Games Workshop has started taking names of those of you gamers that want their new Daemons that they’ve got coming out for Warhammer. Be the first one on your block with them when they are released.

From the announcement:

To earn the ire of a Daemon is to sign your own death warrant. Gruesome warriors and fiends all, each of the entities that make up their ranks is a fragment of its patron god given form. They are as immortal as time itself and as powerful as the roiling emotions they embody…

Ready to pre-order today are ghoulish treats for all collectors of both Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer miniatures. Chaos Daemons, also known as Daemons of Chaos in the Warhammer world, receive a host of mind-bogglingly brilliant new miniatures in plastic and Citadel Finecast, as well as a new Codex and Army Book, both of which come in a limited edition format.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Blah, blah, blah, Daemons, blah, blah, blah…

      I was just wondering when I could spend more money on some models that don’t matter because the rules for them are terrible. I hate my money so and want to get rid of it all! 😛

        LOL!

    When I first saw it, the Blood Throne of Khorne reminded my of the car that Homer designed in the Simpsons – GW really have lost it lately. Neither can I get over the truly moronic way those plaguebearers are just plopped on top of the flies they’re supposed to be riding.

    Yep, zero design, bigger and clumsier is better, monster kits 4 teh winnzor!

    GW hasn’t gotten any of my money in a long, long, long, long time. That’s a very long time. Not to mention their prices, and exchange rates, are obscene.

    Thankfully, all those wonderful people who got out of GW and have now started up lovely historical companies are priced reasonably, and in line with the rest of the market.

    I wonder how long before GW really does jump the Space Shark.

    I think some of those models are pretty cool, the drones, the Tzeentch chariot. The Khorne chariot has a cool design, like a chopper through the back half, but then when it gets to the front it gives up and screws it all up with a dancing platform for gogo bloodletters. The Herald of Khorne is pretty cool, but why is there a skull worm coming out of his butt? I think there’s some really, really impressive stuff here, but it’s like someone along the way of the design process kept taking cool ideas and saying “hey, that’s cool, but why don’t we add this retarded thing and make this part more stupid?”

    Being pretty anti-GW these days, I do really like the Khorne chariot. The Tzeentch one, fans have been doing for years, the plaguebearer herald is a pretty weak sculpt, and I can’t like the fly riders, too many things I don’t like about them.

    These could be useful as conversion material to build Forge World type Blight Drones.

    I like the Plague Drones, and the heralds, but overall I’m not impressed with this release. Satisfaction-wise, as a Daemon player (fantasy, not 40K), much will be depending on the actual book.

    I’d like to avoid the standard gripes about prices, but I can’t hold back on at least one comment about the army book itself. It’s not like we haven’t beaten to death the issue with making a pathetically 96-page book, of which the majority of players will never look at more than 1/3 of it, a horrendous US$50, but to then add on another $40 for a faction-based over?!?!?

    As I said, I like the Plague Drones, but I think I’ll satisfy my needs by buying some giant, plastic dragonflies from my local dollar store. The Blood Throne looks so bad and out of date, it looks like it came from the bowels of some ancient issue of Hot Rod comic books. The Tzeentch chariot is neat, if nothing new, plus one wonders why, if the big disc already flies on it’s own at the, presumably, same speed, why one would bother strapping on the littles ones in front. Without seeing the new rules too, it’s also difficult to imagine why it would get impact hits in this form. And as far as the heralds go, and as much as I do like them, they are, again, completely uninspiring.

    Since my budget is still aching from having purchased the Chaos Warriors book last month, my initial reaction is to just shove my Daemons to the back of the closet until their next book comes out. It would give me plenty of time to prep my Beastmen for their next book, since shoving them to the back of the closet is what I did when their current book was released.
