>> Have seen the new possessed models, and have to say they are bastard ugly. Worse than the metals they brought out a few whiles ago.

>> Didn't see sprues, as boss in GW wouldn't show me them, but it looks like, if anyone has seen the pictures, what you see is what you get. Any thoughts on this. I for one will stick to the sprue you get wi the marines, unless GW decide to drop them in the new boxes, which aren't much different as they are now.

Thats weird I'm pretty much in love with the new Possessed - I mean at least this time they are plastic and multipart unlike the previous ones which look like they should have come out in the early 90's.

>> Dont really like the lord on jump pack either, just looks like a raptor aspiring champ, but might make a good Night Lords champ. The spawn are pretty fucking cool though. Oh well, not everyone likes the same shit. :D

I agree with you on the lord - I'd use him for a Raptors Aspiring Champ. I'm not a fan of the head.

Wow! I love those possessed!

The one with the wings--well, all of them, would make for great conversions!

Sorry, Wraith! I didn't see those! :oops:

Hehe no prob Anph.

As far as those Possessed go, they are exactly what I picture in my mind when I think Chaos Marine or when I read the books. Faces in the armour, mutations, etc. Not just arrow shaped trim and spikes on the armour. I can honestly see myself making an entire army out of those models :D

Lol now that would be cool.

Is it just me or has anybody else wondered where the spikes and trim have come from on their armour? We have seen the Pre-Heresy armours and I don't see no spikes.

The idea of all the space marines sitting down and nailing spikes and trim to their armour is hilerous.

"Hey Lucius can you pass the hammer?"
"Sure Eidolon, nice trim work there - any chance of giving me a hand"

I love the new possessed better than those Incest created piles of dog excretion like previous one, the Raptor Lord guy sucks harder than a pensioner on crack though, and the Khorne lord, and the Spawns

I like the new Khorne lord quite a bit. Planning on using him as the champ in my Berzerker squad.

The previous possessed looked like cracked out 80's rock stars. Iggy Pop after being dead for a week comes to mind. They are horrid, who's the ass who ok'ed their production? The new possessed look pretty good. I made my own Plague Marine possessed......I used Deathguard bodies and the old possessed sprues and then tacked on wings instead of the backpack. But now that possessed abilities will be randomized(must be the same moron who thought the 80's punk rocker look fit the possessed), it kinda blows my wing conversion out of the water.

>> And thats the problem Wraith. The models are supposed to be lords ie the Khorne one and the jump pack one, yet everyone I know or has been on forums said they would use them as Aspiring Champs. Something wrong there dont ya think? The only one I would use as alord would be the new termie boss.

afraid not, some of it has to do with sculpts (Khorne geezer, Raptor guy) and the spawns are generally because they just look silly, if it ran upto me in battle I might die by a fit of giggles and thats it.

It's part of the way Chaos works. Some overpowering aspect of chaos desires spikes on everything, and chaotic reality sycophantically obeys.
