Default When's 5th edition nid codex?

since im starting Tyranid i was wondering when the a 5th edition codex is out or if the one out already is 5th edition, this is because i don't want to learn all the old rules for nids then a new one come out

so i just want to know if anyone can give me a date for the release?

IF... you are asking a question about something that doesn't exist. IF GamesWorkshop decides they even want to put out a 5th edition Tyranid codex. That would be an assumption that I would not be willing to make. Look at the poor Dark Eldar players who haven't had an update in almost 10 years, and Space Wolves never had a 4th edition codex.

Nothing is announced. Nothing will be announced until about 2 months before the release. Just keep watching to forums as we tend to find out things before GWS actually puts them out.

Currently the rumour for 2009-2010 are: Space wolf, Dark Eldar, Necron and Tau.

Of those 4, the most pressing are Necron and Dark eldar who are 2 edition behind. As for Tyranid, they just got a new codex not too long ago, so I would not hold my breath.

2005 isn't that long ago?!
Normally there's about 5 years inbetween codex's (from my experience) so i'd say 2010/11 for the Tyranid book but then it might not come out for a lot longer.

Probably, but it may take a year or four before some race comes up. If they are smart they will do Dark Eldar, Deamon/witchhunter and Necron first -since they are 3rd edition- then Tau and tyranid -pure 4th ed codex- then Chaos space marine, ork, Eldar -4th ed codex with 5th ed in mind.

So yeah, doubtful the 'Nid codex will come out before 2011.

They really need to get the 3rd edition codex's updated because there rules seem a little odd in the 5th rules.
