I'm just hoping that it isn't a detachment which requires you to use the units as they are in the Dark Vengeance box, i.e. that unit of Chosen with all the close combat weapons.
Yeah I agree with the lesser legion thing. Lots of people on Natfka are pissed because it isn't one of the traitor legions or god supplements, but I like to think it's an opportunity to give us something new and unique. I still hope they release the other supplements, though. Might as well.
I agree with them over on Natfka. Who cares about a CSM warband that didn't exist until Dark Vengeance? All us CSM players want is some way to add a little individuality to our army, something that separates us instead of just what colour we choose to paint our minis. The VOTLW supplement rumours gave us a little hope to personalise our army with legion suiting rules, but no, we (might) get this.
CSM players have been crying out for legion rules for 40K since they introduced them in codex 3.5. The Black Legion codex once again gave a little hope that they were planning to release a codex for each legion, but GW (maybe) waste time and resources on a Crimson Slaughter codex, when it could have been an Iron Warriors, World Eaters, Word Bearers, etc. one.
In an ideal world I would love to have a mini-dex for each legion. Nothing fancy, just one or two rules to represent how each legion wages war, maybe a couple of unique items or wargear. Please? I just want to be able to upgrade my Night Lords so that they all have fear, even if it would be useless against every loyalist marine army.
Címon GW, sort this out.
