Can't name my source, but this person is a fairly new source to me so please take this with a large helping of salt. I can't even be sure that I can trust this person 100% yet. We'll see if I can trust him if what he said actually comes to pass.

Codex: Necrons (Late October & all November)
Codex: Tau Empire (Early 2012)
6th Edition AND Codex: Legions of Chaos (Mid 2012)
Codex: Eldar (Late 2012)

The following are supposedly to be released in 2013, but I was not given a specific release order. With that said, the following is NOT in order of release.

Codex: Dark Angels (2013)
Codex: Sisters of Battle (2013)

He/She mentioned that there would be a third Codex in 2013, but couldn't give me specifics as to what it was (or was unwilling to at this point in time). He/She mentioned quite a lot of other things as well (6th Edition, narratives, etc), but I don't want to push too much out there when I don't know if I can trust this person yet or not. So again, please take this with a grain (or a spoonful) of salt.

It's actually hard to believe that Codex Tau would come right after Codex: Necrons. There needs to be a Space Marine codex in between.

Or maybe Codex: Necrons is the Space Marine codex.

:Release Order:
Orks
Space Marines + 5th Edition of Marinehammer
Imperial Guard
Vampire Marines
Tyranids
Wolf Marines
Dark Eldar
Silvershiny Supermarines
Sisters of Battle
Robot Marines
Tau Empire
Spiky Marines + 6th Edition of Marinehammer
Eldar
Dark Marines
Sisters of Battle
Crusader Marines??
Orks??
Space Marines??
Tyranids 2nd wave??
(Rinse and Repeat)

Taken that way, it's much more believable.

Doubt the Necrons are being considered a marine chapter. Plus, there are rumors about DA & BT chapters.

I don't think two xenos releases would be totally crazy. However, no SM codex for 3-4 releases does seem VERY unlikely.

And hooray for Tau! (if it's true)

it goes against their usual release process, which is Marine/Non-Marine/Marine. Having 2 xenos books in a row then the long awaited Legions of Chaos book would be really, really strange for GW.

It's not that unusual. If you look at the 4th edition releases, the pattern doesn't really hold.

They were:

Black Templars - Tau Empire - Eldar - Dark Angels - Chaos Space Marines - Orks - Chaos Daemons

They've certainly broken the pattern before, so it's not unthinkable that they'd do it again.

GamesPoet wrote:Doubt the Necrons are being considered a marine chapter.
Sure they are. Chaos Space Marines are a marine "chapter" with an addition of cult marines (the important ones have FNP). Necrons are a hidden "marine" chapter consisting exclusively of Scouts with a FNP-derivative. It's like fielding an army of Blood Angels Scouts and attaching Sanguinary Priests (borrowed from the Blood Angel bro-fisting) all over the place. Necrons, being mostly of Space Marine Scouts, are thus faster and their Rhinos and Land Raiders are skimmers. Rumor has it that Plague Marines and Grey Knight Interceptors will be in the codex; they'll be named more NecronMarine-friendly names such as Immortals and Crypteks, of course. Plus, the NecronMarine Captain Special Characters revealed are actually rather cool-sounding.

Again, just going with what I was told by somebody who may or may not be questionable. He/She was pretty detailed in his/her description of Codex: Tau Empire though, so either he/she was incredibly creative and pulling it out of his/her arse or it was completely true. Some of the stuff he/she said seemed to coincide with a lot of the Tau Empire rumors that are out there right now.

I actually asked him/her about why there wasn't an Imperial release in all of this. He/She stated that Imperial Guard would be getting some new models and Finecast sometime during or shortly after the Holiday season. As for the reasoning, if I recall what he/she said correctly, they said that with 6th Edition Chaos would become even more of a major threat to the entire galaxy and not just to the Imperium (the long arm of Chaos has apparently, somehow, now reached the Tau Empire, hence Tau coming out prior to 6th). Chaos Space Marines rules will also apparently be getting a White Dwarf update as Renegade Marines (don't know why, he/she never elaborated as to what exactly Chaos Legions/Legions of Chaos was or how it differed from Chaos Space Marines or Daemons).

Hopefully my source isn't just relaying rumors they heard and actually has some inside info. If it is true this may very well be the first time we see this many Codex releases that don't have a single Imperial book within 4-5 releases. If it's not true well...balls...wasted a good hour of my life interviewing said person and probing them for information.

Again, take with a grain of salt. If it's true, wow. If not, another article for the Rumour Rubbage Bin.

EDIT: If anything, I'm really disappointed at not even a single mention of Black Templars. Really want to start a Templars army but with how behind they are power-wise I've been holding off, hoping that they get a new Codex. If this stuff is true...could be waiting a while. :(

A lot of that is what we've already heard from previous rumours. If they're not simply regurgitating what's already out there, they're probably the same source BoK got their OMG HUGE 6TH EDITION LEAK from.

I think assuming that GW does not plan that far ahead is a bit silly, I work for a company a lot smaller than GW and we have 2015 projects on the table.
A company whos product relies on a strong cohesive narrative would certainly be thinking 2 years down the road.

Well we do know they plan that far ahead, Harry noted they'd been working on Dreadfleet for two years and where already working on the next one.

They've also had longer plans in the past, just because 'we' don't have a clue whats happening in the future, doesn't mean they don't.


I have no idea on these rumours, but to suggest they have no plans further than one year ahead is laughable, things might change the order about on occasion, but they'll be planning and working on ideas well in advance.

My understanding is that there are few rumourmongers given more credibility than Harry over on warseer and he has stated that the Tau models are about 90% done and while he doesn't know exactly if Tau are next since he doesn't bother to keep track of 40k stuff quite as much because it doesn't really interest him what he did say is that based on what he can recall they are slotted in as the April release net year and the last before 6th ed......

Fixed that for you

But it seems odd to be theres no vanilla marine codex as is customary at each edition... More annoying is not being able to play DA again for maybe 2 years... But lets hope that eldar rumours are true, a year to save I should be able to afford a single squad by then

Not sure if you follow Warseer, but between Harry and Ghost21 there is quite a bit of information. Between these two rumor mongers it seems as though one sculptor has spent the better part of 18 months reworking the line. A number of dual purpose kits are planned including a dual vespid kit and more choices for Kroot. It was also stated that Demigurg are in but 'bizzare' and not what is expected. Not sure what this means. There are also hints that another, four armed critter might be included as well. And a large ship/ vehicle or some sort.
As others have stated, this is mostly complete and awaiting the green llight for release.

Please do not let my unwillingness to accept your unique, personal opinion as fact stop you from cramming your beliefs down the throat of more vulnerable members of the Internet community.
Have a nice day.

Naaaaa... It seems unlikely, and there are dexes that need a redo much more: Templars... (for they still are 3rd), Chaos (they are the ubervillains... and have a crappy codex), Dark Angels ( obvious)...
In addition Tau already have pretty nice kits so... I don't think they're going to remake them...

I don't even think this part qualifies as rumor anymore. The only Necron stuff in October will be articles in the WD. Everything else is in November.

If these rumors are true, I'm thinking Farsight is going to Chaos.

Expanded Reach of Chaos, (possible) Daemon Blade wielding commander of Tau Forces far exceeding his expected lifetime. Excellent mix for Chaos right there. (All the little Dark Tau children will be so happy).

Should be fun to see how things shake out anyway that they do.
