Welcome to Librarium Online!
So I'm new to WH 40K and was trying to figure out what army is right for me. I've been to the hobby shop, got the big rule book, talked to the locals (who all seem pretty cool) and to pic an army they all say find something to match your personality with models you like.
After some thought, my personality and battle strategy would most closely be related to a bar fight, and the orcs seem the closest match, with some nice models (minus some of the nasty 2nd edition models I saw on ebay).
So my question is, when is the new codex coming out. I thought I'd start collecting a couple boxes of shoota boyz, an HQ, and some tank bustaz, to get the painting and so forth started... but without the codex I'm kinda stuck.
Thanks... ahhh... errr... WAAAGH?!:w00t:
I heard sometime around next year, maybe?
Monkey's Killer Kan WiP (Updated 4/29)
Well it's only 15$ so it don't hurt that bad. My big fear was getting an army up, then having a bunch of units I didn't need, but I'll start basic, with foot sloggers.
Thanks for the info.
By the way what is fluff, it sounds girly.
Fluff is the other part of the game from the "crunch" - it's the setting, the background of the game. The "crunch" is the hard stuff, it's what's necessary to play the game. Fluff isn't necessary, but it adds a dimensions which I absolutely love to the game.
