White Dwarf is being transformed, and its release is only a few days away. I was able to ask a few questions   and here are the answers. The primary question...... Yes, the Chaos Space Marine codex has some photos of it in the White Dwarf. Here is the latest........


Another huge thanks to our anonymous source.
A few points that will hopefully address some of your questions:
WD:
- New format is very nice - matte cover, with semi-gloss embossed type (logo etc)
- New format feels more like a proper magazine, less like a catalogue.
- Still a number of adverts, but they don't feel as intrusive
- New style of photography is beautiful - some amazing new images included, matching the style of the 40k 6th rulebook
- More painting tutorials - though these are quite simple; more geared towards your entry level painter (which for me, being a painter first is a dissappointment)
- I haven't had a chance to properly read the editorial, nor a lot of the content, but gut feeling is the new direction is good.

Chaos Space Marines
- its coming along with the new models - within the next 2 weeks.
- Hard Cover
- Phil Kelly is the author
- Some photos of the 'dex are in the WD, though they're quite small and hard to make out text.
- Lots of background included
- Some beautiful artwork
- Several rules mentioned, including 'Veteran of the Eternal War' (not sure of the specifics as I don't have the WD handy) but from memory it gives a unit fearless (definately not 100% sure on this - might be +1LD) and Prefered Enemy (Space Marines). Cannot say if this rule is an upgrade or universal rule.
- There is a Chaos Boon table, which I believe has been discussed before. When an IC defeats an enemy IC in challenge, they can choose to roll on the table. Looks to be 2D6 (maybe even 3D6) and that IC recieves a boon for the rest of the game. Image of this table is too small to make out what each result is.
- New Maulers (CC varient oblits)

  2. Wonderful. This should silence the nay-sayers about the CSM Codex not being there. Exciting to get preferred enemy: Space Marines. I hope it applies to all of them...

    1. Any hints on remodeling of any older models? Does it cover just the stuff being released on the 6th of October, or does it also include the 20th wave?

      Delete
    2. There are going to be 20 waves!? Yikes!

    3. If chaos marines get prefered enemy space marines, it would be realistic and balanced they also cause prefered enemy chaos space marines to imperial marines. It would make for some bloody melee on both sides.

  3. I dont think it will apply to evetyone, but i hope it is an upgrade purchasable for everyone. There were previous rumors about csm ld dropping and making them all fearless wouldnt make sense

    1. It Kindo does, they are fearless but don't play well with others.

      Delete
    2. I assume it's an upgrade for non-marked non-vehicle units. If the Cults stand as they are in the current codex +1 Ld and Fearless wouldn't make a difference at all.

      If it isn't available to all units, then it's probably Chosen and Terminators only.

  9. I'm excited but I'm still not sold on the, yet... I want to see more units dedicated to the gods and not just undivided stuff. Though allying with guard for tanks and rolling iron warriors could be fun.

  11. This saturday is going to be interesting in many ways.

    The new White Dwarf is sounding promising.

    I still want to see the new chaos models in person.

    Natfka keep up the good work, I love checking out this site on a regular basis. Maybe a bit to regular while I'm at work.

  14. Thank you Natfka...

  15. Are there any images of the Mauler Obliterators? Or any information about the box (e.g. will they be in a combined boxed set)?

    Thank you Natfka and your anonymous source :)

  20. So this article basically said:

    "I saw the new White Dwarf, but I don't remember anything. There were pictures, but I couldn't see them. I read some of it, just not any rules, fluff, or content. Chaos is on the way, like we already knew. Now I'll list absolutely nothing relevant about a bunch of models we already suspected were on the way..."

    1. No. Maybe try reading the blog (not 'article'!) before you imagine what it says?

  21. Thank you Natfka and the anonymous sources for providing the additional information. It's a relief the Codex has been shown in the WD. Though there are still a few things which is left unknown.

    Are these they only models being released? (aside the CC oblits/Mutilators) This includes:

    - Cultists / Apostles
    - Regular CSM squad/ Havocs
    - Chosen
    - Terminators perhaps?
    (mostly all units which forms the backbone of a CSM force)

    Does the WD state the whole Chaos mini-range will be released in October, or will this be split into several waves in the upcoming months?

    There are certainly more questions, but from my pov these are probably the most relevant ones

    ReplyDelete
  22. Alright, the chaos people can shut up now. We've had enough Chaos for this year.

    1. Sorry, there are still Daemons in need of an upgrade. (Or atleast plastic kits for greater daemons and fiends)

      Delete
    2. No need to show off just because the Dark angels did not get an update first. it makes a change for the wonder marines not to be in the spot light first seeing as they are all so mighty

      Delete
    3. Yes, they are totally wonderous, considering the current DA and vanilla SM codices are at the bottom of the heap in terms of competitiveness. Chaos needed an update, and they got it, but they didn't need it as badly as DA did.

  23. Hi, may i ask if the maulers mentioned here are different from the maulerfiend described earlier, or are they the same. Thanks! Just to clear up some confusion.

    1. They are cc oblits

    2. I think the CC Oblits are actually called Mutilators.

    1. BramGaunt on Warseer has mentioned that the codex cover is the same used on the Black Library book, "Blood Gorgons".

  25. I can't wait to see the new white dwarf. But I really don't understand what people are talking about. I like the olde stlye wd. The one thing I wish they fixxed was the battle reports. Sound more story like then what they were doing. And I like the way the did the painting tutorials. But everything has to change. So we will see. And as for the ads? Never found them inttrucive...
    I just hope the new version is better then the olde one.

    1. You never bought a REAL White Dwarf did you?

      Delete
    2. Yes, I did.. but then again. I have just started following it. Never really seemed that bad to me.I mean some issues were better then others. And I only bought the ones I was intersted in. But the were good to read when my uslers actted up late at night.... so I have to wait and see what the new mag brings.

      And working in the mag field for a while. I seen mags that were a hell of a l8t worse then white dwarf.

      Delete
    3. My collection misses a portion between 2007-2012, but since coming back, you should see the quality 2007 and before! The paint tutorials were more than just pictures with paints next to them.

      Delete
    4. The current white dwarf really dont' have anything in them you couldn't see on their website, or on the net. Its an out dated model designed before there was an internet, $9 for almost nothing but adds. Yes that mag needs a huge overhaul in order to survive. Compare it to Privateer Press's No Quarter mag and WD is crap.

  26. And finally it's confirmed! All hail Phil Kelly! Sixes be upon him!

  28. Is it just me or does it seem like the releases will only have models that don't exist, with the rest to come whenever? There were more new minis for the daemon release than the pics from this WD show. It leaves me with the nagging doubt that GW have changed their release system to doing only the models that aren't in the range at all, then everyone can "make do" for however long it takes for new ones to surface. If this is the case (I hope not) then my chaos buying will wait until the current hybrid kits are redone. :-(

  29. lol wut? new sorcerer and new raptors.

  30. Oh balls,
    If Kelly did the CSM codex does that mean DA are getting Ward?

    1. No, DA are getting the Crud. Our lord the Ward is writing chaos daemons.
