Since we seem to be getting some buzz let's kick this off with what's going around so far (from BoLS' forums):


via Nostromodamus on 12-27-2014

One project that is more on the horizon is plastic Chaos Cult Troops. I can say that the Plague Marines are more bulky and tailored for the new bases. Standard 5 man squads per box with all weapon options and nice bits to spruce up the Champions.

2015 will be the year of supplements and campaigns. Dark angels will almost certainly feature in the next campaign which i heard quite possibly is called DarkStorm
~The opponents to the Dark Angels are said to be Crimson Slaughter

Regarding Codex Chaos Space Marines

-No Cult Marines in the Codex
-Few Rule changes
-Dataslates for Cult Marines, Terminators, Chosen ect. in White Dwarf
-One Chaos God per Issue (each with their own dataslates for Berzerker Termis, Plague Termis ect.)

via Steve the Warboss 1-9-2015

Further clarifications for CSM Cult Marines

-No own Profiles/Choices for Cult Marines in the Codex
-Cult Marines are "upgrades" for the most of the CSM Units

that would be cool. only annoying thing is that it will come out in 4-5 dataslates + codex + 2-3 faction add ons...100+ euros expensive shit.

I would rather just go back to the 4th ed codex than go through all that BS though.

Meh, 3.5 would work for me. So I have to buy a codex that doesn't have the rules I need, sounds great GW

Data slates are kinda underwhelming. Legion or god specific supplements would be awesome though assuming it isn't just rules for cult troops

Pfft, we've had our Codex ripped into three bits and gutted of special characters here on Titan. We were hit with a Master-Crafted Nerf Daemonhammer with Hammerhand and Force up before it was cool.

We found out how easy it was to find rules on the internet for free at the same time, snark.

From Darnok on Warseer:

One of my very reliable birdies told me to not expect a new CSM codex, but only a supplement. And while it is centered around Khorne (plus at least one new unit and new models in plastic), it is not about a Legion, but a renegade warband. This is a contradiction to the rumour in the OP by Steve the Warboss, and only one set of those rumours can be correct in the end.
Or it could be one of these two rumors now and another later. Who knows?

In the last week of March, GW will release a Codex for Khorne Warbands/Hordes.

It combines Khorne-themed CSM and daemon units. Formations, etc..

It is a one-week release with no new miniatures released for this new codex as such (but Zerkers, in all their old miniatures-glory, are actually in the Codex, no WD spin-offs).

The main purpose of this khorne codex is to ride in the slipstream of End Times 5, which will be released earlier in march, with the "headline"-release of the new Bloodthirster (builds 3 variants).

There is no "main" Codex CSM in 2015. There are no nurgle, tzeentch, etc. equivalents to this khorne one planned (yet), as it's mostly an End Times add-on to make the new Bloodthirster with all its variants work in 40K.
I know it is "cool" to not trust new members, but this one is spot on, as far as I know.

Love that comment at the end!

Hahahah! Yeah, us 40k fans distrust rumors that are more likely than not to be blatant bullshit because it's the "cool" thing to do. :eek:k:

That being said, it wasn't that long ago that we saw the potentially real cover of the KHORNE supplement, did we not? Don't have the time to dig through the history right now, but we all know the one. The "if dreams came true" supplement.

I'll be pretty pissed if the remaining armies don't get a 7th edition update in the form of a new book. Not because they will be any better or worse by virtue of their existence, but because for once in GW history we'll have all books (theoretically) on a more or less even playing field -- designed for the same edition of the game.

I remember that Khorne book, I was just thinking about it the other day! A small Khorne army is sitting infront of me right now haha.

Personally I don't believe the 40k rumors regarding a supplement for Khorne and no new 7th codex. Several reason for this:

1) There is a vast difference between 6th and 7th edition codexes, some being LoW additions and formations. I don't believe they will simply let that edition stand, as it is not on par with their new model for the game.

2) As Venomlust wrote, this is the exact same rumor that came up about a year ago. It doesn't make a lot more sense now than it did then.

3) I think they are confusing rumors for WHFB and 40K at this point.

4) There is a big interest in cult troops for the Chaos Space Marine line, and the army is pretty popular. In addition to new base sizes, I don't think they would squander the opportunity to sell repackaged models with bigger base sizes, along with the new models, that would never see the light of day without at least a supplement for each god. The current rumor simply says Khorne is in the works and no other - I simply don't believe that.

Until we get closer to the release-date, I call bollocks on the current rumors.
