48 hours is the legal limit that someone can be forced to be employed to work for in a week

9-5 is eight hours.

5 days makes forty hours.

As such even if I work non-stop in those times (which I won't, because of lunchbreaks at least), I won't be overtime

This could be interesting. I'd like to see how this goes, so it's getting a sticky until it's done with. Also karma later down the line man.

I hope so!

This has not started well, however. I woke up at quarter past eight, thought "Right!" got up, got a drink, went for a piss and then... climbed back into bed. I've now just woken up. This has lost me just under three hours, and I'm not taking that time out of an evening elsewhere - that's not part of the challenge. I've just ballsed up.

But ho well, I've still got thirty-seven hours left, which sounds like an outrageous amount.

This is probably the most awesome thing the internet has ever spawned! If you pull this off you will be automatically included in my standard lineup of anecdotes about 40K

But in cases where there are no change to the point cost of a unit (and perhaps abilities?), I think you should write "no change" instead of the actual cost. Otherwise it probably won't be legal to post on Tau Online. Just a thought

Looking forward to the first update.

If Circus is approaching this the way I would, he'll be burning the old Codex and redoing from scratch, not the GW's favourite trick of "stick a plaster on and it's good for 20 years".

Wargamer's pretty much right. I'm not removing any unit types, but that doesn't mean you're going to necessarily recognise them.

Just so you know what kind of info you're going to get in the updates, here's a mini update!

I have eight A4 pages, including two cover pages and a contents page. I am on around 1500 words. I have done the cover (obviously), the introduction (the first bit in any Codex, with the "Why play X" section) and I'm making a good start on the hefty background chunk you get at the start of 5th Ed Codexes.

Considering I got up late and I've been working for about an hour and ten minutes, I reckon that's good going.
