So rumors are coming in that Chaos Space Marines are not going to be released in August. In reality they are saying that the Chaos Space Marines codex is not featured in the White Dwarf, which essentially is the same thing. If this is the case, and these rumors are panning out to be true, are we looking at September release like Neil was predicting? or are we going to have to be waiting for October.

here is the latest in the rumor mill. Please take with a grain of salt.

I can confirm for you all that codex Chaos Space Marines will be released in October at the earliest.


The White Dwarf features Daemons. Lots of them but no Chaos Marines. The month after is the 40k starter box so that means no codex until October. I'm a bit bummed out by this but I suppose it gives me longer to save up.


However the boxed game sounds like it's going to be pretty sweet so perhaps I won't actually have any money left.

So in next months white dwarf there is going to be a leaflet with updates for Codex daemons and daemons in fantasy.
Some changes to old units, flamers are now only S4 in fantasy and some units have had point changes. ect.
Also new units slannesh massive chariot (2D6 +1 impact hits) and other weird chariot thing in 1 kit. the other thing looks and acts kind of like a mobile meat lawnmower. this is in both games and acts like a chariot in 40K.
also soul grinders are coming to fantasy! has T7 6 wounds and a load of upgrades for its shooting. looks pretty mental. the model (40K kit) in the white dwarf and leaflet was on the same base as the giant goblin spider.
also new models for plague bearers (really really nice, some have fly heads) screamers (look similar but with lots of eyes), flamers (similar) and nurgalings (looks like a pile of funny little germ monsters you might get in a dish washer advert).
Also new beastman shaman.
should be out next week :).

    4. We'll see what is what soon. So many conflicting rumors at this point, it's just insane. I do wish they would just release the shit already though. It wouldn't be TOO bad though if they did demons + fliers in August, Chaos SM + Starter Box in September, and DA in October. But if CSM get pushed all the way out to October, I'll be a sad dude.

  5. This is disappointing but the thing I took away from it is that GW might be open to start changing old units stats/points costs. This could be a huge development! Just think about the possibilities for units such as DE Mandrakes, etc. So pretty yet so useless.

  13. Complete BS. I hope their screw up of 6th edition deliveries had nothing to do with this, like if they pushed back the csm release to make sure they "get it right". it would be very disappointing if we get punished for their mistakes.

    ReplyDelete
  14. What was the screw up with the rule book deliveries?

    Atleast this will also give chaos players solid allies to use and maybe of benefit for chaos summoning demons.

    1. Some people who pre-ordered directly from GW didn't get their rulebooks and other items on time, with the average person getting it roughly a week late, while a ew even had to wait almost 2 weeks after release. The screw up was on GW's end somewhere, whether directly their fault or purely on the company that ships their product, I'm not sure. And I agree with this atleast giving Chaos Daemons as an ally a boost to current CSM players. While I am disappointed if this is true, it is still far from a total loss for my Death Guard and Word Bearers

  16. I love that on the one hand people are saying GW are morons but on the other they are desperate to buy stuff.

    You may not like how they do it and find it as frustrating as the rest of us but they aren't trying to make friends. They're a business. They're extremely good at what they do. If they weren't they would be broke by now. Yes, they make mistakes but so do all businesses.

    They want to release CSM as much as we want to buy them. If they have delayed them its for a reason.

  18. Considdering the sheer lack of new releases rumoured for this "Daemon Wave" and the fact it says soul grinders for WFB and that its only one guy saying this while 20+ others are saying CSM's im still holding out hope.

    I will be seriously annoyed about this though. besides loads of people are saying they will release leaked codex info within the next 48 hours meaning they either already have copies or know people who do.

    this Daemons and Flyers nonsense popped up out of nowhere and CSM's have been rumoured for ages now.

    besides someone posted a reply to the Warseer post about this stating that the new Dreadnaught looks like an Obliterator on Roids and the new CC Oblits are called Maulers.

    all im saying is the WD August preview shows both CSM's and Daemons and suggests a heavy focus on Allies...meaning the smart thing to do would be to... anyone?

    Release CSM's at the start of the month and a Daemon wave in the latter half, thus reinforcing the Allies theme.

    GW should pay me to plan their releases!

  20. There are indeed alot of conflicting rumours.

    via Erazmus_M_Wattle on Warseer:

    "I can confirm for you all that codex Chaos Space Marines will be released in October at the earliest."

    How sure is he it will be released in October? Why not in November along with the starterset? WD usually gives information on the releases in the upcoming month, not a few months in advance. Wherever he heard this, it's quite unreliable as far as I see. Not to mentioned rumours has it Dark Angels will see it's release in October.


    "The White Dwarf features Daemons. Lots of them but no Chaos Marines. The month after is the 40k starter box so that means no codex until October."

    Why Daemons? I can relate if GW is releasing a Daemonflyer + update via WD due to 6ED. So far it looks more like rumours are showing they get a overhaul in rules + (additional) units.

    via Rixitotal on reddit:

    "Also new units slannesh massive chariot (2D6 +1 impact hits) and other weird chariot thing in 1 kit. the other thing looks and acts kind of like a mobile meat lawnmower. this is in both games and acts like a chariot in 40K."

    Why would GW even bother going through all that trouble if they can simply release a "new" Daemon Codex


    "also soul grinders are coming to fantasy! has T7 6 wounds and a load of upgrades for its shooting. looks pretty mental. the model (40K kit) in the white dwarf and leaflet was on the same base as the giant goblin spider."

    I find this part very unlikely. So they intend to use a Future-look-model in a fantasy setting? Why not sculpt a entirely new model like they did with the past few Fantasy armies. This is not like the way GW is doing things the past year. Also where would you get a base? As far as I know the Soulgrinder doesn't have a fantasybase in it's box. Either we need to buy it or GW need to resupply/repack the box.


    also new models for plague bearers (really really nice, some have fly heads) screamers (look similar but with lots of eyes), flamers (similar) and nurgalings (looks like a pile of funny little germ monsters you might get in a dish washer advert).

  23. A few things:

    1. Soulgrinders being available in WFB? Why not sculpt a entirely new model like they did with the past few armies.

    2. What about the base for Soulgrinders when used in WFB? Do we need to purchase such base or does GW suplly/repacking the box?

    3. Why new Daemon units and rules via WD? Could they just make a new Codex/Armybook?

    This sounds unreliable to me

  27. 2 things dont add up.

    1.Soulgrinder is of clear 40k Design, would not fit in with WFB and doesnt fit on a stand (hence the reason it doesnt have one) putting it into WFB is stupid and a poor effort if true.

    2.Cultists are supposed to be in the new starter set, to use them requires the new codex, new codex comes out after starter set your left with a load of cultists that can only be used in store tester games.

    i call shenanigans...but if its true then GW have really done a poor job of the release schedule...or a good job of ballsing it up!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. How so? The guns? Replace 1 arm. Could be easy to do. The base: I have no idea. You are probably right. New base added to box with new arm? Not so hard. The rest of the daemon kits have done all this for years - it's always been the daemons standard.

      2. Required Codex to use new cultists? Why not just supply sweet new models everyone will buy with: A: knowing new rules are coming. Or B: the needed rules are added in the box (see leaked pictures). And / or C: White dwarf support like we've already seen a lot.

      I'd also like to point out the autogun profile is the same as the lasgun profile. Make a new chaos imp model and use an existing imp Codex seems almost intentional.

      I also hope for shenanigans. I really do. But the challenges to release a Codex later and models now is far from insurmountable. I will be very disappointed if it's true. GW will still get my dirty slut money.

  29. Well I still think that Sept will be the CSM codex, and October will be the new box set because the UK Games Day is in September and you know they love to make a massive deal over showing off the new boxed game first at Games Day.

    That is just me, I have nothing personally to back it up.

  30. I guess the fliers are a 'no go' since there has been no mention of them which is a shame. I've still got my fingers crossed though I would really love a new tau model.

    ReplyDelete
  31. first off, do not forget all the original rumors had said ONE (1) Codex release this year, for months now, and thats it.

    DA was, in my mind, always slated for next year from when I heard the rumors originally. So getting the CSM in August, then the Starter, then nothing till Jan/Feb for DA, omg the whines that would bring!!!

    So maybe they decided to push it up to bring everything just a little closer and not hear the whines, OR something happened, that they went into hell mode to change the schedule so as to not have a bad start with another 6th Edition release.

    It is GW, they won't say now, on Aug 4th or ever! So lets not start throwing hate and angry words around about GW, the rumor mongers, and your fellow posters.

    ALSO reddit if I remember when he was doing the Q&A for 6th edition, he had the BOOK or a friend of his did, and he was from a Asian country. So the release of the Starter Set images of the pages in Chinese possibly came from that same source.

  32. I'm scratching my head on this one. Something must have gone wrong if they're delaying Chaos like this. It just doesn't make any sense.
    I'm also still calling BS on the Soulgrinder in Fantasy. It's just so not-fantasy. The giant robotic claw hand, the clearly modern styling of the lower hull. It doesn't look steam punk or anacro-tech like a steam tanks and such. It really doesn't fit.
