Khorne should have no ball-related skills in order to match the fluff.

Maybee... I'm just looking at the models and making a guess... Wink

As the team is mostly humans it might have some ball handling skills. If it were mainly demons as the computer version I would agree more.

None as STARTING SKILLS at least.
But who is eventuslly going to get Sure Hands and other Ball-related Skills? 1 of the Linemen. Hence the minis holding the ball.

The rest of the team is too important for Killing and Killing to take away from the Killing-related aspects of the game.

Linemen always get stuck with the job nobody else on the team wants to do. Except the Fouling. They get to do that.

Why are people saying bestigors? It's Khorngors.
And why are people thinking only 0-2? There are 2 Pestigors in the Nurgle box but 0-4 on the team. No reason for Khorne to be different.

Jimmy because recently they have been including the full team minus bigs in the box. though with you I assume that this will be a different flavor of chaos much like nurgle. Frenzy lineman, warriors + (like bloaters) khorne gore's (like pesti's) the same but different to match the flavor of khorne

I'm thinking it will be extremely distinct from Khorne Daemons or just a reskin of the chaos edition team.

If it is distinct I think the Khorngors will be more like werewolves claws frenzy (horns?) and the warriors will either be Chaos Warriors with worse agi or 3str 3agi with block.

I think either way Frenzy linemen is super duper Khorne and they would be crazy to change it.

Because GW calls them "Ferocious Bestigors who bear the mark of Khorne".

it mentions the name of the big guy (bloodspawn) and it has artwork


two big takeaways from the article, we should see at least some rules in the near future, before the spike, and also that there is a naming pattern (rotspawn, bloodspawn) which might hint at future names for tzeentch and slaanesh big guys

Oooh. Is that the fluff for Pestigors too? Or does this indicate that Khorngors will be better?

I guess it could just be a mistake too.

Exactly what this game needs MORE CHAOS TEAMS. (sarcasm)

How many types of new Orcs and Elves and Humans and Dwarves can we add? (more sarcasm)

I have always wanted some kind of Elves with Zombies kind of MASHUP. (I'm serious.)
Nothing like AG4 with no negatraits and an army of Regenerating meat shields.
The team would SUCK or be really good. IDK

And while we are at it. Space Marines. (sarcasm again)

It says the boodborn is capable of disemboweling an ogre with it's elongated bone spurs. I suspect they must come with claw and mighty blow.

Hopping onto this with the newest updated article. Pretty much confirms a big guy: The 'Bloodspawn'. Some quality art as well. The warrior giving the business to that undead pumpkin head with the ref looking on in horror is such quality.

I would expect the big guy to be an animal savagery yehtee with no disturbing presence for a 10k reduction

I doubt it. Khorne is a favorite for GW. My guess is that they want to make it a tier 1 team and make it the most pain inducing team at the same time.

Unchanneled Fury, Claw, Mighty Blow on the Blood Spawn
Mighty Blow on the warriors
Khorngors and/or marauders with frenzy
