Chaos Centaurs??? whatchu say!!???
« on: March 15, 2007, 11:10:27 AM »
when were there chaos centaurs in 40k? If you read all of the races that are supposed to be included in the "lost and the damned" section, there is mention of Chaos Centaurs, but I can't find any posts about them and I've never heard of them before now. did someone on 40k online just make this army up or did they actually exist as a playable faction at some time??

cheers.

Well I don't remember them ever being in 40k, but they certainly used to be in fantasy.
They're basically the fast cavalry unit of the beastmen.
I had no idea they'd dissappeared from the lore.

it would be a pretty decent army idea.

I have only heard of them from this site. go to the 'The Armies of 40k' part of the forum. then look at what it says under the 'Lost and the Damned' link without clicking the link. it says chaos centaurs there. so, either someone made a mistake or there is a 'lost' army that is actually lost :-\

cheers.

Centaurs used to be in Fantasy and Also 40k.

 Not Bestigors, Centaurs. And they were still Chaos creatures.

In the 2nd ed chaos codex, you had 3 army lists Deamons, Marines and Beastmen and the later had mention of Centaurs. theres also mention of these in short stories from around the time of RT

thats kind of a let-down, I thought maybe I could fashion a small 500pt list of centuars using zoat models or something. I guess not.

Ok, welllllll  long story. I believe for a while they were considered Eldar till they finally seemed to be more chaos *Fluff loop hole?* however they have been officially listed as EXTINCT on the website and supposedly have been wiped out by the Space Marines. So they're gone.

Well no, they were never eldar, although you could include them in an old Eldar pirate list, but they were still Tyranids.
You could still get the zoats in the monster special of WD was it last year?
As for hte Chaos centaurs? No, they are quite gone. They were some sort of Dragon ogre I think, and are now long gone.

Lost Roads - finally released!

There was a short story done about Centaurs in the 40K universe in one of the novels put out by the Black Library. I have the book, but its been a long time since I read it, and I don't remember it. I think a marine crash landed on a world, and he befriended some mutants that were described as Centaurs, at the end of the story he is recovered and never mentions that there are mutant lifeforms on the world to prevent the Inq from coming to the world and exterminating the Centaurs.

There is a short story titled Children of the Emperor by Berrington J Bayley that features four legged humanoids, though never explicitly referred to as centaurs. A gaurdsman crash lands on a high gravity planet and is saved by Emperor worshipping 4 legged humans, mutants. Originally tech adepts from Mars, they were colonizing the planet when the system was swallowed up by a warp storm. Using the last of their resources they genetically modified their children to have 4 legs, so they could live on the planet. etc etc. Darkage technology is lost, emperor becomes a myth, some of the "centaurs" begin worshipping chaos.

The story is published in the short story collection let the galaxy burn

Around WD106 (preparing for Slaves to Chaos), there were rules for Chaos Warbands.  Now, if I'm not mistaken, chaos centaurs were being introduced at around the same time, and there were some options for including chaos centaurs in chaos warbands (which weren't even really army lists, and would lead to some horribly imbalanced fights).

But don't hold me to it-- that was a long time ago, and the WDs in question are long gone.  (That was a nice issue though-- first instance of the Emperor's Tarot in print.  "The Bolter.  The Emperor, reversed.")

Back then, there was a clear move to include any new fantasy elements as WH40K elements, with the expectation of conversions.  Harlequins, for instance, were introduced shortly after wardancers, and were an obvious analogue, even if they were accompanied by a boxed set (the first Eldar box set, actually).

Yeah, I had the idea you meant Zoats.  These existed in the Rogue Trader days (1st Edition WH40K) but I don't know if they stayed around longer than that.

I have discovered that Chaos Centaurs had stats, etc, in Warhammer Fantasy.  A boxed set came out with the new rules for Chaos Magic - and it included Chaos Centaurs.  Still not sure if they were in 40K, though.
