Welcome to Librarium Online!
I went to Gamesday yesterday and looked round hoping to find out anything about the 5th Edition Necron codex? But the message I was given by designers and developers were that it was the last thing on their minds and that very little work had been done towards it. The codexes they are currently working on are Dark Eldar, Space Wolves and Imperial Guard.
So sorry guys looks like we may not see a new Necron codex till either Xmas 2009 or early 2010. This also means that my C'tan rumor and others related to the new list could be total bull.
On the positive side We can keep using the Nightbringer for another year or so.
Well this was the first release date i had heard of for Cron 5e, so o well
Thats no good is it? Although I dont play necrons, I really find them interesting and would love to play as them one day. Hopefully by then youll have a new codex hey.

That really sucks. I was looking forward to the new codex and I don't even play them. You put it perfectly though Gauss and I'm hoping that someone goes and slaps some sense into those guys at GW to get them started on the Necron codex faster than they seem to have planned. Well we'll just have to wait and see what the future holds.
I guess either necron armies are not that popular or these other races rules aren't yet prepaired to be played on 5th edition.
Patience is a virtue!!
patience is an emotion that causes turmoil in the child races who were sleeping in the womb of their infant dieties while we conquered the universe. we are not patient we are not kind....we wait...
Dear Game Designer,
Rock is Cheese. Paper is fine.
It does seem a bit nuts that there hasn't been a new Necron codex for 7 years, how many space marine codexes have come out in that time frame? I suppose GW are naturally going to support their more popular armies first rather than bringing everyone up to date. Quite the shame though, it would be nice to see more variety especially in tournies which sometimes are mostly marine players (not that they necessarily win tournies mind).
Damn, I've been really looking forward to a new codex. Oh well, at least it'll be a long time before they break my 10 MC army
