A Helbrute release is apparently coming soon, however do not expect it until after the new year. From what we were told in the past it has a less dynamic pose, but will come with all the options. The rest is that there are more models on their way, including Thousand Sons.


Please remember that these are rumors.

Got a few bits for the csm fans.

Helbrute is the only DV model getting a release soon. But don't expect it in 2012. All codex options are there, and the model looks fantastic, it should not be too...long of wait though.

One of the staffers has csm plague zombies on his/her desk. All conversions. Hard to tell from the new photography, these are really great conversions, so when they show up, no one get excited.

Thousand Sons will get the first plastic kit when they come out. But that doesn't mean others won't be out at the same time. I know that's cryptic, and it's on purpose.

There was a csm plastic revamp that was underway. I cannot get a response on if it is still coming or not, normally if something is scrapped people are straight forward. This much obfuscation tells me something is happening.

There is a bit of chaos scenery coming. It should please world eaters.

  1. Hm. The no new cultists would be disapointing but not aurprising as they have all the options already.

    The Helbrute is a must though with those options.

    But im still hoping for a cult box soon!

    3. Dont be happy to Soon.
      Like the rumor says, These are beeing sculpted On meaningless if They ditch them later.
      Years back we again & again had Rumors for the deff-Koptaz wich are still not released.
      We also had credibale rumorsources claiming sob & BTs have been Seen on Desks 2 years ago. All finished ready to go.

    4. I really wish we'd get a cultist release. There's so many clear copies of each model in the set, that even with two sets it's so obvious; and really detracts from the quality. Plus I don't like being forced to give my shooty cultists a shotgun on the champion. Don't see the point in sacrificing 12 inches of range with no benefit.

    5. I just want a plastic Noose Marines box!

      Delete
    6. I want plastic noise marines too. An an Emperor's Children conversion kit from Forge World, but that's a different matter. On the Cultist side of things, I can't see only one of the two troops choices in the codex having a box set; Cultists must be on the way.

    2. So that means After 7th!
      Caus like Aobr this Box will be populer Long On eBay

  4. I've long suspected cultists will be box set only, however given the nature of cultists I imagine people will creativly convert guard and many other units to cultists.

    1. Exactly. Orks still need plastic deffkoptas, High elves still need plastic swordmasters. Still available, just not in multi-part plastic :/. If I had to convert cultists, I'd use Guard, marine scouts (shotguns) and chaos marauders (for chaos gubbins). One box of each kitbashed would be 31 guys, so not too bad I guess.

    2. Or they will buy Cultists as bits. I calculated that magnetizing Cultists to be able to tabe Autopistol + CCW or Autogun would cost more then actually buying double amount of models. Many bits stores sell Cultists for not to bad prices.
      The only downside is that if you buy 2 sets of DV Cultists, you have 2 champs, 2 spec guys and 16 normal guys, so either one champ "counts as" a normal guy or you cannot take 2 spec. guys since you only have 19 WYSIWYG models... :S (Thats's of course per kind of Cultists - both CCW and shooting.)
      Cultist box should come with 9 normal, 1 spec and 2 champ figures to have all the options AND be able to create legal hordes with only one champ.

      However, a full option Helbrute would be nice as well as plastic Cult troops. And of course all-option Chosen and all-option new platic Lord as well... :)

    3. You could just get the cultists, off eBay. It like 10 dollars for 10.

      Delete
    4. WYSIWYG? You opponents actually do that? You must not have any minors in you gaming establishment. I thought I was the only on concerned with equipping models as shown.

  5. And necromunda models fit right in with the cultist's look

  6. GW is missing a great sales opportunity not selling cultists separately. I know many people, myself included, who are eager to run a max cultist list. Its not economically viable to buy DV boxes to get 210 cultists. Having to resort to IG boxes is a major snub for csm players. Most of us want them to look like cultists, NOT traitor guard! For that we can go to forge world instead, or in many cases third party companies.

    1. agreed. it's also a biig oppertunity to have third party manafacturers get involved. the gear on cultists is pretty plain jane vanilla, and the nature of cultists is pretty chaotic, I bet there are a lot of good stand ins for chaos cultists that will swiftly become well known

    2. Just hit up Ebay, tons of broken up sets out there.

    3. With all the tools out there for wrecking big mobs of 6+ save models (just ask any Ork player) the whole cultist spam list thing will probably go out of style soon. I really doubt a cultist box is a big sales opportunity once people figure out how bad they are.

      I also can't understand why anyone would waste time converting plague zombies when a box of VC zombies gets the job done quickly. Seriously, don't waste time with cultists. If this were 3rd edition with screening LoS maybe. In 6th there's just too many spells and guns out there who will wreck your face.

      The lists I'll be trying the next 2 weekends will have Ahriman in a block of 25-30 cultists with infiltrating Chosen and plasma marine squads. Wasting points on T3 6+ save chaff just seems counterproductive given the other better choices in the codex.

    4. Sure kultists are ig Without the shooting. Bad Troops Choice, pur tie up/ Meat shield Unit.

      But infiltrat is Bad too now friend. Even with shoots Guys. :D

      Delete
    5. Infiltrate is bad? My Thousand Sons army dares to disagree.

      Delete
    6. Cultists suck in the small number we have available. But if you run maxed out, 210 models for 900 points, or all with auto guns for 1110 points, that leaves you plenty of points for heavy support and a couple dark apostles. Unless your opponent is running an all template army, he won't have enough bullets to stop you. If typhus gets faqed to allow more than 10 man zombie squads, it will be even more deadly.

      Delete
    7. That's the thing. You have so many more cultists than an ork player would have orks. The whole Typhus thing is stupid IMO. There'd be no logical reason to limit him to 10 man zombie squads. The group I play in are ignoring the apparent 10 man limit for now.

      Delete
    8. Where does it say that Typhus only gets 10 man zombie squads? I can't find it.

  7. On the topic of cultists - can anyone tell me how well catachan arms will fit on marauder bodies? How about Orks?

    1. Catchan Arms fit well on marauders. I've got a 2,500 guard based on that principle.

  8. As long as the Thousand Sons will finally get a plastic box or upgrade set sometime soon, I'm happy...

    1. If that tiny Thousand Sons head/body in the Space Wolves TWC stuff is anything to go by, they will be sick.

      Alternatively, if the artwork for the Rubric Marine in the CSM codex is anything to go by.... they will still be sick.

  9. Noise Marines? I need me some rock stars.

    1. Damn right. New noise marines would be awesome, they haven't looked great in years.

  10. There will not be a cultists box at all, because all options are covered in the DV box :(

    1. You know what I, and I guess other people too, don't like? Having the same models repeated over and over in the same army. And on the case of CSM, models that don't fit the theme of my army.

      And you know what I don't like either? Paying a lot of money for a gigantic box filled with tons of stuff I'm not really interested in. I mean, I'm a sucker for extra pieces, but it's not like the pieces in DV are really useful.

      So yeah, I'm expecting a cultists box, or at least an official message saying that there'll be no cultists box so I can go ahead and convert some stuff.

      Delete
    2. GW Won't ever release such a message I guess. And you can alway check EBay or any bitz store for Cultists. That's how I bought my 100 Cultists as well from for DV sets. Half shooty, half CC, magnetizing all would cost much more than having twice the amount.

      Delete
    3. But even that way they'll still look all the same. There's 9 different models I think, and they're two pieces each, not really customizable.

      Delete
    4. true but any offical release is gonna be like that, I'm expecting some creativity from people on the new

      Delete
  11. On gw website for prerelease they had finecast upgrade packs for cult units so don't expect plastic ones either at all or until the next csm release.

    1. from what I understand it GW has admitted that to be a stop gap temporary measure
