Just some news. Expect within the next 12-18 months for a new Warriors of Chaos book to be released. On that note I ask you what do you expect or what would you like to see in the next book.
I expect the following.
Differentiation between Chosen and Warriors. Have Warriors reduced in number of attacks to 1 like they used to be with chosen having 2 attacks. This would give you a reason to take chosen in the first place aside from Favour of the Gods.
New magic for Tzeench, Nurgle and Slaanesh sorcerers with relevant lore attribute but have something to reflect Khorne's wrath allowing pure Khornate lists to punish sorcerers who miscast.
Plastic Dragon Ogres more akin to the pictures in the current book.
I would like to see
Chosen Chaos Knights to make a return in the Rare section with the option to take daemonic mounts so Khornate Knights gets to ride Juggernauts, Slaaneshii Knights get to ride Steeds of Slaanesh and Nurgle/Tzeenchian Knights get to ride normal daemonic mounts. Not only would they be monstrous cavalry in the case of the Juggernauts and the Daemonic Steeds, so get to make stomp attacks, but they would give the rider a 5+ ward save. It would also give the a hero on a daemonic mount somewhere to go where they cannot get picked out.
Antagonism between the followers of the rival powers reflected in that characters with a mark can only join units with the same mark or undivided units whilst undivided characters could go anywhere. Having a Slaaneshi character in a unit of Khornate warriors..........it just seems like it really would not happen, would it?
Daemon Princes to have Ld9, surely becoming a daemon prince would not make a chaos lord any less of leader.
Better Daemonic Gifts.
For forsaken to have 2 attacks and frenzy instead of random attacks. Also to be Unbreakable and have the Swiftstrider rule to represent them rushing off to seek their deaths.
Just my thoughts.

Alas I can see Warriors going down to one attack. We have it amazingly good at the moment and its mainly do to the attacks we can dish out. However the Price of warriors will go down quite a bit if they did it, thus meaning we can have larger units. This might help us out with steadfast opponents.
Need to Fix:
-Forsaken. Not really worth while at the moment. Compared to other armies they're an amazing unit. Compared to everything else in our book they're highly lack lustre.
-Daemon Princes. As you've said, LD8 is bum. So is the ability to not take weapons or be any where near as good as Lord in combat.
Want to see:
-NEW CHARIOT MODELS!!
-New Ogre, Dragon Ogre models
-Forsaken models, Plastic Chosen and more variety in the Warrior box.
-Antagonism between the followers will cause a lot of upset as people love 'mixing it up' to gain certain combo's, although with a new book those Combo's would be gone. It would be nice if they brought it back though as it really makes no sense at the moment.
-I'd also like to see some bonuses for Khorne other than Frenzy. The ability to take a Khorne army with no wizards should be encouraged, not punished.
EDIT: JVK: Where did you hear this?
Theres not much I can think of really, its all just so good as it is! I love your idea of Chosen Knights, I've always wanted to have a unit like the one in the BRB but since I have no need for them and they'd be very expensive, I've never got myself self to do it. If there was something, I think it would have to be, make Vilitch good, I know he's just suppossed to be better than the average Sorcerer Lord in combat, but he hasn't got much in the way of rules or items, I don't know about anyone else but I can't jusitfy his points cost when a normal Sorcerer Lord is way better. I hope to see blasted standard kept in the book along with doom totem, those are the ony two I want since in the the new books they've only got about 3 banners in them.
One shall stand, and one shall fall.
I would also like to see Chimerae as a Rare Choice. They are the epitome of creatures of chaos and would give chaos players who have one reason to use it outside of storm of magic games.
I really think the daemon prince needs a good hard lookin at. Seriously, for it's price a simple leadership bump is not enough, give it the option to take magic items, or give it chaos armor, something to make it worth while. I can see warriors taking a nose dive in cost if they do have reduced stats, I can also see marauders getting an increase in points as well. I want a Vilitch model! I want new Dogre models! and please please for the sake of Boraks awesome new khorne list some new chariot models
New kits for dragon ogres/ogres and chariots would be nice.
Some rules to encourage all out Khorne as anyone else using lore of metal on my Khorne warrior list without any chance to stop it is gonna get some serious verbal bombardment! And then a mahoosive warrior fist punch when the remainder hit the lines!
Some fancy new items and banners would also be appreciated.
However because of the rumoured release of the new edition of 40K we might only see two releases for fantasy next year as 40K will take precedence over fantasy so any new Warriors of Chaos book is at least a year away.

New marks for tzeench and Nurgal (tzeench is kinda broken now and nurgal is too controversial)
Addition of monstrous Calvary (or possibly making Drogers MC)
New Monsters, possibly war mammoth? (why else would it be in SoM??)
New special characters (I think the age of Archeon is done)
new lores of magic for the gods and new choices from the basic lores.
What I'd like to see
Warriors remain unchanged. I quit playing when the watered down their attacks.
MoS to be Unbreakable insted of this ITP wannabe garbage
Chaos Dwarves!! and their fun artillery
return of MUTATIONS, @ seperate cost from weapons
Removal of the eye of the gods, warshrines to grant PD/DD
Improvements on classic items that just suck: Runeshield, Skull of Katam
I really don't expect to see an update in that timeframe tho, not within the next year. there are still plenty of armies that are screaming for new rules, like WOOD ELVES FOR &*(^%^ SAKE!!
all of these have older books than ours, and should be updated before us. Some of them need an upgrade, some of them need a nerfing (SLANN! ASF ELVES!!).
So unless you have your sources, I'd say this is pure speculation and wishful thinking. and if you do have your sources, i feel sorry for the other armies that get left behind.
Either way, thanks for letting us know Chaos before Dwarves? Thats a new one on me. I thought Dwarves were soon in the pipe line. They just seem to be put back every time I see a new rumour. Still, a new book is a long way off so I shan't change any plans with army building Nor get caught up with what ifs.
See this to me makes no sense. We have 2 low tier armies out there in need of a re-do, and GW would choose to focus their attention on an army who is working extremely well in their current state? *sigh*
Honestly I can't find many rules in the book that I would want changed, other than what has been stated. Plastic chariots and new dragon ogres are a must, people have been griping about these for far too long.
A warshrine kit could be pretty cool though..
