Has anyone seen the new rules for the giant spined chaos beast or giant chaos spawn?
I am thinking of getting one of the models from forgeworld as a chrimbo present and painting project
I heard the imperial armour 2006 update was available to look at during games day?
i don't want the stats and know thats not allowed but a description of what it would be used for would be cool. Although i don't want people posting stats for me please as i've already got into bother for that.
Also, how do you get release dates for forgeworld books? on the website it lets me buy it? Does this mean i actually can get the book now? Or that they will send it to me when its ready?
i was wanting to buy the model tomorrow to get it for chrimbo, but want to decide which one suits the way i play better which is hard without a rulebook :wacko:
The Spined Chaos Beast is a Daemon that costs like a tank, can be tooled with appropriate upgrades from the Armoury, has a regular Daemonic Save and pretty good other stats, except its average initiative.
All together, it is an expensive fire magnet that can be a lot of pain in the neck to your opponent if you manage to get it into melee.
Giant Chaos Spawn is more or less a better Chaos Spawn.
dose the spined beast summon like other demons?
No it doesn't, it's fielded just like a dreadnought.
The model itself is great ( have one for my DG ) so it'll make for a nice centerpiece, it's also fun to use given it's not an uber powerfull cc monster but a far more balanced beast with some nifty options.
The giant chaos spawn is..well.....a really big version of the chaos spawn so it's rules are largely similair though it has some extra's.
How can I know more about those ?

thanks guys for the info
i think at this moment i'll hold off
i really like the hell blade fighter model also so might be tempted with that also, so i'll see what i prefer, have oredered the book so i'll hopefully get that for christmas and make my desicion from that
mindraked - go to FORGE WORLD
under 40k, imperial armour and then chaos you will see the new models which are hell talon fighter bomber, hell blade fighter, giant spined chaos beast, giant chaos spawn and chaos dreadclaw assault pod. All the models look great, i'm definitely going to get something but not sure what.
and the rules for these are in imperial armour update 2006 which may or may not be out
Is it just me, or does Forge World have a very terribly laid-out webpage?
It just looks horrid, and is hard to navigate.
So having said that, I'm really interested in seeing the new chaos models...could you link the spot where they are actually shown? I found the spot where you can see the Table of Contents for the Imperial Armour Update 2006...but can't find the pics.
 Found them under...Vehicles and Accessories...what the crap?
