The Sons of Sanguinius and Army Boxes Arrive in this Week’s Games Workshop Pre-Order

Games Workshop gets loaded up for the holidays with the release of a new codex for Warhammer 40K and army boxes for 40K and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. Check out below what you can pre-order now!

Games Workshop Reveals their Codex Roadmap

Games Workshop has already announced what the next codexes will be but now we know when they’re being released.

In November, Deathwatch and Space Wolves will see their books released followed by Blood Angels and Death Guard in December 2020.

January 2021 will see two codexes, one of which is a xenos race.

That’s a pretty solid pace to get things rolling and sounds like that pace will keep going well into 2021.

Each codex will feature a code to unlock content in the Warhammer 40,000 app.
