The Chaos Space Marine codex seems to be the very heart of discussions, even amidst a very nice Chaos Daemon wave. So lets take a look at a small Question and Answer session by TastyTaste on just that subject.


Please remember that these are rumors, and TastyTaste is answering with the best knowledge he can. He just gave us a major rumor drop with tons of information. Knowing every specific bit at this point would seem difficult at best. In other words, he is answering what he can.

So does Soul Blaze replace the AP3 on 1k sons bolters, or is it in addition to it? And since rapid fire weapons can be fired on the move now, do they still have SnP?
[Are just like before, but with Soulfire]
They are just like
1) do Chaos bikes get a reasonable price reduction, similar to C:SM ones?
[No Idea]
2) do Havoc weapons options get cheaper?
[Yes almost as cheap as Long Fangs]
3) do Terminators come standard with Power Axes in their new cost?
[I think you still get to pick Sword or Axe your choice]
4) are there any FOC shenanigans like moving Terminators, Bikes or Raptors to troops?
[Nope just cult troops]
Do the Thousand Sons get any new options (say, like Heavy Bolters?)?
[None that I know of]
Even with all those upgrades and tables, the codex somehow sounds ”down to earth” like the current DA codex. Does it feel the same? Like a careful approach to a new edition of rules?
[Seems careful, I would say they are just copying there approach they used with Fantasy]
- How do Icons and Marks work? Are Icons still bound to one model and lost whet it dies?
[No idea]
- Can Vehicles and special units (Obliteratiors, Dragon, etc.) be marked?
[Some can some cannot]
- Which weapons of Plaguemarines are poisoned? CC weapons, Shooty weapons or both?
[No idea]
- Do marked Sorcerers or marked Daemonprinces also make cult units a troop choice?
[Princes no, Sorcerers Yes]

    1. Hey cheaper Havoc weapons and Scorcereres being able to move cult troops is some pretty sweet info if you ask me. =)

    1. Oh i see. Just like before but with soulfire. Some salvo weapons would been nice for them to taker advantage of that slow and purposeful. But soulfire (do they mean soul blaze?) Sounds cool.

  7. I'm glad for every bit of rumor, but if it seems he just has seen the models and the "random gift" table, I don't think he can judge how the codex will approach the new edition.

    That said:
    If Havocs get cheaper the HS slot becomes very crowded. Defilers got better, 2 variants of Oblits, Havocs, Vindicator, possible daemon engine,Pred.

  9. Soul Blaze blows.

    HOWEVER, I am pleased that they clarified that Sorcerers with MoTz actually make Tsons Troops. I'd be ticked if you had to take a Lord.

    I am still excited.

    1. I concur! I don't want a nurgle lord. I've got a demon Prince and a scorcerer. Dont' need no stinking Lord.

  10. Wow! slow down on the Haterade Gents. Tasty is almost always spot on with his info.
    He did answer the first question,ksons Bolters retain AP 3 and gain Soul Blaze. So they nuke Marines.

  11. Possibly I should of edited out the questions there were no answers to, however, my natural gut instinct is to provide the information as it was laid out.

    He is answering with as much correct information as he has and can.

  12. When it comes down to it, as long I feel like my ability to kill, maim, burn, is better than the previous edition, I'll be happy as a pig in Nurgle filth.

  13. Oh this info is very much appreciated. My semi-frustration is not with his info or lack PO f some answers. I guess hearing csm being pushed back when i anticipated it so much for August kind pdf ruffles my feathers (does anyone say that anymore?). Maybe some of that frustration gets misdirected by myself and some others who eagerly await a chaos codex with actual options.

    The people providing the rumors are really great. Cant wait to see what tzeentch stufg turns out like.

  14. LOL Thousand Sons are about to poop on Orks! My main problem with orks is shooting at 30 boyz in cover with bolters.

    Go to sleep, punks!

    Thanks for the info.

  16. I'm dying to know about how the sorcerer upgrade works for thousand sons.

    Is it still a very expensive chanpion upgrade? Any perils protection?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wait, princes don't make cults into troops??? WTF? Are you all sure?

    So, I now have to take a cheap lord or psycher to use my noise marine force, and then buy Prince?????

    That can not be true. That would make a lot of previous armies illegal, making us have to buy a useless lord...
