You know with the rumors of 2018 first priority being 40k khorne (and "maybe" some AoS khorne.) and quite some Angron is next rumors, I realise it might not necessarily mean World eaters get a codex. or world eaters would have been mentioned by them. It doesnt sound like a huge release.. and would fall in line with the timing of codex chaos daemons.
What if Angron is actually released as part of the chaos daemons army ? (they always said the primarches dont neccesarily return as part of their original army.) along with a handful of other 40k khorne elements related to chaos daemons, instead of chaos space marines. (though it would be a perfect wave for berzerkers too, their rules already exist anyway and Id assume even if part of chaos daemons book, angron would keep their keyword.)
Fluffwise it wouldnt be far-fetched either, as I think he is mentioned more as hanging out with Bloodthirsters than space marine elements.
Ofcourse there is the New miniatures = new cover art assumption.
But this is based on 2 cases really, one of wich didnt have old cover art (deathguard) and the other is the brand new posterboys.
based on :
I could see that happening. Although, I did read about how Angron gathered as many World Eaters as he could and slaughtered quite a swathe of systems before getting brought down during one of his escapes into realspace. I don't suppose that's a topic of any novel, is it? Maybe at least one of the Armageddon campaigns? How long ago was that part of the story, in an Imperial Armour book maybe? I know I've seen his rules out there somewhere but I have a feeling it was in a White Dwarf.
Wonder if some of the other Daemon engines from CSM and DG get rolled into the daemons codex (maybe it could be why they are holding the Blight hauler back)
That could be it... technically anything from, say, the Death Guard codex that has the "Daemon" rule should be able to be taken in a Daemon army. So Plagueburst Crawlers and Bloat Drones should be fair game along with just about anything from the FW Index.
Speaking of Index... doesn't each God have specific traits in the Chaos Index? I think they do, like Nurgle gets Disgustingly Resilient, etc.
Yeah, they do. Khorne gets +1A and +1S when charging/they get charged or perform a heroic intervention.
Based on the Blades of Khorne book from the alternate GW game that shall not be mentioned, some of the legions of Khorne have subtle variations based on some unique and glorious aspect which may or may not extend far beyond "these guys have black arms and legs and carry brass hellblades."
I agree with some of the opinions here so far in that I'm not really sure that they need to put in special snowflake "chapter" rules so much as they need to buff the army as a whole and provide some killer stratagems. Continuing with Khorne, +1A and +1S are awesome, but summoning and footslogging don't seem to be doing the trick. A lot of it is a codex versus index issue, but losing universal deep strike changes the way the army works in a weird way. Maybe I'm just not getting it yet. I haven't really used them much, so I'll give them more of a fair shake and see how they play out. I miss my D-thirster and friends, and I've wanted to buy Skarbrand for a long time, so maybe I'll give that a shot.
