I was just wondering if anyone had any idea when a new batch of cult marines for chaos might be on their way? I know of the forgeworld deathguard, they look great!!! But I was wondering with the rumors of the new chaos cult army books if they are going to release new models with that as well? I just ask this because I'm in the midst of trying to put together a new cult army and dont really want to buy the models and then a few months down the road see shiny ( or more hopefully plasticky! ) new ones that I want instead!
Well, there is the Daemon book on the horizon. But seeing as they did away with Legion specific rules in the new incarnation of the SM codex, new cult troops are not likely.
It would be pretty spiffy though if they did make some more cult troops with their own special skills/abilities. Like having a squad of Night Lords(infiltrate, maybe?) as a troops choice.

There are rumours from amongst people in War seer and other forums that there is fact a Codex: Chaos Legions or Chaos Cults or whatever on the horizon, however the horizon seems to be set a fair bit back as it is expected sometime 2010ish,
I wouldn't worry about new models just yet8Y
My homage to my time spent at Libararium Online:
I would also wager a guess at the new DG models being a pre-emptor for Imperial Armour 6. There is going to be a follow on from the Siege of Vraks, and as the traitor guard had Nurglesque priest types it'd make sense for there to be some DG knocking about when the full traitor legions come calling.
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
Don't expect to see a cult codex before the end of this year an probaly not next year.
With the new FW DG models i was dissapointed to find that only the upper half of the models was being done, granted it's basically an upgrad but it leaves the lower half looking non-nurgle. If there is a Imperial Armour book coming out with DG in it, then hopefully they'll do some proper nurgle minatures.

I reckon Dave is spot on with his observation about IA6 - with those renegade nurgle cult guys.
The only slight thing, is that in the back of IA5 is an image of a load of Bezerkers getting out of one of those chaos drop pods - and a khorne-looking land raider. Dunno, but might be worth a mention.
