Chaos scan

Post  System Commander on Tue Oct 02, 2012 2:44 pm

Got ahold of a scan of the chaos book. I dont want to post up a link here... because then traffic will go nuts.. But if you cant find the link.. I can pm it to you.

You can find it in faiet 212's big chaos rumour post in the cooments waaaaaaay at the bottom.

Im am completly underwhelmed. There are a couple neat little changes.. The few new units and thats about it.

Forgefiend is 175.. Yikes. Dragon is 170 flat.. Nuthin extra.

Most everything is the same. Im eager to try it and happy to have a new booj.. I would of loved a bit more of a shake up though. Like tim mentioned.. Warp talons are the dud of the whole book. 160 for 5 guys. Space marine stats.. 2 attacjs with lightening claws.. But their daemons. You can give them a mark but no icon. Their only special rule is whwn they deep strike in units within 6" are blinded.. Wow. Garbage! If theres a trick to using them or im missing something. I need to know.

Nothing to prevent scatter on deep strikes either.. At least that i could find. Theres a baby chaos armoury with a couple knick knacks and cool weapons.. But nothing remarkable.

Chosen and regular marines look really good. You can make a unit of chosen like beeseekers (furious charge, rage, reroll charge distance) with one more attack and one less ws for a good price. Plus.. They have their.bolters.and can take up to 5special weapons or cc weapons. Of course you have to taken abbaddon to get chosen as troops but they look good.

Chaos icons dont act as homing beacons. replaced by +1 to combat resolution... because that has an effect on every game.

Warp talons would be... usable? if they teleported in off an icon or beacon. you could concievably run up with your land raider get in close , and then drop the Blind bomb on someone before you charge them... and the Warp talons could watch!

Ive been following rumours on the new forgeworld heresy betrayal release.. And the units/rules sound way way better than the new chaos ones.

4-5 special characters for each legion. Terminators with unique and special rules.. For each legion. For examole.. The death guard elite terms each have hand flamers that use a corrosive acid.. And they carry massive power scythes. How cool is that..

But. We did get a warpsmith.. Who doesnt really do anything. Damn.. Why couldnt he bave at least added a heavy slt.. Or open up helbrutes for trooos. Something. Hes expensve and.. Underwhelming.

Darn chaos book.. *shakes fist*

Ill have to play a few games and see how the boon table works
. Cant see it olaying a huge huge impact until that odd game you get a daemon prince pop out for free and irritate yiur opponent.

Im waiting foe the first game my lord charges.. Kills a champ and turns himself into a spawn.. Thatll be awesome.

see. look at that, your already a better writer than Phil Kelly. HQ is bloated. HS is bloated. why not have a HS choice swap to troops in exchange for taking said underwhelming HQ choice?

Eek. Just realized how bad my typing is on my phone. The forum doesnt respond nicely with my phone .. But damn.. I have to be more careful. That was painful to read in quotes.

Well.. Damn forum. On my phone i cant turn it sideways to type on the big keyboard. Plus, when i get to the end of a line i cant physically move the cursorso i cant make corrections easy.. Or even read alot of what i type.

They have a mobile version in test mode still.. For like a year now.

This is on a samsung android phone. Anyone else have that problem? Its a bitch to deal with sometimes andid love to fix it if possible.
