2 Minute Read
Mar 9 2012

They’re 10,000 years old, they lost, and they are PISSED.  Here’s the latest scuttlebutt out there on the Traitor Legions.

via The Dude (That’s just… like… your opinion, man.)

 – First up, there is the implication of the new aesthetic design of the dead Thousand Son torso on the ThunderWolves kit.  Have fun with that one. Plastic cult troops are said to be on the way.

– Talk of new Chaos Predator weapon options including a TL Plasmagun turret with single Plasmagun sponsons.

– Hints of Obliterator weapon morphs expanding beyond just energy weapons (as has been mentioned in some recent Black Library novels)

– Talk of several special characters look to be getting varying levels of Eternal Warrior (1-3), including Abaddon, Kharn, Typhus and two more.  Hmm, multiple versions of Eternal Warrior was including in the “Mystery/Hoax ruleset.

Options for “mid-level” characters possibly able to be taken taken as 2-for-1 HQ choices, or possibly as “as a separate Elite or Fast or Troop choice that can be split off” Example given was a possible unit of Dark Apostles that can then split off as squad leaders. (like Wolfguard)
– Chaos will struggle to combat psykers, but Khornate characters have ways of nullifying psychic abilities aimed at them. (probably Collars of Khorne)
– More options for Thousand Sons and a Tzeentch Daemon Engine.
– And finally, talk of Alpha Legion forcing enemies to take Ld tests before they move or shoot in some manner. ~ I am Alpharius!
