Steel Legions were one of my favorite guard releases from back in 3rd edition. Of course they were all metal back then.... but loved them so much I had bought multiple boxes of them. Now it seems that rumors are coming in that the Steel Legion will part of the Astra Militarum releases in 8th edition about the same time Orks come. Here are the latest rumors.
Rumors via sources on Faeit 212
I was told something about the new Astra Militarum.. apparently they're going to be Armageddon Steel Legion and they're coming out at the same time as new Orks. (Armageddon campaign I think).
The Ork teasers from a few weeks ago (wheels with spikes) and the laspistol we saw the other week are from those new kits.
