    That's going to be a Tzeentch DLC centerpiece for sure.

    And yes I know it is unaligned in 8e but they have kinda made it a Tzeentch thing lately with the only mark it can take being Tzeentch's in recent games. Also just look at the thing.

    In AoS it also can be unaligned.

    I know you can take it with no mark whatsoever and it is in the StD list. But tellingly you also can't take it with the Chaos Undivided mark. It's Tzeentch or nothing. And of course you can also take it with a Tzeentch army.

    I'm aware that making it a unaligned WoC unit makes sense and the WoC deserve all the love they can get but I REALLY think that it and the Slaughterbrute will be Tzeentch and Khorne centerpiece units. And there are some more beasties that the WoC can still get.

    Maybe they'll give it to Tzeentch but I would not be surprised if CA keep that one as an Undivided unit and give it to the Warriors of Chaos in a lord pack, same for the Slaughter brute.

    I just hope that it will be available to both.

    It would be nice if WoC got more black and gray toned versions of the Vortex Beast and Slaughterbrute but I'm just not expecting it right now. Maybe if you own the DLC they come with WoC also get them. That was kind of my old proposal for Monogods where their DLC would also add any appropriate units to WoC, DoC and BoC.

    At the very least I expect we will get a WoC DLC with Chimera, their Chaos Shrine, and Chaos Ogres, the hopefully they can get some more stuff like Flayerkin and Great Spined Chaos Beasts to make up for some of the units potentially lost to monogods (which is only about 4 units)

    It will be a fantastic centrepiece unit for one of the Tzeentch LPs. Just as planned! 😌

    Yap WoC can be happy if they get 1 LP and there are more than enough cool Unaligned centrepiece units CA can use. The ones you listed would all be fantastic.

    I also really really want the Giant Chaos Spawn!


    Would be very fitting for Sayl the Faithless.

    Yeah its a great looking monster

    Imagine if Ca implemented that whenever it fights a enemy unit of melee infantry for one minute straight it would mutate them into a unit of full hp chaos spawn witch would turn on their former comrades.

    Or something like it, i would just love the famous transformative powers of Tzeentch to be implented in a unique way in game 3.


    GuO STOMP!

    What? Why? What's wrong with red and blue colors?

    Chimera

    Meh.

    Chimera is a great centrepiece unit like it or not.

    Then we also have the following possible Centrepiece units…
    - Chaos Shrine
    - Giant Chaos Spawn
    - Spined Chaos Beast

    And CA can also add the Basilisk if they want to. It’s kinda a Zoat 2.0 situation here.

    Then Chaos Ogres and Flayerkin as cheap filler unit…

    Just pick your 3-4 units.

    Just to visually distinguish them in the different rosters. Doesn't seem to be a very strange concept to me.

    What do you have against the Chimera? I find them to be a kind of Undivided Chaos staple.

    But there are plenty of giant monster options for WoC outside of MVB and Slaughterbrute. I'm more interested in seeing a unit of warriors riding unaligned daemonic mounts to make up for the potential lack of monstrous cavalry if Skullcrushers are Khorne only personally.

    I don't see the need for that. It seems weird to me that people are that obsessed with colors, especially when it comes to Chaos.

    It looks boring to me, especially when you compare it to such beaty as Mutalith Vortex Beast.

    Oh, that would be absolutely horrible.

    Tzeentch needs some fancy centrepieces for 2-3 LPs tho… and as a core race, he has the priority over WoC.

    WoC have enough other fancy choices and really don’t need the Vortex Beast.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see some new units invented by GW.

    I'm expecting a Mortis effect for the basic one and a Chaos Spawn summon for the RoR

    I feel like if it came as part of a Tzeentch LP buying it could also unlock it for WoC.
