    Default Chaos Rumor Roundup

    Time to start up the official Chaos Marines Rumormill...

    via Nostromodamus on 12-27-2014

    One project that is more on the horizon is plastic Chaos Cult Troops. I can say that the Plague Marines are more bulky and tailored for the new bases. Standard 5 man squads per box with all weapon options and nice bits to spruce up the Champions.

    2015 will be the year of supplements and campaigns. Dark angels will almost certainly feature in the next campaign which i heard quite possibly is called DarkStorm
    ~The opponents to the Dark Angels are said to be Crimson Slaughter

    Regarding Codex Chaos Space Marines
    -No Cult Marines in the Codex
    -Few Rule changes
    -Dataslates for Cult Marines, Terminators, Chosen ect. in White Dwarf
    -One Chaos God per Issue (each with their own dataslates for Berzerker Termis, Plague Termis ect.)
    via Steve the Warboss 1-9-2015

    Further clarifications for CSM Cult Marines
    -No own Profiles/Choices for Cult Marines in the Codex
    -Cult Marines are "upgrades" for the most of the CSM Units
    via Captain Citadel 1-19-2015

    The Plastic Bloodthirster is real.

    Kit makes three models a normal bloodthirster with whip and Axe of Khorne, one wielding a monstrous two-handed axe, third has a doubleheaded axe and super long chain flail. The wings are really big - the model is almost as big as Nagash, and is extra tall. It is sculpted on top of a flickering flame. There are three different heads with different types of horns and helmets. Large armoured hooves, thigh straps, regular upper body strapps and gladiator kindof armour. Super muscular, like a super ripped world's strongest man mixed with a Khorne daemon.

    It looks like Chaos is coming in March after all:

    -New Khorne Berzerker Box
    -Khorne Berzerker on Jugger Box
    -Chaos Lord of Khorne Clam Pack
    3-17-2015
    Look for the following kits redone in plastic throughout this year:

    Berzerkers (10 man kit)

    Plague Marines (10 man kit)

    Rubric Marines (10 man kit)

    These are completely redone multipose plastic kits. Earlier rumors have placed two of these already - so that adds to the corroborating rumormongers out there. Berzerkers were mentioned last month as being tied into the 40K Khorne release that seems to be right atop us. Rubrics have been mentioned as being released alongside the redone Lord of Change in a Tzeentch wave that is part of the Autumn campaign (along the lines of Stormclaw / Shield of Baal).
    It's been a looooong time since any CSM rumors showed up!

    Today's your lucky day:

    So the manager at my local GW got back from Nottingham a while ago. And couldn't help but tell me theres talk of a new chaos codex coming this year at the HQ. I've known this guy for years. I've never been brought into the back of the shop and had him tell me. Then he mentioned horus heresy stuff in October apparently. I've scanned through the internet and found nothing on either. Although he seems like he really wants me to.expect something. I'll ask him for more info tomorrow. Not too excited. But he isnt a liar. And heck, he's coming to me about this as I'm essentially tge biggest chaos fanboy at tge shop.

    I'll edit this post if some new info comes up. He said something about tau later in the year but I was too busy squabbling mindlessly about what could be changed. OH and apparently we are going to.be seeing a new deamon engine.. Joy.

    ...He told me to keep £35 handy around the end of this month to the start of September.
    via B&C's TheHairySorcerer20 9-2-2015

    we are getting a chaos marine dex soon.. Very soon indeed. AND we may or may not be getting a sorcerer conclave formation Nothing better than throwing out 3 powers a turn at +1 strength for every sorcerer in the formation.. *Cough*

    ... It's coming though. ITS FINALLY COMING!!
    and...

    via B&C's SlaveToDarkness 9-2-2015

    Aahhhhh after I have done a bit of digging with a few people I have found out a few things...

    Some I cant say until I hear back from someone else (I dont want to look like a complete muppet) but I can say one thing, we ARE getting a dex, but not sure if its gonna be before or after Tau at the moment. But its done, not heard anything about new minis though (but then again I didnt ask). The person I am waiting to hear back from I trust 100% and its not the local GW manager.

    Just be patient guys, and if the other things I am waiting on turn out to be legit then you get to be happy smug *******s

    ...

    Don't mind saying who my source is, I have a cousin who is an ex GW sculptor who still talks to people at the design studio, I'm not naming names though as I don't wanna cause any grief for people involved, and I'm not gonna push for info on every race, I only asked about Chaos because that's all I am interested in, couldn't care less about anything else tongue.png

    If one of the things I am waiting to hear back on turns out to be true then I will be happy, though it's something I have hinted at a few times now and again for a few months now, though it was something that GW were thinking of doing, if they are then I will spill the beans.

    Chaos Space Marines are currently being worked on. The models are not even finalized, but a book is being created, and I am assuming that it is a codex. The book is not coming for at least a year, the details are still being changed frequently, both the models dimensions and specific details.

    Three interesting sightings
    1. A field artillery battery manned by Chaos Space Marines, with tracks and barrels that looked like a quad mortar. Their armor was different , as it had plates on the front that looked similar to that of a Warpsmith. The helmets looked like Mk III

    2. Chaos Sorcerer with staves that looked Chaos-y, one that was wearing a robe. None of the sorcerers had horns or spikes sticking out where I would have expected to see them. A group of them casting a psychic power with a Nova Blast effect.

    3. New Predator Tank weapons that are not autocannons or lascannons. At least 2 new cannons being worked on, both are boxy with lights down the side, but no clues to what they do.

    I saw no legion markings. All armor was a greasy metallic gray, or the subjects were illuminated in a reddish glow. Lights from the eyes of helmets are red or green.

    There were no models of cult troops, heretics, or other infantry

    There was also something referred to as a Wyrm with large armor plates reminiscent of a Forgefiend. No other details

    Can this go ahead and be true already? Because I'm not buying anything CSM unitl it looks as good as the recent releases. I've been waiting for new cult troops and basic CSM for like 2 years now.

    I hope it isn't really another Marine vs Chaos Marine thing.
    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    Are they not just thinking of Dark Vengeance?

    Have some CSM players lernt their lesson and not get to excited this time? Excitement leads to disappointment.
    What is the most important rule? That we should do whatever the hell we want, but preferably in the best interests of Games workshop when possible? :P Ill go with that

    Plastic Plague Marines, Thousand Sons, New Zerkers and Noise Marines would sell like no tomorrow. It's a shame GW don't seem to cotton on to this.

    Eww...

    I really hope they make them better somehow to make up for moving them, or that just feels wrong to me. Not that they aren't good, but Cult marines are pretty standard for Chaos, and spreading them out like that is kind of annoying
