Default New guard codex/models?

If I remember correctly, I've read a few posts here that state a new IG codex is to be released within the next year or two... What are the chances of the old models (praetorians, mordians, valhallans, etc) coming back as plastics?

Probably close to nil, but there are some rumors floating around warseer about greatcoat guard plastics (again). :P

The vostroyans will be going to direct only. The next guard regiment is said to be out in about a year. It hasn't been confirmed but it's speculated by some to be a greatcoat regiment. Possibly with alternate heads to make different regiments but this was brought up by one person on warseer and didn't have any real reliable info to back up that statement.

But what does 'greatcoat regiment' mean? The Terrax Guard which are all trained to be Commissars?

Greatcoats are like DKoK, Valhallans, Terrax Guard etc. Essentially, just long coated uniforms. Here's a wiki with a little more info.

If I had to take a guess at what regiment we'll see I'd put my money on Valhallans or Steel Legion. While Steel Legion might not necessarily qualify as a greatcoat regiment some GW folks seem to have hinted that to be the next plastic box to someone who recently posted info about a new plastic regiment.

I don't know how much info will come up between now and the release but they should definitely be heavy infantry of some sort, possibly with variant bits, but I'm not really convinced of that.

Hopefully, it will come with all sorts of pieces in the sprues, to model a squad of the old regiments, and to even make up your own. That'd be the best...
