Codex Drukhari and Death Angels are out in January 2021


Games Workshop revealed the first two codexes to be released in 2021. The Drukhari and Death Angels will each kick off the new year with new rules to freshen up the armies for the 9th edition of Warhammer 40K.

The Drukhari are the first xenos codex of 2021 and the updated rules make the army faster and deadlier than before.

The force features:

  • More attacks
  • Higher damage
  • Lethal combat output across the board

The new rules allow for a raiding force without being penalised in Command points. Don’t want that? How about a Wych Cult or Haemonculi COven? You’ve got that too. There’s also new Crusade rules for the force.

Here’s a taste of what’s coming with the new stats and rules for Incubi. With klaives now Damage 2, the Incubi can challenge Space Marines in combat.

Death Angels Codex

The Death Angels are the next Space Marine force to get a spotlight with their own codex. (Insert joke about the first Chaos codex release of 2021). Not only will you get the background on the secretive Space Marine Chapter, but there are also rules for:

  • Ravenwing
  • Deathwing
  • New Stratagem and Relics

A change already mentioned is Deathwing Vanguard Detachments and Ravenwing Outrider Detachments both getting the Objective Secured ability on some key units.

There are also new Crusade rules very focused on hunting the Fallen. Once you catch the Fallen, how about interrogating them!?
