So with the new Chaos Codex on the way and it being heavily suggested its heading back towards focusing on the Legions.
I was curious just how many fellow Chaos players embraced the idea of the warband, either mixed up their Legion colours, made their own renegade force or used one of the schemes from the dex.
Im sure quite a few ditched their Chaos armies when Legions were no longer viable, but how many of you embraced the new direction and if so how.
Also how much info and background do you think the Renegades that dominate the current Codex will be given in the upcoming release.
I for one took the opportunity to try something different, sidelining my Alpha Legion and designing my own Tzeentch themed Warband, Led by a Thousand Sons Sorceror in his efforts to rebuild the Thousand Sons Legion in part by inductingand incorporating fallen and corrupted renegades and in part perfecting his science in gene seed replication in an effort to eliminate the inherent flaw in the gene seed make up.
Not a chaos player but i believe ditched is a bit of exaggeration.Repainted or perhaps added and replaced models would fit a bit better
Praise be to the Emperor!!
I restarted 40k after the last codex was published, and I did both Legion and warbands. My main force is Word Bearers, the 89th Host led by the Daemongogue Sargrael. I am currently building up four allied warbands, one for each god: the Flawless Host for Slaanesh, taken from the codex; the Scions of the Cyclops for Tzeentch, a derivative of the Thousand Sons; the Revelers for Nurgle, a corrupted Chaos form of the Lamenters loyalists; and the Order of Rage for Khorne, a former Crusade of Black Templars who were trapped aboard a space hulk for centuries and eventually corrupted by a Khornate Daemon Prince.
With my main force still being Death Guard, I actually painted up a Bleak Brotherhood squad as something of an Apoc add-on to include heavy weapons on CSM. With the rumors of separate Legion, and warband dexes, I think I'll continue with the Brotherhood, too. It'd be nice to have some variety.
I started with Iron Warriors, and I still play them as close to the old rules as possible (always maxing out the Heavy Support choice slots). I did, however, add some variety in the form of cult troops other than Berzerkers, like Plague Marines and Thousand Sons (not normally found in an IW company).
I hope the original traitor Legions (ie, from around the Horus Heresy) get their own lists again, or, if GW thinks it will get too confusing, each get their own unit. At least.
Innovation suffuses this hobby like a tea bag in the boiling water of play.
What do you mean OP? Chaos has always been operating as "warbands", in all codexes...it's the equal of loyalist scum and their "strike force" or whatever. Just because the Ultramarines sends out a force on a mission they don't stop being a chapter...but they aren't operating as one in that moment...they still believe girlyman to be the best and so on...that doesn't change...
win some, lose some
He means do we have armies that are part of the 9 larger Traitor Legions, or have we created our own/taken one of the examples of the more recent renegade Loyalists, like Red Corsairs. Using my own example, most of my army is painted as Word Bearers, while some are painted from warbands that do not descend from any of the 9 original Traitor Legions.
