I would love to see a return of Surpressors, perhaps with a slight redesign that has more visible thrusters on them to show they're proper jump units?

 

With Gravis for example, every single new kit since Calgar and onwards have adressed the two most common complaints heard about that design (the hood has toned WAY down, and they all have proper belts now)

 

A small Omnis pattern release wave, that also include some proper jump infantry melee units, would be golden in my view.

Omnis with single turbine packs (like Sanguinary Guard, minus the wings) would be perfect.

They feel a bit strange to me being heavy weapons that are obviously on a mobile platform. They will always be at -1 to hit.

 

Edit: And they compare unfavourably to Inceptors imo. Plasma Inceptors are tougher, more wounds, and provide more dakka for not an enormous difference in price. I have been thinking about fielding a ten-man TH/SS Terminator squad with plasma Inceptors peeking over their shields to form a dangerous mobile firebase.
