EDIT: Holy moly, the SoB only have 13 kits atm by my count and are only going up to 16 counting the announced stuff. I seriously thought their range was much bigger than that!
We got a few new data sheets during the revamp, but iirc
we only got two completely new kits that didn't replace existing ones (Junith Eurutia and the Triumph), and we actually lost a few things like Arch-Confessor Kyrinov and Uriah Jacobus. So are upcoming wave will actually expand the army, which the revamp really didnt
I respect the view but very aggressively disagree with discounting resculpts (especially those that come with new options) from release counts.
The Sister's entire range was effectively remade and that most definitely counts. Especially with how rough those old sculpts are.
Fairly sure alot of people that play older armies (myself included) would love to see their Guardians, Guardsmen and the like redone over brand new units.
Its why I have a positive view of the Sister's release but am deeply suspicious of the new Ork release looking more like a new subfaction entirely which will leave their older kits to languish as is.
Quality of the average sculpt and its age are far more important than bloating an army for its own sake (glances at the insane and increasingly redundant size of the Primaris unit roster while alot of actual Marine characters and chapter-specific stuff are increasingly getting outdated).
Granted, thats a difference in priority.
