[Archive] The mistery codex in 2010


Acording to Bell of lost Souls, later of September 2010, GW publish a mistery codex… http://www.belloflostsouls.net/2009/11/40kwfb-rumors-2010-schedule-fragments.html

Is a new race o is the return of a old army ? :o

Demiurgs ?

Chaos Imperial Guards ?

Adeptus Mechanicus ?

Ordo Xenos ?

Another ?


Chaos Dwarfs fingers crossed


battlecry FOR HASHUT!

Let is be our most beloved army, the Chaos Dwarfs! And if so let us all rejoice :wink:


It’s interesting to see that everyone on BoLS is convinced that it is a 40k army. Perhaps it finally is our turn.


If FWF are releasing some CD figures GW might bring out a book to coincide with that.

I’ll believe it when I see it though.


I think the idea that it’s a 40K book stems from the fact that September '10 is when we expect (roughly) to see 8th edition WFB…, so some sort of parallel big release…

Personally, I can see a WFB book rather than a 40K one… but either I’m taking with a pinch of salt…

Pyro Stick:

I like the talk of a new Grey Knights codex. I would love to see more models for them instead of just Grey Knights and GK terminators.


The first new book of 8th ed being Chaos Dwarfs? The perfect way to say ‘This is 8th ed, look how unbelievably awesome it is’? Its what I would do, but GW aren’t me. Probably Dark Eldar, they’re old enough to be classified as a ‘mystery army’ to most 40k playing kiddies.


I think it is very important to separate the rumours in this case.

People have been presuming there will be an end of 2010 codex (as in a 40k book) because of comments from harry and others and because necrons/ dark eldar are rumoured for very late in the year/ early 2011. So there could be a big gap, and there happens to be rumours of 40k armies being worked on.

Afaik there are no major new rumours anywhere about when the CD will get an update.



This message was automatically appended because it was too short.




Don’t even go there. :smiley:

I have my money on Black Templars or Blood Angels.


I like the return of the Chaos Imperial Guards.


Well there have been plenty of rumors around Warseer for a while. The big think abut this idthe comments that Harry has made which are listed in rumors thread.

The biggest thing is that it’s rumored to be an army that is an old one: to me that means CDs, Dogs of War, and Dark Eldar.


Im thinking it may be dark eldar but it will probably end up being the one of the legendary Codex “Random” marrines instead


I haven’t ruled fantasy out either, and I suspect it more likely with CD, DoW, Cathay, (a friendlier Fimir) and a few others to choose from.

Some 40k folks have this silly habit of referring to fantasy army books as a codex as well.


I just read that the Blood angels are getting a new codex etc… (though it will be april, so it might not be the mystery one ;3)

From the newsletter:

Incoming! Blood Angels

This April the Blood Angels will be re-launched with an all-new Codex and range of plastic and metal miniatures. One of the oldest and noblest of all Space Marine Chapters, the Blood Angels have stood fast against the enemies of the Imperium since the Great Crusade and it was their Primarch Sanguinius, who laid down his life to aid the Emperor against Horus in the final hours of the Warmaster�?Ts rebellion. The new Codex explores the background and history of these superhuman warriors like never before, and contains new artwork depicting some of their greatest battles and most powerful champions.

The Blood Angels have always been a powerful close combat army and have been made even deadlier thanks to a range of specialist wargear, the ability to field Assault Squads as Troops choices, and more Dreadnoughts than any other Space Marine Chapter, including a Death Company Dreadnought and the fabled Furioso Dreadnought. The Sons of Sanguinius will be deep striking onto a tabletop near you this April �?" now�?Ts the time to practice painting red.
let us just hope that they will also do a army book (chaos dwarfs? :3 come on, I’ve been a good boy last year ;D )


the Blood angels are getting a new codex
Woohoo more space nazis :~ sigh. If it absolutely has to be a 40k army, bring on the Dark Eldar.
come on, I've been a good boy last year
I think if CDO members combined all the years that we've been good, it would be enough to warrant an army book, a full figure range and an entire year of WDs solely about CDs. Oh wait a minute, we make our own 'zine and it kicks WD's ass so no use for that last part. :)

Kera foehunter:

Its probably Storm of Chaos round two!!

cds get there revenge


The whole ‘more and more marines’ thing is a classic case of chicken or the egg.

GW believe that because Marines are their best selling range they have to pump more and more into them, producing vast quantities of new minis and a new codex every couple of months. What the fail to think of is that if they put the same attenton into other popular armies such as Guard, Eldar and Orks then these armies might grow in popularity too. But no, more marines I see. Sigh.



Since when did corporate types use common sense?
