I just wonder if they bothered to change anything in those supplements. I already have the Crimson Slaughter book and I don't feel like shelling out another $50 if nothing has changed....

Well, it's something. Maybe now people will actually start buying more Chaos.

Or GW could, you know, release new models of characters that at this point badly need re-sculpts; Kharn, Abaddon, Ahriman, Typhus & Lucius are ok but could also use a touch up, or a new codex, or a chaos imperial knight like thing, a NEW landraider of Chaos origins, drop pods...

In other words, they could act like they give a damn instead of just releasing a few formations and call it a day.

GW could be printing money right now and instead they are 4 days late with the worlds worst April Fools joke.

If it is like the Ork one they just did, they will fold some of the random WD and campaign formations into it, add a over priced 'decurion' option, and call it a day.

Something to note, at the very least the 'Chosen of Abaddon' was already done in Pandorax, so they're starting to reuse the Apoc formations now.

Forgeworld already did the Chaos Knight, and GW and FW don't step on each other's toes.

You won't get a new Land Raider because GW has decided that CSM are not going to be spiky loyalists. You'll get the tanks that are already there, but so far it looks like any new 'vehicle' will be a dino bot demonically-blended monstrosity, to make them obviously not spiky legions.

And CSM will cry forever because they can't have toys like marines can.

Its a shame that this is the direction they've chosen. Especially with the great Sigmar Chaos sculpts. Hopefully this does pave the way for new sculpts of the big names.

Actually, now I'm curious, what was the last new model for CSM? Was it that Aspiring Champion?

The only one that's any good is the sorc one, and only as a method of adding some to demon kin etc without a bullshit tax.
The demon engine one is mediocre for the 450 price tag

Pretty much.


Still, why couldn't they have released that Cultist box when I still gave a fuck about CSM?
Been debating if I should get out the unfinished Nurgle marines and have another go at the army. But then I started painting my Bolt Action Germans......
