What's going on?
I've been hearing rumors that GW is going cancel LatD. Rumors that there going to be in the new Codex. Rumors that they Are going to have there own codex.
Can someone please set this straight with facts. I am so confused.

Well, regarding LaTD everything you say could be true... just that I don't think they'd be discontinued. LaTD don't have their own models, thus nothing could be pulled from the shelf.
Ruleswise, I guess due to the new Chaos codex coming I guess there's be some changes. I do think the Eye of terror codex will be around until LaTD might get an own codex. But that's not entirely confirmed so to say... read some rumours.. but that's what they are, rumours.
I am however curious how the new Chaos codex will work out with the LaTD list now.
I'm guessing Chaos spawns won't be heavy support for the new Chaos marines dex. So say, they're elite... would give you the possibility to field 6 x 5 spawns... a loss of obliterators, a gain of dreadnaughts (if they change slots with oblits) and how about demons. If we lose cult marines and the cult demons ie; daemonettes (at least, that's something I've heard) then what use are Chaos icons in the squads? Oh, and what about the rulings now which state "may choose from the Chaos armory", as in the new format armories are pretty much non-existant.
I guess there'll be something changing, that's for sure. Although, we can also hope for errata. Perhaps they'll even keep the old Chaos dex just for use with the EoT codex.
So, nothing is entirely confirmed regarding LaTD. But the above stuff is just my 2 cents on it.
There have been alot of rumours that are being thrown around regarding LaTD. Some say that they will have their own little section in the new Chaos codex and other have said that their rules will be revisited when a new Daemons Codex (or something like that) comes out. I would hate to see GW scrap LaTD becuase I'm curretly fielding an army and if the rules were taken out I'll be ending up with a Guard army I don't want (No I will not give the models away for free).
What will most likely happen is GW favorite thing to do which is......Nothing. Although I have been known to be wrong I don't think LaTD will receive any major updates in the new Chaos codex nor will they be scrapped. There might be a mention of them in the new codex but for now we're all just going to have to use the rules GW created when Dinosaurs still roamed the earth. About the same time they created the Dark Eldar Codex (Poor DE players)

Current rumor mill says L&TD will be around for a long time, Very probable they will be getting a Codex some time late next year( somthing like Legions of chaos ) the book is suppose to detail rules for all the deity specific deamons. we may even get some new chaos vehicals and troop types.
Thought for the day: A Burning Heretic , Will brighten the Decor of any room.
Well, I'll guess we'll have to wait and see...
I'm just more then curious what'll happen with the reference to the chaos codex. Do we keep to use the current one? Or the new one... as I see a problem or two with the new one (at least, if I believe the rumours). But hey.. it's about a month still to go.
Hm... this has already been discussed a bit on the ZomG thread...
So for site neatness and to stop things getting out of control with threads and the like, I'm going to close this thread. Please PM me if there's a problem.
Just for the record, I too am interested in the fate of LaTD. Combinations will definitely change - no obliterators, sudden dreadnoughts.
Additionally, Daemons are in the balance as they occupy no particular place in the FoC apparently.
Probably best to use the two old codexes for LatD...
