I was wondering what every-one's thoughts are about this.
So far, the only things I've been able to ascertain are:
The book will apparently be for both 40K and fantasy - like the classic Lost and the Damned and Slaves to Darkness book.
The book will focus on daemons and stuff, and not have much or any CSM material in it.
Apparently there will be over 20 different daemonic units.
Early smells say that it won't be compatible with codex CSM, however, this is just a rumour - do not panic. Do not smash your models. Do not hurt yourself.
There have been no solid rumours from someone like Brimstone about this.
I have also seen new sprues with cult specific parts for terminators/csm - like a lash, a deathscreamer, a nurgling. It all looks pretty good.
So yeah, what are your thoughts?
Also, do people think that we'll get codexeathguard and stuff
This is a place to speculate and rant, but please be controlled.
I had heard that there would be god specific marine lists in the new book ( as in deathgaurd, EC, TS, and WE)
To be quite honest I have gotten used to the new CSM dex as is. If they do not allow them to be used together I do not think I will be overly upset but if they do allow them to be used together I will just count it as a nice little bonus...

I'm with Angel on this, we do have pretty well rounded codex, even tough I miss my 'letters...
I wouldn't count on there being anything for us in the new codex.

Nah, I think we should get another codex..I want my Rubric Terminators back. Either way, 40k and Fantasy ain't compatible rule wise.
Rawr. Chaos are evil
Ok, I'll chime in as a naysayer.
I can't help but think the logistics of this are daunting. GW is on 4th edition of 40k, with 5th probably in 2011 (my conjecture here). They are on what, version 23 of Fantasy? If just seems like the book is doomed to lose half it's validity rulewise in a weird, out-of-phase manner due to release schedules.
Actually, I really think this part of the rumor is not going to happen. Fantasy and 40k have been diverging for years. Is Slannesh going to be the Doom of the High Elves? Just doesn't make sense. It would have to be essentially two seperate books mashed up into one. Anything else is going to require vasaline and a crowbar to fit it all together.
Releasing the new Codex and Armybook separately, along with the new (wretched) models seems to make more sense.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
I've heard smells that cult lists will be included in it.. which makes it all worth it to be honest.
I'd love to have special rules for deathgaurd.. terminators will feel no pain, furious assault, inferno bolts etc etc
We can but hope I guess. heh heh.
I must say I'm extremely doubful as to the W40k/WFB in-one-book thingie.
While it's quite fluffy for chaos, GW has historically kept its universes completely separated from one another. It would be a big departure to change this stance, not to mention that many people would not want to pay for a half of codex they would not use.

Personally, my opinions on this have been expressed clearly and vehemently on these boards and others in the past. It'd be a travesty in my view were the Codices not compatible. But I'm a bugger like that. Lesser Daemons bug me.
I'm also kind of ambiguous on the Fantasy/40k combine book. While the link between the universes opens up some possibilities for fluff, it's not like it hasn't been done already, and if GW wants to shy away from such a link as they have shown in the past, they should release separate books. Also the systems are less than compatible in some ways.
The new models disturb me.
Personally I think that if they release a deamon only codex, I will be the first one to play a purely deamon army. I have wanted to do that since I first started playing Chaos. All Nurgle, all the time. I'll be mad if I dont get to use my deamon prince, though.
