This morning we have another round of Chaos Space Marine rumors from TastyTaste over at Blood of Kittens. I was comparing these rumors to the QnA session we had and everything looks very close, but there are some point differences for some of the cult units. Either way we are getting very close to seeing this codex, so its not too early to get excited.
Please remember that these are rumors, and do not forget to head on over to Blood of Kittens and check out what is going on there!
First off, I want to say that it just doesn’t make any sense for GW to release the new Starter Set with models that doesn’t have a codex, so we have to assume that CSM codex will be out before the starter set. The only way they don’t (would be a big slap in the face) would be they add a mini update like Daemons and still put off the CSM codex release.
Anyway on to more rumors/leaks.
Remember I might just repeat other rumors floating around and debunk others.
