Late to the conversation, but happy to finally be here! I was moving the first couple weeks of July, but I was stoked when TT announced Chaos Week. Noticed the Lodge Campaign, the beautiful new facilities featured, and heard about your plans to provide a space for community play. Huge +1 to the TT team, am happy to support such a cause. Looking forward to picking up some objective markers and TT dice to be used alongside my Disciples of Be’Lakor! (The torturous wait for the Daemon Codex is surely a test of my devotion to Chaos Undivided…)

Disagree entirely with terminators they are now total rubbish. as someone with 50 terminators 30 with combi meltas and 20 with combi plasma they are now unplayable.

Great review. I’m very happy for you heretics. Loyalists turn to be green with rule envy. I want T9 Landraiders and Lamecannons to be good again!

I honestly hate to be negative given how much enthusiasm you guys have but i’m very down on 40k in general and there are some specific things in this book which feel like more nails in the coffin. Gutted about the jump pack lord/sorcerer. Very confusing decision by GW. If their argument is that they don’t sell one anymore, then can someone please show me the exalted champion with combi-melta and power axe model that must surely exist. There’s some other stuff i’m not massively happy about. There being No such thing as an undivided daemon prince apparently, being one… Read more »

Beard reflects us all hahaha – I’m so hype! Our time is now! Word Bearers looking very very strong, Creations of Bile getting my long-shot hopes for World Eaters but looking very fun! Even sticking to pure World Eaters, I’m incredibly excited for the shake up in list building this new book brings – I’ve already built a daemon prince that can 1-shot a knight with average dice, and the -1 to wound relic on a unit of possessed looks dirty. Can also build a very hard to kill Disco Lord with Gorget, True Berzerker and an Apostle friend (1+/4++,… Read more »

Dam you beard…. I was going to stick with my blood angels and my cult until the next edition ….. however that intro means I’m now pulling the iron warriors back out and just crippled my bank account…..

Great review chaps. Glad to see the impression is generally positive – happy for chaos players. Shame about the jump pack models and indeed a bit inconsistent with the firstborn marines – wonder if they will be disappearing as options in marine codex 9.5? I am perplexed by the accursed weapons. Not because it’s necessarily a bad idea (and indeed power weapons in loyalist books may follow suit) but more because it varies between units. Havocs / raptors/ legionaries get varying access to the wargear list for their champions, terminators have power fists as normal and chosen just have everything… Read more »

The jump pack thing is a worrying trend for GW now taking away some options when it comes to characters. Ork book hit me with this your telling me my boss in mega armour can only have a big choppa but his lads he’s walking around with in their armour get to have a big killy klaw?

IM DA BOSS GIV ME DAT KLAW!

Preordered mine today, super excited after this video. 5 attacks on my Warp Talons!

Pretty disappointed my Night Lords jump pack Lord doesn’t exist anymore, who is making that call at GW? However, we have already decided to ignore the ridiculous new chapter approved rules on relics and warlords (like the rest of the world) so what’s one more house rule.

Looking forward to all the other CSM videos and articles

Regarding the jump pack nonsense, there is precedent for GW bowing to (polite) pressure from players about this sort of thing. See the Autarch wargear debacle when the Aeldari book landed.
I recommend emailing Warcom (community@gwplc.com) and or the 40k FAQ/feedback email address (40kfaq@gwplc.com). Hopefully if we make enough noise, we’ll be given back our jump packs. If we make LOTS of noise, they might even let us have matching sets of combi weapons on our terminators. 🙂

Just a quick point on the accursed weapons discussion, whilst I agree in general that is a good move to simplify the profiles, with the sample you mention of models with all lightning claws (e.g. a Tartaros Terminator unit), only one of five can take double accursed weapons, so you can’t run the other four with double weapons as before nor as WYSIWYG. A minor point maybe in grand scheme of things but as with jet packs, does make another tranche of units not able to be run without pre-discussion/marking.

Ok, I won’t even wait to look it all before commenting:
Chaos Lord Beard’s intro is one for the ages! Let the Galaxy burn!
[edit] Chaos names and strats sounds always so much as black metal/djent…. awesome.
