Default GW steals Christmas! No codex in ork army box!

OK, maybe the title's a bit much, but I just received word that a number of stores have received a sheet detailing the releases in the next couple months. Apparently the ork army box will just be 1 of every new release with NO codex...

At least I'll save around $300 now...

Oh and I almost forgot. Here's a lil MS Paint mockery

Oh, calm down, You'll still buy it.

Besides, man, ORKS.

Who cares about some silly coloured paper when you can get Orks?

...um...why? Every other army box has a codex in it, why not Orks?

Maybe it is just my area, but the Army Boxes at my local area have never had a codex included, ork or otherwise. Maybe its an Australian thing.

Battleforce, retailing around 50, or Army Box, that usually retails around 125?

Because, at least here, Battleforces have never had a codex, but the army box usually does.

Well.. As far as I can tell there are three different releases for each army whenever theres a new codex released.

Generally accompanying, or slightly prior to a codex release, there's a big 'Army Set' that includes the codex and lots of units, probably retailing around here (Australia) for $330+. Basically just an introductory offer to go with the codex release (e.g. the recent Chaos Army Set).

Then there's the smaller megaforces, that just contains a large selection of units with no codex. Retails for $300 here. They're pretty rare, I think there's still a Dark Angels one and a few Tau and Space Marine ones floating around here. These ones often contain a special edition model or something.

And lastly there's the standard battleforce for $150, usually contains a few units and a tank.

So I'd assume that you guys are talking about the Megaforces - those don't include codexes, but the Army Sets do.

ALL Army deals ive noticed lately DO HAVE. I don't think GW will change this, gw is way to greedy for that. Eldar had their codex in their army deal (its no army box, if army box isn't army deal then pardon me.) and the same for the Orcs and Goblin army along with Chaos.

Apparently the ork army box isn't even a fully fledged army box. Apparently they're just packaging one of every new release into a "preview box" a lil more swag than a battleforce for almost twice the price. This is what it's supposed to contain (not even a legal army!)

10boyz
5 lootas/burnas
3 bikes
trukk
5 tankbustas
2 bomb squigs
1 shokk attack gun
1 wierdboy


Oh and the "GW steals christmas" line was just me trying to come up with a clever title for this latest bad news

Fish Ead, if what you say is true, then sometime next year we should expect GW to go bungee jumping over a lake of fire... Seriously, that's a terrible army deal if ever I've seen one. Not even a legal army, and 20 Boyz only!? My god, the current Battleforce is better than this. Are you sure the Shokk Attack Gun and Weirdboy are in? Because I've NEVER heard of GW including metal models in army sets before.

Nothing against you, but I'm personally hoping that you've been misinformed and there will be a proper all-plastic, fully-legal, Codex-included Ork army set.
