It seems like the rumors coming for the future Chaos Legions book are just coming and coming. Perhaps this is because it is what people want, but it baffles me that we are not hearing more Tau and Black Templar (assuming they really are coming early next year).

Either way, I still love hearing new Chaos Legions rumors. They definitely will be my next "new" army.


Please take with the standard salt. Rumors are rumors until we have codex in hand.

I'm glad ghost21 was able to confirm my early reply about Warsmiths and Dark Apostles, and World Eaters w/Bolters...

Here's more tidbits over a few shots of bourbon and some cigars...
*Chaos Dreads: No longer crazed or deranged, and new plastic (FINALLY) sprue to incorporate some new/old dreadnought close combat weapons types (chainfist, thunderhammer, power scourge, etc.)...but i'm more excited about being able to have Marked Dreads!!!

*Assault Berzerkers! Finally, Berzerkers with jump packs counting as Fast Attack!

*Slaughterfiends from Apoc will make their way into the Codex, along with versions for "Marked" type ones for other Legions.

*HQs making a return (lil' salt): Droomrider, Doombreed, Cypher , along with 5 newish guys.

*Unit size changes: Oblitz can come in up to 4, while most Daemon Engines can be 3 for 1...

*New Landraider: So we no longer have to suffer with just the old crumby one, has a higher capacity (15?) but is more of "warped" version of one of the Imperial versions.

*Force Org Chart: As ghost21 has alluded to, it won't change according to your Legion (HQs) as in swapping more Heavies for less Fast, but your access to units in those categories opens up, becomes limited, or closes off accordingly. Easy example I was given, is taking Khorne Daemon Prince means no Scouts...

I mean there is to be a "scout unit", but no associated with the World Eaters.

And as Brother Dimetrius has already mentioned, Cypher indeed was a Chaos model, and appeared in at least one of our previous Codexes. Could that mean a hint at Dark Angels around the bend? I think that'd be very cool, especially considering they are the FIRST Legion...

*Nightlords: I don't ask much about them, though a lil' i have for my buddy Paul has around 25,000+ points of them...Hit & Run and Stealth for universal special rules, but possible counter attack (for elite unit) as well as jump pack troops.

*Possessed: FINALLY getting some love, and according to Legion, they will have upgrades either already included or that you can pay for.

*Word Bearers: Apparently getting a lil' extra attention, and besides Dark Apostles, new models for "daemonancers", which just might be unit champs/sgt upgrades. I'm not sure. BUT, their summoning of Daemons from the Warp apparently allows re-rolls on the scatter dice, as well as new mishap chart!

*Deathguard: Feel no pain and blight grenades for their Cult Terminators, new nasty flamers upgrades.

*Thousand Sons: AP3 bolters will be MUCH more useful under 6th Edition, and a couple new Psychic abilities, one of which (supposedly) can remove an entire enemy squad from the table on a failed stat test!

*Iron Warriors: Access to Thunder Hammer & Storm Shield termies, thunderfire cannon off-shoot, Havocs w/Tank Hunters and relentless for some squad...

*Emperor's Children: Lash is finally changed to be more in line with Daemon version. More heavy weapons upgrade count for larger units. Better Bikes? Not sure what that means...

*Alpha Legion: Lots of infiltrating abilities, outflanking, and even temporary control of enemy squads/vehicles...basically sneaky bastards!

*Black Legion: HQs allow broader access to all unit types, but lack of better universal special rules.

there are downsides to chaos units, nurgle cant do sweeping advances(i think thats what there called, n are stoic ), khorne has to engage in some kind of combat every turn or suffer a d6 result, tzzench (sp, ooooh i hate that word)are mindless automatons, who need a command figure or suffer a d6 result to guide there actions, and slaanesh well lets say they have very harsh results

as ive said, it will probably be the first or second 6th ed book, 6th ed is slated for jully i think (but also i have bb then... so i dunno), so anything upto 4 months after that (n this is the Legions book, not the renegades)

  1. I hope this is all wrong! I can't afford to collect an army until summer and don't want a VERY COOOOOL army upsetting my Necron plans.

    Seriously, all this sounds awesome!

  2. @ terrible T
    don´t worry it will take a while till ALL kits are released and according to this rumor, this looks like Okt. or Sep. releas. ^^


    All this sound a lil too good to be true!!!
    T5 FNP termis? i guess the point costs will ruin it in the end :/

  3. T5 FnP Terminators. As if Paladins weren't enough trouble already. And I6 Power / force weapon dudes.
    I was wondering, what kind of rule changes would be needed in 6th ed. to make Nids at least marginally competitive :)
    Put things aside, I'm really starting to like all the Chaos Legions rumors... Got to stop myself from thinking about starting another army...

  6. @Warlord22

    I was going to get daemons but got sick of waiting for Ku'gath and plastic plaguebearers. Then cooler armies came out: Dark Eldar minis are wow and, so far, Necrons are good. You could well be right and the waiting puts me off Legions.

    @Dobi

    I feel your pain. I haven't even got codex Dark Eldar yet. Last thing I need is a 3rd cool army tempting me. No fair!

    Muuust beeeee stronggggg! Muuuust resisssst!

  8. Why is it that everyone who generates rumors on the internet are horrible with the English language?

  9. TH and SS combined with lots of heavy guns = i really hope that 6th ed changes the way the game plays otherwise my second favorite army (Iron Warriors) will just be another band wagon army.

    Hopefully I'll be able to dust of my basilisk once more.

    I think we're hearing more about Chaos because lots of people like thme but since the puppies dex overshadows the current Chaos SM, it's just not worth dusting them off.

  10. Y que pasa con la Legión Negra! Es la única que no tiene nada especial!!! Espero que les den más amor!

    And what about Black Legion! Is the only one without especials!!! I hope to give them more love!
