So what do people expect us to get in psychic awakening? I imagine we'll be in the "greater good" or "saga of the beast" books (tau and orks respectively is practically guaranteed) so it would make the most sense for us to be the opposition in one of them. Due to the genestealer in that shadowsun photo and the death guard v tau snippet i imagine it'll be nids, tau and death guard in "the greater good" leaving us for "saga of the beast" (i reckon space wolves will join us as well due to the saga wording).
So far the other non-codex standard marine loyalists in psychic awakening have got doctrine and chaplain litany access for dark angels, blood angels and black templars. Grey knights got their own special version of doctrines and litanies. I imagine we will get the basic chaplain litanies and a specialist form of doctrines like the grey knights modelled on our existing doctrines perhaps. Given how we already have kraken and vengeance rounds for extra AP i don't think GW would give us EVEN MORE AP options for our boltguns. Plus deathwatch are the epitome of tactical flexibility so i think a pick and choose doctrine system like the grey knights have makes more sense than the procedural codex version. And it would make sense for us to have specialised doctrines as we are the xenos specialised army.
So to sum up i expect:
- Deathwatch doctrines
- Chaplain litanies (possibly with a deathwatch specific set)
- extra relics
- extra stratagems
- extra warlord traits
Also a fervent hope of mine is that we FINALLY get access to the primaris vanguard units. I have infiltrators all painted and ready to go!
