Bring back Squats, (Space Dwarves).
Lost and the Damned, (Chaos cultists).
The Adeptus Mechanicus.
Inquisition - Xenohunters.
New army or race, (please specify in your post).
What army without a codex deserves one?
There are several codex books that need a makeover, Necrons and Dark Eldar the most obvious. However there are many forces detailed in the 40K universe that have no codex and no sign of one.
Above is a list of choices of armies and races that have no codex. Which of these do you think that you would most like to see getting their own codex?

I opted for Lost and Damned. I really want a 'rebel' codex that could be used to cover chaos and genestealer cultists, planetary rebellions or mercenary armies. A couple of the others, especially squats and to a degree AdMech can be done with current codices but 'stealer cults are just too tricky.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
Kroot, no doubt in my mind.
Many of those other options deserve at least a current Chapter Approved (do they even make those anymore?) mini-codex, but Kroot would really work well with a Codex that 100% belongs to them.
It's just a shame that the old Chapter Approved write-up they got is now outdated. If it was current and legal, I'd start a Kroot army in a heartbeat.
Bring back the glorious days of Gorka-Morka where a Grot could be his own and try to take over if not the universe then atleast a single planet.
I voted for the Lost and the Damned. They need their own codex, because traitors and heretics are a very common problem in the Imperium. Not only that, it used to be a legitimate codex, so GW would have no problem with filling out LatD codex with cool fluff or units
The Wolf time is upon us!
Rep for the Rep God! Positive for the Positive Throne!
Armies: Space Wolves, Imperial Guard, Emperors Children, Necrons, Eldar
Though it isn't exactly an entire codex per-se, forge world has put out rules for fielding a kind-of LatD army in their Imperial Armor books 5-7. There are rules and background and everything like that, including the use of demons and CSM. The only problem is that I don't believe that one can use those armies in RT tournaments or things like that, though the rules are definitely approved by GW for random play.
But as for which one I would like to see have an official GW codex of their own, it would have to be LatD

Gaah, so many good options... I voted Exodites, but what I'd really wanted to see was putting Chaos cultists into Chaos Space Marines codex, Exodites into Eldar codex and Genestealer cults into Tyranid codex. Could be done pretty easy, too: Just put certain preprequisites into when and how many you can take each of those unist depending on what HQs, Elites or Troops you are fielding.
Revenant Moon Necrons: (W/L/D) 0/1/0 (6th edition: 13/2/2)(5th edition: 14/6/4)(3rd edition Codex: 16/4/7)
XIX Legion: (W/L/D) 0/0/0 (5th edition: 14/12/2)(5th edition Codex: 4/3/0)
Black Legion: (W/L/D) 1/0/0 (6th edition: 2/3/0)
Something Wicked... Reikwald Beastmen: (W/L/D) 10/4/1
Its got to be LatD, armies of traitor guard and rebelions are far more common than Chaos Marine activity, they are one of the most active things in 40k Fluff and Background that dont have their own codex, Exodites are very few in number, Kroot dont have much of an influence in ther own right, Adeptus Mechanicus can be done with Marine dex (there is an army in my store) Gene stealer cults arnt really big enough to be involved in the scale of games we play, they are Kill team size forces. and squats.......... yeah.
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
~~ Surrender and serve me in life, or die and slave for me in death~~
honestly i don't think 40k needs any more rule books but i'd love to see some merging of rule books:
1. chaos daemons, chaos space marines, lost and the damned = Servants of the Dark Gods
2. inquisition, witch hunters, grey knights, death watch, imperial guardsmen = guardians of Man
3. Space marines and their varients = swords of the emperor
4. exodite eldar, craft world eldar = Eldar
5. Harliquins, squats, kroot, humans, adeptus mechanicus (possibility) = Mercenaries of the galaxy, a codex that can be used in conjunction with other rule books
