Blood Angels
5 death company
10 assault marines 
1 furiouso dreadnaught
1 New Exclusive captain w jump pack

3 warriors
20 gaunts
3 lictors (editor’s note: this makes no sense, perhaps Hive Guard?)
1 NEW Exclusive Prime

Campaign is slated to kick off the week after Tyranids

Rumors are rated: Average-Low coming from known and unknown sources

Now this set certainly dovetails nicely with the latest rumors that have been breaking over the last 48 hours.  But it sounded oddly familiar, so we did some digging.  Compare today’s above rumor to this set of rumors that came out 10 months ago and were off the mark – but everyone figured they were confused reporting of the later StormClaw set:
