Default New Books Of Chaos. How will it work?

Okay, as we have heard, following the Undivided Codex, the four Books Of Chaos shall emerge from the Warp.

As they are separate books, Methinks they'll have to make some new units for each Cult, probably expanding an existing unit or two into multiples. So, for example, they might have:
Slaanesh Cultists, Slaanesh Priests, or Slaanesh BDSM Leather Daddies. Um, maybe not that last one, but anyway, they'll need more stuff in the Books then the three or so pages we have now. Perhaps the pages will be taken up by new customizable abilities, like Powers and Wargear, and a sizeable section for fluff.

Also, another thing bugging me, is how they'll feature Marks in Undivided Armies? Will we have a condensed version in the Undivided Codex? But then they'll have to attach the God's Gifts, etc, so.... Or will they be unable to mark? Perhaps the Books will concern only Fully Marked Armies....


What do you guys think?

From what I have heared is that Chaos Undivided will get their own codex in September '07. The others are still a mystery. They might make a codex: Dark Gods of Chaos or whatever, or every god-specific codex on their own.
It would be very cool if Deathguard will get his own codex..

cheers

Indeed, the Undivided one comes first, then the our Books.

Should be interesting, although if they do it a way as to make my Cult armies not playable using at some rules which are similar and they make me wait a year or more to get my cult armies up again, I'm going to scream!

probably. I mean GW can be a harsh company at times, but they aren't going to be so harsh to completely change someones lists....

Although that would mean that GW get more money.. :-\

I have a feeling we may see the return of daemonic cavalry!!

and maybe a new group of daemons - biger ones than the others!!

I just hope that they don't just repackage previous stuff and claim that it's new...

I was just tossing around ideas, about how the Cults could have new stuff:

Thousand Sons: 0-1 Flying Fortress of Tzeentich.

Emperors Children: Slaves and Pleasure Barges for fast attack

Death Guard: Um, Plague Zombies?

World Eaters: Skull Bonuses, they get stronger the more heads taken?


Feel free to chime in with ideas.

33rd Sirican Redbacks,

Of course you'll be able to. They want you to have to buy 5 total codecies... : I fear the most for my LatD. They have crept into my heart, corrupted me, and become my favorite army in 40k. (I still love my Eldar, but they have definitely been relegated to the role of secondary army) I am hoping that cultists, traitors, and mutants will become a core part of all forces; but then again that kind of steals the Alpha Legion's thunder...

I've heard there will be two books, one undivided, and one for the 4 powers. So this is how I predict things will work

-Undivided Book-

-Same rules for taking marks as the Black Legion. Cult folks have this as a "get you by" thing until the cult book comes out and will probably lose the free aspiring champions for a while at least.

-Cultists make it into the list

-(maybe) Restriction lifted on raptors, possibly dependant on the lord's wargear (ie, if he has flight)

-Some reduction in the availability of vet skills

-Iron Warriors lose pretty much all their special rules. No more unlimited obies, no more 4th heavy, no more basilisks/vindicators (unless they somehow incorporate LaTD into the book)

-Cult Book-

-Basically a pamphlet saying "FREE CHAMPS AND BONUSES TO SUMMONING ARE BACK!"
