Question.

Abaddon returns, can't take Vigilus as it'd cause too many issues.

How's the big bad supposed to win and yet lose as he has too?..

Any thoughts?


Abaddon goes on to overthrow Terra. Now Chaos Space Marines are defending the title.
"Imperium" armies switch to guerilla tactics. Demons attack Terra because Abaddon never picked a god and so they are all trying to overthrow him.
Xenos as usual.
Status Quo maintained.

Those are mine.

Fall of Vigilus perfectly setups the return of another primarch or something, as the imperium will be supremely censored.gif.


Imagine the stories told of the Imperium Nihilus where everything is the "wild west", lawless and anarchic. I'd totally be down to see that.

However, we're kind of getting off topic - let's bring it back to the Chaos update, eh? msn-wink.gif

It's beautiful, that's what it is. I was really hoping that Primaris get such kind of unit but I'm just as happy for CSM to get it. My body is SO ready for some brrrrrrrrrrrrt!

So let's suppose that this Sunday Abaddon is announced for preorder. Will he come alone, with Vigilus 2, or with some more CSM? I'm thinking we'll see some other preview before the end of the week, but the bulk of it will be shown at GAMA starting next Monday and after it. Of course, this is all assuming Abaddon will follow Shadowspear closely, but even if we have to wait some more, I still see GAMA as prime CSM reveal territory. AdeptiCon would be too far.

Well we do already know about regular Chaos Marines. What else do we actually need? Raptors and Warp Talons already are rather new. Chosen I guess?

I've seen people asking for possessed, and a few of the daemon engines like the defiler are looking real old these days

Chosen and a proper kit for Cultists would be nice, but I'm not hopeful for those. Bikers and the Defiler are the oldest ones left, and I sure would love a new kit for Possessed that matches the Greater Possessed, but that's on the same camp as Chosen for me. And while a Venomcrawler kit is a given, I sure hope they don't pull a Dark Vengeance with the Obliterators.

 

And the tanks ain't going anywhere.

I really want new Possessed simply because they'll look stupid alongside the new models. Would much prefer a Possessed kit to Chosen in fact, they are far more visually distinct.

 

Anyway, this is all marvelous, and heralds a dark new era for my wallet. Can't wait to see the back of that abhorrent old Dark Apostle model too.

Indeed so, mine cowers in fear already. I'm going to catalog anything I can sell from ANY of my other hobbies to try and offset the absolute destruction that is incoming.

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.

Beacuase in all this chaos hype everyone seems to have completely forgotten that genestealer cult uprisings are the herald for something alot scarier.

New options sure helps, but I can tell you, they could add ZERO new options, and I would still buy multiple of any new CSM kit from this list.

 

Bikes

Havocs

CSM Troops

Berzerkers

 

The old range has been OLD for decades, LITERAL DECADES. 

 

These updates could be injected straight into my veins for all its doing to get me interested in the hobby side again. :D

Funnily enough, after being disappointed with the treatment of Chosen since Dark Vengeance and being very vocal about it, I wholeheartedly agree with this. With the new CSM, Havocs, and other kits, it'll be extremely easy to kitbash some Chosen. Add new Greater-Possessed-style bits from a new kit into the mix and they'll fit right in with the DV Chosen.
