Is there any "rumors" on a lost and the damned army? I know that in apocalypse you can combine chaos and IG to get a "latd" style game, but I liked the old version of 1 or 2 Sm's leading a bunch of cultists. With the new codex's (daemons and chaos) any one "hear something on a possible LATD theme? thanks
I shall call him Squishy, and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy.
I think GW are sticking lost and the damned in apocalypse and leaving them there. Very much what they have done to the Kroot Mercs.
However a group of us on my local forum (Wargamer AU) nutted out a cut n paste update for the Lost and the damned. When I say cut and paste I mean we cut rules from the current Chaos codex and pasted it into the sections where it no longer fit with lost and the damned. We have been allowed to use it in a few tournaments in Australia also and has been well received. It’s only gone as far as the Chaos Codex fixes. We may add more to it now that the Daemons Rules are now out, but we don’t know as yet.
Anyway here it is should you wish to give em a run.HQ's:

Though its not the same as ye olde LatD, try IA5: Siege of Vraks. Its got the "Renegades" rules...

IA5 has a good Renegade guard list. But IA6 is supposedly going to have a more Chaos-ish Guard list.

I'v always liked the idea of a lost and the damned army. but didnt like how its not touramnet legal. good job
I'm a loyalist Guard player all the way, I'm afraid - but your list did give me awsome images of black spikey guardsmed being herded, slapped and generally abused by a few Chaos Space Marines - nice job!
Sadly Lost and the Damned have always been grossly under represented in the game of 40K.
Not only would they be an incredibly popular army in reality, but they probably one of the more common armies in the context of the 40K universe too.
It would be great to see more LaTD, I have no idea why they have such little support.
GW really did show off their stupidity with losing the LATD. to use them you had to buy 3 codexes = £$£$ for them! Then you had to get models from quite a few different ranges, which in addition to simply selling models, gets you interested in those ranges anyway!
Bring them back, it was fun!
With their own codex sure there wouldn't be the multiple book selling thing, BUT it was, as mentioned, such a characterful army fluffwise (not to mention a converter's dream) that it seems like an idiotic thing to lose.
If I've replied, i've probably used Italics...

I didn't want to go on about the potential lucrative potential of LaTD for GW... but now you've mentioned it...
heh heh. Perhaps they're not money grabbing after all. They're just silly. ^_^
I'm really glad to see that the Lost and the Damned are still getting a lot of attention. Maybe, if we all concentrate and wish really hard, GW will hear and do something!
Meantime, I'll stick with house rules or an outdated codex.
I build, I convert, I sometimes paint, and once in a while, if I'm really lucky, I might even play.
