The word "Supplement" pretty clearly excludes it being in a codex, no?

Not necessarily, they use the terms interchangeably from time to time, and using supplement here rather than codex might just be a way of avoiding a codex announcement

Blood Angels etc are classed as "Codex Supplements". Might be a Codex Supplement: Legions of Be'Lakor.

Highly unlikely

The name was plucked from thin air, although seeing as AoS just got exactly that, something similar for 40k might not be too far off the mark.

Only if you choose to ignore that Codexes literally have the phrase "A Supplement for Warhammer 40,000" printed on the back of them.

All I know, is that I may be tempted to put a little display Army together with him as the centerpiece.

I don't play anymore (hate what they have done with templated unit load outs + Covid lock downs being well...yeah) but a few units and this guy in a case?

What's one more CSM army?

I see alot of people thinking he is going to mesh with chaos space marines. In 8th he was in the chaos daemons codex. Is this wishful thinking or has there been info to suggest otherwise?

@Putrid Choir-  TBH I think we're reaching for something ..simply because he's a cool model and we'd like to have an excuse to buy him to put with our Chaos marines... sweat.gif 

cause if he's demons only ...well that means some of us have to go buy a whole load of deamon models...laugh.png  (which isnt a bad thing really)

All good, we all want some noise marine and bezerker love! I hope Be'lakor has all 4 marks instead of none. He's model of the year material for sure.

Yes, it would be great if he went the Abaddon route with marks... or at least didn’t break mono god detachment bonuses!

Wishful thinking, mainly. Although, if he's a LoW then he would be pretty easy to add to any CHAOS army.

This model may finally push me to the mixed God Daemon army I've been wanting to do for ages but couldn't decide on what was appropriate to lead it with.

 

I like to keep stuff reasonably fluff appropriate so I just couldn't really reconcile the idea of a Bloodthirster leading Slaanesh units or any other of the opposed combos.

Be'lakor datasheet leak!

There's a mistake here, as the GW article showed the piercing strike as being at +4S and this sheet shows it as being +2S.

The model just looks incredible. I just can't figure out what it will... fit in with armywise.

Awesome model with hopefully awesome rules as well
Hope GW gives him some rule that prevents him ever being fielded in the same army as the daemon primarchs to stop annoying soup abusers and since doesn't make sense fluff wise to ever work alongside the major champions of the gods

I have a feeling he will be daemons only and not available to CSMs which will make sense

Glad to see the big guys suffering less from bad damage charts, in recently rules. E.g. new KoS has 6/5/4 attacks, Morty has 7/6/5. Feel much more comfortable than downgrading to only 1 or 2 attacks.

I've been staring at the 360° image for a while now. Such a great model!

 

Interestingly, GW noted that there were some errors in the construction booklet and so have the corrected version up for download:

Wishful thinking, mainly. Although, if he's a LoW then he would be pretty easy to add to any CHAOS army.

 

 

It is mostly wishful thinking, I agree... But... In the Book of Rust, while Typhus and the majority of the invasion force focus on the Obolis Subsector, the send a splinter fleet into the Lirac Subsector to prevent House Raven from coming to the aid of the Imperial forces under siege.

 

But the splinter fleet betrays Typhus because they are busy with their own goals... Mysterious rituals of their own. I suspect those rituals will awaken Be'Lakor in Charadon Act 2, which expand on the action in the Lirac subsector.

 

And if CSM woke him, he's likely to find a home in their dex.

 

I know, pure conjecture. But it does fit, right?

 

Time will tell.

If he's a lord of war/supreme commander he goes in his own detachment so can ally in easily.

What’s with instruction errors necessitating addendums two releases in a row? Good on them for providing rapid and honest fixes, but QA suffering or what?
