    So, Khorne Daemonkin, Wrath of Magnus, Death Guard; now all we need is a slaanesh-focused supplement and we’ve got em all.

      Ha ha yeah because GW is gonna do a Slaanesh release when they still haven’t, ten years running, managed to come up with a named greater demon.

        They could go with Kyriss, that’s the one that Sanguinius was ambushed by in the Signus system.

        Well, what a perfect time to do it if they finally come out with some new kits 😉 for them.

        Considering Noise Marines are beyond abysmal and the only thing worse than the Keeper of Souls rules is the model.

          Noise Marines are easily the best of the four cult units, and while they’re not top-tier competitive they actually hit pretty hard (especially as part of a Kakophoni.)

            Sorry, wasn’t specific with that – the models for them are god-awful unless you go with FW.

            They’re easily my favorite cult units on the board as far as rules go.

            Berserkers in some of the new formations can give them a run for their money, at least.

            Rubric Marines… Wow… Rubric Marines. I don’t want to say they’re the worst MEQ in the game, but…

            The real guitar marines were awesome (too bad GW is too serious for that silliness now).

            This upgrade pack abomination they’ve had for a while is terrible.

          Keeper of secrets would be a Godly model if it was Gargantuan instead.

          Gargantuan KoS with SOULSTEALER RELIC MMMMMM!

            It’d still be T6/5++, though, so it’d die pretty horribly to just like Scatter Lasers and stuff.

            Nah AP it would have ML3 telepathy! That’s a good chance at 2+ save in cover, or just being invisible. Pray for the run and charge warlord trait. Up to a 33″ charge turn 1 on a creature that WILL win at CC and heal back all it’s wounds. Comboe’d with a shriek then whatever it was aiming for would die. Biggest problem I ever had with them was making it to combat. They are all gravy once they get there.

    I just spent an absurd amount of money buying a few thousand points of Tzeentch daemons with all the new releases/rules. GW why do you have to do this to my wallet?

    The more I hear about Shadespire the more interested I’m getting, looks like a really interesting fast game, people who played it at Adepticon were very happy with it. And a nice way to drop new heroes into AoS without having to do an entire faction release.
