Well, I said before that I would withhold judgment on the Tzeentch faction until I saw the whole roster. Now that it is here, what do I think?
Honestly? I have no idea. I am all at once excited, bemused, and disappointed. But perhaps that was Tzeentch's plan all along.
I think the demons look amazing, I think the faction mechanics fit with Tzeentch being the mischievous troll that he is, and I am sure Kairos' own mechanics will suit him well.
And yet... I feel like there is a hole in the roster and that hole is the warriors that are well... not there. What I mean is that I feel this roster does not have sustainability, even with the barriers that the units have. There are no hold the line units within it.
And yet what irks me the most is the reskin issue. Yes, I know the subject has been done to death but bear with me for a moment. Now from what I always thought, animations were always the most expensive part to consider when creating units (consider the whole Jabberslythe issue with the Beastmen). Yet with the Chaos Warriors, the animations were already there, so the only need was to change how they looked. I mean, look at the Cultist of Tzeentch, they have a unique look that fits well with the faction, why couldn't the same have been done for the warriors?
Do I think the issue will be addressed by CA, especially with the extra time they now have due to the delay? Maybe. But that is probably more a hopeful aspiration on my part than anything else. Which is a shame since all of the other factions shown thus far (Cathay, Kislev, and Khone) have been nothing short of amazing. I just hope the remaining factions (Nurgle, Slaanesh, and the Pre-order race) do not have the same issues as I feel Tzeentch does. Only time will tell I suppose.
