Not only are we getting pictures of the starter set now, but here is a first hand account of the models, including a good description of the Hell Brute.

Just incase you came late to the show, here is the link for leaked starter set pics

The hell brute is amazing and not in fact a dreadnought! It looks like a bloated dread from the front with a nasty mini defiler gauntlet ending in a wicked hand / claw. It appears to have some kind of cannon for the right hand. Not actually sure if it's a multi melta yet. Any rumors the hell brute is a dreadnought are immediately put to bed by looking at its back. The back is all daemon flesh. the face of the brute is a giant cluster of horns with a gaping toothy maw in the middle opening to reveal a screaming skull warped in agony.

The chaos lord/ sorcerer in power armor has a wicked set of horns and a plasma pistol and daemon sword as big as he is. It's seriously nemesis force sword big.

The 6 chosen have bolters and lightning claw dude and power weapon guy as previously mentioned by other sources. They look right out of the designs for the space marine video game. Not a lot of spikes but a ton of detail on the armor.

The set comprises of:
Chaos (no god specific iconography thus far on models but it does reek of khorne)
-chaos lord
-6 chosen
-18 cultists
- hell brute

Dark angels
-company master
-chaplain
-librarian
-10 man full plasma option tac squad
-5 man terminator squad
-3 bikers

I also got to see the terminators. The captain has wings coming out of the top of his armor.

The assault cannon guy is a character. He looks cool with his assault cannon raised.

    2. poor JayDee is probably pulling triple over time in the ER/OR to make sure he can pay for a few of the boxsets and Codex and limited edition!

    3. Yeah.. I don't think he's an ER doc. Seems like more of a clinic kind of guy.

    1. no this sounds like blood for the blood claws, they will soon feast on chaos in some hunter ritual in a store near you

  6. Now all we need are the subsequent WD leaks to drool over, and to confirm whether or not we can expect Chaos Marines in the next month.

  7. pictures? Pretty please?

  8. That sounds like a good deal for a 100 to a 130 bucks. Plus the paper back rule book. I might get 2 of them.

  12. P397 RBR for what the Hellbrute is expected to look like.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You anons keep saying that, referring to the same exact drawn picture of that Dreadnought in the rulebook every time he's mentioned.

      Newsflash. That picture in the rulebook is of a Dreadnought, not the Hellbrute. The Hellbrute is not a Dreadnought. Hellbrute =/= Dreadnought.

    1. well rememebr chaplains are apparenbtly being reclassed as elites. which for my marines will be nice, as it'll allow me to feild a captian, librarian and chaplain

      Delete
  14. The way they're designed you use 2/3 of the HQs for the Dark Angels, not all 3.

    The Chaplain is limited edition for the first run of the starter.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Any word Natfka if there is a limited edition with a Chaplain available only to it?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Guess XVRouge gave me the answer huh? First run only and not a separate limited edition? oh well for the late comers I guess

  16. LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A SORCEROR AND A CHAOS LORD LOOK AT THE PICS IN THE OTHER ARTICLE AND WHAT HE MENTIONS

  17. Can't wait for the new WD.... I NEED to see what that brute looks like...when that leak coming, I can't wait!!!!!

  18. @ tyrlashan

    I am trying to find out for natfa and all yall if there is a premium format starter box or not. as of right now I'm inclined to say no.

    @ Josh Hall

    The terminator captain has wings coming out of the top of his terminator armor not his head. they are very reminiscent of the wings on the DA company master model. he has a robe and tabard with ropes and typical chapter trappings. he also has a targeter eye piece and scope on his storm bolter. He is wielding the Dark angels pattern power sword.

    The absolute BA Assault cannon terminator is standing there with his assault cannon raised. he has his head cocked slightly and in looking at his foes staring them down. he has a clenched power fist and chapter trappings slung across his chest. he has a kind of strap tabard like in the sm captain boxset. he will kill everything your opponent loves.

    The other mook terminators have studded fists and purity seals. they at least have space hulk levels of detail quality.

    Thx for the post natfka i'll even try to get brute rules for all of you IF I can.

    additionally on the hell brute.. he has exhaust stacks growing out of his back and armor plates in front sort of like a dread. he also has these rad tonguetacles bursting out of a mouth on his lower left torso. he has detailed armor plates on his legs and clawed toes underneath. I really wonder what the fluff is for these? were they possessed daemon engines? daemon prince dreadnoughts? horrible mutations clad in dark mechanicus armor? I love it all.

    Hopefully I'll have more details soon.

    1. Additionally I also am just thinking of using chosen #6 (holding helmet) as a lord or sorcerer and will use the lord as a lord/ sorcerer. I am really hoping chosen have a 2+ daemonic artificer armor save. I will report back anything I get on the rules ASAP.

      Delete
    2. Thanks knowledgeable anon! Can't wait to get more info, this is the Chaos rush I've been waiting a long time for.

      I'll probably end up using the Chosen as different squad leaders or HQ's with different weapon loadouts. They look detailed enough to stand out in any army, and definitely look far different from any of the current Chaos models!

      Delete
    3. You're welcome DrBored.

      I am also thinking of using the chosen as captains since I'm buying atleast 2 of these starters. you will need to chop up 2-3 of the chosen's arms though since they are just holding bolters and you will probably want to add pistols, ccws.

      I used to play chaos in 3rd and I'm all set to reduce the imperium to ashes after the stuff I've seen :)

    4. Those sorts of conversions are easily done, and I wouldn't want to do them till the Codex comes out anyway. Woudln't want to ruin a good model by putting on a different hand only to find out that the weapon you put on can't be taken or isn't a great option!

      Delete
  19. Look at the COVER of the RBR. He's there. In the background. Matches the description perfectly.

    ALSO notice the extra daemon engine in the same area. I bet that's the soon-to-come "Seige engine with melta template". Observe the six legs, no torso and gaping maw with flame coming out.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It could be a variant. But the brute I have pics of only has 2 legs. :|

      Delete
    2. Actually yeah. It's the thing next to the defiler, above the chaos marine dudes, but below the massive Khorne demon head. That looks like it could match the description of the Hell Brute. The other Daemon Engine beside it is a Defiler though.

      Delete
    3. We have a Bingo DrBored!

      Thank you for highlighting the image. That is in fact him! BUT the actual model is of a much higher level of detail then that illustration :)

      Delete
    4. OP here. I'm talking about TWO figures. The Hell Brute AND the NEW siege engine. The Hell Brute is, obviously, the one that looks like a dread. The siege engine could be the OTHER figure to the left. It's different than a defiler.

      There is also a standard defiler just to the right of the Hell Brute.

      Delete
    5. Oh and I'm bugging out for now.

      I'll send Natfka more info as I get it. I'll come back tonight and read all the replies and try to answer further questions where I can. As a hobbyist I'm happy to help put to rest any rumors I can.

      ttfn

      Delete
    6. Oooh, I see it now. It's kind of hard to make out because of all the fire effects, but if you look to the left of the Hellbrute and right underneath the Khorne Demon's neck, you'll see this maw shooting out a bolt of energy. Then it's easier to see the arched legs, the shell-like carapace, and other spikes.. Not much else though, but that looks like a worthy Chaos Siege Engine!

      Delete
  20. Well looking at it DA have about 600 ish points and form what I know for a fact that o cam count for chaos is about 300ish so there is about 300 ish points between hell brute and cuiltst. just .very very rough estament

  21. I think Dakkadakka beat us to the punch. Scroll about halfway down for the full Cultist picture.

  24. Still hoping to see a smaller than landraider; slightly more expensive than a rhino; assault vehicle introduced to 40k. CSM would be a fantastic place to start.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Good God! Those are incredible! Now, that's what Chaos Space Marines look like.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Would GW hold onto the CSM dex and release it or at least announce it at UK Games Day - 23rd Sept - without any preview in WD?
