The (Rat)Men of (Under)Talabheim! - A Painting Log
I think it's fine, but it would have been better if they'd done a sprue to make it a little more fantasy - some arcane engine stuff.
I'll be happy with it when WoC get Chaos dreadnoughts, terminators and plasma pistols until then it looks like a seriously lazy money making plow, if they had at least bothered to recut the spure with some fantasy options it wouldn't look as bad.
I voted for "Is a bad move".
I don't have an issue with deamon engines comming into fantasy but, they should have listed it as a Khorne entry.
(In line with the Juggers, the old deamon engines from Epic and the fluff from years gone bye.)
They should also have released a bits pack to help make the thing a bit more fantasy and a bit less Space Marine ceramite armour plate.
Without that it does, as logan054 said, look like a seriously lazy money making plow.
Just my two peneth worth.
(Having said all that, I'm going to contradict myself and say that the Nurgle version from Forge World looks like it might fit the fantasy setting a little better:-
Perhaps a different paint job on the standatd models armour would help?)

Rules-wise the soul grinder is a great addition to the daemons of chaos army. Anything that adds some variety to armies that lack variety is gold to me. Model wise I'm not yet sold I don't think. With some conversion the grinder could fit right in, but as it stands out of the box it definitely clashes with the fantasy setting. That being said, fluff from the good ol' liber chaotica justifies this future tech as it has the protagonist receive glimpses of the future (apparently it was August 2012 he saw!) which had daemon engines greater then anything nuln could produce in said visions. Guess I'm torn, can't be too picky though because 2/3 parts aren't bad at all.
I said bad but I'm not really phased. I guess it's just a little disappointing that GW didn't come up with something a bit different for fantasy - which they probably will when the hard cover army book comes out.
