Default Come In Chaos Number Five

So my fellow forumites, I have a question for you.

Will there ever be a 5th Chaos God introduced and if there was, what would he/she/it represent and how would he/she/it 'fit in' with the rest of Chaos and Warhammer?

Personally I doubt there ever will be but if there was I think maybe making it more elemental rather than based on emotions might be a way to go.

I don't think so. The closest there ever has been to one is Malal/Malice: http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Mali...nor_Chaos_Gods

Malice is an entity worshipped as the Renegade God of Chaos and Hierarch of Anarchy and Terror. The Renegade Chapter Sons of Malice are among his followers.

Malal was really cool, and I intend to do a Sons Of Malice CSM army at some point (probably either using GK rules or models... probably just models).
It was a shame GW lost the rights to Malal... he would have added some seriously cool side fluff to the pantheon.

How did they lose the rights to Malal (?_?)

I forget... something like a comic strip developing the character to the point where they owned almost all the IP about Malal, and GW being unwilling to pay to get access to it.

This Mal guy sounds cool. Pity GW don't come up with their own version of Malal. Seems like there is room for another god.

He's the hush hush god in the CSM book: are a few discreet references to him (if you read between the lines) and the Sons of Malice did have an entry in the old dex, pretty cool colour scheme too: quarters of black/white.
