chaos invasion 6th ed codex rumours round up

rite  were about 2 or 3 months  away  from 6th ed and the new chaos codex  so heres the rumours  so far!!  their in no specific  order  and  ill jus  give my  2 penneth  on them  wat theyll do for chaos players and the game in general 

- Mark-specific vehicle upgrades reminiscent of the 3.5 Chaos Marines Codex may appear, such as Poisoned flamers for Nurgle, higher strength/lower AP weapons for Tzeentch, Sonic weaponry for Slaanesh and "brutal blades" for Khorne.

this i think is  a great idea  it means  that for those who do mono  armies their vehicles can be tied in and given the appropriate mark  rather than jus a red/blue/brown/pink  paint job

- New specific differences between Raptors and "Chaos Assault Marines". Raptors now a new cult for Night Lords Legion and "Chaos Assault Marines" being available to all Legions and markable.
 this one is specifically  for  the  night lords fans  as  most  night lords armies were made redundant  when the 4th ed codex came  out so im sure theyll be happy  to see this addition.

Troops choices will be Chaos Space Marines and Cultists -  this is going back to older codex's  giving players more choice so well see different build's  alot of the new codex's  are following this trend take  GK for example
All Cult Marines are Elites
Special Characters will unlock Cult Marines as troops (Kharn for Berserkers and so on) - these  2 are very interesting  very similar to  the SM codex  in that  a HQ  not only changes the FOC  which is becomming more and more common  in newer codex's it also makes lists more interesting (this maybe bcoz phil kelly wrote the codex)
Typhus makes Cultists into Zombies - this is a apoc rule  im thinkin this will become more popular as well with chapter approved  units  from FW maybe tournaments will start lettin ppl use Fw that be awesome :P
Chaos Dreadnaught is removed and replaced with a new unit (like how pariahs were replaced with Lychguard) im not sold on this as  iv heard rumours of a plastic  dreadnought  being done for the starter kit  so well see 
CSM now get a Flyer a Mechanical Chaos Dragon (model is done will be part of initial release) again their are rumours knocking about for this  but i not sold on it i kno its different to regular marine stuff and u can argue  the fluff for ever  but well see how phill kelly handles  it  id like to go with suthin like its a deamon possessing a vendetta gun ship and then turning it into a different shape 
Lesser and Greater Demons are gone not surprised really  by this  with 2 seperate codex's  and the rumours that  its goin 2 be like  the SM codex style  wise
Spawn replaced by “Fell Beast” i think thats  the FW  beastie  

Rules for Traitor Guard are in! 

Codex author is Phil Kelly  cant ask for a better writer  than phill kelly  hes the best that GW have
Chaos Cultists are available in blob squads into the thirties...  like guard  squads 
Certain Named Characters grant various USRs and other special rules to Cultists when selected.  this has been mentioned above  and is like the SM codex

"On HullPoints: If a vehicle has 3 hull points it will die after 3 shaken results, but it can still explode after 1 shot as normal.  this is a weird 1  if u have 3 hull points  wat about things like demonic possession?  if  thats still in vehicles will last ages  and GK  if they can keep casting  fortitude then theyll last for ever as well

On Assault: All cc weapons have AP values in 6th similar to what was in the fake 6th ed rule book leak. this is also a strange  1  it makes  weaker  armies even weaker  for example  if a chain sword is ap5  then  an entire squad of  assault marines  will ignore armour u wont need power weapons

On the flying Dragon thingy: Imagine a dragon made of "fire" and coverd in a platemale armor and you won't be too far off. That is the best discription I can give. Some of the concept art shows it mauling a valkyrie mid flight. It is pretty cool.
But I've said too much! "  like  above  it makes sense  hmmmmmm  not sure  dragons maybe OTT in 40k but well see wat phill can do :P
