    Chaos Codex Rumors

    Well, the last thread was locked into submission after devolving into wish-listing and other related madness, so here's some actual info from Faeit 212:

    Hey Natfka, great job. Also CSM codexes is just being distributed to warehouses worldwide now. I saw a new sculpt for Kharn. Or im pretty certain its him. Looks very cool. Also the Chaos Dragon thing is pretty nasty at other flyers. But im sure you'll see soon enough.
    From the comments, there's a few confirmations of Chaos Codexes arriving in warehouses, plus this bit of information:

    Release date – 1st September (7 weeks he said) and it is a hard back like the 8e WFB Army Books.There is an Eye of the Gods esque table (Warriors of Chaos players will know what I am talking about) that you get to roll on whenever a character kills another character in a challenge, or a Walker or Monstrous Creature. There is a multitude of gifts (and curses) that your Characters can acquire which range from +1 Save, +1 Toughness, or becoming either a Spawn or a Daemon Prince!!!Chaos Cultists are definetely in (but we all kinda know that already), as is the ‘Dragon’ – think Necron Night Scythe with the main chassis been replaced by a massive mechanical dragon head with segmented wings sweeping forward and around from it. On top of those there are also:

    Dark Apostles – evil Chaplains basically
    Warp Smiths – evil Techmarine that can curse vehicles and degrade terrain.
    A new Daemon Engine – half way between a Dreadnought and a Defiler.
    Speaking of Defilers as they are Daemons they have a 5+ Inv save.
    ‘Cult’ units are all Elites and are unlocked to Troops by appropriate HQ choices, but there are no Cult Terminators which makes me sad.
    Obliterators are exclusively for shooting – so no powerfists. BUT there is a new unit which is basically a close combat Obliterator.
    There are 2 types of Raptors now; regular CSM with Jump Packs, and then some kind of Possessed Daemonic Raptors that all come with Lightning Claws!
    Possessed are meant to be amazing, and take a lot of benefits from the Eye of the Gods esque table.
    There are NO Daemons in the Codex because that is what Allies are for.

    That is all I can remember for now. Sorry I am VERY tired. But regardless I have to say I am excited to see the Codex in the flesh and get cracking on some themed lists with Allied Daemons or Guard (for a proper Lost and the Damned army).
    If the September release is true, that'd explain why we haven't heard a thing about this book yet, despite the rumored August release date hovering over our collective noggins. Would love to see it earlier, but one month isn't too long a wait...

    Update: I've since found that the latter rumors came from Skuczzlebumm! Credit where credit's due.
