Rumors: Latest Codex: Space Marines info

Codex: Space Marines

We have some more Space Marine Rumors!  I'm excited this Codex will be received with open arms.  I haven't heard anything new on a flyer kit, or new developments on the Rhino assault ramp rumors.  I guess we'll have to wait and see.

From Best_Pone on Warseer

Up for release in September is the new Codex: Space Marines. 

(If I were a betting man I would assume it drops either on the 14th or 28th of September).

- There will be 7 Ltd Ed varients. 6 of these will be covers for First Founding chapters, whilst the 7th will have Black Templars on the cover.
This is interesting because all along we have been reading that the new Space Marine Codex would not include Black Templars.

- New weapon family: Grav weapons. I believe these wound against the armour save (so terminators would be wounded as if they had a toughness of 2).

- First Founding chapters will be getting a substantial section each to themselves, so hopefully this can be looked as as Codex: Space Marines instead of Codex: Ultramarines. This will also show in a rule called Chapter Tactics, for which the effects depend on the chapter being played.

- There is a new armour type that at first glance looks to be somewhere between a terminator and a dreadnought - looking more closely, it appears to go over the marine's power armour however.

- This new armour can be armed in 2 ways, depending on the user. The devastator version has either a bolter array or missile launchers mounted on the chest armour, whilst the gauntlets can be armed with heavy bolters, lascannons or grav cannons. The assault version has a bolter array or frag launchers mounted on the chest armour, with assault drills mounted on the gauntlets.

- There are 2 new AA tanks. One tank veterans will already be familiar with as the Hunter, armed an AA missile launcher. The other tank mounts 2 tri-barreled turrets instead.

- There is a new tactical squad. Lots of options as you'd expect, but of particular interest will probably be the grav pistol and grav rifle.

- A new plastic Sternguard veteran squad.

- A new plastic Vanguard veteran squad.

- New plastic characters: a captain, a librarian and a chaplain.

Well, we won't have to wait to long!

 Thanks to Best_Pone, for the update!
