40K Rumors: Chaos Rumor Dump 2!

Rumor Stew! Mmmmmm.


Tastey Taste over at BoK has some sweet Chaos rumors! Also, Mr. Taste, who relaly does know what he’s talking about, has debunked the rumored release list that hit a few days back with all the crazy stuff on it. We didn’t think it was real either, but only time will tell.

Thanks for waiting everyone.

If you missed my first drop here is a link to take you back a few weeks.


First off, I want to say that it just doesn’t make any sense for GW to release the new Starter Set with models that doesn’t have a codex, so we have to assume that CSM codex will be out before the starter set. The only way they don’t  (would be a big slap in the face) would be they add a mini update like Daemons and still put off the CSM codex release.

Anyway on to more rumors/leaks.

Remember I might just repeat other rumors floating around and debunk others.

    Lucius’s attack profile is pretty cool, though I’m not buying it at AP 2.

      That does seems a bit much considering how rare AP2 is these days, but he is a special character. We’ll see.

      Huron looks like he still won’t see any game time! Haha, too bad. Random powers are not that fun unless every option is a good one.

        Hence the failure of Warlord powers.

          Yeah, I have to agree with you there. I saw a LOT of games won at the Golden Throne due to a beneficial Warlord Trait.

    Rejoice! Daemon Weapons are now amazing! No more If you have the awesome sword of darkness and chump a 1 you can’t attack!

      Yeah, that is definitely cool! I think this will cement Abby as the king of combat. I think it will make him even more powerful than Draigo.

        Until he kills somebody in a challenge, then turns in to a spawn! lol.

        • mercutioh August 12, 2012 6:00 pm #

          then they get shot in the face by 16 autocannons from my Chosen Troops.

          Hahaha, right?! That would be so tragic/funny.

    I can’t wait to hear the profile for sonic blasters. They used to be asssault 3, and were overcosted. Now that they’re salvo, and you can’t assault after firing them at all, it is going to need pretty impressive range/shots to be worth the points.

      I agree, I think they are going to be awesome!

    “Dragon: 170pts AV 12/12/10 Can Vector Strike as a MC, Has Str 8 Heavy 4 guns”

    He says “guns” think there are two of them? Any thoughts on the Dragon in general?

      It sounds like a butcher cannon is what he has (FW weapon) which has the same profile. Maybe his is twin linked? Maybe it’s something new.

      I think the model sounds silly (Frankie loves it) but it’s roll sounds pretty boss.
