It’s a reasonable expectation, I think, to lose options. Maybe more likely than not? Unless they come out with a chaos weapons upgrade kit, but that seems unlikely.

I will say the Blightlord terminator box only has 3 swords and 3 Axes but they didn't limit that to only 3/5. So chain axe as the base with combi bolter I would expect to be allowed on every model. It's the special combi weapons and other weapons that might get silly restrictions.

That's the stupid part- they restricted guns but not CCWs. So it's not even being limited to the kit- it's 50% limited to the kit

I don't see why though, it can force you to buy the HH tartaros or cata's instead for CSM since there is no difference in the armour rules anymore. Those two kits cost more than the CSM termi kit and look way better IMO. CSM isn't the budget faction for collecting IMO and thats a good thing.

I don’t think they’d mind selling those extra kits, but wouldn’t intentionally write rules to take separate kits into account. Just doesn’t seem to be their M.O..

I still don't like the implications, that would leave SW WG termi's untouched because they are very similar versatility wise to ours at the moment. Honestly, better for the game to have nids, eldar, tau out before more MEQ.

Yeah even if we have a codex for a month before 10th it would be nice to not just get copied and pasted over from a prior edition (or within the same edition) again.

On the bright side, AL and WB will have probably the most thematic armies with mortals in the CSM dex. Still seems a bit of a waste to not have lost and the dammed in a separate faction codex.

Loadouts are a tricky beast. I've definitely held off building a lot of kits I have piled up because I'm worried about what will happen in our book.

If the rumoured releases pan out, it's definitely looking like a dream come true for my Word Bearers. wub.gif

 

Re: LATD, it's always possible that this is just "laying the groundwork" and they plan to break them out into the own army eventually, but I will say that I was surprised to see so many non-marine releases in the 2022 CSM wave. Not a bad thing, mind, just surprised.

We'll see how it pans out. I'm using this time before our codex drops to build and paint all my piles of shame. :)

Same here!  I even decided to revive my long-dormant painting thread.  Just need to get it moved into the AL subforum...

Can we reasonably hope that Haarken Worldclaimer will be given decent rules in the 9e codex? Shame to have such a cool model have such lackluster rules.

He won't be in the codex, you'll have to wait for the Black Legion supplement.

 

 

 

 

 

...I'm kidding, I have no insider knowledge of the Chaos release plan.  But if any Traitor Legion gets its own stand-alone supplement (assuming WE & EC are getting stand-alone codices), it'd probably be the Black Legion.

Haarken needs some love. Lucius too, he is the only chaos lord I know that doesn't even get 4++ haha. Hopefully the book corrects alot of the shortfalls.
