I truly don't get it. Why are people hyped up for these guys?

They literally just look like generic and boring cadians with spikes. Its like the most generic and PG rated chaos influence I've ever seen.

Third party companies have been making far more interesting traitor guardsmen for years. I just don't get it.

These aren't viable as traitor guardsmen for me specifically because they're wearing non-standard guard flakk armour, Cadian armour is generally accepted to be the "Standard" guard infantry kit so any traitor guardsmen in the galaxy are probably going to be wearing that basic kit, not whatever these guys are wearing.

Of course if you're looking for god specific or legion specific guard support elements you're better off going third party, but since I'm specifically looking for spikey cadians I'll obviously prefer the spikey cadians.

Also these guys specifically are proportioned like space marines LARPing as traitor guardsmen, they're Jacked.

Nufags who are excited for a repackaged monopose sprue that already came and went with BSF. They don't mind have zero options or that their models are going to all be identical clones with the same poses as everyone else's. Chaos cultists are one of the easiest thing to convert and people still gobble this shit up

Isn't that part of the appeal of traitor guardsmen, that they're only a few steps down the road to damnation and not full on warp-monsters?

Don't get me wrong, some of the models are crappy but I can understand the appeal of the aesthetic if nothing else.

Nice Imperial Storm Troopers bro.

Oh, what's that? You thought Chaos Guard wouldn't look like a bunch of deserters covered in spikes?

For the most part, Chaos Guard are like one step above cultists, and some times not even then. Why the fuck would CSM invest in shittier non-CSM troops beyond the bare minimum? Chaos Guard should look basic and mismatched as fuck. Your posts look like edgy Storm Troopers instead of Guardsmen mislead and turned with what ever they had on hand. Why should they have good or creative shit? They're literal bullet sponges at worst, possible aspirants at best.

Listen retard. The new traitor guard looks fucking perfect for what they're intended to be. A multipart vaguely spiky cadian plastic kit with 10 plain unique bodies ready to be built as is or customized (just like the new Krieg). They're supposed to be generic and that's a good thing.

Chaosfags have been waiting for fucking decades for a traitor IG plastic kit and you're going to pretend now those are bad when the BSF were widely praised except for not having more of them to make a R&H force?
GTFO contrarian poser.

Only the commisar and the ogryn that were in separate sprues. The troopers are brand new and look like a multipart kit like the new Kriegs.

The traitor IG troopers in BSF came in a big sprue mixed with other monsters and models that was later sold as the Servants of the Abyss kit.
>>
>>84482640
I think it's not as much the models as recognizing Traitor Guard as an actual army. These guys are supposed to be the majority of Chaos aligned enemies the Imperium faces, yet in the tabletop they're represented by the lame cultists in Chaos Marines codices.
After they released the new Tanith models you'd think they'd follow up with their most common opponents.

That said I agree third party manufacturers make much better traitor guard.

no they don't dipshit, some are all right for the look but nigga i expect fucking more from GW. there's something off, something fucking missing, somethings not fucking right and i think it's because the shit is lashed together, very fucking rigidly adheres to the cadian aesthetics but RANDOM bits.

this is a consistent fucking issue with chaos and it's driving me fucking mad, the new shit they're rolling out, how they're going to fuck up world eaters by making them brass with fucking red highlights. fucking hell the 8th ed release was a fluke i swear.

>just like the fucking kriegers
It's yet to be seen if they're actually properly customizable even then they're going to be over costed because of the melee options on the sprue. they're chaff units.

Ah, the mind of the uppity Karen-like consoomer manchild when reality doesn't give a fuck about their petty whims.

They're not "monopose". The arms, heads and accesories are optional just like most GW kits in the last years just like Skitarii or Krieg.

A friend of mine is excited for the kitbash potential to use the more ramshackle arms for Savlar Chem Dogs.

Another friend had some of the BSF ones he painted in a French Revolution theme and wants a full kill team.

I know that these would be the only GW infantry models for a Traitor Imperialis Militia and Cults army in HH that would require no conversion at all, discounting the commissar.

And they're something that's part of the lore and BL novels all the time, but woefully underrepresented on the tabletop. I bet there's gonna be quite a few converted Blood Pact armies soon.

I'm just interested in the rules because I love the 3rd ed Lost and the Damned, and it's both bringing that playstyle back into 9th and will make it easier to convince some people in my FLGS to try some 3rd edition with the books I've been recently collecting.

They look visually compatible with Krieg parts and weapons, so there's going to be many ways to customize them.
They already have Legends rules in 9e that you can see here:

But maybe they'll get new rules in the future Imperial Guard codex as a type of regiment. It makes sense as a way to have all the other vehicle datasheets in the same place.

Meanwhile i'm going to mix them with my BSF traitor IG in a Kill Team rooster maxing out the options.

You aren't paying attention, are you? Everything in that box, save the Commissar and Ogryn are new sculpts, and they specifically said these are plastic multipose kits, which makes sense because it's KILL TEAM. Every other new kit introduced, like the Sisters, the Krieg and the Corsairs were all new sculpts, this is that for this box.

are you fucking blind? The chest plates are very different. The traitor guard have a much rounder chest that loops under arm and extends further to the waist. While the cadians have tits. The shoulder pads are the closest but look more like the new krieg models chest plates. The traitor guard also have armoured wrists.
>>84482760
The Oathbreaker stl posted by that anon looks far closer to the traitor guard than Cadians do. Which is what he said doesn't look like Cadians therefore the gw ones are superior.

>>84490661
which bit?
>>

>clearly the main point of the models is the idea that they are guard deserters and their armor is meant to look like the remaining pieces of boring standard issue armor
and I completely agree, it's why I like the models. But my original post was directed at the anon who claimed the gw one was fine but the Oathbreaker one wasn't fine due to the fact that it doesn't resemble the Cadians. Despite the fact that both look more similar to each other than Cadian flakk. I'm not saying they don't look like traitor guard, I'm saying by his standards they don't look like traitor guard any more than the stls he's poo-pooing.
>>
>>84490794
Wrong question.
Chaos in 40k is the ultimate expression of human sins. The more you give yourself to base bloodlust, excess, despair, betrayal... the more you feed it and the more it owns you.

And soldiers even in RL are always very close to the edge of those. Now add powerful beings like daemons and corrupted humans and basic troopers becoming chaos bitches is routine.
>>
>>84487841
Oh hey, official confirmation that autoguns are basically the same power as 7.62 NATO. Since autoguns and lasguns are the same strength, it makes me wonder where people get the figure of "a lasgun is like a .50 BMG round bro, it'll vaporize you"

Autoguns have always been 7.62 equivalents (imagine shooting 5.56 against a fucking ork, lol)
But lasguns vary a lot, and some patterns have controls to change the strengh at the cost of having less shots per battery pack. It's a lot more unclear, but i'll agree that the basic IG lasgun should fire 7.62 equivalents too as a base line.

>>
>>84491165
You headcanon is wrong in a galaxy spanning empire where technology is guarded by a religious cult that has been mass producing shit for thousands of years on the basis of a template system left over from before the fall of mankind. The imperium was conquering pocket empires armed with lasguns, rhinos and predators in the Great Crusade.

Cultural and local variations are to be expected, but a base line must definitely exist. Specially when the 40k IG was deliberately created in the aftermath of the Horus Heresy.

Pardon my autism if that is satire.
Shouldn't small online webstores be absolutely livid when something like the traitor guards are being released and especially when it means 40k will have rules for them?
I think it means that they will get customers looking for alternative miniatures to have their army be more unique or just anti Citadel miniature autists or more reasons. It means sales in the end if I recall correctly.

They look pretty good. Not my cup of tea, but totally understand if someone loves them.
For me it is always about the Vraksian Traitor guard with their bags over their heads or gas masks.
Madrobotminis makes some close enough looking proxies for those kinds of miniatures.

I don't recall AnvilIndustries having similar miniatures nor do I think Victoriaminis has such either.

The round look is going to be the new standard, they're remaking the entire Cadian line in new proportions. It's going to be a dual system release, doubling as 30k Imperial Army.

Vraks renegades were militia/PDF, not guard. That's why they only have uniforms and weapons, composite armour kit wasn't part of their equipment and they had to use improvised furnace plate armour and hood rigged gas masks.
>>
>>84493170
>Vraks renegades were militia/PDF, not guard.
My mistake then.
I guess what makes a traitor guard different from a renegade chaos militia is through looking more uniform and better equipped?
>>
>>84493198
>>84493018
Check Davidkdesigns >>84487841
>>
>>84493198
Yes, same as any PDF and guard. With very rare exceptions like Cadia, Krieg and Catachan, the world's own military doesn't have to deal with much and really only has the basics, with maybe a few hundred kits of carapace and a couple tank regiments. Think real world armies with some 40k tech. Guard has to fight space uglies, so they get sci-fi-ium armour for everyone and guns that actually can take out orks, nids and other sci-fi soldiers. Of course, guard also gets a lot of vehicles for combined arms, and militias won't have that.
>>
>>84493198
nta, but yeah.
Guardsmen are supposed to be way better troops with better equipment, with Stormtroopers/Scions/etc being the elite.
Planetary Defence Forces and Militia can vary wildly between worlds.
Cultists are just deranged mixed rabble of varied quality down to mutants and beastmen (these are the type deployed as meatbags from CSM ships lower decks)
>>
>>84493102
That's pretty dope. Guard need a proper update rather than just the sprue they got.
>>
>>84493325
>That's pretty dope. Guard need a proper update rather than just the sprue they got.
I'm pretty sure that the new Cadian sprue just being heads and bits has practically confirmed that the guardsmen are not getting a full update in a long time. I am hoping they get updated and stay at a scale similar to the plastic kriegers but I am not so sure.
It still impresses me how those different heads really improve the overall Cadian bodies.
>>
>>84482640
>The guard traitors look like guard with added bits showing their new allegiance
What did you expect?
>>
>>84493391
I disagree, it being specifically just heads and some extra gear makes it compatible with a new base kit. They'll simply replace the 3e mould with a new one in the same style as the KT guys, and the extra bits (as well as GSC upgrades) will carry over. This is an important distinction from the update they did to old 3e marines back in the day, when the new bits were cast in the same mould as the old squatty bodies.

How about just saying "I don't like these" and accepting it like a mature adult instead of screaming and shitting yourself? If you don't like them, don't buy them.

i described my fucking issues, "they're based on the cadians, they're generic generally the don't have a good cohesive feel" all of that
that's an aesthetic complaint and that's the issue, that's a reasonable fucking issue they sell only models.

Fuck do i need to point at the primaruis kart and break out fucking design laws or someshit to explain why it's bad? it's art technically, use your fucking eyes, have some fucking taste.
Let's point to say the new praetors as control, the fucking weird executioner who can't fit into any army, with his weird fucking stormcast armor? is that a problem or should i just accept it, act like an adult (because we all know adulthood is acting like a 18th century child?

well let's get into more detail. the commissar is gay, always has been. pose is half assed, limp and uninspiring. there's a reason why no one fucking bought him.

The other guys have some things i like, the butcher is reasonable for a chaos character. the biggest problem is we are overflowing with rabble already, we have chaos cultists released we have access to GSC, necromunda and cadians already all for the same price or less.
If they wanted to make a generic LnD army they could, and frankly they ought to have differentiated them from the cadians and the chaos rabble to make them not compete
but what we have is random ork armor bolted on to shit, spikes and bullshit. because that's all chaos is now, brass trim and random shit.
most notably they're built to be skrimish units and to stand out and are not conducive to fucking fielding them as intended price or design wise.
same with the kriegers

Autoguns and lasguns are only one strength less than a bolter, which fires a fragmenting armour-penetrating RPG rocket that can vapourise a man's head or hollow out their entire torso. 40K game stats are the broadest of brushes, they put weapons into general categories they don't imply that everything within a category is literally the same "power level".

Autoguns work like regular guns because they're regular guns. Lasweapons cauterize, burn, blister, and even explosively vapourise the moisture within flesh. The tradeoff is they don't impart as much kinetic energy and so lack the stopping power of single higher-caliber autogun hits, they probably aren't going to cause someone to bleed-out from an otherwise minor wound, and they're shit as stealth weapons. Just because a lasgun isn't a bolter doesn't mean it's basically the same as an autorifle.

From memory at least two of the Guant's Ghosts books deal with resistance forces on Chaos-occupied worlds, the issue with longer-term cults is that Chaos corrupts by its mere presence - you don't have to believe in the Chaos Gods to start sprouting tentacles and extra eyes if they decide to set up shop on your world, and no doubt faithful souls are extra-tasty to daemons. Between ritual sacrifices, crushing initial organised resistance, and general contact-corruption the chances of there being a significant Imperial-aligned faction on any world Chaos has held for long is going to be pretty small.

That said, I kinda like the idea of some tribe of degenerate muties clinging desperately to half-remembered myths of the Holy Godman from Terra Wotwas, especially if their story ends with them going out to joyously greet the Imperial "liberators" and immediately getting broiled by every flamer in line of sight.

Not exactly anyone, Cadians, Catachans and Elysians are supplied by forge worlds. As a contrast, Krieg and Vostroya have their own production lines and heavy industry, so they make almost all of their gear themselves and their PDF is equipped in the exact same way as their Guard regiments.

Cultists are also sometimes traitor guard regiments. See the old Siege of Vraks campaign.
>>
>>84510586
Those were explicitly not Guard. Read the actual book and not some misremembered snippets on the internet, the rebels were PDF and militias raised from the world's civilians. They were space amazon warehouse wageslaves, not soldiers.
>>
>>84508552
Those are all outliers - Cadia requires such a huge volume of equipment only forge worlds could ever meet their demand, Catachan is a jungle hellhole where any significant industry is basically impossible and also exports a fuckton of soldiers, and Elysians need complex equipment like grav-chutes for every soldier anyway so they may as well get everything from the same place.

The fluff repeatedly points out how low-tech and easy to produce flak armour is, and I don't think it's some sort of mysterious coincidence that up until GW got lazy and decided to streamline their product range into 'oops, all Cadians' basically every single world's regiments all wore unique uniforms and armour.

GW is lazy nowadays and whenever they release something its intended to able able to be converted to something else to spare themselves the trouble of creating models for each faction.

It's extremely obvious when you see that guardsman with the neat hair at the bottom who looks like a cosplayer.
I do like the models though, especially the color scheme

>>84482640
I'd think they'd be OK as far as designs, if they had ANY degree of customization.

There's a reason everyone buys third party in component bits, and that's because while a head or a gun might be slightly better then gw stock, enough to justify the buy for conversion or kitbashing, the overal model 90% of times is shit.
You can't alter it easily, you can't personalize it, adapt it, make it anything but the sculpters own. Moreover, since they're typically given less effort, things match up worse, you can't swap bits as easily, or work them into another model.
Say what you want about >>84482640 but all of the weapons and many of the bodyparts can be swapped out, changed around, or altered to allow for personalization. To do that requires more attention to detail, to get everything nice and uniform in quality and configuration.
Third party miniatures can, and often do have cool bits, or the occasional good model, but they're almost always below forge world tier quality when you get to full sculpts. And I'm saying that as a person who buys third party.
I wouldn't buy those models.

Here's an argument you might accept.

The fact there are official traitor guard models means they'll be getting mechanical support.

You don't HAVE to use the official models unless you're in a GW sponsored tournament and even then, there might be some wiggle room for conversion/model swapping within the citadel line so even if you think the models are meh, which is a perfectly reasonable position.
>>
>>84512544
You absolute colossal fucking idiot.

The volume of games workshop releases, new kits and fodder for conversions and kitbashes has never been higher.

Dark Eldar went 12 years without a Codex published, they had zero models released in that time, Battle Sisters went 15 years (outside of White Dwarf Supplements) between Codex Witchhunters and Codex Adeptas Sororitas

Debate the minutiae of the things they do release when it comes to quality because they certainly do miss, but claiming that Games Workshop are "lazy" and don't want to release a kit for literally every single possible kind of army man they can is just fucking stupid. Go back 15-20 years and you go entire quarters with a signfiicant release across their entire range being "Gimli Looking Left" and maybe a random selection of blister packs that let you build one of the 5 special weapon troopers in your army book.

10-15 years ago also saw the total destruction of the specialist game studio and the withdrawal of support from everythingbut 40K/WHFB/LOTRBG and a further reduction in releases. If someonw had told me in 2008 that good plastic mini support for Blood Bowl, Necromunda and an Epic Scale game was all going to be a reality in 10 years I would have laughed in their faces.
