I popped down to the local hobby shop this morning to get this weeks issue of White Dwarf and look what fell into my impulsive calloused hands.
Damn GW and their tricksy ways of feeding my addiction to Chaos…….
……I really wasn’t going to buy this, but the ‘leaked’ rumours about Possessed becoming troops fitted my Castigators background perfectly. For those interested My Castigators are an Imperial Fists successor Chapter who have vowed ‘that all Sons of Dorn shall bend the knee to Slaanesh.’ In game terms all of my Possessed wear armour from the Imperial/Crimson Fists & the Black Templars.
I was holding out for the mythical Legion/Slaanesh supplement but I have this theory that GW will never release one. I get the feeling that GW doesn’t want to encourage the rivalry that exists between the Gods. Every Chaos release after the ‘Glorious 3.5’ has played down this rivalry and GW thinks it’s perfectly fine for an Emperors Children army to have a Khorne Lord of Skulls in it. I remember, just after the 4th Chaos Codex was released, being at a seminar at GWHQ and I asked the question if they were working on any rules for mono God Chaos Space Marines. Jervis and Gav Thorpe were completely thrown by the overwhelming desire of people in the meeting wanting rules for mono God and Legion lists. In the end Jervis said something about them looking into it in the future. Two Codexes later and they’re still ignoring what many Chaos players want to see…..Shrug…..Anyhoo, I digress, like all good Slaanesh followers, I can resist everything but temptation, so I’m now the proud owner of the latest Chaos Supplement.
I’ve had a very brief look through it (apologies if you thought this would be a review of it, but it’s just random ramblings really). Like the other supplements it contains just two pages of rules. The quality of the book is the usual high standard with lots of glossy piccies and cool background. I’ve realised that I’m more of a book man than a digi-lover, I love the smell of a freshly printed book (and being a printer you’d think I’d be immune to that by now!), so the book works for me. There are twenty pages of missions to look through and I’m sure me and Rob will get plenty of use out of them.
Overall I like the book, but for me I’m more interested in the hobby side than I am in competing in tournaments these days, so your value may vary.
Right, I’m off to build a new bookcase so my shelves stay on the wall….until next time…. stay frosty! 🙂
