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

Hi,

Nipped in to Hobbycraft in Nottingham at the weekend and saw that the Necron Codex (all copies) had been reduced to clear along with the old WFB rulebook.

This may mean Necron's are out sooner rather than later as only time I have seen them due a clearence on GW stuff is when it is due to get replaced.
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.

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.... :scratchhead:

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

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.

I both anticipate and dread the update. It'll mean the Necrons finally get better at fighting, hopefully the stupid Phase Out will be omitted, and new models. Of course, they'll also make sure to gouge as much money out of us as possible through "gameplay changes" .

Provided it ever happens, of course. You figure an army of undead robots would have been far more popular than this, but I guess not =/

something is happening but I don't think we're talking near future here, I imagine the best scenario will be about a year away

I would like more troop and HQ variety in cron lists. Maybe some sort of alpha tomb spyder as a new HQ and scarabs in troops. When the 2 are taken then the scarabs ignore the swarm rule and thus can capture objectives. Would be more characterful.

Last October Jervis told me that the back story was being updated, which is the precursor for a codex update. Once they do that it takes another 12 months to write the codex. A release some time next year is not impossible.

I would like to see proof of this, everyone says they have talked to someone but there is no Solid Proof of these rumors.

I doubt that people are going to take tape recorders in a store just to "chat" with staff. And I doubt they would go on record anyway. There not going to risk their jobs for the sake of gossip.

Well you can either take all of whats written with a pinch of salt and hope for the best or wait until we get "solid proof" from a copy of White Dwarf the month before it comes out.
