I think if they repeat this again and only release a new greater deamon for £70(or in that ball park) and a deamonkin codex, people will get annoyed, particularly those who want thousand sons minis in plastic not to mention those who want plague marines in plastic, Each of the popular chapters of loyalist marines has a fair number of themed units all of there own, it really is time they made an effort producing either power or legion specific models for chaos players.
I'd wager that's because other cult choices are in more of a priority need for updating. Berzerkers are at least plastic, plague marines, rubric marines, and noise marines are all in need of the plastic treatment, ESPECIALLY noise marines. I wouldn't lose hope that they will be updated with these daemonkin releases. Just imagine the new codex format using the current noise marine models in their photos. No way, that wouldn't fly. They don't even show up in the C: CSM from 2012! haha. (Other than the gallery.)
