My brother was at my local GW store the other day and was talking to one of the workers there who he is good friends with, and he said that the next issue of White Dwarf should tell us about a new 40k codex getting released very soon. He said that the other games had have next content release and it was time for a 40k release. He believes this to be Black Templars or Tau.

I don't know if he is right but has anyone else heard anything about this ??

Sorry if something like this has already been posted lately.

News to me, I was sure it was Dark Angels.

We love what we love. Reason does not enter into it. In many ways, unwise love is the truest love. Anyone can love a thing because. That's as easy as putting a penny in your pocket. But to love something despite. To know the flaws and love them too. That is rare and pure and perfect.

Hasn't the new issue of WD already been leaked? It only talks about nids/space wolf 2nd waves next mounth. On top of that much more reliable rumours say the month after is the new paint range. Rumours seem to sujest that the new paint releases will take up all of april.

No offence, but I'm quite sure your friend in mistaken as others have said.

The spine of the last two WD's have started to make an image... one that is so far is very Dark Angel's like.

The next WD will add to this and should give us a better idea of what's to come... assuming of course this is GW's intention.

Next Codex is Dark Angels, followed by Chaos Space Marines. This follows GW's business plan of "release more marines, all the time".

The WD dude is either a Dark Angel or a Chaos marine, Templars are a bit too niche for GW to redo them at this point. Dark Angels can make them a lot more money, especially if the new Ravenwing is any good.

A new Tau codex would be cool, but a new DA codex would be even better. I've held off buying Ravenwing battleboxes in anticipation of a new codex, hoping they get revamped.

There are some Tau rumors here.

Is there much point in releasing a new codex now when the rumours are that the new rule book is not too far away?

I have to agree a smart way to go on a buisness plan would be to wait untl the new edition to release any more codex's

A new Tau release this year would be amazing. I would gladly buy a codex and new models 1-2 months before the new rule edition released. I'm sure other Tau players agree with me, we need the update almost as badly as the Necrons did. If the Tau get the same treatment as the metallic undead then there's another $500 to $600 of my money that'll go straight to GW.

PS - Here's hoping the XV-9 Hazard Close Support Battlesuit makes it into the codex, and gets a plastic kit. Even at $40 apiece I'd buy 3 of them.

Sums it up nicely methinks.

Thanks to the Op for bringing these further snippets to our attention, I think though this is best covered in t'other threads. Appreciate the thought though.

The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all
We love our superheroes because they refuse to give up on us. We can analyze them out of existence, kill them, ban them, mock them, and still they return, patiently reminding us of who we are and what we wish we could be.
Children worship their toys. They ask of them what Men have always asked of their Gods: joy and forgetfulness.
For the record, the Jetsons massively misrepresented how cool the future was going to be.
