Going to a hardback codex something like what Fantasy did is highly expected in my book. I think the fantasy army books are extremly nice looking and a step or two above in quality what we currently have for 40k. My 40k codexes get pretty beat up fast, and the ink inside each ones tends to smear as it fades to darken each page. (perhaps too much re-reading of the pages).


Directly to the rumors, please take with salt.

6th ed codex will be hardback

and i didnt see a named warsmith, only the dark mechanicus guy
ill say this there are havoc's for marked legions

though each legion will get something unique to them, from force organization to individual units to hqs, for example night lords n world eaters can only have 1 heavy support but get other boni

remember huron has quite decent kit, so expect something like a 2nd ed list for him. also, in some ways picking a legion will restrict you, there are allot of chaos characters already in fluff so expect most to return, plus a few new faces

  3. Disappointed the Tau Codex won't be hardback. I love the hardback Fantasy Army Books.

    Am I hallucinating? Is my computer going haywire? I read: "6th ed codex will be hardback"

    Have I completely lost the plot, or is the title of this very post: "6th Edition Codex's Are Hardback: Some More Chaos Legions Rumors"?

    Be sure to read before commenting.

  8. because they would be making a far higher quality product that will, in addition to being nicer, last you longer. it is a wise choice for business because people will always buy quality. I fully expect to see all 6th ed codex in hardback as it will be in line with general quality improvements and by the way it costs no more to print different things in hardback because your material costs are the same.

  9. Copy and paste is a wonderful thing. Ghost21 said "CODEX". Title of this had "CODEX'S". Copy, paste, done! That's right I copied and pasted into my comments and only added the " before and after.

    You said "@ above
    i think he means the mainrulebook not the dexes"

    Whether a Legions Codex, or all Codexes, I believe he didn't mean the rulebook. Anybody else think a hardback rulebook is news? My previous 2 rulebooks were hardback.

  10. I don't care what the codex is made out of, only what's in it. Hardcover codices don't win games- well-written ones do.

  11. Every soft cover book I have received from GW except for my previous necron codex fell to pieces even after only one read through. I am happy to pay the difference for some quality.

  12. I usually pull my codecs apart and put them in sheet protectors all in a binder. Saves them from coffee, paint and other spills.

  13. Less than a week after I bought my current Chaos codex, it already looked older than most other books I own. I will be happy to pay the extra money for the quality.

  14. good to see the main antagonists of 40k getting some time in the spotlight for a change

  15. Not sure if I like this to be honest, they tend to be on the costly side. I've been buying every codex for 40k and armybook for fantasy for the better part of 10 years. I only broke my pattern this year with the Tomb King armybook since it was a bit too expensive to buy for a casual read.

  16. Shouldn't Huron be in the Traitor dex and not in the Legions dex?

  17. Yea Lucius it would make scense since Huron is the renegade poster boy.

  18. If true, Huron being in the Legions book points to it being the primary CSM book for legions as well as renegade CSM like the current book is, with "Chaos Renegades" being more LatD like.

  19. Huron cant be in the Legion book, hes a red corsair, they have no ties to the old legions at all.
