Is there anywhere I can look for rules on using Chaos Cultists? I know a lot of people were complaining that the new CSM codex lacked cultists, but I really had my heart set on using them. Just curious if there's an online publication or supplement somewhere that has stats for them.
Not necessarily allowable in tournaments... but something fairly official that people at local stores would have a high chance of allowing. That or I may be forced to just build a non-CSM Imperial Guard army and say they worship chaos.
The 3rd edition Chaos Codex had stats for Cultists under the Alpha Legion rules. You could also see the LatD rules.
On a whim, we *might* find Cultist stats in the upcoming Daemon Codex, though, I haven't read anything particular regarding their inclusion.

You can find the LatD rules with cultists on the GW website in the 40k chaos section gaming rules. The Alpha Legion rules are in index astartes ..II or III i believe. They're both excellent rulesets and give some really cool ideas for armies, im really sad they decided to drop them for 4th edition. I hope they see the error of dropping a great model like that and bring them back for 5th, whether in the daemon codex, a seperate cult codex, another LatD codex, or the CSM codex. Lot of chances to get new cultists rules, so we'll see =). Even a free .pdf release of some updated chaos cultist rules would be great.
Are the GW site rules official? Like, could I print them out and use them as canon rules in my gaming group?
i dont believe they allow them to be used in GW tournaments, so it depends on what you consider "official". You can buy the index astartes books, or use chapter approved rules out of white dwarf magazines, but they arent exactly official either. If you're playing home games, you can use any rulesets you want.
I use the rules for Kroot Mercenaries as my own Cultists. It works quite well.
Theres a decent list in the witch hunters codex that is probaly better then the one in the alpha legion section of the 4th edition codex, it has HQ and weapon optoin for traitors and mutants etc, it could be used but as you would suspect it does have a sort of wicth theame going on so the witch hunters have somthing to hunt, i think theres a list in the eye of terror supplement but you'd need to check that, hope it helps,

Some are missing from the new dex and some were changed substantially.
So, the question now must be: what IG Units do you want to use in a CSM list?
If it's just Renegade Platoons of IG Infantry, that shouldn't be a problem -
Just use the costs and stats from Codex: IG, and add 1-6 to your Troops.
After all, 40kA allows CSM players to Ally the whole IG Codex, if they like. ;- )
Sound out opponents in your group to see if anyone has philosophical objections.
A mixed IG/CSM list might seem exciting and new to the people in your group.
But, some might be concerned about adding loads of Sentinels and Vanquishers . . .
To summarise: Modelling Renegade IG is a hoot, whether the list is official or not.
But, if you want to field them with your CSM, you'd better ask around, first.
