Huge CSM Rumor Dump

Check it out. The QnA is over now, but all the questions and answers are posted in the comments. I'm sure eventually someone will sort it all out. Here's some notes...

Cultists are 4 points a piece, 10-30 per squad. Dark Apostles apparently give them something special when they're joined. Typhus makes them Zombies, which gives them FnP, but they can't be joined by characters.

Noise Marines get Salvo Sonic Blasters at 36" range. Noise Champions get a whip that makes it impossible to refuse challenges.

Khorne Berzerkers get 5 attacks at str 5 ap 5 on the charge, and can take two-handed chain axes that act like Chain Fists. Skull Champion can be given a Collar that gives them a Deny the Witch on a 5+.

Thousand Sons have a Sorcerer built into the cost that gets a free roll on the power charts. Bolters get Soul Blaze.

Plague Marines can now throw their Blight Grenades to force opponents to move as if through difficult terrain, or worse.

Dreads can be marked. Bikers are about the same. Standard Chaos Marines and Cultists are the only troops. Chaos Marines can take a special weapon per 5 models.

You can give a unit a Mark and a different Icon (Mark of Khorne, Icon of Nurgle). The cost of the Icon goes up by 20 points if the unit is already Marked. Terminator marks and icons cost about 50% more.

Defiler gets Daemon rules (+5 inv, Fear) with 4 Hull Points.

Seige daemon engine gets a melta blast shot.

Obliterators are Heavy, Maulers (cc oblits) are Elites and have T5.

Dedicated transports get the same mark as the squad they're bought with for free.

New Land Raider Variant holds 16 models and can ram fortifications, allowing unit within to assault INTO the fortification. Old Land Raider has capacity of 12 now.

Ahriman is Mastery Level 4 and has LOTS of Psychic potential. He can choose from any lore.

Kharn the Betrayer has 8 attacks on the charge at initiative 5.

The Flyer is AV 12/11/10, is in the Fast Attack, and is apparently awesome at taking down other Zooming fliers. There is apparently no other flier in the Codex.

No new Fortifications, but there's a special Chaos upgrade that we can give to Fortifications.

That's all I got. Read through the post for more!

I like some of what I am seeing - the basic marines are cheap. I love cheap troops but I think GW will try and push loads of cult marines.

the trouble with these answers is the fact I can't see many AP 2 weapons :/
but khorne berserker's are going to be beasts :D

I can't wait to kill some orks/guard

I am so pumped too! Just the fact that Khorne Berzerkers will be viable again, I can field all 130 of mine. I always found they where way too many pts for not alot and in combat they weren't great for there points. Im also happy about cultists, but sad :( that there is no Warsmith HQ, just some dark techmarine in the elites slot.
20k pts of Necrons, fully painted
WE ARE THE NECRONTYR WE CLAIM DOMINION OVER THIS THREAD SURRENDER AND DIE.

Yea and there so cheap you can just send wave in and they die but you don't really care because up you have like a million more. I can't wait for cultists. And how come you can buy 100 zombies for $14? Rumoured price?

Phil Kelly wrote the current Tyranid Codex. He also wrote the current Eldar, Ork, Space Wolf, and Dark Eldar dexes.

There's going to be a lot of playability out of all the units, since Phil Kelly is writing it. You're going to see a lot of different armies. Some will be Undivided, some will be mono-god or dual-god, and some will take the best out of each slot in the FOC.

According to the poster, going without marks gets you a lot of bodies that you can put on the table. As soon as you start going with Cult marines or marks or icons, things get expensive. He said you could have a 10-man squad of Chaos Marines cost less than a Tac squad, but with upgrades you could easily make that same 10 man squad 400 points.
