Fresh from the depths of /tg/ this rumor has been posted. Due to it's anonymous nature please take with very liberal amounts of salt until we can know more.

Good news, bad news time!

From Dakka:
THIRD UPDATE!
After seeing the following post on Faeit212 (http://natfka.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/khorne-codex-supplement-with-cover-art.html) I asked my source if he could coment on its authenticity, he said the rules were all wishlisting but the cover image is legit, he sent me the following image as proof:

Real supplement, but (most likely) fake rules.

That would be better than a jar of weed. Please, be it real. It would be the answer to our chaotic prayers: a book for every god. Plese, please please...
Please gods let this be true. Drop pods that squish stuff instead of magically flying off to the side.
So to add some confusion to this, the art featured as the cover is a colored version of this:


This original image is by an artist who has done some art for GW before: http://1mpact.deviantart.com/#/art/Bers-370495987?hf=1

So this is possibly a real cover, or someone got very creative and took the time to color the original art to make this.

Like I said, take with a LOT of salt until we can learn more.

Awesome! If real, that is. Those Nurgle models sound interesting (As a Nurgle guy myself, of course).

Question, what does clam pack refer to? Or does that just mean finecast since those come in clam-esque containers.
ermahgerd that is cool. I told you that it was going to happen. Anyway I will be soo getting this. All holy to the Choas gods for giving us this.

x2

Currently losing my shit. Bloody dreams of carnage possibly coming true? I choose to believe!
I may be wrong, but haven't Games Workshop said they aren't doing God-themed supplements? I'll believe this when I see more of this.
I think the supplement cover seems pretty legitimate, however all the info that came along with it sounds like totally bull. I think that someone has got a hold of the cover and written a load of crap to go along with it.

Correct me if I am mistaken, but none of the previous supplements have had further model releases with them. Therefore I am skeptical about the release of models as well.

Will be very happy if there are supplements released for each chaos god, after all, it would make a lot of sense to do so...

Clam packs are those plastic blister packs that models like the new Space Marine Librarian come in.

I don't recall seeing them say that, but I could have missed something.

I'm advocating salt until we see other sources chime in on this to give us some verification, but that's my policy on rumors anyways.

A very good policy haha
Ah, thanks Zion. That should have occurred to me, haha.
If true, I might take the plunge on a WE force and paint them up in the old school blue and white.
If this turns out to be true I may sacrifice next doors cat to the ruinous powers in thanks. In fact, I may just sacrifice the bloody thing anyway if it digs up any more of my garden. Anyone know where I can buy fish-scented landmines?
If this is true then *deep breath* IT"S ABOUT FUCKING TIME! Seriously well done on GW finally realising that this needs to be done and will sell well.

I am most looking forward to seeing what the Nurgle offering looks like.
I think it's like this even more if they made these potential codices harken back to the original realms of chaos. Make it 2 supplements:

"Codex Chaos: The forces of destruction and desecration
Khorne & Nurgle"


And

"Codex Chaos: the forces of madness and corruption
Tzeentch & Slaanesh"


I'm sure they would rather do 4 separate ones to sell more copies though.

Clam Pack refers to the 3 or for part plastic model.
With the quality of current sculpts I can't wait to see a (unlikely or not) new sculpt for the Berzerkers or "Champs. of Khorne."
Correct me if I am mistaken, but none of the previous supplements have had further model releases with them. Therefore I am skeptical about the release of models as well.
I don't think the models are directly released along the supplement, if it is true. There have been rumors of updated cult troops for some time now (updated Berzerkers models, resin Thousand Sons and Noise marines, instead of kits) and they could potentially use the codex to raise awareness on the new models. One supports the other, and that sort of thing.

I am sceptical regarding the plague terminators (as they are already available via Forgeworld) and the plague marines (as they were recently updated) however. The rest I can believe in - Especially the droppod one, as it has never made any sense that Chaos haven't had those in the tabletop game!

Hey, at least one can hope.
