No, the Tau do not need an Upgrade.

Why?

Because they are an Unwanted, Unneeded race who have gotten 2 codexes while Armies deserving of Updates (Dark Eldar, Necrons, Inquisition etc) have been left wanting

6. Chaos Codex of doom!!! (all they really have to do is throw out the current codex and reinstate the last one.)
7. Codex Emperor Loving freaks (IG, DH, WH)

That should cover it.

7? Are you mad? We should just have 1 Book, with all the Army lists in it.

I am sure nothing like that has ever been tried...

Oh wait, 3rd edition!

Looks like they decided not to go that route.

Years without a new FAQ is even worse.

GW need to take a page from WotC and update their Errata and FAQ's every 3 to 6 months. There is No excuse for them not to, they are just being lazy. If Yakface and co can make the INAT FAQ in their spare time, 1 dude with a Dakka Account and a Marker being paid to could fix it up in about 2 weeks

This is what should happen:

2. Necrons

3. Tyranids

4. Ordo Xenos

5. Codex cults: LATD, Genestealer cults, etc.

6. New alien race

7. Codex: Adeptus Mechanicus

8. Codex:Ecclessiarchy


This is the reality of what will happen:

1. Tyranids

2. Necrons

3. Some space marine variant

4. Space marines

5. New Rules edition

5. Space Marines

6. Some space marine Variant

7. Dark Eldar

8. Some space marine variant

9. New rules edition

10. Space marines...


You get the idea...

More specifically i'd like to see Codex: Ecclessiarchy becasue I think the whole religious zealotry side of thr Imperial faithful is so core to Imperial/40k fluff and makes for good modelling and good game/scenario fluff, etc.

This codex would expand the Eclessiarchy beyond sisters to include HQ choices like Confessors, Missionaries and so forth, have variant load out Penitent engines and arcos, , rabble troops like zealot mobs and fraternis militia, and have the various Ecclessiarchy special characters like Kyrov(sp?), etc. Would make for an awesome army both in fluff, imagery, modeling potential, etc. Of course GW will never do it, it makes too much sense.

C: AdMech could easily be done in a mini-dex.

Grouping codexes together in a two-fer isn't a half-bad idea. But would they both suck? Would only one be terrible? Would they both power creep their way to the top of the charts?

C: Ecclessiarchy would be fun, but C:WH is already quite competative. Really, just C: DH needs an overhaul. I guess I'm quite terrified of the idea of GW nerfing my Sisters army after I go to all the work to paint it even though all the CC units are unplayable.

I love and hate Space Marines...they are like the village bycycle, everyone gets a ride on them, and not only does everyone get a ride, but the amount of illegitimate offspring brought into the world because of that fact is staggering. And since everyone know it's their children, they are ALL going to be loved.

Anyway more Space Marine BS, Space Wolves are still pretty fing badass, if anything the new codex will nerf them.

This is my List

1# Dark Eldar (I'm sorry, they are about a decade over due)
2# Tau (I say this because 4th edition Tau special abilities mainly revolved around them not needing to take Target Priority..and boom...5th comes out, no more TP)
3# Tyranids (Over due obviously)
4# Necrons (They are relativity new, but they haven't been touched)
5# Something new, I'm saying a new race, something That is small, perhaps a coalition of small mercenaries from across the Galaxy; 40k Dogs of war perhaps?.

My friend just told me that putting WH and DH together in the same codex would be like putting IG and Orks together in the same codex because Ork players can loot tanks.

Why are Space Wolves getting a new codex at all? Until i heard that they were getting a new codex, i thought they were just another lost and forgotten variant of Spess MEhreens that no one ever played, sort of like the Praetorian IG.

I recede my earlier statements, DH don't need a new codex at all, but DAMN could the ENTIRE INQUISITION use some plastics! GK and SoB are entirely metal. (I hate metal models. I'm a bigger fan of Forgeworld resins.)

List time!

I'll go 3x3 for my list(s)...

1. Armies which need Codex updates
1. Space Wolves -- oldest Codex without an update, only Codex requiring another Codex to play
2. Sisters of Battle -- a fully-functional, stand-alone army that never should have been hit with the =I= stick; solves half of the Imperial Allies problem by removing stand-alone Witch Hunter Inquisitors
3. Necrons -- Codex with the most rules problems still in print

2. Armies which will get Codex updates
1. Space Wolves -- and about time!
2. Tyranids -- oldest "major" Codex not to get an update (Eldar, Orks, CSM, SM, IG all done)
3. Blood Angels -- only SM Codex not printed and sold as a Codex

3. Armies which never get another Codex
1. Dark Eldar
2. Squats
3. Pan Fo

i think all codexes should be in pdf style. sur that will never happen because they get to much money.
but the reason why.
1. we dont have to pay for it.
2. faster updates to codexes.

-to many points to bother to count.
