This is not really a rumor at this point, as I have many sources sending it to me.

  1. 12 khorne bezerkers? Looks like the rumour saying new bezerkers are coming was false. Otherwise I am very excited for this.

    1. no new berserkers, unless the set is trying to shift the last that they have left. but we may see new flesh hounds, as they arent listed in the bundle

      Delete
    2. Also, remember, Deathstorm box had the old terminators in the bundle and not the newest set. It could be a downsize of stock that they currently have. Fingers crossed atleast.

      Delete
    3. although the new terminators were assault terminators, whereas the ones in deathstorm were ranged

      Delete
    4. Also it's almost certainly a online bundle and not all packaged into a specific box. Meaning that they can sell it up to the point new Berzerkers are released (if they are) and then not suffer from having useless stock and or unnecessary packaging.

      Delete
    5. as a side-note, if the price above is correct, the bundle saves you about £36 i believe (i worked it out earlier but cba to work it out again), which is nice.

      Delete
    6. I don't think it is a web bundle. There's normally no savings on web bundles right?

  3. Bout damn time Chaos started getting the multiple codex treatment!

    Shame there's no new models though, still Khorne rules for CSM units is awesome and will undoubtedly be the first of 4 books.

    1. Well a new Bloodthirster was JUST released, that fits right in with that book.

      Delete
    2. No doubt the Bloodthirster is about to get a major upgrade in this codex. Gotta sell those shiny new models!

      Delete
    3. C'mon ability-to-charge-immediately-after-changing-flight-modes rule!

      C'mon!

      Delete
    4. -1. Was glad as heck to see that go away.

      Delete
    5. Got to agree with Right-O. The change flight mode charge restriction is just dumb.
      And I don't even use flying monstrous creatures

      Delete
    6. It's pretty unlikely to happen, but would actual make Bloodthirsters worthwhile and special in some way. Anyway, +1 Right-O.

      Delete
    7. I always felt the flying charge was a bit too good, and heavily abused in my area. And for the record yes I play chaos and yes I use bloodthirsters.

      Delete
    8. this is a tough one. Bloodthirsters got hit harder then any other model with this change. However not being able to shoot something before it charges you is something games workshop hates. .. see deeps trike and infiltrate rules. Not sure if there is a good fix here. personally I think it should be able to charge from flying, but would accept increased survivability alternativly.

      Delete
    9. You'll get nothing, and like it!

      Delete
    10. Now that right O I can agree with you on lol. With the current pattern with my main armies. Chaos and sisters I will probably get nothing. But it's fun to dream.

      Delete
    11. I told ya'll a couple weeks ago Chaos would be getting supplement codex for each of the 4 "factions" i just didn't have a time table, i saw pictures of khornate models last week but with no other opposing models contrasting them i figured it was just endtimes fantasy stuff. ill try to find out if this is the codex release kicking off the next campaign, would be nice as I'm excited to get a couple more LE HQ's

      Delete
    12. Thanks nightfury. Tzeentch vs. Adeptus Mechanicus in the next campaign could still happen then.

      Delete
    13. So basically -not- a codex, just a supplement that will apparently require 2 codexes to use?

      Delete
    14. Also nightfury, any opinion on BoLS recent rumors post on Sisters?

      Delete
    15. It would be nice to see those winged demons come out as a kit called the Furies of Khorne

      Delete
    16. Zion- i think BoLS's sisters. rumour is just a reiteration or a piggyback even of the info i gave on SoB. i have confirmation and mentioned as much over a month ago that the sculpts have been finished for awhile and i wouldnt think it unlikely that preproduction is already well underway

      Delete
    17. @nightfury:
      I was thinking more of their list:

      – 5-model combo-unit Sisters infantry kit
      – 3 model Sisters unit on 50mm bases kit
      – 5 model Sisters unit on 32mm bases kit (different from the infantry unit listed above)
      – Sororitas combo unit vehicle kit “A” kit
      – Sororitas combo unit vehicle kit “B” kit
      – Sororitas Walker/Monstrous Creature vehicle kit
      – 3 clampack Sororitas characters

      I mean, that -is- a decently specific sort of list regarding boxes and model counts.

      Delete
    18. Omg.. nightfury... you are my hero. I so want Tzeentch stuff.

      Delete
    19. I mentioned there's no timetable that I've seen, i wasn't told specifically it would be all 4 cults, i was told that chaos cults would be getting some supplement love this year and i inferred based on logical needs that each cult will get their own supplement. no idea it would be this quick, just goes to show that GW has a whole deck of cards up their sleeve and are sitting on a slew of content they can release whenever the mood strikes

      Delete
    20. @righr-o
      Its impossible to shoot a demon if he can charge right after leaving flight mode.
      L2p dud. If you cant win without fmc Spam you probably suck at the game.

      Delete
    21. Interesting observation, Seb...

      Delete
    22. I remember that there are several weapons with this rule called "skyfire" that can shoot FMC in the air....

      Delete
    23. GJ as always, seb. I don't think there's any way to argue with you.

      Delete
  4. Interesting.
    Was talking to a friend about the lack of flavour for chaos marines, them only being Space Marines with spiky bits.
    Do this for all the cult marines, and we'll get a lot of fluff :)

    So question is will Codex Daemons and Codex Chaos Space Marines be gone?
    Chaos need an undivided book imo... maybe just make that a Codex Space Marines supplement?
    Daemons would just work through allies of the different god codices.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This backs up rumours that the next iteration of Codex Chaos Space Marines will have none of the cult factions in it. Apparently these are being moved to their own books. It will be like the 3.5 codex on combat drugs!

      Delete
    2. Lets hope they add some flavor to the Undivided book though, other than "they may mix and match marks", because todays codex is very very bland and boring... Which is why I think a Vanilla Marines supplement for undivided might be easier.

      Delete
    3. They might even get rid of the daemon codex

      Delete
    4. With allies etc in 7th I don't see a reason for a daemon dex.

      Delete
    5. Neither Chaos codex will be going anywhere, they'll still be there as a single source of selection each for people wanting to cover a lot of bases (regardless of quality).

      Delete
    6. Maybe make a whole 5th book devoted to, and I mean all 120 pages, hell make it a double, to the 4 traitor Legions that don't have their own books(so Black Legion does, obviously). Some special units, fluff, champs, tell us wtf is going on with the Alpha Legion? Maybe make some really cool Undivided daemons that aren't just furies? Bring back Malal...ok maybe that last one won't likely happen but who knows! It is Chaos! I would love to get some Daemon World rules, Primarchs as Daemon Princes, w/e. Blow us away GW.

      Delete
    7. +1 Mauler. I am cuffed to bits with this info, but it'd be gnarly if they tanked the demon book.

      As I said in a previous post/argument, I like the option of playing either my crimson slaughter CSM, Deamons (preferably Khorne) or a combination both.

      Also like the sound of that bundle/clearance-rack-special/or whatever the hell that box is. I'd buy it. Need all that lot anyway.

      More grist for the chaos mill.

      Delete
  5. Reference cards? Is that something new? Regardless this is great! Can't wait for Nurgle.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Its objective cards, and some new "blood for the blood god" cards.

      Most codices without psychers tend to have other cards, like C'tan powers and Dark Eldar combat drugs.

      Delete
    2. I'm familiar with Objective cards and Psychic Cards but the fact that they are listed as Reference cards makes me curious. You bring up a good point with the DE combat drugs, maybe the Chaos ones will be Boons, powers, devotions or something of the like.... But BFTBG Cards also make me speculate that these could in fact be the "power and abilities" cards and the reference cards may be rules references like other games are producing. One can only hope we get some cards similar to Privateer Press's WarmaHordes cards where rules and powers will be listed and/or we can keep track of stats and mark damage of powers. Here's hoping.

      Delete
    3. I may be wrong but i thought the limited edition codexes usually come with reference cards and they're just the unit entries from the codex. If so then there is 45 units in this new codex though which sounds a lot.

      Delete
    4. Really? Man I completely missed those then lol. That's awesome and kind of what I'm hoping those Khorne ones are. Way easier than constantly reference the book.

      Delete
    5. That doesn't sound all that likely.

      Delete
    6. Way to shoot down my hopes and dreams Right-O.

      Delete
    7. Haha, "You're treading on my dreams, Preston."

      I just think 45 units sounds ridiculous, is all.

      Delete
    8. The "reference cards" are the objectives and the Blood for the Blood God cards, I believe. 36 + 9 = 45.

      Delete
    9. I think you've solved it!

      Delete
    10. Hmm.. I think it could be done. Heck not long ago I would have never thought they would have made cards for anything.

      BUT...

      36 + 9 = 45 This sealed it. You are most likely right. Totally overlooked this. Your Math skills are strong Jedi...

      Delete
    11. I actually liked the reference cards other games use so much I started making my own and laminating them (since daemons and CSM have so many gifts etc) with each units stats and special rules and a photo of the unit at the top like a baseball card

      Delete
    12. Yep really good idea. Any specific program you're using to make those reference cards Ian?

      Delete
    13. Just excel, I screen cap the completed card and put the image in word and resize to standard playing card deck size (I have a card for each discipline for each psyker so I keep them in a playing card deck box

      Delete
    14. Yessir. You've given me an idea for my next project. Thanks man!

      Delete
    15. is it new? hell naw it's older than some people's time playing 40k. welcome to 2nd ed 40k again where they were as common as dice.

      Delete
    16. Indeed, the original versions of 40k had a bunch of cards that were used, wargear cards, strategy. cards, psychic power cards and inquisition psychic cards, i still have a complete set of all the cards including the exclusive cards that were in a few issues of WD

    3. I'll hold on to my tiny spark of hope for a slaanesh codex a little while longer... it'll only make the disappointment all the more crushing!

      Delete
    4. Oh come on, no CSM cult units have had recent releases, they are all old as sin, the only recent God specific releases for 40K are daemons and every god got the same number of units. Yes, a decade ago FW sculpted a couple of kits for Khorne and nurgle, but that was because of Vraks, the fact is in recent history of 40K releases, daemons have been equitably rewarded and CSM equitably snubbed

      Delete
    5. I still had hope from those god specific supplement that were rumored a long long time ago. This just re-sparked that hope for an eventual tzeentch daemonkin codex. Would buy it in an instant!

      Delete
    6. Breaking news! Slaanesh book will also have all 5 Chaos Undivided Legions jammed in it! Because, Slaanesh always gets screwed! And not in the way he/she would prefer! But srsly, GW, make a great book for ALL the Chaos Powers. Then do the other Legions some sweetness. Just tell me what the deal is with the Alpha Legion! The suspense is killing me.

      Whoever made it a 6+ was an idiot

    3. Crushers are useful for summoning but that is about it.

      Delete
    4. As a collector, I'm all about the new models. Why they wouldn't have new Khorne Berzerkers alongside this is beyond me.

      Delete
    5. Id expect the new BloodThirster greater deamon of khorne to get the LoW foc spot, plus a unique formation similar to the necrons Decurion

      Delete
    6. DrBored: why release a new kit when the old one ok as is, all they will do for a new kit is remove x2 marines, and jack the price up by $20 (atleast) as well as have stupidly silly sculpts which would look at home on an ork boy. personally i will be happy if they never re-release Berserkers.

      Delete
    7. You're one of the few that believes that Renegade. The kit is stupid old and it shows. With the new artistic aesthetic of the Chosen and Lord from Dark Vengeance, and the new Raptors, it's clear that GW has a motif they're going for, they just need to apply it to the rest of the range already.

      Delete
    8. I agree that the Zerker kit needs a revamp, but in GW's eyes it seems like it is a plastic kit so why replace it when there's about a zillion finecast kits left

      Delete
    9. no i am probably the only one who thinks that old berko's are awesome (some 10-20 years later) sure their aesthetic does not combine well with newer kits on the front of details. however that is why i like them. it's because they are not wearing the silly DV chosen armor. they are unique as is. PM/1kSons/NM need it more in my honest opinion.

      Delete
    10. I'd just be happy with the berzerker box if they gave us updated arm sprue. Everything else about the kit is A-Ok imho

  10. A box with csm, possessed, terminators and a helbrute? Unless there are formations in this codex that make them amazing, it will be a box of realy useless units.

    1. Helbrutes are good though if you run them in the Mayhem Pack. Deep striking behind enemy lines to mess up vehicles or fortifications? yes please.

      Delete
    3. I run them in groups of three. Point being, they're not as useless as they're made out to be. My Helbrutes are all named and known to my group, they're used/feared that often.

    4. outside of FW titans, everything is shit if it's not combined with something. (even then FW titans are shit if not supported)

      Delete
    5. ^ point being: nothing is as good as people make something out to be if it's solely by itself. in other words everything has to be in a combo to be effective.

      stupid example: player A has a singular Reaver, Player B has 10-20 squads armed with melta's. Player B wins.

      Player A has a army, Player B has an army = it's anyone's game.

      Delete
    6. Yeah the Mayhem Pack are consistent performers for me, dropped in the right spot they are more awesome than a 3 man termicide squad and don't eat 3 elite slots. I've never tried them with other loadouts than pf/mm, I don't have much else as anti tank available either.

      Delete
    7. I think that's the ideal loadout. I toy with the idea of giving them heavy flamers, but the odds of deep striking them perfectly enough to make use of them probably make it not worthwhile. They usually get to shoot once and then get blown up.

      Delete
    8. Then there's the games where the Mayhem Pack drops on and rolls the "can't fire must charge if possible" result on the Crazy Table....oops.

  11. Now I've had time to calm down a little I'm really interested to see where this goes, I wonder if they'll get access to the daemon engines (Hell chicken etc) or just the soul grinder, I'm assuming that in order to balance the codex some of the chaos space marine codex units will be dropped. I'm also interested to see if there is any reference to IA13 because there are some solid Khorne units in that book & I'm not sure of the wording but it would be a shame if some jackass wouldn't let you use them as it only references codex chaos daemons/ CSM.

    1. *snort* Those aren't technically from the same codex, so you can't use them I'm afraid! *snort*

      Delete
    2. Ruleswise there's no such thing as Codex: X anymore, just Factions. So if the Khorne book is set up with detachments that say something like "Faction: CSM and CD, must take Mark of Khorne/be a Daemon of Khorne if possible, no other Marks/Daemons allowed" then the IA:13 stuff would all be good to go.

      Delete
  12. So all those people who bitched that the new Bloodthirster profiles didn't have rules in 40k? Yeah...

    ReplyDelete

    1. Still not certain there will be any updated/new rules though. The 'thirster could just be an entry in this book.

      Definitely hope you're right, don't get me wrong.

    2. i could see it becoming a lord of war at the least, and may get extra rules for the 3 variants. possibly with a formation that uses all 3 variants.

  13. It will be interesting to see how they implement the blended army: either dual-Faction detachments/formations, or a new Khornate Chaos Faction. Either way, at 120 pages I expect this to be a standalone book full of datasheets.

    1. I am most curious whether we will see something that allows a unit with instability to join or be joined by CSM. I mean if a lord can ride a juggernaut, why couldn't he roll with a squad of crushers?

    2. The rumours said dataslates (plural) for each Chaos Power. What is a mini-codex other than a collection of dataslates with some unit profiles, wargear, and a wee bit of background?

      Delete
    3. This isn't a Mini Dex though, it's a full codex with full support and the first in a wave of new codex's for 40k. Please Starchild there is no need to Troll folks, it wasn't picked up by the rumour mill and was only tripped over today the week before release. I do remember hearing about some BIG things happening for Chaos, never thought it would be a full codex though.

      Delete
    4. @Jubby: Unless we see new models, like new Khorne Berzerkers, I'd hardly call this 'full support'. This is just a Codex capitalizing on a new Bloodthirster, which will probably have amazing new rules while the rest of the Codex has some sub-par formations that make Khorne Berzerkers smell slightly better than the crap they are now.

      Delete
    5. *sniff sniff* Someone's been drinking blood!

      Delete
    6. Hopefully the crappy units (looking directly at you Berserkers) get new rules. If not, GW really missed an opportunity here. Few players will pony up for an army book that isnt competitive.

      Delete
    7. Would be ideal but I feel like that would make the old codex awkward. Imagine that the bloodthirster and berserkers got new (presumably better) rules for this army. How do you keep the stats the same in the old army book? Or do you just release a new dataslate a la Tyranids and say "these aren't in your old codex but this is how these units work"? It has the potential to be amazing (and new berserkers would literally make me empty my wallet) but I feel like it will probably be somewhere in between.

      I don't think GW can release a new codex and say "hey we decided not to change any of the rules/points costs, but please buy a full book for this glorified FOC! We promise that it's marginally better than CSM!", so this is potentially quite exciting if they do it right

      Delete
    8. Yeah thats what Im saying. If this book is the same old rules, its not gonna sell as well as it could have.

      Delete
    9. ^ do you even GW. what you listed is what we can EXPECT to get. (nerfs not buffs) and yes they will EXPECT people to rush out and buy the LE and of course people will go and do just that (like they do whenever there is something released by GW)

      Delete
    10. Well I understand where youre coming from Renegade, but I would be surprised if there isnt something in this book to make Khorne lists (assault/CC) somewhat competitive. Changing statlines would make the current Daemon and CSM books obsolete, so sadly I dont see that happening. I am guessing we will see formations that offer buffs to the crappy Khorne units we have now. Unfortunate because that really makes CSM and Daemon codex updates unlikely - as new statlines for units would then make this Khorne book obsolete. So this release suggests no CSM/Daemon Codex update anytime soon.

      Delete
    11. TLDR: unless this Khorne book has updated statlines, CSM and Daemons are stuck with the same shitty rules for the same shitty units for a lot longer than we wouldve hoped. This means we will have to use the formations in the new God-specific books, or remain bottom feeders. Which is ok, but I wouldve liked to see some point costs and rules adjustments, mainly in the CSM book. Those players are really suffering right now. The ones that still even bother fielding CSM.

    12. sorry dude. that was for Luke. but yeah i agree something needs to change. i guess i am pessimistic on chaos releases. especially dex related ones.

    13. SoB: Leviathan updated the Zoanthrope entry, with the new datasheet for them posted on the BL website for free download.

    14. @Alendrel: The entry for it was also in the WD (along with all the other new bugs) and if you go to it's product page there is a link for the rules there too.

    15. Aldo they changed up the harlequins stats and wargear for the new codex so a change isnt unheard of

  20. I've said this for year, chaos gods need their own codex. Spaces wolves has its own for a reason, they are quite different from "normal" marines. Even dark Angels, who really aren't, have their won. Chaos on the otherhand are more different with the gods than eldar are to dark eldar. really glad they have made this move!

    1. Eh DA have 2 unique flyers, 2 unique land speeders, plus their special way of organizing their first 2 companies and the specialized units and relics that those units use, and they are the only legion (since the chapter divisions of unforgiven successors are a feint to throw off the codex astartes thumping losers) that has the the watchers in the dark watching their asses

    2. All that, plus the unique units for said companies (Deathwing Knights and Black Knights), along with the specialized command squads for both companies. Also much of the wargear is unique.

  22. I was looking for Archaon spoliers and stumbled across the Warhammer Empire forum where one of the posters posited that this Khorne release is a one-off, not the beginning of a Chaos God wave. They claimed it was purely written to capitalize on the new Khorne-centric models of the last End Times book.

    1. That can't be correct. We still have three more plastic greater daemons in the future, plus we can't use any of the Fantasy specific End Times models in 40k.

      Delete
    2. Too, this isn't a "wave". GW will release the other daemon kin codexes at various times, not all at once.

    3. hopefully they wont keep us waiting TOO long, all 4 released within a year would be nice, especially if theyll just be one week releases with no new models

      Delete
    4. This is pretty much what I thought. Thanks TheRhino.

      I honestly have no faith that GW will make these Codices for the rest of the Chaos Gods, and I doubt we'll see any new models out of this release, which means the cult troops of Chaos Marines, the ones that really need to be updated, won't get updated.

      Which means Chaos Marine collectors will still be left in the dust.

      Now, if I'm proven wrong over the next couple weeks, that'd be great.

      Delete
    5. ^ most chaos collectors. some (like myself) don't care for newer sculpts. it'd be nice if you don't attempt to talk for every chaos collector out there.

    6. Right back at you Renegade. You're the ONLY person that seems to disagree with me, out of the combined populations of 5 hobby shops and most people that I've seen on the Internet. If you can rally a bunch of people that agree that Khorne Berzerkers don't need new beautiful models to prove me wrong, you win.

      Delete
    7. I think that they will do it for the other Chaos gods, just not immediately. If they have done the other greater daemons it is almost a certainty, I'm think the rest might get a bit more model wise though for 40k so might take longer. Also with daemons you need to look for some kind of synergy with WFB as well as the models are useable in both games, so with End Times done I wouldn't expect any new daemon models until after the new edition of Warhammer is released. Happy to be proven wrong though and have those 3 other greater daemon models seen on the table sooner rather than later.

    8. @ DrBored: only thing is i have already won by not doing that. you see i don't need to rally anyone to my cause. not that anyone would flock to my call of battle. 5 hobby shops? that's exhaustive. i mean only 5 stores agree with you? wow that means i am never going to convince someone that my opinion means anything to anyone but myself. how cute.

  23. If they do this, I'd guess it would be nurgle next, right? Plague zombie models would be awesome, let alone plague marines!

    1. Wasn't there some talk of an upcoming tzeentch release - a campaign box or some such a while back? Would tie in with a daemon kin tzeentch book.

  24. Wow. Way to screw over both Chaos Daemons and Chaos Space Marine players, GW. Daemons players have armies consisting of multiple gods, while CSM players have a lot of stuff as well. Now all of that gets sliced and diced and divided into individual Gods, so it's off to buying multiple new hardback codexes again!

    1. WTF? Are you even serious? If you want undivided you go with Codex: Chaos daemons or codex:CSM. And if you want mono-god you go with Codex: god daemonkin.

      This codex does not replace neither csm nor daemons codex. Like codex: blood angels does not replace codex:space marines.

    2. there is a difference between codex BA and codex SM. there is no actual difference between this new dex compared to that of the current (which might have different stats, thus raises the question can i really have x2 BT's with different stats)

      Delete
    3. There is a difference: new codex only covers Khorne daemons and csm and normal csm codex covers all gods and chaos undivided warbands.

      Also about different stats there are two ways, they can either make new rules trump the old ones and just release the updated rules online like they did with tyranid stuff. Or they can leave two different profiles, like there are two different profiles for chimera (in the AM book it is 65 with lasgun arrays and 2 fire points. And in the inquisition book it is 55 points and 5 fire points). Both ways would be okay by me.

  26. AdMech may not make an appearance this year (if it doe's it will be around Chrimbo or next year) 30k set may NOT happen at all (but anything is possible) there are going to be some surprise releases for 40k like this one.
    Some new Eldar bit's and pieces are in the works (not a new codex but plastic kits maybe related to a campaign box like we have seen). New Daemons... trust me more will come (just make sure you use the correct chant and sacrifice at the right time :D ) and as you all probably guessed the big release this year will be Warhammer Fantasy! Do not worry about Squatted armies or the loss of the game we love, it going to be a EPIC release! Oh and round bases are strictly for 40k.

    1. Looks like you got some good information.

      I wonder if all the AdMech stuff was a Canary Trap.

      Delete
    2. The fact that skittari pages existed in the database definitely indicates that they are happening, I doubt it was a trap

      Delete
    3. Remember though AdMech and Skitarii could be very different releases. In all likelihood the release dates may well be confused (and confusing), In my opinion Skitarii will come around first and the Adaptus will be around much later, (going to be a LOT grimmer then the FW stuff) fingers crossed we will see one this year but as I said it won't be to soon, at least not until after Fantasy hits.

    4. I don't have a specific date but skitarri i was led to believe will drop within the next few weeks/months...

  27. The reference cards are nice; no need to lug a bunch of books around.

  28. The wait all year has been killing me!

    16 Skulls and 8 gallons of Blood for whomever leaks rules.

    Thirster profiles, a formation, what their unique FoC books like... Something!
