For me it's the Chaos only.

The Lord screams Sorcerer rather than Lord to me, the Chosen will probably be split into unit champs and the cultists will go in the box of old metals I already have.

Hellbrute, hmm now there is the only bit that does have me excited tbh.

This may all change when the Dex arrives mind.

Same here. Far too "fleshy" for my taste, however. Is it mutated dreadnought or somethig new? Any clues?

The rumours are that its a new unit, though whether its totally new or an upgrade is still out there, Rumour also suggest you can give it a mark, so that khorne are more assaulty, nurgle tougher, Slaanesh grenades and tzeentch AP3 and +1 strength to flame weapons. (NICE!!) Obviously until the new dex this is just rumours

I'm planning on covering that awful head with either a defiler helmet or deamon prince head otherwise I love it

My lord will lose his plasma pistol for a pointing hand and be a sorcerer lord, been looking for one to stand out as a HQ for my sons

Svart, just keep them on a shelf with some of your festy plaguemarines. Before long they will be nurgle infected and joining the ranks of chaos. I have to admit i had not lookad at the pics of the models before this thread and initially i made my comment and vote without seeing them. I am quite impressed with the chosen, dread and the cultists. I am sure i could find them a home.

Will hopefully be getting the whole box to get myself back into playing, and teach the sprog to play too if he's interested.

Debating whether to keep the DA's as they are or try for sallie conversions. Shouldn't be too hard with the exception of the company master.

I'm thinking of combining both sets of models and making a Word Bearer Army to go along with my Chaos Daemons.

The quality of those sculpts for starter mini's staggers me. Indeed the chaos stuff is superior to the current range with all that blingage. Really shows what GW can produce.

I'll be keeping both, the Chaos for my assorted chaotic forces and convert the Dark Angels into Astral Claws. I foresee a lot of filing, scraping and sculpting in the near future.
