Chaos is Coming to Visit for OVER a MONTH!?

2 Minute Read

The ruinous powers coming on the heels of Dark Eldar are going to be staying a while…

Just yesterday we got this word from old standby Steve the Warboss:

“Soon after the Dark Eldar, Endtimes will goes into the next round. It will be a big chaos release with 5-6 week.”

Which builds directly on the rumors that broke out of Spain 2 days ago:

October – The Month of Chaos
“There is something we haven’t seen yet that will pop out soon enough. A new kind of evil and destruction related to Glotkin.
October should be the month of Chaos, the starter kit is there somewhere, I don’t know when, the way they told me I thought it would be on september 20th.

Chaos book. 2 big boxes. 1 medium-sized box, and a SC (TN: special character) blister. (emphasis by editor)

Unholy cards?
Will Malus become a daemon prince?
Will the cult of slaanesh (TN: Cult of Pleasure) return?
Will the anointed druchii come back to obliterate Naggaroth?
Will the Nagarythe prophecy become true?
Will the old chaos champions return?
Is the Caledor dragons prophecy finally here?”

If you recall earlier in the year we had rumors of several Chaos Daemons kits that had been kept on ice for some time.  These include the 4 plastic Major Daemons, as well as a “giant Nurgle kit”.

The Nagash End Times window was only 3 weeks and I think it is unlikely to see a solid 6 weeks devoted to WFB, plus that is a LOT of chaos product to fill for WFB only at once.

But – if you broke that into two 3-week windows, one being WFB/Archaon/End Times related and one being “generic Chaos” (AKA 40k/WFB related) and you dumped generic dual-system use models like major daemons in there, a lot of these rumors start to make a kind of sense.


~ What kits would you expect to see if GW had to fill 6 weeks with Chaos?
