Been lurking for a week or two now and have developed a question of sorts.
I've been out of 40k a while now. 4ish years. 4th was about to come out when I had to quit modeling AND playing. =/
Now that I can, I wanna get back in. But apparently every codex I own is now outdated.
I have Tau, Guard, SM, DH, WH.
I've read that SM and Guard dexes are coming out soonish after 5th. But is the Tau Empire dex safe for a while? Should I go ahead and buy it, while I wait for Guard and SM?
The Tau, DH and WH dexes should be fairly safe. Gaurd are rumored to be coming out in late 09. Marines are the first army to be released after the new edition i think. There's a list of supposed updates that you can find (2009 40k Codex Schedule)HERE
The supposed update is keeping me away from gaurd for a while, I'm waiting to see if they nerf/remove my DropTroops idea (I doubt it, as then there'd be no reason for Ellysians)
I would be willing to bet that Chaos, Chaos Demons, Eldar, Tau, and Black Templars are safe.
I'm Solid Snake...also, I'm a Primarch.
By DH and WH do you mean Daemonhunters and Witch Hunters? If so, neither of those can be outdated, as they've never had more than one codex.
Firstly, yes I meant the Inquisitorial forces by DH and WH. I figured their dexes would be safe, as the mythical Xenos Hunters/Conglomerated Inquisition Codex is probably the only Codex that GW would delay in favor of Dark Eldar.
I guess I'll go ahead and grab the Tau Empire while I wait on the new Sm and IG.
All of the army codexs are safe to use still.
Your only have to worry if you choose a highly themed
army that can be allowed in a curent codex such as a all
bike space marine force or something like that.
If you chose a reasonably balcanced force from any
codex you wont have any much too worry about.
A Tau battlesuit will always be a Tau balltesuit and such.
And just because a codex becomes outdated you could
be able to use them in friendly games still as with the
lost and the dammed codex.
I AM BOOMER!
Id say the newest codexi are going to have a pretty long life before updating, so you should be safe with Eldar, Orks, CSM and Demons.
Imperial Guard is being redone as we speak, and is apparently out next year some time.
