Well, I have never, in all my 30+ years of playing GW games, been particularly interested in 40K Chaos models.

 

I have always loved the fluff, and thought the WHFB/AoS models were great, but outside of Daemons, Chaos as a rule never appealed to me.

I know the models are very dated but tbh, even when new, I didn't like the CSM and Khorne Bezerkers. The closest GW got to getting me to like Chaos Space marines was the models in the Dark Vengeance set.

However, from what I have seen so far, these might be some of the best range refresh models GW have done.

The Havov we've seen and Abaddon are enough to pique my interest. Abaddon itself is an amazing mini, and i wish Guilliman had had similar options when he was released (multiple head variants and detachable cloak would improve the model 100%).

Now we’ve seen the model, I’m wondering how long it’ll be until we see a rules preview. Hopefully he’ll be getting a significant buff.

Could someone who's on Facebook request an interview with the model's designer for Warhammer TV? I'd love to see/hear what went into the design process.

Already done! I asked on the original Facebook thread and they said they'd see what they could do. No promises, obviously.

What helmet could possibly replace abaddons head? It’s not that I don’t like the sculpt it’s more a case of I know I couldn’t paint it as well as the rest of the model. I’m not the best painter but I’m confident in my ability to do a half decent job only for it to be ruined by my lack lustre skill in face painting.

You know abbadon would never fit that top knot in an helmet msn-wink.gif

 

Serisously though, there's 99.9% chance of new chaos terminators. I'd wait for those to come out before I looked at my options

A simple kitbash would result in the top knot poking out of a terminator helmet! Would look ridiculous but totally worth it for the shock value.

I think I prefer the idea of bald Abbadon with a top knot plume on his helmet to the idea that's actually his hair.

Is it the abaddon pre order article or will that come later? The original abaddon announcement article made reference to multiple chaos things being announced in the coming weeks.

We don’t know until 6. I’m expecting Abaddon though. Could be the AoS Khorne stuff to give a break between Shadowspear and Vigilus 2.

Fair shout on not this week. Give us time for the shadowspear dust to settle.

Don't forget there was a gap between speed freeks and the buggy release iirc.

Don't expect Abaddon next week. Assume AoS khorne.

As Reinhard pointed out, I’d wait a couple of weeks and see what comes in the new Chaos Terminator set (if there is such a thing). I really wanna see the sprues for the Abbadon model. I’m hoping there will be some compatibility with the aforementioned Terminator kit. Maybe the trophy racks will be interchangeable for example.

They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines so that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

Not just Abaddon and CSM squad, but the terrain piece, vigilus Book 2, AND new codex, with more on the way? holy cow GW is delivering (i'm not a Chaos player but it makes me happy to see them get what they've been owed for so long)

Holy cow I just realized what the double-edged blade from one of the stories is - the blackstone! His plan is to reverse polarity of blackstone deposits at Vigilus so it will ‘become that which it hates the most.’ (from yesterday story).

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

While Abaddon's arrival on Vigilus is imminent, please keep the discussion centered on the model. Discussion about the extended lore can be had in the appropriate area(s). Thank you.
