we don't really know if they test or not, but from the simple errors we get with their books it is likely that there is not more than one revise (if any at all)


We don't have official confirmation from GW, but we do at least have those who claim to be. TTT and TTT (Titans and Tactics) each have at least one member of their teams as GW testers. Titans' tester (Brian) states that there are various teams for each book, but his explicit role is to look at the proposed rules and identify/test broken combos from them. If I remember right, one of them claimed that their last interaction with WIP rules was 7-8 months ago and that was in Aug/Sep.

Then, of course, GW only takes their feedback into account, rather than a direct course of action. That doesn't mean it's good...or even remotely adequate, but these external testers exist. I have nothing on GW's internal testing, though I assume they at least put a half-hearted effort into it.

I could see it finally being the Ynnari codex though. There's long been talk of something for it.


God I hope not..
3 character models should not have a codex.. And I say this as somebody who uses occasional ynnari character in my CWE army.

A WD ruleset done well would be perfectly sufficient like assasins.

In reality Ynarri characters, named or generic, should've been treated like Inquisitors.

I picked up the new Space Marines Codex today and according to the back cover it was printed in the UK. I too thought all the print material was done in China now.

Huh. That's a big shift. I knew Warcry and a couple minor books were, but that's new for mainline books (both the main rules and mission packs are printed by in China, either by C&C or Artron).
Sadly, that helps account for the increased price tag on the SM and Necron books.

I think their hardbacks are done by a UK firm and their softbacks and card stock are done in china. Cardprinting machines would be great for GW considering that GW seems to only like making one order for card related products from overseas

That hasn't been true for years- hardbacks have been done in China (most of the 8th ed codex line, of AoS I can only account for Gloomspite, but that's also China). CA 2018 was China as well, as were the Indexes as the start of 8th, so was Know No Fear from the 8th starter.
Its only been the occasional softback like the Warcry rules that comes from the UK.

Rumour is they're trying to bring cards (and transfers) in-house, but keep hitting problems (such as the neighbouring rail system taking up all the high-voltage power infrastructure).

I realise that this aspect isn't news, but could someone explain to me the logic of consolidating the SM factions into a single book . . . only to then release separate codices/supplements for each of them anyway?

Doesn't that just make the whole consolidation entirely pointless? Surely if you're hellbent on releasing separate books for each colour of SM, then you might as well just keep them in separate books?


Well if you're cynical, the guy who plays DA and UM now has to buy three books instead of two books, and download three FAQ's isntead of two etc.

Flip side, all the shared units are in the one book, all the uniques will be in the other so I don't have to worry if Terminators in the this book at different than the terminators in the that book.

Still, it's odd that after saying that, that they don't just tell us in the new update that DA is the one coming out in January.


Its almost as if they think their customers might be just a little stupid? So they make 6 different Captain datasheets not trusting the player to turn MV6 into Mv5 or Mv 14 etc based on their wargear?
