Hahaha they gave us chosen in a starter set .... oh oops.
Jokes aside I'm glad to see what looks to be a hades AC in havocs. I did have hopes that GW would have done something more with ectoplasma weapons in a similar way they did with Grav for SM.
Right now most of the CSM range is really old and the options have not changed. Getting new options in these units is key to incentivizing customers to buy new kits.
I don't follow the rule of cool unless it is something that is interesting like a character. I'm in 40k for the lore and the game and don't focus on 40k as a collectable range to clutter shelves.
I started playing CSM in 4th doing a Death Guard army as they were challenging and fun but were one of the weaker armies inside that codex. I had a fully painted army with a wide range of units by the end of 5th. I had gotten to the point that there really was not much to add or change to my army as I had most all options that I personally would ever play with. The 8th ed Death Guard release did something wonderful providing new option in those kits that I never had before. This incentivizing me to go buy almost a full new army. I love my old DG and like their look a lot better than the stomach mouth goofiness of the new ones but the options and change in game play is wonderful.
I hope GW can add more life into the refreshing of the kits vs a simple visual update.
