Announcing: Chaos Expansions!

As you can see in the Predicted Update Order, I've added four more books after Daemons of Chaos, one for each Chaos God. The idea behind this is that rather than having a very bloated bestiary section for the Warriors of Chaos, their main book will be focused on Chaos Undivided with all their standard main units and general background, and then each god will get their own expansion book with unique units and special characters (and most likely options to include Daemons if you are doing a mono-god army). This will also allow me to incorporate more of the Age of Sigmar models released (with fluff to fit the Old World of course) and really delve into their background, and let me tell you; there is a lot of that, too much to be included in a single book.

Let me know of your thoughts, as well as any particular issues or suggestions you might have for each upcoming book.

  2. Regarding Swivel Guns/Shaturnals used by the Pirates of Sartosa and Ind camel riders. The rules for Swivel Guns in Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay had them be able to fire like a blunderbuss where the profile was identical to that of a blunderbuss except damage 5. That should mean that Swivel Guns should be able to fire S5 blunderbuss shots. The Shaturnals used by Ind should also have the same rule that makes them a risk to the user as the Swivel Guns of Sartosa. Lastly, I think Camel Riders from Araby should have the option for Handguns and a special version that's uses Shaturnals as well.

    1. I found some fluff on them being able to be used as blunderbusses in WFRP1, yes. However, there's a bit of a space issue on the page to fit an alternative firing mode in. I could skip the misfire rules for the Swivel gun and add a blunderbuss funktion instead. However, the shaturnal only fired solid shot as far as I'm aware.

      Camel riders from Araby are a bit different though, essentially being nomads. I think it would be trickier for them to get their hands on small cannons. I'd also prefer to keep them different from each other ruleswise to make the armies play different from each other.

  3. Rules for Silver Towers of Tzeentch? Bane Tower of Nurgle, Daemon Engine of Khorne?

    1. Silver Towers would be rather hard to incorporate on the battlefield. The other two seem to be from 40k?

    2. Epic actually. In either case, I don't think that these things actually exist in WHFB lore.

  4. Because GW made it so that the Slaughterbute and the Mutalith Vortex Beast can be taken as part of Blades of Khorne and Disciples of Tzeentch allegiances, perhaps you could include them into the upcoming Chaos God expansion books.

    1. That was the intention, as they both seem to heavily lean towards Khorne and Tzeentch, respectively.

  5. Is there any chance to see something related to the Dark Elves Cult of Slaanesh in the Servants of Slaanesh Army Book?
