But the 'use the SC rules as your own Chaos Lord' thing doesn't fit.

What if I want to take someone like The Exalted as my Tzeentch Chaos Lord? TDA/Twin Lightning Claws is nothing like Ahriman's loadout. Equally, what if I want a Power Armoured Nurgle Lord? There's no customisability - call the guy what you want, he still has x, y and z and there's no way of changing that.

I seriously doubt Pedro Kantor is at every battle the Crimson Fists fight either, yet he's required to play a Crimson Fist army. It's the same thing, Chaos isn't going to be given special consideration here. If you want an army with a specific theme, you have to take the character, like just about everyone else in the game these days.

If they are going with the stupid SC unlocking route they better make Thousand sons and noise marines a hell lot more us full, other wise I expect to so 25-30 times more Kharn, and typhus lists then Ahriman or Lucius lists. I mean who would be stupid enough to take Lucius or Ahriman just to take so so CSM's as your troops?

Also I am generally not a fan of adopting anymore similarities to the smurf book, as the greater the gap between the two the happier I am. This book is also so heavily expected that it would be a shame if it ended up just grabbing trends and concepts from other books. Although I think all those with 2-3 CSM dreads like me are a bit pissed about the idea of them just drooping a unit from the book all together.

I hate having to take special chars to unlock certain options, mainly because our gaming club doesn't allow special chars in games. It's something I've been trying to get changed but the old timers say they are so unbalanced and ruin the game as you build your army around them rather than with them.

One of the reasons I didn't start collecting Grey Knights, I wanted to make henchmen armies but I can't, not at our gaming club anyway.

I wish, problem is I live on a small shitty island so I basically have to take what I get.

Also why do you end your posts with "Midnight", you name is next to your post so why "sign" your posts?

BOLS Time? BOLS Time!

Chaos Marines
-The "flying dragon thingy" is coming. It is a flyer and one of two entirely new units added to the codex.
-The second new unit is said to be a Chaos answer to the Grey Knight Dreadknight.
-The Chaos Dreadnought is indeed still there (take a breath people), but gets a new name, and a rules overhaul.
-Hardcover book (just like Fantasy army books)
Quote:
6th Edition
-Many of the general concepts from magic from Warhammer Fantasy are coming to Warhammer 40,000.
-There will be "lore equivalents"
-Psychic powers will be generated randomly by psykers (like fantasy)
-Entirely new rules for constructing army lists (~Look at Fantasy for hints)
-The FOC may be history
Fantasy mechanics leaking into 40k? Uaaargh this is fucked up. Fantasy's gone down the shitter because of these new rules

edit:
- Signed, Albert Romellius the Third, Prince of Oreozania.

I would say that your argument is slightly flawed since Pedro only unlocks veterans that are basicly just marines with slightly better armour and equipment.

Besides, it would make sense for the loyalist leaders to all have the same wargear since they follow the codex astartes. There is no codex nurglite that demands all Death Guard leaders to be scythe wielding, terminator armoured sorcerers.
