If you can add anything to 40k; a race of your own, a new suppliment, dream vehicle? what would it be?

Personaly I'd like a race similar to the Mobile Infantry from the Starship Troopers book.

Wiki said:
The Mobile Infantry is an elite fighting force of the Terran Federation ( IMPERIUM ;) ). A Mobile Infantryman is equipped with a Powered Suit as well as an arsenal of weapons at his disposal, some built into the suit. These weapons range from conventional firearms to micro-nuclear warheads. The armor is strong enough to resist any conventional weapon less than high explosives or anti-tank rounds. The servo-motors give the wearer enough strength to crush a tank or tear through a concrete wall, but are dextrous enough to allow them to pick up an egg without breaking it. The armor is also equipped with jump jets and rockets, allowing the trooper to move rapidly about the field. One expression used in the book as a compliment to good soldiers is that they are "on the bounce." According to Juan Rico, when one is suited up in the powered armor, they appear like a "steel gorilla".

Usually, an MI platoon would drop from individual capsules launched from a troop transport in orbit. The capsule is used only once. The MI platoon will then execute its mission. These missions range from hit-and-run strikes to search and rescue missions. The MI will usually deploy about one trooper every half-mile. After the mission is complete, the Transport will launch a retrieval beacon for the platoon to follow to the retrieval area.
Not sure if it would work in game terms, The army would be very small, maybe around 10 models with no squad coherence, but rules meaning the commander must survive or something similar to 'Phase Out' would happen.

To hit modifiers like in WFB, 2nd ed., Necromunda.

e.g. -1 to hit at long range, +1 in close with a Shotgun, penalties for cover (rather than an armour save), -1 when doing a stand and shoot reaction to a charge, etc.

Thats never really been a big thing for me. The reasons have always been kinda clear for it but not for the mystery tank.

A Jeep for Imperial Guard which should replace the Sentinel. They should be called Wyverns, I'm tellin you man!

I really like the M.I. from Starship Troopers. I would play them over IG but I don't think it's likely that they will ever come about as Space Marine Terminators are pretty close to the same thing. However, they have things like tactical nukes, flamers, heavy flamers, grenades, beam swords, insane armor, jump jets.

I'd love to see the specialty Guard forces fleshed out more. The books all acknowledge that there are many differen PDFs each unique and with their own powers. They do fight little wars amongst themselves all the time, and are inducted into Imperial Armies as needed. To actually see some of these things get offiical codexes like those of the Space Marine Chapters would be great.

If that isn't possible then I want a Squat unit that I can induct into my Guard army like Ratling and Ogryn currently are. I don't care if they sucked, had bad models, or did quite "fit"... I want my _ing Space Dwarves to fight along side my Space Ogres and Space Hobbits. Even though I want them for Fluff/Flavor, it could give me access to Jump Infantry or Bikers (things that I can't get as Guard, which is especially frustrating as I cannot see the reason for this to be the case).

That reminds me, Cadians definitely need Rough Rider bikes and something with a Jump Pack could be cool too.

Also, in Legends of the Old West, shotguns use the flame template. I wouldn't mind that.

Finally, I agree that the different regiments should be fleshed out as each one should be significantly different.

I want a Farsight Codex! Crisis Suits as a troops choice, hand to hand specialist suits, faster moving suits, suits suits suits!

I'd also like to see several Guard supplements, even if they're just downloadable, with revamped models to follow on. The jeep idea is a good one, and I'd also like to see Guard have a lot more armor options. I know that they already have a lot, but having a couple more transport types (Like a HUMMV type transport with a heavy bolter on top for HQ units) so that you have the option of having a very fast army without having to spend 70+ points to ferry around a 70 point unit.

Oh, and more troops options for Necrons. They're a very boring army to design a list for, imho.

Hmmm...Would it be too much to ask for Kroot to have a 4+ invulnerable in hand to hand to represent they're agility? Even with increased points, that'd make Kroot so much better. Or maybe in a Kroot Mercenary Codex? Ah, but while I'm wishing, I'd also like a million bucks...

5+ or a 6+.
While I'm here I'll say Death Gurad Terminators(T5 and Feel no Pain) and similar with all the devoted legions, recreate the CSM legions and a plastic space Marine terminator captain and a plastic power armour chaos lord/sorcerer
