtailing (or at least reducing) further moaning about how genestealers won't be able to kill any space marines in the next edition (though their efficiency may be slightly reduced - however this will depend on the rest of the possible changes to close combat and how this all meshes in the new rules).
