Default Is it just me or is chaos getting the short end of apocalypse?

After reading through several forums and visiting the apocalypse site and searching forgeworld i thought to myself wheres the chaos battle company (space marine wooden crate set) or the chaos version of the imperial tank fist division (10 leman russes) or even a version of a linebreaker squadron(3 vindicators).
but no all we get is a tide of spawn set and a CSM's with rhino boxed sets.
I know its not right to ask to much of GW seeing as we are getting a new codex (which some of us seem to have already) and new models but where are the giant Apocalypse sized Chaos sets? anyone else noticed this? ???

You do know we can use all imperial boxes and datasheets in apocalypse right? > I'd link the source, but it currently resides in one of the apocalypse datasheets that were leaked. Which is of course not allowed to be posted because of GW IP & copyright laws. Anyways in no way is chaos getting the short end because all you have to do is buy any marine box for X$ and a chaos sprew for 5$. Plus you can buy the baneblade and convert it for any legion or faction of chaos you want ;D.

The short end? Please. Apocaplyse wasn't about new models, because if you look the've released very few. Yes, IG have more deals and newm odels than other races, but they're really the heart of Apoc - the team that's always the one with legions of tanks and Guardsmen in the fluff. Besides, it's about big battles with all your models, regardless of army. You Chaos can easily induct IG into your army as corrupted militia!

Chaos have access to every Imperial Datasheet, plus a few of their own. They are definitely not getting the short end of the stick. If anything, they are getting more than everyone else in terms of rules. You just need to do a little conversion. The Chaos upgrade sprues are not that expensive to bits order, are they?

Yes i was thinking of doing that buying the regular baneblade and converting it to chaos because the nurgle baneblade looks crappy to me (personal preference).
As for us using the imperial boxes and datasheets i havent heard about that but it sounds interesting.

As for the fact that i mainly started this post because i wanted a chaos Army come in a wooden crate ;D but that wont happen anytime soon so ill just stick with what ive got...

The nurgle baneblade is a conversion so any chaos baneblade will have to be converted. They also get the brass scorpion and all the imperial datasheets as others have said. They got it the best probably. The linebreaker squadron is said to come with the chaos bits as well so can't complain there. The reason they didn't get a massive army in a box deal is because they have a new codex and huge model release right before Apoc. Who would buy a battelforce or a few boxed sets when they can get a huge army for the price of 2 batteforce boxes?
