From what I've heared it'll include rules for masses of drop pods, teleporting attacks and the like that goes beyond the scope of the codexes.

Imagine ranks of Fire Warriors repelling from Mantas and you have the idea

Planetstrike's been postponed for the time being. It was supposedly going to be released this summer but was delayed due to the 5th ed timetable. Its likely not going to be released until next year, hopefully in the spring but individual components are being moved into other release waves, such as the Marine Drop Pod and the Guard Valkyrie.

It seems to be, but we won't know for sure until there's more info. As for a spring release, I'm not too sure, we've already got marines, dark elves, hordes of chaos, space wolves, dark eldar, imperial guard and necrons rumoured to be in the works.

I have seen the same idea in a rumored codex orbital assult a while back. And it has not shown up yet so I am thinking this could be made up.

This was rumored to be codex orbital assult a while back but it seems to be the same idea. It was back in October before we even new 5th edition was coming out in July that this started. Even Cadaver the mod ended up be pretty sceptical about this the last time it was brought up. Link to old thread http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=54813.30

Frankly I'm skeptical about most rumours I hear until I see some evidence to hint otherwise and this is no different. However, the rumours perpetuation in addition to the release of a plastic drop pod and the rumoured plastic Valkyrie for the Guard may hint as to some foundation to the rumours. I'm still skeptical however as, like I said in the last thread based on this rumour, I can't see much scope for this release. Other than maybe one or two scenario's and maybe a few apoc. style datasheets I can't see what you'd put in this book.

I think games where rather than the board being two sided, everyone is mixed together form the start would be awesome.
