If it is true it is annoying and I will be cutting circles out of cereal boxes to glue to the bottom of old bases

The BRB states that a legal base is any base the model was provided with, so there is no need to change bases.

And base sizes is not what this thread is about, start a new one for that discussion.

Considering there's a Blood Angel Rumour thread from May that you have even commented in, I wouldn't worry about who says what where Einherjar.

Those bases don't look any larger to me, it's possible the new leg sculpts have the feet ever so closer together.

I already addressed whether or not this topic needed it's own thread in my initial post.

I am apprehensive about the thread descending into complaining about GW and would rather it stay on the topic stated in the threads title. GW complaining gets incredibly tiresome when it permeates nearly every single thread.

GW complaining is about as annoying as non-mod policing. Here's some back-on-topic to soothe your soul:

I'm pretty stoked that there will be BA specific box kits (really stoked to see the alleged Terminators), though it will make the tactical marines I already have for my army look quite bland if I do incorporate the new ones. I guess I could have kit-bashed DC models the whole way through but really didn't want to spend that kind of money on a unit that the current codex really doesn't favour. As it is I'm now quite interested in seeing if anything will change for the Tactical squads with the new release beyond a points drop, otherwise there's a gorgeous kit that I have no reason to buy unless I make them into Sternguard...though then I would need to find me some combi-weapons outside of the vanilla SG box.

Fair enough, point taken.

Perhaps some of the bits new to the tac box will be external? Like, the tabards can be added on to the torsos instead of joined with the leg part of the model, ala the old tac box. Probably not though, since it looks like it will be similar to the sternguard kit.

It does look like a good preview for the supposed termie box, and also, I think there was word of a plastic termie HQ for BAs too, but not sure it thats separate from the Shield of Baal box set.

The Infernus Pistol is indeed a Melta pistol, but with a 6" total range (that means 3" Melta range). Currently Tactical sergeants do not have that option, only Assault sergeants and higher ranking Characters. It definitely looks cooler than it is, but those rules could change! I would love to see a plastic Terminator Captain/Sanguinary Priest kit. It would be easy enough to do I think.

I think I have just about convinced myself to buy the Tactical box and make Sternguard out of them. I think I'll be able to get some combi-weapons through the interwebz easy enough, plus I have a couple already.

Well, if you weren't convinced, maybe this will. These guys look pretty sweet, and I don't even play BA.

hopefully GW understand how anticipated this Codex has been, haha.

It's the DC box with a couple twists and no 'X' markings and some elements of the Sternguard/new Tactical box added, looks like. I'm very down....hopefully it isn't dumb expensive. The vanilla one is $50, which is already one of the most expensive Troop selection boxes I think (barring Grey Knight Terminators).

I was thinking of painting my BA Razorbacks yellow for my Imperial Fists, but if they get useful in the new Codex....that whole army might get even more side-tracked than it already is!
