If you want to know what the new Codex will look like, I will send you to three locations:

Here.
Here.
And, finally, here.

The rest is just copy-pasting your Chapter's colours in.

Well, the formation of the Combat Squads (or whatever they`re called), the layout, the options available for the units, and so on, will be very similar.

Just get all the Chapter-specifics out, and you have the Codex: "Vanilla Marines".

Whatever you've been smoking is not legal. The new format is far superior.

I agree with wargamer, the list allows no cheesy uber units which is good plus the format allows a tactical squad to serve its fluffy purpose, be able to tacticly deal in any situation against any opponet. Now I will admit, GW usually dosent seem like the sharpest knife in the cuttery set but I think they did a great job with the new marines codexes and even some codexes in general.

The system of placing all the squad's options next to the squad seems much easier, especially when an army list has to be thrown together and eliminates confusion and stupid moves. Like putting Terminator Armor on a Scout sargent. Yes, that technically is legal in vanilla marines codex. And someone would do that to say "I have a Terminator! YAY!!!" No, thats stupid. THEY'RE SCOUTS!
