Red thirst / Black rage fluff is still the same
Keen on blood ritual to transfert blood of the Primarch.
NEW fluff about what happen after the hive fleet / Khorne thing.
They slipped that Sanguinus is in statis/bad shape state.

Same old, 10 comps with 100 but they are less than 1000 these days.
During the description it seem that Primaris are integrated in Normal codex organisation.
Some codex update since big G came back: Comp can get boosted by reserve company.

Successor chapters get a special Relic but can't use BA one. (So they get only one ?)

Edit : More details on the sanguinus part :

-Someone on twitch asked if : Sanguinus could have a Jet pack (he meant meph off course)
Then the design studio guy started with "i don't understand the pun" then "he can't because is dead" and finally after a bit of bla bla :"
being in stasis (bite his lips and hesitate) he's in bad shape"

exact phrase is : "stasis thing....is in a mess in a bad way" 47 min of the stream
