If Pedro isn't a great example, what about Crowe from the Grey Knight Codex? Would he be at literally every battle with more than a couple squads of Purifiers present? Probably not, yet he's required if you want a Purifier-heavy army. It's just how the game works these days, so I don't really get why Chaos players are surprised by the news.
I can't speak for anyone else in this thread, but I just think its a poor game mechanic. And I wouldn't make that case any differently as a chaos player or an eldar one. It ratchets up the static nature of armies, which I find disappointing.

I think its perfectly reasonable to have a character with no set options that becomes the X to take an army endowed with extra Y. The previous chaos codex did that, and I wish they gave every army that flexibility.

Oh I agree with the general sentiment that the idea is a silly one, I'm just remarking on the apparent surprise I've seen among Chaos players here and elsewhere that their book will get the same treatment as everyone else.

I'd like to return to the days of more complex sub-armies as much as anybody, but it isn't looking likely to return anytime soon, if at all.

More rumors from totally unknown sources! Because we love unknown source, don't we?

Imagine a dragon made of "fire" and coverd in a platemale armor and you won't be too far off. That is the best discription I can give.

Some of the concept art shows it mauling a valkyrie mid flight. It is pretty cool.
From the Faeit 212 blog.

My prediction:

With more flames. And it combines with the Dreadknight-equivalent and the not-dreadnought into Megabaddon.

As a rumour origionating from Blood of Kittens I can guarentee it'll be bollocks. He never gets anything right... yet people still rate him. Go figure.

I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend that once spoke with a GW manager that Horus is actually being brought back.

"There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has though and purpose which functions on an unimaginable, galactic scale and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us by instinct. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey."

Well I heard from my roomate's, pet's, best friend's, mom's, pen-pal that the emperor has actually fallen to Chaos, and is going to be inducted into the next codex. Oh, and GW is actually decreasing prices!

If you can't spell correctly, then I won't trust your rumours, mister anonymous source.

As for the mini-discussion about Special Characters being Unlocks, I think it's a GREAT idea. Gives us a reason to actually buy the things, rather than them haemorrhaging GW money languishing on the shelves, because people can simply say 'No, I think Special Characters are broken, and refuse to play against them!' - While generic ones are perfect in some cases (and I would prefer, for instance, the Khornate Legion HQ to be called a Blood Slaughterer, with Kharn the betrayer as an Upgrade Character to this HQ selection) overall having a reason to buy these usually overpriced underpowered but aesthetically pleasing figures is good.

I am curious, why do you put 'nids and Sisters as 'unbalanced'? They are my two primary armies and I do just fine with them. I'd say at worst, they are "take more skill" lists...

He may be referring to a tournament where their was over 200 players and their was not a single nid or sister player.

If I may - he's likely referring to the fact that Nids have few reliable anti-tank options, and they are all in the same slot. As good as Hive Guard are, they'd be FAR better if Zoanthropes could be taken alongside, diffusing enemy fire. The total inability of their Troops to seriously threaten vehicles also holds them back.
