 Same here.  My order status still says "Shipping Pending", or something like that.  Hopefully FF will send out an email or post an update on when we can expect to see the new expansions ship soon...

 Yes, same situation here. I still wonder, what do these new marines do? Can anyone who already got the expansion tell us? ;)

chaplain

attack makes the defending gs not attack 16b

support increases the black teams defense by one for each support token 4b

move and activate allows u too turn around to marines from another squad  7b

orange cyclone team

attack auto destroy 3 gs unless u roll a zero 17b think heroic charge

move space marines can move twice 9b

support u also place a support token on a gs swarm which is a support token which only works with that swarm

 For those that have the expansions how many cards are in each?  (Ordering sleeves for them and need to know how many I need)  Thanks. :)

Space Marine Pack has 18 cards (4 Marines, 8 Marine Team cards, 6 Action cards for the new teams) and Mission Pack has 17 card (1 Hull Breach Terrain, 12 Location cards and 4 Adrenal Genestealers).

 My biggest disappointment with the exp packs are the cards do NOT feel the same as the original cards.  They are not textured, look more glossy, and feel a bit more flimsy than the cards in original set.  Luckily, none of the cards are meant to be shuffled into the existing decks, so there is no conflict or NEED to have card protectors, they just look/feel off.  

In order to avoid ending on a downer, I LOVE the team cards replacing the team markers.   It makes it so much easier to choose teams randomly, and they make a nice place to put your action cards.  I like to place the current action card under the team card to show what I cannot use next turn.

I'll sleeve them regardless, so I'm more disappointed with the new locations having red backs instead of greens . Once I get my POD cards, will probably switch to building the hulk on the fly, so when each travel occurs, roll a die (there are now 5 locations for each number I think) and pick that one. That way won't know if I'm heading into a green or a red location.

I think the reason is, the expansion packs are sorted as separate categories on BGG. Just type "Death Angel" in the search window and there you go.

Speaking of the differences between core and expansion cards, I really don´t mind that much. A little difference of the marine cards will disappear under the sleeve, and the red back of the mission cards... well, entering them won´t be that surprising, that´s true.

Could be, but I doubt it, since the images are not even under the Space Marine Pack listing. The links I posted had both the Black and Orange team orders listed in the same manner as here:

www.boardgamegeek.com/image/810055/space-hulk-death-angel-the-card-game

I think it is more likely FFG asked the images to be removed so people couldn't just print out the images and use them, not buying the products.

I sleeved mine (friend who ordered them brought them over yesterday) so don't know about feel difference and they still all fit into the box. Next packs will probably require me to grab one of the bigger boxes like Secrets of Arkham Deluxe expansion for Call of Cthulhu to store Death Angel. I'm going to play first two games with Red only cards, then go to my build-hulk-on-the-fly approach, rolling a die whenever I travel and picking that numbered location from the stack of 5, so won't know if I'm going into Green or Red. Of course, drawing the Green team today, lost the first game without even seeing the final location. Stupid Green !
