With the release of the Witch Hunter WD codex and the talk of Chaos legions WD codices I have been thinking about the potential of future WD releases. Would you guys like to see more? Maybe as supplements the proper 'Dexes?
For example, as an Ork player I think it would be awesome to get a WD release for the differant clans to go alongside the proper Dex. Snake Bites with Squigoths, Cyboars and Snotlings? Evil Sunz with Meks instead of Nobz, Battlewagon varients? Bad Moonz with Stompa's and Teleportas? Rebel Grots? HELL YEAH.
Obviously there are lots of candidates. Salamnders? Exodites? You get the point. So yeah, do you think this idea would work? Would you like to see more? What would you like to see??
I had this thought when the rumor of the Chaos Legions codex being a White Dwarf codex was brought up. I think it would be great if they put in White Dwarf supplemental codices for different army "factions" that are official rules. Things where there wouldn't be quite enough for a full codex. Each army would still have its official Codex for the main rules. There's a lot of potential with Craftworlds, Ork clans, Hyve fleets, IG armies, or even other SM chapters as you said. I'd love to see it.
Leave supplements to forgeworld ... if you can convince them to make something other than dreadnoughts, IG superheavies, rhino doors, and retro units for the next 5 years.
More stuff (regardless of perceived quality) is always good. It fills in the space between codexes and brings some attention back to lines that all of three people play. Plus it makes WD something to pick up again.
They don't have a good record with army supplements either - see codex:free stuff for eldar (the old craftworld mini-dex)
As for the sisters ... they were re-released to clear up things for everyone who wasn't playing sisters, by underlining the removal of allied/inducted units and replacing the various inquisition and assassin units with a gimped cut and paste job from the GK book. The resultant 'codex' is as shallow as a child's paddling pool, as balanced as a british tabloid newspaper, and is quite significantly worse than the 7 year old list it replaced.

I agree with A.T. I mean the SOB WD codex was horribly recieved. I felt insulted when I saw the battle report. Like GW saying "Our fans are too stupid to catch these horrible lies in this 'prime' example of how an army, which specilizes in flame weaponry, can barely stand up to a horde army." And didn't they even skip an actual codex slot just to pump it out?
In theory it would be nice to have them putting out simple patches and answers in WD and maybe even a special faction update codex. But it really just looks like they are putting more onto their already troubled schedule. And even if they started to do that, then it just gives them the excuse to pump out more unplaytested crap.
Remember how console and computer games were polished before they hit the store? Now they can just send out what whatever they want, let the consumer suffer and find the glitches themselves, and then pump out a patch when it suits them.
There are three types of people in this world -- those who can count, and those who cannot.
Forgeworld is cool if your playing like 3000+ points, want to use superheavies, get permission from your opponent and have a shed load of cash to splash. I dont really think it would fill the same niche.
