With the new codex around the corner and much more information how are you thinking you will fit the new rules and units into your army?
As a tanith player I was really bummed as Gaunt has not appeared in any rumors or summary sheets and is almost officially MIA. However the rules for the new commissar lord looks like it could do a decent representation of gaunt. And with veterans moving to troops and having the oppurtunity to take camo cloaks (or so they say) I think I can finally show a true tanith army.
A small, elite force of lightly armed veterans. Occasionally they'll fight alongside other, more conventional regiments, such as the volpone blue bloods (carapaced guard with storm troopers), the narmanian 1st (leman russ's, lots of them), the serpents (bassies and other artillery) or the pardus (mobile infantry).
Overall I'm optimistic and looking forward to the new codex.
How about yall?
Most Notable Achievements:
Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
Personally, I am planning to go with so many psykers it will cause the immediate vicinity to go swirly. Primaris Psyker as one HQ, and multiple Psyker battle Squads.
I also have a conversion for a Primaris Psyker vaguely planned.
I want to get the Commissar Lord model and make him into M. Bison (of Street Fighter fame),using cotton wool purplified to make the glowy flames around his hands. Plus this gives me the right to shout "PSYCHO-CRUSHER" every time he uses Lightning Arc.
Of course doing this might require me to rename my regiment the 1st Retro.

I want to try the skimers. Fast IG is a novelty. Maybe a mechanized company of veterans suported by basic Leman Russ and Vendettas.

I am going to go with my basics
Lots of Tanks
Lots of Guardsmen (with a couple commissars to keep them from running) to protect the aforementioned tanks
And lots of Guns, for those guardsmen, who will shoot anyone who gets too close, to the tanks!
But I am also gonna try out all the new crazy units, like Psyker squads (will help alot against Fateweaver), Penal Legion, all the Special Characters (Creed&Kell!!), new LRBT variants, Stormies and of course the new skimmers
All in all, it's gonna be awesome.

I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
4 units of vets with 3 special weapons, and a nice big platoon sitting on a home objective backed up by a couple tanks or 3. We finally have the ability to be deadly on the run, not just relying on our chim to kill stuff.
I'm currently painting up more tallarn infantry in anticiapton of the new codex.
If the rumours are true I'll be using a maxed out platoon and a unit of veterans as my two core troops choices.
Have invested in some old ratlings (since their bandanas can be painted to match my tallarn head scarfs)
Desperately trying to find the bits for my leman russ sponsons since taking them now seems viable rather than only taking a hull mounted heavy bolter.
If I cna take stormtroopers as troops I'm really tempted to do an Airbourne guard army mounted in valkyries. I'm sure everyone is thinking of this, but we'll have to wait until the new codex is realesed to find out if I can do it.
By the way, the best price I can find for the codex is £12.50 including P&P does anyone have it any cheaper?
Finally getting round to finshing my Tallarn Imperial Guard Army (2K)
Everything else has been sacrificed on the Altar of eBay...
Objective grabbing wing of 2 Veteran squads mounted in Chimeras with Camo Cloaks and Snare Mines (whatever they do), some Storm Troopers riding a first class Vendetta, a base of 2 Infantry Platoons to increase the command squads issuing orders, 2 Demolishers, and a couple anti-tank Lascannon teams. So 1 Static element/1 mobile element.
But, more and more I'm leaning toward a Mechanized/Air Cavalry list of Veteran squads riding in Chimeras, Stormtroopers riding in Valykries, Hellhounds, and Spearhead Sentinels. I just can't decide if I want to invest the time and resources into uber-expanding my Guard, or, if I want to add a couple shiny new toys and then start collecting Orks.

shrug on how my list will end up on the tabletop but my collection as a whole is moving from an just infantry company to an entire (us) Marine Air Ground Task Force.
currently got an infantry company of 3 infantry platoons and weapons platoon (which counts is currently my command platoon) each w/ 3 squads each, a section of MBTs for armored support, 4 recon sentinels, and 2 stormtrooper squads.
edited: (decided to work in my hellhounds and demolisher to cut down on purchases and utilize current models)
will be adding:
2 mechanized platoons (will consist of squads in 6 chimeras supplemented by 2 hellhounds),
2 valkyries for air support (stick either 2 infantry squads in them or my two stormtroopers squads),
1 more MBT (along with my demolisher to finish off the tank platoon),
and 2 heavy sentinels (maybe add the other 6 more in at a later date)
... oh, and use the free Creed/Kell blister i got yesterday... might as well not let that go to waste either.
not sure how i'll work on it after all that; i really want to keep it pure human and contemporary-looking so will not include 'acceptable deviants'/mutants such as ogryns, ratlings, or psykers or artillery on the tabletop (ex. the Ordinance and Fleet advisors will still be included though not the astropath... unless i just convert him up as some sort of RTO).
and whether any of my stuff is actually competitive on the table... shrug. i mainly just care that my army looks awesome when i have it displayed on my shelf.
