Default new chaos player for new 'dex

Hey all. I have finally fell to the legions of the Dark Gods. >

Anywho, I have had a 3rd edition codex for...well some time...but never actually got around to building an army.

So! This is mostly for the rumor/seen-4th-codex guys. but anyone can help XD

I was going to buy some stuff this weekend...to prepare (fiddle with 3rd for a bit, then expand when 4th comes out)

I was thinking of Death Guard or an undivided such as Night Lords(speed) or...something i can't quite decide on...

So...first...If anyone has any news on the codex...Are the legions still the same? (as in night lords and stuff)

2nd. Can anyone help me out on what to first get?

for either army (aside from the troops) and whether a daemon prince or lord is a better selection for either army.

Kind of a vague post...sorry.

The legion specific rules have gone as far as I know, but the legions are still there. You just have more flexibility for building each force. Choose the units that fit the background of the legion best if you want a themed army (ie raptors for night lords, plague marines for deathguard).

First buy - the new codex when its out. If you want some models first then get a couple of plague marine units for deathguard, or a couple of plastic CSM squads for night lords. A HQ of necessary too - but do you want a daemon prince or a lord? The nurgle prince is pretty cool......and disgusting.

For deathguard, get some plague marine bikers (convert your own). These guys will be sick with the new rules (but still nothing compared to wraithguard!). For night lords, get raptors and bikes to fill that need for speed.

I prefer daemon princes - its nice to have a big centrepiece model for your army. That said a terminator lord with bodyguard is just as good.

Hope that helps.

Well all legion traits are gone raptors are not 0-1 so you can take 3 of them
instead of making marines they have marines that are already marked, so you can buy squads like death guard marines pre make(I HAVE THE NEW CODEX)
but you can still have marines with no makes and make them all make are different
some are still the same but for Slaanesh you get+1 to your (I) for Tzeentch you get +1 to your (IV) save.

BY THE WAY DEARTH GUARD HAVE ONE LESS (I) THE A SPACE MARINE.

I say just get the Army deal that includes the codex: that way, you'll have a good basis for whatever army you decide on, as the plastics will be easy to make into either Night Lords OR Death Guard.

Heck... why not even make your own Renegade Chapter?
