Default Ooh! New Warriors of Chaos Spearhead on GW UK Online Store

http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefr...217&orignav=13

Plastic Chaos Warhounds, plastic Marauder Horsemen, plastic Chaos Knights, and two new Special Characters by the sounds of it, amongst others. Not to mention the Lord on Juggernaut that's been floating around the 'net.

Took the link from the Warhammer section on the main site. Edit: Just received the White Dwarf Online email, and it's listed in there too.

Not worth it. 2 Special characters and 4 other characters? Characters from 3 different gods?? No infantry 'cept 10 Chosen?!?
Not a way to start an army dear. Battalion however...

Of course it's not a way to start an army; it's a Spearhead. In case you weren't aware, Spearheads are designed to get as many of the new models (and the army book/codex) into the hands of players as quickly as possible, and are not intended to be any sort of army deal.

For some of us who play Chaos Mortals, just the news of what's in the Spearhead is nice news; hence my initial post.

Really? When the Army deals (aka spearheads nowadays) came out just a year ago it was a playable core. Now it's just to pump out new models. Yeah it's great if you just want to paint, but then why the Army Book?

I'm simply saying that it sucks that the Spearhead is worthless if you don't already have some Chaos miniatures.

Well, at least it's better than the Dark Elf spearhead.

Spearheads are basically JUST the new models.

Look at the marine one :P

Yeah, but you still want to be able to play with 'em.
I'm just saying that they could at least have pressed in some more infantry so that it becomes easier to play with it. :P

I won't argue about the spearheads (comes up every time a spearhead is announced :), but is this not supposed to be the last one released?

That's what I had heard, as they don't really sell.

Gee, I wonder why.

Perhaps since it just isn't worth it? Like I said, people don't want a bunch of metal characters. It was much better when GW gave out real army deals, like the ones for Dwarves, Empire and Orcs.
