Welcome to Librarium Online!
The rumours are floating around that we in 2010 will see:
- Nids in january 2010
- Marines later in the spring (possible a combined DA and BA)
- DE in the autumm.
- seems like no necrons or DH/inquistion in 2010, they are still early WIP.
Kudos to our friends over at Warseer:
Stucorb:And Harry (who is a reliable source):I was told by a friend of mine who is generally correct that the list for 40k release is Nids in Jan then a Marine dex (please don't complain to me) which is more than likely a return to 2nd ed where there was a codex Angels (DA + BA) which could also contain or have released at the same time BT. Then later on in the year Oct or Nov would be DE. As far as they know Necrons are in the distant future along with Inquisition.
To back up the nid release there have been a couple of pictures of the plastic Tyrogon which may feature in the dexSkaven are in November.I shot them down once when there was a lot of detail about the codex which I knew they had not even started at that point.Originally Posted by Hokiecow
Hasn't this rumor been shot down repeatedly by Harry or Brim?
They have started it now-Not next but coming.Originally Posted by silverstu
I'm sure the next thread will be "Inquisition are next.."
First release for 40K in 2010 ... Not Necrons or Dark Eldar ... will be Xenos.
Gutted about DE and Necrons, I was looking forward to their releases, shame they are at least a year away! Oh well...
yeah, but nids already have one of the newer codexes, necrons and DE dont, i would have thought that they would be getting all of them up to the new codexes before they release new stuff

necrons and dark eldar are still stuck with third edition codexes, although nids were the first to get 4 th edition, i dont think that they would get the above up to fith edition before upgrading the necs and DE to 5th, if anything, i would think that they would first upgrade necs and dark eldar to fith ed, then all the rest,
(the date are a bit muddled up but you get the idea)

Brimstone was hinting about a nid release next year back in February on Warp Shadow so you could probably count him as a pro-nids source.
I don't think the current financial stuff is effecting the codex releases. Codexes production is likely started years in advance. Considering the current financial crisis only really started last year then its highly unlikely that they would change their schedule around and "fast forward" some books and not put enough work into them. Or at least thats what I think.

Hmmm as the proud owner of two nid armies i don't know wether a new codex is good or bad. Judging by the marine,I.G and ork codexs i should be looking forward to it i guess. It was going to happen anyway so i might aswell be please about it.
Regarding the D.E and Inq codexs well i guess it's a shame as i was interested in doing D.E at some point but then again most D.E players still swear that their codex is still powerful.

While I generally agree, that would suggest Tau as being a high priority for a rewrite. I was hoping it would happen too, not because Tau need it but because most beginning gamers pick Tau (at least in my area) and wind up frustrated when they discover it's a handicap army. Redoing Tau with a massive dose of Codex Creep (I can't believe I just said that) would really help GW secure new fans.Codices for the most popular (hence most profitable) armies get the most consistent and timely updates.
Tyranids are kind of a surprise. Aside from the problem of very squishy troops, they still seem competitive--5E was very good to them.

For the record, the =I= haven't had a codex in what, seven years? They simply haven't been popular enough to warrant GW's full attention, I think. Ditto for Dark Eldar, and probably the Necrons too.
To be honest I was hoping for DE and Necrons too as some of my friends have been playing those armies lately. Ah well.
