    Can someone tell me why Chaos got a new dex?

    I was honestly unable to think of any reason why CSM would get a new dex. Besides being fairly popular what about Orks or Dark Eldar? I know DE need a new dex and orks i've heard need one or at least have one of the older dex's.

    1) The old one was put of date.

    2) It was the most broken list in the game.

    3) It had had several secret reprints that GW never said anything about so you found some people had true T5 obliterators while others read 4(5).

    4) Chaos were getting on a bit and they are a fairly large seller so they took priority over some of the races you mentioned.

    5) They didn't need to be completely rebuilt - a lot of their models didn't change as overall it was mostly a rules change.


    Races likes orks and DE need a complete rebuild - models, rules, background the lot and that is very time consuming.

    Then you have to factor in the economical side of things - DE don't generate much cash for GW so they are pretty much at the bottom of the pecking order when it comes to updates.

    For the rules for this weapon refer to the book of this, which then refers you back to the book of that, then back to the armory!!!

    1) chaos codex was ridiculus! i mean come on 100 terminators in a single FOC!

    2) second most widly purchsed army(or is that eldar? i think thier about the same actually)

    3)new ORK DEX IS COMING SOON!!!!!!!!!

    4)DE are kinda being slowly removed by gw. at least until they can take as many demons as chaos(go COdex DeMOns!!!!) so sit tight until ater demon oex which is(probably) after ork codex which is after apocolypse

    Because I finally found a nice army to play with, and GW decided that I'm not allowed to have that!

    Now half of my army is illegal under the new rules.

    Finally fixed the link!

    the main reason why the new codex is the same as most other armies, they need to be updated for 4th edition rules. as said before gw is getting all the easy changes out first, that is probably why tau empire was first because they only had a couple of changes to make

    I like the new codex. Apart from nerfing the obliterators a bit, and removing specific daemons from the list, it's really easier to read and build from.
