40k: New Space Marine Rhino Rumors

First of let me say that I love the Space Marine Rhino. I have 6 of them. So the nerf to them with the addition of hull points in 6th edition was a major blow to Mech lists. The new Eldar codex did give me hope though that GW might be bringing back some Mech love however, so I was excited to read the following quote.

via The Emperor Himself on Warseer
Rhino variants to include a command Rhino, a medic Rhino and an armoured recovery Rhino. Each of these can be purchased as upgrades for the basic Rhino and provide enhancements to their Space Marine squad. Dreadnoughts to provide bonuses to nearby units owing to their 'Inspiring Presence'. These developments are inline with the design philosophy behind the new Codex to promote synergies between units to increase the tactical depth of Space Marines.

This information has been "verified" on a few different sites as well.

One of the rumors also floating around is that the "armored recovery Rhino" will increase the armor on all sides by +1, but reduce the total capacity, but I'll believe that when I see it.

Other Rumor is that the Medic Rhino provided Feel No Pain to all Marines within 6" of it, which would be huge if true.

The Dreadnought bonus also sounds interesting as I love dreadnoughts, but feel that the majority of them are currently too weak unless run in numbers. Also, if you would like to get a better idea of what 'Inspiring Presence' is, look up the inrto to the 1st "Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War" game. Watch it in HD.

If that doesn't get you motivated, then you're dead inside.
