The most recent big changes has been the addition of combat doctrines for armies that are "pure". Marines got a new codex and received them in addition to buffed and modified chapter traits. The other more recent army release received the same. Sisters of battle. They have there respective Orders in addition, you get a bonus for having a "pure" army.
It is assumed the chaos codex was printed before this new trend. However, neither the legion traits changed nor was there any kind of "pure" bonus in the psychic awakening book "faith and fury". Did chaos miss the boat again? Many chaos fans wondered what was going on. But then both the blood angels and dark angels received the same treatment. Thousand sons did not. We got some nifty stuff in the same level as the faith and fury chaos legions, but our trait remanded the same and there is no bonus for a "pure" list. I am starting to think that this is GW's plan. To reward imperial armies for being "pure" and letting chaos continue to soup as they please due to not having a "pure" option(so far). What do you guys thing? Did we miss the boat again? Is this forever going to be a trend? Is it because it's not a new codex, and its just a suppliment? If that is the case, why did blood and dark angels get the "pure" bonus?
Or is it a simple case of...YAY imperium, screw chaos and xenos. I kid, I kid...kinda.
On a tactics side note, magnus might be more viable. With all these redeployment shenanigans, there are a lot more distractions to take firepower away from big red.
