Default New Imperial Guard codex

So it's been almost 4 years since the Guard got a new codex. Do you think they'll get one soon or are they set for a while longer do you think?

I don't think they're due very soon. Their codex shows a few signs of age due to 6th edition change making vehicles much less durable, but they were the only army that was perfectly capable of both air combat and anti-air from the get go. Remember how hydra flak cannons were the only unit with Skyfire when 6e rolled over? Yeah. They're still better than every skyfire option any army has, flakk missiles suck so hard it's not even funny.

They could use some point tweaks, but nothing major. Their problems are mostly found in their elites section, which is terrible, with the notable exception of Marbo. Stormtroopers are especially bad and need a point cost rehaul at the very least. It would also be nice to not have dozer blades that cost twice those of every other army.

The Death Korps falls under the IG codex right?

Yes and No

DKoK are a separate "seige" guard list available from FW

Although you can use DKoK models for a "Codex" IG force, as a siege force they have a lot of special units like thudd guns, heavy mortars, and breaching equipment which is not in the guard list. But they don't have access to Valkyries

So yes and no

Can't I just proxy them in for what the standard Cadian forces would be?

As always the revision schedule for GW Codices has nothing to do with the age of the Codex but more to do with the popularity of the Army.

From what I see IG is fairly popular so I'd be willing to bet it will happen sooner rather than later.

I'll go on record as saying that they will get an update before the Sisters do ! (Sorry Zed)

Okay lol That makes more sense. I thought they updated each codex after the latest rulebook came out too. Is that true?

Honestly, I'm perfectly fine with their current codex and not really even looking forward to another one. I'm afraid of what it might do to my army.

I've heard Ogryn are useless. and Stormtroopers are expensive as Hell.
