I know there's been a bit of scuttlebutt about a new Tau, Marine and Eldar Codex lately. However, Nightfury (as is unfortunately his style) has a few words to say on this regard:

Quote:
You won't get any new tau or eldar codex's. Supplements or data slates sure but an entirely new codex isn't happening anytime soon
In short - we might see something like a Suppliment: Biel-Tan or a Suppliment: Races of the Empire this year, but as for actual Codexes? Not happening. Besides, with Codex: Necrons released, that makes everyone bar Sisters updated to hardback and ready for 7th.

Being fair, a supplement may be like the Tyranids supplement giving them ~5 (?) new models, and a good half dozen formations.

A plan (almost ten years ago) was to get to the point where codex updates happen every couple of years without the need to add too many new models each time,
I think we are at that point now...........

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Well, Necrons sure got that treatment. They already had some cool stuff to be sure, but -one- HQ model? Right.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Just when you thought Forge World wrote crap, horribly imbalanced rules, GW gives 30k the Dreadfleet treatment...

That was a Campaign Book, but I see your point. Just don't expect any major Codex Releases this year.

Pretty much. They had the chance to do so with the Dark Eldar and 'Cron books, but opted instead to give units that lacked a model models (Voidraven), replace Finecast (Necron Lord) and cut unit options (most infamously Vect).

Interesting. Both Nightfury and Lords of War Gaming have solid track records.

Also "ready for 7th" isn't really a thing. You're either the current edition or your not. And Tau REALLY need an update to balance that mess they call a book. Too many things are auto choices while others are never used.

Not quite. It's a board game they're producing, not a full version of 30k. The point was that assuming they're reviving an old game is silly considering they could just as easily make something else.

A lot of people are putting their money on Nightfury however. The difference being Lords of War have gotten things wrong before. Apparently.
