Imperial Guard will take up a 3 week release slot.  The release picture got leaked.  You can see it here.

– Week one is up for preorder with the March 22nd White Dwarf.
– Breakdown is as follows:

Week 1: 3 kits, including the Ogryns plastic combo-kit and 2 others.
Week 2: Codex
Week 3: 2 kits 

Week 1 kits:
– Ogryns/Bullgryns plastic combo-kit (one unit with ranged weapons, the other with giant shields and close combat weapons)
– Stormtroopers/Veterans combo-kit
– Unseen “Big transport” kit.

This new vehicle is said to be able to move entire squads of Ogryns and other stuff (so apparently more transport space than the Chimera). This kit is said to be roughly Land Raider sized. Previous “big tank” chatter over a month ago has also described it as being influenced by the Forgeworld Malcador’s design.
