It’s been a busy weekend for Games-Workshop and Forgeworld. Both have released previews of the new models that they will be releasing. Now, I don’t play Chaos Space marines, but I’ve always said that if I did, I would probably play Death Guard. In my opinion the new models that Games-Workshop is releasing are very nice. The new Chaos Space marines don’t look like regular space marines with spikes. It’s also nice to see Games-Workshop making more dynamic model poses as well as making the models resemble some of the art work.
I’m very happy with the new figures, and depending on how the codex is done I may even dabble with a small Chaos Marine army. There are some problems with the new release of Chaos Marines. The first are the Daemon Engines.
While these units are very interesting and probably would be fun to build and paint. They’re just not my cup of tea. I have no criticism about the models I just think Chaos Marine tech would be regular marine tech but warped by chaos. They’re design, lines, and aesthetics are completely different from what is generally accepted as Space Marine aesthetics. However, the most disappointing thing about the upcoming Chaos Marine release is the repackage of many of the older models into Finecast. When compared to the new models that are being released, this sadly just makes to older models look more dated and bland.
Finally, the other big news is the preview of the World Eaters Primarch Angron that Forgeworld is release with all the other Pre-Heresy and Heresy era models. You can check out the video below:
As I expected from Forgeworld, this is a very nice model, and I’m already tempted to started a collection of the Primarchs as they come out. My only concern, and that’s only because I can tell by the video or pictures, is the size of the model. The impression I have as of now is that the model appears to be a bit small for what a Primarch should be. Let me know what thoughts are in the comments about the New Chaos Space Marine models and Angron model.
