Last year I made the trip to Games Day UK and enjoyed a look at the largest display of Emperor's children models i've ever seen. The Drop Site Massacre of Istvaan V was on display, The Iron Hands and their multiple astartes were everywhere. It was at this point I got to see two of the newer Horus Heresy models, The Emperor's Children Legion Kakophoni and the Phoenix Terminators. They look astounding. (i'll post some pictures up as I get home of the Drop Site Massacre)

It was a feast for the eyes to see our legion in it's glory, lead by the primarch Fulgrim. I was compelled by that sight. I had to get hold of some of those models.

So it was on that day that I bought my Kakophoni. They are currently still bagged up in the forgeworld bag, unused, un loved. But are one of my favorite sets of models.

I will be starting to paint them soon, I am trying to decide wether to keep them painted in their pre heresy colours (and fight a long side my pink and black marines) or to paint them with the rest of the legion.

I also have some Palatine blades which i bought more recently. I'd suggest checking them out too, they are awesome. I'll be using these as chosen, or maybe sorcerers of some kind I think.

I hope you enjoy these.

Some updates on the Daemon psyker abilities (and the rest of them) can be found on my blog if anyone fancies reading them.

You're right Poem. The Taudar (or as you referred to it, Teldar, same thing) combination is attrociously effective. The allies rule makes sense in some factors, like Imperial guard and Marines, CSM and Daemons, Necrons and Grey Kni-.. Oh wait. Anyway, that being said, the Allies rule will be here to stay but rumours are the chart is to change (hopefully, for the better)

People bring some ridiculous combinations to the table. My friend played a game (and lost-HA!) as "Necrons" & "Ultramarines" vs Eldar Iyanden supplement. I'm glad the Eldar won

But yes, some of the combinations are far too powerful. The whole WAAC (win at all costs) atmosphere around using allies draws out your average "That F'in Guy" into fielding the strongest forces imaginable...

Just wait until this "unbound" business comes into play.... ::)

Still, It's reasonable to assume that everything GW is doing is first and foremost, to try and sell more and more miniatures. (By the way, looks like they are still pretending Forge World doesn't exist)

Edit: Just another thing I'm going to add, interesting fact. My house is currently the home of a hive of honey bees. This is costing me more time and money to handle than I'd like... Maybe no 7th edition book for me for a while if this continues much longer. I like bees.. Just wish they'd leave my house alone!

The problem we have with 6th edition is how much of a mess it is. There are many things that are imbalanced and in order to try and balance things They release untold expansion books, stronghold, escalation, dataslates, New armies as allies (Lords of War, Inquisition, Imperial Knights) - Whilst the 6th edition rulebook doesn't refer to them at all, many people have been dubious about buying and using them. In order for GW to be able to continue to rip people off make profit from such releases, they are indeed creating a new edition to cater for the wave of recent releases (and upcoming releases)

Whilst they make no mention of calling it '7th' edition, they do continue to call it the 'New' edition and do not mention it is just a 'revised' edition.

With rumours of massive changes in some areas, (Psychic phase - Changes to snapshots in overwatch, to name a couple) it does appear this edition will work somewhat differently to the previous edition. 6th edition wasn't great, but nobody called for it fixing this early. It feels like this is all designed to make as much profit from their miniatures while they can.

Regardless, I am trying to view it through rose tinted glasses. It's happening and there's nothing anyone can do about it, so I'm looking forward to learning about the changes and adapting my style of play. I am hoping that this new edition will give me more reason to bring out my Chaos Space Marines (as, at the moment, they just can't seem to win anything)

I will be testing the new edition extensively with my Chaos, Tyranids and Tau army. Chaos will be at the forefront of my playing as I am pretty excited about the whole daemon summoning business.

I'll let you know how it goes.  :)

I was around on the original forum but didn't post that much. Not sure if anyone remembers me. (spent more time reading the posts you guys made than posting my own rubbish!)
Anyways, Signed up again. Kept the same username too. Hope to see others flocking back soon.

7th edition is fast approaching and wanted to see what peoples opinions were on the upcoming stuff. Especially the Daemonology stuff under the Malefic psyker pool.
More info available in my blog post here but I will post the images up on this thread once I get home. (At work and image hosting doesn't work on this network!)


(Sorry if the size is poor, try clicking it or downloading it from my blog if that's any better...?)

It appears there may be a change for my chaos sorcerers to summon Daemonettes into battle - Finally giving me a reason to get hold of and paint some more Daemonettes. And even a Keeper of Secrets!!

Anyway, I'm glad you didn't do away with the forum! I'm sure it was a load of work to keep things rolling and wanted to make it known that I appreciate it. I've grown much more attatched to the world of 40k and the fluff behind it all, most specifically the Emperor's Children and I felt it time to come and do a bit of posting! To find the site had changed drastically!

Still, glad to see some familiar names and will be checking back regularly. Gonna need someone to help me through this 7th edition stuff!!
