    End Times: Archaon

    Since I know quite a few people don't visit the other rumour forums, Darnok posted this delicious titbit in the CSM thread:

    "I have waited for somebody else to bring it the following up. It is an example for "new users" sometimes bringing in exactly the right news. The original source for this is Dakka²:

    It is a one-week release with no new miniatures released for this new codex as such (but Zerkers, in all their old miniatures-glory, are actually in the Codex, no WD spin-offs).

    The main purpose of this khorne codex is to ride in the slipstream of End Times 5, which will be released earlier in march, with the "headline"-release of the new Bloodthirster (builds 3 variants).


    There is no "main" Codex CSM in 2015. There are no nurgle, tzeentch, etc. equivalents to this khorne one planned (yet), as it's mostly an End Times add-on to make the new Bloodthirster with all its variants work in 40K.
    As far as I'm informed, this is 100% correct. New Bloodthirster, yeah! "
    Also we seem to have a new unit coming in!

    New info from Faeit 212. Apply with caution as always, but rumours are rumours.

    I wanted to restate that Archaon is on his steed on the cover of book 2, but its not a new model. There are other characters I have seen briefly, like
    -Grimgor, Incarnate of Beasts. The model shown is the same as the current model.
    -Balthasar, Incarnate of Metal. Same model again as is current

    New models I have seen, include a kit that makes three bloodthirster models. These are in the book and are different Monster (characters). They range from 400-550pts.

    Taken from memory they are
    -Headmen of Khorne with Wrathaxe and Bloodflail standing on flames leaping into the air
    -Unfettered Fury with Axe and Whip standing on the ground
    -Reaver of the Bloody Path with two handed great axe standing leaping high on flames


    Also two new units with new models
    -Skullreapers: The Chosen of Khorne with 2 handed swords and other weapons
    -Wrathmongers: The Bringers of the Bloodstorm with chain like flails
    There's stuff popping up on BOLS

    Kit makes three models a normal bloodthirster with whip and Axe of Khorne, one wielding a monstrous two-handed axe, third has a doubleheaded axe and super long chain flail. The wings are really big - the model is almost as big as Nagash, and is extra tall. It is sculpted on top of a flickering flame. There are three different heads with different types of horns and helmets. Large armoured hooves, thigh straps, regular upper body strapps and gladiator kindof armour. Super muscular, like a super ripped world's strongest man mixed with a Khorne daemon.
    And the same guy on Spikey Bits

    It will be released sometime in March. Book one has an artist's rendering of Archaon weilding the Kingslayer on the cover and Book two's cover is a very nice picture of the current model of Archaon.

    The book concentrates on the forces of Khorne, however Orcs and Goblins finally make their appearance in End Times and Grimgor is featured heavily in this book (with rules).

    All eight of the Incarnates are revealed, including some BIG surprises on a Shakespearean level.

    I talked about the blood thirster recently, but there are more units coming too. Khorne will also be getting Skullreapers, and Wrathmongers.

    The Skullreapers look like the Khador Doomreavers with tall doublehanded halbreds, and the Wrathmongers resemble miniature humoid versions of the Lord of Skulls, but with leather armour.
    This is getting partial confirmation for one of our local rumour dudes:

    I am not sure if Skarbrand will dual kit with the bloodthirster, no one has told me this is happening just that there will be a bloodthirster model and Skarbrand will be coming at some time also.
