Some more Chaos Legions rumors to begin our week with. Obliterators getting new weapons, and varying levels of eternal warrior coming. While not a lot to dig into, for a Monday morning its a great way to start off.

Please remember to take these with the standard salt, these are rumors and should be treated as such.

Just some quick news:
*Obliterators: Get more then just "energized" weapons, which may include hvy auto-cannon and missle launcher.

*Special Characters: Several get varying levels of Eternal Warrior (1-3), which includes Abaddon, Kharn and Typhus and 2 others.

*Characters/HQs: A few more options for mid-level characters which according to Legion, can be taken as HQ slots (two for one) or as a separate Elite or Fast or Troop choice that can be split off? Maybe like a unit of Dark Apostles that can then split off as squad leaders? Not sure on this exactly. My buddy often talks to quickly!

  1. That "leaked" 6th edition codex had different levels of Eternal Warrior. Interesting.

    Sounds like Chaos and DA get their versions of Wolf Guard/Crypteks?

  2. Oblits with butcher cannons and havoc missile launchers? Please please please please...

  3. If an older rumour of larger sized squads of Obliterators proves true, coupled with the rumour of plastic Obliterators, and tripled by the rumour of yet more firepower, this is a must have squad!

    OUCH!

    1. The current price (and the fact that they are still metal) has put me off buying them so far. If these rumours are true, I want Obliterators!

    2. "theDarkGeneral reports Obliterators maximum unit size is increased to 4"

      That was from December. The plastic rumour I can't seem to find but sure I heard "plastic or finecast" somewhere. But we can all hope for plastic.

      If not, I'm thinking a box of Terminators, Green Stuff and a load of weapons. Perhaps some daemon/mutation bits. Probably work out cheaper than metal or finecast!

    3. Plastic would give more options and variety in the kit, finecast would make them character-style kits, with only one or two options (probably even less than they have at the moment).
      And of course, plastic would be cheaper, so it would be easier to build my Cult of Destruction...

  4. I pray to god that eternal warrior in 6ed will not happen, and that 6ed does not make things way to confussing.

    1. too confusing. I believe what you're trying to say is, too confusing.

  5. Large Oblit squads will only be worth it with points cost reduction and ability to split fire. Otherwise, pfeh and double pfeh.

    And the "varying levels of Eternal Warrior" as a tie-in to the B.S. "leak" lends negative credibility to this rumor, IMO.

  6. The "leaked" rules not with standing, EW will be reworked for 6th Edition, you can take that to the bank. It's a mechanic that has needed tweaking since 3rd Edition, and everyone who has been playing the game since then knows it.

  7. You know, this really makes me think about the leak, and how many leaks of that dimension proved false in the past (hint: the answer is none).

  8. Chaos rumors feel thin to me right now. Can't quite put my finger on why, though.
