I fething hate the deathguard range, every 3rd guy having to have a gigantic tentacle sprouting from their kidney, or as you say the fly terminator, it’s infuriating to me. Absolutely prevented me from making a death guard army. The old ones were chipped, decayed, damaged armor. Looked like marines that had been through hell but were kept together and not allowed to die. The new ones look like they got dunked in a fish tank and came out covered in tentacles and random mouths.

Why does the new Cultist squad come with a Chainsword, even?

I'm not seeing a point, since you can't bloody legally equip your unit with one!

They can be equipped with 'brutal assault weapons'. Few weapons in the game are more 'brutal' than the chainsword. The brutal assault weapon also grants an extra attack like a chainsword. Also of note, it's not an Astartes Chainsword.

The "Brutal Assault Weapon" is the default melee weapon for all of them, though, and also the only option. The Chainsword is a purely cosmetic choice, it seems.

Yes. I'd have thought that was obvious.

So, you are saying they threw darts at someone's knees during lunch?

[...] To the Ork, the only conceivable explanation for this is that the vehicle travels faster because it is red. However, as disturbing as it sounds, these 'facts' become true. Red Ork vehicles do travel perceptibly faster than those of other colors, even when all other design aspects are nominally the same. Similarly, many captured Ork weapons and items of equipment should not work, and indeed do not work unless wielded by an Ork. I believe this is linked to the strong psychic aura surrounding all Orkoids and have developed the Anzion Theorem of Orkoid Mechamorphic Resonant Kinetics. I theorise that many Ork inventions work because the Orks themselves think that they should work. The strong telekinetic abilities of the Ork's subconscious somehow ensures that the machinery or weaponry functions as desired.

I'm tempted to start a gofundme to see if a codex actually written that way would turn out better or worse than the current one.

TBF many details people identify as 'tentacles' on Nurgle models are probably engorged parasites (certain subtle design cue differences between them and how GW sculpts tentacles) though obviously players can fluff however they prefer. Still an entirely valid point though, with the fly terminator being particularly egregious. The Putrid Blightkings kit was an example of GW doing the 'zigzag' sculpting but making it work in a way that really left the field open for customizing.

GW's official painting videos refer to them as tentacles, so even if the designers intended them to be parasites it would seem the rest of the company either didn't get the memo or don't care to correct the supposed misconception.

Someone leaked a copy of the model somewhere online (a playtester, or someone with an advanced copy of a book), and whenever someone does that, GW immediately posts an article with a high quality image to counter the potato leak. I don't think they were intending to show off the model this early otherwise.

Not always, no. But the few cases where GW doesn't react are, as best as I can remember, related to new edition launches where even if a leaker steals GW's thunder, GW is unwilling to come out early in acknowledgement and instead just pretends that nothing happened until they are ready to get their their marketing machine rolling. New models tied to a codex release don't get that kind of consideration, so in most cases if there's a significant enough leak, GW reacts to it.

These days, yes they do. We’ll, Almost always at least. The exceptions being a few primaris leaks and the horus heresy. They may not reveal the whole picture but they’ll address at least one model from it, like with AM or Angron
