That would be like all my christmasses come at once.

I really preferred the old codex, although the new one allows you to field competitive armies etc to my mind it just lacks soul.

Do you really think they'll be a new Chaos codex seems one come out last year? I really doubt it, but more focus on the warbands would be cool. Especially for someone new to Chaos like myself as the main ones I.E Black Legion, Emperor's Children you hear about all the time but would like more history and new information

Haven't heard this but it would piss me off if they did. Even though my primary army is chaos, other armies need updating first. Dark Eldar are dated as are Space Wolves. The current Chaos codex is barely a year old, so if this is true then GW's release schedule is even more broke than I thought.

Jervis Johnson has said that they will do the Cults in their own books in the future for sure but that it is still a long way off as other codices need attention first.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Beat me to it Wraith. I've heard the same thing. There will eventually be some Chaos Legion specific codices. Most speculation puts Death Guard as the first one to release, but that's entirely unconfirmed. Most people think Death Guard will be first because of all of the hype about them right now. There have been lots of stories written about DG and FW made DG termies and Plague Marines before any other legion troops.

We can only wait and hope that they don't shelve the idea.

Agreed. Jervis spoke to us at the UKGT. Although he feels that at some point it would be enjoyable to visit the "Legions" again. Perhaps GW resources could be better focused in other areas. This is not to mean that they wont do a legions book. However it might not be a high priority.
