News: GW Newsletter - Advance Orders Battle Missions

Hey all, another GW newsletter is out and this one is actually packed with upcoming releases. It is nice to see Battle Missions stuff coming up for preorder and there certainly are some cool releases that coincide with the expansion. The plastic venerable dreadnaught looks great. For Ork players, having plastic deff dreads and killa kans is going to be awesome! The new Imperial Guard releases are a bit of a letdown. First we have the new Chimera which mainly features cosmetic changes - yes it is nice to have the various turret options, but it does not look like they are including the tank upgrade sprue anymore which will be a bit annoying if you want to deck out your Chimeras with heavy stubbers etc. The big failure here is the new Basilisk kit. It was rumored that there would be a 2-1 or 3-1 kit that would feature a Basilisk, Medusa, Griffon or Bombard since they all share the same chassis and are virtually identical save for the different guns. It really would not have been difficult for GW to fit 2-3 different guns onto the sprue and offer up an amazing kit that would make mulitple tanks - they did manage this with the Russ Demolisher kit which turned out to be excellent. This really seems like a step backwards and throws into question the release of these other variants. Will they remain FW only? Is GW going to release a kit for each individual tank? (seems stupid but this is GW...). Considering that the Basilisk really is not on anyone's favorite list right now, it seems silly to release it as a solo kit. What do you guys think?
