40K News: New Chaos Pictures! Godzira is coming!!!

Check them out! Seriously looks like a Godzilla movie gone crazy!

The Helldrake (Dragon) looks cooler than I thought it would in that picture. Frankie likes it, but I am going to reserve judgement until we see it in real life. The little bugger may yet grow on me! The Maulerfied is pretty boss, and the Warpsmith too, but the Forgefiend–at least in the picture–leaves a little to be desired, IMO. Maybe in real life it would look a lot cooler. Maybe like the Dreadknight, I will come to like it.

The Warp Talons are awesome looking but the rules that I’ve seen so far leave me thinking that they won’t see much play time (much like Vanguards) but I could be wrong for sure.

Which are your favorites?

Here’s some rules info via Naftka

via Faeit 212 (a Must Remain Anonymous Source)

The ramming land raider is dropped.

The forgefiend is a CC demon engine, and there’s a variant that’s a a shooty variant with 2 butcher cannons and can take a heavy flamer and some other options.

One is dedicated CC, one is dedicated range, hellbrute is kind of half and half.

the Forgefiend is one codex entry you can make cc or shooty and it’s heavy support.

The hellbrute is elite.

    My wallet won’t be hurting thats for sure! I am really let down with the kids toy feel they all have, but I have a very dark imagination and when I picture the marriage between raw meta hate and a screaming tormented demon from hell I see something a bit more gruesome and intimidating. They really don’t look scary for some reason. I think a huge problem is they look very static. I was impressed with the directions they have gone with most of their kits lately but here I feel they missed. When I look at the Hellbrute of the Tervigon I see a very dynamic and menacing creature. When I see these I see lifeless statues that resemble bad 80’s dinorobots. Just my 2 cents, I am still very excited and grateful that I’m getting a new codex, honestly I am grateful I will be saving money for once during a chaos release haha.

      You hit the nail on the head. They look like Dinobots, or Godzilla monsters. I can just picture that Helldrake flying through the air like Mothra, with wings barely moving! Haha.

      Who knows though, maybe in real life they will look cooler. I hope so!

      And don’t forget, we’re doing a 25% off Chaos dex release special! If you or anyone you know wants the dex, if they preorder with us, their entire order is 25% off!

    Umm. You guys don’t want to mock Dinobots….Grimlock could get angry.

    And quit hating on the PimpDrake. Coming soon to an Apoc Game near you in a very sexy Purple and Gold Slaaneshi paint job(leopard skin Fedora yet to be determined.)

    That dragon looks way to brittle the way the wings are….

    Maulerfiend looks like Todd Mcfarlene of Spawn designed it so props, love how the massive body transitions into tiny legs, definitely hope this isnt Cav/Beast model design wise it should be infantry or I wont buy it for my army just because thats stupid. If Cav/ Beast the design team shouldve put this monster on wheels like in the movie DOOM.

    The Warp Claws: even if theyre complete garbage in game the models are awesome! I hope to buy a squad, if for noting but to paint for my DOA army (Needs better pic but diggin the paint job)

    The warp smith….Slaanesh has plans for you! I like the robot arms, but he needs to strike some poses.

    Then theres the Forgefiend….. Sorry GW that looks like a lazy version of PP Everblight Typhon. I know chaos is supposed to look chaotic. Without a side view this looks like Matt Ward designed it. Im hoping more is released that shows what the warp has done to CSM,

    Just my .02
