Welcome to Librarium Online!
Does anyone know when the Chaos codex will be updated? I know Dark Angels are coming up next.
Nobody knows for certain except for the officials that aren't speaking about it. It's speculated that they're soon to be next, though I personally feel DE and Orks should be redone long before Chaos is. The Chaos Codex is quite good right now, and is still plenty balanced, even in 4th Edition.
Also, punted to the correct subforum, as well as giving it a more proper title.
at best it would be late next year, DA are next somewhere around april or may, after it most likely orks but little can be said about it.
It doesn't look too bad. I'm concerned about buying models and such if they will be redone in a year... who likes to have to buy all new ones? Then again, you can still play with the old ones... right?
Second question ... do they always update models with the codex release? I don't have much experience with it, but they completely overhauled the Eldar it seems.
Also, on that list there it has 3 different entries for CSM, with the earliest being end of 07, the next possibility being April of 09. That's a huge difference in time frame. Some of the people that posted said it will be separate codices for each legion, but then why would they wait 2 years to release those?
Strangeness. I can't wait until Chaos gets updated... i'm looking forward to a nice boost in power.
Of course you can still play with the old ones.
generally they do, it is kind of expected of GW to update models with the codex.
not sure about the third question.
Seperate codices for each legion is doubtfull as no legion has enough fluff and such to earn a seperate codex, also according to rumours there will be only about 3 codices which isn't enough for all the chaos legions.
Still we'll have to wait until thrustworthy rumours start to appear.
That is a distinct possibility, more likely the the chaos cults and the unvided will each get their own book.
I suppose that could actually work especially if they put the lists for the Lost and the Damned, The Alpha Legion and the Word Bearers together as these would fir in with the whole cult list. However I really do not see it happening anytime soon, if ever.
Basically life sucks, there is only war and you're probably gonna get eaten by Tyranids, have fun.
