Hello there one and all

Currently I'm getting together my Slaaneshi chaos renegade army and putting together my army list.

I have decided to take a squad of Chosen Chaos Marines over Terminators.

My question is regards to the Aspiring champion. Now, for normal squads the Aspiring Champion can take a Plasma Pistol and Power Fist at cost.

However, according to the codex, an Aspiring Champion in an chosen squad can't? It lists that 1 guy can take a heavy bolter etc and up to 4 marines 'may take one of the following 4 options'.

So does that specifically mean that 4 Marines including the Aspiring Champion can take 1 of each of option i.e can replace his Plasma Pistol but not his cc weapon or can 4 of in fact take 2 of the options if replacing their bolt pistols and cc weapons?

The example of a chaos army a few pages before shows a squad of Chosen Marines with an Aspiring Champion with Plasma Pistol and a Power Fist.

I went to my local store and the guy in there was like yeah that's fine, but i'm not so sure. He put it down to bad English but if you take the way in which it is written as it is then the Champion can only take one option as well as the other guys.

Hope you can shed some light on this guys and girls.

Shit. I didn't notice that, and I armed my Chosen AC with a Plasma Pistol & a Powersword. In regards I'd say it's a typo, in that they either forgot to add the Chosen AC options list or they didn't have enough room to put it in. so I wouldn't worry about it.

It would be more on an error in the Reference army and not a typo.

I think it's a pretty big boo boo and in a proper game I'm not sure if you would be allowed that Champion with both options.

It is a little weird as I thought that an Chosen AC would have had better options than one in a regular squad.

I agree, it's quite the error on the writter's part for letting something like that through. The only way to find out for sure if my Chosen AC is legal is to play a game with them, sadly I know no one around me that plays TT. I'm also in the process of repaint my entire army so by the tyime I'm done with them I'm sure the Codex: Chaos Legions will be out.

Yes, Gav Thorpe should have known better!

Eh, a new Codex is coming out? Really ... Aw ffs, why does this alway's happen to me ...

This happened to me last time ... I've bought 2 chaos codex's and not played a game yet using either :furious:

It won't make the existing Chaos Codex obsolete will it?

I've only heard rumors that Codex: Legions is in the works. As far as I've heard 'Legions' will be based on the original Traitor Legions (hence the name) unlike the current Chaos 'dex which is based on the Chaos Renegades, so no it will not make the current codex obsolete. unfortunately it won't be until 2010 when we hear if 'Legions' is for real or not.
