I'm going to be interesred in how many folks dig it, and how many hate it.

A lot of folks are bitching about it, a lot are saying they dig it.

I want to see some numbers on this!

The way I see it, Chaos Space marines were WAY WAYYY overpowered and needed a leash in order to be at least remotely balanced with the other armies.

What I don't care for is the overwhelming generic'ism of the Chaos Legions and Daemons, but at least it's at least somewhat balanced in comparison to Space Marines.

In this version: Daemons are daemons, whatever you call them, nurglings, bloodletters, daemonettes...they are just minor daemons now. Bloodthirsters, Lord of Change, etc...just a major Daemon now.

Plague Marines, Thousand Sons, Berserkers, Noise Marines...all simply troop choices now.

I dunno. I think it screws up people wanting to make a pure Death Guard Army or Wold Eaters, or Word Bearers army a bit...but then...it doesn't.

Take your Plague Marines as troop choices, take your HQ and model him up as a nurgle guy, take possessed nurgle-looking guys and nurglings (lesser daemons) and you have a Death Guard force...and you get more choices now for Fast Attack and Heavies too.

Actually we all got copies as part of a super-secret sect that you aren't a part of. Unfortunately you have to wait until october for it. Sorry.


Just Joking.
Hey i noticed that. Is this really what it looks like? Can our guys fire their bolters from 24" away if they dont move...then 2 turns later fire bolt pistols and charge into cc with 3 attacks (1 + 2ccw + charge)?
Yup, exactly.
Honestly, it can be argued that regular SM can add a pistol and CCW and do the same (in most cases a pistol and CCW are considered additions instead of replacements). But that is an argument for another thread.
