A lot of the wilder rumors come from theDarkGeneral, who seems to be yanking everyone's chain.

OP in the starter set thread said these would be in the starter set, according to one of his sources. The source is actually named in the other thread, I'm just too apathetic to copypasta it here. Besides, the starter set thread is worth taking a look at if you haven't seen it already.

Sorcerer

CSM squad
Cultists
Posessed
Dreadnought
I, personally, would LOVE for this to be true.

EDIT: I do recall an earlier conversation in which it was discussed that eldar would make more sense than chaos, but I'll still leave this here for the benefit of newcomers.

boobs. that is all.

Again, Beasts of War stated unequivocally that Cultists would NOT be in the Starter. While you should always season rumours to taste, the odds of them coming out with a categorical firm statement and being wrong is...unlikely...

Not my seasoning. Quoted verbatum.

at the same time, though, it doesn't surprise me.

EDIT: if you'd like, I can retcon the cultists from my quote, or at least attach the BoW statement.

I don't see retconning as necessary - it's more my thinking that...well, if one source says all those things, and another (possibly more reliable) source says one of those is wrong and makes no comment on the rest, maybe the whole rumour was wrong?

I'd prefer to give the rest the benefit of the doubt. The rest is still at least possible, as evidence to the contrary can not be concretely inferred and as such is inconclusive.

unless, of course BoW--or any more reliable source than that found in the starter set thread--says otherwise or the product itself is released and contradicts the statements of the source cited in the starter set thread.

boobs. that is all.

Bindi Baji has put up a rumour in the 6th ed thread relating to the codex release - 6th ed is about 1 month away and the codex shortly after. He has been a reliable source on the forum, so I give it credence!

Agreed, he wouldn't post something definitive unless it were verifiable fact.
