Tau, they need a new 'dex

Through temptation and horror
I have held to my faith
As a drowning man grasps at a rock
Judge me not by my weakness
Remember not my sins of late

Two of the oldest codexes, Necrons & Dark Eldar have received some pretty recent updates, so I think the Tau (deserve to be) on deck next. There has been a lot of talk (or maybe even confirmation of a new Sisters of Battle codex, I'm not sure, I wasn't up on the rumours so I apologize) but I think Tau are much more deserving, especially because of higher support among players than other armies up for updates. Not to mention an update would increase support for the army. The Tau haven't received any major changes since the release of their codex but an update to better organize the army information (ie. from a page by page basis, to an army builder at the back) plus a new codex would definitely kick start their flow of new models (maybe even a few adopted units from Forge World, such as some of the larger battlesuits).

Should be updated, or are rumoured to be updated?

I think Tau and Sisters both deserve updates (in the case of Sisters, an ACTUAL update). But the rumour mill suggests Chaos Space Marines and Dark Angels are next up. Followed by Tau and then *possibly* Black Templars.

Chaos next, Dark Angels after that. Any further than that it's hard to say, though I do agree that Tau need some attention, as do Eldar.

Should be next?

Either Sisters of Battle (complete with proper 'dex and plastic kits) or Tau

Will be next?

Probably either Chaos Marines or Dark Angels

I personally don't think SoB should be the next in line for the new codex, from a bussiness point of view its definately not the most popular army and I think GW would not gain much profit from it. Unlike Tau and Chaos Space Marines, which are quite popluar armies I'd say they should probably be the next in line, even though I am a Chaos player I do think that the Tau should definately be the next to get an update and some new models. Maybe one unit that is okay in CC? Ha!

Chaos should be next imo, they need the update. Dark Angels I would like to be next, though fear what GW will do to them and I fear my army being rendered obsolete. Tau, Sisters, and Eldar should be on deck soon, I especially want firewarriors to be a competitive option and can't wait to see what they will do with the Eldar if they get new plastics.
