40k Starter Set contents leaked

Yes Dark Angel: You get ALL of the Plasma.
You've got to the love the lads that dislike GW's strict silence on upcoming releases stance. Thanks to them we now know what's in the starter set. As previously suspected, it's Chaos and DA although Chaos only get 7 Marines but at least they get a Dread and some Cultists to hit behind.

Taken from B&C

DA has :

Captain Balthasar(with power armor, not in TDA)
Librarian(with power armor)
Tactical Sqaud(10 men, with 1 plasma cannon, 1 plasma gun)
Deathwing Squad(5 men, with storm bolters, no Stormshield)
Ravenwing Squad(3 bikes)

Chaos part:

Lord(in power armor)
Chaos Dread(with tl-melta and DCCW)
Chosen(6 men, with power maul, power fist and lightning claw)
Cultists(20 men, half with ccw and pistol, the other half have assault rifle)

So what do you make of this? The loyalist Marines are again fairly heavily favoured in this army-wise but with the opportunity to carve up the DA, other Chaos players must surely be considering getting one for themselves.

I'm looking forward to bulking up my Emperor's Children with Termies, Bikes and having a big screen of Cultists to march behind. And hopefully that plastic Dread won't look as bad as the previous metal one did - that was almost as bad as some of the Jacks in Warmachine, ffs. Spikes and pink armour: here we go.

Just spotted Faeit212's update on it with more detailed descriptions of the model's equipment. If anyone can read Chinese and is able to decipher it to confirm what stuff is then that would be useful...
