To be released on the 11th of June:

"Moraz III – a deadly jungle world filled with danger and fear, populated by ferocious aliens who wait in the undergrowth to pounce on the unwary and mercilessly kill anyone who stumbles across them. Even the plant life itself is malignant here, constantly twisting and growing in unnatural ways to trap its prey.


A dropship containing vitally important surveillance files has crash landed on this hostile planet. It’s up to you and your squad of Space Marine Scouts to retrieve these files, activate the dropship, and hopefully escape with your lives.


A fun and compelling two-player challenge, Lost Patrol is a boxed game set on a hostile jungle world full of sinister hidden danger! Players assume the roles of a Space Marines Scout squad and a fierce swarm of cunning Genestealers eager to end their lives. The Genestealers of Moraz III have every advantage on their home turf and will make every attempt to quickly despatch the human intruders.
The Scouts will almost certainly all die. But how far can you get? Will you ever see the drop pod tile? And each game becomes a challenge to try and get further – and because you can turn games around in 10 minutes when you get into it, you can play loads of it, and swap sides and make it a competition with your mate.


Inside the box, you’ll find five Space Marine Scouts, twelve Genestealers, six Infestations (the markers of imminent Genestealer appearance),thirty hex tiles and the full rules for play.
This game will be available from 11th June 2016. Click ‘email me’ on the right, and we’ll notify you as soon as pre-orders open. " -GW website

Someone jumped the gun on this :)
Now I only have to wait for 2½ months for this. But it looks amazing!

Coincides with them branching out to more mainstream retailers too.
This game and Blood Bowl, packaged and good to go, were on display at some games convention GW had a booth at a few weeks (maybe a month or so? I have no concept of time) ago. Can't wait to see what they have in store for Blood Bowl. There's also an Ork vs. Ultramarine boxed game but I haven't seen any rules/game tiles or anything on that front just models. All coloured plastic by the looks of it (haven't seen the BB models, just the grey promo pics).

Just to be sure, the only reason I think this is lackluster is because it looks like they just took existing molds and cast with coloured plastic. It's cool for beginners, but they still gotta super glue the pieces together by the looks of it where a lot of previous entry-level kits were snap together (and gorgeous). If there was new Scouts and even just reposed Genestealers in there it would be more accessible to all gamers but this I have no reason to spend $70 CAD on. X-Wing has a firm grasp on my skirmish gaming.
