Default Lost and the damned + CSM mixed = Forces of Chaos (codex?)

Okay the new codex could be great news or bad news for us, many of you think or have heard that The Lost and the damned are being chucked into our CSM's codex. Now I welcome this and it hit me Tau codex (1st) then Tau Empire Codex (2nd) its starting to look like Chaos are no longer being shown as just evil marines. If the codex becomes more Chaos than parts of the force of chaos like the Tau codex change then are image will slowly change to a more independent look rather than evil marines.

What do you guys think?

I don't see your point. The core of CSM remains the traitorous marines worshipping the Gods of Chaos. The Lost and Damned units are not on their own.

All of the Chaos Legions make use of lesser minions. From Mutants, to Traitorous Guardsmen or Cultists. The Chaos Legions don't have the great numbers as they used to, and the Imperium does have the largest fighting force in the galaxy, the Imperial Guard.

I think it would be fantastic if they had a large, singular codex.

I concur. Whenever you read a BL book and Chaos is the bad guy it is all about the planet wide rebellions and the traitor guardsmen. The number of actual "Chaos Space Marines" is insignificant compared to the endless legions of hapless chaos dupes.

On another note the idea of chaos tainted versions of other races is really cool, but I think they said that they are moving away from splinter lists.

I really hope so that GW will make a Forces of Chaos codex. I agree that chaos is more like traitorous guardsmen and minions etc. I aways get a more 'chaosy' feeling at the LatD, also in the fluff.
Today I bought 'The Founding' a Gaunt's Ghosts omnibus, which also includes fluff about the Bloodpact. The Redshirt told me that the Bloodpact are led by a 'couple of' Chaos Marines. I don't like the fact that when you play LatD that you have to use a chaos marine as a HQ. Why not a command squad and a Senior officer or something? It really fits the traitor-guard feeling.

cheers

Pfreak, actually you could take a Greater Daemon or an Arch Heretic if you wanted to steer clear of the Chaos Space Marine HQ choices.

All in all, I do hope that the Lost and the Damned do get fair representation in the new Codex. I'm looking forward to it. But first, GW, finish Orks!

Erm... Why not just do an Imperial Guard army, and model them as Traitors? If you want a more powerful HQ you could have an allied Inquisitor Lord, and maybe make him a Radical, and include a couple of Daemon Hosts.

That way, to me, seems more fluffy, plus they would be way more effective than a Traitor based LatD.
