Until GW OFFICIALLY announces a codex release, they are all just rumours that arent worth crap.

I wouldnt expect to see a new CSM codex till at least 2012.

Or DE for that matter... though if you do maybe you'll be happy after all. Which means that patience with GW eventually pays of,.... eventually.

Dear lord if hope they do a better job with it than good ol' Gav did.

I am rooting for Necron and DE codices before I complain for a new Chaos one. That just ain't fair.

i dont know about waiting for gw to release will necessarily pay off because look what they did with the 4th edition codex they took are daemons they took are legion specific rules and the one thing khorne should really be pissed off about is some of the special charge rules like blood lust and chain axes. so i mean maybe they will cheese us out like they did to blood angels and IG so lets just wait and see, oh and to answer your question i dont think GW will be coming out with a new chaos codex any time soon and ive heard rumors about legion specific rule books like how they have the space marines are split up there will be good dedication books so khorne Nurgle Slaanesh and Tzeentch. but that is just what i heard for all i know they could screw us more with the new one

Rumors for Legion specific rules are baseless - it is very LIKELY that it will NEVER happen. As cool as it would be, they will never do it.

yea thats what is runnig through my mind, hopefully they atleast allow us to take daemons as allies and get legion specific rules back into the codex.

im hoping for a 5th ed csm codex next year, late next year mind you
only background work is so far being done, even if we do see the rate of codexes accelerated then 2012 would still be the earliest

Rumors for Legion specific rules are baseless - it is very LIKELY that it will NEVER happen. As cool as it would be, they will never do it.
Not quite baseless per se, the design team have said before they would like to do it one day but weren't sure if it would ever happen.
I wouldn't be surprised if they got round to it one day as it's a project that wouldn't necassarily need many new models

Part of me hopes they will do this; part of me is afraid they will start off with Khornate Bezerkers for the Win!, probably release Papa Nurgle's expensive metal miniature road show, and never actually finish.

If they do finish there will then be 5 times as many complaining about CSM Codex threads.

If I were chaos I would be praying that I didn't get a 5th Ed codex. Chances are if you do you will get it only months before 6th and then you will be in the same possition.

If they were to make a radical change between editions making the Codex unplayable (i.e. 2nd edition to 3rd edition) I could see the need but if they don't then there's overwhelming need to have every army have a current edition Codex- it would be nice for it to be so, and I definitely think they should make it so that all armies relying on a 3rd edition codex get a 5th edition but it's not a necessity.

Just accept that not every army will have a 5th edition codex before 6th edition comes out.

You mean in a similar style as what they did with WHFB?
