    New Codex?

    hey guys, just a quick question regarding the new 6th edition rules. Will there be new codex's to accompany the new rules? I'm not too keen on spending £60 on a new set of
    codex's...

    Thanks-

    One of the recent rumors showing new model releases after june of next year shows several new Ork kits in plastic and resin. This might indicate a new codex in the second half of 2013, or it might indicate new units with rules to appear in White Dwarf. Either way, don't let that stop you from getting the codex you want and playing the army you like.

    Nice to see another Scot on the board. As mentioned above, I'd expect a new codex but I think other armies need it more, so not any time soon. Frankly I'd settle for plastic meganobz and flash gitz, or even finecast ones in packs similar to the tankbustas. £15 a model is too much!

    Of course, you can always scratch-build your own. Most MANZ I've seen are made from a box of Nobz and a bunch of cut up bitz from some cheap AOBR Terminators.

    I don't expect a new codex...

    the current Ork book is still relevant and competitive in the current meta, so a FAQ update or WD addition will bring everything into line with 6ED.

    Also, considering the armies that should get a new book first, we won't see Orks next year... just not enough months in the year to release that many 40k books.

    I would say 2014-2015 at the earliest... if we see one before 7ED

    Honestly based on the number of supposed new models we have in our future, i suspect a new ork dex next year.

    Because as we've seen, GW cares less about balance then they do about sales. Orks are a popular army, sales are high, and a new book will only make them higher.

    There is a peace that can only be found on the other side of war
