Default New Chaos Marines Boxset?

This is a bit late. But I think thought it was coming back in September when they redid nomal marines.

Please remember that this is a rumor.

via an anonymous source on Faeit 212
Got a bit of a news item for you. I've seen a few pictures of a sprue with a number of finished models. The sprue and models in question are for a new chaos space marine infantry kit. They are supposedly intended to be a replacement for the standard chaos infantry kit but also have options for chaos chosen within the kit ala the space wolves packs' wolf guard.

Design wise the models seemed to be a mix of ornate and non ornate armour pieces. There were a number of power weapons, combi weapons and what looked to be an autocannon in plastic. I was told that hopefully their release would not be far off and would be released with a few other chaos kits.

I'm sick of making my own combi weapons (and autocannons), so this would be most welcome!

Would be nice, but I don't see it happening as the CSM squad box was updated just a few years ago.

Well, it would be nice. The kit is decent, but an update wouldn't hurt anyone.

While I believe this to be quite plausible, I wouldn't expect a release in the near future

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

If there is any kit that needs a remake, it's the Chaos Marines.

Here's to hoping no more stupid belt-fed bolters and giant horned helmets!

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

But the horns make them go faster?
... Gore harder?
... Look cooler?
Hm, never mind.

Hm. The thing that bugged me the most with the Chaos Space Marine infantry box was actually the poses on the legs (along with the detailing on the legs that where unfortunately placed in some circumstances). Not that the never marine kits are much better there... When I dream I dream about boxed sets with 10 pairs of legs that are all in different poses.

Well, sometimes when I dream I dream about that.

I would ask but i probably dont wantto know the answer.

Personally i dont mind the belt fed Heavy Bolter or the honed heads. but its be nice to have a larger option of heads to choose from.

Agree with the legs, the mold lines down the side are real pain. Also, the lack of variety in CSM leg options. I only use about 4 of the CSM sprue heads too. I've been kitbashing my NL with Legion heads & loyalist pieces for a while now & they're turning out great.

I kinda hope this rumour isn't true, I've too many bugs to build for new CSM stuff to show up.
