Please keep in mind that all of this is pure speculation. It is worth noting that GW supposedly recently “fired” some of its playtester pool recently who were thought responsible for leaking rules. However, the information-sharing policy is supposedly okay once it is leaked.

Regardless here are the latest Chaos Daemons rules rumors and leaks with a look at the official preview by GW first!

Chaos Daemons Codex Art & Details Revealed By GW!

Chaos Daemons

There’s another ever-present threat lurking just behind the material veil. Gibbering, bloodthirsty legions of daemons claw at the walls of existence, taking advantage of any tear in realspace to manifest plagues and curses, tempt mortal souls, and slaughter untold millions. All it takes to invite devastation is one ill-considered ritual drawn from a blasphemous grimoire… speaking of which, Codex: Chaos Daemons is on the way.

As we said, there weren’t too many rumors floating around about when this would actually come out. Maybe that’s because it was basically next in line! Also, we’re not sure if many new minis will come with the book, but we expect at least one new character model.

However, they don’t give an exact date as of yet.

The warp-wrought children of the Chaos Gods are bursting out of the immaterium with a 152-page tome packed with eldritch esoterica, forbidden daemonology, and in-depth rules for games of Warhammer 40,000. There are more ways than ever to bend the mortal plane to your will, thanks to 56 datasheets split between the four Chaos Gods – and Be’lakor, with his very own Army of Renown – alongside 25 Warlord Traits, 24 Relics, 36 Stratagems, and a profane slate of psychic powers for all.

The book will be quite large and, from the looks of it, plenty for every Chaos god!

RUMORS: New Chaos Daemons Soul Grinder & Chariot 40k Codex Rules!

These rumors come from Bolter and Chainsword, and Wallace on YouTube. Let’s start with the chariot.

Daemons rumorsThe statline is pretty decent, and with a 4+/4+ it should have decent survivability. However, the real strength comes in with the shooting. Even though the three shots don’t auto-hit, S9 at BS3, -4 AP, and D2, it could dish out some serious damage.

However, the 2d6 shots auto-hitting a5 S6 and -2AP could really wipe out big units of lightly armored units. In melee, it also has some decent stats, then when you consider the double aura, it looks quite strong! We’ll just have to wait and see on points for how it really plays out.

Now, let’s check out the Soulgrinder!

Soul GrinderStatline:

  • 8″M 3+ws/bs S8 T8 16W 5A 8LD 4+/5+ ranged/melee Daemon save

Ranged guns:

  • Cannon 48″ heavy 6 S6 -2ap D2
  • Belly gun 36″ heavy d6 (blast) S8 -2ap D3

Melee weapons (iron claw and one of the others):

  • Iron claw Sx2 -3ap d6
  • Sword S8 -3ap d3+3 damage +2 attacks with this weapon
  • Other claw S8 -2ap D2 +4 attacks with this one

Depending on which god:

  • Tzeentch – 4+ in melee
  • Khorne – +1 attack
  • Nurgle – +1 toughness
  • Slaanesh – +2″ movement
  • Edit: that was about it, obviously at 16W, it will bracket somehow, but they didn’t mention it

Overall this looks pretty good with plenty of beef, good melee and shooting attacks, good buffs from the marks, and overall just cool!

So again, take all these rules for the rumors they are until we get more information to cross-reference as if the pattern holds; we will see more and more leaks now that the first ones have started…
