From what I've gathered, the basic troops will be plastic, while pretty much everything else will be metal.
As to what they look like...
Turn to page 33 of Codex: Imperial Guard.  I just noticed the resemblence of the Guardsmen there to the descriptions of the new Vostroyans, and I can't believe that I hadn't noticed that before...
Just a thought.

Now that I looked at the pic... That could be them! (Maybe)

Whether they will be made in Metal OR Plastics. By now, I put no hope in GW. If they are out as Plastics, then HOORAY! If Metals, then why does it have to be Metals! (Follow by some ranting) What we need is some solid evidences, but I would just wait to see...

GamesWorkshop store - That what he told me and I trust this guy.

lmfao - as a rule mate - NEVER trust GW staff - they'll have you by the balls when they get your trust!!!! believe in it baby. well its like that in the UK - its all gone pressure sales up here in the northwest - pillocks with no idea of vets or noobs and theyre pushing glue and spray on everyone. i seen a kid get pushed into buying a 40k starter paint set the other day though he's a fantasy player?  >:(

anyway... after that rant...

if these rumours are true (and i think im hoping more than most!) then hello new veterans - they'll also make belting commissars with a bit of choppy sandy work.

damn i hate metal!!!!  ;D

I was a petition to GW that they be plastics!!!

More ability to customize and overall I think plastics on average look better. Plus its easier to work with I'd think and in a way... cheaper--> metal is xpensive.
There are few personal problems that cannot be solved with a proper application of high explosives.

I think the lack of an avatar picture in my profile has intimidated other forum members to refuse a response to my questions. I will thus be searching for a suitable graphic that will lure said members into replying to said forum posts.

I think we'll find that basic Vostroyan Guardsmen are going to be plastic while the Firstborn, officers, spec weapons and the like will be metal.  Heavy weapons I'd think would be all plastic to.  The talk of a new tank though was debunked in the rumor mill, though it did start to sound as though the Ragnarok was going to be released (Chimera hull with a boxy turret, bit like a KV-1 Russian tank from WWII) before it was scraped.

Cheers, Romanus

Edit: Just looking over the release schedule and see that you can get Quote: Imperial Guard Vostroyan Troopers $12.00, so that now makes me think they'll all be metal.

From Alliance Games:

You don't have a $12 blister of troopers if they're plastic.  Once again, the Vostroyans are metal.
