Hmm, hopefully it isn't just a Panzer Corps reskin. Not that I don't like PC, but 40k cries out for something a bit different, a smaller scale, more tactical sort of gameplay IMO.
Judging by how packed up are the unit, a PC reskin is exactly what it is.
Personally, I'd prefer if it were a Steel Panthers or BftB reskin.
I'm conflicted about buying the game at all though, because Games Workshop is run by crazy people. They have attempted to claim the generic, decades old term "space marine" as theirs alone.
The approach of Games Workshop to the IP stuff is pretty vile, especially that they basically sewn their setting from fragments of other settings.
They actually had nerve to attempt trademarking "Eldar" which was created by J.R.R. Tolkien.
They are massive rip off artists. To the point that their 3rd edition Tyranids have looks ripped off from Zerg.
They ripped off Chaos from Michael Moorcock.
By the way, here's Michael Moorcock's post on their approach to IP:
Did they succeed at trademarking "space marine" or did justice and sanity finally prevail?

Without social solidarity manifested in the form of welfare state, people inhabiting one territory are a non-nation of mortal enemies engaged in competition for survival.
