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.

Not sure where to start? Games Workshop has you covered with a new “Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000.” The new book breaks down every aspect and the fundamentals for those new to the hobby. That includes how to collect, build, paint, and play! The book also comes with a Primaris Assault Intercessor and Necron Warrior too!

Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000

But it’s not all Warhammer 40,000! Forge World has new Necromunda releases as well. House Escher gets new weapon options for the gang. Combi-weapons, blades, whips, and even a massive hammer are yours to arm your gang.

In between getting your forces ready, you can also get new releases from Black Library. Robert Rath’s Warhammer 40,000 novel, The Infinite and the Divine, tells a tale of discord between Trazyn and Orikan from their awakening around the time of the Horus Heresy, to the present day. Yes, learn more about the mysterious Necrons!

The Infinite and the Divine

War of the Orks, book 4 of Cavan Scott’s Warped Galaxies series of Warhammer Adventures, is coming your way as an MP3 audiobook. This tale, read by David Tennant, sees Zelia, Talen and Mekki continuing their search for the Emperor’s Seat. But shortly after arriving on the jungle planet of Weald, they find themselves inadvertently embroiled in a war between two rival tribes of Orks!

Qin Xa Joins the Hunt in the Horus Heresy

Forge World is back and up for pre-order is Qin Xa. The Master of the Keshig was frequently described by his Primarch as one of the most formidable warriors of the Legion. This new resin model is highly detailed and comes with a choice of helmeted or bare heads. Unlike many of his White Scars brothers, Qin Xa would march to war clad in a suit of Tartaros-pattern Terminator armor. Armed with a pair of matched Dao blades, known as the Tails of the Dragon, Qin Xa can cut through any traitor that gets in his way. And the final bit of details is his standing atop the ruins of a Contemptor Dreadnought. Qin Xa looks every bit the master of the hunt.

Qin Xa retails for $73 and is available for pre-order now.

With a New Edition of Warhammer 40k Comes New Codexes and Units

With the launch of the 9th Edition of Warhammer 40,000, Games Workshop held a “preview party” of what’s to come in the coming months.

As shouldn’t be surprising, the new edition will also be getting new Codexes.

Codex Necrons and Codex Space Marines

The first two to be released are Codex: Necrons and Codex: Space Marines which will be released in October.

The new Codex: Space Marines will replace the current 8th edition Codex as well as other “First Founding and Deathwatch codexes.”

In addition, players using Chapters covered in the last Space Marine codex can carry on using their expansions with the new book – White Scars, Imperial Fists, Iron Hands, Ultramarines, Salamanders, Raven Guard and Black Templars using their codex expansion in the Psychic Awakening series.

It’s also mentioned that Dark Angels, Space Wolves, Blood Angels, and Deathwatch will all be getting new codex supplements down the road to help tailor their army to really fit the chapter.

Codex: Necrons sees a complete reworking of the army to help diversify its gameplay. Players will be able to have a close-combat Necron force, a tide of Canoptek critters, a short-range force, it’s all there. There’s also new units and characters. What really stands out are new rules for custom dynasties and the legendary brass-armoured Szarekhan Dynasty. It sounds like Necrons will be getting a bit more choice along the lines of the other armies.

Space Marine Gladiator

The Space Marine Gladiator is a brand-new tank for Primaris Space Marines bringing the iconic Predator to their force.

The Gladiator is based on the Impulsor, like the Rhino was the basis of the Predator. And like the Predator there are multiple versions of the tank.

The Gladiator Valiant uses twin las-talons and multi-meltas to take on armor and heavy infantry.

The Gladiator Reaper is an infantry-killer. It features tempest bolters and twin heavy onslaught gatling cannons.

The Gladiator Lancer is an anti-tank sniper to take on war machines and monsters.

Necrons

The reveal wasn’t all Space Marines, the Necrons saw some love too with a new Monolith.

The new Monolith is bigger than the original with more detail and more dangerous on the tabletop.

What’s next?

During the presentation, Games Workshop also revealed the video below teasing numerous new miniatures. It looks like new Tyranids, Chaos Terminators, Drukhari, an Ork Boy (new kit? Yes please!) and a new Sister of Battle which you can see below.

The Sister of Battle Palatine is a new battlefield commander who works under a Canoness to coordinate forces.

Meet the Space Marine Hammerfall and Convergence of Dominion

There’s a lot of new toys and changes coming to Warhammer 40,000 and one looks like it’ll be taking a note from Warhammer: Age of Sigmar and having a bit of a focus on functional scenery.

Two new kits have been revealed for the game, one for Space Marines and one for Necrons.

The Hammerfall Bunker is a fortified emplacement whose entire role is to build a nice beachhead from which they can attack. The new fortification can feature heavy bolters or heavy flamers on the sides and a Hammerfall missile launcher up top featuring Superfrag and Superkrak missiles.

The Necron’s fortification is the Convergence of Dominion. Each one consists of three ancient Starstele which are armed with transdimensional abductors. They bolster units nearby and can perform Translocation Protocols to redeploy across the battlefield.
