ok a huge flurry of new rumours coming thru so like the original ill post and put my thoughts on each
-Release date: September 1st
hmmmm now weve heard several different dates about the actual release sooner rather than later for me :D
hmmm hard back jus helps to line the pockets of those running GW
-There is an Eye of the Gods-like table ~like the WFB Warriors of Chaos table.
You get to roll on whenever a character kills another character in a challenge, or a Walker or Monstrous Creature. There is a multitude of gifts (and curses) that your Characters can acquire which range from +1 Save, +1 Toughness, or becoming either a Spawn or a Daemon Prince!!!
mmmm this soundreally interesting more fluffy than game breaking as you dont have 2 accept a challange
-Chaos Cultists are in -'Cult' units are all Elites and are unlocked to Troops by appropriate HQ choices
weve seen this all ready
-The Dragon flyer is in - think Necron Night Scythe with the main chassis replaced by a massive mechanical dragon head with segmented wings sweeping forward and around from it.
i think this description is quite poor from looking at the night scythe you cant really seea dragon lol
-Dark Apostles - ~Word Bearers rejoice!!!
well this is interesting with the addition of chaos cultist hopefully the dark apostles will make them fearless :D
-Warp Smiths - Chaos Techmarines that can curse vehicles and degrade terrain. ~maybe they'll have anti-psychotic grenades :)
this is quite nasty and very kool for a ironwarrior army
-New Daemon Engine - half way between a Dreadnought and a Defiler.
im not sure how this will end up sounds interesting
-Defilers are Daemons and have a 5+ Inv save.
this is even better than having 4 hull points a proper statline :D
-No Cult Terminators ~boo hiss!!!
i can live with this
-Obliterators are exclusively for shooting - so no powerfists.
if thats the case T5 and cheaper :D
HOWEVER there is a new unit which is basically a close combat Obliterator.
this seems interesting multi wounded termies that can use different CC weapons :D
-There are 2 types of Raptors now: regular CSMs with Jump Packs, and Possessed Daemonic Raptors with Lightning Claws.
another interesting unit sumthin that has been covered as a unit for the night haunter fans
-Possessed take multiple benefits from the Eye of the Gods table.
this will make possessed awesome :D maybe lol
-NO Daemons in the Codex.
makes sense with the allies rule they dont need2 be in the codex
so more very interesting rumours im looking foreward 2 playing chaos again even more
