Default GW Announce They are Getting Rid of a Codex!

Sorry if the title is a little confusing but imagine the scenario that GW suddenly decide they can't run the amount of armies they currently sell and have to get rid of one codex. Which one would you vote. Please vote in the poll.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

There isn't a poll..

I wouldn't want any removed. But if it was to one, GW would remove sisters.

naaa they are too iconic within the game and the Inquisition plays too much a role in the universe

that's what I voted for. It tripped me out that I saw 100% voted sisters, then I realized I was the only one that voted.

4,220 CSM
2,320 Necrons
1,870 eldar
1,000 witch hunters (trying to get rid of this)
1,000 SM (trying to get rid of this)
680 Tau (newest addition)

Yeah I'd vote Sisters as well, out of the all the playable factions they're the least important and/or iconic from a financial and fluff point of view.

In reality they could combine the two inquisition codices and and even combine the two choas codices too. But then I guess you could then argue that you could combine all the space marine codices as well...

It would be a hard one, to think of one to remove.

Remove the sisters? No nuns with guns? How can you not love that? ^_^

If any codex has to go, it's one of the numerous Marine ones. There's just too many of them. I'd get rid of the Dark Angels, since they're the least unique, and instead introduce a Dark Angels HQ that changes the rules of your army, as the Vanilla Marine HQs do, perhaps to allow Terminators to be troops, and all deep strike in on turn 1.

Second choice would be Chaos Daemons. I love the daemons, but I'd much rather have them grouped in with the Chaos Marines, in a single codex.

The first casualty of war is neither innocence nor truth.

The first casualty of war is always subtlety.

If they were gonna get rid of any, it should be the multiple space marine codexes... So many units are the same in them, it'd be easy to just remake them as a combined codex with unique units or rules seperately.

Heck, no-one remember 'Codex Angels of Death' where they had combined Blood angels and Dark Angels?

shame I can't vote for multiple, but I suppose getting rid of the basic marine codex would be a nice start to getting rid of the most boring damaging army in the game.

It would be a marine codex, most likely BA or DA as those 2 codices are the most similar to the base SM codex. I would remove the DA codex as you can already run a basic ravenwing army in the current SM codex.

If GW did have to get rid of a codex because of declining sales, I have a feeling they would off set the costs by making and selling pdf faction mini dex's. Something like having the base Eldar book then releasing a Corsairs mini dex, where it modifies a few units/rules and introduces 2 new HQ choices and some shoulder pads.

At least that would be my plan.
