Those chaos marines are in the dark vengeance style, plus the same size as those primaris.

Possibly a hq with a giant flaming mace? Sounds good.

MIght be. Since the last supplement they pushed Black Legion towards elites, Chosen and Terminators.

I'm still wondering whether the Slaughtertick will be the size of a Marine, a Demolisher or larger than a Land Raider. Judging by the artist's perspective skills it could be anything from a large scarab to a warlord titan

One of the more reasonable rumor mongers here on the boards has suggested new chaos terminators.

If Chaos Terminators receive thunder hammer equivalents what will Chaos complaint about then?!

We need to think about Chaos players!

I hope it's just a new character.

Don't really think that we need new Chaos Terminators that are for some reason even bigger than the current ones.

Well Chaos Terminators are surely one kit that could go with a refresh.

Also for some reason Chaos terminators have always been bigger than loyalist marines and by a good margin in all forms of media, comics, official art, videogames, etc... probably to make of them the "Big bad guy". Is not like their size has any consistence.

GW knocked the Death Guard Terminators out of the park, and I'd be thrilled to see new CSM Terminators. They're looking very dated now and would only look worse when put alongside the new generation of chaos marines.

But based on the Ork release, could be getting 6 different Terminator kits

Let me see...
Chaos Terminators
Scarab Occult Terminators
Death Guard Terminators
Sonic Terminators
Terminator Berzerkers

That would be five kits, and I sure wouldn't be complaining! We have three already, although the standard Terminators are very dated.

I wonder if there is also any new terrain previewed in that cover art, since most of it looks exactly like existing terrain kits.

PLEASE give us a new terminator kit. Scale creep FTW.

After the 6th edition chaos kits to now (Blackstone Fortress, etc.), and primaris, all the old stuff looks awful to me. I've sold most of it off in anticipation of cool new stuff.

Sadly, I assume it's just artwork. Hard to tell these days. For a minute there, it seemed like artwork only represented models. Now that isn't always the case.

Death Guard have 2 terminator kits, so that would be 6.

New termies would herald the end of everything.

The new kit would likely not have the same flexibility of the current terminators and the forums would go up in flames at that point.

Fair point. I'd rather have fewer options* and better models, personally. Not like I ever use terminators at this point anyway, even with all their cool options.

*Assuming those few options aren't all total garbage.

I'd be happy with any kits that Chaos get, tbh. Chaos Marines, Berzerkers, Terminators, Oblits, Havocs, etc are just so old and small compared to.. everything else.

I'd also be pleased with some new kits like the rumored Chaos Tick. It looks awesome and makes me eager to convert some things.

What I DON'T want is only new units. Please replace one or two of the old kits at the very least.

Honestly I'd just be happy if they gave that tentacle arm some sorta rule or profile for melee. Maybe something akin to the ability Wyches have with regards to stopping a fall back?

Same - I've been waiting to update my BL with new scale stuff. I just can't bring myself to use mini-marines when it seems likely new ones are on the way.

On balance, I am cautiously optimistic for a pretty major Chaos Space Marine release. We have Haarkon, the teased Dark Apostle/Sorcerer character with all the flaming skulls, and the 80 days Vigilus countdown. We also have all these unrepresented designs showing up in artwork.

However, I am most reassured by the Rumour Engine pics. There are at least 4 that heavily suggest Chaos units (the probable Sorcerer backpack vent, the Chaos-y plasma cannon, the Chaos-marked tome, and the Slanneshi-esque pata-sword), as well as the flaming brazier. That is a lot of Chaos-related titbits. EDIT: also the burning skull in the 8-pointed star-ring.

Taken all together, and I think we can expect more than just a token release.

Not that one- the one that looks like a Slanneshi version of an Indian pata:

Spoiler:




To me, this looks an awful lot like a part from a mortal Slanneshi infantry unit, maybe from AoS instead of 40k, but could be either (like the Tzaangors).

By 'brazier' you mean Vorne-like flamer? Because I don't think that is Chaos at all, but something from Ecclesiarchy...
