40K/Age of Sigmar RUMORS: New Chaos Daemons Inbound

Come get the latest scuttlebutt on what the Ruinous Powers have in store in the days ahead.

GW has already shown off some little teases of Chaos Daemons headed our way soon.  At the LVO Seminar we saw the new Skulltaker, and word so some new Age of Sigmar battletomes headed our way, like an all new Blades of Khorne.

 

Look at my new plastic cape. It’s so much lighter – my shoulders feel GREAT!

With both Slaanesh coming soon to Age of Sigmar, and a several Daemon themed Battletomes en route, it seems like there may be more lurking beneath the rumorwaves…

The New Stuff

Industry professionals say:

  • Look for several Chaos kits to get redone in 2019
  • Skulltaker is only the beginning.
  • GW is keen to replace the old Finecast out of their catalogue as soon as they can.
  • Characters will be the focus this time.

I wish I could dance as well as the plastic Berzerkers!

Thoughts

Ok, let’s break this down.  I took a tour of the Chaos Daemons section of the GW’s website and did a count of all the Resin/Finecast minis:

  • Keeper of Secrets
  • Herald of Tzeentch of Disk
  • Blue Scribes
  • Herald of Khorne on Jugger
  • Furies
  • Herald of Tzeentch
  • The Masque
  • Skulltaker (already unveiled)
  • Epidemius

These can be broadly broken up into two families,

Named Characters:

  • Skulltaker
  • Masque
  • Blue Scribes
  • Epidemius

Generic Heralds:

  • Herald of Tzeentch of Disk
  • Herald of Khorne on Jugger
  • Herald of Tzeentch

We’ve been writing the FAQs for years!

I assume the Keeper of Secrets will be a centerpiece kit of the Slaanesh return, and oh my, the poor Furies are still metal – not even being redone in Finecast. I wouldn’t worry about them. Just use Daughters of Khaine Khinerai and call it a day – you’ll be happier!

With Skulltaker being announced, I would bet on the set of named characters coming back in sexy plastic.  While the Generic Heralds are still Finecast, they can be proxied fairly easily using the existing Daemon plastic kits.

~ Which of these do you most want to see redone in plastic?
