That's...dependent on whether your chaos are heresy era marines or recent renegades.
Would love a heresy era style chaos raider. Even better, a dataslate that lets me put sonic weapons on one. I'd use one then.
Rather than having a sealed boxed one right at the back of the to-do pile.

Ok that'd be fun to play against.

It just irks me a little that sm get every single sort of landraider ever concieved and as soon as marines fall to chaos, they forget how to make anything other than a vanilla raider.

Then you look at FW - the Achilles. With av14, ceramite hull and a thunderfire cannon and multi melta sponsons...then I think a LR with sonic blaster sponsons and a blastmaster upgrade really shouldn't be too much of a stretch.

God specific vehicles would be cool - make a khorne one less shooty but faster, give a nurgle one IWND and give a tzeentch one a 5++ maybe. Put the parts on an upgrade sprue and it would've seriously increased chaos LR sales imo

I field Land Raider Crusaders as my dedicated transport to my Bonecrushers of Achaylus Chaos to Glory, Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch HQ's and Chaos Terminator Squads (each squad has 10 Termies each) and i don't a flying crap about what the codexes say.

Ultramarines are Pussies

Except Dark Angels, any chapter that sounds like a Death Metal Band can't be that bad.

oh suck it up you heretic you get Heldrakes and forge world demon engines that look more visually interesting then another 'Screw you and all you hopes and dreams!' land raider.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Haha yeah, I gotta agree that most imperial vehicles are pretty boring visually while the daemon engines are wicked awesome.

Regarding the raider, though, we wouldn't even need a different kit to have additional variants. Just a few lines of text and MAYBE a multimelta and some other sponson weapons. Just something interesting beyond having Kharn get eaten by your daemon-possessed tank. I think Dark Mechanicus priests get amnesia when they betray the Emprah. A sort of psychic "Fuck you!" from the husk on the golden throne.

Yessss, my lord Abaddon. I possess the knowledge to create an engine of unfathomable destruction called the... the... er, what was it called again? Where have I put those blasted schematics? SERVITOR! BRING ME THE SCHEMATICS TO THE... THING!

Melding demon and vehicle into an unstoppable engine of destruction - check.
Replacing crew with demons - check.
Adding strange eldritch wargear from demon worlds - check.
Fitting a different weapon? Erm sorry boss, that's beyond me...boss? Boss?
Crunching sounds are heard, Tank noms Abaddon.

THIS! This is why the Dark Mechanicus won't let us have nice things! Because it always ends with Abaddon getting nomed.



Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the space orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Yeaaaah Ultramarines!

From a 'models' point of view.

If a new chassis was incoming, SM would get it first (like they did with the rhino, years back).
If a new sprue with God related paraphernalia that was compatible was to be added, then GW would make it separate and charge you £20 for it.
