    1. Supposedly the 40k pages are almost exactly the same, even the abilities, random rolls, gifts, etc. Granted, they'd have to be translated into 40k useable stuff but hopefully you get what I'm tryin to say.

    2. The 40k rules just have a picture of a very sad nerd and the words "you lose" on every page

    3. No
      It says BALANCED :D

    4. You'll need to take Necrons, IG, GK and SW's off the scales then if you want 6th to balance. Now GW are taking the nerf bat to each codex they are releasing, it would be better to change the release schedule so that the old power codices are brought in line. I play CSM, CD, Tau and Eldar and having played the new CSM and senn these rumours for CD I'd rather the power codices were sorted before Tau and Eldar were released.

    2. AND all enemy units (all enemy units and friendly models of the oposed god roll a d6, if a 6 is rolled, that unit receives the wrath of that god)

    2. Battle standard bearer for the first one, not quite sure about the second.

    3. in fantasy a horde is usually a unit that is 10 wide and 4 ranks deep

      this unit generates tons of attacks and is usually very hard 2 get rid of

  4. So am I to understand that all Chaos Daemons have the Instability thing, and thus C:CSM ICs still can't join daemon units? Emperor damn it, I wanted a Bloodcrusher escort for my Juggernaut Lord, but guess not even with the new Codex.

    1. I realy don't get why they removed every cross codex connection in C:CSM yet in C:CD you get a warlord trait that lets you deepstrike CSM without shatter. Last minute change so maybe, somewhere, someplace wants to field those bad warptalons?

    2. Yeah, yet an Eldar IC can join a Dark Eldar unit. Chaos only has one Battle Brothers and they can't do the main thing that makes Battle Brothers sweet. Yeah, you can cast spells on each other, but it just seems silly to take away the weird deployment but still gimp the IC thing. Not a nerf since it wasn't possible before, but come on, how come Azrael can give a 50 man guard blob a 4++ but I can't put a lord on a palanquin into a massive nurgling swarm. Zup wit dat?

    3. I agree. Again, I find that C:CSM wasn't so much a bad codex (its not) but more so the direction of the army still seems very pigeon-holed to some degree for my tastes. Chaos, should be a sorta catch all phrase in the 40k universe (at least it seems that way in the BL publications for the most part), a sort of overall mindset and ethical take on the basic lifestyle you lead and who you pay homage to in the 41st millenium. The CSM are just another story in that over all tale I think and shouldn't be separated so much from the main thoroughfare. C:CSM and C:CD SHOULD be a marriage made in heaven by flipping default and GW should have tooled both books that way.

      I get GW wanting to make a buck by separating the theme of Chaos into nice army chunks for the consumer, but I think we all would have hoped that Chaos (not just the marines and the daemons but the overall concept of the Chaos threat) would return to prominence in a whole new and truly fearful way. Looks like that might not be happening like we'd hoped.

    4. The legions are broken and the renegades have no logistical support. I think the Chaos codex accurately reflects this.

    1. Khorne Hates Slaanesh outright, not so much hate with Tzeentch, he just thinks magic is for little girls basically.

      Delete
    2. Nurgle is about decay and entropy while tzeentch is about change and hopeand progress,, slaanesh is about experiences and excess while Khorne tries to end all off it.

  6. Got to say, that Reign of Chaos chart looks pretty awesome! Can't wait to play it

  7. So why is #11 on the fantasy chart "enemy wizard takes a leadership check or is replaced by a herald" when in 40k it's 3d6? Why would you have that difference?

    1. Because in 40K a psyker might be 100-200 points tops and is not necessarily essential. In Fantasy a Wizard can run upwards of 300-500 points and has an entire phase of the game dedicated to them. I assume they wanted the 11 result to not be an automatic character snipe which could heavily swing the game.
