The 30th Anniversary model is based on the original Space Marine model, with his pre-Bolter combi-weapon and circular plate on the shoulder.
Check out the cool modern-era bayonet BTW.
The model will be around $50 AUD/ $30 US or free if you spend some large amount of money - probably around $160 US...or $14,000 AUD! :(
Quite a bit for one model - which is a shame - as we could have recreated this scene (right) from Rogue Trader with the first scratchbuilt Land Raider

There is much anticipation about what exactly the special miniature available on April 16th will be to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the launch of Games Workshop's incarnation of the Space Marine.
So far we have heard rumours of everything from a MKVI boxed set (one can only hope) to another Captain with a Power Fist and Cape *YAWN*.
Well Games Workshop in Australia had a few tantalising hints on their Facebook today that might just give us an idea of what to expect.
There will be an EXCLUSIVE Miniature and Book available to buy on the day (No pre-order!), and every purchase made on the day will include a FREE commemorative pinbadge and art card!"
So at least now we know that there will be a Space Marine and a book to BUY, but that's not all...
"Purchase a White Dwarf Magazine to enter which includes an undercoated Space Marine. You have 30 minutes to paint it as best as you can!"
So is White Dwarf coming with an undercoated Space Marine? Sounds like it...
As much as a MKVI boxed set or even the Horus Heresy MKIV boxed set would be awesome, my bet will be on one of the cool new ones from the Space Marine Paint Set which seems to be a nicely detailed semi-multi-part, brand new miniature. Not as exciting, but still kind of cool!
I'm not exactly sure how these will fit into any of my current forces, but these heads could be used on Imperial Guard to make Adeptus Arbites or even vehicle crew on Space Marine tanks. They would make really good Grey Knights or Death Guard heads.
As far as investment goes, they weren't expensive and arrived within two weeks.
If you're looking for something different, why not give these, or one of their other designs a go?!
There's a new game in the Tom Clancy franchise which has been teasing players for years now.
First seen at E3 in 2013, it's an open world RPG that mixes the play of Ghost Recon with the adventuring aspects of games like World of Warcraft. I've played the Beta and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Well there's a really cool tool on The Division's website that shows how fast a pandemic like the one depicted in the game would spread. Making it even better is that fact you can personalise it to your home, your hospital and your shopping centre.
Click on the picture below, give it a go and watch the death toll rise as the pandemic hits you...
