I sincerely doubt we'll be getting a new.... new codex anytime soon. The Space Wolf Codex, the Daemonhunters and witchunters codexies are two editions old, the Dark Eldar codex is THREE editions old. See what I mean?

yes they will be redoing it. they are redoing EVERY army for 5th... i think chaos daemons are the exception because they were made for 5th and techincally the first 5th ed army... but its going SM next then Space wolfes, then IG, then necrons and dark eldar (not sure which first), and then nids and tau (again not sure which first) you're lookin at '10 for next codex tho.but we'll most probably be getting new models for the planet fall thing next summer. so that shall keep us goin lol

I can remeber when the last Tau codex came out Tau ended up like last place in the Fall of Medusa V thing. So I don't think new codexes treat Tau very good.

As I remember it, Necrons came last.

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

I guess if they hadn't so rudely interrupted themselves with 5th ed., they probably would have gotten around to it eventually.

Let's hope GW has enough time to do it this time (redo every codex, that its), before they are 'interrupted' again... by themselves.

Love it or hate it, 5th ed. came about pretty abruptly, eh? Well, at least other races like DE are finally getting an update, which should add some variety to things.

The problem with that, is that they also have to re-do fantasy army books, make another few LotR supplements (kick a dead horse), and that editions are only 4 years apart, not 4 and a half.

Correction, they aren't redoing every codex for 5th. The codices (plural of codex) that were made for fifth are Eldar, Blood Angels, Dark Angels, Orks, Chaos Space Marines, Chaos daemons. The only upgrades every codex is getting at the moment are the FAQ's on the GW website. And I wouldn't be complaining about not getting a new codex soon (not that any of you have, just planning ahead) There are many older armies out there who need/deserve a new codex. Tau were only done recently (considering the speed GW work at) Dark Eldar had their first codex in 1998, and their second was a slightly re-vamped version of the same thing in 2003! Tau on the other hand were released in 2001, and redone (new unit and heaps of other nice stuff) in 2006! So I'd be waiting a long time til Tau are re-done. There are supposedly new models coming though
