The inevitable Pre-chaos moan

Damn if i'm not already fed up with the pre-chaos moan. Lash is broken...yet can be stopped by a free piece of wargear librarians have and other races can put the dampener on it too i.e. tyranids and eldar.
All armies can have 9 oblits, all armies can mix troops, they can have vindicators etc....

Then theres the other camp....you need 10 man squads to take heavy weapons, the wargear options are limited, daemons are generic.

Can't people wait till a few games have been played Before they start the codex bashing??

MMMM Come to me my Chirdren of sensual pleasures.

Yep from what I have seen and heard the ranks of Fulgrims followers will soon swell to epic proportions.

As to the moaning: it always happens before the release of a book and goes away after a couple of months. (I seen this every time since 1st Ed.) The only time it did not was the third Ed balls up when we got two Codex Chaos co the first one was rap with a capiltal C.
The whining is coming from a vocal bunch of unimaginative, stubborn veterans who just simply don't want to use it because it's new.
Every Edition, every Codex this happens ( although with the first CSM Codex in third edition it was valid.) Some people just don't like change.

Im surpirised you havn't found a quote of some poor Alpha Legion Player bemoaning the fate of cultist, I had 120 of the blighters so I feel a certian leeway is allowed if I want to whine.

That said, Im just Getting on with it and making do. What you have said Galahad is pretty much right and I agree with you.

Heres my Upbeat thoughts on the new dex ( I have posted a version of this in Hands on chaos codex.)

This dex heralds a time of the common trooper, with less conversion to do on DPs and such, Im seriously looking at converting each basic guy in the army.

Make your own special characters, take the stats of your favourite SC and make your own model for it. Weird and wonderful options but then 'oh he is Typhus really and the that big chainsaw is his Manreaper.'

I have to be positive, Im not going to throw away 20 odd years of gaming experiance and fond memories just because GW have made it harder to be original with selections from the codex.

So forward my twisted and corrupted companions in Chaos use your imaginations and we will march on to dominion over these pawns of the false emperor. :twisted:
See less See more
Don't forget the not-so twisted renegades
Their just corrupted. :twisted:
