The Galaxy Trembles as Chaos Approaches


A few small fleeting rumors are running around discussing the upcoming Chaos Marine codex. The first of which, claims that Chaos Marines will be released the month after 6th edition hits the stands. There is also mention of a new land raider again, but with a troop capacity of 15-16 models.

Please remember that these are rumors and to please take them with a grain of salt.

Further rumors - in around 2 months time we should see 6th and the following month the CSM Dex, building on the CSM released in the 6th starter.
A double month of CSM coming up soon.

My source supports the CSM HQ being the stat or force chart changer theory that has been rolling around, but as he hasn't seen the rules I guess he is simply speculating on reverb.

Unlike when he received the Nid codex a month and a half early, nothing of that sort is out yet for 6th or CSM. If the books and dexs have been printed already, they are still under wraps and heavily guarded, probably with overwatch in full effect.

According to my contacts, we're about 2 months away from a Chaos Invasion, so let the galaxy tremble!!!
New Land Raider: Transport Capacity 15 or 16 models. Name is still not known

  1. I hope more revised information to form a Battle Sisters or Ecclesiarchy Force will arrive in 2013. Some codices (even WD ones) to deploy Ordo Hereticus/Malleus/Xeno forces. I would like to see good rules for campaigns too.

    1. A lot of eggs in one basket to place an Abbadon deathstar in such a tank (given you will fill it also)

    2. Chaos is exactly the kind of place I'd expect a nice, beefy Deathstar unit. If it can really fit 16, then that's 8 Terminator models.. That's Abaddon and another HQ with 6 more kitted out Terminators, hopefully with some legion rules, in an AV14 box with 4 hull points. Yes please. Time to duel some Paladins and WIN.

    3. every team will set all they got every turn on that unit, paladins will probably back away while what ever GK have for long range nibble trough land raider and squad

    4. Not if you are as bad of a player as me and my group! CHAAAARGE! Deathstar to the rescue!

      May your skull throne be covered in sparkly helmets.

    5. It's good to know, Mathias, that your paladins are already afraid of a theoretical Chaos Deathstar unit in a Land Raider.

      This bodes well for Chaos.

  3. Very excited for the 6th ed fluff and CSM codex. WHile not nearly as broken as some other codexes out there CSM does have some issues, and since they are the main protagonist in the 40K storyline, im excited to see a good dex for them, and more chaos players at the table.

  4. Please be as good as Chaos 3.5, please be as good as Chaos 3.5, please be as good as Chaos 3.5... *chant*
    A other Land Raider than the old Godhammer is long overdue, too.

    1. Please be better than all of the other Codices before, please be better than all of the other Codices before...

    2. I think it might be Phobos pattern actually. IIRC, Godhammer is the pattern of lascannons.
      And yes, we can only pray that it will be as good as codex 3.5, and better than all codices currently in use. [and I wouldn't mind a power of the machine spirit equivalent too]

    3. Just checked, Forge World Land Raider Proteus has a rule called Infernal Device for CSM, which is identical to power of the machine spirit. Take note, Games Workshop, for Forge World knows how to please its customers.

  5. *looks at his 10k Points of Chaos* Let the Galaxy Burn !

  6. Looking at my 15k points thinking of how to screw the galaxy then the inferior 10k point army!!

  7. Be prepared to be disappointed if you believe what tdg is saying. Some of what he says may pan out only because he has flooded the web with so much crap that he's bound to get a thing or two correct.

  8. Ten bucks says the new Landraider will be black with spikes, or black with skulls...

    1. Let the galaxy burn, and our foes tremble, for the time of Chaos is overdue. Let the blood flow from the sides of our enemies, as our name burns across the stars for all eternity - The Spiky Hedgehog Space Marines With Skullz (TM).
      Jokes aside, I'd quite like it if there was a kit for the new land raider as well, and world eater armies will certainly be happy, as they can now fit two units inside one land raider!

  9. Put more eggs in that basket, I love it.
