I remember that in the 5th ed rumors they'll be Plasma Grenades and "no advantages for charging" grenades, but do they do anything right now? Its kind stupid that we currently have something with no effect for the next two months, especially considering how useful it would be to have Slanneshi units with Plasma Grenades.

For the most part, in 5th edition offensive grenades will work like Frags do now, and defensive will work like Plague grenades do now. Can't speak for "Plasma" ones because I don't know what they do.
I play offensive/defensive grenades this way right now. With the "rumored" 5th edition floating around out there, it is clear how they will work and at least in my gaming group we feel that to deny me the use of such things just because they're not officially in print yet is silly.
At the moment treat them as
offensive = Frag
Defensive = Blight/Photon
in 5th ed I think the offensive grenades act as plasma grenades.

atm it is unkown and fyi nurgle is in the same boat with cloud of flies
best confer with opponent beforehand so far i have had 6 games with my nettes and 4 opponents have said they count as having frag and plasma grenades, 1 opponet said frag and photon grenades and the other just wouldn't lt me use it
btw that is fine too it's dosn't do any good to whine about not having a rule we don't pay for in the first place the time will come when we will get it until then we still have the best daemons points for points anyway

Offensive grenades - See frags. Everyone seems to agree on this.
Defensive grenades - enemies don't get bonus charge attacks when assaulting you.
Seems clear cut to me.
I'd say plasma grenades are more specialised and should be kept out of the picture.
