Here's a thought. Instead of drop pods, maybe they'll get something akin to the DE webway portal, that allows them to come into play via a warp rift? Would be more fluffy than just another marine-ripoff vehicle...

I've never viewed the drop pod as a 'marine rip off' - they had them before the heresy, along with speeders and other 'marine' vehicles...it seems that the game designers have simply forgotten this fact!
However your warp portal idea is quite good, i like it! Perhaps a sort of improved deep strike ability representing this?

Seems to me that Chaos should get every the marines had during the heresy at the very least, this includes drop pods, so it's not really a rip off, it's what chaos is, traitor marines.

Chaos marines having all the same gear as marines? No point in a new codex, just use the marine one and add spikes.

Chaos marines don't have access to the adeptus mechanicus or up-to-date repair facilities. Of course they won't *still* have all the vehicles marines do.

I recently played against a DE player who dropped a dohicky in the middle of the table, and next turn his army started pouring out of it. Something like that would be a simple convert for chaos, and represent using warp rifts or whatever. Much better than a simple marine copy'n'paste. Or alternatively, a daemon prince character who gives a unit the ability to come in like summoned daemons do (far superior to deepstriking)...

I just thought I'd put this out there. For something that is supposed to be coming out so soon, it seems to me that the DarkGeneral has a few to many words like "play test" and "probably, but could change"

well thats whats called "the save ass", personally i think most of the rumour gurus are just picking stuff out of thin air and calling it gospel.

Chaos deserves some unique cool stuff, so rather than giving them access to boring ass marine vehicles, they should get cool chaos stuff like more deamon engines and stuff undreamed of by mortals like us forum dwellers.

Apart from half the mechanicus turning traitor and setting up forgeworlds in the eye of terror, i'd agree. While I don't want the chaos marines to simply be spikey marines, they are essentially traitor marines - so there is justification (perhaps even a demand) for similar kits to an extent, but with a corrupted feel.
Anyhow, all of this is wish listing and personal preference....still waiting on some proper rumours...

What month does GW raise their prices in? Would it be worth buying some CSM now or wait for the new expensive stuff?
Personally I dont care as I rarely buy new (and if I do it's from ebay or a discount seller) but I'm sure future chaos players would be interested.

I guess another 20-30% price increase is to be expected...

Hmm, does that mean GW will have increase their prices by about 60% over a 3 year period on most kits?

good lord where do people get those numbers from? GW does a 12-15% increase to their product once a year. The "hey lets shoot our selves in the foot public by saying we're releasing models in a cheaper material but are raising our prices at the same time" fubar with Finecast was the largest I can recall at 15%.

Be Sure to follow me on:

@B&K: the books done and dusted by now. It's only now you'll start getting solid rumours as the finished book leaves the security of the Studio. And that *really* pisses off the poor writers, who can't do grand reveals of their hard work, as everyone will know all the surprises already. It's both demoralising and spirit crushing.
