"Since Warhammer 40,000: Dark Imperium was launched, we have released several codexes, but there are still plenty of Factions – Orks, Drukhari, Necrons etc. – that don’t yet have a codex of their own. Chapter Approved gives these players a sneak peek of what many of these factions can expect when their codex is released "

hmm kind of wounder if chapter approved it going to FAQ the Necron codex then lol.

Probably not. When they wrote that article, Necrons didn't have a codex (and still don't).

It's good to see that the Thousand Sons seem to be getting their codex later this year.  They certainly need it, based on the costing issues in the index.

I've no concerns about waiting for the Eldar codex.  Whether it not coming out before 2018 means that new models are in the pipeline I'm not sure about.  In any case, I still use a mixture of Rogue Trader, second edition, third edition, and fourth edition Eldar models, so it makes no difference to me either way.  If the new codex is being released next year to coincide with new models, then I do hope that they get rid of the ghastly resin Aspect Warriors, as that resin is awful.

There's what 30 codexes to produce, 10 in the first 6 months, so maybe 18-24 months to get through all of them. Atleast the armies with out a dex will be getting annual updates.

Are there actually 30?  All the codexes that I can think of off the top of my head since 3rd edition (with some amalgamations), plus ones the rumour mill seems to be suggesting are on the horizon. I'm not including the small supplements (e.g. Iyanden, Raukaan)

Space Marines
1- Space Marines (aka: Ultramarines)
2- Blood Angels
3- Dark Angels
4- Space Wolves
5- Grey Knights/Daemonhunters
6- Deathwatch
7- Black Templars
8- Legion of the Damned
9- Adeptus Custodes

Non-SM Imperium
1- Imperial Guard
2- Catachans
3- Tempestus
4- Imperial Agents/Assassins/Inquisition
5- Sisters of Battle/Witch Hunters
6- Knights
7- Adeptus Mechanicus
8- Skitarii
9- Sisters of Silence

Chaos
1- Chaos Space Marines
2- Deathguard
3- Thousand Sons
4- Daemons

Eldar
1- Craftworld Eldar
2- Dark Eldar
3- Harlequins
4- Ynarri (speculating that they might get their own codex at some point)

Other Xenos
1- Tyranids
2- Genestealer Cults
3- Orks
4- Tau
5- Necrons

I've got 31 there. Wow, I'm actually kind of surprised it's that many. Obviously some are relatively small and/or short-lived. And I may have skipped some.

If we assume that all of the smaller supplements will be expanded into full codices then the list expands quite a lot (especially on the Space Marine front, but also if every major Eldar craftworld gets its own book too).  I can't seem them churning out that many books, but I've been surprised before.

Breaking News – Studio Preview from the NOVA Open! – Warhammer

So we have confirmation of the next 3 Codexes this year:

Eldar
Tyranids
Astra Mili......Imperial Guard

What do people think? Great news that we get some of the Heavy Hitters done before we turn inevitably back to Marines...or is it bad that this may be too soon to release things like Plastic Aspects and the like; so a probable Codex only release in each case?

I'm super happy about the IG arriving before Christmas, but at that rate it would be safe to assume that there will be no new IG models?

I wouldn't expect much in the way of new models, no. Seems to me like they're just trying to get all the books out to support the model range they have now.

Maybe one or two kits, but I doubt we'll see things like resculpts, etc. Plastic Aspects are way overdue, though.

I'm really excited. I can't wait to see what kind of command benefits the Eldar are gonna get. I'm hoping for some webway strike type action where you can either deepstrike or hold stuff in reserves.

Also hoping for some buffs to the Fire Prism, Falcon or even Support Batteries. Eldar long range AT is really weak. Having to plow through ungodly fire power with a Wave Serpent every single game to deliver your AT doesn't seem the "Eldar way". Hopefully they'll get little balance in that department.

As predicted, Guard are next on the list. Eight regiments but sadly still no Praetorians.

Hopefully the artillery and conscripts get points increases and/or tweaks, as they are pretty silly right now.

The text on the WH community site seemed to indicate that Conscripts are going to be squishier.

I personally hope they do something to make artillery worth taking (assuming you mean Basilisks/Manticores/Deathstrikes/Etc). Right now all those things suck pretty damned bad. The Leman Russ could use a pretty serious boost, too.

It's really that Wyvryns, and manticores are amazing for their price. particularly the wyvryns.

I've seen no one take anything else.

Wyverns *are* pretty good. Too good? Not convinced, really. Depends on what you're bringing. Can't see them doing too much to MEQs.

It's now Orktober. If the Ork codex doesn't come out this month then GW has no soul.

As expected, next three codexes are Blood Angels, Dark Angels, then Chaos Daemons early next year.

HUGE news. My Tau friend is hitting the roof. My Necrons friend is crying with joy. My Dark Eldar friend is considering painting his models. 2018 is the year for Xenos!

Meanwhile, my Orks are actually doing pretty ok on Index rules, which is kind of hilarious.

2018 is the year for Xenos!

There's only one way to solve that problem. Clearly Deathwatch need to get updated ASAP and deal with all this Xenos scum...

...says the guy who's been playing Eldar since forever, and only started Deathwatch because they came in the box with all the Harlequins and plastic Eldrad.

But seriously, glad to see DE and Tau getting some attention. Necrons... meh, I'm less excited about. But maybe this new codex will make them seem less boring?
