Faster, Bloodier, and Turning into a Blood Thirsty Warlord


This morning we have a small rumor set that was posted in response to the rumors coming out of Tastytaste, Grant, and Bols. This rumor back tracks a little bit on a couple things as far as new special characters, legion specific armies, and a few other things.

Part of this resonates with other sources I have heard, the part about 6th edition...."the game is faster, bloodier and will turn you into a blood thirsty warlord who cant wait for his next fight".

Please remember that these are rumors and to be held as such. I did edit these a little from the original comments. If you are interested in the original comments, they are found below in the link. These rumors were put up in the comment section of this blog a few days ago, and are simply transferred to here.

I have not had the opportunity to discuss these with warmaster outside of the blog, so please take the following with a good amount of salt. They conflict with previous rumors and the part where special characters make it into the codex from the writings of the Black Library I find hard to take. However, I do see some similarities, enough to say that there just might be some truth in here as well.

i've been content till now to sit back and watch...but i think nows the time to chime in.concerning the soon coming chaos legions.....lets say "theoretically"(to protect my source)i have a close friend in game development.they have assured me that the new codex will be everything we debased chaos junkies have been hoping for and more!!!!!!

first,legions will be able to fight the way they are meant to, and with the way 6th editions % system will work,the armys will be even more legion specific playable.....

word bearers with all possessed as troops,or iron warrior armys with insane amounts of heavy weapons,all terminator black legion armys!!!!!also,dreadnaughts are not being replaced....they are being made even meaner and will have more weapon options-and NO RANDOM EFFECTS!!!!

there will be new characters...can you say little horus, honsou, argel tal, korpharon, the soul hunter...just to name a few.

existing characters will be made meaner and more playable(cost less).also,the new fluff is -as i was told-mind blowing,melt your brain down for a week!!!!

about 6th edition,i was told that it will blow your mind once you actually play it,the game is faster,bloodier and will turn you into a blood thirsty warlord who cant wait for his next fight!!!!!!

for those of you who are already complaining about the future with 6th edition i say this......wait and give it a chance,my source has told me that gw has been listning to us and that 90% of 6th edition was made with the input of veteran players

word has it all cult troops will be cheaper, and that the thousand sons magik abilities will make peoples heads spin!!!!basically chaos WILL BE THE BAD BOYS OF LEGEND.

  2. Look, I love what I'm reading… but it looks like the poster just read these rumours somewhere else and added "WILL BLOW YOUR MIND" to every one of them. Wishlisting, hyperbole and excitement – in no way a crime, but not really adding anything either.
    Just saying.

  3. Fingers crossed. When are the legions rumoured to be released?

  4. I don't trust anyone who uses that many capitals and exclamation points. Reminds of shit British tabloid papers like The Sun.

    1. Yeah, that raises alarm bells for me too. It's like "LOOK AT MEEEE!!!! DOESN'T ANYONE LOVE ME?!?!1?1?

  5. Multiple exclamation marks, whole sentances in capital letters followed by yet more multiple exclamation marks? Sorry, I need to cut down my salt intake and this one, even if it weren't for the excited fanboy squeeing would require an ocean full of salt.

  6. I can tell you this for certainly that there are no regular units in the chaos codex. It is purely special characters and named characters. it will be the super ultra elite army with only 4-10 models at the 1500 point level. It will be SO FREAKING GREAT! THERE IS NOT ENOUGH EXCITEMENT FOR THIS!

    1. Now this rumor I like!

    2. Lies. Please explain how that is logical is any way? 4 to 10 models, GWs would not make crap worth of money and where is your proof.

  7. Smells like Ghost's rumours from months ago...

    1. EXACTLY. That's what put me off!
      "Friend in game development" "Listening to veteran players"
      no. Never.
      The only players GW listens to is their own in-house players who do not understand why anyone would play competitively.
      "*head scratch* so why aren't you bringing spawn? Any chaos warband would have a few from failed champions..."
      *facepalm*
      BECAUSE SPAWN SUCK BOLS!
      though they'll probably be amazing in the next book. Notice how each new codex requires buying all the new models in order to be effective? Like, tyranids? So long, dakkafexes, hello, Tyrannofexes and Hive Guard!

  9. Does seem a little suspect, but rumors are rumors, and always nice to have more to read

  10. No way they're putting in BL characters.

  11. While I do think this sounds like wish-listing in a lot of ways, I am in fact inclined to believe this line of Chaos Legions rumors as opposed to the more tame stuff from Tastytaste and the rest.

    With the exception of 5th Ed CSM and Tyranids, each new codex has been a varying degree of awesome, designed to sell armies, not models, armies, they WANT you to buy that book and start adding that army to your collection, already have that army? They want you to add more. Since CSM has been a red-headed step child for nearly all of 5th ed I just don't see GW giving people a reason to be discouraged with the new Chaos Legions book.

    Just look at the Codex breakdown for Adepticon 2012, it was dominated with 5th edition codices, all in good numbers, with the exception of CSM, Daemons and Tyranids. GW may be a little quirky in their business decisions but I have to think they pay attention to stuff like this.

  12. Sounds like something my little brother would write.

  13. I hope to high hell that these are true, but I have my doubts. Black Library characters is one of the main points that make me lift an eyebrow. I think I recall a GW employ once stating that there are actual legal issues that prevent them from pulling more BL stuff into the games. Might be wrong, though.
    Possessed as troops for Word Bearers is a brilliant idea, anyway. Loss of daemons wouldn't hit them very hard if that was the case.
    Also: "Multiple exclamation marks are a sure sign of a diseased mind."

    1. What about ragnar Blackmane for the space wolves? he started off as a novel character for BL but is now in the codex with a really bad looking model and a few rules that dont make sense.

      Delete
    2. How about the malus darkblade series? I know it's fantasy but that guy became a nifty hero choice for dark elves

      Delete
    3. Might be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure Ragnar was around before BL, my 2nd ed rulebook already had the mini depicted. Black Library however was founded at some point in the late 90s, 98 or something.
      No idea about Malus, though. Any thoughts?

      Delete
    4. I am concerned because the Soul Hunter is listed as one of the heroes, and he very obviously dies in the books, although there is a successor to his gene seed.

    5. @Norrikan

      My brother has had a Ragnar Blackmane model since 2nd Edition. Back when Blood Claws were metal and special characters could purchase wargear.

      My brother liked giving Ragnar a jump pack and vortex grenade.

      The books came much later.

  14. first,i would like to say that im not looking to be accredited for anything....as i said in my original post,this is the first time i've posted anything on this sight or any other.normally im content to sit back and wait till a new dex is released,but since iim an iron warrior nut,and the fact that gw isnt going to give any news,good or otherwise,i had to say something.i trust my source...and anonymous is right,they are paying attention-they knew our current codex was a joke the day it was released-and there bound not to make that mistake twice!!!all armies are gonna be ramped up,not just chaos.there is also a big push to make the new timeline mesh with the novels,current and future,hence adding characters from the novels to build your army around.and as far as the capital letters and exclamation marks......I HAVE BEEN IN THE WARP FAR TO LONG!!!!!!!!!!

    2. The only thing that worries me about this is Argel Tal is killed on Terra by Sangunius. And it looks like Horus Aximand will more than likely be killed by Loken.

    3. I don't buy it at all, 2 word bearers characters ? I doubt that. This reminds me of the discredited ghost21 rumours to be honest.
      Only time will tell but as far as rumours go both Tastytaste and Grant seem to be giving us rumours (leaks) that just sound far more plausible.

  16. Sounds good, almost to good. I'll wait and see what the Codex brings.

  17. i was told that honsou was on miniature release list too and this is the kinda stuff iv been told.

    why would GW not bring out any NEW Special Character?

    They make a load more money cuz we wanna buy them. just do the math!

    1. Chaos already has more than enough SC's - they just need some that provide a compelling reason to buy them. Intorudcing new SC's would be expensive and reduce the profitability per product of the existing SC's. I also gather it's fair investment to begin production of a new model, so they'll be cautious of diversifying the product line too much vs increasing volume of existing products.

  18. What was the last codex that didnt introduce a new special character?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Discounting the WD SoB codex, the last codex not introducing new characters was Dark Angels, if I remember correctly. And even that one you could argue about in regards to the inclusion of Belial.
      In fact, just about every codex of the last few years has introduced at least three SCs.

  19. Wait... so chaos will be even more over powered?

    1. Were certain army builds in 3.5 OP? Yes. Did Chaos need balancing? Yes. Did that happen hell no every single unit got nerfed plus we lost Daemons. The only cult troops worth their points IMO are plague marines hence the reason why you see Lash Princes, Plague marines, and Oblits running around in all competitive Chaos army lists.

      Delete
    2. @first anon: I'm sorry you get stomped by a chaos player, that must be traumatic.
      But don't get any delusions of OP'ness.
      have you ever played grey knights? As daemons? And won? No? Then go back to your hole, anon.
      you're either afraid of retribution or too lazy to get an account.

  20. New stuff in this post: Word Bearer with all Possessed Troops
    SC Argel Tal, Korpharon and The Soul Hunter (unless it's suppose to be Korpharon, the Soul Hunter).
    The rest has been posted before or is of no worth (like "thousand sons magik abilities will make peoples heads spin", this is opinion based and unless you can lift up units and spin them around has no real value as a rumour).
