Default When can we expect a new codex?

Okay, I'm newer to 40k. And by starting this topic, I'm not trying to fuel the fire of "Tau suck in 5th edition" rumors. I'm just curious as to about how often armies get a new codex, and about when we can expect a new codex.

a good while. Whats wrong with our current dex?

I find the army list simple, strait forward, and no real need for a major revision now. However I would love to see the humans become natural auxiliaries. They have the product lines already, whats stopping you GW!

Unless we get a new friend in GW, don't expect a new codex any time soon.

You'll have to forgive me here, I'm not one for release dates. Is it going to be alongside 5th ed (or before) or are we going to have some time sitting around trying to work out how stuff is meant to be translated across now.

codexes.......codie......codex.......WHAT IS PLURAL FOR CODEX!?!?!?!??!

THEY get redone about every, or every other, new edition of the rules. That's about every 4 to 6 years. Then again there are always a few exceptions. I don't think the space marine codex has been updated in like forever. Tau codex was just updated not that long ago, so we are going to have to wait a while.

Right now GW is working on refreshing necron, imperial guard, dark eldar, and that apocalypse upgrade (and space wolves I think). That should carry us over to next year. From there, who knows. The only thing we can look forward to is that we are probably ahead of both chaos armies, tyranid, orks, and maybe eldar(a lot of people think most of the new 5th edition changes are to hinder eldar, and GW may over/under do things and need to reset eldar). That means unless GW is planing on updating a bunch of the space marine chapters then we are probably next.

With all that in mind, I would guess at the absolute earliest the new tau codex could possibly show up is late summer, early fall 2009. Either then or a long time away in a galaxy far far ago......... or something like that.

Current SM codex dates to 2004. The new one is expected around October. SMs always get a new codex when the new rules come out.

The bell of lost souls rumor mill says the next three codices are space marines, space wolves then imperial guard.
