Best Sources for race/army xyz fluff?
« on: July 13, 2017, 04:43:12 AM »
Has any one come across a list of the best sources of fluff for each race/army? For example if some one was asking about Eldar you would probably refer them to:

White Dwarf 127
2nd Edition codex
Path of the xxx series

I'd say the lexicanium


And then each article lists their sources if you want to learn more.

I'd say that the second edition codices are the best source of narrative information because that's where a substantial amount of the original background for many of the races comes from, and/or was re-printed from even older Rogue Trader sources.  Some older material can also be of interest, such as the old hardback Ork material (e.g. Freebooterz) and the two Realms of Chaos books (Slaves to Darkness and Lost and the Damned).

Chapter Approved, collections of White Dwarf articles on Space Marines, is probably the best source for fluff on a number of less-served space marine chapters (as well as the more commonly showcased ones), like the Iron Hands and Raven Guard, although much of that fluff has been superceded by the Horus Heresy series of novels (not always for the best).
