There is so much on our plate that it is time to really dig in and take a look at the 40k release schedule and see just what it is that we will be looking at over the next 6+ months.
These are based on rumors and discussions, and I have put in my interpretation of the rumors, and with that, I hope that a few of our sources will chime in to correct this where necessary, and help refine this list.
Please remember that these are rumors.
Codex Release Order
This is the list that started it all some time ago.
I was under the impression it was Tau, Eldar, Orks, SM, Nids, then Guard?
75hastings69 answer. Move the orks
So with this and new developments, instead of moving the orks to the back like we had been, I am moving them behind Space Marines as some recent rumors have suggested, and inserting the Black Templar behind them.
Space Marines, Orks, Black Templar, Tyranids, Imperial Guard.
So when is all this going to come around?
