For those of you who don't haunt Warseer (or are like me and have trouble finding stuff on there :) )


The Spearhead:

The teasing glimpse of the new plastic Daemon Prince

As far as the warriors go, the Knights and Chosen look kind of, well, sloppy. I'm not sure if it's the palatte of colors they chose or the photo quality, but they just look cluttered and muddled. I do like how they're trying to resemble the Chaos Warriors of the Late 80's/Early 90's. As my army incorporates recent models as well as ancient models, these guys should help bridge the gap nicely.

So, the knights have lances again?! Think they'll drop them to S4 and give them the +2 on the charge again? Or keep them at the S5 and make them Chariot-killers on the charge? Maybe they stay as they are and the lances are cosmetic? I would really hate to have to convert all my existing knights to give them all lances now.

I like the marauder horsemen and chaos hounds. It's about time they made them in plastic!

Overall, the heroes look good. The Khorne Lord on the Forsaken/Juggernaut is just damn goofy, but I like the other mounted hero. The Khorne Champion on foot, the Nurgle Sorcerer, and the deceptively fragile-looking Slaanesh special character all look great! Not sure what the ugly guy with the beard & bone-crosses is supposed to be (I think he's the Marauder special char) but I don't really like him.

So the question is now, "To Spearhead or Not To Spearhead?" I like getting the book and a bunch of models before anyone else. But considering my Daemon spearhead is still mostly in the box, not sure if it's wise for me to drop all that money if I'm not getting around to actually putting them together.

As far as the Daemon Prince goes, I can't see enough of him to judge. He could very easily go either way. Looks a lot like the plastic Spawn kit.

I guess I'll just have to wait until it gets closer to release time.

KoC are now str 4 with the ability to get lances or swords of might.
The guy with bones on him is in deed a Marauder SC. ( He lets marauder have a rule like ambush or the miners rule)
Also the whole army has the old MoU rule of re-roll panic, and some units can roll on this table called the Eye of the Gods. This table may give you good things like MR, Unbreakable, stat ups, or bad ones like stupid. One Love
