Default Plastic steel legion?

I recently heard some rumours about plastic steel legion being released alongside/shortly after the new ork codex. Is this rumour grounded or just another imperial guard pipe dream?

I thought GW shafted non Catchen/Cadian IG. It's probably unlikely, unless it has a large fan base.

It would make GW alot of money but it would effectively take the entire market of DKoK away from FW. I think if they make another plastic IG army it will be a unique army. I'd love to see something new for IG plastics.

Same here. Although it's a three-way tie between Tallarn, Valhallen, and Steel Legion for me. I'll just keep dreaming about plastics for any/most of the IG regiments... :-[

Heretics! Krieg is the only way to play IG!

But seriously, if they do come out it will ba interesting for my Witch hunter army as now I will have one more reason to take an Inquisitor in my army (other than the baneblade), as they looked like an alternative to Krieg (different colour scheme).

Just shortly before I left Games Workshop (Warhammer World store) I heard that the Steel Legion were being dropped in favour for plastic Valhallans. However that was a little while ago now and I can't vouch for how valid that still is; all I know is that at the time there were discussions as to plastic 'heavy infantry' (not carapace infantry) as the Catachans fulfil the light role and Cadians the medium role.

Personally I hope they redo the awful Catachan models!

+++I would like plastic steel legion, I could have veterans in my krieg army. Valhalans would be cool as well.+++
