Welcome to Librarium Online!
Me and some friends are trying to compile a list of all the Warhammer 40k Codexes in the proper order and year of release.
Dating from the most current/upcoming codex to the very first. I figured there would be no better place to get help than from you guys with building a list, or perhaps someone has already made a full list of such, could anyone offer me a link?
Correct us if we are wrong and feel free to add
Blood Angels 5th Ed - 2010 (upcoming)
Tyranids 5th Ed - 2010 (current)
Space Wolves 5th Ed - 2009
Imperial Guard 5th Ed - 2009
Space Marines 5th Ed - 2009
Orks 4th Ed - 2008
Chaos Daemons 4th Ed - 2008
Chaos Space Marines 4th Ed - 2008
Eldar 4th Ed - 2007
Tau Empire 4th Ed - 2007
Tyranids 4th Ed - 2005
That is all we have so far, help needed.
1. Tyranids - 15,000 pts
2. Chaos Space Marines - 7,100 pts
3. Space Marines - 6,000 pts

Wow I thought DE were older than Necrons.
WH 40k Armies (W/L/D):
Tyranid: 2250 Points of Awesome (5/4/1)
Necrons: 1000 Points (4/0/1)
I' not sure of the order, but i know the dark eldar were the second codex to be released in 3rd edition, first came Sapce marines, then dark eldar, I know dark eldar had a second editions release of there book with some vehicles upgrades and stuff added to the book.
Hard to call the 2003 version a second DE codex. I mean, it's only a small update really.
It seems to take 4-5 months for each codex release. Wouldn't that suggest a BA release being in May/June? Then we would get another codex around Oct/Nov, right?

I have a question about this. Which of the 4th edition codex was made with the 5th edition rules in mind and probably wont be updated in 5th edition?
