My IG projects are at a Hualt right know cuz i'm hearing some crazy talk about the massive changes that are going to occur for the 5th edition. Can anyone confirm or deny
Are they deeping doctrines?
Are the Catachans going to be legal?
Are they Losing Armored Fist squads?
Anyone know what units there adding?
I want to start a catachan force but if they arne't going to be valid then i dont want to start them. Also if there loosing Armored fist squads that means im going to have to buy and paint another platoon, which i don't want to do. If anyone has any knowlege or advice it would be sorely Appreicated, cuz 5th detion is throwing a monkey wrentch in my plans. And i know im a bad speller.
Doctrines are most likely gone, replaced by different commanders.
Catachans will probably live on, but in what form? Hopefully something better than the current "Jungle Fighters" which is just horrible.
Armored Fists. We may be able to mechanize whole platoons, or we may be able to still buy AF, nothing has been confirmed.
New units. Valkyrie gun ships are confirmed, more weapons for sentinels (eg. multimelta, plasmacannon) is shaping up, a new (improved?) psyker, new commanders, new command squads, ect ect.
Hopefully IG will get a nice bump in the new codex.
1. Doctrines are going intheir current form
2. Catachans are definately staying rumour has it a new palstic catachan command either way they stay
3. The armoured fist will stay in some form they aren't dropping chimeras ever
4. New untis see the rumours threads and take your pick! oh yeah take a large sack of salt when doing this.
Essentially everything stays in some form or other, new units may be added. So why stop collecting for months on end, guardsmen and heavy weapons will still be there and so will pretty much everything else!
You do know that catachans don't have to be used with the catachan rules right?
Hope that helps
I've posted some decent material (if I do say so myself) on the topic, also some good debate arose: My Reckless Predictions for the future IG Codex (Part 1) (Part 2)

RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
guys, i serously don't know what i do without you. Thx much
this is what ive found out from people at the shop and the internet
No Doctrines (This is just a rumor)
Commissar Lord (its like a Colonel-Commissar)
new plastic Storm Troopers
new plastic Cadian Command Squad
new plastic Catachan Command Squad
also storm troopers can take a valkryie as a transport
new platic valkryie (it will not be a flying unit for regular games its going to be counted as a skimmer)
new plastic kit for Leman Russ with demolisher and another tank class upgrades
also leman russ are going to be in squads of 3 which each count as on heavy choice
also armoured fist squads are gone now everything is going to be platoon based like veterans or drop troopers
this is how the are going to replace the doctrines
also i have no idea what this is going to be but one of the guys told me at the Bunker that they have a new model called a Prima Psyker (neither me or the guy at the shop new what that is)
1 thing i hope they do is make it so u cant put everything in the armoury into your command squad
