Im not sure how validity there is in this and wouldn't be all too surprised if this was trully false, so take god LD50 dosage of some salt IMO, I will dig deeper into this as much as possible, but I may find nothing I may be a former analyst, but even we run into trouble in the research department.
Anyway just veiw the article below I provied, it is literally everyone's favorite author completely raggin on ghost 21's rumours that he reports on. He is claiming most of what he says is wrong and complete BS, I find it a lil hgard to believe, because as far as I have seen many of Ghost's rumours are typically on spot with few deviations. Well make your own assumption.

The more rumours I check out, the more I see that are clearly false.
"Ghost21" seems to be the one spouting the most nonsense. Whether I was privy to actual Codex rumours or not is pretty irrelevant when there are several points I can flat-out say "Nope" to, in regards to how the IP department explains the fluff to us, and when the rumours are pretending to use characters that the codices are essentially not allowed to touch / wouldn't use without asking us what those characters' fates actually are.
There's even been several people at GDUK this year saying Mat Ward specifically said he's not writing to the Chaos Codex, yet ghost21 insists he is.
Seriously, don't get your hopes up over his rumours.
I'm not exactly sure what to say to that one... regardless.
If he is who he says he is, why take such a hard ass attitude?
He could friendly say "nope", or "I dont think so" or in fact I invite him to come here and talk it over in PM. I mentioned the red angel and little horus (it could have been some guys conversion but he was fairly confident he would make it ).
And if he says who he says he is, we've actually met at those IP meetings.
oh and one last thing writers are told who dies n who doesn't not the other way around

I'm not taking any attitude, really. I'm only pointing out the rumours I know are either false, or exceedingly unlikely to bear fruit.
Bear in mind how anyone in the company hears X or hears Y, from sources A, B and C. I'm not - and will never - share what I have or haven't heard about codex or army book development. Just making that clear. No one in my position would. I don't even hint whether I know anything. I say nothing about it. I like my career and have no interest in losing it.
However, purely as a member of the Heresy team and someone who suckles directly from the core lore sources, some of those rumours are either patently false, or ring hollow with how the IP seems to be presented / was explained to several of us / has been mentioned as being presented in the future.
This is what I said on B&C in my original comments on the subject. Before anything gets out of hand, I'd like to make it clear that I was specifically talking about a couple of points, most notably HH characters in the codex:
"For the record, the Red Angel showing up would surprise me just as much as the separated Renegade/Legion codices, since he's showing up in the Heresy in ways even we've not fully decided yet (we only recently decided who he was), and the IP department are fully aware of it, having been at* the meetings."
(*or privy to)
I'm not making any comment on the other stuff. If I happened to be friends with people at head office and interacted with them professionally and/or personally (which I am, and do) I'd still say nothing. Which is the same thing I'd say if I knew nothing at all. I like my job, hence why I have no interest in risking it.
Purely as an HH writer, I'd be - shall we say - stunned to see certain characters show up in the next Chaos codex, especially when we've only just decided who they are, and their fates aren't decided. That just doesn't strike me as likely.
Here is the link for the source, sorry this Faiet guy never provides a freakin source for his information.
