With Book 8 right around the corner a lot of information is coming about and today we have a list of changes to expect on your Legions.
These are posted up I believe originally by Garro.
Note that this only includes comments on rules that have changed and are already in the public arena, so no information is included on the Daemon list or new Astartes units/rules.
Legiones Astartes: Blood Angels - None
Blood Angels Legion-specific wargear - Deathfire on Blade of Perdition clarified - Assault cannons now cost +10 more points to put on vehicles - Assault cannon has special notes about what happens in the case of replacing twin-linked weapons; the replacement is a single weapon - Swapping a Predator Cannon for an Assault Cannon is now +5 points more expensive

Chapter Master Raldoron - None
Legiones Astartes: White Scars - Swift Action no longer triggers buff after moving in the Assault phase, rule only triggers after movement phase (not, this like it always has, still gives the buff in the shooting phase, Pete) - Swift action also no longer gives you a cover save - To Laugh in Death's Face re-worded to prevent you taking more Heavy Support than Fast Attack
White Scars Legion-specific wargear - New toy for Independent Characters! The Shamshir Jetbike! Basically a Scimitar with a different gun called the Scatterbolt Launcher. - Power Glaive increased by +10 points
RoW: Chogorian Brotherhood - Heavy Support even more restricted, to a max of one! - Addition downside of bonus VP's for the enemy if they kill all your bikes/jetbikes - Oddly, not been updated to include the Shamshir Jetbike for the character.
