Yeah, it's not like Dark Eldar were totally unplayable after a wait over three times longer than CSM will have had if the CSM dex comes out next year...

I know what you were getting at, but it's really not fair to compare this to Dark Eldar. CSM aren't in nearly as bad of a place as Dark Eldar, even historically speaking.

I was simply choosing what I believe to be the codex that had the longest time between updates.

Granted, I play Thousand Sons, and they really ARE in that sort of unusable place right now, which is why that Brotherhood of Dust looked so amazing.

We all know that GW sells models and new updates to popularity. For instance, Tau didn't need an update (they proved that since Kau'yon was literally the same rules with more stuff), but because it's popular, they added a bunch of new models and kits.

Dark Eldar (no offense) was never a big seller, so it took ages for an update. But Chaos was always the Arch Enemy. The big bad to counter everything else. AoS went straight to 'Chaos vs Sigmarines', so you'd think in 40k they'd have the same mentality.

Well, at least a release like this is worth the wait. I imagine it will be about as big as that insane Space Marine update we saw last year, that had their website crashing (which I wonder if that's the reason for weekly releases).

Anyway, CAN'T WAIT for this release, makes me want each kit, and considering how much justice they've done Chaos with the AoS releases, this will likely not disappoint.

I am surprised it's taken them so long to update Chaos, considering the codex was terrible on release anyway (outside of Heldrakes).

I'm going to have to echo the sentiment that this looks like a wish list. Making an entire army redundant and the ability to pick and choose USR's... farfetched, to say the least.

If you would have told me a year ago, that Gargantuans was now part of the main game, that one army could pick STR D from half it's roster, another could deepstrike and assault while supressing overwatch on turn 1 and a third had access to non-deniable 4+ FNP across the entire army, I would have called it farfetched too.

Honestly, while it may be a wishlist, it doesn't seem overpowered in the game that is today.

+1

Actually, whatever it is a wishlist or not, whatever the rules presented, such update includes everything CSM need to match-up the 7th Edition :

- a new chaos boon table,

- point cost adjustment,

- "fluffy" Legion specific rules,

- formations and detachments.

Nothing about new transport units (like Chaos Drop Pods), but I would be quite happy with what is presented ;)

Yeah, you have a point here.

This would be awesome. Can't let myself get carried away with the idea though... it sounds too good to be true

This actually, sadly, was all a lie. The original person finally admitted that it was all wishlist.

As a heads up: If a rumor isn't coming from Sad Panda, Lady Atia, or the old staples of Hastings/Harry, then it's likely complete trash.

Sad Panda, who's been 100% right for over a year now, has said January will see new Fyre Slayers (AoS Dwarfs), and February will see a new Space Wolves codex (because... 'reasons!')

Lady Atia has also said that Wolves are coming early on in the new year.

The only thing that might be on the horizon for Chaos, is the new LoC, which Hastings has hinted at. (but no mention or even hints at another Daemonkin book)



GW is perfectly happy to let Chaos rot, as they clearly have no idea which direction to take the Chaos Marines in, while the model line is so far gone that it needs a Dark Eldar level overhaul. (and that's likely too much of a financial risk in the current climate...)

I'd be willing to bet that we'll see new releases for Wolves (confirmed), BA's, Tyranids and likely even Orks before anything major gets done for Chaos. (and at this point, Daemons are more likely than Marines, as GW can cash-in across both systems!)
