Ok... I recently got into Warhammer 40K - specifically the Dark Angels. I have only mustered a small force as of yet and realise if I wish to play against my mates I'm going to have to know the rules. I recently purchased the Dark Angel codex, and noticed it was also necessary to buy the Space Marine codex. However my friend tells me that if I buy the Warhammer 40K rulebook it will have the Space Marine codex in it... is this true?
If that jumble of sentence was to complicated I'll make it SIMPLE for all yo skim readers: does the Warhammer 40K rulebook contain the space marine codex?
I have no I idea why it should but my friend says it does so - yeah. Btw yeah I'm new :blush: and yes I realise this may be in the wrong topic but it has to do with space marines so whatever! :hmm:
Thanks for any help given guys
If you do not have the old rulebook them you definatelly should buy the new one, otherwise you will have to make the decision to buy it anyway or look around for update files (in the GW web site).
Indeed you will need codex space marines to play with Dark Angels but I would wait for the new one coming out next month or so....

Get your sig from-tHe BaD GuY
Actually, I wouldn't buy ANYTHING but the main 40k rule book right now. The new Space Marine codex is due out in like 6 weeks, so don't go wasting 30+ dollars on it right now.
Besides, if you are just getting in to the game, then it's more important to get a good grasp on the main rules first.
btw, your mates were not correct in telling you that the Space Marines are in the new rule book. There are no army lists in this edition because they didn't change the game that much this time.
Alright thanks.... now we play the waiting game .
