Here’s the results.
At 46% are those who felt it’s a solid codex. This wasn’t my vote but the vote I figured would receive the most attention. I agree with this as well. There’s nothing over the top in the codex. Nothing that screams out at you as a must-have choice. Also, there’s no straight up poor choices as were present in the last codex either. In short, the codex is well-balanced.
Then at 21% are those who think it’s kick-ass. This was my choice. I think this vote comes with a bit of perspective. For me, I started using Chaos a bit over a year ago in that last abortion of a codex. That makes the new current amazing by comparison. However, I know many have played Chaos through various iterations and the infamous 3.5 codex. I know that codex is still held in very high regard and I can understand this new one not being seen as a match for what once was.
15% Of the voters felt it’s better than the last but still not good. I didn’t figure this vote would stand so high in the results. Again, a matter of perspective though. I suppose if you were expecting something on par with Necrons then you’d be disappointed, though you can’t argue it’s better than the last. The last handful of codices have been extremely strong so I can understand why people would vote for this option.
Closely behind that at 13% was the people who felt it is alright. This vote is really pretty similar to the previous 15%. Then 5% who think it just sucks. I can’t understand the thought of it sucking but hey, to each their own.
