Upon closer investigation, the last Codex: Space Marines did come out before the rebranded Codex: Adepta Sororitas ... though only by 1 month.
I guess we'll see. But I already miss "my old 40k". Did I mention I don't like the new minis, either? Especially the Space Marines just look so incredibly ... overladen, almost cluttered with random gear and skulls that is no longer decorative but lets them look like a walking circus attraction rather than a veteran warrior that actually gets to see and fight on a battlefield from time to time.
I admit, this new design philosophy might make for an even more unique appearance of the franchise, but at the same time it loses its "there is only war" military look. Really, some of those new minis are the tabletop equivalent of some kid designing their website and thinking it absolutely needs to have animated star background, flashing gifs, and comic sans because it draws attention. Just that in 40k, the flashing gifs are skulls.
The newest example of what has triggered this fit of nerdrage in me is GW's current "buy 80 bucks worth of stuff and get this dude for free" design here, who ... .. why the feth would anyone ever hold a stormbolter like that?! Also, skulls.
