Not everything is top notch, but I'm pretty stoked about it! I always take units with the mark of Khorne, but it will be interesting to have Khorne buffs while taking another mark with the HQ. I really like these relics, I think every one sounds good to me. That Chosen upgrade is pretty cool, too. Don't roll any 2s! The Warlord Traits aren't half bad, either.

This book doesn't have anything game-breaking, and ultimately that's a good thing. I do like what I see, I hope everything is true! If so, I don't regret spending my money on this supplement at all. Sweet! Forces of evil, rejoice!
That doesn't seem too bad honestly. I think I'll pick the book up after all

I have reservations and some hopes about the Crimson Slaughter. I might ally in a Divination Sorc or some such, depending on the wording of the Divination Relic's rules. I have yet to see the finalized new rules for the Possessed, and have heard conflicting rumors as to their random chart, but still can't see myself taking them.

The Chaos battleforce is excellent, though I'd much rather have seen a trio of bikers than those raptors--ah well, were I to buy it, I imagine I'd resell the Raptors. The rest, though, is all useful and engaging.

Put lord in possessed, use allied grimoire for a minimum 3++ going to a 2++ on the right roll.

I'm pretty sure you can't give allies wargear out of your codex like that.

Could I not take an allied crimson slaughter detachment using the CS artefacts?

I'm planning on going Black Legion or CSM for the main part and then bringing a crimson slaughter detachment of an allied sorcerer and some cultists. I'm going to bring as many demon engines as I own and buff them with divination (prescience for Forgefiend etc)

The allied CS Sorc could use it yes, but the way you phrased the post made it sound like you were giving the Black Legion Sorc the item instead.

Well, the dark gods showed me favor and I acquired my collector's edition earlier today, so I'll confirm some of the stuff posted earlier, if that's okay

Quote:
Crimson Slaughter
Crimson Slaughter can ally with as Battle Brothers with Chaos Space Marines<--yep

All models in the Crimson Slaughter Detachment have Fear.<--yep

Choose one unit of chosen to be upgraded at +10pts. Gain preferred enemy.<--you upgrade the champion for ten points and he gains the rule, but if he is killed it goes away

Possessed are Troops. Roll a d3 at the start of the CS players turn. 1: Unit and Vehicle if embarked are shrouded 2: Unit type becomes Beast 3: Gain a 3+ invul save and rending<--yep, it removes the standard one, the one that replaces it is called Slaves to the voices

New one: Renegades of the Dark Millenium- only cult troops can take Vertrans of the Long War

Warlord TraitsThese are mostly accurate, new stuff in the red
1. Warlord and unit gain hate, extra bonus's against Dark Angels<--they reroll misses every round of combat against Codex Dark Angels
2. All enemy units within 12" of warlord suffer a -2 to fear tests<--also enemy units suffer a -1 to their leadership which is also in the 12" bubble
3. Warlord has Rage and Furious Charge, but must charge attempt to assault if within 12"
4. Warlord and unit gain Crusader
5. Enemy models in base contact with Warlord take d6 S3 ap hits at the beginning of each assault phase
6. Warlord has shrouded

Relics<--I'll add the point costs in here
301. Replaces a powermaul on a Dark Apostle S +2 AP4 Concussive and all CS units in 6" gain Zealot
30 Chaos Lord only power sword with said effect, total is tallied at the end of every assault phase2. Soul Siphon gains powers based off of enemy models removed in close combat. Effects last the rest of the game 1. +1S 3. AP 2 5. +1S 10. Instant Death
153. Furious charge, Hamer of Wrath and rage
254. Gain Divination and can re-roll failed psychic tests. No Deny the Witch bonus's
305. Cannot be taken by a Daemon Prince. Gains 2+ save and it will not die
306. Gain Daemon, Fearless, and fleet, and gains the Crimson Slaughter possessed mutation-roll a d3. <--also can only join possessed chosen from the CS detatchment
All and all I'm pleased with the look of the codex, the sleek black cover that has a glowing green picture appear on the back once it gets warm. It had some interesting fluff too, and wasn't exactly what I expected from a slaughter happy chaos warband, honestly I expected more khorne related things. I'm gonna start writing up a list using what I mostly have and use this new dex, it should be fun ^^

-There is nothing that can not be beat with a proper application of gauss fire-
Bloody Harvest of Destroyer Lord Badrum W- D- L-

-Vengeance for the betrayed!-
Dark Talons CSM Warband(Dex:CS) W- D- L-

Yeah, things don't go well for them, it stinks of someone of something pulling the strings in the background later on, and could be true as the cool divination artifact? it belonged to the head librarian that had been taken completely by a Lord of Change of all things >.> so Tzeentch demon up in our happy slaughter marines, these guys are weird.

Also it has a footnote of those Crimson Saber members that chose not to turn(4th captain and 59 members of his company), they ran off swearing that the next they meet it would be as foes. And they are still helping somehow because there are sightings of Crimson Saber heraldry still in service despite the inquisition essentially erasing them from the records.

Also they hate the Dark Angels, and know their secret, lolz....

I am kinda curious about who their parent chapter was, as it likely wasn't the three mentioned in the dex that they interacted with, being the smurfs, DA, and BAs.
