Default New Necrons around the corner?

Surfing the web and came across this little bit of information on Warseer.

Obviously there could be other reasons for reducing the price of the book, like it's not selling very well, but it could mean a new codex is going to arrive sooner than we all thought.

The Necron codex has been cheaper than the newer codices for ages, nothing odd there. New Necrons are looming though, probably some time next year.

All that is important is known.

Yeah, necrons codex is only 12, I still think that possibly the Grey Knights and SOB are first, since their codexes have been pulled. But I wouldn't be surprised if they get an update next year.

They seem to be updating all the 3rd/2nd ed codexes before the 4th ed (not including SM)

Seems odd toreduce Necrons when reportedly, Dark Eldar are meant to be next, and their full range of stuff is still availible full price....

Interesting, hopefully it does mean they're closer to release than expected as I'm looking forward to Crons more the the DE.

Regards,
Jake.

The codex price has not been reduced. They have just remained cheaper.

Ahh.. just re-read and paid attention this time... It was being sold through Hobbycraft.... in other words, an independant retailer. Its no wonder they'd reduce it if it wasn't selling.

Just as an addition to this, I was in Hobbycraft in Cardiff and the Necron battleforce has been reduced to 35 from the usual 50.
