6th edition starter set contents

So there seems to be a leak in GW's Chinese production facility and the contents of the 6th ed starter set are out of the bag!

Thanks to spaint2k on Warseer for the translation!

The Forces of Chaos:

Chaos Lord: Power sword, plasma pistol, krak and frag grenades

Dreadnought (Hellbeast? Is that the new name?): says twin-barrelled melta gun and power fist - but judging by the stats I think this is a multimelta.

Chosen of the Gods:
Sergeant: power maul, bolt pistol, bolter.
One has a lightning claw, one has a power axe, bolt pistol and bolter, another has power fist, bolt pistol and bolter, two are armed with "cc weapons", bolter and bolt pistols. The squad has frag and krak grenades.

Cultist Squad 1: (IG stats with a 6+ save)
Cultist leader: two cc weapons
Cultists: 1 flamer, 8 cc weapons and autopistols

Cultist Squad 2:
Cultist leader : CC weapon and a gun I don't know the name of: assault 2, 12" range, S4, no AP (shotgun?)
Cultists: 1 heavy stubber, 8 with autoguns.

The Dark Angels:

Captain Balthasar: w/ Power Armour, Power sword, Combi-Plasma, Frag & Krak grenades

  1. Great news seeing Cultists in there!

  2. Wow! Sounds like an awesome set.

  3. Well they needed something that screams loudly and dies in droves for the marines to feel good about themselves.

  4. Nice!

    CSM, cultists and allied daemons? Happy dance time!

  5. I hope this is the case, I need some termies for my astral claws, and if i get 3 of these, hopefully the dreads will take the place of my 3 current AoBR ones.

  6. This reads like a CSM Megaforce...

    The Termies work in Astral Claws, while the Cultists go straight into Tyrant Legion. Huzzah.

  7. Well I definitely hope this is correct.
    Sounds like a really nicely sized starter set.

  8. Me gusta mucho lo del Hellbeast y Chosen of the gods!

    Espero que además del starter saquen un megaforce!!!

  9. Looks like the dark angels are going to be plasma heavy as they should be. Maybe they will get their own version of vulkan.

  10. is there any news on a rulebook?
