I can't see there being no customisability at all for one reason alone. We have shoota boys and choppy boys, a boys box has to make at least both of those which means at least hands or arm swaps being a thing. Well that's my thinking and hope at least
Oh, certainly. Different heads, too.
My concern is the bodies, and paired arms for shootas. The way primaris and sisters of battle work is that you cannot swap torsos and legs; they only fit together in one configuration. Swapping a set of legs and torso means more cutting, gap-filling and resculpting than the older style. It also means small pose changes are much more difficult to achieve. Want to lean a boy forward? You just glue the torso on differently now, but if the kits of the last 5 years tell us anything, it's that you will have to do a lot more work to achieve that.
The result is a bunch of models that do look alike, even if the exact arms and head positioning is different. Unfortunately, that's the way GW has gone, so I won't lament it too much; the ship has sailed.
Oh, and the thing about paired arms: we no longer get long guns and a supporting arm with an open hand. That hand is now modeled onto the weapon, severely reducing kitbashing options without resorting to filing down and resculpting that part of the gun. It's an annoyance that I don't think was worth the trade off.
