codex: chaos legions / rumour comment

Bell of Lost Souls posted a small set of codex: chaos legions rumours from ghost21.  Whilst its very early days in the rumour cycle to say what is true or false, this one caught my eye:

"khornate chrono gladiators"

...What The?  Where does "chrono" come in to things?  Khornate gladiators, sure.  But why are they associated with "time" specifically?

Other highlights for me included "minor chaos powers" being in there and dark mechanicus.  But to be honest, all of the rumours presented sound juicy to me!  Exciting times.

I think this is just mindless wish listing with no real substance behind.

Chrono-gladiators are cyborgs with a limited lifespan programmed in, and only killing/battle/bloodshed extends that time, hence the chrono- part. So they lust for battle and blood to stay alive. Originally associated with the AdMech, though some dark mechanicus linking them with Khorne sounds appropriate.

I think Ghost21 has a pretty OK track record. Could be something true behind this.

Though I think it should be spellt Khorn Khrono Gladiators. Khorn demands more K!!! :)

Hi Adam,
I agree -- a lot of it will undoubtably be wish-listing.

But if we were to create a codex, I suspect we'd start out with a with list and "tame" it downward to acceptable levels.

And Flekkzo does point to a solid track record by Ghost21. So is it right? No. But I would contend there would be some core nuggets of truth behind the rumour... and I'm also guilty of wishful thinking!
