Why does GW insist on giving marines upgrade sprue (for templars and now dark angels) but having no love for IG? I'm not even asking for regiment specific kits, I just want a kit that includes some of these things:
better "gear" (radios, gadgets and other cool stuff)
different legs for long coats
some gas masks
a few more poses for the las pistol and cc weapon arms
Shotguns (for veterans)
more "talismans" (skulls, dogtags, standards, ammo boxes, kind of like the stuff on the new scout sprues)
If GW made an IG upgrade what would you like to see on it?
Well i would like too see a different arm/head/weapon sprue for our guys so you could customize your infantry and officers. Maybe a sprue for different guard regiments like the Ice Warriors of Valhalla or the Mordian Iron Guard. A all plasma gun sprue would be useful too

+1 for plasma/meltaguns. I $*&%$ing hate how GW keeps making sprues that don't include all the weapon options available for the troop -- no meltaguns, no plasma guns, no sniper rifles, etc! Just flamer and grenade launcher, the two weakest ones!

Games Workshops intention is to force people to do conversions, I think they said as much at one point. IG are intended as an army that can only be played by veteran hobbyists, this permiates everything GW does with them. You are suposed to start with SM or CSM then colect a Alien force and only after that go to a specialist army or IG. Thats how they get the most money out of you.
That being said I would want several new heads/arms and a few wargear options, like tiny madlions for the oficers and stuff.

The IG definately need more options for heads, i mean the poor cadians all look alike. I mean short of painting the hair color on the squad leaders different colors you can't tell 'em apart. The special weapons sprue would definately be nice, i mean I have some left from my SM, but I don't like dipping into extra parts when I just want my IG to have the weapons upgrades they are supposed to get in the codex. All the extra equipment would be cool but I would be happy with the special weapons and head options for now.
Battlesuits, putting the BS in BullS*%t.
I am! Regiment specific kits would be freaking awesome! They could bring them out as upgrade sprues for the cadian or catachan plastics, and you could go from there. They wouldn't even have to be big sprues, just enough to change the regiment to something else - kinda like the new robed dark angels.I'm not even asking for regiment specific kits, I just want a kit that includes some of these things:
Plastic Steal Legion anyone? Plastic Mordian? Tallarn?
These would all be awesome, and I'm sure would sell well. Small upgrade sprues, and besides, people would have to buy the base 20 guardsmen as well anyway.
Although, what I would love most, would be normal person (compared to space marine giant) bionic bits. Whilst I do enjoy making my own bionic arms/legs/eyes (and getting a slight kick on how they are turning out), the option to take the lazy path would be great. Its taking me ages to get my 750 point skitarii army up and running for the upcoming conflict tournament!

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
You realize half the stuff you want is available from Forge World right?
You can forget about revisions as we will probably not see any within the next couple years, codex updates are a very maybe as overall IG seems to be ver well balanced. As for GW, the have their hands full with the Orks revisions, and after that dark eldar will follow. And besides, I think the IG is fine with the enxception of the lack of medics in every squad.

The key word here is IF.
I never said that GW will do this, because they won't. They're too preocupied with the glory boys to care about the IG. I also never said anything about the rules. I just wan't more sprue.
And yes, I realize this stuff is availible from FW, but so what?

I like plastic and I like low prices, and I certainly don't want to shell out scary amounts of money just because I want a goddamn gas mask or long jackets.
