White Dwarf sometimes reveals the new detachments for new release codices, and while we had not seen anything I was curious if the this weeks White Dwarf would have anything on the new detachment.
Are there any hints in White Dwarf on how the Gladius Strike Force Detachment will work?

Not a lot. It talks about a Battle Demi-Company which "forms the heart of a Gladius Strike Force".
The Demi-Company shown consists of:
3 x Tactical Squads
It says the Gladius Strike Force is the most commonly used strike force however there are others.
Lance Strike Force relies on Bikes, Speeders and Transport vehicles.
Javelin Strike Force requires a lot of marines from the 7th Company. The entire Strike Force is deployed by air.
Strike Force Ultra is made up entirely from 1st Company Veterans in Terminator Armour. Deployed by Stormraven, Land Raider & Teleporter.
In another tidbit it mentions an "Armoured Task Force of Vindicators & Thunderfire Cannons " - could well be one of the 12 formations.
