Welcome to Librarium Online!
All that I have heard is that IG are slated for a redo in early 2009 with the following new stuff:
Greatcoats? (used as either steel legion or valhallan, depending on the heads you use)
Some sort of new medium tank?
New all plastic demolisher and hellhound?
Can anyone substantiate these rumors?
Those are pretty much all the same rumours I've heard. So far I have yet to hear any real final confirmations on any of them but I do see them as likely possibilities. (or at least vain hopes for the future. I really want Greatcoats...)

Anyone know if the Greatcoats will be a GW boxset you can find in a store or a more FW exclusive kind of thing?
It's been a minute.
Plastic Stormies have been confirmed on Warseer, as have Greatcoats which will be GW plastics. No new tank. Plastic Hell hound and Russ Variants are true. Valkyrie I think is true as GW did it as a test before the Baneblade.
The new medium tank is rumoured, but it is supposedly for the Space Marines.
I'm interested in the new greatcoat guard, though it will pain me to replace all the Cadians I have now! grr.
Plastic Stormtroopers (the less metal models we have the better IMO) and Valkyrie would be amazing.
But God-Emperor only knows when they will turn up, scuttlebutt suggests next year, but who knows.
I wouldnt take anything thats said on warseer as confirmed until pictures have been produced.
I cant see there being a valkrye in the codex, perhaps for planet strike instead.
What would a medium tank be? A heavy tank would be a leman russ battle tank, and a light is a??
I can imagine the 'greatcoat' models being a direct sales only thing. Imagine how many cadians they sell and how many catchcans? I wouldnt be suprised if catchacans became direct only too.
Plastic storm troopers is long over due.
I'm also certain that if GW calls what's coming a medium tank, it means a new model, otherwise they would have said something like "a new pattern to a famous tank" or something like that.
