well questions in the title really, is it time?
gw are now considering space wolves, blood angels etc as seperate armies but it stilll doesnt take away the fact that races are still pretty thin and tactics between armies are slight
chaos space marines,space marines,WH,DH,blood angels,dark angels,space wolves, black templars are all in the same vain.
all the other armies contrast with these, and remembering when tau were released it gave the whole game a lift and refreshed it.
now the question is do the rules have enough scope to include another army/race or not...
if so what are your ideas for another race/army?
im personally interested in the traitor guard, mutants-cultists as a sort of side project and also after reading the SW codex thinking about a fenrisian native army complete with viking iconography and giant snow beasts
sorry may be in wrong section!

Well I´d like a completely new army, but then I´d prefer umbra or something like that...
On the other hand, there are codicies that are in dire need of an update since quite a while so that has to be priority..
+ We are changer, we are danger // Fallen angels, yet stranger +
+ WIP CSM & DH Exorcists in the making +
I'm currently going through the process of my next arym after completing my Tau, Ad Mech came to mind more than once and they can be easily incorporated into the IG Codex.
Anything that I do see that would be new in the way of a new race would be when the Tau get their release, which is rumoured to be released summer next year, other than that, it looks pretty bleak...
im in the same postion with eldar, me and my brother-in-law have tau and eldar and a shared tyranid army and there both still fine agaist the nids, i'd love to see a kroot codex as well as a proper one, i think they have been a success with the amount of people that have a sizeable force unfortunatly there a bit similar to dark eldar in the way they play, albeit slower
I would like to see a Kroot codex released. They look absolutely amazing and would be great to see some native Kroot animals.
As for struggling to release codecies, its purely because for some reason GW feel they have to release individual SM chapter codecies in between an entire races. I would be extremely suprised that if after the next codex (Dark Eldar IMO), we dont see a new Dark Angels/Black Templars codex. It really is annoying that SM gets so much preference over everyone else. Why not have it so that another races gets a 'sub codex'. Like Codex World Eaters or Codex Harlequins.
My Arena Champions: Kharn'eth The Bloodcleaver and Gorzag Iron Jaw
i completly agree, they both had 4th ed codexs so they cant be priorit,y save that for dark eldar and necrons.. but you know they will, i have no problem with SMs i love the look and the fluff but i'd never collect them i personally want something different, if they put as much effort into other races then they wouldnt be in a financial pickle relying on 50% of gamers playing with space marines..ive had a look at some kroot on a site called hive fleet moloch there abbsolutly stunning and also been having a look at kompletly kroot great website and they have done their own 5th ed codex..very good
yeah i love all the fluff about them, ive noticed the barghesi have had a few things mentioned recently aswell that could be quite interesting
Besides that, I would like to see some kind of brute race. Something new rather then picking up on races that already exist. Yeah, I know. Tyranides. But that's hardly making up for an army that's made to play with just large monsters.
In the power armour rush, I'm still waiting for a specific codex for each chaos god. Can't see why they can't do that along with the rest of the power armour.
And the last thing I want to see is something more from the human universe. We've already got plenty from it (thank you space marines.)
All the Squats are dead. The only chance is to bring demiurg (effectivly squats but not)into the game. A brute race???? Orcs anyone?
Maybe expand kroot, vespid, and put the demiurg in thier as a xenos codex, similar to the old eldar craftworld codex but greatly expanded.
Otherwise, theres so much going on already in 40K i dont see what aspect isnt already in thier as far as possible armies go. Expansion codexes for other races, like how space marines have BA, DA, BT, SW, would be nice. Like Eldar exodites, Chaos traitors and legions, Imperial guard factions like catachan, valhallen, tallarn, pretoria etc. The list goes on.
I think new races are played out in 40K and should just expand on exsisting lore with armies.
