Default New Codexes??

Just curious-
Why is it that the Space Marines are getting another new codex, yet such armies as the IG and Necrons are still stuck with the old one?

I apologize if this has already been posted somewhere, but I didn't see it anywhere.

Space Marines are the Main Army of GW as well as Imperial Guard and Necrons ain't the most popular army. I would blame the Tau as well but that's just me and my paranoia. We're getting our update around early next year. So, ain't complaining here.

Hey, welcome to Tau Online.

The new IG codex is rumoured for May of 2009. Next time, trying using the search function.

Cheers,

AC

Its basicly profits to, more people or going to want to play marines so you need to keep the consumer happy by updating them the most, I really dont care though, guard are fine as is right now but the book like AC said will be out soon enough.

Yes, the book is on the way out.

But you may find the natural cycle of the company means that there might be 6 brand new Codices, and 6 old ones. They release them as they're written, not all as one, so each army gets its own turn in the spotlight.

If your wondering more about Guard and the upcoming releases, check here:

Because GW hates you. Not Imperial Guard players. Not Necron players. Not even Squat players.

Just you.

PS - I'm joking..

yeah, thanks.
btw, i dont normally consider myself to be a mainly ig player, so all these references to 'we' and 'us' and whatever have no real meaning to me

Okay, Paradox rift, that was unnecessary. Try to avoid the spam and strange flame baiting next time.
