Default 2008 Codexes Rumor

I was skimming through the net and fell on this French site dedicated to Warhammer
http://forum.warhammer-forum.com/ind...howtopic=43432

The fun bit being this here:
Quote:
*Sorties et événements prévues:

Pour les codex, l'ordre officieux des sorties serait le suivant: Codex Apocalypse*** (octobre 2007), Codex Orks ( 1er trimestre 2008, à partir de janvier), Eldars Noirs** (mi 2008), Nécrons (3è trimestre 2008), Blood Angels**** (courant 2008), Space Wolfs (début 2009).
Les trois prochains chapitre SM qui seront refait, seront effectivement les Dark Angels, puis Blood Angels et Space Wolf.
Roughly it translate as:
Forcasted Release and Events:

For the Codexes, the officious releases order would be: Apocalypse (October 2007), Codex: ork (1st quarter of 2008, starting on January), Dark Eldar (mid-2008), Necron (3rd quarter of 2008), Blood Angels (during 2008), Space Wolf (Early 2009).
The next three SM chapter that will be redone will indeed be the Dark Angels, then Blood Angels and Space Wolf

Um, didn't DA and BA just get an update. I highly doubt they will redo the DA so quickly, and I can see the Blood Angels maybe getting an official printing, but It'd really be a waste of money...especially if it's a carbon copy of the White Dwarf article.

I suppose I can see Necrons redone, and the poor Dark Eldar have definitely waited long enough. There are holes in the source though. Other sources have asserted that 'Forces of Chaos' will be released mid 2008, as well as a 'Mystery printing'. Some rumors point to 40k 5th edition, but I highly disbelieve that...

Anyways, at this point 2008 is so jumbled and mixed up I wouldn't hold my breath for any of these releases (besides the official Apoc & Orks)...

Yeah, they wouldn't update DA twice in the same edition. BA is understandable - that they give us something quick to work with for the current edition, whilst they spend more time on the full codex. But what about the daemons codex for chaos? I'd expect that to be in there somewhere.

And one can always keep hoping for Alienhunters...

Maybe he forgot to remove DA from his list after it got updated, since I agree with you they would, more then likely, not re-print it in the same edition, but doesn't necessarely means that the rest is off the mark.

I'm just sad a bit that IG isn't coming out soon...on the other hand it gives me time to finish my Tau army before starting my Gue'la.

I guess we'll see.

i dont think GW think that far ahead to be honest, and theirs no way DA or BA are getting an update, and as for 5th edition.... Dream on, they will keep the rule book as it is as long as they see the rulebook is okay and rules are still keeping the codexes balanced.

Orks, Dark Eldar, Necrons and Space Wolves sound likely.
The Blood Angels might get a full-size one, but apparently in WD it says the Demons get their Codex early 2008.

Well that's the issue. There's been talk of updating the core rules before they redo too many codex. GW updates their ruleset every five years, and the rumours asserted that the date would be pushed forward a year to address certain issues with 4th edition. Look at it as Warhammer 40k 4.5...

Still I'm skeptical.
