So as many of you are aware, GW released it's first hardback codex for 40K, Chaos Marines.
Here is a direct link to what hit the shelves today
I had a chance to sit down with a copy that happened to be left out on the counter at my FLGS and start working on a 1500 and 2000 point list on Friday, and was amazed at the improvements for Chaos Lords and some of the point-level adjustments that were made to make Chaos a codex that a lot of people at the FLGS are talking about again.
I am already liking some of the synergies I found amongst the wargear, one combination that I liked is Black Mace and Dimensional Key... but don't expect to see "Lash" lists, "Lash" didn't even make it into the codex (or at least thus far, I haven't seen it in there).
I am going to give my initial list a couple of go-rounds before making any serious purchases... luckily my 1500 point list doesn't require me to buy anything, just borrow a couple of models from some friends to get me going.
I'll keep you posted on how my lists evolve and fare, just keep an eye open here for future updates.
