Rumours that Daemons (40k & Fantasy) in this month's White Dwarf

This little tidbit is doing the rounds:

"So in next month's White Dwarf there is going to be a leaflet with updates for Codex Daemons and for Daemons of Chaos in Fantasy.

  • Some changes to old units, Flamers are now only S4 in Fantasy and some units have had point changes.
  • Also new units - Slannesh massive chariot (2D6 +1 impact hits) and other weird chariot thing in one kit. The other thing looks and acts kind of like a mobile meat lawnmower. This is in both games and acts like a chariot in 40K.
  • Soul Grinders are coming to Fantasy! Have T7 6 wounds and a load of upgrades for its shooting. The model (40K kit) in the White Dwarf and leaflet was on the same base as the giant goblin spider.
  • Also new models for Plague Bearers (really really nice, some have fly heads), Screamers (look similar but with lots of eyes), Flamers (similar) and Nurglings.
  • Plus a new beastman shaman."
So the September release for 40k Chaos would seem likely....or may October if box set get Sept slot.

This is a real shakeup if true. The last points change I remember is the update to Dark Elves in 6th Ed Fantasy. The Soulgrider model really doesn't fit the Warhammer universe....the defiler legs kill it for me. I wonder whether they found it in the cave behind the forest where they found the Demigryphs.

I'm taking some of this with a pinch of salt at the moment.


  1. Hrmmm.. interesting, I can only think of gleeful responses to new toys, but then.. new points costs... concerning, still they might drop the points of my Flamers!

    1. Thought you had left daemons to join the dark side with your shift to skaven...


  2. No my good man, once you go Daemon, you've made a life choice.

  3. Soulgrinder in fantasy is the dumbest idea I've ever heard.... You have to be kidding me?

  4. Isn't the next WD out this week?

    I'll be happy as a pig in shit if the PBs are as good as this bloke says they are.

    1. We should be seeing leaks today or tomorrow.

  5. Moving the Soulgrinder into Fantasy .... GW may have just jumped the shark.
