Retribution book 6 - what's coming and more

So talking with a few of the guys from Forge World here are a few things we have learnt so far about the next book:

-Will be available from the Horus Heresy Weekender
-Rites of Wars for Blood Angels, Dark Angels, White Scars and Shattered Legions. Possible new Rites for certain legions
-Tylos Rubio is being worked on right now by Israel
-No characters/units for new legions
-There will be a Meduson character that can be used as a HQ for all Shattered Legion armies. As he is so close with the Raven Guard and Salamanders he can be used in different army lists with the alternative Rites of War
-Certain equipment will be mentioned for each legion such as multi plasma arrangements for the Dark Angels and a special Glaive hand to hand weapon for 
the White Scars.
-The Keshig will be upcoming for White Scars as well as a Bike squad (but not this book). 
-A new bike has been finished by Blake. 
-Mastodon and Stormbird will appear

Further info we have also found out:

-Darren Parwood is working on a new knight (A Heavy variant - Castellan like). 
-A new air field display board is being worked on / planned which will feature the new Stormbird and Thunderhawk Landing pad tiles, which is not being released until the Stormbird is finished (which is apparently so big it might go through the tile!!). 
Stormbird is currently in printing production. Possible first appearance at Weekender
