Here is a release schedule like nothing we have been hearing but from another confident source. It makes Tau the next codex, and I can hear the celebrating and cheering from all the Tau fans around the world.

Please remember to take with a grain of salt

via Stickmonkey
My sources are giving me the following general timelines of codex releases
Q1/2 - tau (or flipped w BT)
Q2/3 - BT ( possible WD codex)
Q3 - 6 Ed
Q3/4 - eldar

2013 getting fuzzy
Q1 - SM
Q2/3 - chaos legions (new)
Q4 - ig or orks!

2014. So much could order given

This is a long way out, and a lot could change, but we know the studio has long lead times.

Cheers, Merry Christmas.


  1. I don't think that Legions is that far out, there is too much talk about them ;)

  2. Am I really going to have to wait that long for DA? Still it beats a Wd codex. On a second read I still didn't see any SoB's. Have they been bumped again.?

  3. Thx for the info. I hope that this is wrong, tho. I'm really waiting for Legions in 2012.

    I'm ok with Tau and BT, that's what we've been hearing all along. Eldar? Okay, they've been in the mix as well. But a new SM-codex before Chaos? Now that would tick me off...


  4. Yeah, Legions being that far out makes me sad, and I am prone to not believe it either.

  5. Seems odd that daemons and tyranids are listed since the 5th edition armies still need releases:

    Skarbrand, Ku'gath, Blue Scribes and plastic Plague Bearers for daemons.

    Tervigon, Tyrannofex, Harpie, Myceptic Spore, Parasite of Mortrex, Doom of Malantai, Swarmlord and the various weapons like boneswords, strangle webs etc for tyranids.

    Come to think about it, Imperial Guard and Space Wolves and Grey Knights still need models.

    Shrug! Can I expect Codex Necrons in 2015 before the 2nd wave then? Or will they wait for 7th edition?

    I'm not complaining, just wondering if anyone can explain 'WHAT IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT'S SANE AND LOGICAL IS GOING ON HERE!!?'

  6. If the Dark Eldar are anything to go by, we're probably going to see some generous seasoning of Necrons intermixed with all this... This schedule only mentions codices, not mini releases, which can happen between major releases...

    I would agree however that other armies need more attention than another layer of vanilla Space Marines. That Codex is barely 4 years old (AFAIK) and Eldar and Chaos seriously need some love...

    Besides, what can they add in terms of minis to a Codex already overflowing with choices? Stormraven? Make it a WD update and call it a day...

  7. What's that I see in Q1 of 2013, less than a year out from the new edition? The very thing that my mere speculation of got me told to "go choke on a chode"?


  8. Poxy Proxy, this rumor is by Stickmonkey. There's no need to pay it any real heed.

  9. I'm pleased with the Tau rumour. Yey!

    I hope Templars are a proper codex and not a WD flop. Boo! Hiss!

    Don't mind which way round they're released. Templars are my favourite marines and I'm curious about the Tau.

    Very pleased these two are first and second for 2012.

  10. Space Marines before Chaos?
    Agreed with Anon. in that space marines already have too much. Anyway, there hasn't been a single rumour about Space Marines yet, so I would take that part with salt.

  11. At this rate I will have to buy a hat to eat if Eldar codex is the first codex to be released after the new rulebook.

    Don't get me wrong. I've wanted Eldar to be the first codex release for several editions now. Being biased and all.

  12. Yay! Tau still rumoured for early '12 release. As long as I'm not hearing Q4 or WD, I'm good.

    I have to admit, I'm expecting legions before eldar. There's been plenty of discussion about chaos and almost nothing about eldar. Granted: salt, salt, salt. But were there's. Smoke...

  13. the real releas scedual is

    6th ED


    more SMs ;)

  14. Seems like a lot of hogwash, guessing, and wishlisting.

  15. Most of the recent Legion rumours sound like brainstorming and spit-balling rather than finished codex concepts. Seems to me like they're early concept ideas, which suggests the codex is a long way off.

    Of course, they may just be rumours and guesses, but the same could be said of the Legions codex itself. :)

  16. for daemon hope they get rid of deep striking or just give em reserve only rule come on deep strike suks i come on board oh wait ill just sit here and get shot at and look at u please dont shoot me

  17. In planetstrike you can deep strike and assault. Wishlisting for daemons, and other deep striking gunless troops, is that this rule becomes universal for 6th edition.

    Again: "I'm wishing not rumouring"

    But that would make an all Khorne or Slaanesh army very deadly.

    Nurgle is a bit slow, but perhaps a plague bearer can cough flies, vomit or chuck a handfull of his own guts 6".

    Tzeentch just shoots everything on deepstrike and has a 50/50 chance of surviving ANYTHING the enemy throws at them. Screamers I would give a DE reaver style fly-by-smacking rule.

    At the moment I'm leaning towards Tzeentch. One word: Flamers! Enough said.
