Chaos Daemons should only be a few short weeks away from leaking information out on their release. With that in mind, here some rumored information regarding what will be coming, as far as waves of models goes.


Please remember that these are rumors.

Overview and Schedule
The Chaos Daemons release slot as last time around is a dual system release, updating the repsective armies for both Warhammer 40,000, and Warhammer Fantasy.  There are a large number of models to be released as well as both books, so look for it to get broken up into 2 waves at least - with the lower possibility of 3 waves.

Look for the initial wave next month, and follow up waves a quarter later.   That would put the first wave in March and the followup in June.  Note however that Games Workshop has this thing for releasing Daemons in August - so that second wave might slide a little.

In any case, onto the waves themselves:

Wave 1
BloodThirster/Skarbrand (plastic)
Great Unclean One (plastic)
Chariot of Khorne/Herald of Khorne/Khorne Cannonade (anyone remember the old epic Doom Blaster)
Plague Flies of Nurgle
Palanquin of Nurgle/KuGath upgrade/Herald of Nurgle
Fiend of Slaanesh

There is also word of a named Daemon Prince and several smaller finecast models as well.

  1. Remembering that these are just rumours...

    ...I CAN'T WAIT!

    I only hope they're as cool as they sound. Though not a Nurgle fan, I am curious about those Plaguebearers riding big flies.

  3. Named Daemon Prince is the most exciting rumor from here in my opinion. I've been saying for quite some time we need one.

    1. I hope it's M'Kar the Reborn. He's mentioned enough times.

    2. M'Kar has been killed by the Ultramarines for good, the possibility is there though (that didn't stop Tycho from making a honourary entry in the BA codex). I'm hoping for Doombreed.

    3. Daemon Prince Angon would get rules before Doombreed, he's LESS powerful!

    4. Eldrad Ulthran has been dead for a long time and he's still kicking around on the tables...

    5. OMG I choked on my Mountain Dew when I read that about Ulthran hahaha.

      Seriously though, very excited. What do you think will happen with Epidemius????

      Delete
    6. That's what I want to know, too: what are they going to do with Epidemius? He's the linchpin in my new Death Guard army, and I'd hate to see him get -too- neared (although, I am expecting some nerfage to come his way...).

    8. Daemon Prince Angron?! 500 points + the price of a Blodothirster, well he does have WS10...

  4. I can't wait for this release (I am not a Chaos player) because I am getting very so sick of Chaos. first it was Chaos Space Marines then Warriors of Chaos, now a duel Chaos Deamons release...Enough already how about Tau, Eldar, Tyrands, Black Templar, Sisters; some actual armies that NEED an update (I know Deamons "needed" an update, but not as bad as the aforementioned armies). I guess on the bright side getting all the Chaos crap out of the way means they won't need an update till the end of Warhammer 40K 7th edition (at the earliest!).

    1. Now you know how the rest of us feel about all the 3+ codexes that were released en masse.

      Delete
    2. You ask what about Tau, Eldar, Nids, and some others?

      I reply with, "What about them?" :P

    3. As a nid player I kind of resent that. A new dex would be nice but I'm doing okay with the current one (don't hate the playa, hate the dex), I can wait for GW to get there act together and do a really decent codex.

      In fact I think the nid dex isn't as bad as people make out. The only real bad units are Lictors and perhaps Mawlocs. I've got a place for everything else in the dex and I use different units all the time. You just have to make sure they fulfil a role and with some units (genestealers) redefine the roles from 5th ed.

    4. Chaos got the push because they're part of the 40k DV box. It makes perfect sense for GW to focus on them as people will pick up Chaos Marines via DV, Daemons gives them allies to field and also fills the coffers with Fantasy players' money which also gives GW the scope to get Warriors Of Chaos overhauled too. Makes perfect sense.

      Tau and Eldar at least are well into completion and testing so I doubt that Daemons made much of a difference to their release anyway. The bulk of the new 6th edition codices are already done, GW are just ironing out the final details. As none of us are privvy to how GW plan their releases we can't say that Daemons being released now had any impact on Xenos releases; they may still be waiting on Tau/Eldar artwork or models and Daemons got pushed forward. Who knows? Chill out, our stuff will come.

  5. I could see that happening. It does seem like the new codexs are bringing in characters with 'history' with each other. Exhibit A: Inquisitor Valeria and her pen-pal Trazyn. Exhibit B: Imotehk and the Black Templar dude. Exhibit C: Lukas the Trickster and the Dark Eldar who cut out one of his hearts (Baron man?).
    A character with as many ties as M'Kar would be a prime candidate to bring to the tabletop, as are the Eldar characters in the Necron codex with suspiciously detailed stories who just happen to be alive...

  7. Btw "all the chaos crap" just happens to be the main antagonists in the setting :P It's good they're getting attention so close in time. Like they're a single side - Chaos.

  8. What happened to GW doing a release all at once? One wave not multiples?

    ReplyDelete
  9. A-all of that in one wave? Dear god, what would be left in the second? Words fail to describe my anticipation. Compared to other recent releases, that seems way too much (as DA got 3 new plastics, CSM got 3 new plastics and WoC got 3 new plastics.) However, each of those armies are not nearly as bad, since most of the daemon units are medium sized squads who's figures are sold one per $30 fine cast pack.Not to mention Daemons have recently (on a GW scale) discovered what plastic troops are. I remember when the army book first came out and the Fantasy line only had two plastic kits to it's name.

  10. To be honest, while I hope the contents of these rumors are correct, I seriously hope the distribution method is not.

    Giving Khorne and Nurgle basically everything while making Tzeentch and Slaanesh wait at least two months, if not longer, is nothing short of aggravating.
