Default New deamons codex rumours

As we all should know our new army codex is being released next april, so dicuss any rumours relating to it!

I can say i've heard the following:

All the deamons we lost from last chaod codex will be in it.
Cultists rumoured to part of the codex
Plastic greater and/or lesser deamon kit!

That is all I can gather thus far, enjoy-Brassdeamon14

What I really want to know is whether or not you'll be able to take allied daemons the same way that SM can take allied GK.

i believe that was the intention all along, that the two codecies can work together as one.
also, i think we can expect to see some new types of demons. I mean, they're getting a full book, they best have more units to fill it up, right?

The Daemon book will be a stand alone book and from what I've heard will not be compatible with Codex: CSM. It will be it's own force.

All Daemons from the past will return. Fiends of Slaneesh, Beasts of Nurgle etc.

Daemonic Heralds will be featured. In what has been described as somewhere between a Greater and Lesser Daemon. HQ option but you can take 2 for one slot. They will have God specific variants.

Daemonic Engines will be in it and models are being made for them. I forget the GW guy who said it but in his words they are "the coolest models GW has ever made."

There will be plastics for all the lesser daemons, GDs I have heard no.

LaTD will not be in the codex in any way, shape or form.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

That would be crazy. What's the point of putting out what is essentially a new army for 40k when there are existing armies in need of updating? I just find it really hard to believe that GW would be THAT irrational. It must surely be coming on the heels of the Chaos codex for the reason that it is compatible with it and therefore to placate the many Chaos players are miffed about the whole generic daemon thing.

And isn't the 40k fluff for CSMs and Daemons so intertwined that it would just seem really awkward to not have them fight together? Wouldn't it be ridiculous to have the situation where even though my daemons look like the daemonettes/bloodletters/flamers/furies etc., they are really just "generic", while the guy I'm playing against is using the exact same models but with radically different stats?

It would be irrational if GW wasn't releasing a Daemon book for Fantasy at the same time. So really the models were being produced anyway so throwing out a codex for 40k with Daemon Engines being the only uniques unit isn't too big of an expense for them.

Then there is Apocalypse where the two armies can be combined, and the new plastics themselves being available for CSM armies.

Anyway, I'm only relaying what I hear, not what I prefer, so take it with a grain of salt if you wish. I want Plaguebearers instead of lesser daemons for my Death Guard but I don't expect to get them. If what I've heard is wrong I'll be thrilled but I'll still be happy just to get some plastic plaguebearer models.

It's all pretty confusing now. I thought 40k just goes the way of fantasy, where Hordes of Chaos and Beasts of Chaos are separate forces; now I hear there's a daemon codex for fantasy too. I' can't wait to hear what is going on.
And if the Daemon codex and CSM codex cannot be combined, I'll do it anyway. Somebody stop me. :P

I imagine that GW will allow the Codexi to be combined as per the Fantasy Chaos armies- It'll depend on who/what is commanding your force. If it's a CSM Lord, then demons will be "allies" (And restricted) with CSMs as the bulk of your troops. If your force is led by a Demonic entity (Of whatever flavor), then CSMs will be restricted and Demons will be the bulk of your troops. But who knows what GW will do?

Of course this is all rumor and speculation and not proven fact. Unless you have the book in hand I'm taking more than just a grain...
