I think if they repeat this again and only release a new greater deamon for £70(or in that ball park) and a deamonkin codex, people will get annoyed, particularly those who want thousand sons minis in plastic not to mention those who want plague marines in plastic, Each of the popular chapters of loyalist marines has a fair number of themed units all of there own, it really is time they made an effort producing either power or legion specific models for chaos players.
I'd wager that's because other cult choices are in more of a priority need for updating. Berzerkers are at least plastic, plague marines, rubric marines, and noise marines are all in need of the plastic treatment, ESPECIALLY noise marines. I wouldn't lose hope that they will be updated with these daemonkin releases. Just imagine the new codex format using the current noise marine models in their photos. No way, that wouldn't fly. They don't even show up in the C: CSM from 2012! haha. (Other than the gallery.)

Hey all.. just as excited for this release as most, not for the regular reasons but because it shows GW is willing to expand and progress an already almost limitless range of models in one of my favorite fictional universes.. so on to the good stuff..
-expect an official AdMech codex sometime in the future, i can't pin down a date as yet but it will def be coming, with duhduhduhn ....HQ units.
-Eldar are def next.. I'm still saying its not a redo of the 2yo codex but more of a sideways re-invisioning of the Iyanden book with the other craft worlds expounded upon. Until we really see the book in hand its a lil up in the air but i expect it to work WITH Codex:Eldar rather than replacing it..
-also i can't wait for the upcoming Campaign if only to get my hands on some lovely new LE HQ's.
-sidenote: Vect & the dais... on the horizon.. quite possibly as i saw an email subject title yesterday "V w/ D primary context and mockup art" so there's something stirring in commoragh, could be next month but alas it could be next year too, with the way GW works they could slide a one week
-Codex:Demurig in somewhere without flinching LOL.
Happy holidays to all..

I totally agree, im of the mind that any new codex should have at least three new units as a way of justifying its cost to buy for the player and the work of the writer and artists, the three units could be three clam packs or three dual multipart kits, as you say though the other cult troops do need plastic more than khorne did, a truly themed kit for each of the other three gods in plastic would win over many a chaos fan. Its a no brainer, its as plain as the wart on nurgles ass crack.

It's hard to tell lately if the plastic treatment rumors pertain to 40k or Fantasy, as the Blightkings and Wrathmongers are basically God specific WoC Chosen, but didn't we hear some hulabaloo about Nurgle themed marines on newer 32mm bases? I recall that for some reason but maybe I am just pulling things out of the air.

Tzeentch has definitely come up more than once lately too, so I'd wager we have a good bet that he will get some plastic stuff in the future.

as long as you don't think about sisters, this statement will come true. Look how much they were talked about a little while ago then vanished again... are we sure they ever existed?

As far as plastic troops yeah the khorne ones are a bit dorky but they are plastic... my nurgle marines are mostly lead, which is fine Nurgle is supposed to give you diseases. My thousand sons are just he old single pose bezerkers with the chain sword lopped off and a piece of platicard glued on their helmet with lines etched in... where was I going with this.... oh yeah I think I need some new thousand sons models.

I would buy this.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

^ it's all about the cost to pipe ratio. If the cost is high but you get all the pipe you could hope for...see where I'm going with this?
