If you look at pictures of the new chaos lord on daemonic steed you will notice that he is on a scenic base in some of them. Example: The preview pictures in WD, the pictures of the spearhead and the pictures in the armybook. The spearheads building instructions also include this base.

However the model doesn't seem to actually come with this base? The base is missing from the pictures of the lords box: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat1380002&prodId=prod1550018

I have also opened two different spearheads and a lord box and neither of them had the base.

So does anybody know what happend with it?

I think perhaps the WD previews had the added base to advertise the product... whereas in reality there is no base...

dodgy, but probable...

The "I got the spearhead" thread has a bunch of posts on this, starting here. Apparently it was dropped at the last minute due to production "issues".

The base was not produced due to the cost of excess metal apparently.

Eh. I'm halfway through replicating it in plasticard anyways. Of course, mine looks much better. :p

That sounds like something worthy of a thread in the painting forum!
