Default Codex: Khorne Daemonkin



It appears to be real!

Whoa, a new codex is coming this weekend, codex Khorne Daemonkin. I can already see that this might very well lead into the other chaos gods as well, which is something everyone has really been looking forward to for years. This is going to be rather exciting.


This is not really a rumor at this point, as I have many sources sending it to me.

Hmm I'm not too fussed about this I must admit - I think it's a weird step to take. Why not just combine the two dexes to one big Chaos codex, instead of this weird hybrid step?

I think it feels like a half-assed solution to a bigger problem. I'm guessing the plan is now to reveal 4 codecies, with marines and daemons in each?

The cases sound interesting, how many models does a standard case hold? (The £35 one?)

Who knows what their plans are? In all likelihood the rules will suck anyway, let's be honest. But I don't even care, this is exactly the army I wanted. Not that I couldn't play it before by using the allies matrix, but this is something new and exciting.

I would hope that this format doesn't necessarily replace the Khorne-themed aspects of the CSM/Daemons codices. But who knows? It would allow them to release like 6 fucking books, so that might be right up their alley.


*edit*

Here's the big question I have, though: As Battle Brothers, will Khorne-CSM and Khorne-Daemons units/Independent Characters finally be able to join each other? The current rules prevent that, and that's always gimped our abilities when allying.

Before anyone points out any working URL's:

...and you get the exact same result.

OT: I guess those "Book of Khorne" rumors were true after all. So hopefully the other three gods will get theirs soon enough.

It would be great if there's a new unit option, or two (or ten ). New models seems pretty unlikely, but you never know! As has been said before, I think we can count on something good for the new Bloodthirster(s). But I suppose I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same rules as before.

I really hope they continue with these for the other 3 gods. A Tzeentch book would be very exciting, as well. Hell, they all would.

Being cynical and knowing GW, they'll publish a Book for Nurgle and then give up

Let's not pretend that isn't entirely possible.

I can't beleive that the red shirt just told me the true!!! I am so happy now!! Now, lets see what will be inside because a codex will not change the rule for assaulting! Now I hope for better bloodletter, better rule for bloodthirster...

Anything on the ‘Blood for the Blood God’ cards?

Just speculation, at this point. I can imagine the units getting more frenzied as the game progresses, maybe with some close combat bonuses or something.
