Space Marines are one of the two “standard old school” codices that will be a full update this year.

The codex update itself is more of a minor refresh to bring it into alignment with the current edition design trends.

Minis coming are:
– Assault Marines box refresh/update
– New Chaplain (probably plastic)

That would make sense. Not much salt for me to have here.

My personal thought (and this is ONLY my opinion) is that we will No Longer Have Chapter Traits. I feel that instead, we'll end up with special Detachments specific for each chapter. For instance, an Ultramarine Detachment will probably look VERY similar to standard Force Org/CAD, but offer the tactical options that is currently a trait, as a new Command Benefit. Imperial Fists might offer more Elites, and require a set of Sternguard. Command Benefit would be Bolter Drill. White Scars may not require troops, but instead demand some Fast Attacks, and give Improved Jinks, or some such.

I'm sort of expecting a very similar thing for Craftworlds, also.

There is a lot of potential for some very cool concepts there. For example, Codex Astartes complaint chapters might have more traditional chapter set ups, while non-complaint chapters will be a bit more stylized.

Biker Honour Guard, because the game still doesn't have any 2+ save bike units. Or fucking blinged-out pimpmobile bikes with giant eagle heads on the front with the wings stretching backwards as leg-guards.

Well, given the Eldar new codex was also mentioned by the guys who spoke about a new SM dex...i imagine we can now begin to see the new posterboys codex arriving shortly this year.

We have this:

Original rumors via 75hastings69 2-17-2015

Not MaybeDeathwatch
Genestealer Cult
via 75hastings69 5-1-2015

Anyone here remember the little guessing game we had about releases?Most of it can be found here…….So you’ll see in there the assassins game (correct)
HH Game (I guess time will tell )
… and amongst the other stuff….

G/S Cult Codex & Models (Harlequin sized release)
Deathwatch Codex & Models (Harlequin sized release)

….. well, I may have gotten myself a bit confused about what these actually were, it seems we “may” be seeing these two as a combined set in some fashion, whether that’s as another standalone game or as a “starter/campaign” set is yet unclear, although I’m going to assume that these would be unusual choices for a starter box.

AND this!!

'June 13th sees new Adeptus Astartes Codex release with two vehicle boxes. New land raider command variant included and new rhino command variant. Ornate design on additional armour plates etc. More marine kits to follow.

The codex sees predators/whirlwinds/indicators as 1-3 options. No surprise.
The codex sees land raider squadrons and huge bonus to ignoring damage when part of them.

Glad Whirlwind are being squadroned. May not make them up to must haves but it makes them more attractive.

I miss when Chaos Space Marines were a thing... Yeah we got Daemonkin Codex... but TBH outside of the Gorepack and the Lord of AxeCheese who makes 2 Blood Thirsters that codex basically sucked. Even then it was affectively a reprint of CSM and Daemon codex but Khorne only with no fancy new rules and bits other than the army one for blood points.
