SO, I purchased Chaos Rising today. Apparently it can't even be installed until the official release date.

Those fuckers.

Many stores have a release day on Tuesday for all new things and rarely check to see what the official date is on items. Usually is just says sale not allowed on the register, but this one went through just fine.

It's through steam though. Won't that make a difference? I'll give it a shot anyway.

I should clarify. I didn't buy it through steam. I bought it at a Wal-Mart, the installer contacts steam part way through right after you put in the product key.

Time change did jack all. I blame steam. Oh well, I don't mind waiting for it like everyone else.

General discussion then. Why on earth are the forces of chaos able to summon Khornate daemons when they're clearly aligned with Nurgle? (Plague Marines, Champion, Great Unclean One). I'd rather swap out the Bloodletters and Bloodcrusher for more Nurgle themed stuff like Plague Bearers, hordes of Nurglings, Beasts of Nurgle, or hell, Blight Drones. I know it didn't matter to devs for the first game either, but is there an actual explanation for the two different factions of daemons fighting side by each?

I liken using Steam to living under Lord Vetinari.

Oh sure he's a tyrant, but he's a tyrant who knows what the fuck he's doing and isn't a big prick about it. And fundamentally, he's a tyrant whose primary motivation is making sure everything works the way it's supposed to.

>> No.8500362

Simply put: Because tourney jockeys BAAAAWd that they had to follow the fluff of chaos armies. Now the "option" of playing a fluff-appropriate chaos army is there (For most chaos armies, save iron warriors. But IW were bearded cheese, so fuck them.) but you don't have to follow it. The result is fewer intetersting themed armies, in favour of fielding khorne berserkers alongside thousand-sons.

>> No.8500464

Don't forget that it's easier to balance if you know there'll be bloodletters as opposed to maybe Horrors, maybe Deamonettes, etc etc.

Yeah, that's ticked me off too. Chaos marines are coloured like Nightlords, but don't have their favoured unit available.

No cuhlteest either. I'm not sure weather to be sad that the funny voiced cannon fodder is gone, or happy that the funny voiced meme doesn't apply to DoW2 at all.

Black legion? Huh, the box art is kinda misleading what with the blue armour instead of black, and no legion markings at all.

.... ah what thew hell, I'm running out of decent Nightlord pics anyways (that wouldn't be re-posts), so I'll start throwing some Black Legion ones into the thread now.

>> No.8500909


Yeah I thought they were going to be Nightlords too when I saw the box art.

It's just the lighting they've used though, they're black legion.

I absolutely agree. A bunch of space marines that enjoy terror tactics, and fight like psychopaths, thugs and murders? Sign me up.

Aren't they the only chaos legion that still has power swords in any significant quantity? My memory tells me that they're kinda rare in other legions.

So the whole Chaos Undivided symbol did not tip you off it was not the Night Lords. The lack of lightening bolts and a winged skull did not give it away?

Or just reading the back of the box where it specifies Black Legion?

So, blue armor automatically means it must be Night Lords?

>> No.8501351

8 pointed star of chaos can be on ANY chaos army. Not simply black legion. There were no legion symbols at all. The only other blue and brass chaos legion is thousand sons, but they have an Egyptian motif. Also, it does not specify on the back of the box. It just says "Chaos Marines".

>> No.8501393

Night Lords are nominally undivided.

They make heavy use of the only unaligned daemons that have a statline (Furies).

Clearly you guys haven't been reading enough comic books, or you'd know that that shade of blue in stylized art usually just means it's black, but black with various shades of gray would make for boring-as-shit-art.

i.e. the Black Suit from Spiderman has almost never actually been coloured black.

True... and you're right, I don't read a lot of comic books anymore. But the few I do read, have black, as black. (Just recently read Spiderman Noir and Punisher: The Slavers actually.) So maybe that's why it didn't register with me.

>> No.8502324


I guess it's mostly the older comics that do that prominently, what with the eye-bleeding solid neon colours that were so common in those days, but I'm pretty accustomed to seeing dark shades of blue used to bring out black, to give it more... I dunno, flavour?

But then again, I'm fucking colour blind. Maybe you're just seeing even more obvious blues than I am in the Chaos Rising cover art.
